    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    Morning monkeys!

    Going near Fiddy Cent's house today. Got to look at a couple of houses nearby. "High impact" workout tonight, and I have been having "issues". I fear for the second degrees.

    Be safe out there.

    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

    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.

    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!

    Much like bikes, you can never have too many guitars, right?

    Yeah, we booked a place at Keystone. And I'm still on an extended beer break but that doesn't mean I don't eat or drink coffee.

    Truth. Although I've actually gotten rid of almost all my guitars over the years since I don't play much anymore.

    I've always wanted a semi-hollowbody, but never actually had one. I was at Guitar Center last night and really liked the feel/sound of this one, and it's a decent price. Might get it for myself as a b-day gift.

    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!
