We all love the "hurry up and wait". Nothing better than that. Work is now in the "wait" phase. We've got candidate builds in at the publisher for the European versions of the game. The first parties (Sony and Nintendo) are presumably picking over the game to see if they can find reasons to kick it back to us.
One nice(?) thing about living at GMT+8 is that if you don't have email from Europe in your inbox at the beginning of the workday, you're not going to get it for the rest of the day. For me, this may mean reorganizing the office, or bugging out early. Like 11am.
One odd tradition that's developed between my folks and me is that for Mother's Day, Mom and Dad will come for the weekend, and weed and garden and do other home-ownerly tasks that I wouldn't get to on my own. This year, we rescheduled as I was going to be flying back from DC on Mother's Day.
So this weekend was the annual dig-the-weeds-out-of-the-flower-garden fest. I was confident that it was going to rain the entire weekend. Indeed, as the weekend progressed, I was confident that a massive downpour was 5 minutes away the entire time. No downpour. Which meant lots of blackberry vine cutting, lots of dandelion pulling, lots of venitian blind installing.
All good stuff. I'm sore now.
I just read "Eats, Shoots, and Leaves" by Lynne Truss. It's a fun little book about punctuating correctly, and the frustrations of those who can, but live in a world of people who can't.
I'm a little self-conscious now about my commas.
Probably not enough.
Still walking, yay me. Didn't get in much devoted exercise time while the parents were in town. Still making progress, though. I'm once again seeing each movie on my TiVo as exercise opportunity.
