#1237: AF on the road 8

Today was a good day.

Went and got the starter cover for the chain saw, reassembled chain saw, and cut more wood.  Getting the recoil spring into the cover took some doing, but I finally figured out how to do it and got it installed; then it was a relatively quick matter of reassembly from there, and brrp the chainsaw started.

I finished Kanokon, Rosario + Vampire, and Ultimate Girls.  R+V had a great ending.  K had a good ending.  UG was okay.

I tried watching the first DVD of Firefly on this machine, got maybe 1/6th of the way through it, and gave up:  this laptop cannot play DVDs at all well.  The playback would hiccough and the sound and video would run out of sync.  Argh etc.  It’s especially annoying since I was enjoying the hell out of watching it.

I bought that set the night my Dad took a turn for the worse; no wonder that it took me so long to get around to watching it.

Anyway, so the weather was very nice, and my errands went without any serious problems.  I still have some wood left to cut, and cut it I will—later.  I did a lot and then stopped, needing rest.  Most of the stuff that I can cut with this saw has been cut; now it’s mainly cleanup.

My niece is liking the High School Girls manga.  She zipped through volumes 1&2, and just borrowed 3&4; I hope she can get through them all before I leave on Saturday.

…and it’s already Tuesday night, and there are not that many days left in my vacation.  Well, you know what they say:  half of the fun is getting home.

    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…
