    How is everybody today?

    Well now we have NO heat in the building. This place F'ing blows....
    I tried to mail some christmas cards this morning, there was about 20 people in line at the post office so I decided not to wait around.

    Well I'm excited for Christmas but I feel this is going to be a long week at work for some reason.

    Morning, Stosh! Had a pretty fabulous weekend. :D The company party was unbelievable. Great food, great company, great bar... and they handed out Christmas bonuses for everyone! I can't believe how fun it was. Everyone at work this morning is still excited about it... they are all bouncing off the walls. Finished my scrapbook for my little bro this weekend too, which was exciting! 13 hours Saturday, then finished it up Sunday. Looks pretty good I must say. Also exchanged a gift w/ bv this weekend. He got me a very pretty necklace. Have a good Monday!

    Crazy weekend. Went on a chilly 40 mile road ride on Saturday. Roads were nothing but ice, slush, salt and gravel. Good times.

    Had meetings all day yesterday about a possibly business venture. I'm excited about the possibily of busting my ass and making little to no money.

    Had an uncle die Saturday night from cancer. I only remember meeting him once in my life, really cool guy, I feel bad for his wife and kids. He had just retired a few months before getting sick, that seems to be a pattern in my family.

    hey stosh - the weekend was abbreviated, as sat was spent travelling back to the land of the yanks. for details of my trip, take a look here or here.

    yesterday i just hung around the house and played w/ the boys. cooked a great dinner (see B&F for details), ordered the christmas roast, and didn't do much else.

    hopefully today is the that the secret santa gift gets here. :think:

    Morning monkeys.

    As antimony said, did a gift exchange this weekend and scored the 7th season of the Simpsons! :love:

    The party was really fun, had a lot of drinks at the open bar and the food was delicious. Good times... I can't believe they go all out like that!

    Hello. An uneventful weekend....I spent most of it getting all our present wrapping done and did housework. It didn't mind the quiet weekend considering the CHAOS that will take place this upcoming weekend.

    Term ended last Thursday, so now I am off for a few weeks. Had a fairly eventful weekend. Met up with some friends on Friday and just hung out. Saturday I met my friend Ashley and Joanna and went and saw a girls hockey game. The girl that wants to date me is a hockey player. Sunday was more Christmas shopping and out again with Ashley to look for a fish. Got my sister a little game called 20 Questions. Creepy how much that little thing knows...

    Good morning. Had a nice weekend in Seneca Falls with Rob. Now he's on break and I'm back at work...ick. Hopefully the week will go fast.

    Thanks for the cd, Stosh! It was a nice surprise when I got home last night :) I'm still waiting for the secret santa and my elf hasn't said anything (but should have gotten the package last week) Strange.

    Good morning!

    Long weekend......well, it seemed like it anyway. Helped a friend move halfway across the state on Sat. morning. The company I work for has a big box truck they were willing to let me use, so I dropped it off for them to load on Fri evening, and picked it up around 6am Sat. My wife and I were also having a Christmas party later that evening, so I had to have that truck at the location and emptied out by at the latest, 2pm in order to make it back in time for the party. I pulled into the driveway at 5:30 and my poor wife was still up to her neck in decorations that she still hadn't been able to get put up. So we put it into overdrive and somehow managed to get it done before everyone started arriving at 7:30.

    The party was a great one. A lot of my riding buddies showed up, so I broke out the Tres Generations Tequila and we started doing shooters until it was gone. Completely polluted. Merry Christmas, tiny Tim.

    Stayed up and cleaned the house after everyone left at around 2:30 am. Washed the last dish and put the last garbage bag out at around 5:30 am---24 hours away from when I woke up the previous day! The wife was so impressed, she left me alone for the whole day Sunday while the dog and I watched football and recovered our aching heads......

    Squeezed another ~250mhz out of my computer this weekend with a second round of overclock, too... Total of 585mhz increase over stock speed.

    I'm such a hopeless geek :o:

    My brother and his wife just had a boy! Yes, it was unofficial before because they hadn't had it yet. Don't make me move this to the political forum. :mumble:

    Had a great weekend here.

    Fri nite was anniversery nite so MizN8 and I ate dinner at Copeland's. It's pretty good for a New Orleans style resturant.

    We didn't hit a lick Saturday... We had intentions of going out Sat nite but when the kids were all out roller skating we just stayed home and enjoyed playing around with out liquor stash.

    Sunday I took my daughter to see King Kong... that pretty much shot the whole day. I was a good movie however. A little slow to start but great later on.

    Looking forward to doing some night riding this week.

    Not only am I still using air cooling, I'm still using the stock heatsink/fan. The thing only runs a few degrees warmer than stock - not sure why the CPU runs so cool. Temperatures seem to be reading accurately, though, since they do normal curves during intense use, and the BIOS reads the same temperature as the motherboard monitor. I'm happy about it, though :D

    Ahh, yeah, I was worried that the temperatures would shoot up but they haven't so far... Thus far, it's just been a free 2.4ghz upgrade over the 1.8ghz chip :D

    Got a thread in the geek-- I mean, tech forum if anyone's interested in specifics.

    good morning Stosh.
    good morning Ridemonkey-ers.

    Friggin' cold here ... -1F this am, -15F wind chill. Sucks to be me.

    No riding this weekend (see above) but went to a fun Christmas party Sat. night and listened to 3 women talk smack and tell stories about another woman, only to turn 180 and be all hugs and kisses when she surprised them by showing up. Nice!! ;)

    Ate lots of homemade sweets at said party. Don't let anyone tell you that brownies and beer don't go together. They lie.

    I also figured out a cool variation of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas on my guitar.

    Got together with friends at a pizza joint to watch the Bears game last night. Cheap pitchers and $.25 wings.

    Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. My GOD it's cold.

    have a great day everyone.

    Good morning! Had a nice weekend. Friday night the hubby and I went to his company Christmas party and had fun. Saturday I decided to clean the house and took my sisters shopping (I can't believe they haven't finished yet). Sunday I spent the day relaxing and putting the nursery together, making my lists of things to do for the week and deciding which cookies I will be making this year. Other than that, nothing much going on...at school today and it's uneventful thus far so I hope it stays that way. ;)

    'Morning all. Not much to report since the arrival of my son. Seems like every waking hour is spent attending to his needs. Tiring to say the least. However, my wonderful wife took over Sunday morning and told me to go for a ride. :heart: I hooked up with a MORE/Bike Lane group ride for a good 3 hours around the local trails. Luckily it was cold enough and the ground was relatively solid. There was even snow still on the ground in a couple of spots making everyone laugh as we attempted to climb in it. Good stuff. :)

    Partied. Broke up with the girl. Partied. Shaved head. Packed stuff for upcomming move. Watched football. Changed up gears on the SS. Partied.

    It was rough weekend and I'm glad it's over.
