The week in review

Overall, it was a pretty good week.

As for work I got quite a bit done. I was able to set some of the nagging things aside and actually get some major progress on rolling out our Puppet software with some new recipes. Being able to touch a single file and have it propagated to all 100 systems is a wonderful thing. I am on-call since colleague is out of town, but I expect things will be quiet.

Met a really cool guy last Thursday night and curious to see where this goes. I met him through a friend of a friend and I think the feeling is mutual that we will be seeing each other soon. We just went out to Jason's Deli for dinner. That same day before the date someone commented on how nice I looked. I think it was just because I was more relaxed this week then I've been in months.

The heat is on, big time. Greg Fishel predicted a high of 100°F Saturday and 102°F Sunday. I had a peak heat index of 108°F here at home today. Not pretty. If we do hit 100°F Saturday at RDU, it will be the earliest time in the year that we've hit 100°F since the 1940's.

Going to do some good mountain biking tomorrow morning with Dana. Needless to say, we are heading out early like 0800 before the heat hits us. Dana has never been to Little River and it will be a good workout. Will try to snap some pics while I'm out there tomorrow. Garmin replace my GPS and it will be coming along for the ride too to record my track.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

A MAN! Cool for you! Yay!

Yep, the heat continues. I think this our 5th straight day in a row with heat advisories and another one tomorrow.

So, you like puppets? I bet the term "puppetmaster" turns you on. ;)

Congrats on the new man. I wish you plenty of happiness. :)

Yea, it's been crazy over in Chicago here too. I'm trying to find a good break to cruise the boat over to the new marina! It's been exceptionally warm and humid for June the past week with threatening weather a possibility daily. :(

Way to early to call him my "new man". Just going to know each other so far. We'll see.

He's a lucky man. I would totally stalk you if I lived closer.

Ok, maybe stalk is a bad choice of words... ;)

Stalk me? Is that what you would do?

I'd just pounce on you. ;)

Stalking is far too voyeuristic.

Pouncing sounds much healthier! *grins*

You are such a tease. I know what you're hintin' at. :p

This is just me complaining about the weather, but it was like sixty degrees for 4 months then? 100. My poor air conditioner is going, "Why?"

Just sayin.

Oh, yeah, this heat wave hit us like a tidal wave. 70's one day, 90's the next. We've been under heat advisories daily from noon until 8pm.

Yay for meeting someone! I can't wait to see the details!

Yep, we'll see. It was only a first date and a short one at that. Maybe something Wednesday evening.

Things are still going OK with you? I may have lost track on how your latest buddy was doing.

Things are going great! The LDR thing is hard, but we're still together and still managing, thanks!
