    Good Morning Lodge!

    If I type it will it work like an incantation? My new laptop is STILL not OK. I went to bed at 1 last night with BB still working on it. Woke up this morning to find that they had erased all the data files that had been saved to the Outlook and it perpetually hangs for 10-15 minutes before it loads the emails from the server. I think they went thru all 3 shifts trying to get it to work. It doesn't and now I need to call them again. I don't even know where to begin.

    Good Evening Lodge.
    I would like to just be done with this yr. It is unraveling.
    I knew the answer before I asked it, and I completely understood. When I posed that question to them, they then understood the Houghton trip. You could see it in their faces, the mental "slow nod."

    Evening, Lodge. An afternoon at a friend's place filled with good beer, spatzle, and smoked bratwurst (5 different flavors/kinds). Dessert was chocolate merlot cupcakes (homemade). Prost! (officially the first day of Oktoberfest). Yes, there were 3 men in lederhosen, and 1 woman in dirndl (the ladies' version of lederhosen).

    Yay 3 day week next week (have Mon and Fri off). Mon for the hell of it, Fri because it's my brother's wedding (2nd wife; he's a widower in case anyone didn't know). Should be interesting. Sounds like the superfast vows a la Princess Bride, and I have no idea what the reception is going to be like.

    I'm not IN the wedding, as it was supposed to happen during the Houghton trip. At first, they were wondering how I could skip the wedding (knowing that the ceremony would be about 5 minutes). I asked them: Would you skip Sturgis for my wedding? Their answer? "Well played, Mauer."

    So my company dumps all time off into one bucket. Holiday, sick, personal, vacation. Everything. Since 2020 has canceled everything, I'm up to 250 hours of accrued PTO and counting.

    If only there was somewhere to go...

    Just finished the basic stuff I needed to send the students but I am still clueless about what I am doing. Turned out there was a confusion and I had the correct version and the person telling us what to do (including telling us we didn't need to do certain things) had a different version and we need to do a bunch of stuff. So, I think I navigated stuff the correct way, enough to get the notifications out. Other than that.... Well, yeah.

    Evening, Lodge!

    Big weekend ahead. Annual Gopher Road Trip Crew fall get-together on Sat, then a brewery's Members Only party (60 members, with +1s if applicable) on Sun. Looks like great weather all weekend, too. Still a LITTLE haze from the west coast fires, but it's getting better.

    Every 5 years we get to pick something out of a catalog. At my 15yr Anniv, I got a surround sound system. Here's the kicker: that was the only thing worth anything to me, and it'd be pointless for me to get it, since can't really maximize it in a 1BR apt. So I gave it to my brother. Should be interesting if they are still doing that thing next year, when I hit my 20th Anniv.
