    A day off today. We may have the barn full here, but still have a couple fields to do. But the last of the first cut could be all finished by the end of next week.

    It's ok Flix. Its just that my head can only hold x amount of knowledge so I have to pick and choose which pieces I want to put in there :p ;).

    @Silvery - Hows the little guy doing and your older son? Is he feeling a bit jealous with the new baby or is he enchanted by him?

    I often forgot that other people doesn't enjoy learning stuff as much as I do. I'm a book worm, a nerd, a geek, and all those funny epithets. I'm one of those werido who willingly read all those lorebooks in the Elder Scrolls games, I read every single piece of Codex in Dragon Age and Mass Effect. But you know what ? I'm fine with it, I proudly adorn the badge of all purpose nerd. --

    OK that went too far. Back to inane babbling; I like turtles, they're awesome ancient creature who've walked this earth far longer than humankind ever did. They're just there doin' their thing without a care in the world. Plus they can be ninjas too ! As long as you have green ooze and and a martial art rat expert. I'd like a turtle as a pet.

    Scorpions are fascinating as well, a friend of mine used to have a HUUUUGE Emperor Scorpion, like ten inches long. Interesting pets, to say the least!

    This friend of yours wouldn't happen to be DotW by any chance ? If I recall correctly the guy was rather fond of those. Myself I prefer pets that can't bite, sting, claw or otherwise harm you.

    They're both doing great Dice. Ashley adores being a big brother but he does get bored when he has to sit in the hospital!
    Adam's doing great, he's 3lb 14oz today :D He's on antibiotics at the moment, the doctors think he might have a little infection because his temperature is up a bit but they aren't massively concerned.

    @ Silvery - Well hospitals are a pretty boring place for a little guy like Ashley, at least he is happy about having a little bro. I know that my older boy was overwhelmed and at a loss for words when he first met his. :)

    The hell ?! My Desktop changed its IP adress by itself again. Why ? How ? I'm confused and annoyed and a little concerned. Maybe ghosts did it ? Like Internet ghosts ?

    edit: Oh yeah I had an interview this morning for yet another office clerk job, should have news by next week. Cross your finger for the Flix yeah ?

    Does that mean you are setting the IP address yourself statically? Otherwise there is no reason your IP address shouldn't change.

    No it's maybe the third time it does that, I set up the wifi router about a year ago, it gave every computer in the apartment an IP address, so no I didn't set it myself. It just changes on its own.

    Oh, well if it's your router giving out the addresses to several computers, then unless all those computers are left on all the time, you'd expect the IP addresses to change occasionally as leases expire and new ones are given out.

    Good luck Ofelix!

    So far, I seem to be feeling fairly lucky on my own job hunt. I had an interview this morning, and the guy seemed really impressed. Then I found out that the people I interviewed with on Wednesday morning want me to come in for the next round (a mock teach and then a formal interview). I'm crossing my fingers -- it sounds like a great job!

    Just got back from DC where I spent way too much money on food. I also had blisters on my feet all the time, making it very difficult to walk around and see monuments and things, but I still enjoyed it.

    This afternoon I should be done bailing hay until the second cutting (probably sometime in August), and if there's any more to put in the barn, that will likely be early next week.
