Leaf blowers are the ideal guy tool, because they have engines, they're loud, and they enable you to blast debris, ray-gun-style, from one place to another without having to actually pick it up. I'm willing to bet that somewhere in America, there's a guy who, at least once, cleaned his living room by firing up his leaf blower indoors and blasting everything -- pizza boxes, beer cans, ancient potato-chip shards, underwear, deceased spiders -- into a less-critical area, such as the dining room. (This guy is not married.)

Last Night Out
Posted in General
Forenoon watch, 5 bells (10:32 am)

L and I went and saw Big Fish, it was an excellent movie, and I really enjoyed it. We went to dinner first at the Olive Garden, near the AMC Theatre in Spokane. The wait was a bit long, but they gave us a pager and we walked around upstairs and looked through the window at the sculpture gallery for a while. Just as we started exploring a little further away, it started going off. We had a nice dinner, and were just in time for the previews to start. It was a great movie.

Afterwards, I drove her home and ended up talking for over an hour, until she realized it was 1:30am. I had to get up at 6 this morning to finish this server stuff, so we called it a night. I got to bed about 2am, so I'm running a little low on sleep today, but otherwise have no problem functioning normally. I'm relieved that all my backups are intact, the server restoration process is going very smooth now. Just got a little software configuration to finish and I'll be done, then on to the dozen laptops I have to get back out and work on again. I'm such a lucky guy.

Yesterday’s Game
Forenoon watch, 4 bells (10:24 am)

MP and I played 3 games yesterday, I took him for 2 of them, but we had some excellent volleys going. We both worked real hard to make points and keep up. It was a lot of fun, though, and was really necessary, we haven't been hitting it very hard lately.
