#2996: Good God, I've got a headache

We got the brakes bled, and I took one last drive around the block to make sure everything was working all right. It would have been better if the brakes hadn't had a serious coating of rust on them, but they work, and the car's safe to drive.

So now I'm going to play WoW for a little while...if I can concentrate on it. Heh.

    Hit Jewel to get some sundries, including supplies for dinner. Gonna fire up the grill and make burgers, and if I'm feeling particularly plucky I…

  • #7747: Ahh, yes! This is what I needed!

    Work today featured me schlepping PCs across the warehouse at the near off-site. Back was feeling dandy this morning; by quitting time, not so much.…
