Absolutely Useless Facts About Yourself, No One Cares About

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

I worked the graveyard shift last night. I got home at 0530. I had a splash of Highland whiskey and was asleep at 0600. Then up at 0930 and back at work at 1045. I got off at 1415 then home to tear out our kitchen and dining room floor.


Hello FredS
A real man of leisure.





Hahahaahaa, I keed I keed
Imagine what I could accomplish if I wasn’t so lazy.


Hello FredS
A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest..
Maybe next weekend.

I've learned some things about some neighbors that I wish I hadn't learned.

I learned that I have neighbors. I share your discontent.

That's "Clippy" from Microsoft Office's office assistant feature. Hopefully your supervisor was less annoying and far more useful.

Tomorrow morning is the neighborhood pick up. My neighbors from around the corner are in the County so no pick up for them.
The cut down a bunch of Pear trees and their gardener put them on my pile but they dragged them across my gorilla hair (so now I have a bald gorilla)
and didn't cut the wood down to 4' max length which they need to be or they won't get picked up.
So I fired up the Stihl and cut every branch & trunk that's visible to 4'

I still don't know what to do about the gorilla hair :evil:

I have had only 12 ounces of soft drink in the past three weeks. I have been drinking gatorade and peeing every 2 hours.
