What the Boss Likes – a random assortment of things

Haven’t had much of an urge to write a blog post lately. Work has become a real pain since I have a new boss who doesn’t know anything about the job and who hates using computers. Of course, that’s all we use and trying to get new boss to do anything is damn near impossible.

But if that’s the worst of my problems, I’m not doing bad.

We watched the movie Logan last night, the last of the trilogy about Wolverine.   I’ve been a fan of the X-Men for a long time, first picking up the comic book around the time of the Phoenix saga. I always loved the interplay between Logan and Kurt aka Nightcrawler. The movie was very good, extremely violent (you see exactly what does happen when someone gets three adamantium claws through their head) and I have to say that I just loved Laura, having spent a decent part of my growing up wanting to be Wolverine.

This weekend we also got a pair of new appliances (General Electric) for the kitchen, in preparation for the Great Kitchen Remodel of 2017. We have an old house, circa early 20th c, and the kitchen is simply worn out. The month of December will be the gutting (yay, plaster and lath) and rebuilding of the kitchen. The new fridge is a split door up top and the freezer on the bottom. My tall spouse very much likes that set up. The stove is gas, and has a griddle in the center and I finally got a broiler again. They are stainless steel since our kitchen is very dark and we need some light bouncing around.

Finally got a chance to try Apothic’s Inferno, a red blend that’s been aged in bourbon casks. It has a very nice mellowness from the oak. They are very manipulated wines and I like them a lot. I saw out on their website that they now have a bubbly. I’ll have to try that soon.

That’s about it. I’m busy looking for a new job and just waiting until the chaos of construction is unleashed.

  1. Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, I have been busier than ever of late. My blog has suffered, my time to visit my preferrerd blogs has suffered, my family time has suffered, my ME time has suffered, my body has suffered. I am anxiuos to return to my days of sloth.

    Oh, there should be some sort of law on projects. Something along the lines of ” every project no matter how small will exceed the original budget by 3x.”
