Today was ARLD Day here in Minnesota. I would write more than “it was awesome,” but I’m too tired and have too much other stuff to do. But I promise, I’ll write more than “it was awesome” as soon as possible. All I’ll say now is: developer of recommender systems + keynote = awesome. Think on that.
This has been my first full weekend at home in over a month, so my list of household tasks was daunting, to say the least. But partially thanks to fine weather, partially thanks to a cat who really didn’t want me to sleep in (and even decided to rouse me two hours earlier than I would have thought necessary), and partially thanks to the pleasure I get from crossing things off of lists, I made it through 23 of the 25 items on my to-do list. I also started to gather some of my flickr photo sets into a collection I’ve called “Flickr Cook Book” … because I’m creative with names.
So what were the two things I didn’t get done? Oh, just the two most important and time-consuming items on my lists, both having to do with a writing project I’m doing. I sure hope my co-author hasn’t pasted a picture of me next to the entry for “slacker” in her dictionary. It’ll get done. I promise. I’ve never not gotten something like this done before, and I don’t intend to start now.
