Busy, Busy

Another brutal day of toil for Snag. Up and out of bed. A grueling slog through the newspaper. A little work from home. Then off to lunch with a co-worker at a vendor's home.

The vendor, who's become at least a quasi-friend during previous beery afternoons following business meetings, lives in an architecturally significant home in a neighborhood full of them. He gave us a tour, explained the difficulties involved in getting a permit to change to the exterior, showed us the results of his daughter's attempt to microwave a metal goblet, invited us to play Guitar Hero in the music room. We talked about work a little, about some projects we have doing and a seminar we're planning. Then we commenced to grilling hamburgers and drinking beer and sitting in his garden, enjoying the sun and telling stories.

The afternoon passed and when I was driving home I thought how the money I used to make in my old job wasn't enough.

Snag, you are worth a million a day! I love you, Snag.

Does said neighboor live in Kenwood with my people who you are supposed to be introducing me to? :)

Need a personal assistant? I can telecommute: drinking from home is one of my specialties.

Sounds like you need an assistant.

After an extensive review of the candidates, I have determined that I am the best choice.

Ignore that Men D character. (he's a CANADIAN).

love it.

I've also got a man-sized safe.

I hear that sort of thing comes in handy for a second-in-command.

Billy can double as a body guard. I think he has a hat that can cut the heads off of statues.

I love that the music room had Guitar Hero in it. My dream is to have a specific Guitar Hero/Rock Band room, complete with an IRS audit station and a small detox booth.

OK, it's settled.

Soon as I run away from home, I'll be up there Snag. It's OK, I can sleep in front of the TV. Just leave me a beer for breakfast....

That just sounds wrong... on many levels.

Man-Sized Safe may be the name of my next band....

I spent today grilling brats and burgers for my coworkers if that makes any of you feel better.
