Wow, it's been over half a year since I last posted... There's not really been a lot going on with me, though. No LJ-worthy drama or hijinks; my life's pretty boring, really.

My job's going well; I've got just over a year under my belt. There's been some travel involved: They sent me and my immediate boss to Longmont, CO for a training class. That was the first time I've flown since my sister's been alive. I can't say I care much for the puddle jumpers they've got going between Atlanta and Huntsville, but what can you do? In about a week my boss and I will be flying out to LA for SIGGRAPH. That'll be a real experience, I'm sure.

On the not-work related side... I've been a Destination Imagination appraiser for a few years now, and this year I got invited to appraise at Global Finals. That was fun! Despite the fact I was on my feet for too freaking long every day for three days. We (my IC room) got to see some 6 or 7 international teams at the Middle School level. It was interesting to note that two or three of the foreign teams had a very good grasp of the English language. Since every international team had the challenge read first in English, then read by the translator, my room felt this was very unfair to both the non fluent teams and the native English speakers. We doubt the methods will be changed, though...

Also, I fount an MMORPG that is kinda eating my life... It's a Naruto parody, for the most part. I've only been playing for about a week, but I like it. It's mostly text-based, so it doesn't take long to load the pages; the ninja missions tend to be amusing; you can do pretty much anything you need/want to do for the day in under 30 minutes; and it's free! If you want to check it out, click the link!

Be the Ultimate Ninja! Play Billy Vs. SNAKEMAN today!

Eventually I'll make my own pic... Ah, well. It would be an excellent way to waste time on my lunch breaks if game servers weren't blocked at work. Le sigh.

Well... there's not much going on. We have a home network now, my brother's home from school for the next two weeks or so, my sister flunked the 10th grade...

Anyway, I'm mostly just letting everyone know I still live. I hope you guys are all keeping well. I'll try to update every once in a while.

Wow! You're a DI appraiser!? I didn't think you liked all that stuff much after our experiences of it during school. Did you get into it because of your siblings? Funny that you mention it because I was just looking up DI on Wikipedia the other day.

What is your job, anyway? And what are your future plans? Jenn and I get annoyed because it's really hard to get in touch with you.
