      We're currently in the process of selecting a house so we can escape from apartment life forever. Honestly. I don't think it can happen fast enough given the genetic defectives we have living above AND below us. The apartment has a shared drive (it's VT...we suck like that) and none of these jackasses can park in proper order or by a reasonable time each night. Ever. By reasonable, I mean by 10PM. That's not too bad in a place that rolls up its sidewalks at 9 is it?

      Anyway, all the houses so far have not been a good fit (or reasonably priced for the work they need) but there's a nice cape in the next town over that just might be the ticket. Here's hoping!

      Remember when they started putting ads on VHS tapes back in the day? Disney was easily the worst, piling on at least ten to fifteen minutes worth of crap you had to fast-forward through to get to the feature. I had though that DVDs and then BluRay would allow us to escape that. Press the menu button and *poof* there's the title screen ready for viewing.

      Nope.

      It's a bit better now, since it's possible to move through the ads more quickly, but why in the hell can't we just dump them altogether? Do they seriously think that we're not aware up upcoming films long before the disc hits the shelves?

      ...means another paper for school. I've never had to do so much writing in my life as I have since going back to school. There are almost no tests, just an endless stream of papers that don't require me to draw any new conclusions or think in a different direction.

      At least the instructors don't seem to mind that I do my best to have fun with them and keep them light and fun to read. Well, as fun as a brief study on the biotic and abiotic factors regulated insect growth and development can be.

      Bored yet? I am.

      An unexplained absence of a couple years isn't too bed right? It's been a busy time though. The contract with the weather service is gone, I'm most of the way done with my Bachelor's in Environmental Science, got a new job in the help desk for a printing soultions company... Just a lot.

      I'll hopfully have my star again by the end of the weekend and all will be right with the world. So...silly question, but did I miss much?

      So I can get home and jump into the Reach beta. Of course it starts on a day where I have to drive to the furthest reaches of my territory. Anybody wanna drop with me this weekend when I get back?

      Predators, the newest chapter in the franchise is due out this July. They've got quite a cast and an interesting spin on the story so I hope they can pull it off. No matter what, there's no way it can be as bad as Batman and Robin was.

      Now if you'll excuse me, I have to stock up on Raisinettes and popcorn butter.

    • On the move?

      Been doing some job hunting as the idea of jumping ship gets more and more appealling each day. All of them would require that we move, and most pay for relocation. So far we're looking at:

      smiley9.gif Manchester, NH - Close to family but in a town that's wavering between up and coming and Gotham wannabe.

      smiley9.gif Spring Lake, NC - They have sweet tea and the decency to ask me what kind of coke I want when I sit in a restaurant.

      smiley9.gif Ft Walton Beach, FL - In the Florida panhandle, so technically its lower Alabama, but within easy reach of the Big Easy and giant mosquitoes.

      Did I mention that all of them would also require that I deploy again? One of these days, I;m going to find a job that doesn't take me from home so much. *sigh*

      The wind site I had to install was started today. All told, I put 1200 pounds of concrete in the ground. By hand. Mike was there (over two hours late, but there) although in retrospect if he hadn't shown at all I don't think I would have noticed a difference. Its like working with a retarded monkey, only without the fun.

      As much as I like this gig, the time has come for me to find something else, so its time to brush off the resume and go hunting. Of course, I'll keep going on this until I find something else, but if I keep working with this clown I'll wind up in prison.

      Hope the rest of you had a great start to your week!

      You were one of my first friends on this website. We didn't talk much in recent years but I watched you through facebook, I could see how much you adored your wife and kids. I was so shocked to hear of your passing this morning. Rest in peace mate.

      I'm gonna miss you, man. We didn't talk as much as we used to, but you're posts were still there everyday. Always one of the more sane parts of my day.

      Sleep well, friend.

      I thought of a cool personality quirk for your character. He doesn't care what you call him as long as you refer to him by rank and call him sir. example...

      Sargent Brooks - addressing Lt. Smiths"So you want us to run right at the aliens, firing blindly while you sneak around and plant the bomb on their ship?! Nice plan Cock Smoker"

      LT Smiths - "What did you just call me?"

      Sargent Brooks - "I'm sorry, Lt Cock Smoker SIR"

      Lt Smiths - "That's better"

      I took a laptop, a book, my iPhone, and my small sewing basket in to that test. It was still 8 hours of tedium - sitting on hard cafeteria style chairs and the room got colder as the day went on.

      Aww You are kind, but I am still not convinced either way. Since there is a small ranch nearby, they may have housed the animals there. Wood is in short supply there, hence the building being made of stone. So, it is still a toss up, that only a few test pits could answer. :P And, since that is on private property now, it is likely the owner really could care less about historical/archaeological information. XD

      Ah, the fixer upper. lol It is along the almost deserted highway between Battle Mountain and Austin, in Nevada. The support for it being a possible school house comes from the large single room in the interior where there is a single large woodstove. I lean that way because there is no corral or place for bedding extra horses. But, this sits on a hill overlooking a tiny ranch house, and may have served as a school for the ranching kids for miles around. But, it could have also been an intermediate stage stop with nice amenities...ie. a stove... that part of Nevada gets snowed in ! :P
