Than working on broken systems that someone else broke and ran away from...

I would much rather be on my deck, with a cup of coffee and a nice quiet mash.

What are you up to?

Sticking needles in pregnant womens backs and not getting paid for it. Ah the life of a student nurse anesthetist.

Surfing at work, between filling in for the molding supervisor out back. Waiting to hear if I need to start up the press to finish a prototype run. Also chatting up some guys about welding a Stainless Shelf for my kegerator, and about smoking meat this weekend. Thinking about the next step in completing my second grain crusher. And, of course, the usual guy thoughts.

Also, should I bottle some of my Centennial Blonde and put it out in the Coke machine in the garage? And, when can I brew another batch of beer??

Currently, I'm trying to distract myself from the jackarse who refuses to use a phone handset than his speakerphone. Also trying to juggle working on these technical documents and reading these forums. Can you guess which activity is winning? I swear I'm going to throw something at this guy.

YOU'RE NOT THAT IMPORTANT!!!

/Ok, I'm ready to get home and bottle my beer

Reading the forum and eating a late breakfast (late of me at least). Dog walk up next.

Do not miss fixing systems or speaker phones.

I see that I am not alone...

I have a carboy of english strong sitting on my table waiting to be racked to keg, and a 3 gal of cider that I need to rack as well.

How long should cider sit in primary?

Send out an email to him about office etiquette but put in the subject "To all Employees". Make sure the email mentions using a headset because there are other people in the office. but ONLY send it to him, then send another one to just him 5 minutes later saying, "Whoops, it looks like you're the only one that received that company wide email, the Email server must have a filter on it to determine who actually needs each company wide sent email. weird...


I personally am surfing HBT waiting for the next Emergency "My Line is Down and it's costing us $1M an hour but we didn't want to spend 12G on a spare system just in case" call to come in. And kicking my self for forgetting the Rice hulls on 9#Flaked Wheat/2#White Wheat grain bill order for this weekend.

Should be sending/typing one of the 12 proposals due by the end of the week but I'm really thinking about how much extra scrubbing my stuff is going to need because I was too lazy to clean it immediately after my last brew session two weeks ago...
Also fine tuning a recipe for an Oaked English IPA... I need to get some fuggles...

God, I wish it were that easy. Unfortunately I work for a very large aerospace company and this guy is about 4 pay grades above me. I asked my lead to send an office etiquette email out to everyone in our bay, but he doesn't give a crap since he's isolated in a nice comfy hard wall office. It's very difficult to get anything done when you're listening to the woes of a subcontractor's hardware delivery issues to a deployed unit.

I think I'm just going to throw a headset over the wall at him. Maybe he'll get the hint. Or maybe he'll beat the hell out of me. I'll let you know what happens next.
