Back home in Sweden. I just missed all the snow, which started a day after I left and was gone a few before I returned.

Yes, well, 2 of them. Maybe the hypergate only opened briefy.

Tonight I managed to say something funny in real time instead of just thinking of it later, quite unusual. 8-)

Please be careful, the backseat appears to be haunted.

Just noticed that, it's ok, it's only half a ghost. :P

I might end up changing job soon. A friend of mine is trying to get me in with a newish company he's a part of. I'd be doing Google Apps deployment or some such. A very self-motivatey work-from-home dealy, so a scary prospect for me, but it would be a huge jump in salary at a time when I badly need one.

Speaking of which I'm probably being pretty forceably relocated soon.

Continuing on the jobs theme, I still have my job, which I was tentative about going back to after two weeks' holiday. My first week back wasn't easy, but it got better as time went on.

I also have increased hours starting next month. That's a bit of a drag in some ways, but in most ways it's a Good Thing, as it means I get (a lot) more salary.

Well if you remember how a couple months ago I mentioned Homestuck ending, a few days ago we got confirmation of a release for the Homestuck tie-in game that got Kickstarted who knows how many years ago, called Hiveswap. This is of course big news for me and thousands of other people, for me specifically because I tanked about $115 into the Kickstarter.

Oh also I'll be getting to WTL Timeline 3 soon, I've been swamped with a bunch of other stuff.

Starting my new job in the morning. Working from home for a company dealing in cloud computing. Will spend more or less the rest of the year training to be a deployment engineer. Considerable improvement in pay. (y)

I'm nervous but excited. Hope it's cool.

Furthermore I've moved my computer and whatnots to an environment where i'll have some space to mydamnself without a TV screaming garbage in my ear.
Bad news about that is that my wifi signal sucks from here and I need to figure out some way to improve that, and soon.

I guess this belongs in Positive. Finally made redundant from the job I've had for a looong time, but it's kind of a relief to leave the behemoth of an in-house system behind and take a breath for a while (without having needed to make the decision myself). Time to pursue my own ideas that I haven't had the time to do much with.

My cupboards are currently rocking nearly 36L of English bitter-style beer that I made with my own hands. Won a voucher to go and make a batch at a place where you can do that. Not fancy but not bad. Left another 6L at my parents' place too.

Sounds like that'd be fun to try.
