  1. LB log - 2017 Week 42

    Guess who's back.

    This week's haul. $240 to have the car towed from the arcade to the shop, after it wouldn't start, even with a jump. $120 for a new car battery. This sequence of events put a large damper on the time off for the week. Look forward to next week's haul when I get the final amount on some dentistry work which a family member is scheduled to receive. I also obtained two arcade Tsum straps, because I felt like I could afford wasting that kind of money on something so ...

    At least this time I've remembered to do the brunt of this work now rather than try to squeeze it in later.

    Her car has returned. They repaired it for less than they had originally estimated, and in the process of doing so they had the car thoroughly cleaned out in preparation for its intended sale. The offer was made for me to pay the repair and retain ownership, and I accepted the offer. It seems like it will be some time before I find a good deal on a car.

    After ...

    Any old time would do.

    It was a long day today and I've had more nagging pains lately, yesterday in the testicles and today in the lower back. Some not-aspirin definitely helped today.

    This week's haul: $900 in car repairs for the lone remaining vehicle in our possession. I don't know why the issue at hand wasn't noticed on the last time I had brought it in, particularly since the last repair was for a drive shaft. Oh well. It does feel better to drive now, at least ...

    No noose is good news. That is unless you're looking for me to write something interesting here. Joke's on you.

    Oh yeah. Apparently the previous entry Week 37 got marked as private somehow. I don't understand why and I think I'd have to fully delete and repost the entry to change it, so I won't, because who cares.

    I've already cut back on my sweeps, but I think I need to go further now. I've had my fun. Today was just another coincidence, and soon they will not be ignored. ...

    There are many reasons for which I really do wish I would have stayed away and on my own path once I left. Already at this point I've grown to truly appreciate the good health that I have and the free time that I have. Playing Dragon Quest 11 right now is making me realize that unless other things in my life drastically change, I'll never have time for this kind of game ever again in my life. I just have too many other things which I really need to get done to justify the hours that I'm putting ...

    She started school.

    I'm expecting to see an additional $195 later today. I hope it's there. It's bad enough that my materials were rifled through on my days off. I can assume it was to look for the cards which I did accidentally keep, but it's still a little strange for that to have happened and then the shank flathead to be gone.

    An extra day off came and went and I don't have much in the way of anything to show for it other than having more time logged in Dragon Quest ...

    North Korea firing a missile into Japan's air space is an act of war, isn't it? Shouldn't there have been some kind of massive global reaction to this event? I'm just baffled as to how this transpired and the resultant reactions and responses have basically been no different than any other time before.

    Well, in other news of less import.

    I was set to meet a person to purchase a car, but on the morning of the meeting I called it off. The offer was for a car with 160000 ...

    Note to self. Next time you suspect of some kind of traffic incident like that, continue north to the next major intersection and go from there. I did not need to spend 50 minutes at that intersection today.

    With no other obligations pending on the days off, I indulged in playing a video game for a fair amount of time in the previous break. I have 11 hours logged on Dragon Quest 11, and that's with minimal downtime of me walking away to tend to something while letting it idle. I've ...

    Her car needs a repair which is going to be either $800 or $1100. I think this puts us in the market for another car to be purchased and to cycle her current one out.

    Houseflies. Every year it's a problem. This year it hasn't been so bad overall, but this past week it's become like it gets at least once per year where I have to kill a dozen after they've accumulated while I'm asleep or at work. I really wish I could get to the root of the problem on this.

    Songs are ...

    Today is a very rare Saturday night off, which I have taken for a relative's birthday party. She was talking about it months in advance, and I think carried distinct recollection of me not being there last year. It turned out well for us to be there this year. We arrived as cake was served and most of the people who weren't immediate family were leaving, and we were able to enjoy some time in the pool afterwards. Theoretically, after playing songs after writing this post, I could have some time ...

    The database was down, guys. It was down. The database.

    This week's haul: Chessie System hat. The hat I was wearing for work was something that I found on the ground when I was working at a mail facility so many years ago. By this point there were visible chemical stains on it, which is impressive given that the hat itself is black (or at least was black, and has now become ever so slightly lighter to look something like a dark navy blue). It was time. Oil and oil filter, the car's ...

    At work, there have been a few people who were forced to work an extra day during this week and only have one day off. I wasn't one of the chosen. I don't particularly look forward to having such a thing imposed on me, though I wonder if it will come to that point, given that my days off are during the week when work volume usually isn't very high and there are more people scheduled in general. I've thought about it before, and perhaps all the more so now, I should probably just stick with the schedule ...

    This week has thankfully been rather non eventful, at least as of Friday morning. No new four figure expenditures, no traffic incidents, and so on. I appreciate it. Of course, in writing this Saturday morning, I do so after bending the latch release on the unit good enough that it needs to be replace. At least it wasn't enough so that I couldn't wedge myself out from the last move. I almost had a good Saturday. Almost.

    I ordered a portable printer and it arrived on my first day off ...

    Road construction is back in full force as of the start of my work week. The commute into the garage took me an additional half hour due to a bridge being out. The warning signs which they do have up about a road closure was something which I thought applied to a road in a nearby forest reserve area since that's what was first to be torn up after the notices were set in place, so there was little surprise and much aggravation upon realizing that they did mean for it to apply to the main road instead. ...

    One of the things I forgot to mention in last week's haul was a new box fan which didn't come with a power cord. It uses the standard double-round AC input like that which we all know from various Playstation systems and the like, and despite the shape working, I still had to use a drill to whittle away some of the plastic casing inside the connection on the fan itself to get the power cord to actually fit. The fan works very well with that all in place, I'll give it that much. Alas, that fan is ...
