Well, I've attended my first and last bridal show. Actually it wasn't as bad as I'd imagined. Mainly alot of salespeople very happy to have you sign up for "contests" so they can get your email and phone numbers so they can further solicit you.
I managed to muddle through, though I admit at the end I was a little tired, and I could feel my shoulders starting to seperate under the load of brochures I was required to politely accept and carry. If I could make it though statistics 3202, I could make it through this.
In the past week I've also, finally, managed to dust of my CD burner and get a few backups of my stuff here at home. I've lost a few hard drives in the past, and it was starting to get to me that old Betsy here can't have too many spins left in her drive. Mainly I've backed up my audio books, my website, and a few treasured documents. You'll be glad to know that if my website dies, it'll only be 3-4 weeks before it's back online. :)
I've finished reading the Asimov Robot series, finishing with the Robots of Dawn. Now I'm reading a book by Bill Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything. Thus far, Mr. Bryson appears to be living up to expectations as a fantastic writer with the ability to make complex things seem simple.
