Happy (belated) Birthday to Me!

A bit over 3 weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday.  It has been the tradition for the last several years that Lindz and I would go out for sushi.  This birthday had an added bonus, it was my last official day doing construction.  And as an extra special bonus, we hit the happy hour pricing at Osaka!

As a thank you / going away present, my boss gave me a really beautiful smoker.

Mid-Week Humor

I’m trying to clean up my folders and I ran across a bunch of humorous memes and one pic.

a) This is true, and b) it’s even funnier if you’re from the Upper Mid-West

Actually, it’s in the oven at 60 degrees. Yes, I’m that big of a nerd to notice that.

Guts-and-Glory

I love Venn diagrams, so this made me give a nice audible snort. More can be found at Vennoid.

I feel that no explanation is necessary.

I’m Back! (well, kind of)

As promised, it’s September and I’m back to posting.  There will be an explanation coming soon (and a ton of photos) explaining why I’ve had no time/ambition to do much extra curricular activities in the last several months.  But in the meantime, here’s a really kick-ass going away present that I got from my boss.

I’m typing this up in the middle of the inaugural run, so expect a post about this as well.  😀
