And…we’re back. The server my site resides on went down about 3pm yesterday, and didn’t come back until sometime this morning. Sorry ’bout that — these things do happen from time to time, though.
In the meantime…
Yesterday, a customer came wandering into the store. “Hi there,” I greeted him. “Anything we can help you with today?”
“Yeah, I wanted to look at a couple cameras.” Then he paused and took a closer look at me. “Um…are you Michael? Of Eclecticism?”
I laughed. “Yeah, that’s me.”
“I’m Joe — Pop Astronaut.”
And another connection was made between the online world and real life. We chatted for a bit, then got him set up with the camera he’d been considering. Small world!
Small bits related to my recent re-acquaintance with television:
- Last night, Prairie and I finished our Desperate Housewives Season One marathon, which we’d been working on for the past couple weeks. We’ve both been enjoying watching Season Two on Sunday nights, and have been borrowing Season One so that I could get caught up on all the back story.
Battlestar Galactica has started up again also, and I’ve been doing my best to avoid any articles about the first episode of the second half of Season Two until I get a chance to watch it myself. The episode is sitting on my ‘puter…I just need to get a chance to watch it! Maybe tonight…
Finally, Lost finally starts up again this Wednesday — and because I’m working until 10pm that night, I’m not going to be able to see it until I get a chance to download it! Grrrrr…stupid work. ;)
And I think that pretty much brings us up to date. Plans for tonight are light: work ’til 6pm, do my reading for school tomorrow, have dinner, and watch tonight’s Desperate Housewives. Non-stop excitement, I tell you!

It was great to put a face to the name, Michael and a pleasure to meet you. I love my camera.
LOL, been there. ’bout 4 years ago I had quit my java dev. position for something “less stressful” and worked at a computer store as a sales rep. It turns out that one of my regular customers was someone I knew from alt.2600 and he recognized me on day 1 from my pix on my website. A little unsettling at first, but pretty funny now. :)
