As per request, a close up of my tiny emergency/dress pants/loose thread cutting Spyderco. It’s been living mostly full time in my pocket organizer, and doesn’t get that much use, but after two or three years of that it’s still sharp enough to shave the hairs off my arm. A solid little thing, I quite like it.

A guy on a motorcycle with a lacrosse stick on his back. Which of course reminded me of the best music video ever made:
Luckily, no evil robot football players were chasing him, so I don’t think the Future of Bloodball is here yet.
Drove through a cloud of smoke made by a bunch of Mennonites branding calves, and now I want a steak.
My dentist appointment got moved up to tomorrow, which means I don’t have to spend the next two weeks dreading it, but also means I don’t have the next two weeks to mentally prepare for it either. Three fillings need to be re-done, not the end of the world, but oh how I hate the sound of the drill and the feeling of the fingers-on-blackboard scraping in my head.
Something we found at grandpa’s, probably from his dad. According to the internet, they were made from 1880-1910. This one has been shot to hell and halfway back; doesn’t lock up tight at all and, well, notice the homemade hammer–great grandad was a Kansas blacksmith and I’m sure he made it himself.

So the ol’ dentist I’ve been going to for my entire life finally retired, and in the in-between time it took to get a new dentist I skipped an appointment. In that time frame I’ve developed another few cavities–hooray for me. So another $500 will be leaving my pocket in a couple weeks.
Teeth are expensive suckers to have in this day of high-fructose corn syrup… but I guess the alternative is worse. Wonder how much it would take to get set up like Jaws–bet he never had to floss.

Like I said, I don’t have a problem, I can stop anytime I want to.
Today I am camping out at home, eagerly awaiting the Sewage and Septic Sucking Services to show up and suck out the septic at the new house (who knows how long ago it was last done, and supposedly the previous tenants, before it was vacant for a year, were four Mexican families, and who knows how many people that actually represents). So, overload + sitting for a year = we don’t want to be sitting on a timebomb.
