typical Saturday

Loren was supposed to come last night but opted to stay at his mom's to take advantage of some company that was coming (a friend of his little brother's that he likes). he came today instead. i slept like a log after spending the majority of the night last night fixing this blog....a worthy endeavor, but one which took a lot out of me.

when he showed up this afternoon (at about 2:40, at which point i'd been awake about 45 minutes) he was sick; he went upstairs to take his temperature and sure enough, 101.7 degrees. he put a couple ibuprofen down and i had him hop in the shower- told him it'd make him a new man...which it did. once in a while the old man's advice works out ok.

we did a little runnin' around town, and i got him a Seahawks sweatshirt, a little oversized so's it'll fit him for a long time, and some groceries and stuff. when we got back we settled in for a typical evening (hence the title adorning this post) of grocery-store frozen pizzas and Star Trek (Voyager, 2nd season, 3rd disc, this time around). we try to put a few more episodes of one or another Star Trek series behind us every weekend. considering the number of years each series ran, and the fact that there are three we're working our way through on DVD (the "middle" three series chronologically- we plan on delving into the original series after finishing these three, and we're not including ST: Enterprise, since he watched most of its three year run with me while it was broadcast) and the rate at which we're getting through the episodes, i figure we'll finish watching those three series in about 3-4 more years....

we had a little Rocky Road ice cream (Loren's favorite) and before ya knew it he was crashin'- and more than ready for it. bein' sick'll really take it out of a guy. i should know, i was fighting something that wouldn't quite go full-blown on me for a couple weeks, then was pretty miserable for a few days, before i started feelin' quite a bit better late Friday. i love that whole felt-like-death-but-it's-gone-so-now-i-feel-awesome thing. doesn't last a long time, but it's nice when it happens.

spent the majority of the last couple hours fixing most of the remaining problems in the main page of my site- at any rate, all the ones i've found so far. it's looking pretty good, and nice to be back to Square One at least. i can see some overhauls are necessary; i'm going to have to create a couple new pages to house some of the information that's starting to overwhelm the left column of the layout- but for the moment i'm happy to have pounded it back into shape and reflect relevant information.

the first step toward that is actually complete already; it's the newest addition to this site, a positively thrilling document listing the books i've completed since i began keeping a list of same (sometime last year...i forget when exactly...) anyone interested can find the link on the left; for the truly impulsive (and/or lazy) i'll put one right here too. but that's actually a redundant link....i believe i put the same link in the last post....or the one before it....something like that.

and that, my friends, officially marks the point at which i realize both that i'm repeating myself, and this post is complete.

so be it.
