So I'm making a trip up to Bemidji on Aug 6th weekend. Leaving Saturday morning, staying overnight, coming back Sunday.

I could use some company.

I'm planning on staying in a hotel with a hot tub.

There will be some packing and unpacking of the trailer with Barb's stuff, most of which is in plastic bins.

Anybody feel like a jaunt?

Tried sleeping without the decongestant last night. Gave up after an hour. Today, I got some sugar-free cough syrup (Waltussin DM, same as Robitussin DM), and while it helps with the cough, it makes me sssllleeeeeepppyyy...

Unless it's melatonin that I took last night not kicking in until now.

(EDIT: nope, definitely the cough syrup. Wheee!)

Tonight might be a good night to curl up and read some more Harry Potter. I'm about halfway through, I think, right at the part where Ron and Hermione are fighting off the evil mountain goat things. I'll find out more by the time I get home, I think. Most likely I'll just hit the bed and zonk.

It's blasted humid out there, like walking into a big steam closet. I'm pretty sure that working outside would be a bad thing, or at least uncomfortable as hell. Pity, as I was kind of planning on finishing up the assembly of the cement mixer in case I wanted to, oh I don't know, mix cement?

Scotty est mort. Vive le Scotty.

Feeling pretty useless today at work. I can't concentrate worth a cup of burned coffee.

Hot tub. It calls my name, it does. You can hear it in the burbles. My name is Bloop.

Massage would be nice, too. And then sleep for a couple of days.

Thinking of future hot tub placement. While I'm doing the front porch, I could theoretically put in a side door that could lead to a gazebo that held a hot tub, but that would bot the gazebo in the front side yard of the house. It's space that's not very well utilized now, but it is close to the neighbor's house and it would feel less private.
The backyard would be better, but there's not a whole lot of room.

Up on top of a deck would be way cool, but I don't know how hard it would be to engineer the supports for that much water. That's a whole lot of weight to suspend in midair. I know it can be done, but can it be done affordably?

But I am getting ahead of myself here. I still have a lot of work to do before getting to the hot tub. It's just really nice to think about on cold nights like this.

Well, that's just spam diffy.

Direct deposit of my check is two days later than it would be if I deposited it manually. I got the stub today-- the deposit is postdated Friday.

Ah, well. At least I have a paycheck.

Cor, I'm debating going home early. I'm all collywobbles.
