I haven’t been paying attention to the WCH in this exhibition round. I could be useful and look up some stuff about it. Or…I could not because you already know it.
Let’s be honest: you don’t really need anything written right here, you just need a place to start a conversation at our virtual water cooler.
As we get into the season, I won’t be as lazy. Maybe. I hope.
Here, have a basket of Corgis.
My day so far has been putting things off for another day. Weee!
Sounds like a great plan!
Until later this week when I complain that I have too much work to do!
Had a good weekend. Spent some time with friends on Saturday burning some brush, getting drunk. You know the typical out in the sticks New England Saturday. Sunday I spent the day watching football, playing some more Pokemon go and recording on my favorite podcast. Work, work and more work on tap today
BTW anyone interested in meeting up at the BIG E on oct 1st?
What’s the BIG E? (And I’ll still be in Germany anyway)
What’s the BIG E?
You might as well ask “What is America?”
ITS THE BEST FOOD EVENT….in the world.
Its basically a state fair for all of new england. it has other things like 4-H competitions, carnival rides, infomercial consumer products, but i mostly just eat and drink.
Cant forget the generic amusement park rides!
Are they called “Ferris Wheel” and “Roller Coaster”?
Pretty much. They’re the rides that can be quickly set up & stuff
“fun house”…”house of mirrors”…”the scrambler”…”gravatron”
I forgot and scheduled a weekend roadtrip that for that time I guess I thought it ran longer.
road trip through the big e?
Ah, I wish. We’ll be in Philly Friday night. IW could possibly represent because I’m going with Phony.
Went to Newport this weekend to housesit an old friend, Stewart. I was hoping he had mellowed out (he’s 8 or 9) and would be walkable. That dog tried to kill me 6 out of 7 walks. He’s sweet but deadly. That leash cut into my palm every time.
Anyway, I feel like I was dropped in an alternate timeline version of Newport. Everything was so different. It makes me want to do research to make a map to document each and every business that has been in each location since 1980 or so.
Morning all. Landlord is doing some much needed updates to my apartment soon. Yay!
Good Morning All! I’m feeling especially chipper this morning! (don’t worry, that’ll change.)
Had a great day Saturday. Took Jo’s Mom to Newport and hung out with Stripes Mom. Had a great lunch at Coddington Brewery with GH and IW.
Also, Jo revealed her birthday present for my 60th (December 30th). She’s taking me to the Bruins – Sabres at the Gahden on the 31st (a 1pm game) and we have a hotel room close to the arena. She wanted to let me know early in case any B2Bers want to join the revelry.
Saturday evening Jo and I took her Mom home to CT and drove to Charlemont, MA so we could be up early to raft the Dryway section of the Deerfield with friends. I’m training to paddle that section in my kayak so a preview of the rapids from the relative safety of a raft is always good. Afterwards, we drove downstream a piece and kayaked the Fife Brook section of the Deerfield (my training grounds). Dinner with friends and home to bed after that as we were completely exhausted.
How long winded can you get on a Monday morning? This tired me out enough to send me back to bed!!!
Coffee!!!! (after a nap).
That’s a great birthday present! We should definitely meet up!
Oh yeah. I’m a season ticket holder, so if there are games any of you are looking to go to, check in with me. 9th row balcony in the corner of the B’s shooting end.
I will look at the schedule. Would be interested in buying again.
I get first dibs!
Brian (the Habs fan I locked in the portapotty at the Winter Classic) has dibs on the first home game against the Habs. He’s a masochist.
I’m pretty sure he’s only going so he can punch Therrien in the face.
The one he wants to punch is Bergevin.
Sell him Seat 1P (the portapotty)!
Who gave you first dibs…psh what do you think you are…family or something?
Oh, and if you don’t want a pair of tickets, you could buy one ticket and go with me!
I’ll take the pair.
Will definitely be looking at the schedule.
We had a good time. I will drive your collective moms to Vegas!
I hate that I always fall for the adorableness of corgis.
I slept like crap last night. I am so tired right now.
Had dinner and drinks with friends at Bukowski’s in Inman square on Saturday. Much needed fun time.
Oh yeah! Bukowski’s! Another cool thing to do when I move back!
I was going to walk out of my job this morning, but the dickhead manager who’s being a dickhead is away for two weeks on training, so I get to live in peace.
How ’bout them Pats?
I should write a World Cup of Hockey preview.
I’m out of bourbon, but that’s good because it’s one less bottle to move.
I feel like a lot of football games were won/lost this weekend over really bad play calling and decision making.
I wish my dickhead manager was away for two weeks. I was sat down on friday by my boss to basically tell me that she was being told that i was being difficult to work with and i needed to work faster and stop questioning decisions that my lead and her make or she can bring in someone else to do the work that isn’t from a satellite office.
My boss has been in the organization for a year max and the lead for 3 maybe and this is his first role of being put in charge of anything, ive been in the group for 5 years and know what the hell im talking about. When i ask him a question of how to proceed all i get is a look of deer in headlights. Evidently asking him for his direction on how to go forward is being argumentative. Yeah. thanks. Way to blame me for your problems.
Uh…get your resume out. Yikes.
I’m in a weird headspace today ’cause I had psyched myself up for walking out, but now I don’t need to.
yeah, i’ve been meaning to do that, sadly hard to do interviews when you are away from the state for 2 months. I have a feeling that she is just horrible at people management and she trys to rule with intimidation instead of with respect, no one likes her. NO ONE. so i feel like its an empty threat, but I do not react well to threats and it is only going to make me more of an asshole.
I thought about turning in everything i currently have to my lead and be like…heres my stuff i’m done ahead of time. You wanted it done fast, here you go. P.S. its a piece of shit because you don’t want me to do a good job and get it done right the first time. Have fun reviewing it.
I have to be my own dickhead manager. Life is tough.
Being out of bourbon is unforgivable!
I will quickly be not out of bourbon as soon as I get back to Boston!
