About Me

20 years ago I... (1985)
1. had finished my enlisted military service and was in college.
2. was on an extended visit to my home town where I would bicycle tour round the lakes and over the hills during summer or drink 2 for one well drinks, eat 10¢ buffalo wings, and listen to the 10,00 Manics play in The Rusty Nail during winter.
3. was happy.

10 years ago I... (1995)
1. had finished my officer military service and had made the move into IT as a professional.
2. was the only sysadmin for a 24 hour coffee shop/bookstore/Internet café. The worst pay/best job I ever had.
3. was happy.

5 years ago I... (2000)
1. had finished the Y2K workstation roll out as a contractor then I had been absorbed by the company as a permanent system engineer.
2. was living in Belltown, had begun golfing again, and getting comfortable.
3. was happy.

3 years ago I... (2002)
1. had just met the woman who would become my wife.
2. and the Passat were in an accident with a white box truck and a wall.
3. was happy.

1 year ago I... (2004)
1. was living in the ex-urbs.
2. and my good friend deanchaseis were golfing often as founding members of the C&RBGC
3. wasn't very happy.

So far this year I... (2005)
1. am living on Queen Anne hill.
2. am minutes away from being divorced after more than six months legally separated.
3. am happy.

Yesterday I...
1. woke up and went for a run.
2. did some planning for a major system upgrade.
3. wrote and distributed a flier for the club championship.

Today I...
1. woke late, dragged myself out of bed and wandered into work without any of my cherished mourning routine.
2. had a good planning, strategy meeting with a consultant at Starbucks.
3. enjoyed a walk along the waterfront at lunch with a friend.

Tomorrow I will...
1. wake up and go for a run.
2. deploy components in support of a new portal under development offshore.
3. present and set the board for a working group meeting.

In the next year I will...
1. get down to 180 lbs or 16% body fat.
2. have a plan for a 2007 golf trip with as many of the guys as I can gather at some deserving golf resort.
3. be happy.

Rusty Nail
Where are you from? There used to be a Rusty Nail in the town in Jersey where I grew up. LH

Living on Queen Anne Hill would make me happy, too. :-)

Regarding work, did you mean to write "morning routine" in lieu of "mourning routine?" Morning runs are nice this time of year.
