Friday: Def Leppard Concert
This was awesome! Went with good friends (friends who are especially fun to go to concerts with) and had a fantastic time.

Saturday: Birthday Party for Byron
This, too, was awesome! There was great food (seriously, really fantastic food made by many kitchen staff) and wonderful conversation as well.

Sunday: Home
Was going to play video games, but was too exhausted from the weekend to really put in any time. Also super stressed about the dentist on Monday.

Monday: Dentist
This was NOT a good day but it wasn't bad. The right side of my mouth had deep cleaning. Took about 2 hours. Was unpleasant, but not super bad. Had my headphones and listened to the new Green Day album, which was super helpful.

Tuesday: A Day of Rest (so to speak)
Tuesday was a pretty normal day - went to work. Built a new DNS server and retired the old one. At home after, it was a relaxing night, lounging with the giant cats of the house, and the not so giant one. And that was good, because...

Wednesday (today): Dentist
Had the right side of my mouth deep cleaned today. All the anesthetic has kind of messed me up for today. My focus is shot all to hell, and it's really kind of a challenge to work today, but I got this. I also suspect that, due to some issues during the cleaning, my adrenaline was way up and I am now working on coming down off that. I suspect that I will be sleeping well and maybe early tonight.

So tired...

Looking back at the journal I see that my last post of any content I provided was back in June. So, it seems to be just about the right time for my bi-annual LJ post (I'm hoping I get round to being a bit more on top of posting).

Life has been weird in all kinds of glorious ways. I have been to Reno for the first time in my life and discovered that I'm not a fan, and I probably wouldn't like Las Vegas very much for the reasons I didn't like Reno, but I did have an amazing time while I was there. The occasion for the visit was WorldCon, which was an experience and a half, let me tell you. I got back into sound production (all tech work, no actual engineering) and had forgotten how much I love it.

I got to go to my very first Counting Crows concert, which involved driving four hours each way, giant wind turbines, wind, lightning, blinking red lights in the darkness on the drive back reminiscent of an alien invasion, an awesome concert, introduction to new music I dearly love and some wonderful company. This particular trip is one I will treasure for a long time to come.

There were a couple of trips to San Francisco this last year as well. These are drives that I adore, both for the drive and for the destination and company when I get there. There will be more of these in the year to come. For my sanity, there has to be.

This last year has brought me a partner-in-crime who is up for just about any adventure. We've been to the fair, on a train, to a couple of cons, movies, dinners, concerts and the lot.

And of the cons, this year was also my first Steamcon and the first year for Geek Girl Con. Both were very much fun and I look forward to doing these in the future. With those two, the total for cons this last year was 5.

Christmas brought me a wonderful present that was given by many people. I thank you all. Seriously. It means a lot to me! This present (a Canon Rebel EOS T2i) has rekindled my creativity in photography. I'm finding all the things I can do now that I wasn't able to do with my old camera and thinking of all the new and creative ways I can use it and coming up with new and wonderful ideas for pictures.

I am excited and looking forward to the coming year for a GREAT MANY reasons.
