Am I everything you need?

Yup, I’m back. My latest hiatus from blogging has been the longest yet, I think, and it’s been long enough that I even have to do some work to upgrade the blog software and add-ons as well.

Not much is all that new in my life…I’m once again working a little too much, but I’ve moved from the Evil Corporation to the Slightly-Less-Evil Corporation that bought the division I work for. The work to integrate into the new company is what’s got me putting in the extra hours again (sigh).

I’m still sailing…the boat went into the water last month, but it took until a few days ago to get the mast raised so that BogMan and I could actually get out on the river. We actually went for a swim while out last weekend, making it the earliest time of year that I’ve ever been in the Ottawa River. It wasn’t exactly polar bearing, but let’s just say it was cold enough to cause some serious shrinkage.

The biggest change since the last time I blogged is the introduction of a new hobby: Golf! Yes, that sport that I’ve spent many years deriding is now a favourite pastime…let the mockery ensue. Happy Phantom and Kamelot dragged me out last June, and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. So I picked up some second-hand clubs and I’ve been slowly learning how to play. I’m definitely not what anyone would call “good”, but I can see some gradual improvement since last year, and that’s enough for now.

At some point, I’d like to talk a little about the Lost finale, but I’m going to let my thoughts on it percolate a little first. I’ve really enjoyed Lost, but the finale wasn’t quite what I was expecting or hoping for. I’m not willing to go so far as to say I didn’t like it, but it definitely left a few things hanging…however, since I’m pretty sure that was a conscious choice on the part of the writers, I’d like to think on it a bit before passing judgement… :-)

Anyway, that’s all I have to say today…I’m back, and hopefully I’ll stick around for a while this time!
