The summer heat keeps up the intensity. It does make getting simple things done more difficult. Nothing quite like sweating buckets every time you try to do anything outside. Happily, GeekTankRadio.com and the show involve being inside an air conditioned recording studio. The show keeps rolling right along. More and more people discover our brand of silliness each week. One day we may be fabulous enough to be media guests at something major like Comic Con in Dan Diego or DragonCon in Atlanta. One can dream.
The Fix It Up Show continues to overflow its cup every week. The number of fans tuning in every Saturday morning is growing exponentially. The fun of doing a live call-in show is the fact that you have no idea what is going to happen when you put that caller on the air. Happily, the callers are learning to call in early and wait in the holding queue. Don’t wait until the last 7 minutes of the show to call in with the 7 part question. Three of four callers sitting in the queue right out of the gate makes the show move so much faster. I do like the suggestions that we up the show to two hours. Yes, I am sure we have more than enough content for two hours. Personally, I would just really love it if the show started an hour later. I am just not a great morning person. If you know me, that ain’t a news flash.
I am happy to have my computers all back up and working. The mundane world more or less went super nova over the last 6 weeks leaving very little opportunity for my quality time at The Desk of Endless Tasks. A couple of weeks ago, I was attempting to sneak in a quick hour or two when my trusty monitor of several years reached the end of its tenure on my desk. The poor thing simply gave out. No worries I think, next time I have some time I will just swap it out for my back up monitor. A few days later and the swap is made only to have the back up work fine for about 30 minutes before it made a high-pitched whine and died. I finally have a new monitor purchased and in place. It is nice to feel back to together and at one with the Desk.
Just a personal reminder to forgive minor mistakes in your life and find joy in the things you do. You just don’t know when the living time will end for you or those around you. While I have lost a few close friends and family this year, I have also lost a lot of people who impact your life from the edges. People and their families that may not deal with you directly , but their presence is felt everyday. Find a way to keep each and every day just a bit sweeter and richer.
