Hazy and foggy all am, overcast the rest of the day. Rained on the way to tmac and then stopped before I headed home.
No Lunch Trucks today, damn. I needed to eat my other evol dinner. I also built the first of the SP4 hotfixes, for Verizon.
Nelson Mandela died @ 95 today.
Out to Johns Creek for BOTM. I did stop in @ Pops and pick up a beer, then a couple of Creme Brule for Brian since they had some. Kate and Meg were working behind the bar so the scenery was very nice, I do love the banter that happens between the bartenders and the customers, very funny. John and his wife Katrina were there when I arrived, the regular regulars, Brian etc were in attendance as well. Many other faces I have seen before. The waitress who’s name I can’t recall that I took a photo of on Halloween with Peter was working as well. She was dressed as a Gypsy on Halloween.
Gulf Fritillary Egg
Stopped in at the Beverage Superstore on the way home, picked up a few new and special beers, one from He’Brew and another from New Belgium, then also a Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball. I talked with Dad on his cellphone, found out he HATES the thing since he can’t talk on it using the hands-free, can’t hear it and it doesn’t pick up his voice very well. Also, he had switched to the Uverse since the internet on AT&T has been so bad. Now all the phones are out and he is having trouble getting into his email.
Went home and watched the movie I picked up on Tuesday, Wolverine and drank up a deep cellar beer, the Brewdog Paradox Isle of Arran, nice mellow 10%+ stout aged in whiskey barrels.
Out on the trail again today, early. Spotted a box turtle and several different types of mushrooms. Saw a few chipmunks, three to be exact. And more mosquitoes and spiders, no snakes this time, it was earlier. Tried to get a photo of a jumping spider on a golfball.
Apple came out with the iOS 7 update today, got the iPad started first and after about 1.5 hours finally had the update downloaded on the MacBook through the SAP_Internet (the slow one for our “personal” use). I then updated the iPhone and didn’t get finished with that until about 4pm. No trouble at all, everything updated and rebooted just fine. My first thoughts are that I really don’t like many of the “visual” changes, it looks flatter and a lot brighter. Some of the differences between the iPhone and iPad show they clearly are more interested in the iPhone market, I can see why but don’t understand why the code isn’t more interchangeable.
I worked on merging the aspx files for our CPR website, should be finished by tomorrow.
Went out to the Johns Creek Mac for BOTM, used my mall of ga list, over 1221 now. Saw the fellas there, John (divorced, glasses) and Brian the fitbit dude. Found out today the Brian has lost almost 100lbs in the last year. He should be dropping down blow 200 this weekend he says. Kate, Chantel and Ray where working tonight and I asked about Meg and Tommy only to find out they work on Saturday and Sunday last week after they got back from vacation.
It was getting dark by the time I headed out of there, only 7:30pm, fall is coming. Getting home I just watched the last 5 episodes of Cougar Town, these are the oldest shows, 2009 still very funny. Didn’t get to taking photos of the beers I got tonight, two Mikkellers a Stout and a Porter.
It continues to be overcast this morning.
I hit the snooze multiple times and was in and out of a cool dream where I was with a HOT gal who was driving my S2000 and making out with me. Very odd dream, I kept trying to get back into it so I could manipulate what was happening but just couldn’t do it. 🙂 Brian came upstairs to ask if I was going to work about the time I got up, around 8am, he left about 30 minutes before me. Nicki was pulling up at the house about the time I was leaving the garage, she has a doctor appointment today, so no work.
I started on another issue today at work, mostly I just got the device figured out and then I messed around with some WordPress stuff. Changed the theme on my Blog, then had to try and fix all the things it broke. Needed to change the way it got the tagline in the header.php, changed to use bloginfo() instead of get_bloginfo() which doesn’t allow filtering it. I still haven’t figured out what is wrong with the rotating headers plugin to change the photo displayed in the header.
After work, it was almost just mostly cloudy instead of ALL cloudy. I put the top down but it was just a bit too chilly for that really. Stopped in at Pop’s and picked up a few new beers, well I thought I had, Got a third bottle of Jailhouse Hard Time Barleywine and then a six pack of Victory Storm King Stout and a Belhaven Scottish Stout. I already had a Hard Time but I didn’t check and had forgotten. Started todays BOTM at John’s Creek and sat with the Engineering dude, Harold? and another Chancellor – the older guy (like I’m not) who is almost always there, he works very close to the area. Found out that Alyssa is only 24, damn. Talked about the Cummings T-Mac and decided that I need to get there sometime soon.
After having a Terrapin 10th Anniversary Belgian and then a Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA I just went straight home and watched some TV, a few Big Bang Theory episodes and before that the 3rd Predator movie.
Sad day today, two musicians died, Greg Ham from Men at Work, and the drummer from the group the Band
