Stuff....and things.

Good morning dear reader

Long has it been since I've graced this site with some musings.  It seems I do that a fair much time in between writings.  I must avail myself of more time to keep in touch with you all....or run the risk of losing you forever.  And that, dear reader, pains me to think of it.   You've devoted much time to following me on the various blog sites, and I in turn must continue to provide you with my musings.  All I can say is this:  I'll try.

So, what's the latest?  Well, I have received a promotion at work.  Currently I am a Help Desk Analyst, working on the Help Desk (Captain Obvious!!) for Edmonton Public Schools.  As of July 5th, I will become a Technical Analyst, working out at various schools as the tech guy.  This is a huge step for me, and one I am definintely looking forward to.  My first couple weeks in my new role will be spent on holidays.  I love my job .

My helicopter hobby continues to progress nicely.  The latest copter is costing me a fortune, but mostly because I need to buy specific tools to get the thing running.  Fortunately this outpouring of cash should come to end (sort of).  I won't have to buy the tools again, but parts will be never ending.  I don't have the 450 class copter running yet, but I am getting close.  I'm in the process of installing the electronics, after which I will need to set up everything to work nicely together.   Hopefully a couple more weeks will do it.


Here's a question for you, dear reader.  Why in the name of all that is good do some people feel the need to express how much money they spend on stuff?  I mean, do I really care how much you spent on your Lexus, and how much you spent on your toys?  No, I don't care.  And if you think you're impressing me, think again.  Really, if you need to throw dollar figures around, I'm more than likely to think you’re an idiot.  This mostly applies to conversations like "yeah, so I'm driving my Lexus, which cost me $50,000........."  See what I'm sayin', dear reader?  I know that in an earlier paragraph I moaned about my helicopter hobby being expensive, but that is different.  I didn't throw out numbers, and I didn't try impress you with the amount spent.  /end rant.

About the only other thing I've been doing over the past little while is working on the speech I have to give at my nephew's wedding.  Yes, I am the 'best' man, and yes, I have to give a toast to the groom.  So far I am on revision 6, which is also known as RC (release candidate) 1.  I plan on working on it some more on my lunch hour today.  As I write it, I usually laugh a lot, so they people I work with look at me funny.  Meh, nothing new there.

And that, dear reader, is about all I've got for today.  It is approaching my lunch hour, and thus another writing task awaits.  Hopefully I will see you soon again on these pages.  Until then....take care.
