Mishmash.

The new Do Amazing Things DVD looks kind of cool. I guess I'll know when it shows up at our mailbox.

Working at Microsoft is pretty much everything I'd hoped it would be and then some. My first impression is that the work environment is much faster paced than anything I've encountered before, and that the people who work there are much more diverse than anything I'd seen in the Valley. It's scary right now at the onset of it all, but I believe I'll really hit my stride by summertime. Right now, I'm hard at work on a product that releases to the Web next Monday night. Well, that is if we give it the green light early, early Tuesday morning. If we don't, it didn't release, and you didn't hear me talking about it just now.

Dan says that the money for the old house should be on its electronic way to our accounts Real Soon Now. This is a relief.

I can't wait to move in to the new house. I'm really wondering what it's going to be like to live somewhere truly fabulous [as opposed to somewhere merely pretty damn swell]. I'm looking forward to being able to look out over a rolling field of apple trees and meadow across the valley to the mountains on the other side... from my breakfast table. I'm also looking forward to the quiet of country living. Oh, and I've ordered mud flaps for my VW so that I don't screw up our communally-owned gravel access road any more than is necessary. :)

Busy weekend ahead: X-Men 2 screening tomorrow, festivities Saturday night, appliance shopping, hiking.

Life continues to be good.
