Genealogy Journal - 07/29/08

Another 50/50 day... see, I do have a life!

I was on the computer by 8 a.m. and read my email and blogs. I played with Cuil.com for awhile, and decided to post about it - see Is Cuil.com Genea-Cool? I spent some time posting jokes and a Padres update on Randy's Busy Life, and checked Facebook. While there, the desk and chair rolled a bit at 11:43 - the earthquake hit and I felt it - no damage. Miriam quickly IMed me on Facebook and we chatted for awhile. I played several Scramble games to catch up to my betters at it. Then I had lunch, watched the TV coverage, and posted about earthquakes in SoCal in Shake, Rattle and Roll. Earthquakes exude SoCalosity, don't they (thanks, Elizabeth, for the word)? We tend to think we're the only ones hit by them in the USA, which is really untrue.

After lunch, I posted More on FamilySearch Indexing and Images. I improved the CVGS October seminar flyer, then created the program agenda handout for the CVGS meeting on Wednesday, printed everything out, and went off to the post office box and the copy shop to make copies. I'm still on the "jury duty" hook and won't know until tonight if I have to go in on Wednesday - I arranged for our VP to be the MC if I can't do it, and will get the stuff to her if I can't do it on Wednesday. I was back at 3, checked email and blogs. Linda wanted the computer for email, so I went in to watch the news, read the paper, and take a nap.

We left at 5 p.m. for dinner at Black Angus, and at 6:30 headed to Coronado. We had ice cream at MooTime, then attended the play "Pretty Fire" at Lamb's Players' Theater. Astute readers will remember that we went to a play on Sunday night too - we are just so cultured! Linda slept through most of this one... We were home by 10, and I called to see if I have jury duty and I don't. Good. I checked email and blogs, and wrote this post. Will close down for the night.

Genealogy today was only 5.5 hours - 0.5 hour doing email, 0.5 hour reading blogs, 1.5 hours writing blog posts, 0.5 hour on Facebook, 2.5 hours on CVGS activities.
