I’ve had my hands full lately.
Wendy The Redhead came up to Accordion City
last weekend, and among her myriad gifts is the ability to keep me away
from my beloved PowerBook and by extension, blogging. Her visit was
wonderful, but I’ll have to blog it later.
On Saturday morning, I got a phone call notifying me that Dad had
fallen ill with fever-like symptoms and was taken to the intensive care
unit at St. Joseph’s Hospital. Wendy and I paid him a visit shortly
afterwards, but he wasn’t awake, We visited again the day after, when
he was awake and looking better. Dad likes Wendy, and he told her
stories about the time we lived in Boston. I’m sure that seeing her
also gave him the inspiration to make more plans; Dad’s jumped several
steps ahead of me and is already thinking of where to hold the wedding
Before we start spreading any crazy rumours around the Internet, I have
not asked Wendy to marry me — that’s just Dad being Dad. I do,
however, need new “everyday” dishes and cookware; feel free to send ’em
anyway. Wendy would like a pair of green Converse shoes, men’s size 5.
Dad’s still in the hospital for observation. As I write this, we still have no idea when he’s getting out.
In the meantime, I also have my hands full cranking out the manuals for Blogware,
which is expected to see its 1.0 release very shortly. The Reseller
Manual measures about 80 pages when printed, while the Publisher (that
is, end-user) Manual looks like it’s going to break past 500.
As you may have guessed, entries might be a bit sparse this week. I’ll
try and squeeze in some time to get in an entry every day, but they’ll
be shorter than usual.
