|Bad Godzilla! Drop that rhino, right now!|
Greetings, all! I'm sorry for the scarcity of posts as of late, but life has been busy and complicated. Tomorrow, I get on the plane for San Francisco! In looking for maps and background information, I ran across this unfortunate story on Google news. It appears that an undersea earthquake caused the usual awaking of giant monsters. Poor San Francisco!
Thank goodness local emergency management officials planned ahead and built up their inventory of giant robots! The battle of the titans will no doubt cause much damage and chaos. However, this is a near montly event in the Bay Area. I have faith that the BART will still be running on time.
As for this beautiful city, I probably won't see a lot of it. I am attending Greenbuild; the main event for everything related to sustainable buildings. The sessions will be great along with four evening receptions and a day spent with the third-party laboratory and certifier I work with. Yes, pity me. I will be trapped inside a convention center from sunup to sundown.
There is supposed to be a really nice typewriter shop in Berkeley. I'll be within a mile or two of it during some Monday meetings, but probably won't make it there. <sigh> I most likely will make it to the Super7 store! It is home to many amazing vinyl monsters and is pretty much Nerdvana.
It will be a week or two before the next entry. The recent event summary goes like this: My oldest daughter has been down with a migraine for several days. We tried to deal with the swirling vortex of leafpocalypse today. The wind is not helping. I did a major garage cleaning and organizing binge last weekend and now have some great rolling racks. The garage work bench is once again clear and I can work on my latest acquisition. I'll blog it later, but here is a little preview. No, you should not be worried - much.
As Claire noted, it is extremely beige. I'm thinking it will need to be repainted dark gray. Isn't this a nice look?
I look forward to sharing some pics from San Francisco and the Greenbuild Expo. My employer is exhibiting, but I stopped working the booth a couple years ago to immerse myself in the education and networking activities. This year I get to check out the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Google's Green Team lair. Nice.
