Well, this past week I've been knocked on my ass by this flu-like virus that's been going around town and lasts forever. That might have led to more frequent updates on my blog, detailing the extensive playing of Civilization IV and playing Scrabble against myself (I'm reading a great book about competitive Scrabble players called Word Freak) that I've been up to lately. Except I just moved back into my place after house-sitting for the past month or so, and the wireless internet wasn't working to get access in my room. Luckily, yesterday, my fourth day off work this week (which is unheard of for me!), I gave myself a two-hour crash course on wireless networking and - voila! - I'm back on the interweb.
Speaking of technology, I forgot to mention that I received my new computer a few weeks ago - a shiny white MacBook; isn't she beautiful?
Most other happenings you can read about on other people's blogs. There's a tattoo artist staying at my house (who does great work, btw) who gave Kate Nova a new tattoo. I went to a party last weekend and Inflatable Elvis took a picture of me with cop shades. And, you can learn the big curling news in town through Townie Bastard. Speaking of curling, I've been throwing some pretty good rocks skipping my team lately, which makes me really happy to say. I really dig curling. Stay tuned to find out how well (or not) we do in the playoffs and upcoming bonspiel at the end of the month.
