Current Distractions, Belated August 2011 Edition

Last month was a whirlwind, to put it mildly. I went from my Company’s office, to no fewer than three different job sites, two of which required drug tests* for access (so I had two pleasant afternoons of hydrating madly to convince my shy bladder that it would be alright to pee in a cup). Work stress has thus been a bit higher than usual, and the hours have generally been longer than the standard 40 hours.

The other major distraction was preparing for travel at the end of the month. I went to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, which I think warrants a post of its own, so I’m not going to say much about it right now. But prior to the trip I was at a remote site, and so my preparations were all a lot more rushed than they normally are. Fortunately I was with two other people, and so we all sort of managed to get things figured out as we went.

I have an announcement post that’ll be going up shortly after this one (and hopefully the Dragon*Con one), which will please and/or disappoint you. In the meantime, I’m hoping to get back to work on my reading in the very near future. (I brought Good Omens with me for reading during the con, and I finished it on the flight home, so I’m all set for a new book!)

* That brings my Total Lifetime Drug Tests quantity to four, which I feel is kind of a huge amount.
