This will be short!

This weekend was a blast, but boy am I sleepy. From fireworks to learning
how to waterski, I made this weekend quite productive! I finished testing
my new gear and hope to see some stellar results in the next couple of
days. I am still trying to figure out some of the procedures with this
new lab!

At any rate, my eyes are killing me and its time to sleep. More later…

Welp, we are off to the lake for Lakefest this weekend! We like to have
our boating fun before the Fourth crowds. Much safer that way!

This week has been interesting. Finalized a new development lab, chose an
album manufacturer and revised the Catchlights price list. I hope to
meet with my first bride in a couple of weeks! Meanwhile, if you are

At that note, I hope everyone has a nice weekend and I’ll blog from the

Another Monday

What a day! A day of birthdays and installs. I certainly hope someone
gets drunk…

Still on an install right now. Thankfully the hard stuff is done and we
are just on the cleanup crew right now. Its still a whip to be here
instead of beering it tho.

This weekend I got to drive the tractor again. WHEE! The grass was VERY
long and it took me a bit longer than it should have, but the lawn was
done and just in time for me to clean up and get to my haircut
appointment! Then we hung out with the niece and visited my parents.
Yesterday we roasted outside at the beach club and had sushi for dinner.

So I guess I’ll run away for now. I’ve got too much work to do and its
killing me.

Welp, the higher poker beings were not in my pocket last night. Dumb ol’
Darin was a big winner tho! I did manage to stretch my cash out the whole
night, but when we counted out there was only $0.75 in front of me.

The launchers are built for Lakefest! Thats great news! Its coming up
and I’m damn excited. This one is going to be the best yet. I’m hoping
we have just as good weather!

Don’t you love ebay bidders that mislead sellers? After talking to
manufacturers of both camera and flash, I found a guy on ebay who was
selling something that was completely incompatible with my camera setup.
Gotta love that captialistic spirit! I guess if people are dumb enough
not to do their research, they deserve it.

Work is calling now, and I guess I’ll answer it.

One good day is better than none

When we got down here to Whitney on Friday, it rained most of the way down and we had a couple of good downpours that evening. They conveniently
worsened when we were unloading the car. Yesterday was a great day. It
was very beautiful and sunny. The temperature was not that bad at all and
we had a nice breeze to keep us cool.

Last night however, the storms came through! I bet we got a good inch to
inch and a half of rain. Lots of good lightning and thunder to go with
all the rain too. We left our towels outside (oops) to dry off but I
guess that did not happen. This morning we are enjoying the quiet of the
morning and getting ready to head back to civilization. More when we get

Capitalism… yaaay!

So I finally figured out what to use for some good counterweight on a
project I am working on. Lead shot! Dense and small, I could get to some
pretty decent weights fairly quickly. I called the local gun range and
the guy said he sold shot, but in 5 pound boxes, $19.95 each.
Ooookaaaay….. So I called a place down in Richardson and the guy said
he’d sell me a 25lb bag for $15. SOLD!

Tomorrow we are heading down to the lake. I am looking forward to a nice
weekend down there. The pisser is instead of bringing pleasure reading,
I’ll have a nice stack of schoolwork to go over. Lovely ain’t it?
Though, next week marks the 1/2 way point so that’s a kick ass!

Time to get ready to sleep now. Did not sleep through storms last night
for some reason…

Seems like when it rains, it pours! I found some photography gigs that I
am persuing right now and they all seem to be on the same couple of days
or when we are going to be in Destin (2 months!!). Its very strange and
cosmic how this tends to happen.

I’ve been busting my ass with school stuff the past 2 weeks. We had a
project due in one class (I think I was the first to turn it in, but I’m
not sure. Its due by Friday) and our group project is getting more and
more complicated in the other. I’ll definately be glad when this
trimester is over! I’ll have a wealth of new knowledge and a couple of
weeks off (whee vacation!)

With all that said, I’ve got to run away now!

welp, I’ve got the new palm in and it is bad to the bone. Thanks again
Birdie! Its a bit late, yes I know. We had some friends over tonight and
Chris is feeling a bit sick so I figured I’d chill in front of the
computer for a few before I hit the sack and was subjected to her poisons.

I hope everyone’s weekend is good!

Stupid weed..

Thursday, June 5th, 2003

I got so upset with this week in my back yard that I can’t get rid of
yesterday. I just dug those things up, filled in the holes with some lawn
soil, and reseeded. Did I find any treasure you ask? Well, I did find a
green shop rag that was buried about 4 inches down. So if you think that
treasure comes in green shop rags, I hit the jackpot.

It is raining today, so all that seed I spread yesterday should be getting
well watered in. This weekend I think we are looking forward to a little
R&R. We’ve been running around every weekend for the last 2 months, and
I’m tired. Plus, next week we are going to the lake. So its time to
catch up on school work and really enjoy working around the house.

I’m wearing sandals today with the rain. Figured if you cant win, might
as well have some fun…
