One more week, and a weekend with The Wife in Texas visiting her mom.

The lip is getting better in most ways, but is even more annoying than before at the moment. Do they use wire sutures? There's something that feels metallic sticking out of my lip, and it BOTHERS me, it's like having a fishhook stick in my lip. If this is what a lip piercing feels like, I wonder that people don;t go mad from the annoyance. OTOH, the internal lump is smaller every day, and I can use my CPAP machine again.

Which doesn't explain why I'm getting four hours of sleep a night again. My brain is trying to kill me, as Calvin would say.

I have a long laundry list of chores, but one of our Scouts finally called for help for his Eagle project. Since my job in the troop is prodding Scouts into getting their Eagles, I was kind of bound by previous promises.

So, here I am, going up to Antonio's house at 9. Phone call, can I make it 10? Sure. Phone call, can I make it 10:30? Son, you are wasting more and more of my day, and we haven't even started work yet.

The project is to make and post bird boxes for the regional parks district. I don't know who specified 1/2" inch redwood for the boxes, but it's too thin, splits too easily, and is too bloody soft for decent work. Add to this the changes the Scout has made in the base plan, and his disinclination to be concerned about things like squaring corners and measuring where to put screw holes, and you end up with ten very idiosyncratic (i.e., no two alike) bird boxes. EBRParks needs some truly bohemian birds to move into these spaces.

I was hoping for a four-hour project, we were there for eight hours. Thank Mogg I brought a full toolbox, or we'd have been driving 1.5 inch screws with our fingernails. He'll have to post the boxes with someone else, some other weekend, but, Heckfire, he's 90% done with the work on his Eagle project, so YAY ANTONIO! The chores list goes until tomorrow, I guess. It's worth it, to get one more Eagle.

Well, finishing up at 6 PM Saturday evening pretty much kills my plan of treating myself to a decent dinner out, because I didn't feel like waiting until 7 just to get seated. Cheap crummy fast Chinese and raid the fridge for vegs. Big treat.

Just spent a half-hour writing up and explanation for a friend on how I use GIMP to do my weird little webcomic. Too tired to do anything, too awake to sleep, not hungry enough to make a real meal, bored and tired and hungry enough to want SOMETHING TO EAT DAMMIT.

Re: Ooooooooo
I see. Should I head to the bunker now, or do I have time to grab a bag of CheezDoodles on the way?

I think The Feychild's mad at me anyway, maybe I should send more chocolate. ;)

Re: Ooooooooo
I don't think she's mad at you.... just disappointed you didn't find the easter egg she left.

Re: Ooooooooo
Give her my sincere apologies, and explain to her that I have yet to find Waldo, either.

Re: Ooooooooo
I don't think she'd mind if I gave you a little hint...

White Pony has the magic easter egg.

it seems like after many surgeries that the area that was worked on will have lots of extra sensations.

i had some teeth pulled the other month and my sutures had a metallic like taste to them

Why I think it was metallic:

1) when the plastic surgeon was ordering his setup, he ordered several different types of sutures, and one of them was "4-Oh chromic".

2) IINM, chromium is bacteriostatic, so that would be a good material to put in a place where you don't want infections.

Hope you're doing better.
