your laugh is like an angel snorting

More of the same, and by "the same" I mean "different."

Still keepin' on, keepin' on. Still spending most of my time on work for OnLive, entertaining and/or teaching my kids, trying to make money on the side, and some time, but never enough, with rightkindofme.


I've finished two chapters of my new Ruby Deployment class and about a video and a half. I'm writing the third chapter, editing the second video, getting a camcorder to record a third tech-talk video... So much to do, so much to do.

Shanna has recently recorded her first and second Minecraft tutorials with me. I need to edit those, too.

I've fallen off the wagon on weightlifting, just shy of being able to squat my own body weight, and bench-pressing about 150lb. It's been over a week since I lifted.

Gave three tech talks recently on Ruby app server and concurrency stuff. One more coming up, and then I'll probably take a break for a bit. But we'll see - that could still be a rich source of videos for the class, and I haven't been recording them. Will change when I get the camcorder.

Cooking. Lately that's figuring out how to do elimination-diet stuff for Krissy - no eggs, no gluten, no soy, no corn, only a specific limited set of vegetables... It's interesting working with such a limited palette of ingredients. I'm learning how to do it, texture- and chemistry-wise, but it's taking a lot of research and experimenting.

It's hard to believe we're down to six-ish weeks left in the year. So much I want to do, so little I have time for. In some ways it's a lot like cooking for the elimination diet -- less "what do I want to do?" and more "what do I have to work with?"
