Lazy man is lazy

Let's see, time to catch up.

Jennifer and I are making our last plans before our trip. We've got a town car taking us to the airport so we don't have to drive or take BART. Holly is being good enough to check in on Pom while we're gone. And I'll be packing Friday night. Jennifer on the other hand has packed and repacked for about three weeks.

Today I went to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. As a former fan of the unexplained, I enjoyed the use of the crystal skull, even if it was not the typical one you see in the books. I enjoyed the movie, and got a kick out of all the cliches and fan nods. The best way to go into seeing it is to remember the progression of pulp fiction. Cliffhanger adventures and Nazis during World War II in the forties and then a shift to things related to the atomic age in the fifties. And Russians.

My reading now is a compilation of Peanuts comics. I collecting the hardbacks, and am presently on the fifth book, 1959-1960. I have three others after this one. I am hoping that some of the books I've requested come into the library tomorrow. Otherwise I'm going to have to scramble for something to read on the trip. More likely it will be re-read.

At work I'm almost done with my budgeting and forecasting. I've left my busiest site for last. It's my site in Stockton with the recently discovered UST. I have that to budget as well as a future investigation, some well installations, a system install, a few years of monitoring, and then the system decommission and well destructions. I think our target date is around 2017.

It puts a whole new spin on the question: Where do you see yourself in ten years?

In ten years? Dreading my 50th birthday and learning to adapt to a rising sea level.
