So we have a big pipe fitting that needs to be returned to the company who shipped it to us (mispackage), and the office is right next to the UPS shipping center, so I went over there to ask them how they’d suggest returning it. The nice lady there told me just to tape up the (beat up) box it came in and send it back that way. Little did I know how much the government shutdown affects… oh wait, yeah it doesn’t affect UPS shipping centers at all.
When I got back, my mother sent me an email from the local Mexican church that makes and sells delicious delicious tamales as a monthly fundraiser, and asked if I wanted any. I said “I thought they wouldn’t be able to do that this time because of how the government shut down.” Oh wait, no I didn’t say that. I said “YES PLEASE.” Government shutdowns don’t affect tamales.
Then I started writing a blog post about how the government shutdown had ruined some of the day to day things in my life, but I realized that because of the government shutdown, the internet wasn’t working, so I couldn’t work towards my new goal of 4,000 posts (passed 3,500 a couple weeks ago!). Oh wait, no, that’s not right. The internet is still here and wasting our time just as much as usual.
Who knew that government shutdowns would be so hard to live through?
And YOU literally know who YOU are.
Muaha. Muahaha. MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!
And the ending… oh that ending. So glad this wasn’t for 2001 Flight Simulator…
Only a slight amount of skidding across the surface involved. Now, do I leave them there in hopes of making a Mun base, or attempt to get them home on a questionable fuel supply…
My first successful dock in KSP. YYYYYEEEEAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
According to WordPress today is the day, two years ago, when I started getting the feeling that Blogspot wasn’t the way for me anymore, and so started this one to mess around with. Nearly a year later in the beginning of March 2012 I made it official and came here. The crazy thing is, I felt like the Blogspot one was just starting to take off, getting more and more views, but I just didn’t want to deal with Google’s never ending unsupport of alternatively ignoring Blogger and then adding more and more “features” no one liked, not to mention having all of my stuff under one account never makes me comfortable. Since then I’ve held pretty steady here, but no where near the same number of incoming links as it seems I used to get. Ah well, I guess my brand of free ice cream is a flavor like “Summer Tomato”–an acquired taste for only connoisseurs (how do you like that, right? Nothing like stroking both my and my viewer’s egos!). In the end, I like using WordPress a lot more than Blogger (much easier to post pictures from my phone, and to embed videos, among other things), and that’s really all I care about.
It’s just missing Norm Abrams…
I don’t care what anyone else says, right, left, or underground: PBS is the only TV station I watch.
Don’t Pollute! Ma-a-a-agic A-n-n-nimal-l-l-l-ls!
I liked Beats Antique for their music before, but after seeing this I like them because they’re crazy, too.
That skull is great. I may need to pick up a couple more of them. Lots of different styles available, too.
Oh, and I now declare this side done for now; the two stickers that I’ve been waiting for for two weeks are supposedly coming next week, and will go on the other side. Why a sticker takes almost a month to ship, I don’t know.
“Majority of people.” This lady apparently never checks her email, voicemail, snail mail, listens to the news, or to the cars honking outside the capitol building or anything but the tiny voices inside her head that whisper “Breath in. Blabber out. Breath in. Blabber out.”
I thought it was snowing, but then it just turned out to be a flurry of tiny Styrofoam bits.
O hi! I didn’t see you there! You probably should’ve noticed that this post is in the “wasting time” category? I think it’s probably what someone else might call “meta.” Or not. Whatever.
Here you go!
You “think”? Don’t think mechwarrior, find out!
I went to the stylish beach.
I found a sea shell and said
“You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
She placed the shell to her ear
i am following you.
I like what I see
I am really grateful
so how are you?
in poor health undoubtedly
you command everybody
you shield this hike inside
just a hermit crab inside
a lot of shakiness
Cut and pasted and mixed and matched several spam comments in various ways to get these. No typing was done on my part, only sorting words and punctuation that was already there. I especially like the first one… it’s creepy.
