Vacation Started

December 21

Finally on vacation.  Not too busy at work.  After the Christmas luncheon, no one really works all that much.  The food was a bit disappointing.  Last year a local restaurant catered the food, which was much better.  This year was pretty common catering fare.  Fried chicken that was about 2 days old by the taste of it and really fatty Italian beef.  We did interview a person after lunch to wire up a crapload of new testers I designed for work.  Nothing too difficult, just something like 1,500 solder joints to solder before they are all done.  Poor bastard.

I had been using SeaMonkey for my internet needs, but I really miss some of the features in Firefox.  My favorite is ScribeFire, which allows easy blogging.  So, I am back to Firefox/Thunderbird.   The latest versions seem to be less memory leaky. 

Tomorrow, we are heading off to the mother in law’s place for a few hours and early x-mas gifts.  I am looking forward to my new watch, a Seiko diver’s watch.  It will be my first real diver’s watch.  Seiko has been making diver’s watches for over 40 years now.  It will have a bright orange face and solid stainless steel bracelet.  I picked it out, she paid for it. 

Glenn has been ok.  He is really trying to find Mommy’s limits.  He does throw some temper tantrums and he really is developing a personality.  I wonder how he will turn out?  Though, I find that I miss Tiff and Glenn more during the day than I used to.  I am glad I am taking a vacation to be with my family a little more.

    I’m interested to see some of your watches. I love watches, but my wrists are small, so most of them look pretty stupid on me.

    I have been really getting into watches. I too, have small wrists. My newest and largest watch is the Seiko Diver. It is 42mm across. What I like about Seiko divers, compared to other larger watches is the distance ‘lug to lug’ (where the band attaches) is only slightly longer than the case is wide. It keeps the watch from overhanging your arm. I have a 35, 36, 37, and 42 watch. My 35mm military watch is the most comfortable to wear. The 42mm diver is the most impressive. It makes most watches look like cheap toys.
