Good morning, Riverdale!

I met AJ and Denisse for dinner last night and we had a nice meal at Ruby Tuesday’s. As it turns out, Karen was meeting her mom there for dinner last night, so AJ and Denisse got to meet her as well. By the time dinner was over, I was pretty tired. AJ and Denisse were heading over to Costco and I headed home. I got home shortly before 10 PM and I went straight to bed.

Which explains why I am wide awake at 7:30 AM on a Saturday.

It’s been cooler out these last several days, but today it’s supposed to get back up into the mid-80s. The plan for today is to try and finish up The Demon-Haunted World. I’d like to start on Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors tomorrow if I can. Maybe a little writing, too, and perhaps a little work on the book database. I also have to do at least one Critters critique by Wednesday.

Tomorrow is my last Orioles game of the 2006 season. It should actually be a good one: O’s vs.the Twins, who are only 1-1/2 games back from the division lead. I invited AJ to go to the game with me.


It’s exactly 8 PM and I’ve been in bed for 10 minutes already. It’s been a long day. Lots of programming at work today. And a related story which I am too tired to relate now but which I will tell you about tomorrow.

After work, I went to dinner with Karen. We went to Crystal City. Can you believe I work one Metro stop from Crystal City and I’ve never been there? We ate at a ribs joint and the food and conversation was really good.

But it meant a very long day. I got home from work at about 7:30 PM and I am beat. I took care of the usual chores, and then climbed into bed. I’m planning on reading more of The Demon-Haunted World, but I’m not sure if I will make it very far. We’ll see.
