Sleep will likely be fitful tonight, because of pre-flight jitters plus drunk screaming people, and I need to keep the window open because there’s no air conditioner in this room. There is wireless though, and that’s the important thing. Gotta keep the priorities straight.
I’m sad that both baseball and WordCamp are ending at the same time. WordPress will continue unabated, but I’ll have to wait for baseball until next spring. The weather’s been nice here. It didn’t get hot until today. For the rest of the time, it’s been pleasantly cool. I’ve walked a ton, and I’ll be surprised if I’ve lost no weight. I plan on sleeping for as long as possible as soon as I get home tomorrow evening.
I was featured in Joseph O’Connor’s lightning talk on remote user testing, so I need to recalculate how many minutes I have left in my fifteen minutes of fame. After WordCamp was over for today, I and the accessibility team (well, part of us anyway) went out for dinner, and then I stopped by the afterparty being thrown at Automattic headquarters and drank more beer. I also met more people, including dre Armeda from the dradcast, which is a podcast you should be listening to if you’re in to WordPress, beer, or both.
tomorrow, there’s a blogging track and a contributor track, and I’ll be attending a little of both like I did today with the developer track and the designer track. I’m looking forward to it.
You can’t see my jeans in this picture, but I’m wearing a pair of jeans that for the last year and a half have been either too tight to fit or would fit, but we’re still a little too tight around the hips. They now fit perfectly. Score for me! I am leaving for San Francisco in a couple of hours, and if the reports are true, I will be doing a lot of walking over the next week. When I come back, I will resume the workout schedule I have let go for the last month. I’m looking forward to it. I have 31 pounds to go until I reach my goal weight. If I keep this up, it will be no time at all until I reach that goal, thus making my end of year goal of being at my target weight. that will be an awesome way to end 2014. I can’t wait.
Right now I’m sitting outside enjoying a beer. I’m pretty much going to count this day as a mental health day. I’ll get back to productivity later.
I don’t know when later will be, and right now I’m really not worried about it. There’s a lot to be said for taking some down time, and I don’t do nearly enough of that. So here’s to me. Everyone play along and raise your glasses.
