I had trouble sleeping last night. I seemed to have pleasant enough dreams but I woke up more than usual and my throat seemed overly sore.

Lost in Cali

Yesterday, as the work day was coming to a close we decided to have dinner at Shanghai Fats, at the Thunder Valley Casino. Steve decided that he had enough of work and was going to walk down towards the gold course and maybe hit a few balls. Bob and Gina had car pooled with him and when they were ready to leave they should pick him up there or along the road if they left early.

When we leave I head home, and Bob and Gina head towards the gold course. I get a call at home that Bob and Gina can't find Steve. They've been looking for an hour and still nothing. So.. they can't meet me at 8. They ended up looking for him till 9, having called the military police and driven all over base. At this point they figure he must be walking back to roseville and head that way. When they get to the hotel they manage to convince the hotel staff to check his room for him. Nothing. They check messages and find he is at the Coyote Creek bar on bases, just around the corner from the golf course.

It turns out he was walking and wasn't anywhere near the golf course when the sun started going down, so he took a ride from Dr. Steve. The golf course and O club were closed when he got there and so he went over to the this other bar and waited for them.

So.. they probably didn't get to bed till after midnight and so they didn't make it in this morning till after noon.

T or T

Went over to Fitz's house to hand out candy with Eugene while Fitz and Co. went trick-or-treating. I taught Eugene how to play Munchkin-Fu. He seemed to like it. It's not really suited for 2 players, as the box says "3-6".

My throat has been acting up and I've been developing a cough. Eugene sounds like he swallowed a frog or has finally hit puberty. Their may be a virus going around work again.

I've been hearing voices outside my window in the direction of the graveyard since I got home. It may be just people walking by, but I do live on a dead-end street. Maybe its ghouls or zombies, or something cool though. I guess ghouls don't talk and zombies just say, 'brains', so it must be werewolves or vampires or something really powerful, like lichen. Fungus will get you every time.

Everything has started turning slowly green again as the temperatures cool and the rains come. The plowed fire-breaks have a green tint to them now.

End of the Weekend

I was supposed to be home this weekend, but I'm stuck here at work.

We have 'fixed' labs 4 and 5 for today and tomorrow. I'm about 60% done with lab 6 for Wednesday. We are hopeful we can cut labs 7-9 out of the cirriculum altogether. We still need to apply the updates from labs 1-3. We should be able to do that Tuesday, especially if 7-9 are dropped.

18 more days of work to go. I've got to remember to make my reservations on Monday or Tuesday. I'm not sure if I will take a red-eye on the night of the 18th or just fly in on Friday.
