I am not talking about pizza. another night spent sipping wine and playing dominos at the Ellweins. the dogs had fun and so did we. A welcome evening to a long horrible week. I know the full moon is close because everyone is acting crazy.

What is it about the full moon that makes customer service people cringe? I can tell when it is near because the frequency and strangeness of questions begins to pick up. Who but a crazy man would stop by a person's work 5 minutes before close and engage in a lengthy conversation in how he believes that the aliens are out to get him. Discussing air filter patents and the cleanliness of gasoline when the pumper truck is filling the tanks up.... it is creepy but fascinating. You can't help but egg them on. So it is partially my fault. I have decided that when I retire I will go an harass my local public servant at 4:25 on a friday afternoon just to get my just rewards.

Karma. that is what it is all about, like my good friend Earl sez, what you give you get. Well, what I get I give.

Nighty nite.

Mr. and Mrs. Debra Heiser

The wedding pictures were ready on friday...
We invited Rachel, Pat, Mike, Uta, Lukas, Rich and Nancy over and we had a bonfire with a wedding picture viewing in the garage.

I have decided that I am just not photogenic. We have 600 photos and there are only a handful where I can honestly say "Damn, I look good!"

I wonder if they have classes to learn how to sit for pictures. Training to learn how to smile, lean, not to squint or have a horsey smile. I think that someone could make a lot of money if they did it... I however, would be a student not a teacher.

Everybody's doing it!

Well after much blog envy I thought I would try this out. Start the clever musings:

I have never gotten the hang of Wednesdays. However, I have to say that since I made it to the gym, the day wasnt' a total loss. Also, the guys we hired to take down the tree on thursday, had most of it down today. $230 to take down a tree, it's a bargain.

That just leaves the rest of the house to-do list, our deadline... Thanksgiving.
  • gutters (coming on Saturday)
  • second coat of paint (prolly saturday)
  • finish tiling bathroom (??)
  • electrical for bathroom (??)
  • breakfast bar (??)
  • taping and sanding (??)
  • wood floors (??)
  • wood trim (??)

There's more but it gets depressing.
