Bench presses
Morning watch, 6 bells (7:12 am)

MP and I finally hit 4 sets of 15 reps of our current weight (150) yesterday. I think we'll do it one more time, then add weight again. After weightlifing, we played more racquetball, but since last Friday, my left foot has been hurting, so I went easy on it. MP and I played almost a whole game, dogging eachother as usual pointwise, until DD showed up and asked if we'd play him after our game. We just invited him to join us on the spot for cutthroat, since that's what we were looking for in the first place. We played 2 more games (I didn't win any because I was going easy on my foot, but I'm quite sure I would have otherwise).

Appliance Repair
Morning watch, 6 bells (7:08 am)

I juggled this one between Things that are Cool and Things that are Not Cool, but finally decided it wasn't cool. "Why isn't the Samurai Appliance Repair Man cool," you might ask? Well, let me tell you:

It all comes down to one simple principle. Some people just shouldn't be let on the internet. Freaks, weirdos, and those that haven't got enough good sense to know what they're doing or even why they need to be on the internet. Apart from that, those that have way too much time on their hands really should avoid authoring HTML documents.

Okay, I'll admit it. The site is kind of funny. He runs The Samurai School of Appliantology, but in no way advocates the type of technical adjustments I thought he would—things such as the technician's tap, or just plain running your sword through the washer.

Overall, I give the site an F+. F for the expected but barely-there humor, + for the usability of the online repair manuals and links to appliance repair sites, which I'll never visit...
