I get off at 3:00pm now.
Battlestar Galactica is ok. i much enjoyed the original series...however Starbuck is way better looking now!
how does that help me?
Help me JiltedToo, you're my only hope.
Booze, strippers, guns, anything...???
P.S. I worked Monday.
How can I help?
I didn't work on Monday.
I'm getting really sleepy.. someone wake me up!!
Wake up! There's not much going on today.
Well you need to be designing me some streets over in the valley because Coldwater Canyon is nothing but some potholes.
You can alos pick up the pace on the 710 expansion. Ya know, since ya got so much free time.
The 710 is Caltrans. Not us. Sorry.
JR is in the street section. Have you called your Councilmember to complain? That's the best way to get things done, unfortunately. There is a budget for potholes (actually done by the Bureau of Street Services) and several streets are targeted each year. If you want a street reconstruction, street widening, major street work, etc., that's JR's section.
Yes, the 710 is CalTrans and out of our jurisdiction, as are all freeways and highways.
I would consider this major street work. I like to call the intersection of Moorpark and Coldwater as lake Moorpark now. Even when it isn't raining there are puddles of water in the street. It is very dangerous.
Ah, well that's really the stormwater section's jurisdiction. Or there may be a county storm drain system through there. I'm sort of curious now. I have to check out the situation.
Careful what you wish for Skyryder: they're doing street work on MY section of Moorpark this week (until?): no parking 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on either side. And with lots of apartments around, and most people working at 8 or 9 in the morning, folks are unhappy.
But at least those folks are not HERE all day, working at home, like I am. Because that would mean they'd hear the pounding and grinding that starts up around 6:15 and never stops but for lunch. Every bang sounds like a semi crashing into the apartment, and the apartment shakes as if it were hit, too. And this is about every 10 seconds, mind you. My critters are really wigging.
Ah well, when it all over the street will be all smooth and pretty...and the speeders will be able to go even faster! Endangering the residents and schoolkids even more! Wonder if I could bribe the guys into putting in a speed bump or two !
Well, I hear you JB, but since I don't work at home, I won't have to hear all that noise. Riverside, the street I live on is actually ok, it's just Coldwater that sucks.
I know the guys who put in "speed humps".. but for sure, you're not getting any on Moorpark. Once you put in speed humps, you'll regret doing it forever.
We have some friends who requested speed humps for the street near them. It is weird and I agree with JR, you will regret them.
however Starbuck is way better looking now!
It took awhile getting used to Starbuck being a chick, but now it's almost fitting. She's a good character.
I dig this show, man.
Man, the day just started and I'm pooped. Can I go home yet?
I just finished watching the whole first season of a TV show called Greg the Bunny.
Another amazing show cancelled by FOX after only 13 episodes.
Funniest show I have seen ever.
Greg the Bunny
I feel like I have a hang over without having the party first. My head hurts, I'm tired and my back hurts for some reason too? I think I'm going to take it easy today. Oh wait, I think I do that everyday.
How was everyone's weekend?
I got sick again.. I usually don't get sick, maybe only once a year. But I think I've been sick at least three times in the past 6 months. I don't know what's wrong with me. I also went skiing this past Saturday, which may have been a mistake, since I was sick. It was really warm on the mountain.. I had take of my jacket because I was sweating so much! I really don't know how to ski, so I took lessons. My ears have been plugged up ever since we came down the mountain.. it's really uncomfortable. I don't know what I'm doing here at work today.
What are you talking about, JR? You get sick a lot, probably most of it is psychosomatic. How are your knees?
which mountain did you ski on? Do they little little Japanese boys ski in California?
Feel better. Take Alavert D, its over the counter.
I went to Mt. High. My wife is like a professional skiier or something. I was really impressed with her skills! You would've liked it DB. Since it was warm, all the teenage girls were snowboarding in their tank tops.
Skiing is a lot of fun, sorry you got sick though, JR.
