Workin’ for a Livin’

Professional sculptor at Sandcastle Days, 2002
Workin’ for a livin’, livin’ and workin’
I’m taking what they giving ’cause I’m working for a livin’

Well I’m back in the swing of things at ALE. Projects with unreasonable deadlines and expectations, are the norm, and I was handed one this morning. I will get something done by the deadline, and they will deem it wonderful. That’s the magic of ALE. It also seems to be a tenet of project management everywhere.

Suna’s job hunt is progressing nicely. She had two interviews yesterday and three today. I don’t know how she manages to keep everything straight when both kids had all four wisdom teeth out yesterday to boot.

Needless to say, it has been a frantic time around ye old casa. Nobody slept much last night. I tend to get really grumpy when things interfere with my sleep—I have always needed my nightly eight—but I survived. I don’t think I broke anything.

Friday’s Feast

Appetizer When was the last time you received a surprise in the mail, and what was it?
I don't remember every having received a surprise in the mail. Usually, I only get things I have ordered. Maybe a Christmas card? That would be surprising because I don't send them out.
Soup If you could have a summer and/or winter home, where would you want it to be?
  • Summer: Some place like North Carolina where the summers seem to be pretty mild.
  • Winter: South Padre Island where it seldom freezes and you can swim all year
Salad Pick one: pineapple, orange, banana, apple, cherry.
Main Course Describe the nicest piece of clothing that you own.
The nicest piece of clothing I currently own is a camel hair sport jacked that Suna helped me pick out to wear to a funeral last year. The nicest piece of clothing I will soon own is a sweater that Suna is knitting for me.
Dessert If you could forget one whole day from your life, which day would you choose to wipe from your memory?
I forget.
