    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Thirty seconds. Thirty elfing seconds. That’s the amount of time it took to get thru domestic airport security. So jelly.

    If @Glitterwolf isn’t thinking about us, he will in several days and that’s just as good. On on the road to Ikaho and just passed Dramatic Resort. I wonder if they are dramatic?

    All one time zone. And luckily I’m too tired to do math at all. But 15 hours ahead of Denver sounds right.

    Awake waaaaay too early for my flight. Currently at the diner for breakfast. Didn’t sleep well either. Woke up really hot and had to check the AC. Was just me. Then got five messages from the daughter waking me up ten minutes before the alarm was to sound. Still excited to to be going tho. And hope that my typing improves. The last week has been very trying as my fingers haven’t been hitting right where they should be.

    Luckily, the dryer dinged and I could put sheets back on the bed. Then went to the vet to drop off some paperwork but they were closed for a staff meeting. Headed to a cheesesteak place. Was thinking about having one last American meal before going to Asia, but decided Mexican food wouldn’t be nice to my fellow passengers.

    I’ve got a problem. I’ve run out of things that I can do on the pre-vacation to-do list. And before anybody suggests painting, know that the painting desk is populated in order to prevent feline intrusions and my nerves are shot. I could try to paint a house wall right now and would miss. Guess I’ll go clean something.

    Last day of work before I head off to meet up with the family in Japan. So of course, I get tagged for a two and a half hour presentation at 3pm. Really?! I hope I will be able to focus and not drift away.

    Yeah... mines a secret too! Yeah, that's the ticket. Yeah. In fact, mines soooo secret, I'm not entering it under my own name! Yeah, that's it! Right! I wouldn't be surprised if I even have someone else stand up and go claim the Sophie, too! Yeah! Definitely the ticket! *thoroughly ignores the unfinished and resignation of unfinished minis lurking behind him*

    Better one than mine. Magnetic entity is attracting all the metal nearby. Fence posts, mailboxes, etc. It grew stronger with every piece until it started ripping the iron out of people’s blood who got too close. Then people that were a little further away. Finally, it shifted the Earth’s core enough that it started banging into the mantel and turned the planet back into a molten lava world. Everybody died. TPK. Its been a long time since I had a nightmare, so it was a bit of a blow to my system.

    Yeah, you should grab a bingo card from me when you get there and work for blackout. Then you’ll have your safety net woven for you ! And I just panicked. I think I need to order more ribbons too.

    My Super Power

    My super power is luck. But only in places where it has as little of an effect on the universe as possible. Just enough milk for cereal. Just enough cereal for the bowl. Finish cutting the grass and put the lawn mower back in the shed, to then walk out of the shed in a glorious downpour (Sunday!). I always seem to just happen to get that lucky break when I need it. This manifests itself in other ways, that my wife interprets differently. She refers to it as my magical gaijin power, and it shows up in Japan a lot. It happens so often, she has come to rely on it. Rush hour on the trains? Let Darin pick the car to enter. It's empty and we all get a seat. Next stop gets packed with people tighter than canned sardines. Took a tour there and a stop was the tallest waterfall in Japan. Got there, and it was fogged in. Tour director shrugged his shoulders, and walked away to talk about other things. My wife looked at me, and I said to wait two minutes. Minute and a half, and all the fog drifts away, and suddenly people came rushing back to see. We had the prime spot, took our pictures, and I walked away. Two minutes later, fogged in again. I repeated this two more times for laughs since we had an hour at this one stop. This is especially prevalent in traffic. Bumper to bumper traffic, and I need to be two lanes over for an exit? Two cars to my right get distracted, don't pull forward, and I slide right in. I can always get "my place" on the streets regardless of traffic. Passing trucks on two lane highways is a breeze. It always seems to go my way. Except there's always a weakness. Superman has Kryptonite, Batman has parental flashbacks, Robin passes by a shop window with a really nice pair of leggings. It's always something. And I have mine. Traffic lights. I cannot get through them without having to stop at each one. Coworker didn't believe me, but drove him once to a different facility that I'd never been to, and he told me to drive X amount over the speed limit and we'd breeze straight thru the lights. Every. Single. One. We. Stopped. At. He was amazed, and had been checking my speed and found nothing amiss. So, incredible luck for mundane things, but thwarted by the red light!

    Got a lot done today. Fertilizer the lawn, painted (oils) more on some household artwork, hung paintings, fixed my daughter’s chest of drawers, got more beetle traps (amazing things! Beetle flew in before I could hang them up), and groceries. Rewarding myself with cheesesteak and fries.

    Wha tha... *gags* *swallows* Oh, hi Buglips. Should have smelt it was you.
  17. Click-n-ship shouldn't be an issue, that’s just their online package label thing where you print and apply postage to the package from home. The package is then ready to be dropped off at a retail counter, package slot, or get picked up by the carrier. Think of it as a package postage stamp (but don’t put stamps on the package). The scheduled pickup could be tricky, as it needs to be part of your regular mail carrier’s stop to deliver the regular mail. I was a bit worried about that, being an apartment, but went to fill out that form with an old address at an apartment... and they have a specific box for apartment number. Not sure if that counts as being out of their way, which would possibly entail a fee. But reading the FAQ on their website does say to indicate the location the package will be: mailbox, front door, knock on door, mail room, office, reception, etc (their examples). Easiest would be to leave it where the mail is usually picked up, if that’s some place secure.
  18. USPS click-n-ship, followed up by requesting a pickup that can be scheduled is probably your best bet if you’re struggling to make it to the PO. Abother option might be a local grocery store or Ace Hardware. Several around here offer USPS services at the customer service desk. ETA: Abother? Another. But... kind of amusing.

    Resigned myself to not having a ReaperCon entry this year. Just ran out of runway to do anything. The rest of July is away from paint?, and most of August too. Oh well, just have to start planning for the 2019 entry.

    So... she's gone? That's unfortunate. But, if its any consolation, its not like if you had even dropped everything and gone immediately that you'd have made it in time. In unrelated news, anybody going to be around Yuma Sept 12-14? Got a parachute drop test then and NASA is setting up a friends and family viewing area.

    Bleah. Long Monday was long. Had to call off crane operations because the electrical connectors that had been re-pinned a week ago needed to be re-pinned because they were wrong. Puppies are happy to see me, at least. Wife and kids... have been very quiet. Getting older and lots to do at Garndma’s I guess. They should be waking up soon.

    Velp, I tink I shall lower the grasses now. Then see about procuring some stores of nourishment for the coming days. Need to use up some of the things the wife left in the fridge. Some small peppers and some ginger. Thinking beef or chicken stir fry.

    Single life thought: does the frozen dinner's calories include all the sauce, as in would one have to lick the entire plastic tray clean to get the full amount, or are they allowed to assume some ullage***? ***Not the right word, but was the word that came to mind. I leave it only as a monument to knowing a word that spell check thinks is misspelled, but iddn't.
  24. Seven new pairs of shorts. Been awhile. Old ones are ... er, ... old and worn out.
