I am trying to relax. My shoulders/neck had gotten so tense for some reason this week that I could barely move yesterday -- and I couldn't for the life of me tell you why, but yesterday at work while I was working at the computer, it was becoming a trial keeping my head erect.
My wife informs me I need to stop playing MineCraft. She may have a point. I TRIED not to play last night, I really did...
The worst thing is, when I'm away from the computer, my brain is writing; when I sit down to write, nothing. Therefore, I play MineCraft.
So I'm just lazing around here -- I have a load of sheets in the washer and the oven is self-cleaning, and later I'm considering making an angelfood cake to go with the blueberries and strawberries, a very patriotic dessert. We're just grilling some burgers later, then maybe heading out to see fireworks, although the high today is going to be 110 again; still, somehow it's been managing to "cool down" overnight, sometimes dipping all the way into the 80's. The promised "cool down" doesn't look like it's going to happen this weekend, though; the projected highs for Saturday have come up from 105 to 108 or 109 (again, depending on which station you're watching -- I saw the projected high for today at 110 on channel 10, and 112 on channel 5).
I'm watching BBCA's "Star Trek: The Next Generation" marathon (I'm not sure why BBCA shows ST:TNG, but hey, what can you say) -- it amuses me to see them using what are essentially iPads on an episode made in 1989. (I noted that when I re-watched ST:DS9 a year or so ago.) Makes me wonder if Steve Jobs was watching this when he "invented" the iPad...
And hey, Baby Wil Wheaton!
Great pictures, kinda sad story. This, too, must pass. America's too busy spying on her own citizens and worrying about potential terrorists to worry about being in the space race anymore.
On that topic...
After paying all my bills and for some groceries this last weekend, I find I have about $20 cash left. Yikes. Another week to the next payday--although that, too, is pretty much all spoken for. Since we haven't decided what to do with the truck, and we still HAVE it, I have to take it down and see how much it really will cost to fix, because her tags are due this month, and I won't have an un-registered vehicle parked on my lawn. I'm redneck enough. (And I don't want a nastygram from the City.) If it's affordable, we'll do it; if not, I may have to finally break ties.
Have a happy and a safe day!
