Weekend Warriors...NOT (continued)

I had originally planned to wake early (before 10:00 AM) on Sunday to attend one of my favorite cardio classes. But R. turned over and snuggled and I was immediately knocked senseless in a warm and loving embrace. We finally crawled out of bed. Repeating Saturday, we spent most of the morning surfing the Internet: I on my blog and Tribe.net; R. looking for more anime cells.

Weeks ago I had found out that author L.E. Modesitt would be signing at Mysterious Galaxy. R. and I originally planned to go together but, due to work obligations (which was negated by lack of connectivity to the workplace databases), I drove down solo.

(All images found the Internet and belong to their respective owners.)

I enjoyed Modesitt's low-key presentation and will go in depth in a later post. I also purchased a couple of hundred dollars worth of books. (Which is not bad, considering we've easily spent 2-3 times that much on average.) Drive back home was crowded, unfortunately. But R. welcomed me back with open arms and drove us for din-din.

I spent the rest of the evening preparing a resume for a perm job position* while R. read.

*My current job and what's happening to it will require another post.


  • Man, you're a tease! What's going on with the job, huh?

  • Re: job.
    You're going to have to wait. I've blogged from work before and IT may look in and I don't want to mess up job prospects.

  • I'm just so bad at waiting. I don't have the patience for it. Sigh.

    Think how fast it'll take to write a novel, submit it to publishers, the rejection slips, the acceptance, the contracts, the rewrites, the final editing, then the publication of the book.

    My post will be a lot faster ;-)

    Mostly hardbacks so it was, like, seven books.

  • couple of hundred $. holly molly. do u give out library cards? and free shipping? lemme borrow a few.

  • What's a library card? ;-)

    Seriously, we have a book business (www.bookpile.com) and all these things become part of the stock.

  • I love the pictures you use on your blog...very unusual! ;-) I have yet to read anything by Modesitt, but have heard the name often. Any particular book you recommend?

    Good luck with the job search. I can understand being careful. I heard after I left my last company that they were actually scanning all incoming/outgoing e-mail for anything related to job searches!
