Still screwy

Monday, October 30th, 2006

You know, I just realized that the server setup is still screwy. I think I’m gonna have to decide to post elsewhere for now… I’ll sleep on it, let you know later where I will post until this system gets straightened out.
(How do I know it’s screwy? I’ve lost all my online email. Yippee!)

Finally a new post

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Right then, that out of the way.
Having the manuscript rejected really threw a wrench into my schedules. I was hoping to have that part of my life done with, and be able to concentrate on new things. Like this coming month’s research project, which is an entirely different project. And the new abstracts I’m working […]

Old posts, part 2 (and 3)

Monday, October 30th, 2006

More old posts:
(2) Complaining that people can’t do their jobs right:
They can’t. It seems that when a lot of people have to go through some sort of computer system or service, other people go through fine, but something has to go wrong for me. There isn’t a single thing that can go through flawlessly without […]

Old posts, part 1

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Right then, I guess I should get to updating my posts that were lost…
(1) Something about missing my blog while it was down and being happy it was back up. Most of that had something to do with my nephews 2nd birthday, and basically gushing about how silly and cute he is.

Hesitant

Saturday, October 28th, 2006

After the mysteriously disappearing posts, I’m a bit hesitant to make any significant posts right now…
I will say, however, that I’m really quite excited about spending November in San Francisco.

Huh?!

Thursday, October 26th, 2006

OK, this is weird. I just lost a bunch of entries… Everything since the move, actually…
A post about how I was happy the blog was back up, with summary of interim posts on LiveJournal… and a post about how people can’t just do their jobs right… and another about my manuscript getting rejected by a […]

Nearly TWO

Sunday, October 15th, 2006

How time flies! My nephew is nearly two (he will be in a couple of weeks) and #2 is on its way even!
Yesterday night, having toughed out the bad part of my cold, I went to dinner with my relatives, since an uncle was in town. Of course my little nephew was there. Thankfully we […]

Sickering

Friday, October 13th, 2006

I’m becoming sick, I think. Started off with one stuffed nostril this morning, became continuously stuffed, then irritated, then sneezing, now a little sore in the throat and feeling a little unwell in general. I hope this goes away soon.

Making caffé

Monday, October 9th, 2006

In Florence, I had bought a little stainless steel moka pot and some moka coffee beans. Since today was a holiday and I had time in the morning, I decided to try out making some coffee. Ended up making three cups of macchiatto for the family. The moka pot, for those who don’t know, is […]

He loves me!

Saturday, October 7th, 2006

Just got back from dinner with the family, and of course my little nephew. He’s going to be 2 by the end of this month! He is getting very smart. He knows all his body parts, colours, alphabet, a bunch of songs, and lots of words and little 2-3 word sentences. He was trying to […]
