Taking the Metrolink down there. Takes 2 hours so it isnt too bad, except that it leaves here at 6:41am (and the next one would be late afternoon...) =(
He has to work, so I am going to hang out at Disneyland for part of the day... but it is supposed to rain like crazy. =(
In any case, it is sort of a mini-vacation that isn't costing me anything. =)
But I am going to see if I can find some possible job opportunities in the area.
Hoping to make it up to Sacraento on 12/22 and back down hereon 12/26 if possible.
I have a tentative ride up there, and either a flight or maybe a ride back. Dunno.
If anyone in hte Sacto area is reading this and wants to hang out a little bit, please reply or send me an email.
I am going to be pretty busy with my kids while I am up there, but might have a little bit of time to say Hoooooooonk!!!! =)

Sorry about the lack of an LJ-CUT on my last huge (altho' worksafe) image post.
The guy only made it 11:40 instead of 24 hours.
Thanks to kovufor the nice birthday shoutout last week... (yeah my b-day was 5/23)
The Pyger and 2 of the squids return late Wednesday. Been kinda interesting having the place all to my self since Friday afternoon.
I was going to clean up the place, but it looks more like I just pushed around some papers.
And, being a RAnDoMoose... Ferris Bueller's Day Off is playing in Sacramento Thursday night @ 10pm WooHoo!
Hoofy Belated B-Day to polarbear_raq(cake?)
Thanks for the omlette sailor_atma=D
Thanks for the b-day msg redhaski.
I got a bluetooth headset from Pyger and teh Squids for teh one that I stepped on (buh). I also got a little briefcase business card holder from my mom. Went out to dinner on my b-day to On The Border (since I had a coupon) with teh family and Raq.
I wish I had more time to visit... but I also hoof been running errands.
Things are moving forward... I hope what I want is there at the end of the journey.

i want to write. I want to spill out everything going on inside me and around me, yet I can't.
I did show up at court Friday to see what was happening on a case I am very much interested in. Got to see the defendant in his orange jump suit. Doesn't look too good, but he as been in jail for almost 8 months. He didn't see me at first, but right before he was ushered out of the "cage" he turned and found me sitting, staring at him.... angerly. He had the deer in the headlights look. This is the first time has seen me in well over 8 months. He knows I am serious. He could not look away. Finally his attorney distracted him. Unfortunaly, she got a continuance until March 1, 2007. While it will be 9 months in jail so far, I want this trial to get going so it can be over with. He is up for 25 to Life right now. Just plead guilty and get it over wih.
That is just one of mny things that are going on with me.
I witnessed an accident on the fwy yesterday as I was driving to pick up teh Pyger. Garbage Truck vs. 4 door car. The car seemed to change lanes right into the front of the truck and ended up getting pushed down the freeway. I grabbed my phone and called 911. In less than 2 minutes, I got answered, got the information to them and hung up. Much better experience than the last time I called 911 on my old cell. This cell has e911 GPS.... was interesting... but after I called, I realized that they could in theory track how fast I was going during the call (I was going 5+ mph over the speed limit, I think) Was just a weird thought.
And now for something related but not...
Last weekend someone was shot next to our car (not at our apt complex) so while we were at FC our car was stuck in a police crime scene. Not fun. Just yet another thing to add.
One of the sites that I work was a target for an attack last weekend,while I was at FC... so I spent a lot of my time dealing with that instead of hunting fuiends.
Still working on the FURiends site. Got a lot of the site working. Have to fix some more bugs, update a database and then email the past members. Hopefully we will squash any bugs pretty quickly so it can move to BETA.
There are about 431 other things going on... however, I am not sure if anyone actually reads this =)
I parked the PygerMobile over by the Panera Bread and started to walk to Target (yeah, at least get a little bit of excercise.) As I walked by the front door of the new Panera Bread, a woman asked me if I would like free lunch today. Of course! They are doing a training day and were giving out "Ten Phoney Panera Dollars" for you to spend for lunch. It was nice. Got a "You Pick Two", half a sandwich and half a salad. Also got a Mt. Dew to drink... all for FREE... not to mention FREE WiFi! Yay! Oh wait...even cooler... lots of power plugs near seats!
Where I am sitting the WiFi is bouncing from 24 to 48mbps which isn't too bad, figuring that they problably have a connection under 6mbsp to the net. I am going to move around the store later while running NetStumbler to see if it is just where I am sitting.
They will open on Wednesday, November 8, 2006.
