Leap Day

It’s that weird, misty day that only appears every four years because the Earth can’t be asked to revolve around the sun in a way that’s convenient to us with our arbitrary calendar system.

I like that. The earth is going to do what it wants and we just have to keep up with our measuring systems. And we aren’t doing the job at 100%, so we get a slightly longer year every now and then. One last day of February.

There’s some more coding research that I’m hoping to get done today, and I’d like to get a few more things taken care of on the backend of this blog before I’m willing to call it’s setup complete. Luckily, I have an extra day.

PAX East

Today was the last day I’ll be spending at PAX East this year. The show was great and everyone there is friendly and there is always a party atmosphere, which is more than can be said for most cons. However, it is nice to only spend a two days there as opposed to the entire four days. I think I’m becoming entirely too anti-social to be surrounded by that many people for that long.

So I escape to hide from sunlight and humanity until PAX next year.

No Coffee

I don’t drink coffee in the morning. (There, now that I’ve scared off most of you, I can be frank here on my little slice of the Internet.)

I did, however, get up this morning and drag my bones to PAX East with my wife. The gruff bastard that is New England weather behaved itself for at least as long as it took to get us to the convention center. There the wind made of up the difference and peeled my skin down to the aforementioned bones.

The con, however, was lovely.
