The first post says it all Shalom, This is the home of the Pittsfield Jew. Sure its neat to read about Jews in Brooklyn who are very observant but how about a not so observant Jew who lives in the Mid West?

Bike ride

Today Jonny went for a bike ride - alone. His new friends at ABL wouldn't go with him. He'll probably go tomorrow again or take a nap. Olegar is on vacation. Sylvestor tried to apologize for being mean yesterday but Jonny just blew him off. Earlier today Jonny made sandwhiches for both Olegar and Harvey. They loved their sandwhiches and then went into Olegar's office and closed the door. So Jonny was on the ready mode from 2-5 today, by his choice and on 1:30 on Friday. He needs to call his AS2 customer Friday. He has an EDI customer that doesn't seem to care if the case gets closed or not. They have all heard these horror stories of cases that have been held open for years. An odd thing happened this morning Olegar asked Jonny for Laurence's resume. Angelina was just asking about this story. Of course she said "it would be a nice thing to do to warn Laurence about what went on today at ABL" Ok well that was a close quote to what she said, it was the gist of what she said clearly. Of course Jonny argued with her. Why is that? Hashem only knows.

Fussy? Opinionated? Impossible to please? Perfect.

The spies

Earlier tonight Jonny was reading about the spies in the book TC. Here comes Angelina. Jonny is working on applying for jobs her. He wrote a couple of thank you letters. He had a web developer phone interview in the rain today. They want him to come back for a two hour test. He will do that after work on Monday. Thank Hashem this is the first job interview where he can freely admit he has a job already. So that is why he is meeting to take the test after work. They agreed he is highly paid. Angelina is done with the dishwasher and went back upstairs. She is complaining about anything and everything. Her mouth is going on and on. Hopefully tomorrow Jonny can bicycle again and send his dad an email. Jonny's suit for the Bat Mitzvah is ready. Still no wedding ring. Oh well he can't have everything. He kinda got in a fight with Sylvestor over a case today. This job can get stressful. Bottom line if you're on the phones help the customer. This seems contrary to what the Indian girls: Juli and Brandi told him to do. Jonny's Indian friend from this other company Wendy is getting her green card soon. One of her coworkers John is getting his second adopted baby. Both are Chinese, he is white and the kids are brothers.

Hot Monday

Today is hot in Ann Arbor with Jonny. His family had an open house on Sunday. Jesse and Lorraine, the two dogs Lucy and Dexter and Jonny the driver went to the park by the river. It was Log Cabin Day. They were late for their curfew by the exact amount of time they spent exploring the exhibits. They had Jonny cakes, saw a log cabin that is always there, made corn husk dolls. Jonny had an interview today. It was hot. Angelina picked him up in their Blue minivan. She got lost and Jonny walked a ways before he caught up with her. The person who Jonny was supposed to interview with was sick. But three other programmers were able to find the time to interview him. Today one of the positions was filled. Olegar liked his sandwhich and Angelina is going to buy some more kosher deli. It looks like Angelina needs some more attention. She isn't happy unless she is watching tv and everyone else is running up and down the stairs serving her. She bought Jonny some Faroma salad from Hiller's for dinner. It was filling. Tomorrow Jonny is going bycle riding by himself. He is up to page 461 of TC. They were discussing the occurence of a one line poem in the middle of the bible.

Friday night at work he stayed really late and met Angelina at a graduation party at Burn's Park. Jonny got there around 8:30 or 9:00.

No luck. On the way to the game he gave the homeless man a candy bar.

Parent's weekend

The teacher graded alot of homework. Over the weekend Kristina and Wendell were in Ann Arbor. They left Jonny's house early Sunday afternoon to catch the last throes of the Ann Arbor tastefest. Jonny was glad Jesse didn't go. Will this typing wake up Angelina. It might. Jonny is up to page 429 of TC and 334 of SWS. Angelina's mother-in-law got her husband a book called Presidential Courage by Bechloss. When Jonny got to work he sent out an IM about brownies. Overnight his parents left him a VM. Today he closed a case. He read upto page 131 of XML by example. He forgot to bring apples to work. Tomorrow Angelina wants stamps and a package mailed. But the post office at ABL won't take credit cards. Will Angelina trust him with that much money? Alberta hurt her hip. Jonny spoke to both Kristina and Wendell tonight. Angelina called Jonny at work and told him Aetna's insurance is a pain among other things she spoke of. Jonny is out of breakfast food at work but Angelina got him a bagel. Jonny's son Jesse and his dogs Lucy and Dexter were needed out of the house for an open house. They went to the dinosaur museum with Kristina and Wendell in the rain.
