Should have known Amazon would deliver to me late in the afternoon and gone out for a morning ride yesterday.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was JAUNT

  1. NYT Mini Crossword in 37 seconds.

    Heardle in the first second.

      Mini in 1:07 – I’m getting the hang of it – some bad typing across when I was trying to go down, or I might have broken 1 minute – maybe

  2. I guess the mythical Lidl is supposed to open today. I considered joining the madness, but now I will await the dying down of fanfare before I start shopping there.

    Nice cooler morning. Going for an early run and then I have WOW…women of the woods. :). If you were a woman, I’d say join us! My bike had a Little Rock stuck up in the derailleur! Go figure. At least your parts bike is still around for more rides.

  4. Barb says:

    Heardle – fail
    60s – I’m an idiot – totally knew the song but was convinced it was the Beach Boys.
    70s – I should have known it……
    80s #1 – again, could not come up with the name
    80s – took me all the way to the last chance (and I listened to a lot of that guy back in the day)
    90s & 00s – I so rately know the names or bands, but trying to increase my awareness.

    Morning! I did not do Wordle yesterday. The semester has started with a vengeance and I’m so irritated by all the people and lack of parking spaces. Just have to keep remembering that if they weren’t here, I wouldn’t have a job! They pay my salary…they pay my salary…they pay my salary.

    Mostly kidding. I love the excitement of the beginning of the year.

    Our less-than-three-year old fridge has decided to stop crap out. It doesn’t make ice but it freezes everything in the fridge. Kevin has always hated it, so we’re getting a new one. Needless to say (but I’ll say it anyway), I will NOT be ordering it from Lowe’s.

      *decided to crap out.

    • Barb says:

      Appliances seem to just suck anymore. So many things to break.
      Good luck.
      If you want to “maybe” spend a little more, go to a real appliance place – Howard Payne in Chamblee was awesome when we were trying to decide what stove to buy. I took a friend there to look at refrigerators – the salesman helped us figure out the differences between brands. She ended up buying somewhere else, but I’ll probably go back there next time we need something new.

      • Jenka says:

        Money is not an object in this situation. I would pay any amount of money to make Kevin STOP complaining about it. Good lord.

        Thanks for the Howard Payne rec! I will definitely check them out!

  6. In from pulling English and poison ivy off the pecan tree out front in an effort to keep it alive and standing. I have also taken a thorough shower using Fels Naphtha to try and reduce the risk of reaction to the poison ivy I was around.

    You know I spent over four days at Fort Mountain and didn’t get bitten by a single ant. I spent forty minutes out in my yard, nearly 100% covered in clothing, and a fucking ant nailed me twice on the neck! To be fair it’s the only action my neck has seen in many months…

    No stats or games today, maybe later. The Excel book gets uploaded to the printing company on August 26. The end is near.

    • Barb says:

      so, what’s next after this book is done?

      • David says:

        Primarily I’ll get back to trying to grow my little company that offers Excel training videos to college students. It’ll scale up nicely if I can get more universities to buy in. I have two presently, so it’s a start. That, and the 50 other things I tend to have my professional hand in. ADHD keeps me from having like just “one job”, but given how fickle the economy is, I’m glad to have multiple revenue streams.

    Good morning all.

    The day started with very little water pressure. Not good. Well pressure about 30 and didn’t come up when I shut off the rest of the plumbing. The filter was full, so I swapped that, then thought I better check the barn. Someone (not me this time) left the water running all night and I’m sure the pump was pissed and very hot. I’ll go check it again shortly. It was able to bring up the pressure, but not quickly. Maybe after it cools a bit.

    I had a presentation to do yesterday and thought it was just those in the room and a few more on Teams… apparently there were around 100 on the Teams session from all over the system! Glad I didn’t know that when I was being a smart ass.

    Games later.

    Wordle in 3 (woot!) Debbie did it in 5 (double woot!)

    Paulie, we’re meeting Katherine at George’s for lunch tomorrow if you’d like to join us. We’re moving in town for tonight and tomorrow night as tomorrow is the Chris Isaak concert at Symphony Hall.

  10. I am looking on Amazon about a book on bread baking. The Kindle version is priced $2 more than the hardcover version. This makes no sense to me!

    • David says:

      The paper copy is taking up space in the warehouse, they’re trying to move it. Plus I think lots of people like e-books and won’t want a paper copy around, so they know they can charge for it. Kind of like how hard cover books are prices so high to fleece the early readers, and then a few months later the paperback comes out for people that don’t want to pay that much for the book.

      Capitalism at work.
