a cocoon in the butterfly effect
I have one less sister-in-law in my home, and the best of luck to her in Arizona where she's taken a temporary nursing job for the next couple weeks. Nothing new has happened with the kitchen improvement juggarnaut, and it could be a little trouble to get that fire engine jump-started since now my workdays are swingshift on Thursday through Monday; my wife's are Sunday through Thursday, thus we do not have any days off together. Not that we were all that motivated to act when we both had Saturdays off, of course, but any excuse will work. :-D Life otherwise is pretty much there, and if the volume of blooms on the bushes in my front yard are any indication this year looks like it may be quite rosy. Yeah, that was bad, but I'm serious that my plantlife looks better presently than it did last year. I am loving my Sansa Clip MP3 player, which arrived two days after I ordered it. Notice that "Sansa Clip" means it has a clip, and "Sansabelt" means the pants do not require a belt. Ugh, sorry. Too many Lillian Vernon et aliis catalogs as a youth... I was the only kid in the seventh grade who got the joke when the English teacher said, "The only kind of 'constant comments' I like is my tea." (My grandmother knew that woman well, and hated her.)
Not much of a blog entry but it will do for the moment. I haven't really been keeping up very well (I'll blame work) but you do get entries. And the latest update to Laughter is the Spackle of the Soul was posted several days ago so I'm not yet behind on the important stuff.
And by now you've read my stories on Tech Comedy about the person who said they were going to bring their computer, then cut it down to motherboard, to me and what I was handed was their hard drives. And the rest of the machine had been disassembled and apparently parted out by starfish daddy. She could have handed me a plastic bag.
