OK, so here I go again. I'll try again to post the image to the site that would not post last time. :) Here goes!

Yay! It worked this time!!! :) So are you one? We'll see if I am soon enough. :)

Are you on the list?

Not that list, THIS list! It has an associated image as well, but I'm having the worst time trying to get it to upload. At some point, I'll have a little luck. When I do, I'll upload the image.

A Rock and a Hard Place...

So... my company's developer accepted a position elsewhere and will be leaving at the end of the month. Unfortunately, there are all these big plans from management to do all these different things that involve developers. They haven't allowed me to increase my staff which would have helped this problem before it became a problem, but that's life, right? Wrong! I know they expect that we'll continue where we left off without any break and without any interruption. They are so short-sighted. We need at least 2 people capable of covering each position. I know that may seem a little obvious to some of you, but we're talking some real rocket scientists here. The entire situation puts me squarely between the aforementioned extremely dense objects.

Now... on to other things. I'm enjoying the book Wicked. Many thanks to Admiral Bob for turning me on to the book. It's quite entertaining. Once I'm done with it, I think I'll go on to the next Harry Potter book that's lying on the floor of the Rec Room. I haven't read it yet and it's been around here for quite some time. I've been pretty good at controlling myself... :)

My gaming group has completed my Sidewinder campaign and we've moved on to a v3.5 D&D campaign. I'm having a great deal of fun with this one. Of course, I'm playing a H. Elf Ranger/Sorcerer (pretty standard for me) and it's a she. About 50-60% of the time I play a female character. Go figure! :)

I guess I'll go read some Wicked since I'm too tired to play WoW. It's also a bit too cold in the basement to play WoW at the moment. The basement is unfinished and there are no heating ducts in the basement. We get a little residual heat when the furnace starts and from the computers down here, but that's it. We borrowed my Mother-In-Law's space heater, but it pretty much has to be within 10 inches to be effective so the Queen uses it most of the time. She gets cold easily... :)

By the way, the temps around here have ranged from 0° F to about 20° F. That's cool enough to make me agree that it's cold. :) I'm sure the Queen will be happy to read that I admitted to that.

A little Help... Please? :)

Hey all you folks that read my blog, can I ask for your assistance? Please comment on the Queen's blog and ask her to complete the vacation updates? :) Also ask her to finish picking out songs for out DVD Slide show of our vacation. Thanks!

I've probably just insured she'll divorce me and take all $38.42 I have to my name... :)

Anyway, it's been too long since I posted and for that I apologize. I guess I've been too busy thinking of heady things and pondering life, philosophy... who am I kidding?! I've been too self-absorbed and lazy to post and that's the whole of it. On a positive note, the Queen and I had chicken a few nights ago and that was VERY nice. I can't remember the last time I had to preheat the oven for 2 hours, though.

I'm sure this will earn me the privilege of paying alimony for the rest of my life... Queen, dear, can we make chicken again before I have to sign the papers??? How about meatloaf?? :)

Boy, I'm gonna get into so much trouble from this post, but I'm in a pretty good mood at the moment and don't want to waste it. Tomorrow will be here soon enough and the mood will be destroyed. :)

I'm sure that any of you who read OTJ, will get the DILF reference, but for those of you who don't, I plan to play along with the prospective MILFs and shed some unnecessary pounds. My goal is to lose about 35 pounds to get to my ideal weight, but we'll see just how close I can get. I want to become that guy with whom my queen wants to regularly make chicken-stuffed-meatloaf. Wish me luck! :)

I'm happy to be back. All the long lines and pushing the girls around, etc has finally come to an end. Don't get me wrong, I'm grateful for the time away from work. I deserved it, but our vacations all seem to extract more work from me that the amount of relaxation it gives. Perhaps it's just me...

Anyway, I'm back now and if you want to read about the vacation, you can check out the Queen's blog and you can get a day-by-day running commentary, complete with instant replay and illustrations... OK, so no play replay or illustrations, but you do get lots of pictures. :)

Yesterday was actually the first full day we were back, but I just wanted to be lazy. :)

Enjoy the brevity of this post as you read the Queen's novel.
