[personal] A bit of updatery

Busy workday today in Day Jobbe land. Thanks to a combination of vacation, holiday and business travel, I won't be back at my desk after today for over two weeks. So lots of makeup ball to play in advance.

After work I scramble madly to pack and be ready for Steamcon. I am setting out rather early Friday morning in hopes of making my noon panel, weather and I-5 traffic permitting. calendula_witch is already in Seattle, and will meet me there Friday afternoon. We're home late Sunday afternoon.

In other news, I found a wet patch in the basement carpet this morning in a location which can only signify a foundation leak. I am virtually certain this will be the opening salvo in a messy and expensive problem, and I'm not very happy about it. At least it's only the house that's having potentially major issues and not, say, myself or another family member.

Kalimpura beckons, with me trying to lay down some more wordage before work.
