Tweet of the Day, I Didn’t Hear A ‘No’ edition.

I apologize in advance.

You don’t have to care, obviously. I am faintly embarrassed that I care, even a little. But there we go. We all have our little quirks, and I’m in the business of (among other things) showing them off.

I don’t know why this is so funny.

I’ve watched it four times, and every time I just collapse into helpless laughter. It probably says something very unfortunate about my sense of humor. Also: CAT MODE.

PS: My cat doesn’t do any of this, by the way. So it’s not that.

Tweet of the Day, Did We Ever Get An Answer To This? edition.

Because it was a legitimate question, back in 2007.

Via @3YearLetterman.

We’re getting hit with a tropical storm Saturday. Sorta.

It’s going to be a lot more of an Eastern Shore problem than an inland Maryland problem. That being said, they’ve already canceled the SCA event my wife was going to attend, and we’re gonna get wind and rain. Will there be a power failure? Very possibly! Will it get fixed right away? I guess we’ll see!

At any rate: if you live on the Eastern Seaboard, please avoid mucking about with small boats this weekend. Thanks.

Tweet of the Day, …It’s Not A BAD Strategy edition.

And, yet: wow.

There’s a lot of drama going on behind that fairly bland statement. I’m sure I don’t have to explain exactly what though, right? It’s obvious even to me, and I’m absolutely a civilian. Career military must be rolling in the aisles.

Adventures in toilet repair!

We’ve got an imperfectly functioning toilet mechanism. It’s not a problem with the seals, and my wife and I both think it’s not going to require popping off the tank to fix it. I have the parts I need, and I’ll tackle the job after lunch. It’ll either be a half hour job, or all day today and tomorrow. Wish me luck!

[UPDATE: Well, I had to pop out for a proper wrench. But everything SEEMS to be working all right, now. Giving it a couple of hours to break entertainingly, though.]
