It's nice outside....really nice.

The rains are back in town. It's really beautiful outside even though it's a grey sky. I like that weather. Perfect for a really hot cup of tea, a blanket and a book. As luck would have it, I have to make mortgage payments every month so I can't do the whole tea-blanket-book thing. No Sir. Instead here I am in a greyish cube facing one of the cube walls and typing away. There is so much to write about work but it's getting to be too dangerous to blog about your professional life. So I continue to refrain from typing stuff that might get misconstrued and get me into trouble.

Has anyone seen Spaceballs? I think it's a great movie. I still enjoy it even though I've seen it at least a hundred times. It definitely makes it to my all time favorites list. There's a sentence in there that goes ".... unbeknownst to the Princess but knownst to us .... ", which is a hilarious jab at the complicated English word.

This weekend was socializing weekend. Went to a lunch get-together and then the previous night, this friend of mine finished his last class for the semester so he wanted to celebrate that. We went to BW3 for his celebration. We got a very moody waitress who didn't like us initially but decided sometime after we ordered the main course, that we were decent enough people who would actually pay the bill and not try to make a run for the door.

The major achievement last week was the completion of the deck. Pictures shall be posted soon. If you remember from this post, we were trying to decide which deck to build and everyone overwhelmingly voted for Deck B. Well we got a variation of Deck B built and you shall see that in the picture. Possibly tomorrow. It's come out beautiful and it's made of composite, not pressure treated lumber. There were some ideas that the deck builder himself came up with and that helped quite a bit.

And lastly, home improvements continue. Another round of seeding in the backyard just before Fall hits. That'll get the backyard all straightened out for the season. I can't believe summer is about to get over next month. I wish winter got over this quick but nooooooo ... winter has to last for six months and goes away very very slowly as if it's aching to stay a little bit longer. This is why I try to find positive things in global warming because if we can figure out how to live with the temperature being 10 degrees warmer overall and the ice caps melted away, then we might not have to deal with snow ever again. For people who haven't lived in snowy regions, you don't know what a pain it is to clear your car and/or your driveway. You also don't know what it feels like when you pinch your ear and you can't feel it. And lastly, it's hard to use the restroom quickly when you have to deal with your seven-layer clothing salad everytime.

Spaceballs is okay if you don't have to watch it every evening for a month.;-)

Looking forward to seeing the finished deck project. (Glad to have helped...)
Having spent a majority of my life in snow country, I can completely understand the cold issue. In MY case, it was standing outside waiting for the bus (way back when...) with wet hair in 10 degree (or less) weather...it's amazing how fast hair freezes. Who needs gel?
