Our next is on Saturday.

Our last normal rehearsal was today — we're having a last one just before the concert, before rehearsing with the musicians and singer two hours before it starts.

The pre-performance nerves are doing their rounds through the

It seems that I managed to fix an old . We were going to throw it out anyway, so I opened it (there were no screws).

Turns out there was a loose part in there. After some experimentation I got it back in place, and now it appears to be working.

I guess Valentine's Day is good for filling the timeline with cute art. Keep them coming 😃

I've been preoccupied with reading about the EZ.

Why do people keep making cool-looking, expensive things?

The winds came
howling from the Great North,
swallowing everything
with its white maw

Teeth of frost gnashing
mercilessly upon anything
and anyone found
devoid of shelter

Sparkling under
a bright moon
A soft breath misting
upon the air

One last time

But the wind ceaseless
in its mindless cruelty

I guess I could demand payment for "undertime" today—I usually start work at 08:00, but today there was a meeting scheduled at 07:30…

I've spent much of the day assembling furniture in my old room at my mother's place.

The room is just about done now, the only things left is putting things in their place, and possibly hanging some shelves and pictures.

During February I'm part of the group responsible for bringing refreshments to the rehearsals.

I did not expect to get a call from the leader of the local chapter of Noregs Mållag ("The Norwegian Society"), who decided to use a lull at their store to talk to me about my workplace's attitude to nynorsk.

I wasn't happy with the noise emitted by my case fans, so I bought new ones.

It's nice to be able to play without the computer sounding like a plane taking off.

Thought I'd share the view from the office the other day.

The fog lifted a little later in the day, giving way to sun.

I managed to do some somewhat relevant work writing documentation for my pet programming project.

Then my mother called, and I fell into the timesink that is genealogy. And then Minecraft.
