Life has been busy, but it's still a bit much to keep up with it all!
At work, it's performance-review time, I'm once again (1.5 years after my last unsuccessful effort) going up for promotion, and I think my case is strong this time. But explaining my work in a high-stakes way to a group of people who probably don't know anything about my work, well, that's way more stressful than doing my work is at the worst of times. Still, most of my work for that is done, and my actual-job work has been going well.
Last weekend, Julie and I went to NYC. Got a much-needed mini-vacation, got a bit of rest, ate some amazing food (Indian Road Cafe is a beautiful spot with an amazing brunch, the chicken and waffles at Sweet Chick was phenomenal, Puddin' continues to be my top candidate for the next fancy-desert trend, the sandwiches at Xe Máy were amazing, and Booker and Dax's cocktails set the standard for bartending-meets-mad-science). Was lovely to see Nikki and Emmett again, with time for actual conversation (last time I saw them was at the wedding, which was wonderful but a bit of a whirlwind). We saw the all-star-cast version of Waiting for Godot, excellent acting and a way weirder play than I remembered (and I remembered it as pretty strange). Missed Boston's St. Patrick's Day Parade (just as well), but managed to have some good beer.
Today, finished playing a run of Jenna Moran's awesome, meta-fictional (meta-ludological?) aptly-named tabletop game WTF with Xavid and Co. It was fun, and quite playable, even without the supplement (which we didn't need, but makes some amount of sense now that I've played the game).
Looking forward to another weekend.
