So I’m considering adding the RPG/400 programming language to my skills because it’s an in-demand skill on a regular basis. Even though I’m trying to reduce spending I ordered three books today from E-Bay and Amazon to the tune of $30 total. But even with the books unless I can find an AS400 emulator or pick up a system somewhere cheap that’s going to be an issue. I turned down one years ago because of space so there’s that bit of suckage involved in this as well. :-(

The paver molds came in yesterday and it looks like it will fit the sidewalks of the house just fine. The round butterfly mold looks nice and crisp as well so those should come out nice.

It’s supposed to be in the 50’s tomorrow so I think as long as it’s not raining or something I’ll ride the bike to work. That should lift my spirits a bit.

Got all the dishes done last night so I won’t have to do that when I get home so maybe I can get the floor in there mopped. It really needs it.


The words aren’t flowing well today - partly because I went to bed at 12:45 a.m. and partly because I woke up to get a drink of water at 1:45 a.m. then had to get back up at 5 a.m. Thus very tired at the moment.

At least I managed to remember to take my 5-HTP this morning...

We’ll probably buy the Wii Fit thing this week if we can find one. Worse comes to worse I can always order one online but it might take a while to get here. From what I’m hearing via friends/coworkers who already have it they like it and it kicks their ass. We’ll see...

I’ve been pondering tearing apart the walls out in the garage to see if they’re properly insulated. I think the walls are fine and it’s just the roof and weather seals that need to be taken care of this spring. I do know that I have to buy a bunch of steel to weld up a lumber rack for my truck so I can start collecting bar stock crates from work without having to cut them in half.

That reminds me - I need to call our former neighbors tomorrow and see if it’s okay for me to pick up the deck wood since it’s going to be nice and warm. I really need to get that done if he still has it as it’s the wood for my garden fence. Maybe I’ll call him after lunch.

Hopefully my neighbor’s motherboard will show up soon so I can go back to working in the garage undisturbed. Not that he still won’t stop by to talk but at least I won’t have to worry about him not having his computer yet. And I think I’ve figured out a way to explain to him how his stereo could be ruining his computer.

Regardless the universe is still blowing large hairy rancid goat testicles in my area. But I’m trying to improve that...
