The Litany of Days


Writing php code, wrestling with Oracle, writing java code, wrestling with Oracle, writing the novel, staring at the scenery wondering if I missed my stop, playing with the kids, wondering where the night went, sleeping (not enough), writing code, wrestling Oracle, writing the book, playing with kids, wondering, sleeping, writing, writing, writing, playing, wondering, sleeping (not enough!). Repeat.

That’s been my week. Off to Portland tomorrow for Orycon. I didn’t make the cut for programming so I’ll be haunting the bar through Sunday. Saturday night, though, me and the lovely wife are going to see The Sisters of Mercy.

I know. Who would have thunk it? Still not a goth band, apparently. I love the quote on the website: “We are a rock’n’roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. And intellectual love gods in our spare time.” The “intellectual love god” part is, I’m sure, supplied by an upgraded Doktor Avalanche.

Anyway, that’s the end of the week. Next week, I’ll be guest blogging over at Jeff Vandermeer’s site, where I’ll attempt to find enough entertaining things to talk about so that I don’t have to resort to cheap theatrics with the rabbit suit.
