Today was better. I'm still cheesed off by my colleagues' behavior and general unreasonableness, but it was too nice of a day to be pissed off. I even went out for lunch with a couple of folks from work. We hit up Creo' which is an upscale restaurant not too far from work. I've never been there before so it counts as a new restaurant for my challenge. I had a chicken sandwich with some fries and the sandwich was really good. I'd definitely go back there again.
I managed to avoid going to a single real meeting today which is pretty tough to do. Fortunately a couple were canceled. I'm not sure I would've gone to them anyhow.
It's going to be even nicer tomorrow so I need to think of stuff to get and keep me outside. I need to rake some leaves, but perhaps I'll hit up the nursery to get a pear tree, a blueberry plant and maybe a raspberry bush. I know I should be saving money for my roof, but I found out today I should be getting around a grand for submitting a patent a couple of weeks ago. A hundred dollars' worth of plants isn't going to make a big difference. I'll ask them about ordering up winterberry holly as well so I can try to shrink the pond in my front yard.
I think I'll dig a spot for my herb garden as well. I'm not quite ready to plant because it hasn't been above 40F for every night the past couple of weeks. I can wait a little bit longer and still be alright.
This warm weather has got me thinking about motorcycles. I have an item on my challenge list to take a motorcycle riding program. I wonder how much it'd be for a used bike. I know they aren't the safest things in the world, but you need to own your fear; you can't let it own you. I'm a pretty careful dude and I wouldn't get a crotch-rocket.
The Blazers got jacked by Denver last night. Weak sauce for sure, but Portland clinched a playoff spot earlier this week. I'm hoping I can find a place to watch the games.
