Gardening on the weekend! [Mar. 30th, 2008|09:33 pm]
cmhicks
This weekend Mike and I finished up most of our gardening work. We basically ripped out everything that I had done last year and most of what he had done and started over. We built brand new raised beds then filled them with some really nice new soil and compost.


Once everything looked good we went ahead and planted a new set of veggies followed by some shrubs. Hopefully you will agree that the garden looks MUCH better this year :)

On the veggie side this year I have planted:
- Turnip
- Radish
- Beat
- Onion
- Snap Peas
- Lettuce
- Green Peppers
- Carrots
- Potato
- Corn (Not sure how this will turn out)
- Pumpkin

Of course I took a bunch of pictures: (Click through to see the annotated versions of the raised beds)Read more...Collapse )

Windows Soda? [Mar. 29th, 2008|12:10 am]

One of my co-workers gave me a can of Windows branded lemon lime soda on Monday requesting that I drink it and return the can to her. I took about one sip and said "Gah!" then poured the rest down the sink. Perhaps this can was a metaphor for Microsoft software in general? Pretty on the outside but nasty on the inside.

I'm back from my trip to SF with Mike.

The kitties survived us being away and didn't seem to cause any trouble other than knocking over all of our shoes!

My co-workers have been asking for more pics of kitties lately so here is a new one: (click on it to see even more)

Today Mater experienced his first snowfall so Mike and I brought him out. He was really interested in exploring our entire snow covered backyard.

Waterloo has been fun. The interviews are going pretty well and the candidates are doing as well/badly as I expected.

While I am here I am focusing on my running a bit. Here are some of my runs.

This Saturday Mike and I went for a run on the waterfront in Seattle. We were about 1 mile into our run bopping to some music and getting into our groove when I start to hear some music coming up from behind us.. ignoring the distraction I keep on running but start to notice the music getting louder and then some hooting and whistling.

Wondering what's up I look to my left and notice notice that one of the waterfront tour buses keeping pace with us. Every single person on the buss was making noises and waving to us as the sound system played the Rocky Theme Song!

Talk about funny. It made my day!

Today at work Frank and Brett decided to make some weapons out of a bunch of patent awards. Think we have enough of these bad boys floating around?

More Fun: Yeah, I miss those parody videos of the past (though the JibJab-esque video was fun!). Sorry, the parodies are much better than having a bunch of rich execs onstage burping for us via an Xbox game. Now, that might make for an interesting start in a parody video... ah, BrianV, you were good for one thing...

Apparently the caveman outfit at our all hands wasn't a one time thing..
