#2866: The rest of the day's stupidity HAS ARRIVED!

I called my sister and brother-in-law to see why he called me yesterday.

It turns out that--when I sent the check to my sister for my chunk of the property taxes--I transposed a couple numbers.

So the digits read $XYZ.AB and the ordinals in the written field read "EKS-ZEE-ZEE-WYE-WYE" or some such, and they wanted to make sure it was okay to change the number so that it matched the ordinals.

Which is fine. "Keep the excess, if any, as I owe you money anyway," I added. Just a stupid mistake and I don't f-ing care.

Besides that, however:

That crazy sister of mine in Maine? Drinking again. Drinking rum--which her liver won't tolerate--and doing crazy shit.


Okay: her 16-year-old son returned home (first I heard of this) and has been living there; but a week or three ago he had to barricade himself in his bedroom, and she spent all night pounding on the freakin' door.

Noooo, that's not self-destructive or abusive! Not at all!

So the kid has bugged out again--second time this year!--and things are, once again, afoot.


And here I was, all worried that my oldest sister was pulling some kind of "surprise inspection" crap--she's too busy to worry about that stuff right now.

So the aforementioned stupidity is about it for this week. That's fine.

I got the grass cut, but I had to work for it.

My back--good God my back. All I'm doing is sitting on the damn riding mower and it's hurting and hurting and HURTING...and then I hit a bump that rocks the mower back and forth, left-right, and ZANGG!! OH GOD THE PAIN.

...guess I need to make an appointment with the doctor. *sigh*

Okay? I spent twelve hours over four consecutive days sitting on a motorcycle and it didn't hurt once, so WTFF!

Dinner last night was General Tao's Chicken; and I don't remember much after that.

I tried to go to bed around 5-ish but my stomach clock wouldn't let me, so I ordered the Chinese food and was up until perhaps 8. (Oh--I did write some, that's right.)

Then I hit the bed like a laser-guided nuclear-tipped bunker buster; and except for a short period of wakefulness around 2 AM, slept.

Woke up at 5, got up sometime later--the rest has been blogged on.

The grass is cut, the stupidity is dealt with--hopefully the rest of the weekend is my own. Hopefully.

    "I certainly wouldn't want to commit to any dates or timeframes" said "Mark Nappi, Boeing Starliner program manager and vice president". The second…

    $13.8 billion loss of market capitalization since the whole "tuck-friendly swimwear" thing surfaced. Could not happen to a nicer company. * * *…

    Arrival was on UotsSuubs, so over the course of a few days I watched it while eating lunch. I still love it; you do not often see hard science…
