Why yes, it has been a while.

The new job has been keeping even busier than I could have imagined. And yes, it's stressful. But I am certainly not bored.

When I began, we were in the last phase of the development cycle: an interesting tumult to find myself in the middle of. Now we've struggled through a QA process and are ready to begin the deployment process. This is going to be the make-or-break, the point at which we find out whether or not the solution I architected will work or not.

The point at which we find out if the company will exist in six months.

Yeah, I'm a little anxious. Everyone else is a bit on edge, as well. But I have faith that this really will all come together.

I've not had as much time as I'd have liked to spend with my friends, or go bike riding or skiing, or do work about the house. But I keep telling myself that it can't go on like this forever (can it?) Instead, I've channeled my non-work energy into refining my stereo at home. (Aside: "stereo" doesn't really communicate what I'm trying to build, and "hi-fi" sounds so archaic... what should I be calling it?) I've also done a little de-accumulation and tidying. It feels good. I need to do more. Maybe when I've tidied more, I can have a smallish party at my house. (I don't think I've thrown a party since... 1994? Wow.)

Last night, I dreamt that I was at a friends house. I asked to use their bathroom, which was done up in pale green, with wicker butterflies on the walls. I needed to see what was causing the pain in my mouth. When I looked in the mirror, I was bleeding profusely from a piece of plastic that had gotten wedged between my molars.
