Who’s Good at Updating Their Blog?

Not me. Sorry for being so lazy about updating. I’ve honestly come close a couple times. But then I think about what anecdote or meaningful thought to share…and come up empty. I continue to read my friends’ blogs, and many of them are content to do a little post every day or so without it being ground-breaking news, so I should probably just relax and make the effort.

#1 thing on most peoples’ minds: work. It’s still going well. This whole last week, 2 people I work closest with (including my boss) have been out of town. So it’s been just me and 2 other HR people. It’s felt pretty laid-back and low-stress. I had a couple big projects that I finished, and have really pouring on the quality HR-traits: efficiency, accuracy, and consistency.

It’s hard to believe it’s already been nearly a month. Hopefully, they’ll realize that the company is so much better off with me around, that this will lead to a permanent placement.

On the church-side of things…I’ve run the board for a couple Sundays and several practices, so I’ve been given a green light. They’re drawing up the paperwork for me to be officially hired by the church as a member of the sound/tech crew. That extra money every now and then will definitely help…plus it’s fun and good experience.

Bye for now.

LOST cast Tuesday

Apparently, tonight is a special “Lost” feature on cable TV. I’m flipping back and forth between Spiderman 2 and The Mummy Returns.

In Spiderman 2, Daniel Dae Kim (Jin) is an assistant to Doc Ock.
In The Mummy Returns, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko) is one of the main bad guy warriors, and Jonathan, Brenden Fraser’s brother is played by Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond).

"It was a dark and stormy night...

...I had taken a creative writing course." (That's from MST3K)

We've had some rain/thunder/lightning pretty much every afternoon/evening for the last week or so, but today was crazy. It's pretty odd driving home from work seeing big lightning bolts strike the ground just a few hundred feet away...several times a minute! And the thunder gets pretty big too...I could feel it in my hands while holding the steering wheel.

This isn't a picture that I took or anything, but it's not unlike what we're seeing around here. Pretty awesome.
