  • Christmas Report

    I’ve had an interesting Christmas.

    It started out Christmas Eve at the Dentist with my loose crown.  Turns out there’s nothing they can do, as its a cavity underneath the crown, and the whole tooth has to go.  Worst part is all of my options involve lots of dollar signs.

    I spent the night in Milo with the family and made out pretty good this morning.  I got a shiny new printer, a new power drill, and bunch of random stuff.  Buddy got a brand new cat tree identical to his old one.  As you can see in the picture, he just loves it!

    I got home tonight and spend what felt like forever setting up my new printer.  I don’t know if its my ancient router, or HP printers, but someone didn’t want to cooperate and gave me tons of shit.  I eventually deduced that for SOME reason, the printer does not want to work on my 5GHz wifi.  I put it on the 2.4GHz and it seems to be working.   After all its put me through, if it acts up one more time I’m done and we’ll be digging out a trusty old USB cable.

    In other news, I did my monthly web updates and somehow broke my genealogy website entirely.  I’m in mood to deal with it tonight though.

  • Basement – 1, Seth – 0

    While working in the basement yesterday, I managed to gash my head wide open and earn a trip to Walk-In Care.

    I was walking and bashed my head into a low hanging water shutoff valve (without its wheel) and it cut a huge gash in my head.

    I bled everywhere, and eventually got it super-glued back together.  My hear is all matted together and it still throbs from time to time.

    Worst part is my sleep machine mask sits EXACTLY where the goddamn cut is.  I couldn’t sleep with it last night as it kept irritating the cut, so I didn’t get much sleep 🙁

    What a friggen weekend…

  • Lazy Weekend

    I had a decently lazy weekend.  My parents came down and we finished painting one wall of my house.  We have vague plans to paint the whole thing next summer.

    I was hoping to get out kayaking one last time, but everyone was busy and I don’t like going out alone.

    Sat up last night for 2 hours listening to sirens as downtown Old Town burned 🙁  It brought back memories of Milo burning down several years ago.

    I put up a random assembly of Halloween lights on my deck today, so I’m ready for the season.

    I played a little Minecraft, explored a bit more of WayFar and made some more vague plans for my build.  The more I explore though, the more I question if I could find a better spot.  I guess I just need to keep exploring!  Need to find a savannah biome for Mike so he can build something orc-y 😀

  • World 2, Seth 0

    So I got out of work a little early today, and figured I’d take care of some errands.

    I went by Prompto to get an oil change, and was promptly thwarted.  They have 3 bays, and they all had 3-4 cars lined up waiting to get in.  Screw that.

    So then I went by Verizon to see if I could find a new case for my phone, as mine has appeared to crack.  Not a single damn accessory for my phone in the store. I have a Moto Z3, one of their flagship phones.  They have fancy attachments you can get, like better camera lenses, projectors, and speakers. NOTHING. Not a damn accessory, not a single phone case for ANY Motorola phones in the damn shop.

    So I’ve given up and now I’m home.  I want to go clean out the inside of my truck, but now I’m afraid of what insanity the world is going to throw at me if I do.  Nothing seems to be working out today.


  • Hometown Sadness

    I’m all distraught.

    I found out tonight that they’re going to be tearing down the last block of buildings on Main Street in Milo.  It really makes me sad 🙁

    Back in 2008, we had to watch half of Main Street burn down due to arson.  That was hard enough to see my hometown burning.  Now they’re just purposefully tearing down what is left.

    I know I’m being old and sentimental, but its still just sad to see small downs dying like this.
