Tired Taco is Tired

I've been burning the candle at both ends lately. Passed out last night at 9:30pm. No more gas in the Tacomobile. Even so, I failed to set my alarm clock correctly and overslept this morning, so I was late to help my dad and brother move the last of my sister's stuff to her new apartment. Managed to get out there a mere 40 minutes late (sorry again, guys), and we moved her stuff.

Picked up Batman: Arkham Asylum this week. Hot damn. Great game.

Broke my sunglasses today. Whee. Don't have the spare cash to replace them right now. Dug through some old boxes and found my old sunglasses from high school. Twenty years out of style. I'm calling it "retro." But we all know it's really "Taco gots no style."

Dragged my journal to lunch with me today and write 275 words while the family nommed on cheeseburgers. Would've been more, but I instantly hated the first pass and did a full rewrite of the new bit. I know it's not a ton, but I'm calling it a win. Steady progress to a finished story. I've only ever finished one before, and I'm not thrilled with it. The full rewrite will have to wait until I finish this one.

Couple of guys from my World of Warcraft guild are in the area this week. We're headed off to meet them for dinner tonight. Can't wait.

Kiddo's tracking out of school in a couple weeks, which means the family's going out of town to visit with my father-in-law. I'm desperately hoarding vacation, besides which, it's cheaper when someone stays here so we don't have to board the dog, so I won't be going. To cheer myself up, I talked to Coyote about heading up his way for lunch that Saturday while they're out of town. Can't wait Part 2.

And now it's time to go nap more, because 11 hours last night didn't finish the job.

I wanted to have a meet with you and Coyote in Baltimore. But recent monetary concerns negate that possibility.

I am le sad.
