Jim caught me in the bar on Friday night (I know, surprise, surprise) and mentioned he could get really cheap rooms at the Rio when Mookie and Mrs. Mookie (who’s template is *messed* up right now) are going to be in Vegas. Hmmm… But that is less than 3 weeks away, won’t airfare suck? $200 round trip including fees and taxes tells me not. I’ll be there Sunday November 5 to Wednesday November 8. And I will be hitting the Crown and Anchor at *least* once.
I paid the deposit on my cruise this weekend. It looks like my pal Julie will be my bunkmate so that 4 day all-you-can-eat and drink-all-you-can-sneek trip will be about $300 plus a fifth and gas money to drive to Galveston.
I am an uncle. Again 🙂 My sister gave birth to Rebecca Elizabeth last Wednesday. I now have 3 neices and 1 nephew. I am going to be the Godfather of Rebecca. The Christening will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving in Massachusetts and I will be up there for the holiday.
Zero poker last week.
I ran about 10 miles last week. 4.7 miles so far this week. I keep track Sunday-Saturday. The goal for this week is about 15.
No golf on Tuesday- the Round Rock Express rented the whole course for the whole day. Then it rained all day long. Heh. No golf this week, my playing buddy screwed up his wrist in some drunken tom-foolery.
The 1st BCS rankings are out. Ohio State is a non-surprise #1. Texas is a surprising #9. VA Tech is a non-surprise no-show. Things will settle out in the next few weeks.
31 suspensions form the FIU/Miami brawl on Saturday. I want to find the whole thing on YouTube or whereever, anybody have a link?
My resume is up to date. Time to start plugging it into the system both here at IBM and outside (Dice, Monster, ect) and see what pops up. I have until March to find something- but if a cool job comes up earlier I’ll probably jump at it.
