05/18/2006 19:24:58Jim Condomese
That is Condo-mese: Language of the Condo...haha.
Sonny lost his car keys
And he didn't have a spare SO...that threw a wrench in things.
However, he did put in an outlet box in the garage.
Becky and I:
- hooked up the lavoratory's sink, (1 hour)
- hung two closet doors, (1 hour)
- hung the sliding glass door blinds. (1 hour)
- Hauled two loads to the dumpster.
Not bad for a day's worth of work.
All thats left now is the:
- Garage door opener. (2 hours)
- Replacing the kitchen sink (2 hours)
- Replacing the front door. (4 hours)
- Replacing the sliding glass door locks with keyed entry. (4 hours)
- Sanding and painting. (1 day)
05/18/2006 01:12:48robert dumb labels lol
Some examples of why the human race has probably evolved as far as possible. These are actual instruction labels on consumer goods...
On Sears hairdryer:
Do not use while sleeping.
(Gee, that's the only time I have to work on my hair!)
On a bag of Fritos:
You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
(The shoplifter special!)
On a bar of Dial soap:
Directions: Use like regular soap.
(and that would be how?)
On some Swann frozen dinners:
Serving suggestion: Defrost.
(But it's 'just' a suggestion!)
On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert: (printed on bottom of the box)
Do not turn upside down.
(Too late! you lose!)
On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding:
Product will be hot after heating.
(Are you sure? Let's experiment.)
On packaging for a Rowenta iron:
Do not iron clothes on body.
(But wouldn't that save more time?)(Whose body?)
On Boot's Children's cough medicine:
Do not drive car or operate machinery.
(We could do a lot to reduce the construction accidents if we just kept those 5 year olds off those fork lifts.)
On Nytol sleep aid:
Warning: may cause drowsiness.
(One would hope!)
On a Korean kitchen knife:
Warning: keep out of children.
(hmm...something must have gotten lost in the translation...)
On a string of Christmas lights:
For indoor or outdoor use only.
(As opposed to use in outer space.)
On a food processor:
Not to be used for the other use.
(Now I'm curious.)
On Sainsbury's peanuts:
Warning: contains nuts.
(but no peas?)
On an American Airlines packet of nuts:
Instructions: open packet, eat nuts.
(somebody got paid big bucks to write this one...)
On a Swedish chainsaw:
Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands.
(Raise your hand if you've tried this...)
On a child's Superman costume:
Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly.
(Oh go ahead! That's right, destroy a universal childhood belief
05/15/2006 11:03:17Jim Sonnys Vacation
Yipee. Two weeks.
05/13/2006 01:00:00Jim Asthma Screening
Free-St. Rose Siena Hospital, 3001 St. Rose Parkway
05/13/2006 00:28:41Jim Picked up 2 blinds for the condo today.
Plus a faucet for the bathroom. I didn't pick up a drain stem though...oops. Picky little things lik that drive me nuts
05/12/2006 13:40:22Jim The powerlite bulb arrived this morning
Amazing!!! So fast!!!
05/11/2006 17:10:17Jim Ordered Epson Powerlite S3 lamp
From pcmall.com (EPSV13HOL33) $203. Should be here tommorrow.
05/09/2006 01:01:06Jim Range and Hood delivery
Contact number is 866-433-5879
05/08/2006 23:18:17Jim Went shopping. I must love returning items.
Bought a vanity.
It was cracked.
Had to take it back.
We installed the new one, but it didn't have a faucet. :(
Bought a bathtub spout.
But it didn't fit.
Had to take it back.
Sound like a pattern?
It happens everytime I do house repairs.
Trips back and forth take more time than the installation.
05/08/2006 04:08:04Jim Still feeling badly
I took a couple of those pharmacudical uplifters.
They finally kicked in around 10pm. Now it's late! ANYWAY...
I cut the top and bottom channels for the condo's closets.
They look good.
I straightened up the tool room.
It seemed unfair that I'm getting Sonny to throw away his junk, while I'm keeping mine.
The room's clean now, but its poorly organized.
Becky was feeling bad today.
She did a lot of work last night help Robert move.
05/07/2006 06:23:47Jim My eyes itch, my skin feels itch
I feel tired. Exhausted even. My breathing is labored, and I feel like someone is sitting on my chest.
Damn, I'm tired of feeling run down.
05/06/2006 23:11:38Jim Robert moved today
Becky help him move his stuff up the stairs. I was just to drained to help.
05/06/2006 21:57:30Jim Robert and Joy moved out today
We picked up the Uhaul. Robert loaded it up, and unloaded it. Becky helped him some.
I didn't help cause I'm already in enough trouble with my health. (I'll be glad when/if this finally clears up).
05/06/2006 12:03:06Jim Roberts Address
Address: 1804 W Bonanza #23, 89106
Home Phone: 702-648-6854
05/05/2006 19:42:07Jim Sonny goes back to work.
Big vacation ends.
05/01/2006 20:03:05Jim If I am never to get any better
If these bad health issues I'm having are a signal of an end coming, I got to say, I'm not afraid.
In the end, we all must realize everything we did, all the things we believed, and all we held true, were myths.
Life is just a box of dreams. None of this can be proven to be real. If the present is more real than the future, and the past is more real than the present, but the past is just a memory, then this is all a dream.

04/21/2006 20:09:22becky .Aint that little bird so cute.
I woke up at 8am. Took a shower checked on

team working together. I know that you are
so sweet. I'm here for you. I love you so
much. How was your night? I heard you

04/21/2006 03:30:50becky To My Love
I had a great time tonight. Hush Puppy's was very nice. It was nice seeing
Red Rock, Blue Diamond. I Love you sooooooo much.
04/21/2006 00:29:33Jim Fixed the stove
Stoves - Its amazing people have survived as a species. The stove (standard) changed sometime ago. I've been to 3 places and spend more than 8 hours, just looking for adapters to make a stupid gas hose work. Sometime ago, the standard changed from 1/2" to 9/16's of an inch. Thats a 1/16th inch difference. That makes no since to me...AT ALL.
Bonnie Springs - toyed with the peacocks. There menu was very basic for dinner.
Red Rock Casino - didn't go in though, it was packed. I can't imagine why people out there complained about a casino near Red Rock Canyon. There's a Best Buy closer to the canyon.
Hush Puppies - Our waitress was tweeking.

04/19/2006 13:29:47Jim Cobol Jobs
After say yea to a recruiter this morning for a job in New Hampshire, I decided to read up on Cobol jobs.
Apparently, there are still quite a few of them out there.
The recommendation is to send your resume to the CIO's of the top Fortune 1000 companies.
Cobol programmers are retiring, but their applications are still the heart beat of many companies.
