Print Story Malfunctioning Washing Machine Incident Report

Status: resolved by repair.

Our washing machine started acting erratically nearly two weeks ago. This morning I washed a lot of clothes. I enjoyed the process of diagnosing the problems, and talking through the saga with some friends here (and my FiL). Thanks, volunteer appliance repair investigators!

That infers that I'm bored or not busy. I only wish I had more time on my hands. But, let us be honest with ourselves: I'd only waste it again.

For those who follow me more closely, you will note that my recent exhortation to the Emperor also means that my birthday has just passed. Ladies and Gentlemen (or however you identify; I don't mean to be gender exclusive), your beloved Satrap is now fifty. I'm getting old, folks.

So I had the catalytic converter stolen out of my Prius last week. I had been thinking, "You know, I should get one of those protector things for it..." but I guess they beat me to it.

Also: we're getting the band back together at CHIHUSIMEET II? This summer???
