Oh I'm still here...

Life continues, mostly going rather well. Still, I seem to be pretty grumpy this evening. Though technically I completed all the work I needed to do today, and apparently to the satisfaction of those above, I really don't feel like I got much done, nor that I did it well. There's no real reason for me to feel this way, yet I do. Ah well, I can't have perfect bright shiny days every day, can I.

Let's see, what's up. Well, at work we're developing new pitches still as my work on The Game I Can't Talk About winds down. April is likely to be the last month of work on that. With all these pitches going on the hope is that we'll win and begin another new game shortly thereafter. I'm not worried, this company has proven itself quite well and we shouldn't have any trouble getting more work. The Pirates game is almost done and should be out a few weeks before the movie. I need to get a burn of it so I can play it, heh!

Outside of work, well, all's well with The Girlfriend - we are now past 6 months since we met, which is my longest relationship in more than 10 years. And I was in no sort of reasonable shape to be in a relationship for those entire 10 years, believe me. Now that I'm "myself" again - or probably more accurately, have figured out who "myself" is - I can do okay. I used to think I was horrible at relationships, with some good reasons... but I'm doing all right this time, and I'm happy about it. TGF seems to think I'm pretty good at being her boyfriend, so I'll stay the course! :)

I have to finish up my taxes, but I'm going to wait until the last week, since I've done the federal part and found that I will have to send in a check - not a big one, but there's no point in sending it until it's necessary. I should get the state part finished this week sometime. TurboTax is awesome! I highly recommend it. TGF used mine to do her taxes, took her about 1/2 hour and she's all done. Good stuff.

Saturday I went to the Wizard World comic con here in LA, where I hung out with my old friend Gabe from NJ, who I only see at comic cons these days. We got to spend some good time hanging out, and there were many other people there that I know of course, so it was a cool social occasion. We wound up closing the Figueroa Hotel bar, which is pretty much normal for a night out with comic nerds, heh... of course, I threw off my sleep schedule so today I feel like crap. Ah well, I don't do so many late nights anymore, so I don't recover as fast. Out of practice!

Sopranos is back on TV. Which is great. However, I didn't see much of Season 5, and neither did TGF. Today she bought the DVD set, used, at a great price, and now she is watching all of it. Apparently Dave Lee Roth is playing poker with Tony, how about that? I did see about the last 3 episodes of Season 5, so I know how it all wound up, but TGF doesn't - so I advised her that she ought to watch it before we start watching the new season. Fortunately, I have HBO On Demand, so we can watch it any time we want! Yay for new technology!

Um, what else. Bike is fine, Camaro is running great, I took it out this weekend for several trips. In fact, tomorrow is the day I designate as the Camaro's birthday, as it was built during the 3rd week of March 1967. Unfortunately I can't afford to buy it a present yet this year due to unforeseen expenses... yes, the traffic ticket ate the money I was going to use to buy the new starter and maybe do some work on the brakes. Sigh. Such is life.

I guess that's it. I have to work on the comic tonight since TGF and I have a date tomorrow night, and I need to do laundry and go to the grocery store for a few things. So I guess it will be a busy evening. Off I go...
