    'morning monkeys!

    Half day for me since my dad is down visiting, we're going to take the cameras out this afternoon and find a place to walk.

    I suspect this is going to be a two-cup morning, though. Can't wake up.

    now we have to deal with inferior gmt thread title format. Hell, those aren't even wingdings - it's an effin' semicolon for goodness sake

    So, I was working on a security project for a customer. We had a timeline, scope of work, everything.

    A third of the way into the project, the customer disappeared with no warning. Nobody at the site would return phone calls or emails. The occasional email I got back would be "sorry, we're changing priorities but we still want to do this, I'll get back to you." For 10 months.

    Recently, we started up again. Yesterday morning, I got an email asking for a status update, and by yesterday afternoon my phone/inbox/boss' inbox was blowing up with "where is our status update" messages.

    WTF?

    Breathing and working. Haley slept really well last night. We gave her all formula yesterday, so there was clearly something in what she ate that led to Monday night's chaos.
    Three more days at work until I'm off for a week to SoCal.

    Job interview this morning. I may actually want this job, quite nervous. Thing typically go better when I don't give a ****. Strangely I have no idea what I am interviewing for, bugged the CEO until he had his HR folks grant me an interview.

    Agree that the musical notes are superior to misused puntuation.

    If you have the right skills, sometimes you just need to show a willingness to work hard, and they will figure out something for you to do. Good luck.

    Glad you are getting it figured out. Who would have though that such a common food would be a problem?

    When I was in consulting, I thought, "man, clients are psycho". Once I was on the other side, I thought "man, we are psycho. but we have our reasons."

    Whoop whoop! Where are you going to ride? We're going night skiing tonight and with the little one on Sat, but Sun we'll be at Steven's with my girls shredding. If you're up there or at Snoqualmie, we should make some turns!

    Good morning! Mostly stoked because I get to ski tonight! Not stoked that I'm stuck at my desk and I have to pee realllllly bad right now :) you're welcome!

    We're visiting good friends that moved from CO about a year ago, and we'll be there through Sunday early evening. Unsure about exactly where we'll ski... our friends work tomorrow but are borrowing us a vehicle and Baker has me most interested as far as snow totals go, so we might try and get there tomorrow. Not sure what our exact plans are otherwise, but Crystal and/or Alpental have been kicked around. And I'll DEFINITELY be shredding Elysian at some point...

    Alpental is where it's at if you can get there on a weekday for SURE! We had a BLAST there last week! Chair 2 ftw!
    Baker & Crystal are also super fun though, and Baker will be the least crowded for sure. We were going to rent a cabin up there this weekend as my gf is coming out from Boise to shred, but we opted to stay at our cabin up by Steven's for free instead. Happy shredding!

    Ummmm. That's a LOT of flannel!!!! :rofl:

    Totally rough life! The cabin is about 45 from Stevens on a lake, and our house is 45 from Alpental/Snoqualmie (where we have our passes/I teach). Fly safe!

    Interview went reasonably well. Right off the bat got thrown in front of the owner. Really intense mofo, it was impossible to relax or get my rhythm but don't think I ****ed up. Other folks there hinted that he does his best to throw you off your game, in that light it might have gone well.

    Good luck with the interview. Throwing their big guns at you to start with means they took you seriously, at least. That's a positive thing.

    I am getting progressively lazier and lazier at work. (No patients are being harmed, mind you--I've haven't been reading clinical-side stuff since the third week of December.) Today I elected to leave at noon and not come back, and that was apparently ok with everyone.
