CarFP [Jul. 30th, 2009|12:09 pm]

So I'm starting to look into acquiring a new vehicle to replace the Jeep as a primary-use vehicle. Not ditching the Jeep, since it's all paid off and the work it needs is kind of fun, from a hobby/educational standpoint, and it provides me a good hauling/sick dog vehicle/poor winter weather vehicle.

This leaves me in the interesting position of trying to figure out what I would like in a new vehicle.

What I know is as follows:

Con Ops will open at 7 AM.

Well, actually, I have it set for 9 AM, but I was amused by the thought while I was doing the schedule and moving it from 0700 to 0900.

My supervisor is a fuckin' lolcat.

I send him a text to remind him to get coffee this morning, he replies 'Has.'

Appropriate Song [Feb. 20th, 2009|07:44 am]
It popped into my head yesterday, though I've not listened to it in ages.

Fortunately, a decent version can be had on iTunes Plus, though I prefer the one on the American Wake album.

So I show up at 0500 to do some maintenance here at work and realize that I neglected to acquire the passwords I needed to do one of the upgrades.

Gone and done it now.... [Jan. 22nd, 2009|12:04 am]
[Tags|, ]

So, I meant to do this Monday, but forgot. So, heck, I did it today. Just joined the VCDL, GOA, and the NRA.

I missed out on VCDL Lobby Day (MLK Jr Day), since I just wasn't feeling like driving to Richmond, but I said I'd join up, instead, to sort of make up for it. Two days late, but hey, doesn't make much difference.

Anyrate, I figured I'd do a little investing in my rights, particularly the one I tend to be most...concerned about, since I believe it's going to come under some notable fire in the next four years or so.

Don't worry, though. I still think Rush Limbaugh is an idiot, and I'm still a big fan of all the other rights. I just find a piece of paper isn't much in the way of protection for them.

Colder Than Antarctica! [Jan. 17th, 2009|12:44 am]

It's friggin' 1F here, right now, and I'm told by a contact who's on assignment at McMurdo down in Anarctica, that it's 30F there. Of course, it's the middle of summer for them, but, still! Virginia is colder than Antarctica! Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

That's how I feel. Just doing this to kill time while I wait to unwind, since I missed the narrow window around midnight tonight in which I was able to sleep, thanks to the poker game going on in my living room. Now I'm too tense about that and about all the other crap I have to deal with to actually get to sleep for now, which also irritates me and makes me more tense.

So, screw it. I have a mug of Tension Tamer, we'll see if it can do the job.

My schedule for the next two weeks is...densely-packed.

18 Dec: Work, Irish Session. Should call some apartment places and set up walkthroughs during lunch
19 Dec: Nothing, thank the gods. Should call some apartment places... Do need to actually keep working through my book on semiconductors after work. And I should run.
20 Dec: Thing at nius's place.
21 Dec: Nothing, yet. Semiconductors, apartment stuff.
22 Dec: See 19 Dec.
23 Dec: See 19 Dec.
24 Dec: Work half day, leave, drive to Dad's place (~4hrs, if traffic is nice), do the Christmas Eve thing with him and his wife, go back and crash at Mom's place.
25 Dec: Christmas Day with Mom.
26 Dec: Boxing Day music party with Dad and friends.
27 Dec: Probable shooting trip with Mom.
28 Dec: Get up early, drive back to BBurg early. Try to relax?
29 Dec: Work again.
30 Dec: More work.
31 Dec: More work, leave right after work, drive to Mom's place (~4.5 hrs, if traffic is good), crash overnight.
01 Jan: Secure MAGFest.
02 Jan: Secure MAGFest.
03 Jan: Secure MAGFest.
04 Jan: Secure MAGFest. Drive back to BBurg in time to crash around midnight.
05 Jan: Work.
10 Jan: Shooting trip with nius and zannyvix, hopefully it'll happen, unlike our last planned one.
17 Jan: Local contra dance, going to shadow the Sound Guy, so that'll cut into the dancing, alas. Still, an important job.
More ramblingCollapse )

I guess that'll do for now. I think I'll be able to get to sleep.
