Alright, time to start up again!

Blogging takes discipline! Rawr.

Alright, so, when last we spoke I was settling in in Chicago. Consider me basically settled at this point.

Important updates:

1) I has kittens. Two of them. They're named Finnegan and Puck, and they are 11 weeks old. Finnegan is a grayish tabby, who is a little bit dumb and extremely gorgeous. Puck is black, (prematurely graying? it's hard to tell...) ugly as sin, ornery as Rooster Cogburn on a bender, smarter than he has any right to be, and potentially evil. I insist they're named from their respective Joyce and Shakespeare. The girl insists they're the first names of the male leads in "Glee." We have yet to see how that shakes out.

2) I'm employed. Finally. I now work for a test prep company. If you have been to university in the last several years, you know what tests I'm teaching. Chances are, you know which company it is, too. (It was the first test prep company that popped into my head.) Frankly, it seems pretty much fool proof. It is fairly challenging, at least during this part of my training. Eventually I assume it will be somewhat mindless and soul-sucking. I don't really care, though. It's work. The hours are good. The pay doesn't completely suck. Yay!

I'll try to be on here a bit more. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view) that probably means that this blog is going to head in a nerdy direction PDQ. (That's "Pretty Damn Quick," BTW.) (That's "By The Way," BTW.) Potential upcoming posts include a quick summary of my ongoing attempt to finally finish watching BSG (Battlestar Galactica), the absolutely ridiculous MTG shenanigans going on between my friends at (Magic: The Gathering), or perhaps even the current state of my leveling rogue in WoW (World of Warcrack).

Stay tuned for kitten antics, work griping, and MATYCSASA. (More Acronyms Than You Can Shake A Stick At.)


  1. Yay for Shakespeare kitties! My first cat was Ariel (spirit, not mermaid) :)

  2. A) Puck is not ugly! He's cute as a button, so there!
    B) I did not purposefully name them based on the male leads in Glee, however, after days of working on names, those do happen to be the names we ended up with. I was just pointing out the coincidence. :-)
