My Friday

Friday was last day of work at two jobs. At Polaris, I arrived significantly early for the first time ever, walking in at 6:45. Maura, my replacement (I’m sorry for her already), was late for the first time in a long time. The result was that I had a chance to eat an eggs benedict graciously made by our morning sous chef, Jennifer. Maura arrived, and I began showing her what I did – the whole morning routine, the things Michael tends to look for, my general philosophy about how to please boss and coworkers, and so on. The day was pretty busy during lunch, but with Maura and Patrick (hosting, but also a part time SA) there, I got to slack off pretty well. After a good family meal, Joey made me a burger to cap the day off. I then went to the office and then home, then to blockbuster from 5-9. I was on till the entire time, so it went quickly. During my 15 minute break, I went to Target, browsed, and found that Linkin Park had released another album, Live in Texas. I then went home and revelled in the feeling of freedom while contemplating the feeling of insecurity that comes with being unemployeed, while watching the DVD of Linkin Park live in Texas (quite good), and working on replacing the wing on my plane.

Screwed up sleep cycle

I now sleep from about 5-10 pm, then from 5-6 am… not very good, but it will all be over soon. Maybe, Scott says, we won’t be going as far as Florida. Whatever, dood.

More photos and my life

I left my house this morning to find Falling Snow. Looking toward My Snowy Truck, I realized that this snow was for real. I scraped the snow off the windshild with a piece of cardboard, jumped in, and headed out. Instead of my normal route, I took the less-scary-during-snowstorms-route which isn’t as steep or curvaceous. This caused a delay (as did the other cars traveling carefully through the snow), so by the time I made it to I-90 I was already Waiting in Traffic. Normally, I get to I-90 just before the metering turns on. I made it to work 15 minutes late, which was surpirsingly early actually considering. Michael didn’t say anything, although I think he wanted to. Its good that he didn’t because I had pictures.

At work today, there was a table of 13 ladies that all came wearing red hats to celebrate one of the ladies’ 60th birthday parties. They reminded me of the logo of Redhat Linux, because I am a nerd. They left This Mess, that I quickly transferred onto this tray. I then carried that tray to the dishpit (which I just noticed is remarkably similar to “dipshit” – interesting), which led to This Reaction from Jessi.

Beautiful Racks


“Beautiful Racks” – the unused glass racks after being sorted by yours truly. I’ll take a picture at the end of the week after they have been dealt with by everyone else to proove why the Bellevue Club should do anything they can to keep me around :-p.

Its a photo-Blog now


On my way out to my truck this morning, I snapped this picture of my truck with the rain reflecting the camera’s extremely bright flash (as Dan will attest to).

Overdue – Pictures of my Wireless Setup

The binder supported by thread and duct tape with the 18 dB antenna pointed at my neighbor’s house. The WET-11 is in the corner, cover off and directly connected to the pigtail instead of having the RP-SMA go-between.

The string supporting the binder is tied to a drawer in my Brother’s bedroom. Blackbrick, my old laptop (P90) is on the floor, as possible future WET-11 replacement. The borken RP-SMA pigtail is in the picture somewhere, as is my brother’s old LaCie external CD-RW drive.
