power? we don't need no stinkin' power

well, got power back at around 4AM after losing it in the aftermath of Ike blending with another low pressure front all right beside that damned high pressure shit from the south (damn, you, South!) power went down around 1:40PM on Sunday. So really, not too bad for Ohio having the equivalent of a tropical storm (almost, anyway - sustained winds at 30-40MPH, gusts upwards to 75MPH) No rain, thank god, because well, no sump pump - don't need to toss a shitload of food as well as pump out the basement again. And we didn't lose water or have a boil advisory.

Issues pointed to my employer's total lack of disaster recovery plans - absolutely pathetic response from the company on a whole - certain individuals did a great job, but ugh... leadership needs to get a clue.

2 giant trees in the front yard remained mostly intact - only lost a few limbs, and did no structural damage to the house - pretty much all the neighbors lost shingles, siding, or shutters - we got off lucky in that regard.

Anyway... back to the clean-up. Assuming cable is stable, which it appears to be, I should be somewhat back on-line-ish once more. Arrrg!

so like, baby...

work has been sucking away my soul... also my health. Had the flu recently - it was a steaming pile if coughing and fever, or something like that. In fact, I'm going to be doing more work tonight, in preparation for tomorrow, which will be in preparation for the next day. After that, thankfully, nothing major going on until the 2nd.


Talking to a few people at work about starting some jam sessions, mostly as stress relief, but also because I think we'd be good.

I like Puzzle Pirates. It is fun. Play it, join my crew, or I'll kill you and take all your stuff, because like, that's what pirates do.

For those who missed the semi-obvious, we're expecting boy #4 sometime around July.

Yes, he will be THE LAST KID WE HAVE. Because like, yeah... 4 kids. wtf?

We have two pies right now. Guess what I'm going to have for a snack... oh yeah... probably popcorn.... wait...

I wore this shirt today... it was too small... as if my arms got longer. Is that even possible?

I have decided to kill myself by playing La Villa Strangiato on bass until I explode.

I almost exploded 3 nights ago.

To quote:

[22:17] MFS> I can't believe you wouldn't make the list.
[22:17] MFS> slacker
[22:17] MFS> :P
[22:17] FernGully> I'm the worst
[22:19] MFS> my LJ entries are made of pie.
[22:20] MFS> fine fine... real update coming
[22:22] FernGully> I will hold you to this
[22:22] FernGully> my room is insanely cold.
[22:26] MFS> I am writing the update now.

so yeah... Fern should totally make a list of all the Word of the Day posts.

My wife and I like to log in on Ryan and Matt's webkinz accounts and battle each other on some of the different games... mostly on Goober's Lab... yeah... we're dorks.

Alex is cute.

Soon, the cat in our garage will be allowed to escape as the weather is becoming warmer again. This is a good thing because, well, cat poop is stinky, even with a clean litter box. Pheweee...

I have 2G of RAM sitting next to me. I really feel like it should be in a computer doing something useful, like making pies.

i nEed mOer caPhfEEne!
