bamboo wednesday! part 2!

i suppose it shows how busy i've been when i notice that the last post i put up here was bamboo wendesday and so is this one?

i've noticed that it has grown when i compare the two pictures side-by-side. looks like about a centimeter of growth. hopefully i can keep this one from joining the ranks of the withered, yellowed bamboo skeletons that are popping up around corporate canada.

great news is that i've finally gotten a new dryer. the down side is that it's slightly smaller than the old one so i have to be careful aboot how much laundry i stuff into the machine. also, the lint trap is in a really stupid place - right above the door where you'd take your clean, dry laundry out of it so you either get lint on your clean clothes, or back inside the dryer. great.

work at both jobs has been insanely busy lately. at job one we've undertaken the massive task of translating our entire application (the bread and butter for my company) from english to other languages. doesn't sound like that big a deal until you realize that there are 350+ report files with thousands of labels that need to be updated - not to mention hundreds of other web pages that need to be modified. at job number two we've taken on a new massive client and are seemingly perpetually short staffed. you know it's not good when you walk in and people are saying "oh man, it's insane tonight - i'm so glad you're here. these three people didn't show up..."

but at least i can wear clean clothes to work.

    My house is insulated with lint. Save it for me.

    Bamboo seems to be coming along nicely. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

    i can tell you why they do die... they don't like fluoride. you have to feed them unfluoridated water. i have no idea if i'm spelling that right.. but i just looked it up. you inspired me to get my own bamboo, which i found out isn't even bamboo!! it's a member of the lily family. bastardos. i feel so robbed.

    flouride... that could be a good reason why i've had decent first-week growth. I didn't really notice until now that the water i've been giving it is from the big spring water jug.
