dropping the ball...and other oddities

As you may have noticed, no self portraits this month. The theme is Pop Art and honestly I haven't had a moment to give this the proper thought it deserves. Also I have fallen dreadfully behind in my reading lately, only two books completed so far this month. On a more self-congratulatory note/upside: I did wash 44 bottles last night in preparation for beer bottling (a few more yet to go, why is it everyone thinks I need/want all their beer bottles = entitling them to free beer? The recycling center is going to think I'm a lush). Hopefully though work will smooth out with the replacement of strangely disappearing 'Narnia T-Shirt Man'. He just simply left. on the ferry. without telling anyone. odd. but then isn't everyone.
Anyway the new guy ('Union Underpants': a term used to describe (usually an extremely anal) man in love with his union - used originally for odd apprentice 'Matt the Rat') is equally odd though without the obvious narnia t-shirt issues. Odd employer asked mutual aquaintance of new aquired odd 'Union Underpants' what new employee was like: was told 'He Drinks'.
Please show me an electrician who doesn't.


My beer was very vigorous this time.......
and look proof that it was sun-ning yesterday (is now raining again).


'Attack of the killer dust monsters' or 'how I misplaced an entire house'

For the last week I have been stressing over the untidy (ie: Foul, Dirty) state of my house since the imminent arrival of the mother half of the parental units was pending. The Boss/Man asks me yesterday 'What do you think she's going to do if it's dirty, kick you out of the house?'
Which leads me to wish I was guy-like
and just didn't care.........
And here is a completely gratuitous picture of my view (that very large pile of rock is covering ALL the parking lot and the digger is in fact VERY big - you'll just have to take my word for it.)


Have been moving into my new office for W-E-E-E-E-KS now.
This was my outside view last week...

They were blasting every day at 4:30p.m. for my new water line. YES, I am currently without water. I'd like to say this has helped me cut back on coffee - but no it hasn't.

This is my inside view, messy isn't it?

Everyone needs flowers
