Did some much-needed housekeeping on my website,
which mainly involved generating a new image, updating the content, and
tweaking the CSS. The main-level thecabal.org site is now consistent in
feel with my personal site
(I do not consider thecabal.org to be my personal site, as I use it as
the launchpad for all sorts of sites). On my personal site, I finally
retired my resume and updated some of the content, including taking
note of the fact I’m now a published author.
On that note, I got my author copies at the end of last week, so now I have photographs:
My first book signing party
In case you’re wondering, my parents got the second signed copy; a
co-worker got the first, merely by virtue of being present when I
picked up my copies from work.
Speaking of books, Treanna and Alaric continue their summertime reading. Treanna is currently enjoying The Princess Bride: S Morgenstern’s Classic Tale of True Love and High Adventure (yes, the book, not the movie), while Alaric is perusing The Dark Side Sourcebook (Star Wars Roleplaying Game), which arrived today courtesy of fellow PyraMOOvian Ryan Macklin‘s generosity. The Star Wars RPG sourcebooks he sent will be of great use in our ongoing family game.
I’ve finally decided to get off my ass and do something with my
three years of high-school Spanish, which have been neglected ever
since. A local Hispanic church is providing conversational Spanish
classes to the community on Wednesday evenings; I’ve decided to go. It
looks like we may take the whole family along; it certainly wouldn’t
hurt the kids to be bilingual.
