So here's what I want to know Scott. My oldest son still drives a shitbox 2000 Honda without anti-lock brakes, and only driver-side airbag, and he won't take my hand-me-downs. Can you get him a good deal on smallish used car? And I mean good like "How stupid can you be not to take this?"

We get to order our own so I chose
but I don't think the beer is included.

I did get fed prime rib yesterday; turns out the place gets invited to a lot of public events and they like to send someone to represent. Mmbeefy. 

I had to log into the old work email just now to find someone's address and ha ha ha there's a lot of people mad.

This would go in the Journals if we still had Journals...

So the little newspaper I have worked for for about a decade longer than I intended to, finally closed. Today was the last day. It wasn't unwelcome but the ignominious kiss-off certainly was. The twice-weekly paper that was part owner of us got sold and we were castoffs, so hey. My direct supervisor found out about it from someone on the street. "Hey it says here on the internet that the Enterprise sold." Boss: "say what now?"

We'd gotten so small, staff-wise, that if any one of us quit, the business would fold, so we found ourselves in a loop of each of us staying on because the timing wasn't good for one of the others, and round and round. So we're all actually okay with external forces ripping the bandaid off. I'll go to a local car dealership that my grandpa worked for, my dad worked for, and now me—different owners but the same dealership. I won't be doing sales though, more of an assistant to the GM or something, we're not sure. So anyway no worries, kind of exciting.

Now we have a little apartment on the back of our garage and the daughter lives out there. Tonight we were on the sofa thinking about turning on the TV when she comes in the house, goes and gets the toilet plunger and heads back out ... I follow, naturally, and there's effluvium coming up in the shower out there. Plunging did little, and a snake down the shower drain caused an exciting uprush of semi-solids.

So that's my Friday! Apologies to Jrzy for not fleshing this out more. I feel like there's got to be another 500 words at least on any of these paragraphs. I'll do better next time!


Geez. I leave for a week and all hell breaks loose. Good luck with those semi-solids, Scott.

Most people don't realize that the expression "change of heart" actually began as "chainsaw art". It's true. It had something to do with SFW cutting a new window in the back of his house to let more light in.
