Death to the paperwork monster!

Posted by Eric Johnson on June 16, 2010 at 5:45 PM Comments comments (14)

Of course, on some level, I realized that taking 6 days out of town to do the convention and see family, that paperwork would accumulate while I was gone.  And, of course, rationally speaking, I expected to have a huge pile of work waiting for me when I got back to work today.

Knowing something, and actually seeing something are often very different things, however.

I'll be working on slicing this pile of "to do" items down to size for a while, I think...

Daily Blog Postings - FAIL!

Posted by Eric Johnson on June 16, 2010 at 5:33 PM Comments comments (0)

Yep.  I failed to keep anything like a daily blog posting going for a while now.

In retrospect, the mistake I made was to try and get my daily blogging habit going right before the big lead up to working my first convention.

Not only did I have con prep, but I also had to work like crazy at work to have a clean in-box before the very extended weekend and extra time off.

If I had developed a daily habit BEFORE the crazy hectic tim...

A Con Report I thought would be brief...

Cherry Capital Con 2010 is behind me.

Official con website:


The box of comics I brought to sell isn't much lighter than when I first put it in the car. But, I got the experience of "working a con" in my hometown.


Saw old friends, including at least one that it was really important to see about now, with what's going on in his life.


My being there got ...

Almost forgot that was coming up... Going Postal

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 30, 2010 at 4:11 PM Comments comments (0)

I was just reminded by a news post.

This week on the BBC will be the TV movie adaptation of "Going Postal", one of the great Discworld novels by Terry Pratchet.  The third such live-action adaptation by the BBC.

Discworld is one of the few book series I still find time to read, even with my "reading a lot less books" lifestyle of the past few years.  When a new one comes out, I get it, and devour it in a year or two.

The int...

Current Season of Doctor Who

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 30, 2010 at 3:32 PM Comments comments (0)

Really liking the current season of Doctor Who.

A few observations

1)  Matt Smith has clicked into place for me as the Doctor faster than any other regeneration, I think.

I was willing to accept him as the Doctor early on the first episode, and by the time of his verbal confrontation with some aliens at the end, I *believed* it.

This bodes well.   As an actor, Matt needs to find his own voice for ...

From a note I recently sent someone...

Here's an little chunk out of a note I just sent someone:


Ever been exchanging correspondence with someone, then something comes up, you have a bunch of bad days in a row, and totally can't get back to it?

Then, you resolve to get back to the time-delayed conversation, but there's a slight additional delay as you get your thoughts back together. Then you think you better take the time to come up with a really long, detai...

Beginner's Mistake out of the way....

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 23, 2010 at 4:47 PM Comments comments (2)

Well, I did that stupid thing....

I spent about 45 minute writing a blog post.    Quite a few words.  Longest one yet.

Several pages long.

Moderately clever.   Pretty well constructed, I thought.

(some of you probably know where this is going already)

I had an extended metaphor built up.  And a lead up to future blog posts.

Hundreds of carefully constructed words.

Ambitions of Daily Blog Posts

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 22, 2010 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (2)

So, I've set myself the goal of posting one blog post here every day.

Shouldn't be too tough, right?  Lots of people do that, and more, on a blog.

Of course, I'll have to have something worth "saying" each day.  I'm not really the type of person to blog about a random boring day, but since it's happening to ME, I'll share the details of the day with everyone who stops by the appropriate website.

Not that there's anything wro...

Going to Cherry Capital Con

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 21, 2010 at 8:43 AM Comments comments (21)

So, why this month to get a website up and running?

Well, so I'd have something to put on a business card to give out at a convention...

I'm going to be going to Cherry Capital Con on June 12th and 13th.


And, I'm not just going as a fan, I went ahead and rented an exhibitor's table...


...Yep, I'll be sitting behind a table, wat...

Guess it's time to declare this thing open...

Posted by Eric Johnson on May 20, 2010 at 12:03 PM Comments comments (24)

Well, here it is.  I've got a website.

Most who come here should have at least *some* idea as to who I am.   A hypothetical visitor at this stage is either friend, family, or someone following a link from my sig file from another website of mutual interest. So, probably not a lot of fresh, vibrant, and new content for most people.  But it is some information nicely arranged in one place. 

Still a bit of work to do, such as on the L...
