BEEN GONE!


sorry folks, i know you all have been checking in on me and i haven't written shit. i haven't been here since Thursday and the computers were down on Friday and blogging on a mac with dial up pretty much sucks the grande meat burrito! well enough excuses already and write something bitch...

i just got the lecture about not spending any money at work... i guess taxes were due and the company just wrote a massive check. not two minutes later a man who i scheduled to come in last week rolls into my office. i had asked him to come in and do a custom leather steering wheel wrap on one of our trucks that needs it.


"hey man I'm here to wrap that wheel." he says in an Australian accent.

"right on, lets see if that truck is here." i reply.


there are two holes being burned into the back of my head from Wendy's stare of death. we head out into the yard and i hear the ladies in the office start to cackle about how i don't listen and how i do what ever the hell i want, blah, blah...

we work out the details and he will show up later to measure the wheel and get to work. the other head honcho types here saw me talking with "the leather guy" and now we are going to give him about six hundred dollars in business...they want custom wheel covers as well. oops i wasn't supposed to spend any money.

(hey l-train, you get their website up and running yet? and I'll give them a link!)

i took the the last five and a half days off of work, no i didn't go to the lake. nope, no fishing either. nah, i didn't even work in the yard much. pretty much sat around and drank beer. well that's not entirely true.

went out to lunch on my birthday. to the nepenthe restaurant and spent $90 on lunch for two adults and two kids. one of whom ate french fries only... this was after comped drinks and free desserts. throw $25 on for tip and you have one fucking expensive lunch. (quit bitching.)

the fire department here had given me a nice tip last week and i used that towards our lunch. quite a few of our friends work there, so we got to see some people and i even got a free coffee mug. (now we have four!)

spent the rest of my time off sleeping in and getting drunk, went to the beach and watched special cheeses daughter boogie board. went to the south coast and had family dinner with cheese and co. had some friends come into town and made breakfast, blah, blah, blah.

I'm being watched and have no more parts to order so I'll leave you all with this thought. isn't it nice to get what you want when you want it? how do you tell someone thanks for not doing anything and have them know you mean it! i really just wanted to sit at home and relax, take the weekend as it came and be mellow. i really enjoyed myself and doing nothing was exactly what the doctor ordered....

Happy Birthday! And I'm glad you got some doing nothing time in, it's deceptively restorative...

You run anything thru the still during your lazytime?
Glad you got a chance to just sit on your ass man, sometimes that's the best. Add in the drinking, and it sounds fucking awesome.

And fuck bosses who tell you not to spend any money. We're dealing with that shit at my work too. (End of the fiscal year for us as of August, and we're waiting for the money to start kickin in again before we drop a few grand on car parts.)

L-DRAINER: thanks holmes i'll see if i can set up a cool post for them...
B-EGG: thanks again for the b-day wishes and kicking it up at my house is something i wish for... remember when we were all kids? remeber saying "i'm bored."? well it was nice to almost sit around long enough to get bored again...
KAY: naw, nothing through the still this weekend. i was waiting on this tool that i needed. its a self calibrating ph meter.(digital) i need to bring the ph of the distilate down below 6 before i could run it back through. i also had ordered some heavy duty citric acid that only came yesterday. so i'll be doing that this weekend. and i picked up some more sugar, so i'll be fermenting a batch for a rum-run for next week! how are things going up in your "neck" of the woods.
