25/Feb/2007 – Ice Storm = Pajama Day   4 comments

Since we got some ice here in Da ‘Burgh, I am still in my PJs with no plans to change that.

In the meantime, enjoy a laugh:

“What starting salary are you looking for?” the head of human resources asks the newly graduated engineer at the end of a job interview.

Going for it, the guy says, “Well, sir, I was thinking about $125,000, depending on the benfits package.”

“Okay,” the HR director says. “How about five weeks’ vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, 100% company match for your 401(k), and a Porsche for your company car?”

The engineer gasps and says, “Wow! Are you kidding?”

“Yeah,” he replies. “But you started it.”

15/Feb/2007 – Winter Storm   3 comments

Winter Storm

Day 010001001

Have you ever thought about robbing a liquor store?* Not today. It’s too cold.

In the aftermath of the winter storm that moved through the U.S. mid-west and northeast, I braved the cold to scrape the ice off my car.

See the pictures on my Flickr photostream.

* Disclaimer: I don’t rob things or think about robbing things. I don’t encourage robbery.
