The Baron is Away

the Baron on a good dayI’m sure he must have announced it at some point, but if not, I’ll tell you now: my better half is employed. A real job, doing the same geeky kinds of things he’s always done, but this time he gets to telecommute. Occasionally this involves some travel, and that’s what he’s doing now.

The future Baron did guard duty last night to be sure his dad would be up at 3:00 am to catch his flight. It was tough duty: watching Buffy DVDs until the wee hours isn’t for the faint-hearted.

By Friday the B should be back in this chair, churning out posts in between bouts of java scripting (no, I don't know what that is and I don't want to). In the meantime, ‘tis I, limping from coal bin to hearth to keep the home fires burning at Gates. If the light and warmth emanating from here seems a bit dim…well, that’s why.

Meanwhile, a celebration is in order: thanks to everyone for their fervent wishes, prayers, and donations. It worked! The Baron has always wanted a job telecommuting, and now his dream is a reality.

Also, he has a great boss…well, two of them if you count me.

BtVS
is the greatest TV show ever.

No, Firef.ly is the best ever. Buffy was just a warm-up.

XY said...

Though I don't agree I won't argue about it since both Firefly and Angel are great too. Joss Whedon knows his stuff.

Archonix said...

Aye, that he does.
