New Year, same stuff going on.
Looking forward to warmer weather, but it was nice around Christmas time here. Everytime I see a snowstorm somewhere I'm glad I'm in Houston.

My old friend Eric is moving back in town, and another old friend is starting to get more sociable. We'll see how long that lasts. Eric asked if I had been playing in any RPG's lately and I haven't in a while. I'd like to, but there's just not many older groups playing serious games. With comics stores closing I guess if I was really serious I could look online for a group, but seems like alot of effort for something that won't work out 95% of the time.

I had a good time at the Distant Worlds Final Fantasy symphony concert last night at Jones Hall. Forgot my phone at home so I don't have any cosplay pics though. I had good seats near mid orchestra, so good that the composer Nobuo Uematsu came and sat about 6 steps away at the end of the row below me when he came and sat in the audience.

I didn't dress up because it's usually hot at these things in summer, and sure enough I was sweating before the show started, but it cooled down slightly when they started. Still way too hot for a theater.

Good showing. The show sold out in Houston. By my rough estimate, a $350k box office, not counting merchandising and meet and greet tickets.

Good mix too. I'd say the crowd was almost 50% women, and a mix of early forties down, although more twenty year olds than any other group.

Also Recently....

Passed my PMP practice exam with a 65%. You need 61% to pass. Good...but clearly, I have room for improvement.
Heh. The ticket to return from Vegas is twice as expensive as the one out there.
Volunteered at Hobby last weekend for Wicked. Met Sul Ross V, fellow volunteer. Decendent of Texas A&M's ole Sully. 11:56 AM Jul 21st
Booking reward travel on partner airlines is a pain in the ass. Wish I could xfer Krisflyer/Singapore miles to Continental.
Saw Haynesville last night, a documentary about how the Haynesville shale changed the lives of DeSoto parish Louisianans. 9:45 AM Jul 16th

  • 08:33 Grumpy this morning from my morning weigh-in. Despite strict diet and exercise regime over the weekend did not lose any weight. #
  • 08:33 Saw 'Where the Wild Things Are' Saturday at Sugarland Movies in the Town Square. #
  • 08:35 That's not a good choice to show at night with lots of light. It's dark/night in 80% of the show and you couldn't see anything. #

  • 14:03 Houston's very green. Almost 80% of my view is treetops. Granted there is probably houses and business beneath most of the trees but you d #
  • 14:05 It's been a noisy day here, there's apparently a gas leak a block down the street so we have lots of siren noises. #
  • 14:06 I think every fire truck within 15 miles is here. #
  • 15:53 If you lose your work often enough, you begin to save versions of your work as you progress so you can always revert back if needed. #
