and to top it off, unlike most dads, I don't have a pot belly.

Plus, Plaquenil, tape memories, mattress memories, one more day, this old funky house, nerd music, and less.

Poll: Favorite obsolete musical media?

The (nearly) end of school picnic was a success from my point of view, I had a nice time, and was even social, chit chatting away. Even better, I don't have a pot belly, whereas most dads did. I should take a pic of my lean, sunburned and tanned self. I just need to crop out the walker.

I was in decent physical form, due to sleeping in a bit, taking lots of Tylenol, and slathering my aching areas with capsaicin cream. We baked a double batch of chocolate chip cookies to bring, and since Mrs. Ha decided to go shopping for a while, I grabbed the kids and went in the fast car ( as nearly five year old calls the Tercel).

First I had to root though my tape collection, which  mostly fits in two ten ream paper boxes. It was a hot day Saturday, and the Tercel has no air conditioning, so I needed appropriate music. I really wanted some soul, but couldn't find any, so I went with some BMW, nothing like reggae on a hot humid day.

We got there fashionably late, and saw Porsche-family heading into the pool area, so I sent the girls with them while I dropped off the cookies. We spent a few hours swimming, with me spending most of my time in the pool helping nearly five year old swim to and from the wall, plus a bit of ogling. While there was a smattering of bikinies and one pieces, tankinis (some with boy shorts) seemed to be the suit of the day. I reckon they're more flattering, though I have a pretty open mind about MILFs, I can usually find something to appreciate.

Over a quick lunch I met an imcoming kindergarten family, they live near us, so nearly five year old and their girl will be on the bus together. We all went back to the pool together, and nearly five year old and her friend ended up running around the splash pad a lot, while I hobbled after them.

Mrs. Ha showed up fiveish (she had a one piece) and I decided to leave to get a new circuit breaker, the one we have controlling our ceiliing lights kept tripping.

Doesn't it figure, our box uses special, hard to find and not stocked at the big box hardware store breakers. So instead of the $3.50 ones I can buy at Lowes Depot, I need to mail order $20 ones. Fricking Wadsworth. Of course, I found this out after repeated trips to the big box places.

Father's Day was mellow, as we're celebrating it with my folks next weekend. Mrs. Ha did get us a memory foam mattress pad, as we both have trouble sleeping on our sides, her shoulders bother her, and my hips bother me (too bony). The bed is very nice and cushy now.

The ac's went in, too, and for the first time ever, I cleaned the filters. They were a disgusting filthy mess. We did need them yesterday.

One more day of getting up at 5:45! Two more days of school. One more school related picnic.

My Doc left me a message, I get to try Plaquenil, an immuno-mod drug also used for anti-malarial treatments. The possible side effects sound great, vision loss, hair loss, sensitivity to sunlight, aversion to crucifixes and a preference for wearing black. Stay tuned.

Sunday at the Goodwill I found a TMBG CD, I figure for a buck I can get even nerdier. It's the one with the sun song, and Istanbul.

I miss the days before you could trade music over the internet. Back in the days before broadband, if you wanted bootlegs, you had to make contact with someone and agree to trade. I got into big, expensive Japanese tape decks (some with three heads), head cleaners, Maxell IIs tapes, etc, amassing about 500 hours of analog tapes before getting a CD burner and broadband. I think tapes are my favorite obsolete musical media, what's yours?

I'm sure Security can help you out by greyrat (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 07:46:00 AM EST
by providing a few still frames to choose from. They did here. We can't even have camera phones. But they give us 1Gb jump drives...

I've always liked records by MartiniPhilosopher (2.00 / 0) #10 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 09:26:53 AM EST
if for no other reason than the fun things you can do to kid's minds by pointing out a few fun facts about disk rotation and how the inside is going faster than the outside but both complete a rotation in the same amount of time. Hours of quiet can be had by putting a record on and letting them stare at it while trying to figure out how that works.

Dude. I am so reporting you. by ObviousTroll (2.00 / 0) #11 Mon Jun 19, 2006 at 11:21:13 AM EST
You were feeding them the special brownies, weren't you?

I know it's fun to watch them fall over like that, but still....
