Pointless humor:

Today when I stopped at the Holiday Station Store for more sushi, I saw a sign in the window that I read as


I think I still may be a bit addled from the weekend.

Reboot time.

It happens a lot during development when you're talking to hardware. Of course it takes a few minutes to reboot, so I take this time to write something intellectual and deep.

I like chicken.

Yes, this is a boring time.

I wonder what would happen if I mixed concrete with beer instead of water?

I hope it doesn't rain.

I should take the dog for a walk.

Ah, rebooted. Gotta go.

I really should just keep this window open.

So fairoriana is still heavy with child. I still have a few hours left in my bid for the birth day. I figure if not today, then Friday the 14th.

Wait, was that a scream I heard?

The sky looks like it's clearing up, so perhaps I will be able to cut concrete tonight. That will be noisy. I have hearing protection, don't worry. It will just annoy the neighbors.

Hey, it's not much louder than a jet-powered lawnmower.

Which reminds me, I need to mow the backyard. I think I'll probably need to use the weed whacker though, as the grass is likely too long for the mower. It's around 15" now. The dog almost gets lost.

I could do the front yard with the mower, it's not really too bad. Unless there is a minion who would like to come and whack-and-mow whilst I cut concrete blocks with a dandy power tool.

And oh yeah, cleo is coming at some point to scavenge the brick pile for a patio. The leftover bits and pieces will likely become repair fodder for the house trim.

Ah, the joys of almost owning a home.

I have this lovely bed that I'm willing to sell.

It's a really nice queen-sized bed, made of the space-age foam that molds to the shape of your body. It's the bed that I had in the apartment in Iowa, so it's had less than a year's use.

I don't need it anymore, and I really don't have room for it unless I want to create some sort of queen bunk-bed thing, and I don't think that's gonna fly.

It ran me just under $1k new. I figure around $500 for the whole kit and caboodle (sorry, the caboodle is not sold separately), but I'll consider offers. If'n you know anyone that is looking for a bed, a soft, comfy bed, let me know.
