flummoxicated: (steampunk)
We found out only last week that there was a steampunk con only about 3 hours away, so we made plans to day trip it on Saturday. However, after I woke up at 5:30 to start getting ready I realized I didn't really want to drive that far, have to figure out where to change clothes, that sort of thing. Turns out Jeff felt the same way, so we went back to sleep. The rest of the day was pretty productive; we went to a local park to shoot footage for his next music video, he made some spotlights, I graded and did some office reorganization.

In a good news / bad news event, they are remodeling the English department this summer, but that means we have to pack up all our books and papers. This is a little traumatic for me, I have trust issues to begin with (especially where my books are concerned), and I found out that when they remodeled the history department last summer some of their possessions went astray! So I only trusted the uni with things that could easily be replaced, and photographed the interiors of each box, and numbered each box - told you, trust issues. I had to figure out what I would need for summer writing and first thing in the fall, so I've got those labeled, and that's where the office organization came in. I liberated a bookshelf that has just been stashed in a corner for my home office. Most of my stuff is here, I have a couple of floor lamps (I hate fluorescent lighting) and a couple of boxes to bring home, but since I have to sit in on senior capstone presentations this week, I'll have ample opportunity to bring them home.

Sunday we went to a vintage base ball game for a picnic lunch. I'm not up on regular baseball, much less the vintage variety, but it was still fun. Jeff (who never does anything halfway) packed sandwiches in wax paper and decanted root beer into blue glass bottles. At the end of the game, the captain of the home team thanked us for dressing up for their event, so that was cool.

Jeff and I continue to pass this cold, which in my case hasn't quite turned into a cold, back and forth. He slept for 12 hours this morning. I barely had the energy to make it through my classes Friday.

I seem to have developed a bit of a crush on both Bob Odenkirk (hilarious) and Vince Gilligan (genius).  I'm also depressed about this whole government shutdown thing. It's also depressing to know that Socrates was right about rhetoric being abused by people with no ethics. Stupid Socrates.

My spouse's website has moved. If you liked shipbrook.com, you will love www.shipbrook.net!

I mention this because he has a bunch of interesting stuff that you may have come across and bookmarked or linked to. If not, you might be interested in checking it out. For example:

Fonts from the 1600s - http://www.shipbrook.net/jeff/typograf.html
Old texts on music and dance, madrigals, 16th century joke book, etc. -
http://www.shipbrook.net/jeff/#oldtexts
His page of Spanish costumes is popular - it's now http://www.shipbrook.net/jeff/costumes.html

The index is here - http://www.shipbrook.net/jeff/index.html - eclectic stuff, you may find something interesting.

Finally, his page on potted meat food product (http://www.shipbrook.net/jeff/potted.html) has been around almost as long as the Internet. Every week he still gets emails that basically say, "Hey, I LIKE potted meat! You're a jerk!"

Ten Years!

Jeff and I have been married ten years today. That seems like a long time when you write it out...ten years...it doesn't feel like it was all that long ago. He makes me very happy :) That may sound sappy but it's true. Not many men in contemporary American society would move 800+ miles away so their wives could attend grad school. I hope I make him as happy as he makes me.

November 4 is the birthday of two very important men in my life:

[livejournal.com profile] shipbrook - My spouse, the sober yang to my raging yin

[livejournal.com profile] the_lunchbox  - mon frère

Happy birthday to my hubby ~ shipbrook
and to my brotha ~ the-lunchbox



 Born on the same day, the same year. Yes, two Scorpios, but their temperaments seem to disprove that whole astrology thing. Maybe it's a Connecticut vs. Buffalo thing? Anyway, here they are, the quiet guy playing the outspoken one and vice versa:



Love,
Ginevra P.S. - LiveJournal, your code sux but I'm too busy to fix it right now.
