7:52 am - Lj is 18!?
And this LJ is a few days short of 17. And I haven't used it much in the last 15 years, either.

Of course, many of the people I discovered it with aren't around much either, many deleted or idle accounts.

I keep thinking I will be back, use it again. Permanent Account status and all.

Only 2295 people have been on here longer than I have been here. Which is probably mostly just cool to me...

6:49 pm - New Job, New City, but Not Moved, Really
Now I live in Elk River, work in Duluth, and sleep work nights in Superior, WI. The commute would be a bit rough otherwise, heh.

But yes, now I am finally once more working in my original field, at WDSE/WRPT in Duluth, public broadcasting, baby!

I know it is in my bio already, but my current podcast is "IdjitCast" which is an introcast for the TV series "Supernatural." I am one of the newbies, so I am staying spoiler-free. We are just starting out Season Three. This means we will be making new episodes for quite some time yet.

The completed podcast is The Ghostlight Podcast, an introcast for the TV series "Slings & Arrows."

I'll be appearing this fall in Geek by Night. I had previously appeared in the previous version of the series, but this is a clean reboot, and I am in an entirely new role. For anti-spoilers' sake I will leave off any more about my character. The show is really funny and I highly encourage you to check it out!

8:15 am - New Podcast This Year
I'd like to belatedly tell all my LJ followers who I don't already have on FaceBook about my new podcast. It is called The Ghostlight Podcast, an Introcast for the Television Series "Slings & Arrows."

The basic concept of an introcast is a rewatch of a television series in which only one of the reviewers has seen the entire series, while the other members of the podcast are as unspoiled as possible.

"Slings & Arrows" is a Canadian comedy-drama which was produced for pay cable about a major Shakespearean theatre festival (not Stratford in name, but basically Stratford).

We have recently been on unplanned hiatus, but we plan to return to a biweekly publishing schedule in November. This is a great time to catch up with us!

Our episodes post at http://www.quadruplez.com and we just released the episode for Season One, Episode Five last night.

3:38 pm - New Year...
I can't say I will be posting daily to LJ, necessarily, nor will all the posts be public when I do, but I am committing to writing every day this year, with license to suck invoked. I have a notebook to cover at least a bit of the first part of the year, essential as I do not have personal computer time nor internet access for a lot of my day. I may take some time to rework some Really Big Things, some time for expanding that universe, and possibly some time on the courier story idea as well. Depending on how much I get on LJ, and how I feel about it, there will be friends-only and occasional public entries over the next year.

8:40 pm - Anonymous Spam...
Tempting to turn off anonymous comments, but I still wonder if folks without LJ's might like to comment. Of course, I also use this very little...

I occasionally try to check in on old friends on LJ, and find they too have either lapsed or left...

10:26 am - This Year
In February, my company failed, leaving me without 3 weeks of pay, and ineligible for immediate unemployment benefits because I had been working for a theoretical paycheck I might still receive (ha, still waiting.)

Also in February, Darcy lost some daycare clients. This occurred a few other times over the course of the year, and at least at present she is near capacity.

In April, I started a new job, which was good except I'm working nights, sleeping days. More on this later.

In July, I got in my car, started it and burning coolant billowed from the exhaust. We worked out how to pay for a new (to us) car that was pretty decent.

In early August, I spent a week working days covering for a vacationing cow-orker, then went back to nights. This was a rough switch, as was evidenced by the slow-speed crash of the car into a median when I dozed literally a few seconds behind the wheel. I was alone and uninjured, the airbags did not even deploy.

But the insurance company still totalled out the car. We were out part of our down payment, but managed to figure out a down payment for another not as neat new (to us) car.

In October, we went to Boston for my sister-in-law's wedding. Fox was ill and wound up in Boston Children's Hospital's ER for a good 5-6 hours. Insurance paid about half that $1400 bill.

In November the Dr. let us know Fox's already-slow growth was dropping further off the charts, and we needed to investigate his poor eating habits and possible endocrine disorders. Not jumping to conclusions, but if he needs human growth hormone injections it will cost us at least a couple K a month to maintain those.

So with that year so far, it was entirely anomolous that our neighbor's 18 year old daughter we have known about a year would nominate us for KDWB's Christmas Wish program, and that we would be granted clothes, toys, games, and other things to make our planned meager Christmas into what may be the best we've ever given the kids. Katelynn went out of her way to write a nomination letter and go into the studios to tell of our year. We are so very thankful for this.

4:15 am - Ripper
If the name comes from college days, perhaps Giles was known for Parker-style antics with ladies of, shall we say, little experience?

This post inspired by listening to the PotentialCast. http://potentialcast.blogspot.com

2:40 pm - Social Media Cheater
Hey, LJ. How's it hangin'?

So I haven't used you much lately...

Yeah, OK, it's true. I've been banging Twitter and Facebook behind your back. Actually the two of them are tied together, so it's really a big shameless social-media-bondage-threesome thing.

Yeah and there's the Deadpan, too. Plus I've been going back to the Secretland forums. Yeah, I kind of figured it was gone too, but I still go to the Basement Lounge, where admittedly I mostly talk to myself.

But here I am, using you 'cuz I had nothing much better to do but wait for the printer to have an error...

Nope too cool out for any of that...

10:25 pm - Ink Reminder
Just putting up the "guy riding the fish" so all the gang at the Deadpan Bar can drop by and see. This is much easier than travelling cross-country and showing them all my right shoulder on an individual basis.

Go ahead and holler if you were there when this happened...

Hello all, our daughter Iris Fey was born February 10, 2009 at 5:45PM CST!

She weighed 7lb 9oz and was 20"long. The pediatrician told us today she appears in perfect health. Darcy is resting well, and we all should be home tomorrow.

2:28 pm - I'm in the Latest BBTL!
Look for me,or listen,more precisely. I'm playing an Initiative soldier in This Week's Episode Plus I've done a bit of editing here-and-there throughout the season.

And of course I wrote Episode 11, coming a bit later on...

2:11 pm - I Know Where to Buy Jaffa Cakes Locally...
I wonder if I should bring some to the Jonathan Coulton/Paul and Storm show on Feb 27?

Or perhaps Nut Goodies would be more appropriate, and fresher too...
