Guess I posted that last one as admin instead of as me.
Here’s a real account.
Found the wordpress import-rss function and used it to pull in all the old posts from my journal. There were a few glitches, where it said posts were from 1969 or the like, but pretty easy to fix up. I guess I might look to swapping this in place of my journal link soon. I will need to figure out how to change the nirik-rss feed on livejournal that pulls from there however.
One nice thing about wordpress is that there is a lot of people using it, so there are some clever plugins out there. I installed a few of them here without too much trouble:
Thats it for now, but there is a gigantic pile of plugins out there. Will have to look around some more.
Haven’t updated in a while for some reason. 🙂
This weekend was pretty delightfull. Saturday was the cocktail party I had here. There was a nice turnout and good conversation and food. The party broke up around 1:30am or so. Sunday was a day of slacking and relaxing and eating far too much leftovers from the party. Monday we had a company dinner gathering up in loveland which was nice.
Tonight might be wine making (not 100% sure we are scheduled), thursday will be Hackingsociety up in boulder, perhaps friday I can get up to the Walnut and sample this years Barleywine. It’s good stuff.
Saturday I will probibly be heading down to Los Alamos to spend xmas with some friends, then monday off to Tucson to finish up (hopefully) the last bits on my dad’s estate. Fun times.
FYI, anyone in the area who is interested, I will be showing movies and playing video games saturday night at my house on the projector.
It’s a pretty nice setup. Anyone interested in dropping by for a low key evening, drop me an email.
Also, everyone should go see the Asylum Street spankers up at Trilogy in boulder tonight. I should be there.
I still haven’t uploaded pictures from last weekend at the ren faire. 🙁
My temp foster Fancy went back up north on wed. She was super easy to deal with, she mostly just slept. On the wed morning I think she just started to open up a bit and realize it was ok to play and have fun here. Just in time to head out. Oh well. Perhaps I will foster her again soon…
Tomorrow I head down to Santa Fe for T and J’s wedding gathering. Should be an excellent time. I don’t really have to be there any particular time tomorrow, so I am going to try and take it easy and stop and take the pups for walks and such on the way. Saturday is the gathering itself and then sunday is heading back home. Should be a nice whirlwind trip.
Well, I think I am mostly packed up to head out to Santa Fe and ready to hit the road.
It used to be that I would be very anal and make up a detailed list of everything I should take on a trip and check them off, and so forth, but now I find myself more and more just thinking before I leave what I need and tossing it into the back of the vehicle. Hopefully it will all work out. Kurt and Merlin seem both very eager to hit the road. They love riding in the car.
I might do some posting from there depending on if I can find wireless, we will see.
Have a good weekend everyone…
Well, it was a lovely weekend. Friday’s trip south was pretty uneventfull. We got checked in at 10k waves just fine. They were all very very nice folks there, it was a lovely spot. There were celing fans to terrify kurt, but he handled them better than he has in the past. After getting all checked in and unloaded we decided to make someone deliver food to us and had a nice late mexican food dinner.
Saturday we loafed around and killed time until the wedding. The wedding was at hyde park lodge and was lovely. It did start to rain, but there was enough cover than everyone could stay out of it. Lots and lots of yummy things to drink at the fully stocked bar. Very yummy dinner as well. It was really nice to see some folks that I haven’t seen in many years and catch up. I helped break down the bar and we wandered back to the room to hang out the rest of the night.
Sunday was packing up and a brunch in santa fe before heading back north. The place we went let us sit outside and have the dogs there with us, which was nice. The trip back was long, but not nearly as bad as if it had been all the way from Cruces.
Will try and catch up on my picture post backlog in the next few days…
This week is gonna be busy too:
Made it back home a bit ago… it’s sure nice to be back with my pups and kitty. 🙂
I took about a zillion pictures at the Grand Canyon… will post those and write up some impressions of the trip tomorrow.
It was a very nice trip, but it’s also good to be home.
