- Status report on Operation Massive Mind Fudge
Of the two stumps that I pulled out of the driveway with ye antiquated truck of dubious value, one is now entirely busted into pieces. The other hasn't dried out enough to allow me to split the remains even after repeated blows with an 8lb maul. I've also progressed on refinishing the window frames in one of the two bedrooms on the third floor. Most of my time was spent removing the remaining glass from the frame and then sanding down the last pieces. I also spent some time applying a combination polyurethane/stain. The window is beginning to look pretty damned nice.
- You know you're just dying to buy some 72 pin SIMMs
In my eCommerce for fun and profit course, I have to list an item on eBaty. That item was kind of fun to list.
- On liberal bias in the media
The United States of America is founded on liberalism. Democracy and capitalism are both liberal systems. If you don't like it, move somewhere with a conservative government like Iran.
Oh, you were thinking of the subset of liberalism that USians call liberalism and not liberalism in general. In that case, there is no real liberal bias in the media. Studies to the contrary are, for the most part, funded by right wing think tanks and use questionable methodologies such as the recent Groseclose and Milyo study that contained absurdities such as the notion that the ACLU is a conservative organization and that the Wall Street Journal is one of the country's most liberal newspapers.
- It's that time of year again
Meat-fare Sunday. Mmm. Dinner was the meat loaf dinner for four from Boston Market. If I had know that by ``dinner for four'' they meant ``dinner for ten'', I would have only bought dinner for two as I intended to feed five people. That said, for about twice what it usually takes to feed my family at McDonalds, we had a veritable feast, fed the the upstairs tenants and put a good chunk of leftovers in the freezer. But it is meat-fare Sunday after all. No more meat for me until Pascha. :(
- On brushing teeth
Did you know that the tooth brush was invented just a few miles south of where I live? Just across the Ohio river in Kentucky, some enterprising soul invented the contraption that the Anglophonic world knows as the tooth brush. For those of you that are skeptics as to the veracity of this claim, I simply observe that had this device been invented anywhere else it would have been called the teeth brush.
- Our house is presently a house of plague
Last weekend, my wife fell ill with strep throat. On Monday, she started a course of antibiotics and is slowly recovering. On Friday my eldest daughter fell ill with the same symptoms. Come tomorrow, she will be escorted to her doctor's office. In the meantime, I coming down with a cold and hoping that it isn't strep.
- On getting old
My body feels like that of an old man. I'm sore all over. But my mind feels like that of a teenaged buffoon.
- Thank you and give me your money
That is all. Happy Sunday of the Last Judgment to All and to all a good night!
