A nice friendly rant, off topic, but on topic maybe a little bit. Or so.
For some reason, we have these flies which have invaded the house in very small numbers. One here, one there. Mean looking striped flies, but stupid in behavior. They will let you grab them and throw them away. No need for swatter, they’ll wait. Almost like a June bug but smaller and equally as stupid. I can’t say what it is that makes them wait to be caught, but they’re driving my wife crazy.
Since the weather has changed for the better, I’m spending most of my time out in the Manly Garage recently, and there are no flies out there.
Every Sunday, my wife buys a long loaf of French bread from Jewel. French bread isn’t genuine unless the crust is nice and crunchy. Jewel’s French bread always has a soft exoskeleton. She says that it’s because they don’t let the loaves properly cool. Still makes a pretty good ham sandwich. The best bread is the container of a Portillo’s Italian sausage sandwich. The contents of that bread container is equally as awesome.
Looking blissfully forward into the near future, the Midwest Brewers Fest is coming on Aug. 25th to Plainfield, Illinois (real town) the same day as my buddy Jeff’s pig roast. The four Dark Lord Day attendees, two sons, a family friend and I, will attend both. Hopefully we can all return home in some decent shape. A designated driver (Aubrey, I think) will come along.
Shit. I still haven’t updated the Brew Review table. Tomorrow. I’ll do it tomorrow. Yeah.
The Suzuki Intruder is legal for riding on the streets for another year, complete with a recent license plate tag and insurance. I still don’t have an ‘M-class’ rating yet, and I still have to talk myself into braving the challenges of riding as a noob. I must get my confidence up to a comfortable level. The dead-stop clutching and slow maneuvering is my field of practice for the near future. Then a long trek to Venezuela.
There’s a TV out in my garage but it rarely gets turned on. I just don’t watch TV. My enjoyable times are those where I’m cruising the Internet or playing Bejeweled 2 on the iPad 1. That just may explain why you see some stuff on the site that you’ve already seen on TV. No apology here, that’s just the way it is.
I’d like a way to put all my pictures from iPhoto, from both computers, up on Dropbox. And my iTunes library. I have a 100GB limit which I pay for each month and I’m presently using about 2% of the total capacity. Tomorrow. I’ll do it tomorrow.
The simplest of inventions, such as a toilet flapper is driving me crazy. Screw the flies. It’s that drip-drip-drip in the toilet tank that’s wasting water and causing our an increase in our water consumption. Add that to the “tomorrow” list.
I’m glad I’m here and that you’re there, checking us out from time to time from the other end of that seemingly invisible wire they call the Internet.
