Chance To Rest
January 28, 2006
Today was a nice day, because, if for nothing else, it was the first complete day I've been able to spend at my apartment since I moved here a month ago. When your home isn't quite fully moved into yet, it can be a bit disconcerting. At least for me it can.
I gave the apartment complex's washer/dryer facilities a try for the first time. The one thing I don't like about my new apartment is that it doesn't have a washer/dryer. No hookup for one, nothing. If it had that, and if my cell service wasn't so horrible here (due to my proximity to the bay), it'd be ideal. But the machines worked just fine, which was nice.
The first week for the BTLS show in Tampa was successful. I've felt overwhelmed with some things (such as the merchandising), but I figure that once a routine is set there, things will flow easier.
It's quite amazing to see where all of the e-mails at work come in from, coast to coast, and many from Canada as well. It's wonderful to see that the show has the reach that it's deserved for so long.
One week and change from the Super Bowl, and I think Pittsburgh will win. Ben Roethlisberger has proved to be something really special, and I think that everyone will suddenly realize that after Super Bowl XL.
