    Thanks!

    Huh, that's true about YouTube, actually. I think I could probably learn from there.

    Canceled my shrink appointment today. Just didn't want to go. Going next week instead.

    Sado is still happening, though. I'd drag myself to that half-dead. I kinda feel half-dead right now, really.

    My ACL replacement is acting up. Sometimes if I bend my knee in my sleep, it cramps like a ************. Nightmares and pain last night. Headache starting up today.

    Sado won't fix the pain, but it'll clear my head.

    YouTube is remarkable for some things. I've taught myself to refinish my hardwood floors, and rebuild my foundation lately.

    Edit: or you can watch stupid people try to eat obviously inedible things, and/or pop enormous pimples and cysts.

    Aww, the engine's the coolest part... you haven't lived until you've bead-blasted pistons.

    Speaking of poisons...be very cautious about burning weeds. Make sure you (carefully) remove poisonous plants from the area first.

    You NEVER want to burn poison ivy or any other urushiol-bearing plant (oak, sumac).

    It can seriously injure or kill you to breathe it.

    When there are major wildfires, burnt poison ivy/oak/sumac fumes become a dangerous, wind-blown hazard that can kill you just by getting near it, especially if you're an allergic type.

    Got around to registering the vehicles, today. I'm getting the Desert Storm plates with the SW Asia medal on. I was at the outer edge of legal, good to have it done. The tax collector line, here, was remarkably small, having just done the same process in Florida less than 3 months ago.

    Hasn't happened. Maybe this weekend.

    Or next year.

    There were two species of wasp in that one holly. The little yellow bastiches (is that correct spelling?) are still there. I side kicked the trunk and they came out in mass. Unfortunately the bush is next to cedar lap and gap. Torching is not an option. Upside, the foot is strong enough to support my weight for side kicks again. Downside, the little critters don't fight on a points system.

    It's almost dark. Again.
