Another 80 degree Christmas

I am on my way to the airport to pick up my girlfriend and I am
blasting the AC in my mom's car. Just another Florida Christmas!

Plan Z




How am I so good at missing flights that I show up early for?

No really, just today I have already missed TWO flights, although I
was at the airport 3 full hours before the first flight.



I shrugged off the first missed flight like a dust bunny, par for the
course, totally expected when I show up to the airport so early.

The second one was a complete surprise though, it takes real talent to
miss two flights in one day.

After missing the first, I decided I should at least try to get some
work done, which I did ever so dedicatedly. By the time my second
flight was drawing nigh I decided I should double check with the
flight board to mitigate any confusion. Lo and behold, confusion
reigns king when it's more than 60 minutes before my flight. I
confused it with a later flight and assumed my flight was delayed,
thus producing the inevitable outrageousness of A SECOND missed flight
in one day!

It's really ok, as long as I make this last flight to Orlando.
Totally inevitable and out of my hands at this point. I'll sit on the
boarding pass computer if I have to, but really I think the answer
lies within the fact that I began preparing for this flight within an
hour of departure.

I got his one.

I am all over it.

I hope.

Rockin The Roots in the reference section

So I heard about a free Roots show today.

Yea, free.

And it's at the library!

So after waiting in line for about two hours...


Chilling out in a library waiting for The Roots...

Snow Pics

My girlfriend made a couple of snowmen. Her name is Amelia, which
means "industrious", so she really couldn't be satisfied with just one.

Snowing in Louisiana!

What the he'll is going on here? Either Al Gore is full of shit or
the End of Days is nigh and we should begin repenting for our sins.
Absolutely crazy!

Some ramblings from work...

My friend and I invented a new term - Legman - similar to Wingman, but in his words "the subtle difference of a leg man would be a dude that just latches onto the leg of his friend that has game and gets carried." The wingman cares not for his own glory, but the Legman is only out for himself.

Only in Louisiana is it cool for an employee to spend his morning frying chicken in the break room. (the smell is amazing)

I just heard the same argument for eating pecan pie as I have heard for people that smoke - it comes from a tree man, it has to be good for you.

I am not sure who is being less productive - the guy frying chicken or the guy reading the Ford Motor Company business plan submitted to congress for the last hour. Neither have anything to do with work at the office, but the chicken is at least going to feed other working people.

I think it is a really good sign if we have a green day in the stock market today, it would mean we are seeing some strong buying sentiment around the 800 S&P level. Buy in around there and you should look good for the long-run.
