Good Morning Monkeys, we are one day closer to humpday and the conclusion to that crazy lady on trading spouses.

I was reminded that I have 24 days left until the baby’s due date. I’m getting a little nervous.

What’s on everyone's plate for today?

Question of the day: What is everyone's favorite Starbucks drink?


I like their coffee, house blend mild.

A fun day indeed, I'm going to the doc to get the knee checked out from Saturday's ride and sitting in line to get the truck emission tested with a triple venti non-fat latte.

I guess that means you hurt your knee, hope everything is ok. Hurting you knee is a kick in the :nuts: they just ever seen to heal the same and you always are scared you will hurt it again.

Going to go see if there is an open time slot to interview for GE since our Career Development Center was kind enough not to let me know that you had to turn your resume in early in order to get a time slot. They said there are some still open, so keep your fingers crossed on my behalf.

Morning y'all. Same crap here. It is beautiful outside and I am stuck in a cement cube. No fav Starbucks drink but my favorite coffee is a nice Kona blend.

Today is day 16 without Power here at work. I am SO over dragging a generator outside every AM to fire up all the computer equipment. Its also nice that the AC doesnt fire up at night so when I get to work it is a nice balmy 80-85 degrees in the office. Not sweltering, but just warm enough to make sitting at your desk for more then 20 minutes at a time uncomfortable and smelly.

hey monkeys - great night last night. hit the gym @ work, then the wife picked me up and we went into boston. grabbed a nice southwestern-influenced meal @ Masa, then went to the Roxy to see Super Furry Animals. awesome show. very entertaining, those welsh guys. funny, great sound, great songs; a bit of a mish-mash of styles from all over the place. you can pick out hints of the beach boys, techno, beatles, even marvin gaye ("juxtaposed"). plus they played "Ice Hockey Hair", a great seldom-heard EP track from '96. was not expecting that at all. and when's the last time you've seen a band who used the act of chewing celery as a percussion instrument?

definitely check 'em out if they are in yr burg.

I'm not super worried about the drops & stunts. It's the 20' jumps I can see myself getting in trouble. Terrible at judging the speed req'd for that stuff. At least for saftey's sake they are tables. Crap..

Good Morning!

I don't like coffee and have never been in a Starbuck's Coffee Shop---ever. Does that make me a freak? I hope not. Just naturally wired from the moment I wake up.

Not a lot to report so far this week........one of our contractors called yesterday to say that they were missing three roof trusses in the shipment we sent to them last week. Although all my records show that they were made, under the insistence of the big-boss, we made 'em again. This contractor has a pretty chaotic job site with many houses going at once, so it's pretty likely that they just got lost in the mix is what I told the big-boss in my defense..........turns out that I was right---they ended up finding the three trusses. The Hispanic framers on their crew got some things confused and put them up on the wrong house. So, after all that hand-wringing and some testy accusations thrown around, I came out looking like I knew what I was doing. Yea for me!

so yeah, yesterday the landscaper we hired started work on pruning all our trees and shrubs. Man, he hacked the HELL out of them and they look great now. He cut them way down and shaped them. It really makes a huge difference in the appearance on the yard. Man, we should have hired this guy sooner. What he did in a day probably would have taken me a week of full time attention.

Morning! Just sitting here at home waiting for the plumber to get here and do the annual furnace cleaning/PM. Not much on the plate for today. Gotta take my daughter to pre-school around noon and pick her up at 3pm. I'm hoping between, the UPS man will drop off my new chainring and I can make it to the LBS to finish my new build. I have a club meeting this evening which means (as you all know by now) that I will be drinking beers tonight! :thumb:
