|Blow off cobwebs here<---
Woah, been a while since I've mulled the light fantastic.
Well what can I say, I said "Work sux" about as many different ways I could think of and then got bored with it.
I'm still around, not posting as much perhaps but hopefully with a bit better attitude and more of an idea of what's going on around/with me that does not involve work.
Work sux, 'nuff said.
I've just found Bookcrossing.com, a site where you register and give away books. Then others can come on the site and tell you what they think of said book, and where they gave it away too.
So am I back? I never left. I just had to get a new stick for the dead horse.

|32 hours in a truck
Well we went up to the corn roast for the family this weekend. Basic concept, small bonfire, cooking a variety of things out in the open. Great food, volleyball old folx & little kids playing around everyone having a good time.
We left friday at 8:00 pm after I had to spend a hellish EXTRA
hour on one customer trying to get the SOB on line with his product after he spent 20 minutes taking snippy free throw insults at me. Fucking asshat calls at 1858 as I was ramping up to leave at 1900. Nature of the game I know. Everything I try just cannot get this guy on line. Work order won't check in, services won't activate.
One of our supervisors was about to leave too, so I ruined his evening too. Lovely.
God, just thinking about what happened pisses me off all over again, his freaking whining about Gee I hope I didn't make a mistake, waaah I didn't know I'd have so many service problems, eeeeehhh my cooter hurts, can't I speak to someone who knows what they're doing, why do I have to call all the stupid people. The whole time I'm trying to remember the start up procedures for this stuff, as it is my FIRST
day on this product, he's popping me with a barrage of insults; personal and corporate, and billing questions. Like some sort of pavlovian grass drills.
Finally got it up to one of the product experts and a tech in dispatch and left them with the ball. Yeah, makes me a bastard of the first water, I know. Still they didn't have to deal with that thing personally
like I did.
The drive up was pretty good, 77 to 19 to 79 to 80 to 66 to Lewis Run. Rain on and off on the way up, arriving at around 0630. I immediately went to sleep and woke up arond noon, showered and we went to the cook out.
Hot dogs on a stick, turkey cooked in a trash can, corn soaked in water shoved into ashes of a hot fire and roasted for 15-20 minutes, slathered in butter, a hint of salt, and viola, heaven on a cob. Well worth the trip. I took over 90 pix, including the trip back, some action shots of the ol' lady sawing wood. Our team retired with a string of 100% vollyball victories, parades, medals, NEXT!
Planning some caches for next weekend with an ex boss, another weekend with a former coworker, and generally wondering what I can do to try to get out of the job that will make me insane or kill someone. I swear to god, this job is killing me inside. I have two days of life, and five days of waiting.
God damn, what did I do wrong

|Stolen from Seattleforge cause I have to post SOMETHING
Dear President Bush,
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have learned a great deal from you and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them:
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it crates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that, even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there "degrees" of abomination?
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his life by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev. 24:10-16)? Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws (Lev. 20:14)?
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
Your adoring fan,

The house is SOLD! Gone outta my life! No more mowing for me!
Too bad the car died the day before the papers were signed. I was looking forward to spending the whole months house payment on something like... ME!
Stoopid car. Stooopid mechanics.

|TV sees itself:
"This is how television works. It's a competitive business. There's nothing new about it."
-Fox Entertainment chief Gail Berman
That's not news.
Neither have I had any lately. We've just added 5 states to our caching belts, only a token hit ot two in each, not what you could call a glorious safari, but got the job done.
That job getting us out of the house listening to books on CD and seeing farther from a horizon than I've ever seen before, or so it seemed. I'm sure the times I've been on the sea shore I've seen just as far or farther, but when it's in Missouri, Illinois, or Indiana- having things on the horizon give it a emphasis that punches you in the jaw with the scale.
Or at least it does me. I'm weird though. Ask around.
Progress on selling La casa sein pantalones is sloooooowwww but moving nontheless. With luck July will be the last time I mow for a Loooooooooooonnnnngggg time.
Work in the call center, when the lines heat up, the phone heats up. Mind dulling yelling all day long, one day blending into the next, followed by nights of much beer & dungeon crawling thanks to that video crack called Dungeon Siege: Legend of Aranna.
Hmmmmm Yes a dragon... Yesss slide right into the vein, ohhhh yessssssssssssss...
Then spend the next half hour getting the mouse untied from around my arm.
That's all there is for now, more soon, love you long time. Current Mood: Beeeeep

|Cause & Effect
"If a fourth season does go ahead, Rick Berman said to expect numerous three- or four-episode story arcs, instead of one major storyline as was seen in the third season. Berman and fellow producer Brannon Braga are expected to be less involved with the show on a day-to-day basis, as they begin work on other projects at Paramount.
Boldly Stolen from IGN.com Insider
Please dear jeesus strike messers Rick "I can fuck that up" Berman & Brannon "Can't fuck down" Braga dead from the Paramount lots, puuuuhhhleaze!
Ok Time travel is a convienent writers hack tool for SF. Hyperspace, warp travel, what have you, superluminal forms of transport will have to use tremendous energy levels that may indeed play merry hob with temporality.
Just don't use it to solve a conflict in a story ok? No more than "...And then Johnny woke up! Starfleet was fine, Hoshi was fine, and everyone lived happily ever after, except for Reed who found he was gay."
God it's sooo disgusting, I think the only thing that can make me watch enterprise ever again is more skin for Hoshi.
Even then, I'll prolly fast forward a lot.
Please someone, put some SF on TV, anyone? So far Stargate has been picking up the slack, but they have just spun off, so god only knows what can happen there.
Welp, I guess there's always Freefall
Hey if Paramount's lawyers see this, can you pass the word: More skin Hoshi, less Chronatons! Thanks! Current Mood: bitchy

|The Writing on the can
Ink seems to do OK on the matte brown. I'm going up to walmart to get some matte OD & see how the stamp ink goes then.
Since the ink I have in the stamp pad is not specifically water proof I'm going to test some letters with a clear lacque overcoat and the others without it. Fill the box with rocks & put it in the woods for a few days, then hose it off a few times.
I wish I was born able to write clearly... Stupid dyslexia.

Just put out another cache, GCJKQ7 Cathy's Desk by Cat'N'Geo
. I think it's a nice cache, about a half a mile walk through some nice terrain, had us puffing a bit but not much. The trail near the cache is actually a bike trail so if you're in shape, pump up the tires & head on down.
Renissance park has lots of miles of bike trails, soccer, baseball, tennis & even a sandpit for beach volleyball.
Which has caused some people to drive into a lamppost...
That puts 4 caches in these parks. More to come!
