Well. That OTW Open Board meeting happened. And then things continued to happen.
Now that things have settled down just the tiniest bit (most likely because most of the US based people are in a food coma), I am with the people who think this clean slate is actually the best news for the org. I trust LO and Matty and I know they are already working hard to get everything lined up so they can start work as soon as they are inducted as Board.

In less exciting news, I've been watching Sense8 and then Jessica Jones to finish my knitting and start on my photo sorting. Different as they are, I like them both. (We're going to ignore Walter firing a rocket launcher less than 500m from the Federal Police Office building in Berlin. Or the fact that Sufentanil is a controlled drug basically everywhere and the level of lockup and protocol to sign that stuff out this means.)
I've also been sucked into Hamilton because of course I would.

Thanks to us being fully staffed vet-wise at work for the first time in five years or so, I was barely working at all in November. I am not used to this. It took me about two weeks to remember that I choose a job with 60+ hour weeks for a reason. I need the stress and pressure. Without it I actually get less done.
Oh well, from December on we're back to a more normal rota pattern, then I can be grumpy about too little sleep and/or time again.

We've reached the season where all my running trails are mud and ice again. This is not conductive to running at any reasonable pace, but then the weather itself is rarely inviting to go out on any business anyway. I try to keep up the running nonetheless. Next half marathon in March is the plan for now. We shall see.

And to finish this entry a picture, as proof that I am slowly sorting through my photos...

  • Saw Avengers on Friday. Loved it a LOT.

  • Am now looking for fic. Nothing new there.

  • Don't feel as OTP drawn as usual. Weird. Oh well, more to read!

  • (Seem to have read all completed XMFC OTP fic. Was close to despairing and starting on WiPs.)

  • Just gave up and ordered new computer. I love my ThinkPad-Screen-random_bits setup but sorting photos or even just epubs slows it to a crawl.

  • Restrained myself and only got 8GB RAM, even if the 16GB option still makes me salivate.

  • Have so many fun things to plan and no idea how to squeeze them in the year.

    Outdoors Climbing! Cool exhibitions! Diving! New York! People visiting! Barcelona! More Diving? More Climbing? Oh, right, work has to be in there occasionally too.

  • Am thinking about 100 things challenge.But afraid topic choice would default to work related subject.

  • Three more nights and I'll be done with the current crazy block of work shifts. Will be slightly manic until then.

  • Nobody but me will be able to tell the difference of course.

  • New computer can't get here soon enough. This one just froze up for half a minute because I dared ask it to open Chrome while writing this entry in Opera..

  • Will learn how to use the English language properly again at some point, I'm sure.

Of course I'll not notice the bit of Cornflake that dropped into my coffee until I'm trying to drink the last bit of it in one go. I might stop harking like a cat coughing up a hairball soon, but I give no guarantees.

And now that the mental plug of that last entry is gone (I do that all the time, mentally working on an entry and then not being able to post about anything else because my brain is still working on that other thing.) I can go back to more regular brainless blathering.

Recently, while watching all of The West Wing, my DVD player (it's quite old and temperamental -that's why the media centre/streaming pc is an actual plan instead of a geeky fancy) absolutely refused to play one episode, so I got out the CDs with the .avis [personal profile] kriski gave me years ago.
I know I watched nearly the whole series of those then, but *how* is a mystery to me. The difference in quality is amazing.
Now I feel the need to go and search for some Star Trek TOS that should still be around here somewhere on video tapes. Just to appreciate the improvement from then.

I also had a look at the WW fanfic. Looking back at a fandom years after it closed is always interesting to me and seeing some of the stories with the knowledge of later seasons is quite funny. Doesn't make the good ones bad though.
*goes back to haunting archives*

Saw the newest Indiana Jones Movie. Scared the flatmates with the ammount of information I can recall about the Trilogy. Think translation ('Matt? Wie Schach-Matt?' 'Hurah Eisenhower'? Argh) in addition to Georg Lucas dialoge reduced my enjoyment of the movie a quite bit. Loved it anyway.

Now back to waiting for colleague S to call with a plan for the evening. If he doesn't I might have to make something up myself because staying in on Eurovision night can only end in pain.
