Since we’re all sitting here despamming our blogs, let us once again appreciate how much more awesome Regina’s spam is than my spam: [19:41] starflier06: But, like, ok.

Soundgarden for the win. So, Saturday, here. Spent Friday mostly freaking right the hell out about school, URI starting the 20th of this month, etc, calmed slightly by a few kind souls. So Saturday I’m settling down for some serious Getting Shit Ready To Go work, when Dad comes in with the mail. “You might want to check this,” he says, handing me an SCSU envelope.

Somebody should name a band that. I dunno why. But yeah. One of the things I love about my job is when I start talking about our quality control and our reject rate. Used to be, and Dad could barely believe himself when I said this, that we’d rebuild probably 2 doors in every 50 or so, which works out to something around 4-5%. Today, by contrast, we built between 110-120 doors, and rebuilt around 20. Which is more like 15-20%. You can only laugh, really.
