First Firefly, and now Eureka. With Eureka canceled, what will Syfy do next? More Wrestling - yeah, that's "Syfy'y"

It's only a matter of time before Syfy (btw: I still like "SciFi") goes the way of MTV: showing all non-related genre shows and appealing to only 1% of their market. Seriously, MTV back in the day was Music TV. I still recall turning it on (no matter what time of day) and seeing random music videos. Now, it's all about "who can get pregnant the first" and "what little bitch can spend all of her daddy's money on useless items" (I recall one episode that my girlfriend was watching about one 16-year-old who made her dad return her birthday beetle because it was the "wrong color." MTV makes me want to drop kick the TV.

Why not bring back the actual quality programs that make the channel unique, like Eureka and Firefly? Those shows actually pushed the limits of creativity, both in the writers and the audience. Sure, it's not Dr. Who, but it still had that spark of interest that said "This hasn't been done before. Let's do it!"

xkcd
What if Wikipedia existed during the Magic School Bus? That'd be a short series...

Wow, has it really been 2 weeks since I posted last? It's been a super-busy 2 weeks and a lot has happened. Here's an overview (without too many details):

  • We moved into the new house! YAY! We're still moving in stuff and getting it organized, but we are now living there and it's great to be right down the street from downtown and the office! It did take a while to get things packed up and moved, and we're still doing it

  • We had a dispute with one of our clients: NSMT. Apparently, some communcation got crossed/lost/misunderstood and things got a little hectic, but now it's better and we're working our butts off to get their stuff done ASAP!

  • Keat's parents came down for the weekend to help us move. I can honestly say that the tension was so thick, you couldn't cut it with a knife - you'd need some type of chainsaw on steroids! On the good side, they didn't talk about much - just the moving. That's also the bad side: we needed to talk about our wedding plans, and they didn't want to. However, we did get some house repair and needed items (like the blue recycling bags that Waynesville requires). So it's an adequate trade-off.

  • We are in negotations with a few new clients. I won't say much, but here's our potential client list thus far (minus some personal details):

    1. A photo sharing/selling company

    2. An anniversary that has a party and needs an invitation site

    3. A travel and booking business

    4. A local entertainment center

    5. A Psychic person (?)

    6. An unknown person that contacted us at the office and wants to help us (or us help them; I'm not sure)

    7. A local Retirement lodge

    8. A political action group

    9. and a Property management company


  • I just got June's Hello World out today. I know it's the 13th, but better late than never, right?

  • Had a bunch of meetings with current clients and the Exec. Director for SMDC. Along with NSMT, we're also working on Lu's Specialties Foods and Innocent Footprints at the same time (while moving....yay)

  • and a few other things that I can't recall right now. Like I said: it's been a busy 2 weeks.


On a semi-related note, I know the xkcd comic is a little far-fetched, but I thought it would be a good re-entry to the posting. Along with seeing an episode of it (about Heat) on Saturday while eating lunch. Pretty cool!

I have also collected some pretty cool comics while out and about, so I'll be posting those as well to catch up to my quota.

Hey, look! Here's another one:
Bug


I'm gonna finish moving stuff in and get some NSMT stuff done too. My "To Do" list is getting longer everyday....not good.

And I know the title of this posting is "Mustard". I already have one called "Ketchup". Why not add a little "Chili", "Relish", and some "Hot Sauce" while I'm at it? I think I have some titles ready to go for the rest of the week....

Quaint

Over the weekend, it has been super busy with all of the house hunting and dealing with Keat's parents. The word of the day had to be "quaint" because that is the only term that we could use to describe some of the houses. One that we saw seemed like it was out of a Dr. Seuss book (literally). After saying "goodbye" to her parents, the sanity could once return to our world.

This comic seems to sum up my list of to-do's around the office. Although I only had 2 days of actual work last week (as seen in my last posting), I frantically spent all of Wednesday cleaning up the apartment. After flying through the place, making sure everything had it's own little home, Keat's parents walk in on Saturday (or Friday? I don't recall - all of those days blurred together), the only comment they could say is "what a crummy place". I'm sorry - we are the ones who live there, and for us, this is clean (you can see the floor and there aren't clothes strewn everywhere [wow, I think that's the first time I've used that word]). For doing a super-fast clean-up from a pseudo-packing task, I say it's pretty good.

All stress aside, we did see one house that we really liked. I won't go much into details yet (so I don't jinx it), but her parents are placing the bids on the house. As I was afraid of, her parents also have a LONG list of "requirements" to be met before anything can proceed (with us, not the house). I won't go into that because that could be another blog entry on its own.

Now, we're back to work, nearly a week after I made the last posting. A lot of work and so little time.

Edit: Little side note, but Keat finally graduated from HCC on Thursday! I didn't mean to overshadow this with the parent visit, but I wanted to let the world know!
