Mixed Bag

Hey there. So, geez, how long has it been? Well, you look great, looks like you've been taking care of yourself. Me? Oh same old same old, you know the drill.

I had the longest workday ever this weekend. I worked from noon till 2am on Saturday, but that's not it. I skipped church Sunday morning, came in to work at 9am, and I worked straight through until 5:30pm on Monday. That's a 32-1/2 hour stretch, including a one-hour lunch break on Sunday and a one-hour lunch break on Monday. It was a big drafting/engineering project, and for the record it did get done on Monday when it was due.

The sad thing is, the drawings will likely sit on someone's desk for a week. The really sad thing is that the all-nighter is all my fault because I'm the hugest procrastinator ever and I underestimated what it would take to finish the job. Self-employment and bad procrastination habits do not comfortably mix well. At first they do, but it gets worse.

On the plus side, last week I wasted valuable time driving to Oklahoma City to see the band Clem Snide play. It was very awesome. One of the guy played the banjo with a bow. It's too bad noone was there, only 40 or so people.

Well, I should probably let you go, I'm sure you're busy these days. It was nice to catch up with you. We should definitely get together sometime, I'll give you a call.

Remnants of a Web Page

So, you think I don't update this page very often? Here is my first ever website that I think I've touched once since the day I made it, about 6 years ago if I remember correctly. It is a website dedicated to celebrating a good work ethic.

None of the links work, they never did, which was part of the joke. It is a good example of what happens to a website when you abandon it to fend for itself on a free webhosting site. It started off with one small Prohosting banner at the bottom of the page.

FYI, when viewing it in Mozilla, I had to scroll way to the right to see the main picture.

Stop Getting on My Case

This is one of my prized possessions, it's an old Samsonite travel cosmetics case from the late 60's. My parents took it with them to Hawaii on their honeymoon, hence the awesome flower sticker.

The reason I like it is because it's a perfect case for holding guitar accessories like picks, extra packs of strings, tuners, capoes, extra batteries, etc... I always have it with me whenever I bring my guitar anywhere. I was playing bass this Sunday at church, but I brought the Samsonite case this week with me to church since I was letting the woman who was leading music use my guitar since she can't plug her own guitar into the sound system.

After the service everyone was kind of milling around the sanctuary talking to eachother and whatnot. I was packing up my stuff, and the woman who borrowed my guitar asked me, "Do you keep your capo in the guitar case or do you keep it with your tuners and cables and stuff?"

I said, "I usually keep that in my cosmetics case." Which isn't worth blogging about, except that I said that right as my face was passing in front of a microphone and the sound system was still on for some reason. So everyone in the church building heard me loudly mention that I have a cosmetics case.

Looking back, I should have added, "What, do you think my head is this shiny when I roll out of bed?" [note: my head was freshly shaved yesterday]
