And, because he’s Derek, he had declared today Mustache Day. So, if you are so inclined, draw one on if you don’t already have one and wear it proud. My girls have decided to do it.
I am so freaking far behind in my blog reading that I don’t know if I’ll ever crawl out from my unread pile. Please forgive my neglect. I swear I will be back to read you….when I find some time in the next few days.
I had a total “back in my day” geek moment the other day at work. I walked by the desktop team configuring the PCs for the new office. While she is dropping down images on all of the hard drives, I couldn’t help but remember back when I started in IT doing desktop support. I was the one who did all of the PC configurations. In the first two years, the company doubled in size – from 400 to 800, and I touched everyone of those 400 PCs and then some. The first year was pre-Windows 95 which meant setting IRQs on the devices – specifically the network card so it wouldn’t conflict with the CD drives. I can still recall all of the DOS commands for copying the Windows 3.1 and 3.11 for Workgroups configurations. God I feel old.
And speaking of work, the executive I manage the project for is looking to get himself fired for an HR issue. First he compared the process we were going to with the project as being like God delivering the tablets with the 10 commandments to Moses. Then the other day, he asked if he could buy handcuffs as he wanted them to demonstrate a point – that he could go to jail if regulations are not followed. After someone confirmed they could be purchased, he decided to clarify by adding “I’m not talking the fuzzy kind you can get at those special shops”.
I have decided I am done following Facebook for a while. I’m sick of the political debate about the health care bill. The biggest problem is that people don’t understand it. I get that. But instead of making assumptions, can we all just wait and see what we find out. I mean, Obama signed it into law Tuesday. And while I would love to believe that everyone knew what it would mean beforehand, no one ever truly does. Sorry, that’s the cynic talking. I would love to believe everyone knew exact details, but I doubt it.
My yard is ready for summer now. I need to now decide what I’m planting in my raised beds. I have two more this year. Our goal of slowly eliminating the yard is being realized. Oh, and the rain barrels are full too. So I’ll have water for the gardens as well. I was happy to see they worked so well.
Garbanzo declared the other night that he wants to find someone with a sexy accent to have sex with. Anyone who can do a good sexy accent, please let me know. I think it will be hard to figure out on AFF. And going thru a continual round of of meeting people isn’t as fun as it sounds.
Speaking of swinging, my playdate with SG is likely canceled this week. A weird twist of fate created this situation. Oh well, it happens. We both agreed that we needed some time together soon. Hopefully we can reschedule soon.
Happy Hump Day!
