By the way...
I have not forgotten that I promised to write testimonials. Unfortunately I have done very little except eat, sleep, travel, and work the last two weeks...a lot too much eating, to little sleeping, and nigh zero exercising.

This has not been my favorite two weeks.

Oh, and my practice director--who I love, mind you, it's just that sometimes be a total jerk while meaning to be humorous--observes me busting my ass-hyperfocsed on this ##%)(*#)%* code--one day last week and is like "Oh, hey, nice to see you working for a change."

If I wasn't so damn busy, I could've smacked him...or cried...

So many things to blog about--I'm going to have to rely on prettypammie...Quinn has been doing and saying many cute things that deserve recording. If I were him, though, I'd be pretty ticked with my dad for ignoring me so much lately. * sigh *

Sleep...much overdue sleep...not going to get a lot of it tonight.

Today (technically yesterday):

  • Food--lots [Cracker Barrel], among other sins;

  • Stress--lots [C#, ADO.NET, and DataSet/DataView abstraction];

  • Exercise--none;

  • Woke up--In Virginia;

  • Went to Sleep--In New Jersey (or, technically, not at all, yet);

  • Frustration--Very High

volunteer gig--because--in the scheme of things--it hasn't been that many hours (I think I've well earned my '06 comp already, though...must...complete...timesheet...)

but...well, I should have liked to do a better job at it--I hope you're not disappointed with the sub-par sales.

At my debrief, (A'04,) they gave me a "time sheet." In this case, palmwiz had one printed out on 11x17 paper. ("And make sure you don't miss anything.") That made for a good laugh.
Thanks for all you've done thus far. I'm sure things will turn out well.

It sounds like the person just needs to be smacked upside the head with a clue-by-four for that badly timed attempt at humor.

I love him too much and he means well; he just sometimes puts his foot in his mouth.

He's been killer busy, too, for that matter, and travelling so much that between our two schedules we've hardly SEEN each other...

awww.
Big HUG. I've been in a much less high key state of business... but I've been thinking about you. Been a while since we talked. (online, phone or in person) Miss you - but knew you've been crazy busy. (rather than just crazy ;) )
Hope things soon calm down a little for you.

I don't think you've met her and her family - they haven't been going to cons much. I suggested you go to their praty last year, but you were busy. I'm sure you'd be welcome and it's a very kid friendly group, so Quinn would have a blast.

When people do things like that I always think happy thoughts about a ball-peen hammer and knee-caps. But maybe that's just me. 8-)

"Oh, hey, nice to see you working for a change."

Sounds like badly executed sarcasm to me; could've meant "Why the hell don't you *go home* for a change?"

Hope things are better; hope to see you sometime soonish. Not this coming week; I'm taking my sons to visit their grandparents in LA. Next week, maybe?

Hugs to Q, Pam, yerself.

best,

Joel.
