    Here. Haley had some kind of sleep walking terror last night. She walked out into the hallway crying and talking jibberish about how hungry she was, while going pee in her pj's. After getting her cleaned up, which was difficult because she was acting half-asleep, she just rolled her eyes back and went to sleep. She watched Mulan with her friends during Sunday Funday and came up talking about how scary it was, so I think she had a nightmare that she never actually woke up from. Seriously weird.

    Hopefully today is going to be a slow day. Too tired to work seriously...

    our kids would do that occasionally. usually it's b/c they didn't pee before they went to bed.

    When I was a youngster I would sleep under the covers and not get enough oxygen. The low O2 would send me into crazy night terrors and I would wake up outside in the driveway. Was very happy to figure out what that was all about.

    I know the peeing was because of that. We had the second night of sleep over, so she was super amped and sidetracked before bed time. The terror thing was weird and a first, but two full days of 100% on with friends makes sense of being fully blown out.

    When I was in the CNC machine game we had a bunch of stuff in the Kokomo transmission plant. The stories that came out of that place were terrifying. They found some pretty creative ways to break machines.

    Been out of the loop and have no idea what you are talking about. Having problems at the new job with the old job providing the wrong job title?

    I was on the other side of one of these this morning.

    We know you had a choice in airlines, and you chose poorly.

    More like: dear diary, today I drilled a hole into a servo motor and filled it with oil, it stopped working after that. I will try to replace it under warranty.

    More like "same title" which isn't allowed in his area due to non-compete type clause.

    <edit> director of custodial service management would have been moar better.

    Issue is a bunch of thunderstorm activity around NYC. I suspect that there's no way I'll manage a connecting flight to BTV, so may need to reschedule.

    Hello all. I rode my bike in to work. Various grievances that I have stem from that:

    - drivers not paying attention and drifting over into the bike lane
    - high school girl who sprinted to pass me then went 5% slower than I would have gone (although she amusingly did a great rendition of "side eye girl" when I told her that her rear tire needed air when her path split from mine)
    - lots of work since the person on over the weekend apparently slacked

    I think that's about it. Side eye girl meme, for your reference:

    Here.

    Cold today. Spent the greater part of yesterday in the back yard setting up the furniture and then sat for 4 hours in the sun learning Japanese...

    Today is decidedly the day to end the hibernation drinking and move onto the "Get in shape" train...

    i had been doing pretty good at fending off hibernation drinking with winter activities (climbing, trainer, outdoor riding when weather allowed), but then unfortunately i was unexpectedly shifted into car accident aftermath drinking and my activities fell to the wayside.

    You need to visit a doctor and get a prescription for MOAR riding. Not only healthy for the body, but for the mind.

    I found one that'll fit my truck really well yesterday on CL. Went to look at it this morning, negotiated nearly a grand off asking, I now own a truck camper. Good luck in your search, with that size of truck you have a lot more options methinks.

    I also occasionally do that, and it's also because I didn't pee before bed.

    Progress is slow but there. Our son went back to daycare for the first time since his concussion was confirmed and he had a great time and no issues (although he was only in for a half day). Kids are going back for a follow-up tomorrow, we're hopeful he'll be cleared to go back full time. My wife's progress has been slow with him home (she can't rest as much), but we did finally get our new car last week and she is comfortable driving herself short distances, so she can get herself to doctors appointments now.

    Understandable. Hope they are on the road to recovery. I've been busy, so I missed the update if there was one posted.

    I was doing good till we un-moved, then beers with buddies happened and off to the races....

    New house backs onto a bike path though, and also is short access to my old roadie stomping grounds!! Probably start thte bike commute to work in 2 to 4 more weeks, once winter ends...

    Afternoon Monkies! No trauma or drama here. I spent the weekend unboxing samples products to photograph and setting image profiles for them. I produced 12 images X 32 proucts in 6 hours. Me likey automation. :) In teh early days of the interwebs that would have been a solid week. I would be even faster if I was able to center asemetrical items for 360s which is where the market is headed. Ima need self centering lasers next.

    Also, no dildos. Yet.
