Right-O, Mr Owl! Lock the door, hide the key, and fire up the grill on T-Day. His is gonna be goooooood!


Lil's been burning brain cells over a bed of burning DCOs and other acronyms. I was supposed to be half hands-on and half book training, but first my lead got sick, and then the guy I was supposed to be shadowing get sent to build a different robot, and I got left at the computer trying to stay awake through 30+ important documents. You know, the more important it is, the drier it gets. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Hey, I just went through this at my last job! Grrr!

I was also having fun trying to get my shoe ASD thingees to ASD properly. The test machine kept telling me to go back and do it again. And at the end of the day, I forgot and drove home with them on.

Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to build a robot arm. I hope I hope I hope!

Goodness, my little boy was so super upset tonight after I showed him our new ant farm and then tried unsuccessfully to explain that we weren't actually going to an "ant farm".

Sheeeesh...2 yr olds are sooo sensitive!

Turkey Day is also Pumpkin-Chunkin' Day on the Science Channel. For those who don't know, Pumpkin Chunkin' is a competition wherein competitors use machines (in 6 categories) to launch pumpkins as far as possible. Nobody has sent a pumpkin a mile. . . yet. But they've gone well over 4000 feet.

It all started with the "pumpkin farm" for halloween.....

(ok, i'm so sick of automatic spellcheck. Hell, spellcheck itself was just red-underlined as misspelled. I'm a decent speller. But a few threads back I spent a solid minute trying to properly combine letters to spell "unsuccessfully" and now I can't even get past "Halloween" Dammit! I spelled it properly right away...but wrong?! and now "It" is right and I'm still wrong somehow...KEITH!!! I need a computer-smashing hammer-ctrl-alt-del smilie STAT!)

sigh...it was the capital H that got me



....and He's got such an amazing memory that he still asks about singular events that happened at 18 months age (currently 26 months old)... So we went to the "farm" once and he's hook-line-sinker absorbed with "farms".

Can't wait to launch the Fling up for my 8 year old to fly it. She flies well on the simulator, however she likes to crash. That is her favorite part, :/ Going to bungee launch from our camp site! Nice

I've got blissstars Loktite on my feeeeengars!

Had a good day, I started learning the A build on the arm our group builds. It took me nearly all day to get about 80% done -- on a 3-hour build. I did about 90% of that, I'll do all of the next one. He he!

Even cooler is that, because I have a certified instructor rigth there with me, that arm is going on, and will be used on a real unit. How cool!
