Tuesday Morning Laundry Club

A break from the routine today as I blog from my favorite lavanderia on this unseasonably nice morning with low humidity. Why am I doing laundry now?

Last night I did something good and something bad. With my boss back in town I convinced myself to head over to LA Fitness after work and do one of my weight training circuits : GOOD! (I actually only did about 90% of the circuit since I am dropping one leg exercise until the foot is healed and time didn’t permit me to wait around for a machine to open up in order for me to complete me upper-body routine.) From LA Fitness my boss and I headed to Taco Mac where I promptly threw away most of the benefits gained from the workout : BAD! Not all is lost, however, as my muscles are rather sore today and shall be burning a minute amount of calories repairing themselves.

Baby steps.

So now I find myself doing the laundry task slated for last night, choosing to hit the lavanderia in the comfort of the morning air instead of the heat of a late-July afternoon. This is one of the benefits of being a salaried employee.

I saw this guy/gal attached to my house this morning. Perhaps it’s colorblind?

Is Putting Erroneous Information On Wikis A “Thing”?
After watching my daily episode of “The Office” [S5E18 — “Blood Drive”] I went to Dunderpedia to read more about the episode.

Dunderpedia? Oh, that’s a wiki for “The Office.”
Wiki? Oh come on now…

Anyway, someone has edited this episode’s information incorrectly stating that this episode “originally aired on March 5, 2012 on HBO.” You don’t have to be some kook who is watching the entire series, in order, one episode a day, from beginning to end to know that:

A – Season 5 did not air in 2012 (the correct answer is 2009)
B – “The Office” did not air on HBO (the correct answers NBC)

The are not obscure facts. Is is a “thing” now to purposely out erroneous information into wiki pages?

And before you suggest it, I just might create a Dunderpedia account so that I can fix this. Yes, I am that anal retentive.

Getting Nervous
I find myself doing a lot of reading in order to prepare for this Advanced iOS Programming course coming up in a little ore the two weeks. However, I am not doing much actual programming and feel that I am going to be “book smart” and un able to perform. I am paying for this course and its not (directly) a job interview so I should just enjoy the experience but in some way I feel as if this the start of my audition for my “next career step.”

    I’m not sure it’s a good idea to put the additional pressure of “job interview” on top of the class. The first goal should be just go to the class and learn as much as you can. Make good contacts with the folks that run the joint, and then consider whether to proceed. If you don’t do well in the class, the “interview” might be moot.

    The driveway “exit sensor” has died. A replacement is almost $200, but another button was only $40. I’m going to put a fencepost up that will hold the button, and I’ll be able to get out with my bike, and drivers will have to push the button as well. A simple solution.

    Off to cut the Ben Hilton in EP tonight. Oh. What. Fun.

    Still no menu decisions…

    I can bring pickles, (that I won’t eat), but others might enjoy.
    Why don’t we all just bring a piece of meat (or if you are Trick a non meat meat)& a side?

    One of my friends said he & his friends put some false stuff on their small home town Wiki page & one day when they got some new industry coming to town, some of that false info (a museum that didn’t exist) was in the press release. It was good for lots of laughs.

    That’s a luna moth, the difference between males and females is the antennae, but I can’t really see them in the picture. They are very common but you don’t see them much, they only live one week as an adult.

    I actually got up this morning and ran…boy was it worth it. I can’t believe this weather. Let’s all enjoy it while it lasts.

    Good on you for getting to the gym, even if you went to TM afterwards. At least you didn’t go straight to TM. I’m sure you are dying to get that boot off so you can do some cardio.

    At work I have an objective to complete that has some high level executive interest. I am actually going to training next week to learn the new product I have to roll out. I really hope I can learn the product and not screw it up, no pressure.

    My friend who was up from Florida for our horse “camp” and I had a private tour of the Botanical Gardens yesterday. Her brother works there and did a lot of work on the initial installation of the giant topiary sculptures. It was pretty neat!

    I lived through a mostly internet-free weekend, but wow the lack of sleep and then all day out in the sun and heat was brutal. I’m feeling rather sickly today. 🙁

    Looking forward to SSS#2! Barb, I like your idea of everyone bringing something for the grill and a side. I’ll make appetizers and a desert – without coconut this time!

  6. Barb says:

    I don’t know about the last coconut thing, but I’m NOT a fan, so I’m good with no coconut!

    We will probably bring some steaks & I’ll have to think about a side.
    maybe a pasta salad – I’ve got lots of pesto these days.

  7. Steve says:

    Ummm pesto!! Sounds lovely.

  8. Martha says:

    Oh I forgot to mention something that happened while Maggi and I were riding at Silk Sheet on Saturday. We were riding next to each other, chatting away…we see a car up ahead, it happens to be a police car (I cannot remember which juristiction), over his loud speaker he yells at us that we need to ride single file. Are you kidding me?? I was irked, not irked enough to call him out or chase him down but irked none the less. Isn’t the law you can’t ride more than two abreast? Am I wrong? For the record there were no cars behind us at the time.

  9. Barb says:

    Martha – sounds like a just a cop that doesn’t know the law. Probably gets lots of complaint calls about the bigger group rides that take up the road & don’t move over for cars.

  10. Steve says:

    He’s full of $hit.

    (b) Persons riding bicycles upon a roadway shall not ride more than two abreast except on paths or parts of roadways set aside for the exclusive use of bicycles.

  11. Well it was two women, does that make it four abreast? ***ducks***
