Going near Fiddy Cent's house today.
I think that house has been on the market for like six years. It used to be owned by Mike Tyson. Farmington Valley just hasn't been the same since he left.

'Morning, monkeys! How are you doing today yeah that's great.

Wife and I are still on the fence about the ski trip the end of this month but we moving closer to NO GO. We're just waiting to see what my ortho says on Tuesday. We rented a house and the owners said we can defer to next year, so thankfully canceling the trip won't cost us any money.

Morning.

I haven't even clocked into payroll yet and already I'm ready to go home. Oh well, at least work is looking fairly slow today.

All the bag throwers are taking pay cuts. It's like someone has ordered the mass killing of kittens around here. Today's going to be a good day to stay in my cave and avoid the ramp.

I'm envious that you can openly and truthfully call your colleagues bag throwers. I'd probably get written up for a veiled/incomprehensible insult if I did that. :D
have you ever witnessed luggage being handled gently?

never.

Whilst sitting on the ramp, waiting for the plane to fill, I was watching the luggage handlers work. 'Squeeb's description is quite accurate.

I've helped when they've been short handed on the ramp before. Honestly, you've only got to do that job for about 5 minutes before you figure out why stuff gets handled the way it does. If you over pack your bags, fvck you.

IAB: bummer man. Oh well, whatcha gonna do, right? Right.
Indeed. Ski trip officially being canceled. Major bummer. I realize people have bigger problems in the world, but that doesn't mean I have to like this. We can defer the house rental to next year and book another flight, so at least we're not out any money. Actually, we save a couple hundred bucks for not having to kennel the dogs.

Morning! Went skiing last night with hubby and son. The wee lad got his ego back for skiing (I'm the best skier ever! And next year I'll be 7, so I'll be even awesomer!) and we graduated from the bunny hill back to the blue hill where we ended last season. I had a case of the grumpies on the way up so Buffalo sent me on a couple runs by myself to shake it off (thanks honey!) and it worked of course :) So we had a blast. As we were leaving the mountain, we were all talking and asked Lucas, "So did you have fun??" and he didn't answer, turned around, he was OUT. His last sentence was like 30 seconds before that, it was awesome and hilarious. He did ok waking up this morning too, so yay! Happy Thursday. Nice wingdings!

Probably also a good day not to be checking a bag.

Damn... wasn't this your year to ski Colorado? No IAB beer-drinking with the CO Monkeys this year? :(

Its snowing niecely outside - fine dry powder - up to 14 inches expected in the flatlands. Since I am on vacation I can shovel snow evey hour and be the only house in the hood to have clear walks and driveway when eveyone else arrives home from work.

See Eric? Old can be fun!
