No office work for a while
To look on the bright side of the cool weather, my wife made lasagna earlier this week (more oven time than we'd normally want to do in July!), so my lunch today included lasagna, and a piece of excellent sourdough rye to wipe out the container with afterward, and that combo totally hit the spot today
Congrats Tad! =D We expect regular updates on the mysterious IT guy!
We finally had *some* good weather! We took Karma swimming, she has never swam in the sea before and she loved it, I got to chill at the beach and get some vit D. and than it started raining again :/ Oh and I looked cute as hell
FYI I'm not half as slim as I look trust me
Still hawt as shit to stfu girl !
As usual, Xy has nailed it exactly
(I'll add -- glad your pooch had a good time!)
Congrats Tad! Great news!
Such a beauty! :wubu::smitten:
The hotel had sugar-free "Breakfast syrup."
Okay, so it's on par with maple-flavor syrup down at the market, but it's a small victory, nonetheless.
Bought a high velocity hairdryer for the maminals in the house. No heat, just crazy air pressure). I want to try it out so bad! Hope it arrives tomorrow!
Did you get the jet blower yet, Xy?
This is slightly belated, from Tuesday. Just my second week at the new job, and it happened to be one of their social events. We went off to do an ‘escape room’ experience at what is locally called ‘The Diefenbunker’ (project started under than prime minister Diefenbaker back in the late 50s/early 60s, to build a bunker that the government and top military could operate out of in case of a nuclear war). The place is now a museum to cold war era preparations, concerns, equipment, and lifestyle – but a local escape room company leases out one floor some of the time.
We had to be broken up into three groups, and each group took longer than the admin who had planned it had expected, so sat around for quite a long while before going (I was in the last group). But there were snacks, then supper, the in-company band did some silly cover songs, and it was a good chance to get to know more of my co-workers.
I guess you could say that in some ways in was rather lame, but managed to be fun all the same. (sadly the SSBHM IT guy didn’t attend – given that there are no elevators in the bunker I was not totally surprised, but had hoped that he’d be up for powering up and down the stairs).
Escape rooms are not ssbhm friendly at all based on the research I've done.
Catching up the happies from this week ... biked to and from work yesterday (20km each way), without stopping to rest, totally collapsing when I got home, or being noticeably sore today. I was happy enough to drive today, but I think I'll bike again tomorrow -- my legs hadn't gone as soft as I'd feared, I guess. Now to pick up the pace a bit over time.
:bow: gravais Xy!
Thanks! They both had great time. Karma not only had fun swimming but also running around with other pups and playing with sand. She's like a little child, it's adorable. Yenna spent most of her time on the blanket as pictured lol sometimes she's very much of a true dog and sometimes she's total toy, wants to be carried and treated like a princess lol
Thank you ❤️❤️❤️❤️
That sounds like so much fun! I haven't got a chance to to the escape room yet even tho they've been huge in Poland last year but I honestly think it's real fun that you get to do it with your new coworkers. you think the ssbhm hasn't come because of the lack of stairs? Things like that always make me sad because fat people cant do certain things and can feel left out or uncomfortable. I wanna make all the fatties happy and able to enjoy all sorts of activities :/ also if the stairs are the problem how big he is? or are Americans so used to elevators that the idea of stairs scares you so damn much?
Canadian, thank you very much!
There are accessibility laws here that essentially require elevators in almost all public buildings, so that those who can't use stairs, for whatever reason, can get in and out and around without too much difficulty -- so yes, you could live your life here without ever using stairs. This being a historical facility is the rare exception that doesn't have stairs, so it jumped to my mind as a possible reason he didn't come.
But really, I don't know why the IT guy wasn't there. There are all sorts of possible reasons, and I don't know him that well so have no reason to know why. I probably shouldn't have speculated about the stairs. He is the fattest guy I've ever worked with, but in truth I don't know what his physical capabilities and limits are -- the stairs might not have been an issue for him. I really wrote that post without thinking things through
(I should point out that most people here do use stairs pretty regularly, and having to avoid using stairs can be quite awkward. It is just that having no choice but to use stairs is rare enough here that it stood out in my mind)
My friend finally uploaded some pictures of our trip to bournemouth! Here's me hanging with some frogs! =D
I'm happy that I'm about to grill a 2# ribeye, and that there is cheeto-mac-and-cheese in the oven baking right now. Happiness comes slathered in cheese.
Was a perfect evening to catch some shakespeare in a local park then come home for some (decaf) irish coffee on our back patio... just one of those perfect Summer weekend evenings.
Well I'm an ignorant dumbass. Ta-daaaa!
I'm sorry my dear Canadian friend I won't call you an American ever again
