In other media news, after reading a review on Slate I've been getting sucked into Young American Bodies, a mumblecore webvideo soap about a bunch of 20 somethings living in Chicago (they used to be called slackers, I don't know what the current term is). I'd rate it as NC-17, you see external genitalia, and I see one big perk of being the director and star is you can avoid shrinkage shots.
Six year old's class had an all day and overnight expedition in Webster Park, Tuesday morning I volunteered to set up tents, in the drizzle. I setup about 6 tents. Mrs. Ha went up for the night, and didn't sleep a wink, making her extra tired for Thursday Sixth grade Exhibition, the 21st and last. She had fun, re-enacting the Settlers life by hiking through the woods pulling wagons of belongings, and cooking over an open fire.
Eleven year old ended up tagging along to Friendly's for ice cream after her exhibition, as the overnight had made Mrs. Ha and six year old too tired.
I've moved into my new cube, I've tossed and recycled an astonishing amount of stuff. In my new cube, I have more space on the side of my file cabinet for magnetic games, I'll have to think of the appropriate one to start it.
In other moving news, the college/post-college kids across the street moved out, throwing away an incredible amount of stuff. It was mostly girls, so I didn't get any thing good, but Mrs. Ha and eleven year old got some nice clothes. The new people have already moved in, but they haven't done anything unusual yet. The neighbors in upstreet_boys duplex moved out, and new ones moved in, one of whom has a V-twin. We'll have to meet up, and exchange the secret handshake.
In other motorcycle news, I've only ridden to work twice this week, but my odometer passed 15000. I've put 5000 of those miles on it. I think I need to recheck my float levels, as I'm running out of things to check on the carb to lower the idle.
I didn't ride today, even though it's a good day for riding, as eleven year old wants to go to Girl Scout camping this week, and she needs to be ready by 5:30 tonight. I wouldn't have time to ride home and change and exchange vehicles, so I have to leave a little early and pick the girls up at preschool_moms.
