Small unworthy things - as you were

Recommended Posts

An utter jobsworth told me off for walking my bike through the station with the light on because 'it could distract the drivers'. Bare in mind it's a bike light, not an industrial strobe, and I was walking away from the trains so they couldn't have seen it anyway.

Just shat myself. Got a whatsapp from my wife saying she has diabetes and is now a high risk pregnancy.

Then I saw it was a forwarded msg.

Lol, last week my mom got a text from my step-dad saying "Going to the hospital. Love You" with no context. She didn't know he had an appointment and was frantically texting and calling him because she thought it was an emergency and there's no coverage in the building. Safe to say I was told she was steaming mad when he got home.

So I finally went and bought the infamous chicken sandwich from popeyes, to see if the hype was worth it. It was alright. I actually thought the brioche bun and sauce better than the chicken itself.

The word “was”. 

I was typing it for something else, and I just realized how much I dislike this word.

“Was”. 

Not for what it represents, but the spelling.

”has” ok.  “Gas”  ok.  

Just say “was” then look at it.

Right?

There are a great many things wrong in this world, and “was” is one of them. 

Fuzz.

Edit: Also the letter “W”. That is also terrible.

Just dropped in to say I've just spent the last two weeks in Grand Cayman in a beachfront condo.  Damn sweet.    

Still don't have a dog, though.

If you made a list of the five greatest things ever, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Trader Joe's would be unlikely to make the cut.  However, they would definitely come up in conversation. 

Also, I wrestled the lid of the pickle jar off and splashed pickle juice all over my around the house cardigan sweater from Target.

Maybe we need another cute adorable thread? The other ones I think have all been archived.

I've always heard Chick-fil-A was the best.  Haven't had either of them, though.

Why is it that goats are fucking assholes generally, but their cheese is so damn good?

Sadly, Ben and I were the only two BWBers at Boskone last weekend, so I had a bunch of extra meats and cheeses that I had acquired for the Cards Against Humanity traditional Saturday time.  Which means I no share goat cheese tonight.

Also, this might be a deeper question rather than a small one, but why Hall and Oates, and not Oates and Hall?  It scans the same either way.

Goats cheese is fine, but that's about it. And pygmy goats are not assholes, they are a goddamn delight.

I love goats.  Never met a goat I didn't like. 

Today I opened my mailbox to find the Gwenifer Raymond CD and T-shirt I ordered had arrived.  Things are looking up.

I just read that flat earther Mad Mike Hughes died when his home made rocket, steam powered, crashed with him in it.

Garage door troubleshooting. 

My garage door opener was getting stuck about 20% of the way up.  Oddly, this only happens from around 10am to 2pm.  South facing, so something about the sun shine seems to be causing it.

After watching the door go up and down a bunch of times and getting stuck each time, it seemed unlikely based on where the shadow line was that that was triggering the safety sensor.  (And it occurs to me now that the safety sensor keeps the door from closing, not opening, so probably wasted about 20 minutes down that rabbit hole.)

The garage door is comprised of 4 panels, each with a roller on each side in the corresponding track. I think it's standard, but maybe done much differently outside of North America.  I noticed that when the door gets stuck, the weight of the top panel freezes the rollers.  At this point in the process the top panel is tipped inward as it starts to make the turn from vertical to horizontal.  Also this is just past where the bottom piece of track meets the curved part, so a bit of seam there.  So I hammered everything a bit towards the directions that seemed likely to be most beneficial.  No effect.

Looking at the motor, I saw a setting for open and closing force for the door.  Turned the open force setting up from near the minimum and near the maximum and now it's pulling through the sticky spot with no issues.

But why the fuck was it only getting stuck in the middle of the day?

This is probably not small, but Harvey Weinstein was found guilty on two counts, but not on the more serious 1st degree which carried a possible life sentence.

Pancake day is definitely my favourite religious day. 

How you have them?  

for me there are only 2 options, simple (lemon and sugar), or totally over the top (every sweet thing in the house).
