Another weekend, another LAN. It wasn’t too frickin’ bad, except for the heat. Even in air conditioning, it’s pretty stinkin’ hot…especially when you have a bunch of geeks clustered around hot computers all day and night. It seems that we’ve gotten to the hotter point of the summer already. It’s 97 today, with a helluva lot of humidity. I need a swim 😛
Cubs won last night. Normally, I wouldn’t be so excited about a Cubs victory, except that they seem to be losing so much this season *le sigh* Poor Cubbies.
I’ve named the kitten Wrigley. He and Penny seem to be getting along a good bit better nowadays. They were horsing around with each other this morning, tackling each other like mad. I think that they’ll be smashing together. I’ll probably bring him in to the vet this week for a check-up and shots that I know he’ll need.
Closing is going to be on the 28th, less than two from weeks now. I need to do some major cleanup around my place this week. I’m not really concerned about getting the security deposit back from the apartment, because I’ve heard people have really gotten screwed royally by them. I have a feeling that even if I got the place spotless by professionals, they’d probably find some reason not to give me the deposit. I pretty much count those deposits as black-holish as rent itself.
So, cleanup will be getting rid of stuff I haven’t used in a long time. I’ll probably start packing up little stuff like books and all that good stuff.
Crazy stuff has been going on in the Middle East of-late. Israel has been pounding the hell out of Hezbollah in Lebanon. Potentially scary stuff, that’s for sure. I have a feeling we’re in store for more violence than any of us here in the States could ever imagine. I hope I’m wrong.
Discovery comes back tomorrow. I wish the crew well and hope they get home safe.
I’m watching Field of Dreams for the first time in years. It’s a helluva tear-jerker at the end.
On a brighter note, here’re some more house pics, for those who might be interested. I went through it again today with the parents.
