And to think it was snow & ice Gas was scared of. Don't forget to take pictures after turning his new house into a slippy slidy obstacle course.
It will be the Dawn of a new day.

Also I know the term "ferretorium" was suggested, but I would like to also suggest "dook nook" for consideration.

I've always thought bone broth and stock were synonymous and I've ever heard anyone say they weren't meant to be until now.

Avocado toast is not guacamole though. The avocados are sliced and placed on the toast, guacamole is mashed up avocado.

I'm overall exhausted. Besides my usual shit, the last week my work has been preparing for a major audit tomorrow including making everyone come in this last Sunday to do a deep clean of the entire facility. I'm ready for this week to be done and it's only started.

"Oh hey, you know how we said that the audit was on Tuesday? Our bad, we meant 'for the rest of the week'. Now here's thirty more last minute items we need you to get done right now."
. . . yay . . .

FirstAlerts are kinda crap. They're supposed to have a 10 year warranty, and I've had to replace 2 of them in the 6 years I've owned the house. At least the replacements were free.

This discussion reminds me that I haven't seen a TV commercial (or even a preroll ad) for smoke detectors for a long time. I wonder if they're still like, "See this sleeping family? See the smoke coming around the corner? If they didn't have this smoke detector, they would <HVYMTLVOIC>DIIIIIIEEEEEEEE!!!</HVYMTLVOIC>"

Very mildly NSFW.

Don't you just hate it when you find a porn comic that has awesome art but the plot pisses you off so much you can't enjoy the comic properly?

I've had a that issue with a few comics in general over the years. And the inverse, too.

Welp, car is in the shop. Hopefully the extent of damage isn't over the top.

Yes, I just outed myself from a few pages ago. I never found the [expletive] who ran off after the accident. And it was RIGHT IN FRONT of my workplace, too.

I'm going to try extending an olive branch to my dad today and I'm not looking forward to it. If he can't be better, there's no point seeing him when we go to New York, because Julie will just Hulk out at him and I wouldn't try to stop her.

Also our building's water has been shut off mysteriously. Hrrrm.

Dad didn't answer phone, but the water's back!

This trundle bed is going to be the death of me.
Open trundle bed.
Lay down a moving blanket on it (to cover the wires/springs).
Lay a cheap air mattress atop the moving blanket.
Put your regular crappy mattress atop the air mattress.
Sleep as normal.

'swhat we did until we could get a proper bed, the hard part was keeping the one cat from trying to shred the air mattress (since it was where she could reach).

That's not quite it. I'm still sleeping in my own bed, but my grandfather said he'd give me another bed for my new guest room.

Well, turns out this "extra bed" he had was a trundle bed.

My mother's trundle bed from when she was a teenager, in 1975.

So basically it's been in my grandfather's shed for 40+ years.

And boy oh boy is it rusty. I spent a great deal of the past weekend, and yesterday evening, and this evening, going at the darn thing with a wire brush bit in a power drill, scrubbing and blasting off 40 years of rust. I've gotten the top part done and repainted, and moved into the house, but the "lower" part, the trundle itself, is a lot more complicated with a lot more nooks and crannies (and even more springs because it's got a spring-loaded scissor mechanism to raise the trundle up to normal-bed-level height when pulled out from under the other one), and it's taking a lot longer and is a lot harder to get to everything, and I'm just positively worn out from all the spraying and sanding and scrubbing and spraying and wiping and....

But hey, at least the top part looks halfway decent now. Maybe I'll have the trundle done by the weekend. Thank goodness today it finally stopped being 100 degrees.



But either way, there's no way I'm bringing these mattresses into the house. They also look to be 1975 originals... and they have rust stains and (probably) massive spider colonies or something.
