Catch Up (not Heinz)
At work, the process that I had let run over the long weekend did not blow-up and things that were broke when I left were still broke. I spent my time catching up on the blogs that I usually slog through. Perhaps, slog would be a more apropos term in place of blog. Except for Broken Clay. She is concise, brief and mentions me every so often. Puffing up my ego, she is. Hmmm, yes? I packed very little lunch for the day and oddly enough, did not feel that hungry. Must have been the gallons of lager and the heaping plates of bratwurst that I ate this weekend sticking with me. I spent some time chatting with Pretty European Renee' about her dating experiences with the Rat-Tat-Tooie boy toy and her aspirations for getting out of the software industry. The money is good, but there comes a point where prostituting yourself becomes an antithesis of what you expected your life to be when you started out. Of course, once the kids come along, aspirations and goals tend to shift a bit. As they should.
Goals. Speaking of them, the Mrs and I managed to get 1/3 of the green beans that came from our garden clean up. My work-horse father picked about 2.5 bags worth and we still have a new load growing in the three rows I planted in the Agricultural Sector. I'll have to can the ones that are worth it and prepare the ones that are a bit too mature for Alexis. She only likes the beans inside, not the outer skin. The beans are dry and not very tasty, but she likes them and they are a very nutritious. If I introduce her to baked beans, Mrs MDMHVONPA will advocate that I be banished from the city-state and a Methane-Free zone be established within the Manor. Perhaps I'll start her off with bacon. Mmmmm, bacon.
