Whatever, just crash it Bob...


They are tearing up the parking lot right across the street from where I work, and it's actually very interesting to watch.

They only started 2 days ago, on Wednesday. When I was walking in to work they were just starting to pull up trees and pillars. By mid-day we couldnt tear ourselves away from the window, they were nearly done ripping up the concrete already. Today they were scooping up huge pieces of concrete and dumping it into a big dump truck. Not like a dump truck. Like an 18 wheeler.

There is a big chainlink fence up around the site, and I noticed something today. Guys stop and watch these construction workers work. Lots of guys. They line up along the fence ..with their hands raised and hooked into the holes of the chain link and just watch. It's funny, really. They look like little kids. Im not sure if the attraction is just the big vehicles, the noise, the dust, or what. But they like it. I just wish they weren't putting up a damn sculpture there. We are losing a huge prime piece of real estate in downtown Denver for a sculpture. It's like a block square, seriously. Please.

Board (bored) meeting today. Groan. Got home at 5:40 and Daniel immediately wanted to go to the store. I finally sat down around 6:10. I hate these long days. His first PO meeting is tomorrow. Cross your fingers. I get the impression from the phone calls Ive had already with this guy that he really doesn't give a shit. One of the first things he told me was "I've got a 250 kid caseload". Oh....sorry about that. Maybe you shouldnt flip your lid everytime you catch a kid with something that maybe could have possibly held marijuana at one time. Get a grip.

Today was Take Your Daughter To Play With The Hole Punch Day. That's really all it is. The only thing we accomplish with taking our kids to work is insuring that they will not follow in our footsteps and do the same job we do. They stand around and are bored in 5 minutes. They discover the 3-hole punch and make confetti. They play solitaire on the computers and just generally annoy everyone. By the end of the day the only thing that is ingrained in their minds is that they will never be caught dead doing what we do.

Staying in tonight. Bummed about that. Maybe will just tape Survivor and watch it together later. I don't think it will be near as much fun if I watch it alone. We'll see. I probably won't be able to stand it..then Drew will come in tomorrow all gushing about what happened and I will have to shuush him. That's no fun. Time to forage and fog. More later.
