Loyal reader number twelve

That’s right, folks. We have a new Loyal Reader, pictured above! Well, she’s not exactly reading yet, but she’s absorbing the Morrowlife Wisdom in other ways. Besides, she probably reads this at least as often as most of my other Loyal Readers, so she’s on the list. As with last Thursday’s picture, this isn’t exactly a photograph, but it’s pretty close. Imaging by Loyal Reader Number Five’s high-priced medical team.

No post yesterday. I forgot. Loyal Reader Number Four and I went to Lardville yesterday and paid a whole lot of money and signed a whole bunch of papers and got in return — nothing. Well, we did get a receipt for the money and copies of all the papers, but we didn’t get the keys to the house. Because of California’s insane real estate system, we don’t pick up the keys until Thursday. That’s just two days away, though, so there’s light at the end of the tunnel! We’re getting ready to move out of the Fortress of Solitude, get the old house packed up, take our vacation, and move the truck and trailer to California. It’s going to be a busy several days.

My Loyal Readers are hereby reminded that they’re the Morrowlife Blog while I’m away. You might want to be thinking of Interesting and Important Things to write about. Take your responsibilities seriously. I’ll be monitoring the results!

Life is otherwise uneventful. Work, eat, blog, and sleep is pretty much the order of the day. The work hours keep getting longer and I keep falling further behind. What a great job! Airplanes with laser beams on their heads are at least as cool as launch vehicles and satellites. The challenge of this program is as immense as its fascination factor. Very cool.

I’ve dumped Programming for Embedded Systems and Linux Application Development from the Morrowlife Book Club. They both had that rare combination of uninterestingness and unusefulness that’s so hard to find nowadays. Not worthy of the MBC. The Romance of Engines, on the other hand, I can’t quit reading, no matter how hard I try.

Since I stayed at work until about 6:30 and then worked a couple of hours after I got here, it’s late and I want to go to bed. See you tomorrow. And keep up the good work, LRN12!
