I’ve just done about a day’s worth of work in an hour or two, so I have now earned the right (in my own mind) to waste time time writing a post for my blog. Unfortunately, I have nothing to say. Fortunately, I never have anything to say, and it never stops me from writing something, so we’re on well-trod ground here.

I have really good news that I would like to share about Andrea’s writing career. Unfortunately, she made me promise not to tell anyone, so I guess you’ll have to wait for a while. But I will say this: I have every confidence that she will be publishing a novel, soon, which will be very popular, and will make me the husband of an author. (Well, yes, I realize that I’m already an author. But she’ll be the author of a novel, while I’ll be the author of a computer book. It’s different.) I can say this much because I’ve always been confident of this, so any good news that she may or may not have received doesn’t really have an impact on that.

I’ve been fighting off a cold, off and on, since about December or so. But this is the weird part: I haven’t succumbed to it yet! I have a very weak immune system, so normally all I have to do is think about getting a cold, and I’m infected. But, for some reason, I’ve been fighting this one off. I get up some mornings, feeling like it’s going to come on, and I take come vitamin C, and then I feel better. This happens for a couple of days, and then it stops altogether. Then a couple of weeks later, it happens again.

I’m very much enjoying my new Smartphone. I’ve already written an application for it—that does absolutely nothing useful—just because I wanted to see how hard it would be. As it turns out, very hard, because there are some new security features built into the Smartphone OS. However, if I’m writing an application for myself, I can cheat, and not bother with all of that security stuff—I just get prompted by the phone sometimes, when I open the app, that it’s not secure, and I say “so what? open it anyway.” (My phone and I already have a pretty good relationship, so I can talk like that to it, and it knows I’m just kidding.) So, in that light, if you’re willing to ignore the security stuff, it’s actually very easy to write an application for the Smartphone.

And that’s about it. Hopefully in the near future I’ll get excited about blogging again, and then I’ll start posting more regularly. Or hopefully not, depending on your perspective.

Aww that's so cool that I'm gonna know two authors. I'm happy for her, she kicks butt.
