  • 11:09 It's always weird coming to the end. We're about to drive the last pile of the job. Lofting right now. #
  • 11:11 To the wonderful hammer-please please PLEASE don't break again. We're almost done. #
  • 11:13 DAMMIT. should have sent that last message to the hoist. Pile stuck 50ft up, can't raise any higher. Figures. #
  • 11:22 Anyways. Today we had 3 piles run 42-46ft. That means one tap and LOOK AT IT GO RUN RUN MOVE DAMMIT AAAAHHH #
  • 12:05 Well, got it up... just in time for lunch. C'est la vie. #
  • 12:30 Crane moving into position... setting pile down riiight... now. #
  • 12:36 First blow (for posterity ^_^) #
  • 12:45 This one ran 43 ft. Yikes. #
  • 12:56 Last blow... wow. that's it. Finished. What a ride. 338 piles since Oct 14. #
  • 14:38 'You guys did good, no incidents or injuries, take the rest of the day off and have a good weekend.' ...I love this job. #

  • 12:18 In a situation like this-with the rain coming in sideways-all I can do is yell @ my phone: Yes, I know you're ringing!! #
  • 12:20 Protip 2: cranes also hate lightning. liek WHOA!!11ELEVEN! #
  • 12:22 Also, yesterday? On the freeway? 100ft visibility means it's a BAD idea to do 75. Just saying. #
  • 12:24 Also also. my feet are wet. Waterproofing leather doesn't do shit to keep water out of the laces. For future reference. #

  • 15:42 Dragons > wolves. Hell, wolves didn't even get a Chinese year! DRAGONS R TEH BOMB. #
  • 15:46 Really starting to hate the port ppl. Doing this paperwork the same way for 3 mos, now suddenly it's not good enough?? #
  • 15:48 I totally think the ppl who aren't happy unless they have a reason to complain outnumber the rest of us normals... #
  • 15:56 @MistressPrime - Kind of like 1950 then? XD #
  • 16:06 @MistressPrime - Yup totally teasing - except 1950 was also a Tiger year. My dad was born that year. I'm a Dragon. #
  • 16:15 @MistressPrime - Actually, I thought they were incompatible. We're a textbook example. Whee textbook yey! #
  • 16:25 @MistressPrime - Ah. I remember now. Tigers like Dragons ok, but the feeling is far from mutual. L.O.L. #

  • 14:35 A recent Jersey expat took a trip to Catalina on a glass bottom boat. He'd never seen anything like it before. #
  • 14:35 I mean, really, can you imagine? Why anyone would want to take a glass-bottom cruise in Jersey? #
  • 14:36 I can see it now. "'Ey, Tony, look it's Louie! 'E's already turnin' blue!" #

Whoa, two days in a row?

God speaks.
Some people would consider that insufficient... of course, they post hourly at minimum. Do they really have anything that important to say? Really?

I think I'd like to save up. XDDD

Well. I wish I could find some way to dump the pics off my phone, because I have a lot of cool shots of work.

Oh, and I found that video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AZaJGqKXMmU I didn't take this one, because I needed to be close enough to see the water line. The one I took is much closer, and you can see the guys diving out of the way. It was awesome. I hope Jeff posts it soon. XDDD The interesting part starts right around the 7:00 mark. You can see the way the pile moves, then the way it MOVES. O_o YEOW. 40 feet from start to stop. Not even kidding. So glad I'm on top of the bank. So very, very glad.

That rather piercing whine in the background is the jet pump that sends like 700 gallons per minute through that giant hose, up to the top of the pile and all the way to the bottom. It's pretty cool, actually. Just NOISY AS FUCK. This is my day, every day, all day. Yay. KACHUNK KACHUNK KACHUNK KACHUNK Hearing protection FTW, srsly.

Anyways, got a pinewood derby this weekend, so now that I have internet I CAN'T USE IT NOES ~SOB~ because I have a car to build. I really wish I'd known it was coming so soon... turns out I had like 4 emails about it... but didn't get a call until yesterday. Tuesday. Four days notice. Damn. Good thing the scout shop was open late on Tuesdays. Sheesh.

Bitch bitch bitch, whine whine whine. Suck it up, I know. SUCKING IT, SHUT UP.

wait that sounded so wrong. so very, very wrong.

  • 07:08 Y'know, for the amount of talking & texting I do, I'll end up spending $60/month on my own cell plan. Must ponder this. #

~deep breath~

I'm ok, I'm ok. Really. I have to be, cuz it's pretty late (for me, shut up Yvonne XP~) and I really need to not be staying up as late as I have been BECAUSE MY INTERNET FINALLY WORKS AND I DON'T HAVE TO MESS WITH IT ANYMORE HOLY SHIT HOLY SHIT YAAAAYYYYY!!!!

  • 19:40 So my foreman says he posted videos I took over the weekend. Search youtube for Manson construction piledriving #
  • 19:40 I think he said his id is mrjeff&tam but I may have misunderstood. #
  • 19:41 And it would be really nice to know when my phone is going to be shut off - some advance warning would be nice. #

  • 07:28 So. That crappy unsecured connection that I can't seem to access belongs to my landlord. She said I could use it instead #
  • 07:30 ...instead of paying for my own. Not going to work, obviously. Then she offered to find out how much it would cost me... #
  • 07:31 ...to have the phone company install a new phone line. Exqueeze me? Baking powder? #
  • 07:33 Of course, if I had a landline when I moved in, this would have been catastrophic. Now it's just obnoxious. #

  • 12:31 Ah, Fry's. The bane of my existence. #
  • 12:46 Was waylaid on the way to Joann's - the OTHER bane of my existence - and am now on the way to meet with @MistressPrime . #
  • 17:47 There is no way I'm getting this done myself. The phone jack is full of paint. PAINT. I ASK YOU. WHAT. #

  • 22:29 I had a really good time today. Got lots of affirmation - there is still plenty of family that wants me around. #
  • 22:31 Ah, a funny - my parents have been officially uninvited from thanksgiving dinner next year. By grandma & aunt. Whoa. 0.0 #
  • 22:32 Now if only I could figure out what I ate that hates me so very much. -_- #
