just finished one report, found out I can kill another report that no one really uses, and thinking about lunch.
Then have to run home and get the mutt out of the house while a RE agent looks at it.

I just found out that Little, Wayne works at my company. So far, my requests for an autograph have been ignored.

My contract requires a 3 year stint here before I can bid out, so I probably will buy a house. I should be able to turn a profit on it.

Of course, my willingness to stay here varies with my mood so who knows. I could be here for the next 30 years.

Just finished my workout and run. Now, resting before I go pull the weeds out of my garden. This is the first year I planted green chilies and I am pleased at how fast they are growing.

If you go the van route, get the clown suit.

Didn't you move to a really nice house about two years ago?

Sipping green tea, running reports, loading data, and getting ready to make an offer on a foreclosure we found.
Gonna be a buttload of work to make it a nice house again....and it's actually bigger than we wanted, but I think we can make a bit of money off the place in the long run, and it definitely has potential to be a really nice home.

Awwww man! I wish I had an office like 65er.

Thank God i'm off on holiday (6 weeks in camper van in the UK) next week. All I need to do is fight the urge to throttle some idiot quasi-work colleague in the meantime...

Why fight it?

I am going to see if the orchestration server is working as advertised today.

5 hours left in the work day and i've got zilch to do. Some bastard blocked my reserved spot this morning. Sometimes I wish I were still a brazen teenager with the balls to do something about it. Petty, I know, but this person is a repeat offender.

I'm getting a cat, at least for a few months until my sister and her family get a house. How do I get the most use out of a cat? will he clean dishes that I leave in the sink or on the counter? does he dust while I'm away? If I leave a can opener and some food on the counter, will he help himself? I don't get home until late a couple nights a week. Damnit.

Dust with the cat prior to washing the dishes with said kitty. Make sure to use plenty of elbow grease when scrubbing pots and pans. Smearing wet cat food all over your Rottweiler will keep both entertained and well fed. Mount a Go Pro on both and post the vid on Foo. Feel free to put it to music... perhaps Cat People (Putting Out Fire With Gasoline) by David Bowie

You can leave the cat dry food during the day. Cats are pretty independent and don't need a lot to entertain them. You'll want to get a scratching post if your sister doesn't have one and a little ball or catnip mouse for it to play with.

And you you won't need to worry about any spiders on your floors or lower parts of the walls anymore.
