Are You Waitin’ on a Woman?

Where do I start today? Do you want the good news or the bad news? Well, I guess I’ll start with the bad news and at the beginning. The day didn’t start off so well. I’m sure some feelings were hurt and I know that it wasn’t done in the best way possible by me. Never-less the time had presented itself and I felt it was best to get it out there.

I spent most of the day in the office speaking RS-232 ASCII. It wasn’t so fun all the time and was quite frustrating trying to figure out what the heck was getting in the way. In the end we played with enough things and were finally able to get it to work. The process of learning new things can always be interesting. It was probably good that I didn’t interact much with customers and so forth as I know I didn’t have my happy face on and I didn’t like that. I think Effie was really ready to send me home more than once.

I met up with Alison tonight and we tried Penfolds Cattle Company. Aside from the fact that i was way underdressed it was alright. It was better than Outback for sure, but also considerably more expensive. It wasn’t quite Ruth’s Chris in quality or price, but not bad once you factor in not having to drive and make reservations. I really needed to talk to her and hear about what was going on with her instead of focusing on my own problems like I have been doing for the past week. I’m supposed to come up with a surprise place for us to go next week and of course I got in trouble for cheating on her with Oscar’s last week.

Well, I guess I’d better call it a night before midnight tonight and hope that I can get some sleep without tossing and turning all night. Tomorrow should be another fun day of programming and working in the field. Let’s hope I do a bit better in the friendship department tomorrow.

Carino’s with Alison

Today was fairly quiet at the office. It was just Tara and I. I think we did a good job handling everything that kept coming in and got the stuff we needed to get done done. I got payroll done way before the deadline which is odd for me especially since I got a late start after going to the GT this morning to hook up an iPod and make iTunes happy.

So much for my quiet evening at home: Alison and I went out to Johnny Carino’s tonight. I was getting ready to leave the office when she called and I wasn’t sure what I was going to do since there were no dinner plans at home, so I was happy to hear from her. I had to spend some more time waiting at the office, but I got to clean some things up and go through some pictures to order prints from Costco. The prints won’t be ready till the morning, but at least I’m a step closer than I have been. I couldn’t believe the wait we found at Macaroni Grill, so I decided to call Olive Garden and Carino’s. The wait was about half the time it was at Mac, so we went there. I didn’t have lunch so i was stating and seriously ready for some food. The M&M’s could only take me so far.

Now I think I’m off to bed. I’m hoping to get up early enough for President Hinckley’s funeral in the morning and then am thinking about a trip to the temple. Maybe I’ll go early enough to enjoy an evening at home tomorrow… Maybe if I had the BYU channel I could watch the funeral from home instead of going to the stake center, but I don’t think I can justify $50/month for Dish or DirecTV just to get the BYU channel which I would probably watch about as much as I watch the other 200 TV channels I already have.
