Saturday night...

Well it's Saturday night and I'm about to head off to bed. Being the wild party animal that I am I'm not sure I'll make it past midnight anyway. It's been a busy day...that seems to be the trend for weekends anymore. We went out for breakfast then stopped at Home Depot (always fun) to pick up supplies to continue the eradication of white walls from the house. This time I'm finishing up in the living room, painting the walls that didn't get the red treatment last time. I spent about 6.5 hours today moving furniture, taking down blinds and curtains, removing power outlet covers, and masking off windows and trim. I've used about 300' of blue tape in the last few hours, but that was easy to do when there are five windows each 10' tall, and two 5' high windows as well. Add in a with door with decorative molding, wooden sills on all the windows, and a lot of baseboard and there's the 300' of tape. I'll get up bright and early (okay, bright and early for me on a's all relative) tomorrow and start painting. I'm thinking I can get this part done in one day. Oh yeah, while I still had the tools out I replaced the guts of the kitchen faucet because of a leak. It feels good to be productive.

C posted his results of a "career matchmaker" quiz so of course I took the same quiz. Put in Username: nycareers and Password: landmark. Choose the "Career Matchmaker" option.

I'm not so sure about my results, but then again, I have always like taking things apart and putting them back together, so something mechanical makes sense. I'm currently working as a number 12 (at least part of my job) and at one point I did consider an Engineering degree.
