So, alas - here it is!!!!

Argh!

I must be on the very end of the string here. I didn't see AndyCap's post and subsequent ones before I left at ~10:30.



(I'm going mildly bonkers here. I go away for a long weekend and come back to find The Egg back in New England, in a bunch of places I already know, places that I can get to without a major expedition, put there by people I know, and when I finally get the chance to snag it, I get bruced! Oh, well, at least it's not as "expensive" a brucing as it could have been!)

And, oh yeah, congratulations from me too, AndyCap.

Thanks for the cheers, but I think our little friend had a few cheers too many. A quick update on our visit, and then he goes to work with me. It appears he has a thing for technology

+++++

So as you all know, we got hammered with a pretty heavy rain storm last night. Our little friend was cold, wet, and wrung out. So I made up some hot cocoa, and showed him some pictures from our vacation to Disney World.



The hot cocoa warmed us up a tad, but he was still shivering from the cold November rain. I had just the thing to cut right through that chill.



I no sooner finished the pour, he was toasting and slammed down his glass. I guess he was thirsty.


So, I offered a second, and he graciously accepted as he said, "It would be rude to turn down such a generous offer."

The second went down a bit slower. After 2, I bowed out, showed him where he would be sleeping, set him up with a towel, showed him around a bit, and gave him the run of the place - I was tired an needed sleep. He was very understanding.



None of you warned me to lock my liquor cabinet! I woke up late this morning to find him passed out on the floor with a good number of empty bottles littered around him.





Fortunately my wife is out of town, she would have had something to say. I just hope he isn't too sick.




Well, off to work I go, with the lush in hand.

Yeah, well. Sometimes you're the brucer. Sometimes you're the brucee.

C'est la vie.

On a completely unrelated but related topic: If somewhere along the way we lose the Egg (or he disintegrates under the Nth Dremel attack), I can volunteer this guy to be the next mascot:



(I mean, really, what else can one do with that? )
