Today’s Holidailies prompt is: “It’s the first day of Holidailies, so introduce yourself.”
Hi, there. Some of you may remember me from the previous year. I used to have a livejournal with the username ‘jetblack’ and I decided I would give this another try to see if I could make it all the way to 31 (instead of making it to 8 and then losing steam). It’s hard to post every day, you know? But I feel that I can give this another go in 2007 and see if I can have a really Happy New Year by celebrating with the rest of my fellow Holidailies bloggers!
I’m thirty-one (sob!) and I live in the best state in the Union: California! It may get a little cold in December, but it’s pretty much summer-like year ’round. Though, we could use a little more rain this year, for sure. Anyway, I live with my beautiful wife, Julia, and I work for an application continuity appliance manufacturer as a technical support engineer. For the most part, this means I’m on call once every four weeks, and have to give up massive amounts of sleep in order to do my job.
I love to write, and I just won my third NaNoWriMo in a row. I love music. I love watching television and movies. I love reading books. I have an obvious West Wing addiction that I can’t seem to shake no matter how hard I try (see the quotations of the moment within the left column). I love baseball, football, basketball, and hockey. Most of all, I love meeting new people and making new friends, which makes the Internet just that much of an ideal place to be.
I hope to read more from everyone and I’m looking forward to an awesome December!
