the forward thinker

The month of August passed without an update. I just noticed that today. I was busier than usual that month with work clocking in around 50 hours a week.

August is the month that marks the anniversary of when this website became a part of the world wide web. This site has been online for over six years now.

Work is returning to normal. I have been averaging about 45 hours a week. I hope to be back to the usual 40 by the beginning of next month. The Texas heat is slowly leaving the state, and that makes me real happy. I really enjoy the cooler weather.

Since this post went stale before it started, I’ll end it here. Peace out.

the buffiends vs. the mother pluckers

This title of this post is irrelevant to what you’re about to read. I had it saved as a draft but never got around to writing it. We’re probably gonna hit up the Chinese buffet this weekend, and we will be attending Pluckers this upcoming Tuesday, so maybe I can feel inspired to write the relevant post.

Work has been miserable since last week until today. I’ve been flooded with so much work, but I finally had a peaceful day today where I was being hounded by someone needing some sort of assistance. I was able to live in my personal bubble and do my tasks to get things done. I’d like to thank my bro again for writing up some volatile batch files to get the work done much much quicker.

Unfortunately, I will have to be in bed decently early tonight. I have to be at work at 9am for a meeting tomorrow. I am not looking forward to this, because I normally do not function at that hour. I also worked an hour over on Monday and two hours over on Tuesday. I felt so overworked that I wanted to minimalize the amount of time I spent in front of the computer hence the lack of posts lately.

Tomorrow is Thursday, TGTF Day. I hope to leave as early as possible tomorrow. If I have to be at work at nine, then I should be able to leave at five. I will probably leave at four, because I don’t want the overtime. I will probably leave at six on Friday, since I will still have accrued two hours overtime. I would rather not be at work knowing that I’ve done my tasks and done my time than be on the clock longer than I should.

Friday is payday. w00t! The few days after pay day usually signal eating out rather than the eating in routine which I plan on doing some Chinese buffet this weekend and Pluckers on Tuesday. I know I already wrote that, but I’m excited. I may not have too much meat on my bones, but I looove food. Hell, who doesn’t?

My car hasn’t been well lately. It leaks oil, and I am going to try to repair it DIY-style for minimal cost (JB Weld, baby!). The car is over eleven years old, and by default, cars that age seem to fall apart slowly but surely.

Mare & I are supposed to make our Za of the Week tonite, but I am not sure since I have to be awake so early tomorrow. She isn’t off work yet, and it’s already half past ten. Maybe we’ll do it on Thursday and if not, then Saturday. We’ll see. Peace out.
