#4266: I'd better make some tacos soon.

Mrs. Fungus bought a taco kit today, so I know what that means. Heh.

I was hoping to get the grass cut tomorrow. Yesterday was Monsoon Day here in the Fungal Vale--as well as Thursday being Monsoon Day--so the grass has grown precipitously. I had to work today, so naturally we had no rain all day and rather pleasant weather...but now I see on the radar that we have more rain coming in, and rain is predicted every day until Wednesday. *sigh*

Anyone know where a man can rent a herd of goats?

Along with Monsoon Day we had a couple of power failures. We weren't home for the first one, but the second happened after Mrs. Fungus had gone to bed, and the juice was off for a couple of hours. I was surprised that we didn't have a power failure during the big storm on Thursday.

Incidentally, I've happened to notice that in none of the really big blows we've had in the past year did the birdbath fall over, the way it did shortly after we got it. (Last paragraph of that post.)

I am beginning to be convinced that some asshat blundered into the thing and knocked it over. I don't know who, or why he was in my back yard, but owing to the fact that I've seen it withstand some high winds--winds that did not precede the fall of the thing a few days after we got it--I am forced to conclude that some idiot ran into it and knocked it over.

Well, I guess we'll never know.

On the plus side, the repair I made to the thing continues to be watertight, so I've got that going for me.

Now to make tacos!

    Some fatuous pinhead on the radio said that Chicago was ready for "looting and other forms of protest". But you know what? It's fine. We no longer…

  • #7605: I don't even need lettuce any longer

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
