Pretty cool that we have quite a few ePlayans in GP&E.

In 2012, when I arrived at the Gate myself, there was Smashy to receive me!

We got Smashy this year! Like some sort of eplaya prize, and better than a fireball!

As long as I'm there I'm signing up for perimeter next year. Did gate this year but it was fairly boring.
The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Gate can be a ton of fun, I am an Apex lead there, and it's a blast. it is, what you make it really.
I work mostly Perimeter, but, it's good to be "rounded", knowing how stuff works in other depts. too.
Let me know if you need any info or have questions.

Now, now , now calm down, Mister. I don't lurk. It is one of those insulting labels for non- participating "guests". I always log on and politely announce myself here in the community. I do so because I like and care about many of you and, of course to (quietly) keep track of you fuckos... (It's a dirty job. But someone has to do it!) Please don't call attention to me by name checking me in front of the entire internet.
Seriously, you know me to be a very shy, modest and retiring soul that can't possibly interact with you clever and glib bar people. I can barely rub a couple dry words together, (like a disgraced boy scout) to spark a sentence into some kind of coherent meaning; without ending up with a mouth full of ashes... (See, what I mean?)
Besides... About half of the crew is, or has lately been, afflicted with germs of an unknown variety. You people have been sharing drinks again, haven't you?

The important thing is this: know I wish you well.
Too bad my online voice is like a single fingernail on a blackboard.

I may not post very much but I enjoy your company immensely. So there!
Now... pay no attention to the little guy in the corner...

Love and Kisses,

GadMatt

Oooh. Patsh, a trailer ... do it! So cool! MyLarry lusts after bike trailers for his Harley. I just can't make the long rides anymore, back pinches and my leg goes numb.

All this bus talk makes me want to bust out a neglected project. I have a one inch scale model bus "dollhouse" I started and never finished. I should get on that over the winter, the figure out how to display it at camp. People would want to play with it, si it would need to be "under glass".

I was raised on cross-country drives when Dad was in the Navy and he changed coasts a few times. When I was a teen, my friend and I wanted to get a van and just trip across country. No thought of how we'd pay for it. But we were cute! She fell out of my life in 85, I was in the Navy and she was into the recreational life in LA. Miss her. And now I get my long drive fixes when I go on the truck with Larry. I can't drive, but I do love the road under my bum.

Yep under glass would be best. That reminds me of these guys:

Herring Kamp 1:87 scale Was a registered theme camp kept under glass in the B(o)(o)by Bar in 2007.

Oh yeah. I'm not so important that I get to work. The 866 info number has been inaccessible all day from when I woke up at six. Finally got through an hour or so ago. Nothing on it I didn't know. But since that's how we are supposed to know when to go back to work, I have to say, the system might be less than perfect. Speaking of which, one of the 7 things we were supposed to do today was fill out our time cards... People weren't able to get in because so many people were trying to access at once. Hundreds of thousands, maybe.
Went to the ferry building, had coffee, bought my last (probably) pluots of the year and my first persimmons. Took the ferry across the bay. Can't get on deck, so I didn't have the wind in my hair. *sniff* Dawdled a bit on the way home from Jack London Square. The elevator at 12th Street was out, so I had to go to 19th. Those are two of the more hidden BART elevators.
Took a nap.
Went to the library.

Have you ever seen the clip of a room full of mousetraps all carefully set with ping pong balls? Then they throw one ping pong ball down onto the mousetraps?
don't know why I thought of that.
