Things of Note:

This past week has been characterized by waiting. Waiting for clients and potential clients to get back to me. Waiting for test results. Waiting for things to arrive in the mail. Waiting for the sun to break through the rain. I… am not the most patient person, so to say I’ve been a bit irritable this past week might be an understatement (sorry, Ian). On the upside, all of that waiting meant I had free time to compile the excellent list above (you’re welcome), read 2 books, watch 2 movies, and do a massive culling of my Twitter followers on the biz account. So not a total loss.

How has your week been? Slow or chock-full? Read anything interesting?
