Just got done shoveling the like 5 inches of now wet and heavy snow off my driveway... Brutal. It's a good thing I'm a young man.

Just came in from doing the same... except I also live on a corner lot with really wide walks.

Now I am writing my letter to Santa...

All I want for Christmas is a new back, left hip, and a snowblower.

I'm really considering booking a session with a coach to learn the Olympic lifts. Being able to clean and jerk big weights would be very cool.

Pushing applications between clusters, wrapping up my first coffee, and listening to Fleetwood Mac.

Goodness, I hope this doesn't break anything. Good thing this is a dev cluster.

Book yourself one of those boudoir photo shoots and give her a nice poster size for the bedroom and some wallet shots for her purse.

You're welcome.

Really hating work today. I despise the Christmas radio station. One of my coworkers actually tattled on me for not having it on all the time; petty revenge will be had.

Rode down to the mall, then the PO, then the all-hands over on campus. Dropped my phone on the concrete at the mall... darn that Chick-Fil-A being so good. Let's see if the phone warranty pays off.

Up late-ish, updating our Lync environment to the CU that was released in October. Turned on some Christmas music to annoy BenzFanatic.

I'm perusing a forum about snow plow trucks as research for a business venture with a friend of mine.

I consider myself mostly conservative, but holy suffering crap. Every time someone buys a Japanese truck and posts pics, it degrades into flaming and then thirty pages of "MURICA!!!". Apparently, anyone who plows snow with a Tundra or a Titan is worse than Hitler. Bald eagles crying and all that.

It's really quite entertaining.

Morning...coffee consumption under way. 2 eggs and bacon in the gullet. Data Extract in process, and report waiting to be populated.
God I hope it's a quiet day.

Around here, Lync is for folks who can't handle Jabber.

Maybe cause you don't have the bacon and eggs in your gullet.

We had our office holiday breakfast this morning. It was nice. Also the ugly holiday sweater day.

Happy Thursday wishing it was Friday!!!

Morning....just finished a cup of Charbuck's Christmas.....it tasted like charcoal.
The cinnamon scone was good though.
Now I'm trying to figure out how to tell some people that if they want me to build them a database to produce a report, the inputs have to be in the same ****ing format every single ****ing month. I've already stated that 5 or 6 times, but they think that simply means an excel spreadsheet......they don't seem to understand that adding/deleting/moving columns around messes up the imports in Access.

So busy at work. I'm sitting down for the first time today. Last final of the semester tonight, and of course I feel like crap. Thank God tomorrow's Friday.

Morning.....sitting here watching the news, sipping coffee, trying to determine what will be breakfast, tunneled into the office and running some scripts, and generally feeling content.
