Our new GM starts tommrow, we still haven't gotten the part for his desk that i'm missing. i'm thinking of just setting up what i got and leave the rest for later. i better do it now before it gets to late.
Mr. meek called me this morning, KQXXfm was off the air with a powerouttage and when it came back on it sounded wrong. I went over to look at it. reset the processor, no fix. shut off the transmitter, killed the breaker and powered back up but it woudln't turn back on. No power at all. i turn the breaker off and back on.. still no luck. yeah.. things are looking grim. after flipping the breaker on and off about 10 times it finally came back up, got the transmitter up and the exciter sounded proper this time. Mr. meek stuck around and replaced the breaker. came into the office had a dept head meeting till noon,
i forgot what i did this day, went back to work.. that was about it.
Went over to Patti's for the evening and helped setup the christmas tree. it was kinda neat, but i miss doing that at home. I think i'm going to get my own tree. not sure what to put on it.. any ideas?
Got back in town this afternoon, now i'm doing sound at the Jeff Fenholt concert. I can say, he's really mellowed out. Not a rocker anymore. This new album he is singing is all worship music and very, how can i say.. very Hosanna type music. Oh well, it's a nice way to chill out at the end of a long weekend at least. whoa, just about screwed up in that one.. but i fixed it.. no one noticed. You know your doing a good sound job when no one notices what you do. Just three more tracks and then we'll all be over.
Oh yeah, i never finished my story from last week. Well, i went to saturn to get my oil changed. I was walking around the show room and they had Saturn VUE on display. I was looking around it and for a long while i'd been thinking in the back of my head that i'd like a SUV. I got to drive Lori's a few times, i really liked it. Being up high, having room for your legs and everyone elses. My sister also has one that she loves. She claimed it saved her life when she had that accident. The few times i've had accidents my car is always the victium. So I talked to the sales rep, mostly cause i was bored and wanted some entertianment. We looked around, i picked out a color and some specs i lwas looking for. At first i was eyeing a black V6 and i even got to test drive it. I loved the way it drove. But when i started to think seriously about it. "what is it i'd really like in a car" so i looked at a few more. I found a silver one, same as my old car. This one had leather seats. It even had on-star and all wheel drive. It was also a V6. So this became my new car.
i went to have my oil changed today..
more details of the experience to follow. Stay tunned.
We had turkey yesterday at work, today i went home to San Isidro for more turkey, went to the Leals for more turkey but they are having some plumbing problems. So i'll be back there in a minute for even more turkey.
Last night i had dinner with the Leal's at there church. This is the third year i think i've gotten to go with them. There was so much food and all of it was good but i'm trying to pace myself for a busy eating week.
We have early release today! I feel like a kid at school. Some people brought there kids to work. Troy came by with Logan, his new daughter (troys, not logans) his wife and some other lady. She's almost two months. (sigh)
I'm going to get my oil changed, then i'll be in san isidro tommrow than that evening having dinner at the Leals. Friday we're going to San Antonio and then the next day to Corpus. I'm so looking for to this weekend. I'm ready to get out of here. San Benito is playing at the Almodome but i'm unloading the scoop before i leave today.. as a matter of fact.. i'm going to go do that right now..
Building the desk Part 2
Ok.. the people who made this instructions need to be drug out to the street and shot. First, i made the desk with the drawers on both sides.
Then they say to put the side pannel. with the extra keyboard drawer but they say to remove the left side drawers and put this side thingy in it's place (long sigh) ok fine..
Then we have this return thing that goes in the side and the side thing goes in the back.. so they say... take off the side thing from the side and move it to the back and put the return on the side instead. (fustrated sigh) yeah.. so we got all that assembled for the 3rd time but now there is a credenza thing that goes on top of the back part which was really the side thing which has the drawers from the front desk thing. But on of the pices had a slight bit of dammage so told them to send it back so i got the rest of the day to actually do IT work. yeah.
Now, now... just because you actually had to break out the instructions to get through the desk assembly project??? You guys act as if it's some kind of a breach of the Men's Code of Building Ethics to actually LOOK at that silly little peice of paper. All you have to do is look at the pictures! You know... i remember a story about a couple of guys that worked at a local bank that got a huge box in one day. In their excitment to get the new toy out of the crate in which it was locked into, they promptly tossed aside the instructions that said "READ THIS BEFORE YOU BEGIN". Several hours later, frustrated at the fact that the new toy still bolted in the crate, they pull those instructions out of the trash only to discover that the wrench needed to uncrate the new toy, was on the bottom of the crate to begin with......... I wonder what ever happened to those guys anyway?
Ok.. so i spent the entire day putting together a desk for our new GM. Btw, he starts on the 1st of december, like like almost a week away. so anyway. i spend all day putting together this desk. and it's not just a desk. I think sandy picked out the biggest, most elaborate (and most heavy) desk they could find! You know the desk they use as a model on the front page of there website,, Yeah, that's the desk i'm building.
And a conference table. I could probably leave it to the techs to figure out but it would take them days. Honestly though, you have to have some skill and experience in putting these things together. I remember once even getting hired by some lady to assemble one of these things for her.
My back is still sore from last night. We were doing angelfood distribution. I got to carry people's boxes to there car and loading the pallets.
I got to see Mrs. Carlson this morning! She came by the booth during service this morning. That was a real treat to see her again. It's been a long while. I think since easter? Rachel and Brice are comming over to pick up there food from Angelfood today. I'm going to try and make lunch for them. They've done so much for me.. it's the least i can do. This afternoon is Risa's part, talk about waiting till the last minute to buy a gift. It's just hard to find the perfect gift for some people. Not that she's hard to get stuff for.. but it's hard to find that one perfect gift.
San Benito Wins!!! 43 to 18 i think. It was really good. Reza got hurt last week and the 2nd QB got hurt this time.. so next week will be sad. But oh well.. they did good. It was a celebration after the clock ran out. Fireworks and all. They deserved it.
