I had to be home for the window measurement guy. He went through the house and took exact measurements for the windows we're having installed. He said almost everything looked fine, but I would have to unbolt a post attached to the house (for one of the gates) so they can install the window. He also repeated what the sales guy said (take down all the blinds before they get there to speed up the process). I'm probably going to have to take down one of the floating shelves in the computer room, too.

My father-in-law came over (and brought his lawn mower and weed whacker) so I could mow my mass of weeds and couple of blades of grass. I mowed the front lawn and Dave handled the weed whacking in the front. Then, I did the back yard and then weed whacked next to all the fencing (and the side yard, too). While I was decimating the weeds, Dave hooked up our overflow rain barrel and shortened the pipe for our hose. Then, we went to lunch at Island's (good burgers) followed by a trip to Lowes (so I could pay my rent to them, again). Yeah, I bought a lawn mower so Dave won't have to lug his out to me, anymore. That was my day "off".

I dropped an empty 2 liter of Coke in the kitchen and Dart (our dog) attacked it. It was pretty damned funny, so I did it in the backyard and recorded it. The 2 liter bottle is almost as big as he is.

I got a call from my mother-in-law. She asked me out on a date (Mrs. splorp! was there to chaperone) to go see Rain, the Beatles tribute. Mrs. splorp!'s aunt joined us in Thousand Oaks. It was even more awesome than Mrs. splorp! getting carded! (;<

We went out to the Outback to enjoy their lobster tail special. Mrs. splorp! ordered a lemon drop and got carded! 'Twas awesome. Even better, the waitress said she would've carded me, too. w00t!

So, I took Mrs. splorp!'s car in for recall work. It was supposed to be a half-day job. They called me at 2:30pm to tell me it would have to come back in to have the service completed. I needed to take the shuttle back to the dealership, so they claimed to send it out. At 4:30pm, I called them back because the shuttle hadn't arrived.

"Um, let me check. ::hold:: OK, not sure why he isn't there, yet. I'll give him a call and make sure he picks you up."

Yeeeaaaahh... lying sack o' crap.

"They never told me to come pick you up." - the shuttle driver, when he finally got there.

Drusilla, the Vampire Parakeet To the left, you’ll see Drusilla,
the Vampire Parakeet, named after
a character on Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
because she bit like a vampire.
She passed away on 12/20/04.
