And its coming up to a packed weekend.
Saturday my day starts at 7am with car service and then cup of joe at DunnBros. While there I’ll be filling more about this weekends activities… OH!! And we have seen glimpses of SPRING!!! hope I didn’t jinx it now.
Sitting in Dunn Bro’s coffee shop enjoying a cup of mocha and listening to music and writing this along with listening to music and shortly I’ll be going to the movies with Les and watch 3 Days To Kill. Also looking at upcoming movies that i want to see.
I know I made a promise of writing something at least once a week. So i better keep the promise. This week has really been the norm. Nothing exciting at all, cold cold and cold. Everyone is so sick of this.
I just called to get my car into service. 15000 mile (24140 Km) service although it’s up to 22000 miles (35405 Km) already and we just took it out in August?
I guess I put a lot of miles on it.
I don’t get it. Some people just love it. They do day in and day out. Work from home. I think I’d go stir crazy if I would have to do it instead of going to the office. I have seldom felt so ineffective or so disconnected from the work I did.
Sure the commute was nice but I still feel like I was ineffective in my tasks. Oh well, hopefully that was the last of major snow days. – jinx
So… what should i write about today? Maybe the weather? It’s always entertaining. Yesterday +40F today the same.. Tomorrow 12″ of snow This just blows.
Lets see anything else? I’m ready for some short vacation time feeling slightly burned out but still hanging in there. Waiting for the spring/summer activities to start. Clay shooting is coming up and I can hardly wait for the season to start. Also this year I’ll be selling the boat.
I didn’t take it out nearly as many times as I would have wished and now it’s just a waste of space in the garage.
Barb my wonderful wife made me some chocolate hearts for valentines and declard she loves me more than bacon and chocolate :*. She is so awesome! I dont deserve her. Every day I praise my good fortune to have her and I try to be deserving of her.
Barb, if you read this, you really are my everything! Thank you for being in my life! I love you Barb!
I managed to successfully install LinuxMint16 on my old junky laptop. Initially it gave me a hard time as I installed it without wired internet.
The wireless card gave me hard time but i googled some some of the solutions on my iPhone and figured how to manually install the drivers and lib’s without further help. It took me like an hour from start to finish.
As much as I am non unix/linux user I am even less a Windows8 user. Thats what got replaced. What else on this Saturday? Robocop with Les and then get some kitty food.
This gave me vertigo at the end! Watch it in fullscreen on HD if you can!
Anything of significance happen last week? Not really not for me.
Work is … well work as usual. Temps are arctic as usual, cant even stick ones head out. These are the times one just endures. Spring cant be that far away, can it?
So what did I do? Beyond the normal I did do something useful.
Made a couple of hundred rounds of 9mm at my good friends house. Next week make some 5.56mm if the inclination hits.
This was posted on LiveLeak and it has not really being reported anywhere.
It has been one of the coldest and harshest winters in long time. And it’s hard to keep the spirits high knowing that the damn groundhog has predicted another six weeks of winter.
That is interesting, wonder how and why some folks back in the day even entertained the thought that a freaking rodent could predict anything. I doubt that is even aware of itself.
Here I am sitting in front of the fireplace at the local caribou shop trying to figure out how to get Barb’s car un-stuck from all the snow and ice. I put some salt under the wheels and will try again in a bit but I don’t have a whole lot of faith in that. I have to get it out before tomorrow morning.
What else? There is really nothing going on. I’m still almost as excited for the upcoming trip as I was before but time is going real slow. I think I’ll get excited once more when there is less than a year left, and even more once the plane tickets have been ordered.
Oh yeah… On the trip, if everyone joins in it would mean that we will be nine or ten! That is so cool.
