find the latest goings on of myself, Trevor Menagh.
Before I forget though, I would like to ask everyone out there reading
this to send me your birth dates. I don't know them all and I would
like to at least have them on my organizer.
I have also created an Amazon.com Wish List (taking after Mike Chu)
that can be found here:
amazon.com/exec/obidos/wishlist/151Y46HSSLPH0/. So you that
want to buy me something, but have NO idea the things I would like,
this is for you. (The stuff I want the most is at the bottom of the
list, like that Japanese-English dictionary)
Now, on with the report!
Signe and I are doing well. She is keeping busy with her projectionist
job (http://www.cameracinemas.com/), and that keeps us apart most of
the week, since I work in the daytime, and she works at night, but we
still find time to spend together during the weekends.
This weekend we just bought my tuxedo (http://www.garystuxshops.com/)
for the wedding. I am looking forward to wearing it, since I think that
it looks way cool.
We have also been spending time together watching Babylon 5
(dscga.com/lurk/lurker.html), my friend Matt Conner
(http://www.nnanime.com/nnstaff.html) leant us the entire series, and
that is fun to watch together.
Signe and I went down to LA for Thanksgiving to spend with Dad and
Debbie and everyone down there. We could only stay for one night,
because Signe had to work the next day, but it was a good visit. We
played cards and had a good dinner. It is always nice to visit with the
family during the holidays.
Work is going quite well lately. FastWriter (the word processor for the
Palm OS that I wrote,
http://www.iambic.com/english/palmos/fastwriter/default.html) is out in
stores now. I am currently working on the version 5.0 of our most
popular software title, Action Names DateBook
is keeping me busy, and it should be shipping soon. The beta is already
This was a fun month for anime related things. A lot of the No-Name
Anime staff (http://www.nnanime.com/nnstaff.html) took a two week
vacation in Japan to go shopping ^_^ and see the sites. They discovered
a new manga series called Azumanga Daioh
(http://www.mediaworks.co.jp/daioh/), a 4-panel series from the
character designer of Tenchi Muyo (http://www.tenchi.com/) and Battle
Athletes (http://www.miao.com/daiun/). It is a cute series about a
bunch of high school girls. I am currently translating the first book.
They also brought back the Read Or Die manga
(http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/Animation/ROD/) for me as well. We had the
No-Name (http://www.nnanime.com/) showing in the Almaden library this
month instead of the Santa Teresa library and the room was packed. Next
month is our big Christmas bash, so I am looking forward to that. The
FanimeCon 2002 (http://www.fanime.com/) work is going well. As some of
you know, I am the panel coordinator for the convention; I am the
person that makes sure all the panel discussions go off flawlessly.
Nothing has broken so far. I just finished cleaning up my computer
room, so you can walk around in it again. Yesterday Signe and I visited
the first Apple Store (http://store.apple.com/) and I saw the G4
Titanium laptop (http://www.apple.com/powerbook/) and fell in love.
That thing is WAY awesome.
Aside from reading various manga (_Read or Die_ and _Azumanga_) I am
also on the second book in Nancy Kress'
(http://www.sff.net/people/nankress/info.htm) Beggars trilogy, _Beggars
and Choosers_. I want to read _The Fellowship of the Rings_ next, since
I haven't read any of _The Lord of the Rings_
(http://www.lordoftherings.net/) yet and the movie is coming soon.
Well, that's about it for this month. I look forward to hearing from
you all. See you next month!
