Went to a city 37 miles away to pick up a special bit for my router in order to clean and level the surfaces of some wood I glued up for a tool chest I'm building. Worked a treat. Next are some rabbets and dadoes.

Watching football and drinking slushy spicy bloody Mary's. I think I need to buy some reusable straws. The cocktail is thick enough that it doesn't really flow when you tip the glass. So I'm using a spoon.

I was at Trader Joe's this afternoon, and while I hadn't planned on going to Trader Joe's, much less their liquor store adjacent to the grocery store, I wanted to check their price on sweet potato fries before going to Whole Foods, and it was on the way. I'd been interested in Trader Joe's house brand beers, as they're less expensive. So I stopped in on the way to the grocery store just to price their house brand beers. I found out at that time that Trader Joe's let's you buy single bottles or cans of beer for roughly the same as you'd buy a 6 or 12 pack, only divided the appropriate amount. So I loaded up a can or bottle of basically all the beers they carry, except for the expensive ones and most of the IPAs. I had zeroed out my alcohol budget for the month, but the opportunity was too good to pass up, so I used about $40 of my Saturday plasma donation buying a 20-30 beer sampler case.

Back from a dinner party at Fidel's, a Mexican restaurant in North County. Very uneven flooring and surrounding pavement, making it hard to ambulate (harder because one of my crutcheshas a lot of padding due to my elbow pressure sore). Two chicken tacos and a slice of chocolate cake.

One of my cousins came over with his latest acquisition in his lifelong obsession with crocodilians, a Gavialis gangeticus, the Indian gharial. I asked him how he got a import license and he looked at me with a completely blank expression. (That is not exactly diagnostic with him.)

Nailed up two more rows of ceiling boards in the office. Procrastinating about the dishes in the sink from Thanksgiving dinner, and feeling an urge to just go out somewhere for a change of scenery.

Angry  Made an error in the setup for cutting some wood and fucked it up. We'll see if I can approach it with a calm mind tomorrow or just throw those pieces out use them for something else and make new. SHIT.

On the light rail headed home. I had a couple of libraries to visit, and Cub Foods had a sale on apple juice and salty snacks -- potato chips, pretzels, store brand nacho chips, etc. Yesterday I left the game at halftime and didn't get done at the bank and the grocery store in time to see the last bits of the game, so I torrented it last night and I'll watch it when I get home. I already know the general result as I was a few blocks away from the stadium right after the game let out, and I could tell from the mood of fans leaving the game. So far I've managed to avoid learning the final score though, so it should still be fun to watch.

ARGH!
Hope the wood is also closer than 37 miles away Smile
I have my shoulder surgery scheduled for late December. We got out of town early and had a nice drive back home. I'll post up a flurry of pictures later.
I opted to dump the trailer tanks tomorrow, as I won't have to work till Wednesday. Backed the truck out of the way. Doing a load of laundry, mostly the cotton sheets from the RV. We installed the flannel ones for winter.  Snore

The wood is less than 37 miles, thankfully. One was the back of the box which is BB ply. I have more of that. I'll probably just rout out more material and scab in some thin strips in the chest sides. Set up the router and then moved toward, instead of away from the fence for the second pass.  Dodgy iI I had a 12mm router bit, I'd've been home free, since I would have cut it in one pass. The part that is mutilated is hidden when the front lid is on, and hidden when the lid is slid into that compartment. Irritating, nonetheless.

I'm going through closets and getting rid of redundant or unnecessary clothes.  
Last night I pulled out a white dress shirt still in the plastic from the cleaner's shop.
The date on it was March 26, 2007.

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it.

Just got home from more shopping. This weekend Aldi's had these 2 bushel, wheeled hampers with a pop-up handle for $10. I've been needing additional hampers, and had a cheap $3 one from Walmart, but I liked these much better. I only really had money for one, and they had about 20, so I figured I'd come back if I need another one. Yesterday I realized I needed two more, but I was still waiting on the money to square up, as some pending charges and refunds hadn't posted yet. Well this morning they did, and I had money for the two more, so I headed to Aldi's bright and early. I get to the store, and they have three left, stacked one inside the other. So I grab the top two and proceed to make a quick tour to see if there are any markdowns I want to take advantage of. While I'm putting something in the hamper, using it as my cart, I decide to check the bottom one of the two I grabbed to make sure there are no hidden defects. So I grab the handle and pull up, and the handle comes off in my hand. After some brief inspection, I realized it hadn't just come loose but was broken. So I went back and got the other one. Just by sheer luck I got the last two good ones they had. It's possible they might have had more at another store. It's possible they might not. Apparently they sold well. I'm glad I got the good ones and didn't need to worry any further about it.

The person who manages the medicaid waiver which pays for additional services that I need due to handicap and illness is coming at 1:00 to do her annual assessment. Then I'm headed to Brooklyn center with my hand dolly to truck a wide, 3 drawer plastic storage cart a mile from the store to the bus stop, and then across 4-5 different buses and/or trains. Hot spit. Oh well, my annual apartment inspection is tomorrow, and the only remaining thing that has to be done is to mop the kitchen floor. I'm good.
