my mom tells me that my dad’s favorite band was creedence clearwater revival. or see-see-are, for those “in the know”. it would please him to know that i really appreciate their music and influence… i hope. :)
i’ve been told recently by one regular reader that i’m not posting with the quantity that he’s used to. and i told him, “everything’s boring.” and that this may become a “home improvement blog”.
i don’t know if that’s good or not; but i spent the majority of last weekend planning projects, scratching out plans, exclaiming “i want a walkway in the front!”
one of the best things about having a house and yard to call your own is the ability to make it what you want. we’re planning on building a deck in 3 weeks. we have the people lined up, the architecture roughly drawn, and the idea of sitting in the back of the house with a cocktail and a laptop firmly planted.
more to come, with pictures; both before and after.
i just tried making wonton soup but they turned out really bland and soggy.. and they’re really a lot of work. since i used seitan and roasted poblano peppers, i’ll be able to turn that mix into tacos for lunch tomorrow.
i’m really trying to stop using the cafe at work cuz i don’t need to spend $5 a day on lunch.
they added streetview to madison and it’s outlying areas.

if kurt were at all techy, i’d get him this for a holiday or something.
i think i’m safe; my boss doesn’t read my blog.
so, i’ve just breezed past my official 5 year anniversary at work… 1.5 years at the beginning of my tenure didn’t “count” because i chose to keep it temporary (more $/hour)… i’ve had my current position for a little over a year. and i kinda want to talk to the boss-man about dropping the “associate” from the beginning of my title (which essentially means asking for a promotion).
i have never done that before… i feel kinda weird about it; it seems like saying, “hey, it doesn’t seem like you notice or appreciate me as much as i think you should. care to prove it?”
12″ by the end of tonight?! i’m going to woodman’s. luckily, it’s two right-turns to get there and two left ones to get home. i’ll bet it’s completely empty, too.
blogging from the tavern is still awesome. in case you were wondering.
