but when you’ve actually got a business to run, well – you fret all night and decide to get up at a reasonable hour, that’s all.

Mel and I did the dance that creates a business yesterday in the Durham City building – a bit of Planning Dept. forms for Home Occupation, then a swing through the Business Permits office (very nice lady there!) and here we are – Nerd Fury, LLC, privileged to do business in Durhamtown!

Rose at Wachovia helped get us a business checking account, and soon we’ll have our very own miniature desk-style business check starter set, with Old English font and a black binder color!! Whooooo Hooooo!!!! Oh yeah – they like us – they really really like us!

Shari rang yesterday to share that she’s Escaped into a small Ford SUV, and that both she and David rolled out to Naz with Justin. ‘Cause his Saturn didn’t carry all his stuff. Huh… I mock because I kid, really.

Seems like this weekend will be filled with all sorts of goodness – Carrie and Nate-dogg in from the Left Coast, MickeyMatt rollin in from considerably closer. Now, if Cozy Bear can only fix my AirCon, well, it’ll be a party, I tell ya!

My head is made of rocks, Boo’s a sensitive gal who has a bout of poison Ivy making her ankle all sad, Viv’s backyard reveal went wonderfully (all I need to do is get the video onto Youtube), and as we roll into the last week of the 8th month of Durhamite-mania, things are good. Perhaps Myrna’s like a big old good-luck talisman, you know – like the TikiGod idol Peter picked up in Hawaii!!!

a little update – please continue to visit my Flickr page for pics of things happening/happened. Get yourself an account and ask to be my friend/family – there’s some pics the public can’t see…

Ciao,

Boo singing a Dickens tune!

hot. humid. huh – summer on the east coast. Thank goodness for Air Conditioning… oh – what’s that? it’s busted? hmmmm…. thank goodness for the kindness of friends – loaned window fans make it sleepable, and an open invitation to the most cooled kitchen on Elgin street makes this past week doable.

Let’s see what Cozy Bear AC repair can do today!

Did you see Boo’s note on the brick to my head? Yeah, that was the other day, and boy does a brick to the head smart. Gonna leave a mark, too! But I survive, to go help move a half ton of mulch another day! Manual labor during the summer months here on the east coast – not so much a big fan of. Lazy days at the beach – much better, and can’t come too soon!

Nerd Fury rises from the ground – funny how you’ll ponder work 20 hours a day when it’s YOUR work.

Stardust is a must see – if you like the Princess Bride, you’ll like Stardust…

Helping friends who want to fix up a friends RV is cool, a good thing to do. Think about how much closer to the sun you are when you’re putting a tarp up over the roof to keep the weather at bay. Also, make sure there aren’t a lot of bricks up there!

hey – it’s Mel’s B-Day – happy birthday to Mel, Happy birthday to Mel, happy birthday to Mel – now she’s as old as me!

things grow instantly after a rain – brown ‘dormant’ (dead?) lawn one day, an overnight thunderstorm – shazam – green lawn that needs to be cut. wow.

things are good. Only getting better – yay!!!

“It’s hot. I’m done with it. Can we move on to the pleasant weather?” my boo asks.

Of course, we were just at the Beach, and she liked it there. Oh, I think I made that set ‘Friends and Family’, so get yourself a Flickr account, and ping me to make you a friend. or family!

well. as often happens, the above lines were written with the best intentions of post-age. Oops.

So, as I sit in the living room, CSI:Miami on the tube, the pups hoping to get more nibbles, I’ll say this –

wow…
ok. now it’s Saturday evening… heading over to get a nibble soon with Brendan and Raymond. Boo and I gave a hand over at the secret project, and whoa – labor under the sun for friends is awesome, and made me remember the times and joy I had helping Declan at the Waving Goodbye set build. Weee…. ugh… ow.

it’s not murderously hot today, and that’s been such a pleasant change. made being outside good. Met a few new peeps – yay!

Ok. Gonna go and finish getting ready to run out… just the littlest of notes to say “hey – still here – still doing lots and lots…”

ciao,
