Still Busy

Last night I left the office at 9:00pm, but at least this time I was able to crank out some future code [that schedule is not getting any longer…] rather than code necessary for CES. I’m hoping that the CES demo will be finalized today, in time for me to go to my 2:00pm optometrist appointment. Sadly my calendar has conspired against me, because the optometrist appointment I set up last December falls on the same day as my company’s Christmas party. I’ve been skipping the company Christmas party for the past seven years, but I decided to go this year. So now I’ll be driving to midtown this afternoon and will have to haul my ass back up to the Perimeter Mall area for the party after work. Dangen!

Let me know about your company party, I’d like to compare notes. 😉

Okay, time to make the software…

    One word: MARTA

    Stops both in Midtown and Perimeter Mall area, yo.

    My company does a luncheon here at work for our Christmas party – who the hell cares.
    As for Allan, City of Altanta, well, just guess, they get nothing.
    But – his part time job (Hyox) threw an awesome party at the Aquarium last saturday night, including a room at the Hyatt, a bus ride to & from the party, a party room at the hotel for after the aquarium & breakfast the next morning at the hotel.

    I need to make an eye doctor appt, maybe I’ll get that done today.

  3. Because my optometrist validates parking it’s actually cheaper for me to drive than to take MARTA — never mind immeasurably more convenient and enjoyable as well.

    Sounds like Hyox is a high-profit operation. 😉

    Barb, what is Allans’ part time gig? I just assumed it was bike related. Renting out the Aquarium is not a cheap party.

    I survived my first complete Sufferfest video of the trainer season last night. This might be a loooong winter because that thing kicked my butt. For any of you trainer riders, these are really worthwhile and make the time go reasonably quickly. $12 a download, quality video, good music (even if it’s not Tony Bennett) and on screen taunts/prompts. Fun.

    Hyox is a hyperbaric chamber – a medical office. Google it – it is really hard for me to explain, but if you go 45 feet below sea level and suck in straight oxygen your body reacts at a cellular level and things that won’t heal start healing. They need nurses & paramedics to be in the chamber during the dives in case there are problems, because you can’t just open it up. And, yes, the Doc that owns the place, he ain’t poor.

  6. Steve says:

    I learned a bit about hyperbaric chambers in my diving class.. how you better find one quick if you have an unexpected ascent from depth. Otherwise you get “the bends” and that ain’t pretty.

  7. Barb says:

    They don’t really deal with “the bends” here, because if you have waited until you got back to Atlanta, you’d be in bad shape. It is mostly wound care that won’t heal, lots of diabetics trying not to lose body parts, that sort of thing.
    and – sometimes carbon monoxide poisoning.
    But – it is right at Windy Hill hospital (so on the way home from the station) and 0700-1500. Not a bad gig at all.

  8. Steve says:

    You could dive Lake Lanier.. in a full dry suit.. if you don’t like to see what you’re diving in.

  9. Stacy Fox says:

    Do you really have to worry about the Bends at 45ft though (when regular SCUBA-diving that is)? I remember in my certifying that it usually takes much more than that. Or if you’re a dumbass and don’t exhale on your way up. 😉 Still, a hyperbaric chamber – interesting. In Googling to read more, I found one (pre-used) on sale for $1500. What a deal!

    From all the things I’m hearing from y’all, our company’s holiday party totally sucked. But, hey. I bet y’all didn’t have live animals at your gift exchanges!
