Meaty, Very Meaty

Okay, how about something a little meatier than that last post? Are you hungry for it? I know you are. Lets dig in.

Today was one of those days where everything seemed to take twice as long to do as it should. As a result, I wasn’t able to finish the furnace change out I was given and I was there until 6:00. Just not a good day for me. Not as bad as it was for one of our ‘helpers’, he got the boot today. But I guess that’s what happens when you’re overly cocky, lazy, and not good at what you do.

I did get a call today that may prove to be interesting. A guy I went to school with just got hired by a bank to do property maintenance (emphasis on the HVAC), he let me know that he’d passed my name and history along to the hiring manager and he’d like to see my resume. Sounds pretty good; twenty bucks an hour, company vehicle to take home, the only downside is that they’ve only got two locations left to fill: Detroit and Grand Rapids. I don’t know about Detroit, sure it’s closer, but it’s Detroit. I think I’d prefer the Grand Rapids opportunity, I don’t know much about that city, but I’ve heard that it’s pretty nice. I’m supposed to get more details tomorrow.

Last Saturday I went down to the Triumph dealership, mostly I just looked. I’d like to get a windscreen and some saddlebags but I’m uncertain about changing the look of my bike for more functionality. I really like the look of my bike without the sissybar… but that’s one step in the practical direction. Do I dare take two more steps? I guess it really depends on how much I’m going to be riding this season and how far I plan on going. I did walk out of there with a new cover for the bike, that’ll allow me to park here at the condo as long as I use our carport.

Last weekend I spent with Tasha and I’ll be doing the same this weekend. We didn’t really do anything for Easter, celebration wise. We went out on Saturday as it was the anniversary of her father’s death and that’s what he would have wanted us to do. We did a family breakfast with her peeps on Sunday, but it really had nothing to do with it being Easter. Things are going well between us, probably going faster than they should, but what do you do… we’ve got some history.

My sister is off to California for some sort of training/conference for work, her plane leaves at some god-awful time in the morning. Sucks to be her. I get to take care of the kitten while she’s gone. Lucky me.

I think that’s about it for now. Maybe I’ll have something for you tomorrow. Buh bye.
