We went to Decatur for Terrific Thursday. Santa was there. It was Terrific!
We had been planning to go all month, but one week I was sick and last week she was sick. So this was the only night we could go enjoy.
We had dinner at Sage. The food was wonderful. I had the Terrific Thursday special. A Flank Steak. It was great. They had a 9oz martini for $6 and I tried the Cosmo which didn't have very much alcohol in it at all. For a 9oz Martini, you would think it would be enough, it was so crappy I didn't even order another one. That says a lot. Amy had compassion on their service because we ended up getting the bar tender waiting on us, I think we saw her three times total. In my opinion, it was so bad that the little host was trying to help her out by waiting on us. When I go to a restaurant like that, I expect good service and I didn't get it, so I was disappointed. But the food was good. But for me to want to go back, I need the combo, good food, good service. But that's me. I must say though, I'm not a cheap hoochie, so the Bar Tender still got a good tip. But whatever, good thing my Love is so compassionate, that's all I'm sayin. - Overall - it was OK.
We proceeded through the square where we received free marshmallows to roast over a HUGE fire. My guess is that there were approximately 50 people there crowded around a massive fire. It was nice.
We then went to MoJo's Pizza and Pub. Where we go once every month or so. I would say it's one of my top 5 favorite pizza places in the ATL. They had a special, if you buy a $10 gift card, they give $5 on top. So we bought two, for ourselves. We'll spend that quickly I am sure. If you ever go, my suggestion is the White Pizza with Pepperoni. It's Fabu!
Overall, I had a wonderful date with my Lovely Wife.

They're great. Last year Love and I watched all the same movies as Scrappy described so we decided to not watch any movies we had already seen. With the exception of Miracle on 34th Street and possibly the Polar Express. Anyway..
Thus far this year I have seen...
Single Santa meets Mrs. Claus
Meet the Santa's
Holidays in Handcuffs
All I Want for Christmas.
Christmas in Boston
I liked the movies so much that I wanted part two for all of them.
Single Santa and Meet the Santa's are sequels and you have to watch them in that order.
I do believe they're all Romance, Drama, Comedy. But they were fabulous.

2. They have great taste. - First I received a penguin PEZ dispenser, and it's so cute!
3. They know me well enough to get me two of something significant. The work Christmas party is coming up and we're going to Dave and Busters, and my Secret Santa got me two D&B Power Cards. The fact that Santa got me two means a lot, which means they know Amy, or know about Amy. They took the time to travel to D&B to get it. It was a well thought out and time invested gift. That's awesome!
YAY! Kudos to my Secret Santa!

I must say, the Wii is pretty cool. Thus far we have purchased several games but have found ourselves going back to the Hot Wheels game. It rocks! We are now on the Hot Shot level and are still working hard at it.
Wii rocks. It's the way to go.

"What to do when the rain won’t come? If you’re Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, you pray."
I am grateful that my Govenor knows the source of Rain and how to get it.
Today I will be praying at 11:45 here at the office since I cannot be amongst my fellow Georgians praying for rain at the Capitol.
If anyone wants to meet up with me, come to my desk at 11:45Am and we can pray together (maybe in the foos room or somewhere).

1. Wash it
2. Wrap it
3. Cook it in the microwave for 3 minutes
4. Let it cool for 2-3 minutes
They're Great! Thanks GrantBob!

Ok ok, I was wrong in my last posting. I would totally choose to get an iPhone if I were to be given an iPhone. So yes, I am willing to convert to Apple products.
Thanks Sky, you're the bomb!

This means that all test cases must be rewritten, formatted differently, and more exhaustive. It's quite exciting. I can confidently say that this process will truly enable us to test more in depth than ever in the history of this company.
As I create test cases, I am part of being instrumental in creating a better software product. Every little step in a job, even if it goes unrecognized, it truly makes an impact on my product and thus.... The World.
Here at work, making test cases makes a better, safer product, and this being a security product, thus making a safer world.
Yay Test case Creation!

I asked God to take away my habit.
God said, No. It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole.
God said, No. His spirit is whole, his body is only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience.
God said, No. Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is learned.
I asked God to give me happiness.
God said, No. I give you blessings; Happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain.
God said, No. Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow.
God said, No. You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked God for all things that I might enjoy life.
God said, No. I will give you life, so that you may enjoy all things.
I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as He loves me.
God said...Ahhhh, finally you have the idea.

I am reading the Safety and Security portion and I came across something that should not have to be in the instructions.
"No guns, knives, lighters, matches, chewing gum or fishing poles are permitted inside Georgia Aquarium."
I can understand telling people not to bring the guns and such, but Fishing Poles? My question would be, who in their right mind would bring a fishing pole to an aquarium. But, then again, people go to these things who are not in their right mind.
It just took me by surprise.
#2 - Not much later while speaking with Spice, we were discussing her recent fame on TV. I mentioned how I was star struck and how I was going to bat my eyebrows at her because she is now a Big TV Star.
Now that you have a little more context to the stories, I will explain what I meant to say.
#1 - DrezBob was being noisy
#2 - Bat my eyelashes
Slight changes in the words, but overall, it was big differences.
Anywho, that's pretty typical of Squeaky. Yay me!

I think my beautiful wife is taking me there for my birthday. The plan is to go grab sushi to go and take my favorite drink, Vanilla Vodka and ginger, and go make some glass art. I've done the pottery thing before. I've also made stained glass before, but now I get to go and make some different kind of glass. I'm excited. YAY!

They had been going at it for days, and frankly God was tired of hearing all the bickering.
Finally fed up, God said, "THAT'S IT! I have had enough. I am going to set up a test that will run for two hours, and from those results, I will judge who does the better job."
So Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away.
They e-mailed with attachments.
They did spreadsheets!
They wrote reports.
They created labels and cards.
They created charts and graphs.
They did some genealogy reports
They did every job known to man.
Jesus worked with heavenly efficiency and Satan was faster than hell.
Then, ten minutes before their time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, rain poured, and, of course, the power went off.
Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed every curse word known in the underworld.
Jesus just sighed.
Finally the electricity came back on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically, screaming: "It's gone! It's all GONE! "I lost everything when the power went out!"
Meanwhile, Jesus quietly started printing out all of his files from the past two hours of work.
Satan observed this and became irate. "Wait!" he screamed. "That's not fair! He cheated! How come he has all his work and I don't have any?"
God just shrugged and said, JESUS SAVES

1. Patience is a must
2. Things do not always work out the way we think they should.
3. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
4. Understand that when someone starts a project they have never done before, it will always seem hard and it will take a little time to get it going. But once you get the hang of it, you will get faster and better at the task at hand.
Now that the ground rules are out of the way, we can move forward with
How to Remove Wallpaper
1. Get the right Supplies
a. Utility knives can be used to score wallpaper, but use great care to avoid damaging the surface of the wall underneath
b. Scrapers are available in a variety of shapes and types and include broad knives, wallboard knives and paper scrapers
c. Chemicals may be safe to work with, but it’s always a good idea to wear gloves and goggles to protect your hands and eyes
2. What to do
a. If you are going to score the wallpaper, do that 1st
b. Next, follow the directions for DIF
c. Start at the top of the wall and work your way down when applying chemicals
d. Use the scrapper for scrapping off the wall paper
e. Repeat as necessary

I am so blessed that I did not get stung. Not one jacket came at me, I think they were more confused than anything. Also, this nest is less than 10' away from the front door of my house. We have had guests over and they have walked through our yard. My pups have run around the yard. Thus far no one has been stung and all have been protected. Today I am counting my blessings. :-)
