I swear I’m not dead.


No, I’m not dead. I just feel like it since it’s been a bit crazy lately (as evidenced by the fact that I’m writing this at 1:30am).

Nothing horribly earth shattering, just the standard insanity really. Though somewhere in the middle of everything, I’m working on redoing my site in XHTML and CSS instead of the abomination that it currently exists as. heh

Hopefully it should be up in the next week or so since I can’t exactly devote all of my time to it with everything else I’m doing.

To give you an idea of how little I’ve been sleeping lately, I apparently slept through the carbon monoxide alarm while I was at Karyl’s after the .NET dev group meeting. This, for me, is weird since I tend to wake up at *everything*. Thankfully it was a false alarm and I didn’t die. :P

On the upside, I got a great gift from Karyl for my birthday – a pair of well made Chinese ring daggers. Good steel, good temper, and great balance. They really feel alive in the hand. I have to say that they’re rather impressive and a joy to use.

Yes, I am, among other things, a blade geek. You should have figured this out by now. If nothing else, the sub heading of the blog should have been a clue. =]

Current mood: tired
Current music: Greg Kihn Band - The Breakup Song

I really am glad you like them. And that the size difference from the expectation was a good surprise, rather than an unpleasant one. (Pardon my grammar, it's late and I can't seem to sleep.)

But yes, thankfully it was a false alarm since apparently no amount of me prodding at you was going to wake you up. O.o

On the plus side I now have new alarms with a guarantee on them for several years, so hopefully these ones won't malfunction like crazy and false alarm instead of chirp like normal alarms when the battery's dying.

Because, you know, I just loved being woken up at 2am every couple of weeks by a battery-leeching dual alarm that apparently hates me and never wants me to sleep again.

I swear this is half of why I'm not sleeping right now... can't get myself to rest in fear that as soon as I fall asleep the new alarms will all start beeping on me.

Also ignoring the rather obvious sexual joke, dear :P

I can just see you trying to explain to your parents how you ditched me and left me to die at your place lol
