I've slowed down.
The Big Work Project is done. Shipped. Off my plate. Everyone is impressed with the work I did.
And now my plate at work is empty. And I am enjoying having a bit of a break. Things look like they may be slow into the new year, so finding something I can do with my time at my desk, that looks convincingly like "work", is the order of the day. I did a LOT of work this year. I've earned a bit of a break.
My new motorcycle is amazing. In 3 days I rode close to 400 miles. I also showed it to a pinstriper who has some really cool ideas for painting it. Give it that 50's hot-rod kind of feel...
I found a new game for my iPhone called "FROST". It's lovely. Quiet. Atmospheric. No timer. No points. Just gorgeous graphics of particles interacting with each other. Each level is a discovery process, figuring out what the puzzle is, and how to make the particles interact properly, to clear the level. It's mellow and I love it.
Got HUGE travel plans for this year... the wife and I are going to follow our Seattle rugby team to a bunch of away games, so we can do some weekend getaways to cities that might not be on our To Do List otherwise... NYC, NOLA, Austin, Denver, Toronto, LA... I'm really looking forward to it! Our travel has mostly been driving somewhere interesting (BC, Burning Man, etc.) together, but going to England and Scotland for our honeymoon made us realize we want to do more longer-distance travel, too.
And I honestly haven't traveled much in the USA. Been to way more countries than States!
But now it is winter time. I'm wrapping myself up in a virtual warm blanket, and awaiting the end of the year...
