Things that are happening to me:
followthebird and I are headed to Boston in October - I understand this is where you colonists keep the history. I look forward to having one of your airport security apes stick their fingers up my ass to the elbow because of something I said five years ago. Also, I rejoined the Gym in UCD since they're doing a year for 170 earth euros - thats about $220. Consequently and appropriately I can barely feel my arms past the elbow. I'll feel them tomorrow though, oh yes.
It seems to be that time of year again for me generally - the time when I start doing things, or at least finishing the things I started in the last year or so. I have a pain in my bollocks trying to get my 3D work to behave in a manner I deem appropriate but I'm slowly approaching "not a complete newbie" status. I'd also like to get a couple of pages of that comic done in the next few weeks - hobbies that don't rely entirely on a computer could be handy for the flight at least.
