The solstice was yesterday and it was beautiful here in the Pacific Northwest! It was awesome! We got out of work on time and decided to test out the 2 pools here at our apartments. Well one was filled with screaming children and had not a chair left so the pool at the main office was the winner. Still children but at least the parents were vaguely watching them. Skitch was not expecting to see have to deal with all the kids so he was not so excited about pool time then – sadly. He got in for a little bit, sat with me in the sun (thank you SPF 30+) and then he headed home. I stayed for a bit longer and read a magazine. Soon I was getting splashed by hellions so I decided that my uber pale skin could probably only take an hour in the sun anyway. I went back home hopeful that the next time there would be few children or more adults to manage them.
There’s a lot going on in nerd land right now. We had a LAN party last weekend and everyone was playing spaceships as I call it. Really it’s Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator – and it’s totally awesome. I mean it’s pretty much getting to be in an episode of The Next Generation! Everyone found something they preferred really quick and we had a good crew. I highly suggest it if you’re wanting to be a space explorer.
We also got out PAX tickets and the perfect hotel reservation [right next to the convention center – SO MUCH BETTER than the other times we’ve gone]. We got our vacation time off from work and are really excited to get to go another year. We’re starting to put almost everything into savings so we can have a real vacation not a OMG we’re broke vacation.
Somethings that are on the horizon are a few haul posts for summer – one from Modcloth and another for some beauty things that are on their way to me. I’m also working on slow carbing right now and have lots to write about including some product reviews and recipes. Here’s to a lovely summer!
What are you excited for this summer? What should I add to my summer MUST do list?
