    No, the hell ships were in the Japanese navy...

    Or on the Heart of Gold, a drink that's almost, but not quite, entirely unlike tea

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I've been busily putting up blinds the last couple of weekends. I've now completed the main living area (two sets of double roller blinds - one sheer and one blockout on the same fixture, one set of vertical), the master bedroom (one sheer and one blockout roller blinds on separate fixtures) and the laundry (one blockout blind). Just have the second and third bedrooms to go (same as the master bedroom)... Second bedroom is due to get painted towards the end of the week. Curtains will come down before and blinds will go up after the painting is finished and dried. Third bedroom is my study/junk room. I'll do that one once I get enough cleared to get decent access to the window... So probably when I move out... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrBBqHg0wuc

    Yea, my lawn is tiny, and would probably be great for an electric mower if it weren't for some of my grass. I've got big patches of some kind of super stringy, super thick growing crap that just kills mowers. And if the lawn is wet? Oh man, that stuff even more killer. And since I live in the bottom of a valley, and I think there's a spring here too, my yard is always damp. I haven't had any issues cutting wet grass with mine. It's a 36V one - don't go for anything running on less voltage because they just don't have the grunt.

    One big advantage of my new lawn mower is that it's got a brushless electric motor. This means there's only one moving part (not counting the wheels and the trigger) and almost no way for it to seize up.

    Yeah, my Dyson was replacing a $100-ish one I'd had for about a decade. It was like night and day. I had the same situation with lawn mowers at about the same time. I had been using a cheap one and bought a new battery-powered one. And immediately donated the old one.

    I got myself a Dyson last year as a birthday present to myself (Black Friday sale happened to be around my birthday). I do not regret the decision at all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIsdMg8TkNU

    You know, I first read that with only one 'e' and two 'd's...

    The first time I visited SWMBO's family home, there were 12 of us between four bedrooms. 11 of them sharing three of the bedrooms (I was given a room to myself because I wasn't really family - we'd only been dating for less than a year and I hadn't proposed at that stage)... SWMBO insists I need to try durian. I'm not looking forward to it...

    Not only that, but it's less than half an hour until home time...

    21 August marks 12 years for me. Really enjoying having access to Long Service Leave as of two years ago.

    My "dad humour" is about that level too. I don't have any kids yet...

    You should try the board game of the same name. It's the best board game about making dresses that I've ever played...
