The Return Of Day By Day, And Other Blog Notes

As I promised earlier, I've returned the daily display of Day by Day to CQ. Instead of at the top of the content, I've set it to display in the left sidebar. I've been meaning to get that done for over a week, but work issues have impinged on blogging time for the past two or three weeks. However, I wanted to make sure that Day by Day got back to its daily rotation on CQ in time for the launch of Chris Muir's new DBD collection -- which should be coming within days now!

If it's been a bit quiet here at CQ this weekend, it's due to a combination of babysitting the Little Admiral and some nasty cold and flu activity at the house, including me. I did manage to get in for an hour at the Northern Alliance Radio Network show yesterday, but most of my time since then has either been spent trying to rest up or watching Shrek 2 for the second, third, fourth, fifth, and now sixth time. I don't mind that at all -- it's a fun movie, and it beats another viewing of Disney's Princess video, which delights the Little Admiral but wears very thin on me ... very quickly.

The Little Admiral turns three later this month, by the way. My, how time flies!

I'm still working on the end of my project at work; the new call center has to get certified, and while it looks like it mostly qualifies, we still have some work to do. That'll tie me up a bit over the next few days, but not to the extent that it did over the next two weeks. In fact, I'll have some big news on CQ about me and the rest of the NARN on Tuesday, but for right now we're keeping it quiet.

The interview transcript with Beryl Wajsman has been a slow project on which to work, mostly due to the above but also because of the laptop issues that I mentioned last week. It's been behaving better since then. I bought a laptop tray specifically designed to keep better airflow around the computer, and it's helped, but I'm not sure I like the design too much. The transcripting should get some results by Tuesday, I think.

UPDATE 8:15 PM: The Little Admiral just left with her mom and her other grandparents, and she's not going quietly. Apparently the First Mate and I made her stay just a little too joyful, and she doesn't want to go home ...
