Dumbledore with a B

06 Sep

…”Dumbledore with a B” means precisely nothing, so far as I can tell, but the television ads in my dream last night certainly made a big deal of it. Apparently the ‘B’ makes all the difference. Somehow.

Anyway. Y’all remember when I used to have this blog and update it every day? Turns out actually having a life is a tad counter-productive on the blogging front. Once I get settled into my schedule I’ll probably pick up more, but the last week has been a lot of ahhhhhhhh paperwork training medical procedures tax code background checks ahhhhhhhhh. And also a lot of knitting. And a non-trivial amount of games (primarily Mexican Train and Portal 2).

But I’m occupied, and I finally feel like I might actually be going somewhere again. It’s kind of sad that all it takes to make me happy is a part-time job–or rather, that I’m desperately unhappy without some kind of external schedule. Sigh.
