No Updates? No Worries

If you're still here expecting an update, you must either not know me and my job or you have no access to a calendar.

We're in June. Not only it's half Spring half Summer, but it's also time for the Annual Report at work. Yes, that time where all the important information for an important document always arrives three weeks late and only days before it actually goes in front of the board. It's the same for every organisation or corporation. At this point, I believe having information arriving late for graphic design or printing is part of the general definition of an annual report.

That said, we always make it on time anyway. It's just part of the show, just like the fireworks at the end of a Shakespeare piece... ok, that's off, but you get what I'm saying.

That's why you're not getting any updates recently. There will be one tomorrow with details of a miracle from the computer-gods. Then it's another blogging hiatus until I can a bit of free time.

In the mean time, I'm at the office with [PSP] Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker staring at me. I just bought it, but I'm too busy working. The word of the day is "Temptation".

Lately, I haven't done a lot of things. I've done a bit of Geocaching and I'm up to 180 stars in [Wii] Super Mario Galaxy 2 (which is probably the best Wii game so far on the market). I didn't have any time to work on XNA or any other personal projects I'd like to undertake. My sketchbook is getting a bit flooded with "TO DO" projects.

Yes, I am stuck at the office, but I'm in a great mood and I'm working at a descent pace. I don't feel like I'll have to rush to meet the printing deadline, but I know I can't take more than 5-10 minute breaks every hour (mentally healthy + rested = productive).

Check back again tomorrow for my little "computer miracle of the week" story.
