...that i can mash the button on the jeep's clicker for five minutes and it will not unlock for anything, but i can then hand it to Sheri and she'll push the button once and, click, it works...???
Research is currently underway to determine if this is also related to the Pickle Jar Phenomenon.
And now, the news (in no particular order):
Getting new tires on the jeep tomorrow. Yay rah exciting, i know, but it needs done.
We played catch in our backyard today. This seems random, and it is, but Sheri had been saying for a couple years that we should get some ball gloves and baseball and play catch because it would be fun. We had a couple of walmart gift cards, and it seemed an amusing thing to spend them on.
I think the last of Hikaru's current computer problems has been isolated and (somewhat) solved. I love my computers... ...when they work.
Had a great time jamming at the Hippie Hut yesterday. I think we're still one band member short, but it's going pretty well.
Continuing to go over the Mouse Guard rules and trying to get one of the current D&D story arcs wrapped up so i can put it on the back burner for a while in the interest of something new.
Been looking over some camera lenses and reviews of them. I know i want a long telephoto, a super-wide-angle and a wide-aperture prime (probably 50mm), but i keep going back-and-forth regarding exactly which ones i'm after. Oh well, i've got time.
Had a going away party for Ginger last weekend - which she almost missed ;). I think we had a dozen people or so. I took a few pictures - but didn't get too many before my flash batteries died. I hadn't thought about bringing the camera until right before we left and at that point i didn't have time to charge them. Anyway, we had a bit of a cookout and then sat around and talked for a good while. Later we played a game of Apples to Apples, which is always fun. It was a good time. We're going to miss Ginger a lot. :(
One band member short? Helloooo... power trio? Anyway, we have time to see if Josh still wants to play or find another possibility. Might need to include another diminutive friend of Mahto's...
Power trio? Ok, which one of us is switching to bass? :p I can, but then that leaves you with lead vocals... Josh is awesome. Too bad he's under-equipped atm...
Mahto is hoping to get a new bass amp in the near future. Maybe we can let Josh play on it as well... I may be going out to dinner with him next weekend. We might be able to make it a 'band practice' before grabbing food?
Dunno. Next weekend is also Ginger's moving weekend. Not sure on all the times, etc, but we'll probably be helping with that... ...but if it worked out, it'd be cool.
