Haven’t posted since Monday, and some people are getting worried, so let’s do this thing, with the help of my raindrop icon:
Our rainy season is continuing in a major way, which is VERY uncharacteristic for this area for this time of year. Usually there’s no foreseeable chance of rain for a month or so by this point in June, but instead there’s no foreseeable chance for this ending for more than a day. It’s rained on Oklahoma City for 18 days in a row, breaking a 100-year old record. For us, storm systems have been stacking up like planes waiting to land at a major airport, with a major downpour rolling in about every 4 hours for the past week now. (Today I think we only had three come through where I was.)
Anyway, I like this better than drought.
It has come to my attention that on or about the 19th, when I said I was ending my two-month daily posting streak, some people thought that meant I was quitting blogging.
Yeah, you wish.
I mention this because I talked to my mom just now, and she said she ran into contry singer Jake Kellen‘s mom (long story) in the post office, and she asked my mom why I had quit blogging.
Apparently she gave up on checking back in after that, and hasn’t seen me posting since then.
Don’t give up, people. (A better explanation is here.)
Anyway, my writing has tapered off because our frivolous overtime continues at work, and it’ll only get worse in the next week or so. My department might not even get July 4th off, because our project manager decided to take all of last week off, just as we’re getting into crunch time, so now we all have to work late, holidays and weekends to make up for lost time.
Yes, I agree with what you’re thinking.
Also, I bought a 320 GB hard drive from Office Depot on SlickDeals.net for $50 after rebate, plus a bonus mini-TV, with free shipping. Seriously, SlickDeals doesn’t mess around.
Anyway, I’ve been installing that and reinstalling Windows plus every piece of hardware and software I’ve got, and encountering problem after problem which I won’t get into here.
So get off my freaking back about not posting.
But thanks for caring, all the same …
