Well. Yeah. It's been a while since I've been around these parts. Quite a bit has happened lately.
The biggest news would have to be that I finally got a new vehicle. That friggin truck screwed me over for the last time. It had just become flat out undependable. The last month I owned it, I spent in car repairs the equivalent of 4 car payments now.
In other news I've been mostly working. Worked just shy of 12 hours today. There's just a lot of work right now and I'm trying to get some work for next year. So far we've gotten a couple of good jobs.
The weather has been up and down here on the west coast of the east coast of North America. Thanksgiving week was rather cool. Last week was in the 80s all week. This week will be cooler again with highs in the 60s and low 70s.
I did see the movie Happy Feet the weekend before last with Michele's cousin, Audrey. On the surface, it was an OK movie with a few funny lines and fantasic animation. Below the surface, I couldn't help but notice a theme to this movie. The theme went somewhere along the lines of The penguins in Antarctica are starving because the people are stealing all the fish with big boats and big nets. And a few of the penguins are getting very ill because of those rings that go around soda cans wind up around penguin necks. And they wonder why people like me could give a rat's ass about walking into a theatre. Always be careful of They, peeps.
I'm better now. Yep. I'm Steve, and I approve this post. Later.
