Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

a long awaited short update @ 10:02 pm

Current Mood: okay okay

I've been doing laundry tonight, a very exciting thing to do, especially when people decide to park wherever their car lands, even if that is in the middle of the side walk, completely blocking it. That coupled with the fact that I really didn't know how to get over there completely by myself (I used my cane to get over there since I was carrying stuff), made for interesting times. I met two people, one guy who was visiting his friend upstairs in my building, and another from church, so I guess that was ok.

Just got a call from my friend whose going to go with me to Nashville tomorrow. The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is playing there, and I've never heard them sing in persos, so I was really excited that someone from here was going too, and I could totally ride with them. They aren't singing churchy stuff I guess, but whatever they sing it will probably be pretty beautiful.

I've been doing work lately, but more than anything this week, I've been spending lots of time being stuck. I am slowly getting some stuff accomplished, but that's been in the way of mostly learning lots and lots about the software I'm using to simulate with. Monday is going to be spent most of the day talking to the experts in the office about how they think would be the best way to simulate this project I'm working on. I'm not doing work for any specific client now, so it's not mission critical that I get stuff done quickly, but I would like to figure out how to do this simulation, and it's taking me much longer than I liked.

Lots of things have been going on lately, but none that I really want to write about here. I really enjoyed my visit with my Mom. We went to the Biltmoore House in Ashville, NC on one day and walked up and down about 600 steps. That house is huge, about 4 acres under the roof (175000 sq. feet). I definitely wouldn't want to live in a house that required you to have a map to find things. That's how Vanderbilt did things though, everything was huge. He even had like 160000 acres of land, which is huge in the standards of today. Not many universities are that big :). Another day, we went into Knoxville and took both a riverboat (down the Tennessee River) and a train (upriver). They were both really cool experiences.

Anyway, that's about it from here. I'm going to make it a point to write more. I think it actually helps me, but when I get home from work, I'm always tired by the time I want to write, so that's one other reason why I haven't written. I'm doing a bit better today than I have been this week, so that's a very good thing, trust me :).

Anyway, probably should go down there and get the stuff out of the dryer. I'm actually only doing one load of laundry now even though I have like two loads worth to do, that way I don't have to carry that much down there. Would have been impossible to pull the laundry cart with all of the obstacles that I had to deal with tonight.

Oh yeah, it's raining too, albeit light, and that makes me happy too. More about the concert and other things tomorrow or the next day.

I went to Biltmoore house when I was in North Caroline last summer I think it was. Three humans and two guide dogs, an experience that was definitely interesting. You're right, that house is huge, and it doesn't have any AC, just a plethora of fans that blow constantly. On our way out, we passed the giftshop that was selling all kinds of replicas of the things in the house, and I kiddingly said something like there should be a fan that you can buy in the giftshop because there are so many of them there.
Take care, and I hope things run smoothly for you regarding work and whatever else.
Thanks again for the transfer of the rest of your paid time, it's definitely 100% appreciated.
