I didn't know you were still listening

Mainly cuz you're not.

Today was a very exciting day. Very exciting. I bought propane and brass screws, and I got an oil change. Plus, I got some porterhouse steaks and jalapeño-cheese bratwurst made from local, grass-fed livestock.

My foot hurts, though. My doctor convinced himself that I have gout, but I'm not convinced. Especially since all the gout-treatments he's put me through haven't affected how much my foot hurts at all. Though the big, green pills [indomethacin] give me the most raging and prolonged, uh, side-effects, that I have to come home from work after being on them for a couple days.

I am a bit irked that it has been 4 weeks, and my fancy new holster is still not here. It said, "allow 3-4 weeks for shipping as we make these to order." Instead, I have had to make do with this, for which my review is not glowing.

The Childrens have a homeschool science fair tomorrow. Max had me make him a model of an ear, and Hannah originally wanted to do a project on earthworms, but all the worms died. So she decided to do a project about defrosting your freezer, cuz the freezer in the under-the-counter bar fridge needed defrosting. She did an excellent job on that. We took a lot of pictures of her defrosting it, and she did some research on the history of refrigeration (burying stuff in the ground packed in snow, ice boxes, early fridges, and frost-free models), and she explained how refrigeration works. She even used a semi-colon in one sentence.

She'll get a medal. Everyone gets a medal - the same medal. They make us buy the medal in order to be allowed to participate. The thing with homeschoolers is that you always think of them as crazed, right-wing religious nuts, but in fact most of them are actually radical leftists who homeschool because they think public schools are too strict and conservative.

Though when I refer to them as "your people" when talking to The Mrs., she gets irked.

I shot this a week ago, but I only managed to get it uploaded today. Enjoy.
