Randomness XVIII: Ex-Vee-Triple-Eye


Recommended Posts

I got my second shot this morning and the nurse literally hit a nerve during the injection. <_<

I'm mostly tired and grumpy. I didn't sleep very much today, thankfully I already took the night off. I'm going to call out in the morning so I can get some hobby stuff done. Don't tell my boss. :ph34r:

Some additional trivia to go with your trivia:

The USS George Washington was was 1 of 4 ships to carry that name, and the first to be purpose built as a warship.

The first was purchased in 1798 and was originally  merchant ship.

The second was a German passenger liner that was converted to a troop carrier during WW1.

The third was the submarine.

The fourth (and current) one is a nuclear powered aircraft carrier.

Had a meeting with a back surgeon today.  Looks like the inevitable has finally come, so I'll be looking at getting scheduled for back surgery, probably late fall or winter from the sounds of it.  

Posterior spinal fusion of L4-L5-S1.

 

It took two surgeries (the first time they cut away some bone), but after my mom's lumbar fusion she has been remarkably free of pain.  Even pain that doesn't really come from her back.  But that's not always to the case so I hope your surgery gives the same relief  as hers.

I kinda enjoy auctions. My dad always tries to make me go to them to do his (literal) bidding because I'm big and hairy and he thinks my big dumb stubborn countenance encourages people to quit bidding more quickly than they do with him.

 

Good to be good for something, I suppose. 🙃

Well, to each his own, I suppose... And those traits do play well to the auctioning arena. Good on you!

 

You weirdo.

I’m exhausted and upset. Start of vacation, after a six hour drive, and I cannot get the tablet to connect to the wifi. The solutions online are repetitive and none of them work. I remember it was something super simple last time but for the life of me I cannot remember what it was. Works fine on the home wifi.

 I have come to accept that as a 5'11" man with a neck larger than some folks' legs, my purpose in life is to reach for the high things and carry the heavy things.

I kind of wish eBay auctions involved posting pictures of the bidders - I have what might might generously be referred to as "resting axe murderer face"... :grr:  ::D:

I've only ever been to a couple of live auctions, but I tend to do well -  I've won staring contests with the laws of physics before, so mere mortals tend to flinch once my glacial stare of inevitable doom starts to cause ice crystals to form in the air around them.

Thanks for that, but I need to be connected to some network first for those to work (but I did try just in case. It’s able to see lots of networks, but unable to even initiate even a “no internet” connection. On normal hotels, I can usually connect but have no access which popping open the browser and going to a website usually breaks the logjam and things can progress password wise. In the current case, it simply says it cannot connect. Dead stop. Hmm. Cobwebs starting to fall. Think it has the same problem as inflight entertainment issues. Gonna try that this evening.

Been listening to The HU from Mongolia, their Yuve Yuve Yu song is just awesome.  Hubby just bought their full album.  If you like metal, check them out!


Yup! Really cool sound, but really disliked the collaboration with English speaking singers. Those didn’t make the playlist. 
 

Be sure to check out their videos on YouTube. Makes me want to get a horse fiddle.
