No news = Good news

From what I hear, my audience has been missing new content and the yummy CBLT picture isn't helping. As you might have guessed, I've been a bit busy and don't have the free time to post to the blog as often as I have in the past. My apologies.
Work's been keeping me busy during the day (no posting during worktime, like I am now) and I've been going to a chiropractor during most of my lunch hours (I know it's helping but must I really go see her 3x per week?). I've also been fitting a little more working out/exercising into my schedule. That's usually done in the morning (though tai chi is still after work), so it means I'm getting to bed earlier - no more late night blogging. So any time I'm not doing any of the above (or other chores like making cat food, cleaning the house, doing laundry, etc.), I'm having fun with the new squeeze.
I'll try and post short bits a little more frequently, I promise!

For now, here's a photo taken last week at my project. We're forming the deck for the 2nd level of parking (where I was standing), about 10 feet above what I was looking down on - workers doing a "swirl" finish on the recently poured concrete of the 1st level of parking (about 15 feet above the street). It was late in the day and the light was really dramatic. In the background you can see downtown Denver. Cool, huh?


Darwin's oppostition

N.Y. Ban on iPods and cellphones?

The rationale is that oblivious people crossing streets have an increased likelihood of being killed by traffic.

Sounds like survival of the fittest in action.


Case for the Challenger

"True love is the greatest thing in the world, except for a nice MLT, when the mutton is nice and lean and the tomatoes ripe. It's so perky."

I contend that Miracle Max is wrong and that the greatest thing in the world, besides true love, is a CBLT -- Canadian Bacon with Lettuce and Tomatoes. I had the sandwich pictured above (I can't believe I stopped eating it long enough to take a picture!) with a vanilla creme soda with dark rum. It was heavenly.

It's a good thing to take pleasure in the small things in life, because otherwise I'm fighting being torn apart by the stresses of life.
First, there is my job, which is like carrying a 32-story building on my shoulders.
Second, there is the new "fella", who is a pleasure to be with. Where's the stress? Inside, where I've got different parts of me (libido, emotions, intellect) fighting over what to think of it. I'll work it out eventually, but it's a puzzle in the meantime.
Third, I'm gearing up to take the Architectural Registration Exams. Yikes!
and Fourth, I'd like to get back to writing.
I'm getting weekly massages and going to a chiropractor to attend to how these stresses are affecting my body. I went in to work for 6 hours to get a grip on my workload. I'm trying to simultaneously take it easy (watching my Buckaroo Banzai DVD) while getting some work done (doing taxes).

Life, it's not for the faint-of-heart, is it?
