happytoast power lines

final design

All set. The black and white design is with the tattoo artist and I have an appointment next weekend to get the black portion done. I've edited the design a little more, and the artist will do some more touch ups on the black and white copy. I'm a little nervous and excited- the piece will be five inches on a side, between my shoulder blades.

This design has been in planning for one, maybe two years (update- 3yrs, since '99) now and I think I'm ready.

Been away from my laptop a lot doing validation work. This is interesting and I think it will serve to boost my career opportunities. Meanwhile, another one bites the dust at my office- the ranks are really thinning as our competitors sap our resources. Collapse )

I still have this oracle test lingering over my head. I'm done with the reading and I've actually powered through Fundamentals I and Backup/Recovery as well, but I need some time to get refamiliar with SQL*plus. It's a truly crap editor, but if I'm ever going to call myself an oracle person I've got to reduce my dependence on notepad and vi. July. I'll have the initial inking on my tat done next weekend, then have the color added early august, and do my Oracle test in July.

I slept most of today and I'm still tired. This job (four straight weeks) is sapping my strength. Week after this one I'll be in Toronto. I think I'd like to take a long weekend vacation, maybe in September/October, to Las Vegas. We'll see what happens with the user group meeting, if I go to Seattle. If I'm still employed... ugh.

be seeing you!
