    Watched a Redfox hunt down and carry off a small vole this early am while walking to work. It was nearly light out in that "bewitching hour" before color hues are coming alive. The fox and I have been watching each other over the last few weeks. Made up for the -5 degree temp and bitter wind.

    I'm not an engineer but I play one on TV. I designed something that passed a 10,000 amp short circuit test. That's not easy and it feels pretty good.

    I am an actual engineer and want details.

    Remember two weeks ago when my employer added an adoption benefit? This week I found out about a couple with a baby girl on the way who are considering adoption. I might have a daughter in January! Not a sure thing, but we're hoping it works out.

    76 degrees today after temps in the 20's last week. A dry day tomorrow will make up for exam stress.

    I saw this Wednesday morning, but it's made my week. You'll need to be in a New York state of mind to appreciate.

    It was about 8 am, 23 degrees, and I was heading to Bellevue for my first round of PT. As I walked down 1st Ave to the hospital, I passed a gentleman in a waaay-too-small latex batgirl dress, and with the "HOLLA" tattooed on his forehead. He had his morning coffee and cigarette, and was mouthing words to himself.

    He looked like he was heading home in the morning light. He looked like he'd just finished his shift at the dungeon. He looked as if he'd spent all night serving as a hole for anyone and everyone. He looked like whatever he'd just been through had quieted the voices in his head, even if it was just for a short period of time.

    He looked happy.
    I had to laugh. I was happy for him.

    One of those New York moments.

    Dallas Santa Rampage is tomorrow. I'd describe it as Mardi Gras for folks dressed like Santa.

    They call that SantaCon here in NYC. It's a shitshow, but there's snow in the forecast so it may dull the crowds.

    With a slowdown in work and the semester coming to a close I may actually have some time to ride for two weeks...until things get crazy once more, but I'll take those two weeks.

    I'm on the boat today cruising on at 25mph. my visor flies off. S

    So we go back around to get it with a hook, but trying to grab a floating visor from a big ol' boat is not so easy.

    After our first miss at it a younger guy on a jet ski zooms up, grabs it and tosses it to me! How cool is that?

    The vid from OP got deleted by the user. Here's another. I would really like to think that a man who endured what Mandela did, and came out of it all so Human....probably had a really good sense of humor and while being somewhat appalled that something like this could happen...would also find it a complete hoot.

    My employer shuts down from Christmas to New Years. This year they added an extra day off on Monday so I don't work again until next year.

    Also, (this doesn't affect me but I think it's cool) they ate the health insurance premium increases for all wage employees. This is not a union shop, but I think our wage folks are treated pretty well.
