[18:13:56] <cmn32480> ~gday janrinok
[18:13:58] * exec seductively farts a volley of onions at janrinok
[18:17:58] <janrinok> ~gday cmn32480
[18:18:00] * exec diabolically irritates a bathtub of wasabi gummy fish with cmn32480
[18:18:11] * janrinok calls that one a draw
[18:20:00] <cmn32480> yeah
[18:20:03] <cmn32480> most definetly a draw
[18:20:11] <janrinok> how's things with you and the family?
[18:20:24] <cmn32480> we are holding on
[18:20:31] <janrinok> to...?
[18:20:32] <cmn32480> how 'bout you?
[18:20:35] <cmn32480> things going alright?
[18:20:44] <cmn32480> our sanity (barely)
[18:21:16] <janrinok> S is back home again, I managed to complete a fair bit of decorating, but I am busy with various household tasks at the moment
[18:21:39] <cmn32480> but your weeds are still doing well, I hope
[18:22:00] <cmn32480> was it her time for inpatient care?
[18:22:02] <janrinok> they are on my list for destruction at some point
[18:22:17] * cmn32480 has a vague recollection of discussioning that at some point
[18:22:42] <janrinok> no - she was in a respite home so that I could get some rest and do some of the tasks that are impossible while she is here e.g. decorate her room
[18:23:46] <cmn32480> https://www.drpower.com
[18:23:59] <cmn32480> for your weeds
[18:24:26] <janrinok> I've got the local equivalent, and several gas cylinders!
[18:25:50] <n1> janrinok!

[18:26:12] <janrinok> n1!!! how's things?
[18:27:02] <n1> things are crazy, thanks.
[18:27:16] <janrinok> no change there then....
[18:27:24] * cmn32480 si glad he isn't the only one
[18:27:33] <n1> good to hear S is home
[18:27:39] <janrinok> so am I!
[18:28:46] <n1> i worked a few double shifts at a festival, it was like a long weekend off in comparison to normal work these days.
[18:29:03] <janrinok> you enjoyed yourself then?
[18:29:07] <n1> got a chance to take a step back for a few days, even if it was in a muddy field.
[18:29:34] <n1> was a much needed break
[18:29:40] <n1> even if it involved many hours of work lol
[18:29:44] <janrinok> I know _that_ feeling
[18:33:34] <n1> is cmn32480 still on the road?
[18:33:56] <janrinok> don't know - he was here a minute ago
[18:34:19] <janrinok> ... but from where - I dunno!
[18:35:16] <n1> i only recall last time i was really here, he mentioned he'd been adding to his air miles a lot, since then i've been afk, and come back to being exceptionally busy again
[18:35:50] <janrinok> this is my first time back on in well over a week - other than a minute or two
[18:36:11] <n1> seems like we're all lacking time
[18:36:24] <janrinok> yup - it's that time of year again
[18:37:12] <cmn32480> n1 - not on the raod at the moment, but they are looking to send me to Mexico
[18:37:13] <janrinok> looks like bytram will be passing me in the posted stories stakes within a month or so
[18:38:04] <janrinok> are they sending you there to begin the foundations for the wall?
[18:38:13] <n1> cmn32480, sounds good, i'll meet you there ;)
[18:39:31] <cmn32480> sadly no...
[18:39:41] <cmn32480> they are sending me to fix somebody's broken crap
[18:39:49] <cmn32480> I'd rather not go at all
[18:40:12] <janrinok> don't like the place, the job, or just being away from family?
[18:40:48] <cmn32480> kidnapping is a cottage industry in Mexico
[18:40:55] <cmn32480> I'd rather not go at all
[18:41:19] <janrinok> understood - not much chance of pushing it on to someone else?
[18:43:14] <n1> :(
[18:44:14] <cmn32480> none
[18:44:26] <cmn32480> I'm the only one who (almost) has a passport in the dept.
[18:44:50] <janrinok> you stay safe, you hear!?
[18:45:02] <cmn32480> yes Dad
[18:45:41] <janrinok> don't you 'yes Dad' me - just do as you are told for a change. I go away for 5 minutes and look what happens....
[18:45:48] <cmn32480> good grief...
[18:45:55] <cmn32480> I'm on a cn call w/ that customer.
[18:46:10] <cmn32480> they are replacing their wirless in <30days
[18:46:28] <cmn32480> and they want me to get there RIGHT F**KING NOW to fix the existing problems
[18:46:33] <cmn32480> hilarious
[18:47:30] <janrinok> they must have money to burn
[18:47:48] <janrinok> or they like you one hell of a lot
[18:48:58] <cmn32480> yes on both counts
[18:49:12] <cmn32480> but my passport is in the hands of the state department
[18:49:18] <cmn32480> it hasn't been issued yet
[18:49:30] <janrinok> lucky you - they'll have to wait
[18:49:38] <cmn32480> correct!
[18:49:46] <cmn32480> your a fart meller!
[18:50:03] <cmn32480> s/m/sm/
[18:50:03] <sedctl> <cmn32480> your a fart smeller!
[18:50:05] <exec> <cmn32480> your a fart smeller!
[18:50:07] <janrinok> that doesn't sound good, whatever it means
[18:50:11] <janrinok> ah, got it
[18:50:33] <cmn32480> adn if my brand travels that far, I'm impressed
[18:50:40] <janrinok> malaproprisms
[18:57:58] <janrinok> time for me to go. It's French National Day today - formerly Bastille Day - and we can usually see the fireworks from one of our windows.
[18:58:20] <cmn32480> swell!
[18:58:27] <cmn32480> be safe and give S my best
