Fence: Complete

Phew.. Thanks to some temporary gate latches and a nice day (34 degrees, overcast) I finished the fence and tore down a segment that seperated the back yard from the front yard.. Check out my updated Fence 2007 gallery for great pics. The pictures demonstrate the how dog is now unable to leave our yard, his new reign of the entire yard area of our house and of course how cool our gate is.

I'm so tired.. But its done..

"I am the Shit" or "Knowledge is Power"

To whom it may concern,

Look out.. Move aside when I walk by cause I'm the shit, and you aren't.

You couldn't possibly understand the complexity of my being, which I can safely assume due to your inability to use a mouse correctly when operating a computer or notice that the numlock is keeping you from getting work done.

People, please start bowing for in your eyes I appear to be everywhere at once. I can fix things you can't see, simply because you don't know where to look, or how.

Have a question? Make sure its something useful and not just stupid person gibberish that mentions nothing specific what so ever. Tell me what you are experiencing and don't leave out things that happen that are contrary to what you want to happen. Those are called 'errors' and they must be noted.

And yes! I know exactly whats going on behind the scenes as it happens, I have a telepathic link that joins me to the servers we use. It doesn't stop there because I'm linked to each and every person in this city, NAY, this country! When somebody anywhere accesses our files I know not only what files, but why they are accessing them and how they knew they were there.

So fear me, love me, and show your appreciation to me by assuming I am at all times deeply invested in some sort of query or 'code' that is beyond your simple comprehension. Be afraid to knock at my door and please forget everything I ever said about emailing me when you have an issue. I must have been lying about not being able to keep track of all the problems, look at me! I'm obviously on top of it if it appears I am working tirelessly on resolving... something.

BTW.. Thanks for the cookies you baked me after I helped you at your desk a few days ago.

Arms like noodles

I'm so tired..

I got half of the fence gate done last night, I just have to figure out a cosmetically acceptable latch system for the other section that has yet to be built. Time is skewed today, I should be leaving work right now according to the way I feel. The harsh reality is I just got to work an just over an hour ago.

The arms are noodles because of my decision to use the Fat Max hand saw last night instead of break into a neighbors house for his circular saw. I think that was a good decision considering how inaccurate the circular saw can be on a 2x4. It has a hard time retracting the safety shield and I can't focus on where to cut while manually retracting the shield. I really need a miter saw.

Skyefoil mentioned the need to clean the garage. I knew that task was going to be a sooner than later task and I'm not all that excited about it. There are a lot of tools that need to be properly organized at some point, maybe I should borrow a reflective heater and just get it done one night.

I'm really thinking of pulling a Hiro... I'm just gonna squish up my face and watch the seconds go by.

Energy.. Gone..

I have to build a gate for our new fence today.. I'm not all that happy about it and I'm just waiting to find out our next door neighbor with the tool I need isn't home. I think he might have said something about just walking into his garage if I need it. I hope..

Been working on this damned fence for a few days now and I found a way of stretching chain link using ratchet tie downs. Its been a hoot getting this fence all tight and happy. I can't wait to do the finishing work and put some extra support on the top railings, I'm not too happy that each railing is basically held up on one end by two nails going into the butt end of one of the railings. It doesn't make for a very secure, well thought out solution. :(

A kid already climbed the chain link because he really wanted to. I didn't mind initially until I thought about the amount of kids in the area who love to climb things, we are pretty cool with the local kids and most of them seem to respect us and wanna work outside on our yard with us.

I stripped some rosehip buds from our one bush out front and burried a dozen buds every couple feet up and down the fence, I hope I did a good job and that next spring we may see some little sprigs of the bush poking through the ground. I may need to mark each area, I'll probably get some cheap tent stakes with those plastic circle tops and sink those next to the plant. Maybe I can find all plastic ones.

Ok, so.. obviously I have fence work to do right now. I'm not awake to do any of it however. I need to ride my bike over to the hardware store. Hopefully they will be open when I get there. I need to buy some gate hinges, latches, etc.. so I can make a folding gate.

What else is new with me? Why have I not been blogging? I think it has a lot to do with perfection. I themed my site and didn't finish it, and didn't have the motivation once I moved onto another little project. I have lots of little projects that steal my attention away. Either way I was unhappy with my blogs theme, therefore I didn't add much content.

I just today selected a stock theme from to give me an excuse to add content, instead of worry about porting a theme to So I wouldn't be surprised to see more from me in the next few weeks.

Starting, with my next post..

Smack Me On The Head With A Shovel!

Friend back home linked me to this.. We both totally want some of this crazy whackadoo material. So is this stuff for real, or is it the moon landing all over again.. except this time with flubber.
