Saturday Chatting

I know, how awful am I to promise better attention to the blog, then disappear again for two weeks, right? Life has just been very busy and chaotic for a while.

Spring is suddenly here full force — it has been around 75°F all week, and the birds, who so plagued me last spring with their cacophony, are back. For some reason, they don't stop me from sleeping this year. Could it be I have grown old and deaf? Or perhaps it is because I've been sleeping like a log — a train could run over me and I wouldn't know it.

I lost a few rose bushes and one tree over the winter, and I have 5 roses outside waiting to be planted. I'm telling myself I'll get it done tomorrow. Knowing me, however, it is only 50/50 likelihood. Procrastinators unite... tomorrow! The garden also needs raking, mulching, clipping and you name it. As much as I tout that I love gardening, I doubt I'd be very opposed to having a gardener who would come and do all the grunt labor, leaving me with the fluffier aspects of tending a garden.

Workwise, I'm also busy — I haven't had any translating for a few weeks (which is just as well), but I've had a few websites to do and Luminarium of course is a jealous mistress. Sometimes the task seems so daunting that I have to take a break entirely. One human life doesn't seem long enough to get everything done that I'd like. So if anyone has an interest in Medieval/Renaissance English literature and/or history and wants to volunteer, drop me a line :D Also hiring houseboy, cook, and laundryboy. All interested parties are requested to apply in person, tehee!

Well, that's it for right now — running to a dinner and a movie.

Ah, so you're doing web dev too besides luminarium. Cool! Are any of them ones you can share links to?

I've been designing web sites since 1996, but very few in the last two years (friends, family & referral only). Naah, I don't wanna, because most of the time I hate the end results, because you have to please your client... and most of the time the clients have questionable taste :D Friends and family exempt, of course :D

I heard the call for procrastinators to unite? I must say, I'm definitely guilty of being a procrastinator, so I have come. :) Wanted to see how you've been doing and say hey. I also found something on youtube that reminded me of you, and some stuff you've had on here.

I know you've had some opera stuff on here in the past, and this kid is really impressive I thought. Wish it was a longer clip of him singing, but I think you may like it anyway. And if only you lived closer! I can't say I have a green thumb or anything, but I don't mind the labor as long as its outdoors ;) Hope to talk to you soon! And don't work yourself too hard.
