9704 – Tuesday –

Cinco De Mayo… Cheers! We had ratatouille and baked potato for supper. (But the bagel I ate had jalapenos on it!)

Contemplating going to Bengie’s Drive-in this weekend. Triple feature of Fanboys, Monsters vs. Aliens and Star Trek a fun, dorky night.
I’m not sure though – I’d prefer to see MvsA in 3-d.

Talked to Danny on the phone tonight – he might be jumping into a game of Champions at his local game store this summer. 150 points – the store used to be the Dragon’s Lair, but it’s now Adventure something or another.

Bro sent me a text from his new phone – I’ll call him tomorrow and see how he sounds. I’m sure he’s happy to be out and about.

No Franklin again this morning – I noticed that the lawn was treated with chemicals – hopefully that kept him away, along with the cold, drizzly rain.


Pull in your tum,
stick out your tush,
wiggle your hips,
now give ’em a push

Godspeed, Captain Chaos


As I was starting to say, I’m glad it’s staying a bit rainy and cool outside… I’m probably the only one who is loving a little soft, cool rain over sun and heat. I’m a hairy, big beast… hm, an excuse for another old Ditko picture, I think, dear journal.

9653- Wednesday

Bro’s girlfriend / possible mother to his kid Shannon has been found, and she and her baby are doing OK – Momster is distancing herself from the situation – and I think that’s a good thing.


Google voice – free phone goodies –

http://www.google.com/support/voice/bin/answer.py?answer=142423 – That sounds amazing… google… I hope you don’t turn too evil on me!

Ran a query to update about 20000 drivers for a client – amazing what a little snippet of code in the right place at the right time will do.

 

update driver_details set timestamp=’2009-03-18 20:10:00′

WHERE

driver_details.MC_ACCT_NO =  ‘**account number**’ AND

driver_details.DRV_TERMINATED_DT is null

 

 That’ll earmark all the active users for that group and send an update file to everybody. Hooray for Triggers !

 

Chasing potential errors after, now. Seems to be working within parameters, save for one not splitting properly.

Chinese food from the Octagon tonight – this was try #2 – I suspect BHK’ll be leery of a third try, unless Little Panda or Grace’s are closed.

9639 – Friday

BHK gave me a lift in to work this morning – let me sleep in an extra hour or so. I repay her by going over her accent on the way in – we were talking about someone’s "pen collection", and With BHK, Pin & Pen sound alike – and I had no context cues to work with. so I innocently asked if it was the writing implement or the sharp thing that pierces fabric.

That devolved into a Rosetta-stone style communication back and forth – She doesn’t pronounce the difference between pin or pen. Long story short, we just were silly and giggly on the ride in – perhaps you had to be there, dear journal.

[update – noonish]

Found out this afternoon that my brother’s girlfriend Shannon has had a relapse and has vanished with her baby (Bro’s daughter). Bro is still in prison for the next few months (out in May) – My Mom is understandably upset – had bonded some with the child and is looking into legal recourse. I really don’t think that they’ve even established paternity yet, so I doubt she has much to work with.

I am a bit cold about the whole thing – saw this coming (heck, I dealt with Derek’s bouts back and forth with rehab, and know how that whole deal works), but there is not a lot I can do for any of them.

She’s made a good decision not to pursue custody or guardianship or anything like that and I feel she made a good, if very difficult choice.

Tomorrow, BHK and I are attending the United Way Mardi Gras – we got comp tickets from the Maerten’s Gang!

We’re taking a limo, with the whole crew, and it’ll be like BHK and I are going to prom. I’m looking forward to it all!

Picnic at home night! BHK and I are going to have fun with a light supper of veggies, fruit and cheese … just lots of fun and relaxation – just what a Friday night should be! Starting in a little bit… until later, dear journal!

9526 – Monday

Feeling better today. Physical Therapy seems to be working out some of the back issues, thankfully. Mentally and physically in a more positive place – also, sundown was at 4:45 today. I certainly suspect that I don’t have Seasonal Affective Disorder. I think that the dark and cold weather mostly suits me, even if I try to be a warm and cheery sort of person.

After PT we went to Mexico for supper. I was perversely hungry for Mexican food after seeing a filthy Mexican resaurtant on Kitchen Nightmares yesterday. The food was superb – BHK and I both sussed out that it was the cook that sometimes works in Lusby on the kitchen tonight.

My mom met Shannon and her possible granddaughter – (well, by proxy – Shannon is still pregnant, due in a month or so.) I’m still not sure how that’s going to pan out.

Newt is really enjoying the ledge in the loft these days… one of the warmest spots in the house! I hope he shares with Pye, at least a bit. Hm.. somehow I doubt it. Interesting that his winter coat is a bit more visible than usual – likely that he and Pye were running around pretty heavily before naptime.

Physical Therapy today. Leg lifts, stretches, bicycle, and then the stim/heat combo that works so well for me. I needed it – I was really stiff yesterday.

Forgot to mention yesterday that Chris and Larry brought over a couple of preacher cookies for us… much better than the last batch a year ago – see archive below.

While I was fixing BHK’s machine, I was multitasking a bit – catching up with scripting, listening to old episodes of Dragnet in the background – The radio show is really superior to the TV series. Additionally – I listened a bit to some of my old time radio broadcasts. OTRcat sent me a nice collection of Richard Diamond not too long ago in exchange for a link on my website – the clarity on them was excellent, especially given that the condition of the original recordings must’ve been a real problem to fix. I’ll be looking to go back to him for more OTR goodies as time goes by. Dick Powell is no slouch as a voice actor, and I’m really pretty glad to have my collection filled out. (5 CDs worth of stuff, I’ve only begun to begin to listen. (I’m thinking about getting the Edgar Allan Poe Collection next – maybe for road trips through Baltimore)

The spawn of the XM Sirius fusion emerges tomorrow, and Orbitcast has picked up the complete channel listing for XM subscribers that goes into effect in less than 24 hours. It’s fairly grim for some diehard XM fans—a lot of stations have been erased (bye bye punk channel) or are being replaced by Sirius pseudo-equivalents.

No more upop? lucy? fred? ethel? high standards? soul street? Doesn’t look good, kids.
