More Verbose Updating
So, I'm dealing with a lot of things of a chore type nature and I'm starting to feel a bit behind on all fronts. At home, almost everything is still packed, I have yet to assemble the kids beds (they are sleeping on the air mattress that I was using when I was here alone), and two really big things that we shlepped out here are landfill bound. For those who don't know Schmoopie and I all that well, it was surprising that we needed every inch of that 28 foot moving truck to get moved. We are the sort people that historically and repeatedly would rent a 30'X8'X8' roll off dumpster and purge things. So, having this much crap in the first place is an eye opener. Schmoopie has said that some boxes will remain unpacked until we buy a house, and I'm wondering why we would have things that would fall into that category. On top of all this, I'm hoarking up lung biscuits at a pretty regular pace. I went to work today and was effectively sent home for being so sick and nasty (well, I mean I'm nasty all the time). I could have called in, but being the new guy, I don't want to give the impression that I'm a slacker or hypochondriac. Hell, they may have just sent me home to spare the balance of thier kleenex supply. When mucous hits $.02/ton, I can retire. I exist to make phlegm, you see...
Then there is the matter of my own personal 2001 A Space Odessy monolith. Among the very heaviest things we own is my server rack. It's on caster wheels and is of the six foot variety (versus seven) and so once installed is manageable, but it weighs about 375 pounds. And is in my living room. And is not tested since the move / falling on my right calf. And is the home of my personal domain, insanepursuits.com. So, my prevalent email address is offline until the beast gets moved, and I'm too sick and sore to shlep it. My bet is that I'll have to take everything out of it, and move the rack downstairs empty, then take the guts down an reassemble. Feh. I mean, it's my hobby/career/passion and all, but I'm out of steam in more ways than one.
What else? Oh yeah, we were not told by the Dish network people to take our off-air HD antenna from the old place, so we have very limited Seattle HDTV. I guess I could buy an antenna, but I'm not feeling up to it. Schmoopie left her 12 year old baking stone in the oven at the old place. What do you bet the new owners have no idea the value of that thing and chuck it?
It looks like I'll be going to MA for the second week of December for some EMC SAN training. I'm optimistic I'll be healthy by then. Whew. For now, i'm relaxing and trying to breathe through my nose as much as my circumstances will allow. The Ravens are playing the Bengals in HD, and the cheerleaders are jigly and damp. Life is still good.
Incidentally, is the (NFL) Giants logo
in the same font as the Snickers logo?
