08:28 am: tiny updates
Got through the holidays OK, though I was sick (hack, sniffle). Time with family was nice. Downtime was good. I'd planned more active downtime, but settled for movies and books at home. Book update coming soon. Maybe capsule movie reviews too? (Lemme know if you're interested; we cancelled cable and signed up for streaming Netflix, plus there are the DVDs we got for Christmas... and I've actually gone to a couple of movies recently too. Discovered $5 movie nights. w00t!)

Teddy did well with the birthday and holidays. Has just one Lego set left to make. Our house is over-run with small plastic pieces, but at least most of them are off the floor. So they still collect dust (though, as active playthings, less than I'd've thought) but I don't step on them. Win!

Got hooked on Firefly, watched the whole season plus the movie in 3 days. Now I've got me a Nathan Fillion hankering. Also got hooked on Sherlock (BBC), watched the two series in 2 days and have a hankering for Benedict Cumberbatch. And to a lesser extent, Martin Freeman.

Work is in flux at the moment. We have all kinds of plans, some of which are pending corporate approval, some of which are delayed because an internal transfer's delayed a few weeks. I learned and am making an important adjustment: our company is not the same company it was when I joined. No surprise there, really, as nothing stays the same, right? But the company culture has always had a specific... tone, I guess, which has been subsumed by the parent company. So I (and others) are adapting by going smaller, preserving the valuable parts of that culture within our department (and of course trying to slough off the negative parts). It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

I'm going to look at my archives and blogroll for a year-end wrap-up template. I find taking stock regularly to be useful.

Current Mood: sicksick

Firefly is good stuff. You'll probably like Castle, too. It references Firefly on a regular basis. You can find the references on youtube if you need a sampling.

but not yet on my Netflix queue. I'll fix that, forthwith.

Thanks!
