Yes, well, apparently I'm now fighting off a sinus infection. Timely, what with the weather change and all. Makes for a bit o' misery in the whole breathing-and-headache department.

Watched another 20 minutes of "The Haunting" last night (thanks to windelina for the recommendation). I'd actually like to watch it from beginning to end, but stealing that much time from my day in one chunk doesn't seem likely real soon. It does however give me a great idea for a themed party. Not quite sure how to pull it off quite yet, but I'll think of a way.

I'm actually close to being able to organize the house. Since Sasha has moved out, her room is now mostly open but for a few things that were already there. I'm strongly considering moving the editing station out of the studio and into that room and having that be a computer room/office/library. That would open up the studio for excavation/demolition/cleaning/remodeling so I can actually get it back as usable space. Then the room formerly known as the Room Where No One Walks can be emptied of most of my Iowa stuff that remains, the carpet pulled, the floor sanded, and other repairs made. It would then become a TV room/guest room/massage room.

It's actually starting to come together.

The only damper would be if I decide to get a roommate. While I like the idea from a money and company perspective, I also like the idea of a solitary house that I can do with as I wish.

I suppose it wouldn't be that hard to move things about should I decide to take on a roommate later. And really, the upstairs bathroom needs to be remodeled to become useful in other than a bare-bones capacity.

Some of the stuff will happen this winter, when it's too cold to be working outside. One thing that I really want to do is set up workbenches in the basement. That will let me organize a lot of stuff that's far too scattered now.

I'm feeling excited about it again.

Oooh, Tony just reminded me that we need to do set dressing for a set in the movie that we're shooting toward the end of October. And that means we need nice-looking fabric, and lots of it.

Think Inara's shuttle in Firefly.

We need lots of nice-looking (not necessarily actually nice) fabric, scarves, and the like to attach to the walls. We also need some clubb-y set dressing (particularly lights, perhaps a mirror ball-- think dance club) and some other random bits.

We'll probably need some people to help with decorating and dressing the set on the 28th.

We might also need some vampire extras for shooting on the 29th and 30th. I think we're going kinda goth-y here.

More later as we progress, but if'n you have any suggestions or can help out, there would be much appreciation.

How cool is it that I work in a place that has a five-foot-tall tank of liquid nitrogen in the back, and biohazard stickers for one of the projects because it's dealing with genetic recombination?

I'm burned out on programming this week, I think. I've just spent the last two plus hours addressing mismatches in type between two modules because somebody put in system calls in a backdoor a long time ago.

Hey, you know that door that was blocked open with me standing right outside? Yeah, that was me who blocked it open so that I could go back inside after my cell phone call without having to walk halfway around the freaking building when it's bloody cold. I appreciate your sense of security, but you know, the building is open, and it's regular business hours, and I'M STANDING RIGHT OUTSIDE THE FREAKING DOOR.

I hope your car breaks down at 2 in the morning in the middle of nowhere, asshat.
