I draw the line at Evan Williams bourbon, though. That s+!~ tastes like bleach.


Sorry to hear about Shadow Treppa

So, back to school. 4 hour commute for a 1-1/4 hour class. I love being stubborn!


Holy cow, dude. That's dedication. I hope you can do something productive on the commute.


I dislike whiskies of all stripes. To many youthful follies

Listen to books driving the first hour and type on my iPhone for the last hour


Idk if it is very productive, but hey, reading...

I can maybe update my PbPs as well. Getting anything homework wise done on the T is kinda not going to happen

I've always been a fan of Redrum and Coke or any kind of good rum actually. :-)

Cannot drink beer, like Hard Root Beer and Hard Raspberry Lemonade though.

Mmm, Redrum.

It and Sunny D is friggin delicious.


Rum is good
Vodka too
Tequila is nice

Not a fan of gin
Or whisky
Or basically anything in the brown liquor family

Experimenting with trail mixes. I need to acknowledge that I need a snack and prepare for it instead of denying the urge and ending up eating potato chips.

Plus I need good fats, like Omega 3 and ALA

Plus fat-heavy snacks seem to fill me longer rather than carb-rich ones

Back from seeing a friend after she returned from your side of the world.

I had two cokes with rum and lime.

While she had no chance to met Gary and Max, she would probably make you happy by being enamored of New York City.

I am glad she enjoyed herself!

Yesterday John called ahead to the hotel in Seattle where I'm staying on my business trip and arranged for a note to be left in my hotel room with cookies and truffles. He never ceases to amaze :)


Those were truffles?

Please, please, please do not text (or do any web searching or browsing) while driving. It is very dangerous.


The final hour I am on the subway. No fears. Listening to books is what I do while driving and that is the same as listening to music


And on that lovely note:

GOOD MORNING TREEFORTNAM!!!!

Another fun-filled jam-packed (packing jam? Where do we get these colloquialisms?) day ahead.

Day three of trail mix snack experiment: I found that the local Whole Foods has a very nice selection of fruits and nuts for sale. I made up a mixture thus:

  • Goji berries
  • dried cherries
  • dried blueberries
  • dried cranberries
  • raisins
  • filberts
  • cashews
  • walnuts
  • almonds
  • pepitas
  • sunflower seeds (hulled)
  • basic granola

The mixture is tasty, although I am still getting used to the nuts. I am not a tree nut fan, but I am learning. I have to remember that this mixture is calorie dense (about 500 calories a cup) so moderation is key. I found yesterday that it did keep my hunger in check, and I was not tempted to snack while at school or on the drive home.

Ok. Just making sure.

My trail mix recipe:

Peanuts
Almonds
Pecans
Raisins
Dried Banana
M&Ms

I haven't tried dried cherries or blueberries but I will if I can find some now.

Edit: Maybe dried apple would be awesome too.

I initially read that first one as "Gojira Berries"


You call that a snack?!?

I can't eat that all-natural junk. It aint healthy I tell ya!

My snacks?
Meat.

Lunch?
Meat.

Dinner?
Meat.

Vegetable with dinner? Isn't meat a vegetable?
(I swear, My father in law said this once. I think he was serious.) :/

For dessert?
You got it,... LEFTOVER MEAT! :)

Which explains my not-shrinking waistline,... :P

Why, Ragadolf? Why? Anything we can do to convince you otherwise?


*sigh*

Even if I wanted meat, sadly it is not in the budget

Same. I take turkey and Pepperjack cheese and a pickle to work with me. Occasionally I'll make an egg sandwich. With Pepperjack. And Sriracha.


~sighs~ Working towards 3 & 1/2 hours of overtime, maybe 4. The money is nice, but I am starting to get tired and I am sure the dogs need to be let out.

On the plus side, Churches Chicken will have fresh biscuts.


Courage, dragon. The pups will endure.

I'm prepping for job 3 day 2

Did job 2 this morning. A couple hours of picking up day camp goers. Not much money, but every bit helps.

I feel your pain. I have never worked three jobs before, so you are one up on me.

I'm preparing for a luxurious week in bed napping, drinking the finest water and protein shakes, watching my Netflix queue, playing Halo, reading... it'll be great!

Ugh, 3 jobs?!?
I have never worked 3 jobs before.

Ive worked over 100 hours in a single 7 day week a few times, but that was all just the ONE job!

Power to the Monkey! :)

Back when I worked as a loader at UPS, all of the junior salary guys (i.e. the guys directly above me on the totem pole) routinely had to work 90-100 hours per week. My supervisor came in one day looking beat all to hell, and when the conversation came around to it, I asked him what kind of money he made. His response: "I think when you boil it all down, I make about four dollars an hour." He wasn't joking.

I once worked 42 out of 48 hours, shoveling snow, 25 inches in one storm.

I made so much money that week, hit OT at $20 an hour by Tuesday. :-)

Ah heaven


Well, there won't be much lounging at my new job. I just walked for about five hours solidly. Who knew there was so much ground to cover in WHOI?


Going to the dentist...


Back from the dentist.

Actually I left almost an hour ago but I had some things to be done.

A letter from a local prosecution office came to my father - who is living in UK since 2006... I could not receive it on a post office (nor I would want to), but I wrote down the case number and go to the office myself to check what the heck.

After some searching in the files and archives I was informed that it's an old case, when my father's car shop car service garage was burglarized (burgled? subject to burglary?). They are closing the case due to statue of limitation and want to get rid of remaining evidence: two crooked metal rods.

One statement that I am son of my father, who is living in UK, and I keep his mobile possessions in custody, I got two crooked metal rods so they can properly archive the files.

Yay?
