The days march onward, and sometimes it's the same old drudge work, although there's some new technology that I'm just itching to learn, which will only help me when I get off the 'Ice'. I know in the back of my mind that if I don't plan out things, it will be September with nothing accomplished. I opened a notebook that I skua'd which had the following on the first page:
"Work keeps us from three great evils: boredom, vice, and poverty.-- Voltaire"
I think that says it all for us down here.
On another note, this weekend was one of our rare two-day weekends. Usually we work Monday-Saturday, so this felt like work back home. There was an organized run on Saturday called the BF5K. It was started last year by one of the guys here - Kevin, who's nickname is 'BFK'. As you might guess, he's a little on the heavy side. Anyway it was a theme run. Runners had to wear a costume and also needed a 'sponsor'. We ran the length of the 1st and 2nd floors of the station 18 times. Every 3 laps our 'sponsor' had to drink (beverage of choice).
Later in the evening we had a Scotch tasting event. Can you see a pattern here with alcohol?
