Current Music: Bernstein - STRIPES

To those of you who helped, the money has been returned. Thank you so much. I wanted to include a note in the mailing, but alas, my wife moves swiftly and efficiently. Please accept this mention as representative of my sincerity.

Recharged the iPod last night, and refreshed the scores on it. I put it on around 0800 and don't take it off until drax0r arrives, usually between 1100-1300. I pulled it off yesterday for a bit and it was too...noisy in the cubical area. I like my scores. The keep me focused.

I did drive to work again with the windows down, this time listening to Elmer Bernstein's Stripes. It was sixty-one degrees this morning, and cold enough for long sleeves. Perfect. My son snapped this picture this morning on his way to school. yes, that's his finger in the field of view:




I ran out of the site entrance too quickly yesterday and bumped the road with the front frame of the vehicle. The ABS light came on. I took it in this morning and walked from the dealership to the plant. I made it in 20 minutes this time. I'm getting good exercise every time something happens to this car. As it turns out, the right rear ABS sensor needs to be replaced. They'll take care of that Friday, the soonest they can get the part. Captain Janeway took me to the dealership in the Delta Flyer to save me from walking. Captain Janeway rocks!

I've been watching Season One of Criminal Minds in the evenings with my wife. Very enjoyable.

It's another gorgeous day.

And please excuse the second posting for the day; I'm going to start a vehicle log.

Its good to be settled. I like routine. I'm getting a new one established. Its the exact opposite of drax0r who hates routine and embraces chaos. I have to vary my responses to him, my mannerisms and characteristics around him to keep him on edge, else he quickly gets bored. Here lately I've been sleeping from 2130-0630. Its bliss. EMBRACE ROUTINE!

Thanks again.

Excellent on the house. You know what is cool about the the entire house, friends, money thing. You feel good because you know people care. Your friends feel good about helping you. You feel even better giving the money back. And they feel great because they get back some money the considered gone. The entire process didn't affect anybody's wealth, but you are all better for the exchange. See what a little love and charity can do! I found out I have a year to "buy my new son" before interest incurs, so if you are tempted to move and create stress for yourself, I'll be able to help this time. ;)

I like the car. You look as if you like the car too. I enjoy my car and my drive to work, and have a post coming about it in the near future.

Long sleeved shirt. Goodness, I've been waking up in 40 degree weather, and haven't thought about the long sleeves yet. We get used to our locales weather I guess.

Thanks dude. I'm torn between wishing I had a wee-bit longer drive, and loving my 10-15 minute "commute." I look forward to your post!

NO MORE STRESS! But thanks ;)

This is the happiest I think I've seen you. You look like a Russian in this photo.

I beg your pardon? I spent a large portion of my life combating Communism. I'm sorry, but you're not qualified to carry my briefcase where this is concerned.

Get back to your conservative radio program.

You look like a shady Russian, you talk like a shady Russian ergo you must be a shady Russian.
