I was back to refereeing soccer last weekend. Saturday, I worked four matches (all of under-14 boys) at a showcase tournament in Maryland Heights, Missouri. The four matches had teams from Minnesota, Illinois, Nebraska and Missouri, and each had their own challenges. Overall, they went well.
Sunday afternoon, I was interviewed online about my editing work, on the Blog Talk Radio program Autistic People, People First. The hosts interviewed me over the hour on my experiences working as a publications editor, and how my Asperger's syndrome has factored in my work. It went very well and I am very happy with this interview.

Sunday night, I worked one under-14 boys soccer game at St. Louis U. High in west St. Louis. It was a Midwest Regional League match involving two local teams, which was scoreless until one team scored the only goal late in the match.
Tuesday morning found me at a financial services firm in Creve Coeur for a Yellow tie networking event. I chatted with a few people there -- some I've known, others I met for the first time. One of the latter said she knew someone in PR that I should meet with and would get back to me on that matter. (She hasn't yet, as I write this.)
I was at the martial arts studio on Wednesday midday for taekwando. Afterward, the headmaster offered me to join up and start going twice a week, instead of once a week has I had. I agreed and will be doing so in the coming week.
Been making minor repairs on a model today, getting it ready to take to Kansas City, Missouri this Saturday for the IPMS West Central Missouri show, Model Fest. I'm looking forward to it; it's a neat event and it's also a great way to promote IPMS Gateway's Invitational in September.
