Life in a nutshell, at least a walnut, a pecan would be too small

Wow it has been a while.

The barge is back in the water (happened last Wednesday), but I seem to be having electric problems. We (the electrician and I) have not been able to narrow it down. Every thing seems to point to cable going connecting the barge to the shore, but jiggleing it doesn't seem to cause the shore breaker to trip. I am not even sure if I will get to finish this entry before the electric pops.

I have primed all the new panels and window sills. Hopefully the weather will hold out and I will be able to paint the new areas also. I picked up the paint this morning from Rhodda Paints on Stone Way. I gave them a peice of wood with the old paint to match. They did an amazing job. The test sploodge they did is indistingushable from the old paint.

I am working on getting the barge back in order but intermittant electricity has made it a little hard. I am about 50% done. I bought some new weather-stripping for the doors. I removed the old stuff when I painted them (it was pretty cruddy). The doors are now "ice-blue" on the outside. I decided against restaining/polyurithaning them as the polyurithane wears pretty quickly in the sun and rain. My goal is to paint the windows (which are peeling) to match. Paint the trim dark blue and eventually paint the barge a nice light purple or lavender. I like the colors that the barge is now, but I think a change might be in order. Sounds like chore for this summer.

Tonight I went to <a href="http://www.tostlounge.com">TosT lounge</a> in Fremont to listen to some music and drink a few cosmopolitians.

Yesterday I had a really good one-on-one with my manager. We talked about the fact that I am not working to my potential but it had a positive note. He feels I have the knowledge to move to the next level and is hoping to see me put my skills together to manage it. It would be really stupid of me to waste this oppourtunity, he is probably the best manager I could ask for if I want to continue at Microsoft. I keep thinking of quiting, but I don't want to do this without making sure it is not just an artifact of the sleep aepnia or ADD which is currntly going untreated. It is a fantastic job with amazing pay and benefits I know I would not be able to get something similar with the economy the way it is. The amount of regret I would feel if I changed my mind would be huge.

    I should copyright my DNA. Then if I were ever sued for paternity, I could counter-sue for copyright violations for the derivative work!

  • New 3 Mile Time

    Beat my old time by a few seconds, but the old time was with no incline, the new time is at 1% 3 miles @ 1% incline - 20 minutes 54 seconds.
