The Weekly Tendown July 1-7 2012

Sunday, July 8, 2012

Dear Internet:

Once again, I'm not here.  I'm in Salt Lake City.

Once again, I am here, but by the time you read this, I'll be in Salt Lake City. This is the last of the work related trips for the rest of the year (I'm again gone a week, I'll write Tendown 136 from a hotel room); even given how little I like to travel, it seems (although not all precincts have been counted) that I came out way far ahead with the job switch.  I need a new office chair (it's one thing to sit for a few hours a day; it's another to sit for 10 hours a day - I need a real chair) and eventually, after a move, a larger desk will be on my list (I've got two 20+ inch monitors, a laptop, and a CPU tower sitting on a desk).

But for now, things are good.  Health insurance.  Credit cards getting paid down.  The turn appears to be the correct one.

And I'm in Utah with Karl Malone.  So there's that.

134 is here. This is Tendown 135.

10. The Worst Meal I've Had in My Life
Was yesterday - at La Fogata in Wellington, Florida.  Undercooked hunks of flavorless pork in a burrito.  Just awful.

That's all for this time.  I'll be back next time...if there is a next time...

Your pal,

Does the Tendown have any plans to do a "Best Survivor Players of All-Time" list?

Jim said...

Yes. I have one - or did; the same website that did the BB poll did a Survivor poll, let's say a year ago, and at that time I did my list, but it slipped away somehow.
