Whew.

We now return you to regular blogging.

Well, when I say "regular", of course I mean "slightly more frequent than recently". But you get the idea.

Out of the way since the last post: one trip to The Nation's Capital™, which was fine except that a) my sinuses were stuffed up, as they usually are when I fly, and b) I never sleep well in hotels. But I met some interesting people.

Here's possibly the Most Useless Picture Ever™ , taken using the built-in camera on this Sony Vaio laptop, out of the hotel window which overlooks one of the most boring parts of Ottawa:

Also out of the way: one 27-page report for A Certain Federal Ministry™, final draft completed and off to my Partner In Crime™ on this one for edits. Slightly late, but no worries. I should have done it in November, though. Or at least most of it. The hiring that I alluded to in the last post, however, is not yet completed... and if you're wondering, Mr. XXX job post is not getting an interview.

So, report out of the way means more sleep and less staying up late fiddling around on the laptop, which I unfortunately have to do sitting up straight at the kitchen table rather than in bed or on a comfy couch, both of which play havoc with my lower back. And a recent adjustment to the bedtime routine of the Junior Ricardipi has resulted in an earlier bedtime for the Senior Ricardipi, which also helps the sleep situation. All is much better.

Now, if I could just do something about the quality of my blog posts...

Senior Ricardipod, shirley?

It's plural - both Senior Ricardipi.

Or maybe "Ricardipods" - I hadn't considered that form. I heard somewhere that the correct plural of "octopus" is "octopods" but I confess I haven't researched that in detail...

Awww. And, even with the scant info forwarded, I'd begun building up a picture of him in my mind. ;)

f:lux - if he applies in person, you're more than welcome to come and take photos...

BK said...

That'd be ricardipoda

I confess I'm not sure, but I'm willing to defer to your superior knowledge.

A rant's good for you! I'm sure it can be medically proven in some way or the other...if not, I shall make it my life's ambition to prove it.
