Transition Times

It's that time of year when the small floating stuff in the air might be either snowflakes or blossoms. Portland last had snow in the last couple of weeks: this week we're getting blooming trees. It's one of those times of the year that change is obvious.

I'm having changes, too (WAY TO GO WITH THE THEMATIC WRITING, CHRIS): my new job training starts next week. Tonight is the last episode of Battlestar Galactica (9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. this time), once more witnessed in the Bagdad Theater by me and hundreds of my fellow geeks. (Doors open at 8, not 9. Early early early. Got that?) After that, I can change to checking out Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Dollhouse in my non-DVR'd apartment, so I can finally see where Chronicles has gone story-wise since it moved to Friday and see how Dollhouse has developed. (I can't watch TV shows online, to answer that question. My technology ain't up to it. Maybe that's something else I should change...)

One thing that hasn't changed is that I hate abandoning books, so I'm slowly (slowly, slowly) working through Katherine Dunn's Geek Love. Not my easiest read, but I want to see where it goes. (See, octoberland? I'm having trouble with it too!) I'm also reading the collection Wastelands: Stories of the Apocalypse. I've been an especially slow reader lately. That's a change I don't like and that I want to change back!

More changes will change as the time changes. (WAY TO OVERDO THE THEMATIC WRITING, CHRIS.)
