Life is a short warm moment


I'm going to New York! I'm Going to New York!

Ya, I am pretty excited. I have never been and it is one place that I want to go. I have two friends that I am traveling with, one meeting us there and another that lives there. Friend living there = cheap accomodations!

Things that I want to see or do: Eat a hot dog in Times Square. See the MET. See a play on Broadway. Hock a luggie off of the Empire States Building. Go and see the Stature of Liberty. Ride the subway. See Central Park. Have a cab driver tell me to fuck off. Tell a cab driver to fuck off. Go to the Guggenheim. Go to the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History. See my buddies band play.

Oh, and of course, get a whif the lovely smell coming across the river from Jersey...

Ow. I smashed my head at work the last night, stood up and hit it into some structure in the plane. I now have a goose egg the size of Texas over my right ear. Still in a bit of a fog too. So, staying home and getting better.

Such is life.

Got to work today, all excited. My crew lead was back, so I was back to being regular Joe Mechanic. Yippee!!

But the best bit of all was finding out my new toolbox had arrived! After getting things squared away with the job, I rushed in to unpack my new box.

Sadly, as I kind of expected, it was damaged. Not too badly, but enough to warrant having it returned for a new one. I don't want to accept it the way it is.

On the bright side of things, it is a very nice tool box, a lovely dark metallic green. And there are lot's and lot's of drawer space! I really don't think that I have enough tools to fill it either!! (I will have to work on that problem...)
