newavi

Right... Wednesday eh... May 19...


Using my hand to show off my "TouchDown Buddha" (name props to fallingforward)... and that buddha came from landmark when he came back from the land of way-too-may-Thia-Fighters... :D

Yeah, so much for the no smiling... It seems I can't actually do it.

Lets see... some french guys are rebuilding my back yard... what started as "lets even out the ground where the garden and fix the grass..." became ... a complete rail-tie rim around the yard and a 6 square yards of earth carted in and spread about..." and next will be sod... gasp...

And... and a very burly dude is on my deck as I type... he showed up at like 7:50 ... to try and fix the problems with our deck... it's all (in theory) nice British Columbia Red Cedar but that freaking wood is seriously bowing and all the nailing the deck-builders did is sucking ass... so Dude is all over the deck fixing stuff... and blah blah blah... it's stuff we're getting the contractor to do before the warranty runs out...

wearing
~ black stripee ftls
~ beige p-z jeans
~ dk blue button up shirt... letterman day...
planning
~ um... adding a scrolling news window to the internal web site and a bunch of other stuff the boss man asked for before he split... :D
~ trying to fill out more of my "self appraisal"... gah!
~ on going to my Dads house after work and see how he's doing... he had another "stint" put in and had to spend the night in the hospital...
~ wednesday night... it's the season closer for West Wing tonight... and another new Enterprise... I really like that show... too bad they look like they'll can it soon.
wishing
~ that my buddy thomask gets better fast... I can hear you coughing from here...
~ to just send some good vibes to ladyfire about the VP.... very hard news.
~ to point out to icicle that to "become" a morning person... you really need to add children to the mix.
~ there was something I could say to be helpful for my friend laurel714
~ that my friend jmm2_29 enjoys all the giggling she's gonna do today.
~ for the strength of the goddess to find my friend pageeater... you can do it... and the client is transitory... the house is for many many years... just say'en.

Fun news? Yeah... got a call from my own personal Nazi Torture Chamber Master... aka My Dentist... and it seems that Dr. Mengela wants to put off my appointment to put the perma cap on the tooth (scheduled for this coming Tuesday) and schedule time instead to do a "little more work on that root"... as if maybe he's decided from some review of the xrays that maybe there's more root to take out... ????? that would explain some of the pain... but seriously... for all those folks that have had Root Canals and commented that I ought to not worry... they're easy beans etc... Please collectively jump in the nearest lake... hahahaa... UG@!#$%!@#@%$!@#. :D

I swear... I'm being punished for something... I'll take suggestions regarding just what I've done to deserve this...

Oh... and I got a hair cut... how old do I look? A co-worker just said I look like punk kid... hahahaha... (I'm 42... I'm forty-two!!!! I'm the official Douglas Adams Uber Gosh Number).

done.

::::::::::::::::::[end of day me]:::::::::::::::

long day... loads done... but mostly on the "self appraisal" thing the HR people want me to do.
It's really a pisser because I've not been properly appraised by a manager in like... 3 years...
Now it's somehow fallen to me to do it?
Yeah... well I keep marking my work "Excellent : Could not possible show greater improvement or professionalism" for EVERYFUCKINGTHING. :D

Send some good vibes out to laurel714... mmk. just 'cause...

Now it's time to go...
~ we'll see how the deck looks when I get home... but my papa's house comes first. :D

------------------------------------------

When I look into the sun
and then look away....

I'm lost to the path before me
but I never lose my way.

You are the light, we are the path
and our love will always draw me onward.


Life is funny sometimes... but living isn't always fun.
So... we invented friendship.
That always helps.

Later skaters..

...

holla. :D

Today was "pan-o-rama picture day" at the kids school...
Actually yesterday was, but it rained... so today was the day...
several hundred kids in a yard, packed up like a Where's Waldo page...
and some joker on the roof of the school is snapping away like mad with the pan-o camera. :D

We wont have a copy for ages...
However...

... Z was there and snapped a few while they waited for the pan-o moment. yeah... that's geo's hand... hahaha...

and for a random moment of fun-in-parenthood aka wow.

Edward, after a fun filled day playing outside, falling in gardens, and leaping tall buildings...

The back yard is basically done... but we're waiting till next week for sod...



And the deck dude did some good work today...

Tonight? knocked a big ol hole in my basement wall...
getting ready to rip that down and clear up that leak thing.
(guy-talk translator "getting ready to..." =  "not looking forward to, but know that I can't get out of, whatever project is pending... oh look, a peanut... ")

... and enjoyed West Wing. (Dick Danger... lol!)
