...and I haven't blogged for two weeks. Oy vey.
I spent three days in Colorado at a company meeting, that turned out to be surprisingly pleasant and made me know and appreciate my co-workers in different regions of the company better; the snowfall and the breahtaking view of Estes park from the windows of the YMCA cabin we stayed at helped too...:-)
Then we almost got the Scarborough Faire last weekened, but as the weather was so abysmally bad Saturday (rain, what rain, deluge...winds etc.), we decided to stay in and watch Kill Bill I
on DVD instead. We tried to find all the different directors and genres Tarantino mushged into this movie, I, personally, gave up after, I think, six... If one can stand the (otherwise lifelike and correct) blood and gore, it's a really good movie. I am looking forward to its sequel (or actually, integral part) in the theaters.
Tomorrow we leave for Kalamazoo, MI ('us' here is Boxing Alcibiades, The Lizard Queen and myself), for the annual Medieval Congress at WMU. Boxing A is giving a paper and I have a session to preside over (I originally had two, but most of my participants decided to leave me hanging two weeks before the congress. I was not a happy camper but hey, next year I will ask them to actually write the papers two months ahead of time and turn it in to me.).
We will be there until Sunday...according to the weather forecast, warm and thunderstorms expected. Joy. Shortsleeves and umbrellas. Packing tonight. Yayness.
Writing Update: progress is made. Characters are taking unexpected turns, but hey, that's just the way writing goes. At least when I tell excerpts to the Lizard Queen, she giggles--I guess that's a good sign.
