Mornin.

Been up since 330, cause little doggo woke me up and I couldnt get back to sleep. What can you do.

Driveway has been shoveled, so now I shall retreat to have some tea, cereal, and prepare for the interview tomorrow for a job that I will probably turn down if i were to get offered the position. Mayhaps this is an exercise in futility.

Gale force winds again, plenty of old snow on the ground and roof, still need to replace a broken chimney cap before Thursday's inbound snow.

Working 7-4. Did not make an early run to the Japanese bakery for kare pan despite this!









(This is because the bakery is closed on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesdays of the month, of course. Wife and kids have eaten all the kare pan at home. I think I ate 1 of the 9!)

I Black Friday / Cyber Monday splurged, then spent the night playing with my new toy.
Now I need to get up for a phone call about a multimillion dollar construction overrun issue.

Took the dogs for a walk, and ran into someone shoveling their driveway who said he (who was black) trusts dogs more than some black people cause some black people dont know they came from slaves. Still have no idea WTF that means, and I've been pondering it for an hour now.

I have no idea where I am
Was going to go to the studio to work on someone’s ring, but they left me an angry text as to why they don’t have it yet. They are not even in town until next week. Aghhhhh!!!

Imma go wander in the woods for a while. Maybe I’ll go back to work or just stay out there. Could go either way.

I am back in my shit hole of a cubicle after a long weekend in Florida. I ran the Space Coast Marathon in 3:18 Sunday and it was pure friggin misery. 78 humid degrees is nice for walking around or biking, but awful for running a marathon. It needs to be 30 degrees cooler, which it was in Orlando this morning. Fucking figures. I was about 10 minutes slower than my goal, which really isn't bad for a tough day, and any disappointment I felt in my finishing time was trumped by finishing 24/926 overall, and 3/56 in my age group. I've won a lot of awards for running, but this was the first time I got one for a marathon, and that's the highest up I've finished in one. They are hard to earn. The plaque is standard 8x10 size. The finisher's medal is just gloriously enormous.

Third Place Male would make for a fine custom title for you.

Jesus fuck. I have an Office 365 Home subscription; wants renewal, but credit card on record is gone. Try to change payment method, and their site barfs with an error message. Called their customer service number, they extended subscription for a month, but site still barfs if I try to delete old card record and add another.
 
Aaand our JetBlue flight home is 3 1/2 hrs delayed so instead of getting home by 10pm, it will be in early morning hours tomorrow. I will have to shovel a bunch of white shit to make it to work, too. FML. :dead:
Jet Blue has cost me a lot of waiting.to.get.home time which is part of why I drove down to SC and back. Issue seems to be missed connections at Kennedy due to weather.

Was supposed to have a phone interview today at 4:00...(took about 5 emails to nail it down), they never called (yes, they were supposed to call me), and so far have ghosted...but I saved $500 on my bike, so I win today!

Another round of old switch replacements with hand me down stuff and semi-tidying up the cabinet in the process. It ain't perfect, but the cabinet itself sucks and Bells stuff at the bottom makes me want to kick them in the groin.

Before...


After...

Yes the second switch is upside down. That's what you get when trying to deal with a fuckin lopsided 24 port switch. Borked. Hopefully the packets dont fall out on their way down the pipe!

beer time.
