Random Assortment

What’s to say, really? I haven’t posted in quite some time, and that’s my bad. So much insanity in life that it’s hard to keep track of everything. And, to be honest, blogging has been about the furthest thing from my mind. Someday, I may write LONG SERIOUS BLOG POST™ about the topic, but today isn’t that day. Mostly, I’m just going to ramble about rambly stuff.

The Job Hunt

It’s going pretty well, actually. I’ve been interviewing at local agencies and it’s been going extremely well. There’s this one where I’ve really, really enjoyed the process of the interviews, and I hope like hell that I get it. The last I heard, they were hoping to make a decision on Friday and then make some notifications next week. Fingers crossed. If I don’t get it, I’ll be pretty bummed out. BUT. There are other irons in the fire, so I won’t be despondent or anything.

Vikings

Who are these guys? Our defense is absolutely dominating and our secondary is fucking awesome (never thought I’d say that about the Purple). On offense, AP is fucking tearing it up and is actually a tiny bit ahead of where he was through nine games in 2012. The single-season rushing record is a possibility, but he’s going to have to run like he’s possessed for these last seven games.

And we’re sitting in first in the NFC North. What the fuck is that all about? Oh, and we play the Pack today. Beat them and we’re two games up. And we own the tiebreaker right now.

Five Thirty Eight has us at 82% to make the playoffs. 47% to win the division. I’m flabbergasted at this point. Coach Zimmer has GOT to be a consideration for Coach of the Year.

For once, the Vikings aren’t pissing me off.

Geekery

I’ve been thinking more and more about science lately (and reading a lot of New Scientist). Specifically because I’m braindumping notes on my next novel, which is a near-future thriller. At some point, I’m going to try to put down a brief post in here about the three most important discoveries/tech creations of the 21st century. Two of them have already happened and are in-use…and a large majority of you have never even heard of them.

Bike Stuff

I keep getting interrupted in my quest for a solid 2016 on the bike. I’ve spent most of the last three weeks sick, and still have a bit of a cough, which is not really conducive to going to the gym. In the coming days, I’m going to pull out the ol’ Training Bible and start really getting into designing a new training program. Still have all my old spreadsheets, so it’ll be pretty easy to bang this out.

The Kids

Pretty awesome.

Eddy’s therapy has been helping a ton with his behaviors, and the boys are actually playing. He looks out for Sam now, comforts him at daycare dropoffs, shows affection for him, and tries to involve him in play. It’s pretty amazing to see.

Sam is on the cusp of two years old and already has a pretty extensive vocabulary (I’d estimate that it’s over 100 words at this point), and is doing sentences of 3-4 words on a pretty regular basis. Recently heard:

  • “My shoes light up.”
  • “There is rain on my window.”

Pretty much the exact opposite of where Eddy was at at this age.

Writing

Going okay. I’m going to try to start posting here again, semi-regularly.

And You?

What’s new with you?
