Most days I don't even remember I have a blog despite the fact that it's on my business card. Luckily no one but Aaron Melcher actually reads anything here (HI AARON! GET BACK TO WORK!) I'm only here because in the course of going through some backups, I found the predecessor to this blog circa 1998-2002. That was before blogging had even been invented! I'd post some of that stuff here but it's rather embarrassing, much like my spelling. And my art.
I'd like to make an excuse and say that this year has been pretty busy but it kind of hasn't. My tortuous involvement in A:CM had pretty much wrapped up by February. Then there were a couple conferences (woo, new hardware)! I was "busy" with GW2 until like June but that doesn't really count (G:B:U posts on the way). Then there was this build which got quite a lot of press. She showed well at BrickFiesta and took "Best Space--Large" which puts me at 3/3 at Lego events. That was the beginning of July.
Now I've mostly been revisiting some stuff I've been putting off, like moving in and such. Now that I have time I've been going through my (vast) collection of mostly ancient hardware to see what works, what doesn't, and
I've also been BBQing which is way more fun than it sounds. Now that I live in Texas, I figure it's allowed--required even. I purchased a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker which is serving me quite nicely. Many pork butts and "Pork Ribs, St Louis Style" later I think I've gotten the hang of it. Next weekend I hope to do my first beef brisket (again, Texas). Shit. Now I want BBQ.
That more or less brings us up to today. If I'm feeling especially frisky this week I'll try to clean some of this stuff up. I wouldn't hold my breath if I were you, tho.
