Thoughts and ramblings on tech, media, culture, and food. Plus some other stuff, I'm sure.

Weekends Are Too Short

I didn't have an incredibly great week last week. It started out pretty good but got increasingly poor as the days went on. This weekend was a blessing of a break. Even though we did a lot of driving I was still able to get away from here and that was good.

Saturday we drove to Poplar Bluff in Southern Missouri for my friend Ryan's wedding. It was a 3 1/2 hour drive, but entirely worth it to see him get married. I also got to see my good friend Rod who lives on the East Coast now.

Our Magnificent Bastard TongueAnd we slept in. That was really nice. Today we went to the bookstore and I picked up Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue which I've been eyeing for a while. I'm excited to start reading it tonight before bed. I think it's going to be really interesting.

But I am not excited to have work tomorrow. I need a break. I need an extended vacation. I need some time to recover. I haven't had any time away from work since Christmas and I am definitely starting to feel the effects. I was going to take Jessica to Six Flags last week but didn't feel I was able to after some things that happened at work and with Kevin taking Friday off. So hopefully I will be able to work out a long weekend this week and we can take care of these cheap Six Flags tickets I have.

And today was Father's Day. Looks like I will finally be starting on a design for my dad's site which is good. He needs it and I have a good idea for what I'm going to do design-wise. Hopefully  I'll have some more freelance coming my way in the near future.
