ponderosa: photographic portrait of Idris Elba in a fedora from GQ magazine (misc - idris)
[personal profile] ponderosa
I'm settling in to the new job nicely. Getting to know my co-workers better has been going at a nice pace, and so far everyone is absolutely lovely. As I've been adjusting to the change in schedule, I've also been re-learning how to cook meals more complicated than stir-fry. I do miss having customer interaction as part of my daily routine, but at the same time it's a welcome change. Building my wardrobe back out again is slower going, but I added some new key foundation pieces, and I'm looking forward to taking my bike out to do some thrifting around town after pay day.

I feel like I've been making a ton of changes that have been a long time coming, like I swapped out my iMac for my gaming laptop, and even if my Cintiq isn't an ideal main monitor, it's still very usable and I'm enjoying not needing to reboot to swap between drawing and playing stuff. It took a full day to get everything updated and patched, but I played a little Battlefield 3 for a first time in forever. Our internet connection is still not ideal, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to actually hop in to multiplayer anytime soon, or even brush the dust off my WoW account, though it's lag spikes now instead of random disconnects which may still make basic dungeon tanking a possibility. I can't seem to fully get into Guild Wars, but that could be primarily just that J's been preoccupied with homework assignments so I'm not getting the social satisfaction when I log in and poke at it solo.

Today I'm debating whether or not to sign up for a third holiday exchange, and also I may make cookies or pumpkin pie brownies. I may also perhaps watch some baseball and make new icons and chip away at needed correspondence. Good times.

Pumpkin pie brownies? I have never heard of such a thing but they sound delicious.

I assume the "healthy" being relative when placed next to the usual Halloween consumables?

(yeah, a stick and a half of butter ...)
