Still in the States

Monday, December 31st, 2007

We just got back from “the country” visiting Muse‘s family where Internet access is still pretty much an unknown service.  No contact with the rest of the world for five days.  Talk about feeling isolated.  I like the woods but no Internet access is a horrible thing.

However, you can shoot things in the woods, so I did some target practice with Muse’s Dad’s .45 six shooter and his 9mm at some boxes that used to have Christmas gifts in them.  I hit the targets more often than not.  You have to keep up your zombie survival skills, you know.

We have eaten more since we’ve been back in  the states than we can possibly process within normal human limits.  Especially since our bodies are used to Hong Kong foods and meals now.

Well its almost bed time so that’s all the updates for now.  Muse is feeling a little sick so she needs some rest.

Merry “belated” Christmas

Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to everyone.  Yes I know it’s all technically over right now but we haven’t gone to bed yet so it’s kinda like it’s still Christmas.

And we’re

leeeaaavin’ on a jet plane
we do know when we’ll be back again

OK never mind.  But check out my wife’s angelic voice over on her site with her Christmas caroling. The crappy microphone I have just doesn’t do her talent justice.  Your loss.  Sorry.

We are packed and we are less than an hour till ‘go time’.

Happy Holidays in case I don’t make it to a PC before Christmas.

I seem to be normal

HAHAHAHA!  Yeah right.  OK but at least my stomach is back to normal.  I’ve been eating real food for the past two days.  Real food…  make that any food really.

Anyway, just thought I’d mention that as I try and rush out the door from work here so I can go home and pack.  We leave tomorrow afternoon for our holiday in the States and I’ve been so sick (and busy) that we haven’t even begun to pack.  Or at least this part of ‘we’ hasn’t.

Well I’m off.  In many ways I suppose.

Still sick and still have to work

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

I’m still sick.  I still have to work.  And Burrito the cat got his little protective cone collar put back on last night because of a complication with his tail so all the animals kept us up all night long.  Because they are terrified of a kitty with a lampshade around it’s head.  So I can add no sleep to the above because of the animals and because I would get so thirsty I would wake up for a drink.

I felt like I was drunk this morning between the medication, lack of food and lack of sleep.  And I’ll be working a double shift today while we get all the servers backed up, mailboxes moved to Tokyo and shut down all the equipment.  Then I need to take all the ISP equipment and our router over to the new office.  It’s going to be a very long day.
