I spent way too much time on a stupid project today

Am I the only one who finds himself singing that song from Fiddler on the Roof at odd times during the day? You know the song

"Depressionnnn, depression! Depression!"

I didn't get my to-do list done today, but I did spend some time mountain biking through the woods.

No regrets

mid century house for sale 

This one's over the top for me but there are some details I just love.

The firecracker bathroom tile? The basketweave wood wall? Those lighting fixtures?

Pretty neat.


Alright folks, if you're interested in reading a little creative nonfiction about my Carmax day, I've posted a thread on an old internet hangout of mine, Grassroots Motorsports forums.


It's not the best place to archive an adevnture story, but I've met a lot of the guys there through the years and it seemed appropriate.

Be forewarned, it's a bit verbose.


Shock G is dead at 57.

I listened to Digital Underground quite a bit years ago, and the Humpty Dance Lyrics are so uniquely funny and playful that I still find myself quoting them at random events in daily life.

Silly things like "I like my oatmeal lumpy," or "alright stop whatcha doin, cause I'm about to ruin, the image and the style that you're used to."

Guy had a great unique talent.

I got an unexpected notification that DTE had approved my solar install yesterday, so it was a very green Earth day for me. I have my lil' BMW charging on sunlight right now.

Also both the fast-charge stations I visited yesterday had been converted to free use for Earth day.

Me: oh the car rental place is only a mile from the dealership, maybe I can walk there - just one intersection to cross how bad could it be?

The Intersection: 🚙 💀 ⚰️

oh, it's a bit cheaper to rent a car one-way. I may do that instead just to avoid dealing with another human in the car

I am booking a 2 hour Uber to buy a car that I have not seen in another state

This will surely go smoothly

This weekend I found some Morels, Ramps, and Pheasantbacks. They made a great Gnocchi!

@csalzman think you'd be up to a commission?

I cut a hole in the wall of my bathroom to uncover a laundry chute the previous owners drywalled over.

Want a slim wooden door for it. Maybe bottom-hinged?

Today is my usual day of parenting the pod for virtual school

Except they're all back in person on Fridays!

So I got 5 quiet hours to myself. Spent that by relaxing, working a bit, and reading. Trying not to feel guilty about getting little done.

Heading to pick them up in a few minutes.

Are there any mushroom foragers on this instance?

Snek guide: what is an animal that is awake at night?

Kid 1: Nocturnal!

SG: What about during the day?

kid 2: Diurnal?

SG: Correct! Now can anyone tell me what the word is for an animal active during the evenings and mornings?

My daughter: Crepuscular!

SG: Wow! 10 points to Gryffindor!

(and yes, she did correct him that she's in Ravenclaw)

The hospital is full, but work is status quo for now. Family is happy-ish and healthy.

Been spending my down time rearranging the flow of our house, swapping living room with dining room furniture. Trying to purge lots of our extraneous stuff we never use.

Garter Sneks are out today in great abundance in Sugarbush park.

MAGA in-laws: maybe we would get the Johnson and Johnson one

Me: oh cool here's a clinic today, it's a bit of a drive but you live in suburban hell so you love driving lol. What time can I sign you up for?

MAGA in-laws: ope wow what a nice day to go golfing

Johnson Johnson vaccines avail today
