Hello World! [Sep. 11th, 2009|11:58 am]
Tavi
I've been a bad monkey and not posted anything in many moons.

Back from Burning Man...all went well.
Things are going well in general...just busy these days so I gotta go...

Got a BIG (over 1/3") splinter under the nail of my right ndex finger this afternoon at about 5 pm.
Just got it out now.
Scotch and my dremel tool are my friends.
BUt not like you...you all are much better than that...well, maybe not the scotch, but I digress!

Sooninsh I'l post a real update with what's going on n my life, but not quite yet.
Things are good...and looking even better!

Here, an ACTION MEME, stolen from funranium

The first seven (7) people to respond to this post will get something made by me.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year (2009).
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix CD. It may be a cat fur scarf. I may draw or paint something, but I doubt it. I might bake you something and mail it to you. It could be a hunk of melted wax shaped like a sad mishapen monkey..  Who knows? Not you, that's for sure! [not me either]
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you.

Do you dare be tempted?  I will state right now that I lack any sort of craftsmanship skills.

Been a while...nothing new here.
Still unemployed, but picking up work from the company that let me go (at a nice rate no less).

We are however, going shooting at A PLace to Shoot with a few people on Sunday the 28th if anyone wants to coma along.

OK, off to Disneland now.

State of the Update [Jul. 23rd, 2008|08:32 pm]

So...it's been a while!
Project status...
No real major work on the Batmobile lately...put on roof and windshield...did some wiring...bought supplies for front end and fins, but haven't been able to work on it for a few weeks now.
I finally managed to get the Fire Sword done though...it rocks! Took a cheapo sword and drilled/cut out parts of the blade and attached some about 2' of triple layered 3" kevlar wick to the back of the blade.
BIG FIRE!!!  Good FOOMP!  I'm quite happy with it...good thing since I wore through about 8-10 dremel bits and 3 drill bits to get it done...aparently the steel wasn't as cheap as I paid for!
Work is, well, work...nothing to exciting there, occasionally a pain in th eass, but to be expected.
Everything else is swimming along.
Had a great time in Vegas for a wedding 2 weeks ago and spent some time at the Ranger training with good people last weekend...apparently I'm working this weekend, so no big fun for me...oh well.
I have to finish off the batmobile very soon so I can pack up the trailer and start Burning man Prep, since we leave in less than a month, and we'll be out there for at least 12 days.
That's all I have for now...maybe I'll try doing this more often!

Double amputee is cleared to qualify for Olympics if he can!
And from the looks of his times, he's close enough to pull it off if he trains hard.

As forme, since I'm actually updating, things are pretty damn good.
The job deosn't suck so much since they've given a fat raise and full control over my department...it still does occasionally, but hey, it's a job!
Been busy with that and actually socializing and prepping for more events and social activities!

Working on a few projects...the Barmobile will soon take prority there.
I'm totally making a Batmobile for Burning MAn tihs year. I put a deposit on a GoKart/UTV last week and I go down next week to pick it up, since I didn't have my trailer last week.
I'm basing it on this vehicle in Black and adding the fins in the back, about 5 feet of front end, EL wire outlines of the frame...and of course a flamethrower.

I think I confused the sales guy when I told him I was going to strip it down, do some additions to the frame and put a flamethrower on it...

Question time [Mar. 19th, 2008|03:09 pm]
Tavi
1. if you could do anything you wanted, and make a living doing it.....what, exactly, would you be doing?? (feel free to make up something that doesnt exist, as long as its what you would want to do *nods*)
Really, I'd like to be independantly wealthy so I don't have to "do" anything.  I could pursue building things and learning metalwork for myo wn projects as well as travel and go places.  I'd like to be able to leave at the drop of a hat to go rebulid a comminity after a flood/fire/earthquake/tornado and not worry that my obligations won't be met.
I enjoy being useful...I suppose I'd like to make a living doing that, but on my own terms, not someone else's.

2. garden gnomes...harbingers of evil??? if not, on what do you base your (obviously flawed) opinion?
ooohhh...tough question...
See, there are differnt kinds of gnomes...the garden gnome variety are mostly benign (I hope, since I'm currenly gnome sitting quite a few of them!)
I suspect the one that's smoking a toad in my bathroom is up to no good , but I don't really think he's a harbinger of evil.
Feisty and tricksy yes, Harbinger of Evil, no.
Harbingers of Evil is a title I usually reserve for arachnids and politicians.
