It All Comes Down To This - Employment Edition

It's on.

Not the basement remodel, which has bogged down some, not in minutiae but in slow finishing work. Tile today.

No, paleo has had a large power maintenance / equipment end-of-life replacement and upgrade project on his plate for several months, with planning starting in March, but things seriously ramping up about a month ago, and Saturday night is the show. I work in an industry where 24/7/365 power uptime is the standard, and how we are judged and sold, and getting the permissions and paperwork to do a 12 hour shutdown, although it is completely necessary, justified, and planned, is like pulling teeth. Saturday night is that visit to the dentist. Once I start work, in about an hour and a half, it will be asses and elbows until sometime Sunday afternoon...

Biggest project I've ever run, and although it is not an audition, per se, success tomorrow, and in its 3 encores over the next 18 months, will go a long way towards the goal of buffing a seat with my but, while I'm still ambulatory.

Antacid, anyone?

  2. ZRM - I'm gonna miss Sunday.

    I'll keep track, on teh phone, but yeah, of course, I don't know if there is an actual broadcast available here in the land of amateur football, damnable Vikings don't play so one would hope...
