Saturday Morning Coffee #133

That's one week I'm happy to wrap up and put a bow on.

Ended up in Mobile, but I had to drive right by the house to get here, so I grabbed up Mrs B and dragged her along. Haven't seen her in quite some time.
Now here we are Saturday morning; I've finally gotten a couple good nights sleep, and Willie is playing my other song.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Damn. It's almost Turkey Day isn't it?
Miss B will arrive in a few days. We're going to need to stop by someplace on the way home today and pick up a turkey and some fixin's.

Mrs B makes a mean carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I caught some bits and pieces of the Bamster's immigration speech this week.
Local opinion (derived from conversations in the hotel lobby) is that he's dictating laws directly from the office of the president.
aaaaaaaand the apathy's so thick you could swim in it.

No one seems to have the time to give a shit about it.

Sad Daddy is sad.

Sunday morning sleep-in #112

STILL working my ass off.

Just wrapped up my 4th 14-hour day.
Rained all damn day. No heavy downpour, no light mist, just heavy enough to be annoying as hell and to make sure you're thoroughly soaked by the end of the day.

Miserable Daddy is miserable.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why do I push myself like this?

My annual bonus comes in this month.

Mrs B wants a 60-inch flatscreen.
Maybe after she's done with my bonus check, I'll have enough left over for a couple boxes of ammo.

It's all about the Benjamins.

Saturday Morning Coffee #132

Still working my ass off.

Got lucky and found knit caps for sale at the gas station where I stopped for coffee. They were the most beautiful knit caps I've ever seen.

Jealousy

Not only did Miss B get a Jayne hat at Nekocon...

She got a Blue Sun T-shirt as well.




I raised me a little Browncoat.

Proud Daddy is proud.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Meanwhile I'm stuck on a major project and working outdoors through the weekend.

Temps yesterday morning were around 34 F and windy, with a sprinkling of sleet to keep things interesting. This morning it's 29 F, but it's supposed to get all the way up to 40 by this afternoon.
We're in a big refinery, so that nice Carhartt winter coat of mine is useless because it won't fit under my fire retardant coveralls. You can bet your sweet bippy my half-frozen ass was out buying thermal underwear as soon as I got out of there last night.

Fuck. My. Life.
This is Alafuckingbama for chrissake! We're not supposed to see weather like this until the last week of January!
You can't find a knit cap or balaclava around here for love or money. Everyone is sold out.

Nope

No Hump Day Rule 5 post...no posts at all for that matter...

Right now the plan is to work through the weekend to make things come together.

Personally, I think that whenever you've gotten to the point where you're planning weekend work, it can only get worse from there.


So...things are going to be quiet here for a few more days. I'll be on the road a lot, but I'll be sure to keep a bible on the dash.

The 100th Remembrance Day


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Jeez. That means Tuesday is my day.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A very cunning hat


Miss B is at NekoCon this weekend.
I think it's cartoons or something. The weirdness never ends...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Admit it. You're singing it now...
