I need to do a lot more detailed posts on pretty much everything I'm going to touch on today, but this will cover as a quick rundown for those of you who are really looking for one.

I moved to New Hampshire. That should be old news, I'm not sure if it is. I'm living with Jess and the girls. The Army flaked out - they never sent orders, so we're here for the duration. (Thank goodness, and my best wishes to anyone who did get their orders.)

Until tonight, we were sharing her computer desk. Tonight, we spent two hours assembling one for me. It's quite nice, and I like having more space. It's well positioned so we're close enough together to be able to feel near each other, but far enough away that we don't get too much in each other's space (thus far).

I'm working. I got a job in 4 days flat - interviewed on the Tuesday after Memorial Day, and started working the next Monday. I'm making good money and the job just totally kicks ass in so many ways. The people are great, the hours are great, and the environment is fun. I got lucky as hell, and I think it's definitely an omen for me right now.

I'm not planning on going back to school. I've got a good job, and school really wasn't working out for me anyway. It's fine for some people, but I just can't get through the four year program. I need to take some time off, and do what I love, and that's what I'm doing right now. I'm with three of the best girls in the world, and I'm enjoying the hell out of it.

The girls, Alicia and Julie, are absolutely adorable. I'll work on getting some decent galleries together to show off their cuteness later. They've become my most common test subjects for sem-web data lately, so their cute faces are shown off to all my friends and FOAFs.

I got asked to be on the Program Committee for a W3C conference, details here. I accepted, and am now trying to decide if I'm going to be going or not.

I'm betatesting the new LiveJournal Photo Hosting service. There's a couple things I really wish were done differently, but I can see myself using it a lot - 50 megs of dependable storage is more than I have anywhere else. (Dependable being key there.)

I'm still a camwhore, and I'm converting the girls, I think.

There is absolutely no way in hell I'm going to be up at a decent hour tomorrow.

And now, I have a beautiful, magical, amazing, wonderful jpallan to snuggle. So all you have a good night. Sweet dreams. Etc. etc. etc.

Oh, and if you're interested in anything here, comment and I'll detail that in another post. If I feel like it. ;)
