What an odd week this was.
First off, there was New Year's. On New Year's Eve, I made a token visit to First Night Austin (lived here forever, never been downtown for New Year's) but generally took things pretty lazily. I had New Year's Day off, and spent most of it playing a board game.
After that, I went dancing a couple of times. To my surprise, I had a great time at the Fed (ran into all sorts of people I don't see often enough), but a lackluster time at the Friday-night blues dance (where I mostly wallflowered). Usually it goes the other way.
And, well, that was the last social stuff I did all week. Since then, I've just been running errands. I finished putting together my new AV setup. I cleaned the apartment and the car. I did the cooking for the next couple of weeks. I even updated my records for renter's insurance for the first time in five years.
Pro: there's almost nothing left on the neverending to-do list.
Con: I'm a bit stir-crazy now.
I suppose I'll get out a bit in the next few days -- more dancing, and I'll have another go at Micetro -- but apart from that, it looks like a similarly slow week. Stay in. Sit around. Write stuff.
Then it'll be off to Fort Lauderdale. (Whee!)
