Feld Thoughts: Discovering Work Life Balance
Random ramblings about not necessarily anything in particular, and not much more....
Take note, it's important... I might even try it ;-)
Now this is funny - you have to click the link though, coz it's Friday night, so I'm lazy and have a stottin headache...
So I splashed out (all 10 bucks per site) and you can now access this page from www.aaronsdayoff.com and www.aaronsdayoff.co.uk
Poor guy - given the responsibility of carrying someone elses keys, the only place they could find to put theme was here? No wonder he looks so worried....
So the camping weekend went great (we avoided the bear attack on Friday night, probably more through luck and pure drunkeness than being prepared) - it was nice to hang out in the wilderness for a couple of days, with no cell phone or internet access. I'd definitely recommend it, especially since sometimes it feels like we're connected 24/7 for weeks on end. In fact, it was so good, we're planning it all again for Labo(u)r Day weekend. Let me or Heidi know if you're interested (and we actually know you of course - you didn't just randomly stumble across this blog....)
So it's ridiculously hot, so what better way to avoid the heat than head into the middle of the countryside, avoiding all air-con, and sleep in a tent for the night? Hmmm, that is the plan , but we're packing lots of ice (or is that heat) so we should be good. And after a brief scare involving fire bans and the thought of sitting around in the circle with no fire to look at, it turns out my geography of Colorado is poor enough that it doesn't affect us. So bring on the burning of marhsmallows - I'm ready......
I know everyone in England keeps telling me it's been warm back there, and they're having a heatwave, but here's the deal - I'm physically melting in Denver.
So if you fancy wasting away half a day (or a few minutes while wolfing down a sarnie at lunchtime like I did), this site is perfect. Lots of interesting stuff here, and some of it is even real. Of course, lots of random photoshopping as well, so don't ask me how to get hold of anything on this site (Heidi, that means you when you find the dinky little cars ;-)
Sorry for the downtime - I screwed up, and it took a while to get it fixed. I'll try and make sure it doesn't happen again.
As everyone knows, the photos that get used on primetime tv when you're the subject of some news item is never the one that you want. It ends up being the dodgy graduation photo, or some scary photo snap after you've had 5 margaritas by the pool. I know for a fact, my Nana would think that my graduation photo would be perfect for such a situation, but given the fact that I'm sunbed orange and wearing a silly hat (as well as about 40 pounds lighter than I am now), doesn't fill me with as much pride.
Or things like this could happen to you too.
So this thing looks like a lot of fun to me - can keep you entertained for hours, especially after 8 pints of Stella.
After all the depressing news yesterday, it's about time we started looking at the cool stuff again. And there isn't anything much cooler than a new baby entering into the world. For some reason, everyone seems to be "with child" this year - Heidi counted 18 of our friends and family who are due this year......
From the web, so you never know whether or not it's true, but funny all the same. Reminded me of my mother (sorry Mam!).
A woman called to make reservations, "I want to go from Chicago to Hippopotamus, New York" The agent was at a loss for words. Finally, the agent: "Are you sure that's the name of the town?" "Yes, what flights do you have?" replied the customer. After some searching, the agent came back with, "I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a Hippopotamus anywhere." The customer retorted, "Oh don't be silly. Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!" The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, "You don't mean Buffalo, do you?" "That's it! I knew it was a big animal!"
Through some very obscure entering of phrases, I can now find this blog in Google. Maybe my life's mission is complete now. Probably not - still got to get the Porsche, Ferrari, Caterham et al for the garage, and ensure the continuing success of the company (which hopefully will one day in the distant future) fund a car or two from the list.
I upgrade, pretty pain free as it turns out (with the help of 3 emails and a download from Sid). I even got my computer to run at it's clock speed, rather than the 1/3 performance XP want to run at for some unknown reason.
Continuing on the alcohol theme from a few posts ago, the definitive search engine for any drink you care to think of.
No-one ever told me I could get a train from Denver to London...
Hours of random fun, and memories of childhood when you were easily entertained.
And I think most of them are pretty relevant. Not that I spend much time in the bar these days, but it's always good to know the rules for when I go back.
Two hard drives, a battery, and a couple of attempts this week to try and drown her computer. If anyone needs one of these, it's Ruth.....
And this one will save Mr Wallace a couple of gigs in hard disk space from his home made "watch English TV in the US" system he set up. He can concentrate on The Bill and Eastenders now ;-)
