Sugar High City

A friend of mine had the idea for this song rattling around his brain so he asked me to write it:

Sugar High City
(TTTO - Suffragette City by David Bowie)
======
(oh man) throw me a bone y'know
(oh man) I'm totally zoned y'know
(oh man) My heart's fast apace.
This sugar rush high puts a smile on my face

(oh man) I'm glucose insane
(oh man) Carmel filled veins
(oh man) I ate a case of Zagnuts
The doctor said to stop it but he...and then he...

Oh don't harsh on me man, cause you can't afford to match it
I'm in Sugar High City
Oh don't harsh on me man
Cause you ain't got my resistance
To the Sugar High City
I'll eat tonight...take big bites

(oh man) Oh Henry bars, stick right in my teeth, no way
(oh man) The chocolate, and nuts underneath, oh hey
(oh man) No rice cakes here
Just the sugar on my tongue here it comes, here it comes

Oh don't harsh on me man, cause you can't afford to match it
I'm in Sugar High City
Oh don't harsh on me man
Cause you ain't got my resistance
To the Sugar High City
I'll eat tonight...take big bites

Oh Henry!

Oh don't harsh on me man, cause you can't afford to match it
I'm in Sugar High City
Oh don't harsh on me man
Cause you ain't got my resistance
To the Sugar High City
Don't harsh on me man, cause you can't afford to match it
I'm in Sugar High City
Oh don't harsh on me man
Cause you ain't got my resistance
To the Sugar High City
I'll eat tonight...take big bites

A Sugar High City, a Sugar High City
I'm in the Sugar High City, totally Sugar High City
Ooo, Sugar High City, ooo, Sugar High City
Oooh-now, Sugar High City, oooh-now, Sugar High,

Ohhh, wham bam Candy-Gram!
A Sugar High City, a Sugar High City
I'm high tonight
A Sugar High City
All mine
A Sugar High City, ooh, a Sugar High City
Oh, my Sugar High City, oh my Sugar High City
Oh, Sugar High
Sugar High!

So I failed to get things done yesterday. Among them purchasing my scroll saw. No big deal there I can try again in a month or so. And I’ve been spending too much money anyway. Especially on repair parts and house stuff recently.

I’m really trying to cut back but there’s just a bunch of stuff we need. Hopefully though I can move the list offline and merge it with my wife’s list of things so that we can buy them onesey-twosey. Between the two of us we are once again spending too much. This time it’s my fault but there have been other times where it’s her fault. Truth be told be _both_ need to be better about it.

I’m hoping like hell that the parts for repairing one vehicle or another come in today so I can get started in that area. I’m hoping that the problem I’m experiencing with the bike isn’t the shifter fork but quick diagnostics lead me to believe that’s not the case as it will indicate that it has changed gears and act like it but still has the serious drivetrain power problem.

Bought 50’ of soaker hose yesterday. I’m going to run that in-between the rows in the garden so I can water easier. I’m going to have to do some experiments to find out what is the optimum length of time to run it for. But then once I know that I can work out some sort of control to make it automatic.

I’d love to set up a control system that reads things like the current soil moisture, temp, humidity, and rain. That way it would be able to be set to water or not water according to local soil and weather conditions. But that’s a ways off. I might settle for the valve and timer set that I saw at Costco yesterday as it appeared to be fairly useful. I’m kind of wondering if I can adapt the valves from that system to do what I want but that requires time and money I don’t currently have.

I have to mow when I get home today...
