Working a long string of Mid Shifts right now so things are kind of weird around the house and at work. Even on my days off I'm still trying to stay up so I don't have to shift back and forth and screw up my body clock more than it already is. Also getting in some overtime this pay period too.
I got the new 2016 Terry Pratchett Discworld calendar. It's kind of depressing. I think since Sir Terry's death this year they decided to go with a very dark art style for the 2016 calendar. It just makes me kind of sad.
The above Icon is from some gif I found online and I added the text several years ago. Never used it much but now we have a cat that looks like the one pictured and since she is usually biting and clawing me it seems very appropriate now.
On the house front unpacking continues at a slow but steady pace. Built some shelves in the Man Cave and have unpacked lots of books. Still have many more to go. The house is a lot more work to keep up than the previous house. The yard is huge compared to the old one. The old one took around 15 to 20 mins to mow. New one over an hour and a half. I use the time wisely I listen to audio books. Terry Pratchett & Stephen Baxter's Long Earth series have been a couple that I've enjoyed listening to. The books give a very different take on parallel worlds. I've found both books to be very interesting and fun to read.
Been trying to exercise more since my new job is much more sedentary than my last one.
The trip is only for a couple of days but its really at a bad time personally and professionally.
New icon showing my support of Oreo's and Love. Like I really needed an excuse to buy Oreos. Like any one would really boycott an Oreo.
My VORTAC looks something like this one. But with no snow right now since its June. ;-)
I've also started exercising more I'm trying to lose some weight before World Con this year. I really don't want to wander around on the convention floor in pain all the time like I have at some of the comic conventions I've been to in the last few years.
Work has been hectic today with my boss here and one of the generators acting up. Not that I was working on a generator, I was in the office working on some class work for a piece of equipment that I've been learning. Funny thing was the thing I was learning decided to stop working just before I left work today. So I had to go out and fix it. Practical experience. :-)
Spent the day at CID airport learning to use a new piece of test equipment. It was an interesting class the equipment is used to check batteries.
The other thing that happened today was Verizon pushed an update to the DROID X to android 2.3. It has really increased the speed of the phone.

Next on the weird day meter was one of the windows in the control tower decided to crack, it started with a load bang and then the crack slowly climbed across the window. These are huge windows too maybe 8 or 9 feet high. Fortunately they are double paned and it was the inside one that cracked. Now we have a big project for either the spring or summer. Going to need a crane to replace that window.
Picked up comics that came in late this week. DC Logo covers look pretty good. Anyone of them would make a great T-shirt.
Well my boss was here today and another guy from Detroit who had a nice big truck was here too we thought that we would do the fencing company an favor and remove the tree to a wood dump near the airport. With the help of the fence companies Bobcat skid-loader we got it into the truck and drove it slowly to the wood dump. It only fell out of the truck once on the way there. :)
We muscled it back into the truck and once we got to the dump pushed it out and rolled it off the cliff into the dump. So far it has made for an interesting day.
