Betty - Congratulations on your house and I hope your move is easy. Spending time with your handspinners guild relaxing will be a nice break in the middle of dealing with a move and having to sort through your mom's things.

VydorScope - What a lot of fun being in the video this year. What part do you have?

CRussel - Good luck on finding a job; I know something will come up soon.

Coffee in my cup and biscotti on my plate, while I wait for my mom to call. We are going to clean out the sun room and sort items to donate, keep, and sale.

Sorry I've been mostly MIA lately, but this business of not having a job/gig is getting me down. Seems like the market for tech writers is not doing so well.
Good luck finding something. Can yo market your skills in a different market as well or are they very specific?

Working on pot two of Yellow Tea at work. Making up hours from Wednesday.

Finished my coffee, and getting ready to go on a weekend retreat with my handspinners guild. I closed on my house yesterday and my stress level has dropped considerably, although as a new homeowner it probably should have jumped way up! Oh, well, all in good time. The past few months have been such a time of transition for me, though, that I'm just happy to have a long term plan. I'm not moving until the 30th (having the floors refinished and the walls painted), and meanwhile we will have the sad task of finally dealing with all of mom's things. Strangely enough, although it has been 4 months, my grief in the past couple of weeks has been worse than before. I guess the reality of the fact that we're all moving on without her...

But hey! New house!
congrats, Betty, on your new house. It must be exciting to build a new life.
Take care.

in my cup: cold coffee

(I've completed my typhoid-vaccine and am feeling good again, after a week of being miserable. I cannot understand why I had such a strong reaction, well..another 11 days before my trip. I discovered Rooibostea in a pyramid-sachet and it tastes alright, so I'll take that along, together with Nescafé and small waterkettle).

You can make your own tea bags and premade coffee bags with teas and coffee that you like.

I can't wait to see the travel log this time!

Yes, I made my own last time, but I went to the teashop today and I found some pyramid bags Honey Rooibos from www.ceylonteabush.com and decided to try this.
I also bought tealiquor which tasted nice and soft, but somewhat weird of black tea.

I cannot wait to go and travel and am looking forward visiting all, but especially Samarkand, Kashgar, the Labrang monastery and Bejing.

in my cup: cold coffee.

I have always been a disciple (Andrew, Thomas, etc, but never Judas! ), but the last couple of years I have moved off stage and run the HD video camera's. I like that role much better.

I do hope you'll find something soon. It is such a difficult time for lots of people these days.

in my cup: nothing, but waiting for my white wine/water. It is somewhat too early, being 21.18 hour.........

The real problem is that I am not a good marketer. So there isn't an easy way to move into a different "genre". The actual skills translate very easily, but I have no contacts outside of the computer industry, and limited ones outside of the narrow Microsoft infrastructure.

Drinking Diet Coke.

Definitely a day that calls for Talisker. But right now I'm hoarding mine, since I know I can't replace it. I've got 8-10 partial bottles of various single malts, but only 4 that I really care about -- Talisker, Oban, Ardbeg, and my beloved Lagavulin. They are definitely being hoarded and savoured.

So, tonight, I took a chance, hoping the combination of NSAID plus gabapentin that they have me on for this pinched nerve, would be enough to hold off the red wine headache. It seems to have worked, I was able to have a nice glass of Seghesio Old Vine Zinfandel to go with the lamb shanks.
