I really don’t know how software devs handle working on the same thing for so long.  I’ve been working on this one pieces of a large project at work, and I’ve been practically going cross eyed.  Today I was given a bit of a break(a different part had more priority, and needed some extra hands) and got moved over to @qrevolution ’s section of the project.  It was refreshing. Something new.  Working on the same thing for so long, it gets harder to keep perspective.

I’m also all ready for the SNOW that is supposed to happen this weekend.  Even acquired some snow boots for the first time in years. Before that happens though, anyone know any good places in MN close to the Twin Cities for taking fall photos?  Or getting pumpkins?  Planning a field trip this weekend.

Also, I’m watching Ghost Hunters right now, and …MEATLOAF is on it.  O.o Good show Mr. Loaf.

The move is a week away! I’ve been closing up all the final loopholes I needed to get done. I have signed some papers, run back and forth to MN (and dropped off half the tech, breakables and houseplants,) had my address changed at every place important (minus one back in MN. )  Now I just have to make it through this week of work (pre-end-of-phase-about-to-send-to-QA-work-scramble) and pack this weekend.

Ugh. Packing.  Anyone want to pack for me?  I have pepperoni, half an onion and coconut rum in my fridge, I’m sure I could fix up something worthy of the work…

I’m probably one of the only people that is happy to have this furlough, since I didn’t have to take a week of PTO to move, or (horror!) work part of the week.  I can’t even be called in, or anything since I’m technically ‘teporarally’ laid off for the week.  Which is ‘kinda funny since I’m taking all my work equipment with me – on my move – 300 miles away.  It would be nice to be if it was paid, but then it would be a furlough.  Hopefully the biz turns around.  But at least I’ll be somewhere where there is a larger pool of opportunities or at least a larger personal support network.

I’m looking forward to working remotely.  It’s going to be a challenge, not being right there where my coworkers are.  Though half of our office (the half I actually have to deal with directly the most) is actually all the way over in Cincinnati – so none of that will change at all.

On another topic – I’m using a pre-made theme for my blog, but I want to make my own.  I’m pretty awesome at the css/js/html/coding thing.  Maybe I should show it off a bit – since I sorta do it for a living.  I also need to make something for this forum I have waiting to be pushed.  Any ideas suggestions?  Orange is a must, but should I do something plain, yet classy?  Easy on the eyes, yet stylish? (ORANGE CAN TOO!)  Nifty graphics and smooth lines (curves, snazzy borders)? Simple and minimalist? Busy but not too busy? Columns/rows?

Well, I mostly have the blog setup, and even have it cross posting to LJ.  (after realizing that no, I do not in fact,have to edit the php source of the plugin – there is a settings page that makes it all easy like!)

It’s very orange.  Any suggestions on plugins/widgets?  The search on wordpress’ site is pretty dismal.
