Never Create What You Can’t Control

My apologies for the lack of posts, and to a whole slew of people whose emails I’ve been meaning to reply to. You can blame the Cylons. They have taken over my life. I’ve gotten completely sucked into the new Battlestar Galactica series. Over the weekend we spent most of our waking hours with the husband’s family, as his eldest sister was visiting from Florida, with her husband and their little girl. We had a good time hanging out but when we were back at our place, and I should have been sleeping, I was completely consumed by the blue glow. I am such a geek. Speaking of which…yesterday I was semi-formally invited to be an honored guest at this year’s Geek Prom. It’s being held in the Twin Cities for the first time (instead of Duluth, like Geek Proms past), and it’s practically in my backyard. I’m planning to attend, of course. But in true geek fashion, I may be date-less. Yesterday’s conversation with the husband was as follows:

Me: So…I’ll be needing a date for the geek prom.
Him: [cold silence]
Me: Would you…
Him: [cutting me off before I could get the question out] No.

I swear he’s not imaginary…just anti-social. Anyone else want to be my date? Or send me some suggestions for my attire? Anyhow, the weekend, combined with daylight savings and my first weight-training workout yesterday morning = super-tired Sharyn. But I will not let the Cylons kill my blog. Photographic evidence will be forthcoming.
Bonus: Nerd alert. Tomorrow morning, at two minutes and three seconds after 1:00 in the morning, the time and date will be 01:02:03 04/05/06.
