Our daughter is sick today - she woke us both up at around 3 a.m. crying and then threw up at about 4:15 or so. Seeing as her cousins just got over the stomach flu I’m betting that we’re being hit by it now. Wonderful. :-|

I found out that there’s a local hydroponics place within 20 minutes of me or so. That’s actually pretty cool so I think I’m going to check them out this weekend even if I don’t buy anything. There’s also another one about an hour away that has fairly inexpensive kits. I’m mildly surprised by this but I guess things are changing.

It’s liquid out today so the rest of the snow is almost gone. I hope it stays gone but I know that it’s only mid-February so I don’t have much hope of that.

Blech. I hate dreary days.


I better stop before I start composing emo poetry. :-/

At least things are moving along in the house. I managed to get the main carpet vacuumed last night and it was fine until my daughter “decorated” it early this morning near the bathroom. Now would be a good time to pull it up and see if there’s a real floor under it or not.

I think the aluminum cans are going out this week. I don’t have the time to save them and recycle them myself so they just have to go. Just like a number of other things I’ve got.

Dammit. Grey days make me want to eat truffle pie and it’s free pie day to-boot. *sigh*

*orders the pie*

Checked into it and I can’t use the twist-off Bawls bottles I have to brew beer with. They just won’t seal properly is what I’m hearing. However I’ve managed to get the Guinness “rocket” out of their bottles in less than a minute per bottle and those bottles are nice and heavy regular crown capped bottles.

The message here is obviously drink more Guinness. ^_^

It was something she ate...not the flu from her cousins. She didn't see them while they were sick on either end. And bring home some pie!!!

I brought home a whole brownie pie for you and you didn't eat any of it! ;-P

I *just* got this awful tummy plague Monday. Woke up, ground the coffee and the smell of it made me nauseated. Opened a can of dog food for Loki and totally lost it! Spent the rest of the day either in the head or in the bed.

All better now (mostly) but ooooooooo, poor baby.

Oof! Not good. :-(

I'm not prone to throwing up any more but it still happens every once in a while. It happened on Monday but I'm still trying to decide if it was nerves or something I ate or what. :-/

That's odd.. I just noticed today there's a hydroponics centre near where I live too...

For reusable beer bottles, Grolsch larger bottles are best. Although their larger is bloody awful.

There's another brand that uses those bottles as well but I can't recall which ones.

And I suppose I could use the Grolsch to make beer bread because...yeah...it sucks.

Mmm... it just seems that you should be able to get empty Guinness bottles for free somewhere... advertise in Craig's List perhaps?

Guinness drinkers might be happy to give them to you, rather than the recyclers.

I thought about cruising the streets on garbage day but I'm not sure how people would feel about that.

Hey! You just gave me a great idea! I could go to the recycling place and see if they'll sell me bottles for the cost of the bulk glass! That should be damn inexpensive. :-)

It's certainly worth asking. Or if there's a local restaurant that serves Guinness, they might not mind giving you some empties.
