sorry ygmir, I was distracted by shiny things (messages). Did you guys remember it's been 13 weeks since...one day at a time.

Hot chocolate with a splash of Rumple Minze, it is.

Now, no more messages, I'm jumping in the tub.

What are we doing up this early for, ygmir?

Coffee smells good. I'll have some of that, please.

Made some muffins last night. Can a put a plateful by your coffee pot?

Thanks for rescuing the muffins, Sputnik.

Yeah, ygmir the sun's up here - has been a couple hours! Guess it's time to make up for two days of rain. Looks like the sky is clear I might get some painting done today.

nice find Sputnik
How's things today?

I have a "staff BBQ" to attend, with a gardening/planter company I'm a partner in....dang, I hate those things........
of course, the staff is only about 6 people, but, with family and friends, and, the hippies that wander by and stop for food and drink........

I'm hoping to find a cardboard cutout of me and just lean it against a tree and sneak out......

Ygmir, that is brilliant......i need to do that so i can get more clown free sleep.


i need one like this, life-sized so i can lean it up against the stage and go have a smoke every now and then without anyone knowing i've snuck out the back door.

my cigar is always lit you know.....or is that a pipe.....i get confused


would somebody hand me a playbill please, this compartmentalized monologue can be a REAL bitch to follow sometimes, even if you make it up as you go along.

Have fun with the kids at the Ren Faire - sounds like a fun day.

Thanks for the coffee, ygmir, I'm off to finish by fibreglas gel coat job. Putting in a good word for no more rain for a couple days, please.

See y'all later

Yeah, well, thanks Deb.......I'm different when it's a bunch of friends, or, hopefully friends, (meet and greet style),

but, at these, since I'm a part owner, people are falsly nice........sucking up, as such, thinking it matters.......
I know some don't give a shit about my opinions, etc. but, pretend to when they ask something, or, tell me how excited they are to make the company a success (we're still waiting to turn the profit corner, 1st year and all).........
Then, I gotta be nice and pretent I believe them.....dang.......hahahaa,
it's a fun game, I suppose........

Truth is, though, that I'm a mostly "silent" partner for a reason:
if I go to a job site and someone is screwing off or not doing their job, I send 'em packing........get the hell out, as such.....so, they don't send me to job sites anymore........my partner, is nicer that way, but, work goes awfully slow under his watch......so, I just stay clear.......

My partner is right, in his wise comment:
"Just because you work that hard, doesn't mean everyone else can or will........"

true, I say.......so, I do the "behind the scenes" stuff to keep the company going......

Ha, ygmir, I know exactly what you mean.

Many's the time I've been in that kind of a spot too. Your partner might be right but it's painful to watch the work go slow. I've been told it takes ten people to keep up to me but I don't do the niceties very well in all cases.

That's why you need the partner and he needs you. Good luck with your business plan. It's nerve-racking to have yourself out on the line like that.

And the cardboard cutout's not such a bad idea either.

it is always the ones who are rarely seen that work the hardest.


a clean spotless desk means you have WAY TOO MUCH FUCKING TIME ON YOUR HANDS.....

if you organize your paperclips, you are doomed.


maybe thats why we get along, you and I, norse gods, and robot-men that we are, for we both know the feeling of watching over others so that they can be successful and safe.

it is very rewarding in it's own way, and the simple smile you get when someone says thanks is pure manna from hell, i mean heaven, oh, whatever.

that's been my M.O. my entire life.


ok, off we go, i only stopped in to sip coffee with my friends, but now i'm off to cartoon land, which in my case is our local public market.

it's the only place in rochester where over a 100 different languages are spoken at once.

god, i just love recent immigrants, they are so cute when they realize how free they are, or at least have the opportunity to be.

i think we already are, but we just don't know it yet, or maybe we are just coming to that realization on our own through divine intermenschen.

Good Mornin'

Well progress on PF is moving right along!

Should be completed sans lights we have to order by tuesday or wednesday!


Hi Deb Ygmir Sputnik and "I know who you are harmless Socky" Adam!


I think I probably could use a dose of my early early waking pattern. Hasnt been happening lately...probably due to going to bed dog ass tired!

Hmmm...coffee or hot chocolate and rumple mintz.... decisions....decisions..

Today we were going to work our butts off...but an emergency need for a ladder or two at the BWB here in Draino...sends us off to set up for party. Will probably only stay long enough to be of help then poof!

*a burst of smoke appears in the center of The Bar*

*from over in a corner of The Bar*
I am the terror that flaps ......

DAMN IT!!! I'VE GOT TO GET THAT THING RECALIBRATED!!!

*brushes off some dirt and weeds*

Oh well. Hey did I hear something about lots of hot dry weather?!?! How bout y'all just sent that over here to the east coast, gettin out hay crops in this year has been a BITCH! Out of the past two months I thinks we've had a grand total of about two weeks of non-rainy days, and the most they ever came in was about a three day stretch.

Sorry I haven't stopped in in a while I've been trying desperately to keep up with everything here in defaultia and failing miserably I think. Normally here things turn hot and dry (but humid as hell) and when you pull weeds in the garden they just wilt. This year, however, we've had so much rain they keep re-rooting themselves. I think I've pulled the same weeds about a dozen times already. I finally gave up and started putting Ag-Bag plastic down. We have enough of it and all it ever does is accumulate so I figured it may as well be used for something.

*grabs a glass of mead and downs it*

Well hopefully putting that plastic down will give me a little time that I can jump on now and again.

*runs around spraying WD-40 on all of YG's known entrances glances at the fem-bot*

well at least there's something around here that I don't have to worry about lubricating :wink:

*grabs a handful of playa dust and throws it down hard at his feet creating a playa dust cloud. upon settling Jet Set is gone*
