Quickly now between metings on my Day O' Meetings:
  • To you new people: I post FREQUENTLY and often with PICTURES. Fair warning. This has, in the past, annoyed people. I've given up worrying about it because you can, you know, not read me. :)
  • 8 hours of meetings today? Is that right?
  • Free lunch at least because of it. And an excuse t hang on the Verona campus, including ease of checking out management books to read from our TL liberry.
  • I used to be productive on the third Monday's of the month. I can't recall what that was like.
  • Well, the new diet isn't working quite right. I have gained strength which is good but I have added bulk (fat). So, I'm reducing my calories per meal by a few hundred. Trying to rough it in at 300 to 400 per and eat fewer carbs and less fat (I guess less GOOD fat as I stopped eating bad fats pretty much). Fewer peanuts which is sad.
  • I need a camera bag. My Awesome Bag of Awesomeness +2 hurts after a day of wandering. I may listen to ralinad because he is, like, my camera deity and try the LowePro Slignshot
  • Body World is way less grotesque than I expected. And more weird. Making muscles into a runner's wind streaks? Seriously?
  • Met yet more awesome people yesterday in Milwaukee. One of them was German. How many Germans have you met recently?

    Well. hat wasn't really "quick" so much as "laboriously long-winded." Bullet points? A mockery!

    Hey, thanks -

    The slingshot is great, but I've been carring a simple lowepro "top load zoom" for my camera and the lens I use 90% of the time. (for daily carry) I found I really just wasn't using most of it everyday, so I chopped it down for weight.

    The slingshot is still my bag of choice for trips and shoots. Lowepro makes good products.

    I think I need the better back support. I've had some pain using the heavier bag.

    Hmm. The slingshot isn't going to be great for back support, as its all on one shoulder. Its surprisingly well balanced and padded, but its still one shoulder.

    You may just want to chop down your kit. Do you really use everything that you carry?

    Just one.

    I've met just one German recently.

    I have not met any Germans lately, but I did meet a Norwegian yesterday. I was staying at a Days Inn up in Black River Falls with some friends, and they had one of those cool Golden Malted waffle makers with the continental breakfast spread. Unlike other places, where the waffling is very self serve, at the BRF Days Inn, the waffle machine belongs to Elke, who manages to do a whole lot of other tending to the breakfast spread in the little two-minute cooking periods of the waffles.

    I needs me a good waffle iron, me thinks; a nice, round, metal one. But such uni-taskers they be.

    Unitaskers, eh?

    And interrogations.

    That red button is SCREAMING to be pushed.

    I pushed it. It stopped the wash. It was anti-climactic. I was sad.

    Sorry about the peanut-kibosh, though. They are yummy! Though not as pretty as girl-salads. :)

    Now w're back to porn...

    Should have put some nuts in the girl-salad.

    I'd say the problem with your posts are not enough pictures. Especially naked people doing funny things. And not behind cuts. Just, you know, all of a sudden some Tuesday morning, a big pictures of your penis painted up to be Glinda The Good Witch and some hilarious action shots of Glinda casting spells on your coworkers. Just remember to write NWS at the bottom of your post so when people bitch, you can point out that you totally said "NWS".
