Morning Blogging From La Lavanderia

I worked until 10pm last night trying to get a feature working (I did) and trying to help the Android team get their version of the feature working (they did). By day’s end I was spent — perhaps that’s what a fourteen hour workday does to a 48 year old.

Because of my late night in the office I spent no time doing laundry, which is why I find myself at the lavenderia this morning.

My friend Dave has a six-rotor copter to which he attaches a camera and takes aerial shots with. I keep waiting for him to post the photos that he took last Saturday morning.

Another Busy Day
It’s going to be another busy day with laundry, old man health issues you won’t care to know about, another demo this afternoon, a lovely dinner with ITP-Reader Barb and friends, and finishing the night at Terminal West for the Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger show (I’d given you links to the venue and the band if I could have gotten TextExpander to work inside the 1Password browser through which I am making this post).

Cheers,
Paulie [eatl/ga]

    Congrats on getting the demo running. I know how frustrating something like that can be.

    Debbie made it to the pool store the other day and we have started to wage chemical warfare on the black plague in the pool. I don’t know what the outcome will be, but we are giving it the good fight.

    The painters that did the nice job on the house, did a crappy job pressure washing the pool deck. If you do a job like that and go “uphill”, where do you think the dirty water goes? That’s right, back over the cleaned parts. So I re-did a lot of their work last night. What. Fun.

    Starting to think of what to pack for 2 weeks away… guess I better start!

    Oh, Cisco announced the entertainment for the big party- Lenny Kravitz and Image Dragons? OK- I have heard of Lenny Kravitz and apparently MTV thinks a lot of the other band.

    Worth our time?

    How about a hopefully lovely dinner? you haven’t eaten it yet….. LOL

    Decided to go for a bike ride with Canucklehead & Toothless Beaver (Ryan & Michelle) last night, they recently moved into a house right near the Chattahoochee River. (and it is up a very steep hill, which really, really sucked to get back to the car at the end of the ride). Had a few beers on their deck after, Bob even joined us after his “group” ride, which we found out his definition of group is 2. (it was really funny last night).

    We might have to make these rides a weekly thing, it was a good time.

    Steve – I don’t know much about Imagine Dragons, but the few songs I’ve heard I thougth were ok.

    We have Rhinoshield people coming out on Thursday afternoon for an estimate, we are going to get a regular paint estimate as well to see what the price difference is.

  5. Steve says:

    Rhinoshield is like aluminium siding? I’ve never heard of it…

  6. Barb says:

    no, its like some sort of solid type of surface paint, I think. Its supposed to last 25 years. I’m really not sure. I’ll have to read up on it on their website.

    Where is the emoticon with a tongue sticking out?

    group (gro̅o̅p)
    n.
    1. An assemblage of persons or objects gathered or located together
    2. Two or more figures that make up a unit or design, as in sculpture.
    3. A number of individuals or things considered together because of similarities
    a. A military unit consisting of two or more battalions and a headquarters.
    b. A unit of two or more squadrons in the U.S. Air Force, smaller than a wing.
    4. A class or collection of related objects or entities, as:
    a. Two or more atoms behaving or regarded as behaving as a single chemical unit.
    b. A column in the periodic table of the elements.
    c. A stratigraphic unit, especially a unit consisting of two or more formations deposited during a single geologic era.

    See! 2 people CAN be a group 🙂 We did get a real good 25 mile ride in though. Good to see you guys for post ride beers.

    Count me in for the weekly rides! Tour de Cure training and baseball practice are almost over so I will have some week nights freed up. Paulie, dust off your bike and join us!

  8. C’mon, everyone knows two is “company”, three is a “crowd”.

    In the office now, still suffering a bit and completely aggravated by the hole at my big toe in my right-foot sock. You’d think with all of the clean pairs I paired up I would have grab new ones to put on. I ain’t too bright sometimes.

    Imagine Dragons and Lenny Kravitz, interesting pairing. I think each will perform well.

    Hey! My new lens arrived! If I can remember to charge the battery in the Nikon V1 I should try it out at LEAF this weekend.

    Busy morning. I picked up a ‘stray’ dog out of SW atlanta after the gym today. Poor little thing, just COVERED in fleas, bit patches of missing fur…all that you would expect from serve neglect. She’s been bathed and medicated and is now just sleeping, she’s whooped!

    Otherwise, I got nothing…it’s been a slow week.

  10. Steve says:

    Martha, you took in said stray? You have a good heart.

    It will cost to get Debbie into the show, but they are also having some sort of “halftime” show between bands. Normally the show is pretty worthwhile- last time in Lost Wages, besides the music, they had Cirque du Soliel performing some of their tricks- Cisco is not afraid to shell out the bucks.

  11. Steve says:

    $195!!! Holy crap! I thought there was a “party only” ticket, but maybe not.

  12. Jenka says:

    Steve, where are you going on vacation? I feel like this is some obvious thing that I don’t know about since I don’t follow the biking world.

    Okay, I’ve been letting the grammar go because it’s too nit-picky, but I just can’t ignore this one: “… six-rotor copter to which he attaches a camera and takes aerial shots with.” I don’t care about dangling participles but either say, “copter he attaches a camera to and takes aerial shots with” or “copter to which he attaches a camera and with which he takes aerial shots.” Either way, just needs to be consistent.

    Fourth full day of sitting on my ass. At this point I’m hoping I can get to work on Friday. The main issue is that my car is a standard shift so I need both feet to drive.

  13. Steve says:

    Jenka, besides being involved in the Highland Games, I’m also a bike race official and there is a big multi-day race in California that starts Sunday. It’s vacation from the office, and they pay me to be a judge, but it’s still a bit of work. Then there is a Cisco trade show in SF right after the race which I’m attending.

    Did I miss that you are somehow injured? Do you need an automatic? Maybe we could work something out.

  14. Yeah, totally knew that sentence was awkward and wrong but didn’t have the desire to work it out on the iPad. Laundry took precedent.

  15. Jenka says:

    Steve, I knew you were a bike official I just didn’t know what the event was. Sounds awesome!

    Yes, I fell and broke two bones in my left foot on Saturday, and have been completely immobile since then. I feel so useless just sitting here otherwise perfectly fine. But unfortunately even putting a little pressure on my foot is agony, let alone standing on it. At least now I have crutches and can hobble around my apartment. Heh.
