Happy Thursday, GN!

Heavenly Father, Your kingdom is beautiful. As I walk this earth today, may I be reminded of all its beauty and its almighty creator. Thank You for the soil we walk on, the air we breathe, and the colorful landscape that fills our hearts with joy. May we take care of this world and remember our blessings. May we live amongst the beautiful nature peacefully, for it is all a part of Your kingdom, Father. Amen.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!

“Welcome to Shangri-llama. Alpaca your bags.”

My part of the authorizer review went well, yesterday. The rest of the day was jam-packed, including an unexpected late-afternoon IEP. The person who was supposed to run the meeting has a pulmonary embolism and wasn’t able to make it. That put me behind on two meetings I have this morning. Oh, well.

Paddy’O, I trust you can’t expect a pulmonary embolism for your troubles. That’s a terrible door prize! Do take care, Sir. It sounds as though burning the candle at both ends is your regular mode.

Ambassador Plaguie! How wonderful to see you! I hope that scoundrel dv8 hasn’t been running you ragged.

Nope, don’t want a pulmonary embolism. No ma’am!
Busy-ness can be a goodness and is often better than boredom. I can’t complain (but somehow I still seem to).

Morning GN, A bit preoccupied myself. Trying to start a new software project. Haven’t done a big one in a decade. Don’t know if I have it in me anymore.

Well…. Start small and expand the project--just like last time. Go for one proof of concept feature, and then expand on it. That’s how the worlds best spaghetti code is written : )

Coincidentally, I’m working a POC for a software project too -- I’m a bit stuck on the verification process, like does it work and how to test it. I don’t want to do strict test case. As usual, I have no guidance from mgmt or proj mgmt.

Sven, I thought you having no guidance from management was the way it was usually done.

You caught me, Miss Harper, but when I specifically called them out, publicly, by asking just what it is I am supposed to be proving, I thought that would generate discussion other than crickets. I was wrong.

I believe the sound of crickets is direction that you simply missed, Sven. A koan, perhaps? Maybe you’re supposed to put one sandal on your head and walk away from this one.

I have this delightful image in my mind of Sven in his manager’s office; pacing in a circle, balancing one sandal on his head and muuuuing like a particularly lugubrious French cow until his manager gives in and tells him what to do.

Did someone say, “spaghetti code”? Yummm, old fashioned…

Glad to hear Fatwa and co. are okay. Time to sleep for work tonight.

They look so quiet when they sleep. I mean ” sweet”! They look so sweet when they sleep!

I’ll bet dv8 wishes our girl would give us some grandchildren so I’d stop watching him sleep!

Seeing some of the impeachment highlights from today and dreading the spectacle from Trump’s “legal team” I think the mistake Trump is making is treating this as a legitimate legal proceeding. Instead of a team of lawyers or scholars, he should have gone with a Mark Levin, Steven Crowder, Dave Rubin, Leo Terrell, Larry Elder team of advocates that could lay out the case against the Dems. And do so without mercy.
