#4064: Well, I seem to have heat.

On my way to work today it got too warm in the truck. Temperature outside was somewhere near freezing, though, so I'm still waiting for some really cold weather to find out whether or not my heater is actually fixed.

So today I got my uniform.

I got a nice box at work which contained:
* 5 undershirts
* white short-sleeve dress shirt
* white socks
* 2 clip-on ties

* 2 pairs of pants
* belt
* 2 tie pins
* v-neck sweater
So now I really look the part.

In addition, I got a #Major_electronics_retailer Santa hat, which is blue instead of red and has the logo embroidered on it. Whee! I asked for that specifically because 15th-25th this December are "Santa Hat days" at the store, and I wanted to participate. I'm jolly!

Particularly since the war on (some) drugs has had absolutely zero effect on the rate of drug usage and addiction.

Work went by fast today. I wasn't terribly busy but the day flew past, and suddenly it was time to go home. Well, it's nice to have a day where you're just busy enough.

    Flopped for about 20 min, had some ibuprofen and a shower; now I feel halfway functional. At least enough to eat dinner. Typing no longer hurts. This…

  • #8258: There is nothing left.

    I spent the last four and a half hours--with about a 20-minute respite--in motion. Pool is up. It's leaking, but I'm pretty sure I know where…

  • #8257: It really amuses me, in fact.

    He's right, this is their perennial response. "If we can't have abortions, then the men have to be sterilized." The theory is that the men must be…
