Life Update - 032106

Ok, lots going on so today is an update day:

1) The iPod is full and now I have to choose which songs don't make the cut. It's like playing American Idol with people who already were/are stars.

2) A friend at work bumped into an appraiser moving his business into our area and he is looking for an intern with knowledge of the area. Hmmm... my interview is tomorrow at 3pm prior to work.

3) I decided that my procrastination with the lawn conversion has to end. On Friday, I'll rent a sod cutter and pull up all the grass (with a little trimming around the sides.) On Saturday, I'll take some photos of my irrigation system to professionals so they can build me what I need and go look at pretty rocks. On Sunday, I'll play in the dirt a little but expect to spend the day doing my newsletter.

4) Dad got a used Tivo from my brother Matt (first he gives me a sofa, dad the Tivo... I need to check with his wife about his health.) I'll be heading over to Dad's to set things up maybe early tomorrow. The good thing about now getting Sunday's off is that I will not miss family gatherings in the evening.

5) After going to my friend Mike's house last week, I've been thinking of painting these white walls in the house. I thought white was a serene non-color but I just don't want to start another project too soon.

6) People keep asking me about advertising on my main Web site. Usually, I just take so long to answer them that I delete the email. I need to figure a "going rate" at some point. If the new podcasts work out alright, I'll probably need to figure out ad rates for that too. Never had to worry about it in the past because I wouldn't consider the idea unless they had something to do with 80's music. Now, some of them are popping up.

7) I'm really loving Taco Bell's Chicken Caesar Grilled Stuffed Burrito. I love a good caesar salad (the dressing is important.) And considering it is one of the few sources green cellulose (salad) that I'll ingest, it may be a healthier option than my regular haunts.

Wow what a group of eclectic posts Martin. Good luck on the job interview, hope it works out for you. Give me a call if you need any help over the weekend with the yard.

Wow you do have a lot on your plate right now.

Good luck on the job interview, I know you will do great!

So does this mean you got the Sat & Sun days off shift?

Wow, the IPod is full? I shouldn't be surprised, I know... but that's a helluva lot of music.

Good luck on the interview!!

I've seen the commercial for that chicken caesar burrito. It does look good, I'll have to check it out.

I hope you do well on the interview - remember, you are interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you!

I am very close to having my iPod full and am not looking forward to making cuts...good luck. Maybe you need two iPod (just kidding).

Now you got me craving ceaser salad. Have you ever had a Chicken Ceaser Salad Bowl at El Pollo Loco?

After you mentioned the wrap I had to try it. It's good. Thanks Martin!

Boy, you sound like a busy guy. We will be painting in the dining room today and since I'm not feeling all that well I'm not sure if the paint fumes are going to make things worse...(I have a little spring cold.)

Good luck trying to figure out what music to delete off your Ipod. Sounds to me like you need a larger Ipod.

Good luck with the yard.
