Buzzing beehive in my head

I've enjoyed cruising through my Friends list so much that I'm finally, with even a bit of guilt, going to try to post here a bit more often.

Part of the reluctance to post is not seeing why the daily trivialities of my actions might interest others. But I've realized that those are just exactly the parts I find intriguing to encounter, so perhaps the feeling is mutual.

Today's task is to post a bunch of Magic cards on ebay, leftover stock from when the bookstore was a major source for the Crack of Gaming. Gotta finish up before noon, because then I need to head down to Rogers Park (the park itself, which is in the Chicago neighborhood of the same name) to help with next autumn's AYSO soccer registration, and then watch my son's 3:45 game.

Tasks for this evening include starting work on a costume for Marty (he wants to be Link at the upcoming anime convention), setting up to polyurathane a tabletop for my being-constructed workdesk, packing up and shipping out our collection of Ranma 1/2 VHS tapes (having found an interested youngster who will enjoy them), and continuing the monumental task of preparing the household for our relocation from Chicago to the Seattle area (we'll be moving at the end of July).

But what's in my head are thoughts of websites that would be fun to work on. Not profitable, or even useful, just fun. Like an index of all the issues of Pyrotechnics. Or a website called where I give my own translation of some of the recent political speeches and newspaper articles, since it always seems like I hear a different version than they're saying. Or posting my hand-drawn study guide for learning hiragana and katakana, which folds into a scrap only 1.5" x .5" x .25" and can be pulled out to study whenever I'm stuck somewhere for a bit. Or...but I think you get the idea.

Now, off to ebay - of maybe I'll make breakfast first.

  • Wow, has it really been two years since I posted here?!?

    I know I haven't done as much with social media as I used to - and what time I do spend on it is mostly cruising FaceBook and Tumblr, but I had NO…

  • A weird night and an unsettled morning

    Generally, my sleep pattern is delightfully boring: I get tired around 10 PM, will sometimes read or cruise the 'net until no later than 11, and fall…

  • Just a test

    Because I want to see if things work like I think they do when I post a link here. Shelf Life, edited by Greg Ketter
