#6143: Friday, relaxing, taking it easy, doing nothing

Pre-scheduled day off today. I expect Mrs. Fungus will spend it sleeping, for which I don't blame her. If the fool cats hadn't woken me up I'd still be in bed, too. I shall return there in a little while.

To my surprise, Ormus came to the end of the Legion storyline, rather abruptly--I didn't realize I'd hit it--and suddenly there was another quest in another place which apparently leads into the next expansion, due out sometime this year.

There's still plenty to do in the Legion expansion, of course, but Mrs. Fungus and I are doing those parts together so I won't do them solo. That includes the lead-in bit I mentioned above--so all I could really do last night was stuff I've done half a million times, and I didn't feel like it, so I gave up.

Sat in my rocking chair with my MP3 player and listened to music with my eyes closed until bedtime while Mrs. Fungus watched TV.

That bridge collapse in Florida--

Not long ago I saw a video from a dashcam which showed the actual collapse. There was a crane doing something near the central pylon of the completed structure, maybe 20 or 30 feet out from there, and that is where the initial break happened. Looking at the video with the standard YouTube viewer does not let you single-step through frames but as far as I can tell it's a case of everything being just fine, until suddenly it wasn't. I'm curious to know what the crane was doing, because the failure occured right where that crane was.

The other day I was looking over the garage and thinking about what a mess it is, and wondering if there's any possible way to put it right.

Warm weather cannot get here soon enough for me...and yet I am content to wait for it, as long as possible. Because once it gets warm, there is so much work waiting to be done....

Possibility of snow on Saturday. We're supposed to get about an inch of the stuff. We'll see.
