bit out of sorts. But working my way through it.
SU and I had a very nice date last night. Something about that girl just makes me feel better. Got home too late to watch a movie though. Oh well, there’s plenty of time for movies.
Work was okay, nothing special happening. Pretty slow right now on the revenue side, have to make sure that labor and expenditures remain at a minimum. The home office wants to adjust labor rates to make us more “cost effective”. They just don’t get it and I don’t feel like forcing it on them. Cost accountants have ruined more companies than any other internal position. They can’t see the forest for the trees. And they count trees that don’t exist. Why they can’t see that our margins are at historical highs with lower selling prices is way beyond me.
SU is out tonight at the annual church women’s retreat. So I headed out to Anderson Fair to catch whomever was playing. Guy named Steve James, billed as a guitar player in the old style. He was a lot of fun and can really play the old style. Lots of quick slides, you couldn’t really see him put the slide on the fretboard he was so quick. I snuck the little Olympus DS-30 in and recorded the show. Half of the fun was watching his body language and listening to his stories. Good show.

Update: I managed to get something out of a picture file. That place is so dark and flash usage would spoil the atmosphere. The little Lumix tried but I really could have used the Sony A100.
