Ode to a la Mode

happy Memorial Day weekend!

in between the BBQ's and Band of Brothers marathon and maybe even the Coca-Cola 600 from Charlotte Motor Speedway, we all keep in mind the memory of those who paid the price of devotion for their country...

This weekend I spent part of the time in the area of Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina. I think I drove by the campuses of N.C. State, Duke, and UNC-Chapel Hill, all in one day. Several hours involved me on the highways, dodging the NASCAR traffic. The last few installs have been fairly smooth. I just might be hitting a groove finally. I recently moved into my 3rd apartment in this complex. (having your own room is awesome by the way) Some of the office staff let me use their internet/tv/food while I watched their dogs for them.

Yes, I also watched the new 'Pirates' movie. Yes, I almost fell asleep.

Off I go to church now. Check back later y'all.

A little fish told me

Tech life ... oh brother ...

Late nights, early mornings, sitting around waiting, trying to hurry up on jobs, making customers happy, starving, getting stuffed, getting fat, working out, gas stations, NBA playoffs, taking out trash, getting equipment, maybe some midnight movies, restaurants, keeping barcodes accurate, seizing phone lines, hating cancels, hating pulls, working with reps, dealing with GPS, securing tools, loud/messy roommates, (it rains a lot), traffic jams, avoiding tickets, grocery shopping, no mail, spotty phone service, off & on internet reception, laundry, shooting pool, perfect paperwork, tech meetings, service calls, and still getting in some blogging!

- your welcome -

Thor loves his mom

The Charlotte chronicles continue...

- crawl spaces: does that even sound like it's any fun? the correct answer is no way jose. one option when getting phone line seizure is accessing the crawl space to run a line from the keypad to the outside phone box. recently this happened and i felt like the lady in "Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom" when she was in the tunnel trying to help Indy and Shorty get out of a trap and she had bugs and creepy crawlies all over here (super gross)

i do what i must
