Holiday Weekend in Review

Saturday: BBQ with the freaks in Pittsfield. Hanging around, grilling, and a bonfire with friends from around the country. Lots of fun... I wish we could have stayed all weekend.

Sunday: Dinner with Peter and Meredith in Somerville. Very good Tibetan food, followed by beer at the Burren and cider at the Joshua Tree. Always good to see my Milwaukee homies.

Monday: BBQ and Fireworks with the Purple Scorpion folks in Salem. Leo, Leo, and Judy always put on a good shindig. It seems like I ate and ate, but never quite filled up. The fireworks were very nice... a good display out over the harbor, with a band playing rock blocks of Gershwin. It was nice to be able to stay in town and celebrate without fighting the crowds in Boston.

Tuesday and Today: Back to work... this time of year is always a little strange in the workplace. Lots to do, plenty of deadlines... and everyone is on vacation. Including the people who I'm supposed to be delivering files too. Whatever. I'm just trying to stay ahead of the wave of work that is constantly threatening to crash down on my head. Summers used to be slow at this company. Not so much anymore.

In other news: I'm developing a fascination for strange podcasts from around the globe. Today's favorite: (Cool) Shite on the Tube. Four Australian guys sit around and give review and commentary about cinema and DVDs, with a preference toward sci-fi and anime. The reviews are okay, but the real entertainment is listening to them rag on each other. Good stuff!
