The week.

Written By Heather - February 22, 2014

The week back from vacation – the reentry – is always a bit rough, and when it’s a short week because of a holiday, it seems even worse. Trying to cram five days of work into four and catching up on emails and whatnot…oy. It makes for a very long week. I’ve been fighting off the Banff Centre crud that everybody seemed to be sick with, and I’ve managed to side-step it, thankfully.

Last night, I took a quick trip downtown to get the battery in my iPod replaced. I’d been thinking about doing it just before I went to Banff, but quickly realized the hazard inherent with that and decided I’d leave the chore until I came back. Didn’t want to risk a musicless residency. I’ve had it since 2006, and I replaced the battery in 2010. It’s been coming up due for another replacement, and the service I used four years ago has a storefront operation in the Eau Claire market, so I went after work.

Friday night.

I’ve started reading The Way by Swann’s, too. Well, I started it on the train last night. It’s going to take a while to get through it, I think. I’m really thinking a lot about the idea of memory in the context of what I think must be a cyberpunk book that I’m planning. While I’m in that thinking stage, I’ve been chipping away at a space opera story. It’s not done, but I’m having a lot of fun writing it.

Friday night.

That was the week. Tonight is D&D night, which we’ve all been looking forward to. I suspect our DM is planning another dreadful battle or seven.

    Ah yes, Swann’s Way, one of the books I bluffed my way through and didn’t actually read in college. (I am not proud.) I still have my copy sitting in a box or on a shelf somewhere. Maybe it’s time to re-visit it.

    Re: that photo of downtown. WHERE IS THE SNOW? Does Calgary have a snow-banishing wizard/ess who just waves his/her wand and poof! The snow is gone.

      Yes, it’s called a chinook! :) We had a big one and it cleared up most of the snow on the streets. There is still snow on the ground, but not nearly as much as we’ve had.
