Jack-o-Lanterns

Jack-o-Lanterns

Happy Halloween everyone.

Halloween1I love this holiday.This week week Hannah and I along with some friends picked out some pumpkins to make Jack-o-Lanterns. We made a mistake this year by waiting to long to by the pumpkins. By the time we went out to get them only one store in all of Juneau had some. As a result they where a little more pricey.Halloween2

But we brought the pumpkins back to the apartment to carve. I spent some time removing all the seeds and hollowing out the sides a bit. Hannah picked out a pattern and we went to down on it. The end result turned out very well.

The weather this year is a little warmer then it was last year around this time. I remember the Jack-O-Lanterns lasting weeks last year because it was so cold.

We finished up the night by placing the Jack-o-Lanterns outside, playing a little Guitar Hero 3 on our Wii, and watching some Firefly.

Just Another Day At Work

This morning at work has been busier then normal. Juneau experienced a power outage last night. So this morning we have all be busy trying to pick up the fallen pieces of down servers and panicked clients.

Since he got into the office this morning, Zaine (one of my co-workers) has been trouble shooting a VOIP phone server installation we have been having issues with. Normally Chris works on issues like this but he recently handed it off for Zaine to work on.

So the office is half empty and those of us here are hard at work when out from the corner of the office I hear Zaine shout at full volume “Someone here owes me a fucking blow job!”

Now Zaine is known for saying off the wall things at random times. But this could not have been at a more perfect time because just as he shouted “Someone here owes me a fucking blow job!” someone from down the hall walks by our open office door and and just busts out laughing which caused all of us in our office to burst out in laughter.

After Zaine’s face color, which was a bright red returned back to normal. He finally explained “I just did something in 1 hour that Chris has been working on for over week”.

It’s having stories like this to tell over, and over that make my day.

Rotary Park

Last Friday we had a little bit o good weather. So when Hannah and i got off of work we decided to go out side and play. We went down to Rotary Park to feed the ducks and walk the dog. We also just happened to have the camera with us so we took a bunch of pictures.

The Days here are getting shorter fast. We are losing something like 6 minutes of day light a day. Soon it will be dark all the time.
