    Not cool

    Blew a tire today. Ended up having to replace two of them. It was not fun putting the spare on in 90 degree heat on the side of the freeway.

    So far I've missed out on Medieval Times, the San Diego Zoo and the Knott's Berry Farm Soak City.

    At least I have all the leftover beer from our housewarming party
    I've done two of those things! Medieval Times is nothing to be too sad about, though it did provide some nice "OMG, I can't believe such a place exists" qualities. The San Diego Zoo, well, that place is pretty awesome, so you did lose out on that one. I can't speak for the others, but anything with the word "soak" in it has my attention. Its supposed to be 99 here later this week. WTF?!

    Am reviewing public comments submitted online for a Final EIS and someone still has a Juno email address... I haven't heard of anyone using Juno since the dial-up days.

    That is random! What are the odds?

    I moved 7 cubic yards of mulch this weekend. 3 more to go. I am going to be buff after this.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Sad.......

    My dog died today. Had little Buddy for 16 years Couldn't be with him either because I'm stuck in Saudi-Dakota right now He was a black and white purebred sheltie dog. I'll always remember the good ole days when he used to bite the ankles of passing runners.....

    Sorry TO! 16 years is a really wonderfully long time. Lucky pup to have you take care of him so long.

    Miss you btw. Hope S.Dakota is treating you well.

    {{TO}} So sorry about Buddy dying. It is always so difficult to say goodbye to our furry family members.

    Who can't eat those ? Me, not because of allergies but dental work

    I was tempted with a really SA comment before.

    I'm sorry. It's got to be awful when you're not there with him. 16 years is a good, long life.

    It must be the day for car mishaps.

    Yesterday afternoon, at a stop light outside of town, a little Kia that was about a half car length in front of me began to back up, slowly backing into the front of my car despite my honking and flashing. We pulled over to the side of the road, and a woman who looked to be pushing 90 got out. Her car started to roll away. Against my better judgment, I chased after her car, got the door open, hopped in, and slammed on the brake. I was almost standing in the car, hanging out the driver side door, because the front seat pushed as far forward as it could go. The transmission was in D. No noticeable damage -- there was a scuff on the side of the bumper which might have been from an earlier curb scrape --- but still, I see her in the news at some time in the future for driving through a farmers market.

    Yes, it must. I hit a deer this morning on my way to work. Second in the 9 months, boo. Nice of you to chase after her car, glad you didn't get hurt in the process!

    The writers for our local rag tweet from public hearings. One of our municipalities is preparing to interview candidates for their next city manager. One of the writers tweeted this comment this afternoon...

    The position will take up $70-$90,000 of city's budget. Six people will be interviewed after the Fishing Rodeo, Sept. 8.
    Fishing Rodeo? Small town Florida...

    Comfort me with an apple. Solace me with a flagon. For I am sick of love. Bible? Shakespeare? Bible I'm pretty sure. In either case, I'm sick of love. You know, it's too damn bad that you can't get like a "Carfax" report on people. I guess if you could human interaction would pretty much cease, huh? Oh well.
