Ok, my life lately...
School. Lots of school. This semester started on January 12th, and I have class 3 days a week. My FINAL THREE CLASSES!!! are Career Planning & Professional Practices, Portfolio Prep/Exhibit, and Graphic Design Problems 2. So this semester will consist of mostly getting my portfolio ready for the portfolio show that we will be putting on in May, and doing my part in putting the portfolio show together. Only 3 months. Eeep! And we are the largest graduating class the program has ever had.
What else have I been up to? Well, in the middle of January, Minneapolis was blessed with a visit from our Future Dark Overlord, Scott Sigler. He's a podcaster who got a book deal after releasing his novels as free podcasts, and hit the NYT bestseller list with his newest release, Contagious. He is not, however, the Scott Sigler who writes about adult incontinence. At least he claims he's not...
johnboze picked up hellbob and I for the book reading, and afterwards we walked a couple blocks to Old Chicago for beer with Scott. A good time was had by all. :)
On Friday the 23rd we had our holiday party for work. Free dinner at Lord Fletcher's. Yummy!!! And, as always, my co-workers were fun to hang out with!
Saturday of that weekend was the annual holiday party/white elephant gift exchange with the geek friends. Too much yummy food!
hellbob and I took off from there to go to see some bands at O'Gara's Garage. ninja_tech & floppycorpse met us there. (Yeah, you all were wondering about the subject of the post, weren't you? Sorry. I just couldn't resist!). We had all missed the 1st & 2nd bands, and got there just as Mass Drastic *MySpace Link. Music will play* was setting up. They played a great set, and I still want them to put out a CD! After their set we listened to a little bit of the next band, but we were all just too tired to feel up to staying. What can I say? We're old! We did chat a little bit with MD's drummer Jim and his family. Hi Jim! Hi Jim's mom!
This last Wednesday I got to MonkeySit technomonkey_m & gigglemonkey_b for a while because genevra had a meeting at her house. I took them to McDonalds so they could run wild in the playland after eating. I do still have the CUTEST niece & nephew in the ENTIRE WORLD! Even if gigglemonkey_b did tell me she doesn't like my scarf. :)
This weekend was mostly lazy. We went to lunch at Jun-Bo for Dim Sum with LJless Jeanine & LJless Curt today, and then to see The Wrestler. Good movie. I really need to get out there to see some more of the Oscar nominated stuff though.
So that's what I've been up to lately. Also, I ♥ my iPhone! And since I've got the iPhone I'm on Twitter a lot more now. So if you are on Twitter too go ahead and follow me. If you can't figure out my username there you really haven't been paying attention, have you?
