pong

That's it....

... the City Hall trolls have really pissed me off now. I'm going to be ripping some people some new orifices in the very near future.

I did get to talk to iridium this evening and that put me in a much better mood. I got to give advice on buying a car. We caught up on stuff. It was good. Oh and she's another convert to the tribe of the gearheads... Groovy.

I'm feeling nearly sick. I'm not quite actually sick, but I seem to have symptoms of being sick. I took some cold medicine and it's working, but I didn't take the nighttime stuff so I'm still awake, but my eyes are really tired. Too much light for too long. I am sooooo looking forward to a dark room shortly.

Just as well though, I need to be awake long enough to take out the trash and clean the cats' litter box. Yay.

Today was another bad day on the parental unit front. I sincerely hope that I never put anyone through the crap that my folks are putting me through. It's like being a referee, coach, and star player all at once. I need to figure out what to do about some stuff, I need to do it, and I need to keep them from killing each other and any innocent bystanders in the process. An amusing thing I realized though is that while I may have quite a temper and I am quite obsessive about some things, I'm about a 100x mellower than either of them.

Oh, and I've fallen a little behind on replying to comments. I'll (hopefully) catch up this evening. Not ignoring anyone, just slowly trudging through those and the complications of having work and house stuff to deal with.

Let the weekend begin....

Despite an early start today (6am, ouch) the day turned out well.

I'm home already and I'm going to build some stuff for the house. I'll post some pics of stuff later (contingent on accomplishing photo worthy stuff and non-lameness on my part).

I dropped way too much $$$ at the comic book store on the way home. Must work on that impulse control ;). I did pick up some very cool stuff (3 Elseworlds books I didn't have, Alan Moore's Watchmen, and a random Batman graphic novel).

Ok, I'm going to go be productive now. That means I get to play with power tools... hehehe

A quizzing I will go...

It's been a while, deal.

... and in other news, I got a decent start on building stuff but it's dark now so I'm going to punt until tomorrow. It was a productive end to the day. Now to veg.

BTW, did I mention that today was abso-fucking-lutely gorgeous? I got to do some driving around before I made it home and I was reminded why I don't always hate this place. The weather was perfect, sunny warm, but still cool enough to be pleasant. Rolled down Molly's windows (door and rear) and I might as well have been in a convertible. I'm definitely going to have to get Hazel and Winona fully fixed up this summer. Winona would have been the perfect vehicle for a day like today. As it was, I was quite happy cruising along the highways with Molly. I probably drove an extra 40 miles today just so that I could enjoy the weather.

Hmmm... I'm hungry. Feed me Seymour....

That's probably not going to work. Oh well, time to hunt down some leftovers from the frigid wasteland that is my fridge.
