Falling behind

I can see where the two biggest problems of this LiveJournal experiment will be:

1) Finding time to update
2) Finding time to keep up with Friends' updates.  I am honored to know that you all think I'm worth keeping track of, but Jaysus, we're a talkative lot!

Doings over the weekend: working the Jousting Championships at Angels Camp.  We were there essentially to serve as cheerleaders for our assigned kaniggets.  OK, anyone who doesn't enjoy cheering for the Black Knight just isn't a Python fan (he won, BTW), but if I'm going to spend my money and blow a weekend being a cheerleader, I want wages.  it would also be nice if the OTHER friggin' groups showed up to do their part of the load.  I don't know who was supposed to be rooting for the Red, Silver, or Purple, but they were AWOL all weekend. 

Kate strained her ankle Friday night, was stuck in the camp all Saturday and most of Sunday.  The fairgrounds don't look hilly, but one hill, done fifteen or twenty times in one day, is just as exhausting as fifteen or twenty individual hills.   We're too old to den down in Actors Camp or such, so Kate got us a hotel room off in Sonora. where we could put our napalmed feet up.

SEIU Union is picketing the various tall buildings here on Market Street.  Two solid days of marchers, chants, drums, airhorns.  I'm all in favor of decent pay and benefits, but I wonder if these people understand that the people who make the decisions on such things aren't anywhere near here, and all they're doind is giving their fellow drones headaches?

Still plugging away at the compiler build.  Beginning to find places where the builds fail because of mistakes in the scripts themselves, so I must be learning something.

    Miles Vorkosigan rides on. 'Cryoburn' shows that domestic tranquility has not taken away his mastery of chaos, his or other peoples. Not as all-out…
