#6188: Making myself feel better

Today was an odd day. Went to work, worked on the project, had pot luck for lunch (office was celebrating May 5 on May 3) and then came home tired. Made spaghetti, and Mrs. Fungus and I watched the latest ep of Gotham.

Ordered glasses last night. $60 shipped, about 20% of what the wrong frigging RX did from Lens Crafters, and they're virtually identical to the frames I have now, only not-broken. (I am tempted, in fact, to buy a couple of extra pairs with zero RX lenses; the frames are $16....)

Cooler today, and rainy.

Funny thing: I still haven't gotten around to putting the new exhaust mounts in the Jeep. The coat hangar wire that I wrapped around the pipe the last time it got the danglies is still holding it up; the made-for-the-purpose metal strapping that I had used for the first two jimmy-rigs didn't last more than a month each.

Guess you can't beat the classics.

Still: need to dig into that project one of these days. I'm not sure when, though. Getting the rear brakes fully functional, and replacing the front shocks, is much more important.

Tomorrow is Friday, and I'm hoping to finish the last of the special project at work tomorrow. I have a bit more than a day's work remaining on it.

If anyone asks how I like it, my response will be, "Well, it's a nice change of pace." I'm going to say that because it's a very positive statement that reveals absolutely nothing about how I really feel about this project, which is that I really don't like doing the "outbound call" thing, even when I'm just calling people to let them know what to expect when one warehouse closes and another one opens.
