Julie took a couple pics of Josh and I working on the porch today. Josh still has to reconstruct, but I’ve got to go to work tomorrow. We did get the rotten floor joist replaced and the steps reattached before we called it a day.
There’s the rotten joist by my right elbow.
We’re going to try a new park for this Thursday’s Ultimate practice. Check it out here then zoom back. We had a nice game tonight, though the heat was amplified by the humidity and lack of breeze. Heh.
Tomorrow I’m helping Josh take his porch apart, repair and reassemble … or as far as we can get, I assume.
Did I mention that I finally found someone to trade me for this figure?
I’m still in Austin for training. Yesterday I spent most of the day working on lab exercises with some other students. We did grab lunch at Chuy’s Texmex and that was fun. At around 7 p.m. we called it a day and all went to go see “Howl’s Moving Castle.” As predictable as any Miyazaki film, in that it isn’t at all. I like the scarecrow, Turnip.
This morning I’m heading to a local church and then I’ll probably catch up on some regular work that I missed during training this week.
I got two photos from Michael Kilfoy of Studio X and posted them back here on the 6/1/05 post. I guess there’s a big version of one of them here, too. I don’t understand Blogger’s new image-uploading procedure (yet?) as well as the old one. 😦
Julie signed us up for Netflix and we just got the first three discs of Six Feet Under season three in the mail today.
We couldn’t use the shower until today, after re-caulking several spots Monday afternoon. We gave it more time to set up than the directions called for, yet it looks like it didn’t set up enough. Grrr. I have a feeling that one of the leaky spots might be a gasket that’s gone bad and not the caulk. No idea where to get a replacement for that piece, though.
I’m in Austin, TX, for some training. It stinks because I had to fly out Sunday and the classes don’t get started until 2 p.m. today. They had a last-minute change in schedule, but it was too late to change my travel arrangements. I have to stay here over the weekend too so I’m pretty bummed.
Last night I ate at Dave & Busters and got a $10 game card included with my meal. I played some VirtuaCop 3 and then went back to the hotel to finish some prerequisite material.
Today I ate at a local place, Pok-e-Jo’s BBQ, I like their banana pudding.
