Get 'er done
Ahhh! My workstation isn't set up yet; therefore, i can't remotely connect while in training! I'm relegated to using Internet Exploder today (you know, cuz I pay great attention all day)!

How did we ever enjoy the days before tabbed browsing and mouse gestures?
</spoiled>

I got everything done yesterday besides my homework project. Instead of homework, I was creative though kind of sluggishly involved. The apartment is decreasingly chaotic as stuff finds a proper home in boxes and bins. Generally this means I am more creative, less frenetic with the mess.

I have learned, perhaps re-learned in this case, that I must (must) have an organized/clean living space in order to be adequately creative or even relaxed. From about last week, Wednesday, to yesterday, I was stressed and generally frazzled (as frazzled as I can be) over everything. My mind felt as cluttered as my living space, so much so that I wanted to be at work so I could do something productive. It's getting better, though. Tonight, while Fox packs the remainder of the stuff (Gods [damnit, I picked up Annan's and Aetrix's pluralized deity expression] I'd love to finish everything but the bed dismantling tonight) I get to take apart the desk and table and shove away the clothes I won't be wearing Friday and Saturday. I'm excited because when furniture gets disassembled, we're almost done. Hurrah!

For saturday, it looks like we're going to have, at minimum 10 people with as many as 13. Amazing. Assuming we have adequate truck(thanks Aetyrix and Jefferyp)/van(thanks Leleth_Faery) space, we could probably get the move done in one trip which would be nuts and very unstressful for all.

Two days out, I'm finally looking forward to moving.
I may also be able to enjoy Kink(ed) 9even if Smed isn't coming <pout>).
Now... should probably start the homework I didn't do.

Dude, you're literally right down the street from me right now. *waves*

I have been all week. I'm in the building with the blue arch thingy on top.

The building is full of weirdos. They were laughing and making weird self-helpoy confessions loudly yesterday. They disturb our VB leraning experience.

Are you at Greenbrier Russell? Andrea (officemate and someone I worked with before who I stole and made come and work with me) had training there ages ago... they probably still remember me because I cause havoc in environments like that.

Anyway. I'm in the building that looks like an earthquake hit it. (I kind of shy away from naming my workplaces on the internet :) )

Edgewood College, not sure of that's the same as Greenbriar.

I'll look for your crazy eathquake buildiong when I go to lunch. :)

And here, I'm dreading Kink(ED)...
abmann From: abmann Date: June 8th, 2006 02:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Why?
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 02:53 pm (UTC) (Link)
Not knowing as many people, being busy, not having anything I feel comfortable in to wear. etc.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 8th, 2006 03:38 pm (UTC) (Link)
So pretty much same as last time. :P i think most of the people we met last time will be there again.

We also don't have to go and continue to pack.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 03:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
You're looking forward to it, though, and I don't want you not to go just because of me... We'll talk about it tonight.
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 02:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
You tempt me so, but due to recent events I think some Smed alone time may be in order.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 8th, 2006 03:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
Fine. You hate me. I understand. :P
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 03:44 pm (UTC) (Link)
You know that's not true. Rather the opposite in fact.
But you also know that downtime is good.
Please don't add to the guilt.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 8th, 2006 03:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
Woo guilt! Tastes like childhood.

Gets some RnR this weekend, crazy busy person.
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 04:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Crazy indeed.
And to note - if you would not have mention the 10+ people that are assisting with your move, I would have been there. I'm like that.
I'm assuming 10 people is enough? If you need more, I can always make a trip up. Assuming it's in the afternoon... being that Grant wants me to go with him to get Grandma tonight from the Airport. Her flight doesn't come in until 11pm. And I have to work tomorrow morning. GROSS.
OH! Using my resources - any thoughts on the FASTEST way to get from south 151 to the madison airport?
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 04:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ick. I'd just go straight through. 151 up into town, then to University, and take University until it turns into Johnson, then to Packer Ave, then it's just a right on Airport Drive...
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 05:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
Google Maps make that route look nasty. Is it truely that bad?

Grant takes some funky other way... I think he goes the other way around the lake. Seems longer to go that way. Hrrrmmm... I'm assuming at 11pm we won't have to factor traffic in too heavily...
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 05:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
Airport lists these directions:

Heading Northeast to Madison on Hwy. 18-151

Turn right on Hwy. 12 at the beltline. Exit Hwy. 12 and follow Interstate 90 North, exiting at Hwy. 30 South. Turn right on Hwy. 113, Packers Ave. At the first stoplight, turn right on International Lane and continue to the terminal building.
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 05:12 pm (UTC) (Link)
which lake does he go around? Either way, it's longer, but yeah..
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 05:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
Mendota... sorry - didn't realize there were two lakes there..
duurrrrr...
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 05:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's the longer of the ways to go around a lake...
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 05:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Easiest way is take 151 up to Midvale, take that to University, and go from there.

I didn't explain that one, sorry... But yeah, 151, veer left onto Midvale, turn right on University, stay on University as it turns to Johnson, then Packer, then turn Right at Airport Rd.
smed From: smed Date: June 8th, 2006 05:23 pm (UTC) (Link)
That looks better... I can follow that route. Thanks for the info. Now if only I can get captain my captain to listen to my directions :)
I'll offer him insurance - if he gets lost, call Will ;)
lady_fox From: lady_fox Date: June 8th, 2006 05:46 pm (UTC) (Link)

Neat freak!
Call me tonight - I'm going to Iowa on Sunday to Monitor. Yick.
abmann From: abmann Date: June 8th, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC) (Link)

1 - I blame you because I hear you say it, not her. :P
2 - Yes. You've known tis all along and it's too late now!
3 - K. I'll be stopping by the house this evening to pick up my hex wrenches and some screwdrivers so we can talk then if you like.
aetrix9 From: aetrix9 Date: June 8th, 2006 06:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'll be home after KB about 6:45-7:00. I wanna show you my peppers.
