Yeah, I know, it’s been pretty quiet around here recently. I will refrain from saying much because I know some of my bosses check out this blog every now and again (you know who you are!) but basically work has been HARD recently and I have poured all of myself, including my sleep and apparently now my immune system, into it. Fortunately, we did a bang-up job and are pretty proud of ourselves for getting things over the metaphorical line. Time to tidy up the files, make sure we’ve got all the right paperwork, and move on to the next project.
Some of you will have noticed that not only did I go quiet on the blog but I banned myself from Twitter and Google Reader as well, so basically as far as I was concerned, all the fun bits of the interwebs went missing for the last fortnight.
You must tell me of all the fun things that happened! The literary kerfuffles, the book you read that you can’t believe you never read before, the recipe I’ve got to try.
Things that happened to me:
– Mini-Me sat me down and forced me to start watching Gilmore Girls. I’ve now watched the whole first season and am caught up in all the teenage/small-town drama. Actually small-town life looks pretty great. Season 2, here I come.
– I abandoned a ton of books within five pages. First there was the crime novel where something so gross happens to the protagonist in the first chapter (no great surprise, it was in the blurb) that I felt physically sick. I had to get off the train and sit on the platform and get on the next one. (it might have been the second night of five hours sleep that made me ill, not sure), then a novel set in southern Africa where the dialogue was just toooooooo stilted to be real. Urgh. I need a book I can read!!!
– The Physicist stayed home for two consecutive weeks, wahey! Apparently it’s hard to leave your wife behind when she comes home totally exhausted from work every day and cries with tiredness and grumpiness. I’m hoping the home time was good for his thesis. Woe thesis misery, or rather “thisery”, begone from our house!
– I caught manflu a serious cold from the audit director. I blame the lack of sleep and dreams filled with discoveries that we got the acquisition accounting of something that was bought 4 years ago when I was still at uni and therefore definitely not auditing this company, wrong.
