Happily Busy

Just a ramble:

Had a grand celebration meal with roommate last night: caesar salad and prime rib rubbed with seasons and lightly grilled, accompanied by margaritas made with Sauza Tres Generaciones Anejo tequila and Grand Marnier.

Since I start my new job tomorrow, I am happily busy today, though I hope to get out for a nice walk later. Lest you all think my walking will be drastically curtailed once I start working, my new office location is in the midst of parks with over 16 miles of trailway, rough and paved. If anything, I think I’ll be walking more, not less.

With such a quick start date, I only have one day to break some of my bad habits. For instance, tomorrow when I wake up, I must immediately put on clothes rather than around the home flops. And when I’m working on the computer, I must stop talking to it. I especially must not sing to it.

I also need to get my butt in gear and finish installing the software on the new server, disabling root access, enabling FTP and so on. For some odd reason, this has all become that much more enjoyable now.

We moved the Renaissance Web discussion group to a JournURL site, but aren’t quite sure who made the move over with us. Rick Thomas and I had a lovely discussion about the Semantic Web and Natural Language, including Poetry Finder, and he promised to return in a couple of days with talk about organic semantics.

Speaking of technology, I may be spinning the semantic web posts, including RDF for Poets and the Finder, to a separate weblog again. Hard to say, but I am all enthused to branch out and have fun again.

And speaking of fun: evil twin’s having fun in the comments in Farrago’s (Lynette’s) new experimental photo blog. She be teaching the twin how to make sisterfritters.
