Not A “Normal” Day At All

Started out with me taking SWMBO to her doctor’s appointment at the Naval Hospital and waiting around until about 1015 when she was pretty much done. I say pretty much cause I have to go back there tomorrow and pick up her meds for her. I turned my phone into a hot spot and played on the Internet for awhile. Walked around. Grabbed breakfast at the Subway in the basement. Walked around. You know; regular waiting stuff.


Dropped her off at the Ferry Landing and came on home via ACE Hardware (which is actually McLendon’s but used to be ACE). Had to get a hole drill thingie. To drill some holes.


Got my stuff moved back into “my” room. It’s pretty messy but not in the “final” configuration cause I just needed to get out of the living room. Drilled some holes in the top of the new counter tops (remember that hole drill thingie I got?) to put wires through. Computer is sitting on the counter top for now but will be mounted underneath when I make the brace I want to make. Did drill a hole through the walls to outside and put a length of pipe in and ran antenna wires through it to the radio and moved the 2-meter antenna to this side of the house; so I’m back on the air. Everything’s working as it should. I’m even impressed with that thing that does the network through the power lines; it seems to be working well.


Not much else going on around here. Kind of winding down. May have to run the MCARC 2-meter chat net tonight if KC7WNJ doesn’t show up. Payback for him running my net last Sunday.

I Couldn’t Believe It. Another Headache

About 2230 last night I went from feeling okay to a pounding headache in the space of 3 heartbeats. Strange. About 0130 I finally got up and got a bag of ice and froze my head. Didn’t seem to help until about 0530. Was gone when I got up at 0600. Thank Goodness!


So today I’m really watching what I eat and do. I don’t remember eating any of the “trigger” foods the last couple of days; so maybe it’s something new. Grapes? Egg Nog? Those are really the only “strange” things I’ve consumed. Maybe it’s the way I prop my head up when reading? I don’t know. So I’m not going to do any of those things tonight and see what happens. Maybe my Ex- is working her hoodoo.


Spent the day finishing the new counter tops in my radio/computer room. Those are in nice and solid. Moved my book case back into there and put all the stuff back on the shelves. Plugged in a couple of those network through the wiring things to try before running a long network cable across a couple of rooms again. (May work. May not. If my Internet slows down too much I’ll go back to cable.) Will move my computer and radio back in there tomorrow. Then I get to re-string some antenna’s.

Playing With Apophysis

Got a message that PFCU is STILL working on where the hell my payment to KFCU went. No projected resolution date. So I went to PFCU and had them stop payment on that check they supposedly mailed. They were going to charge me $30 to do that. No Way! So they cancelled the payment (at no cost to me) and it should be refunded in 2-3 days. Not waiting. They decided to cut a check to KFCU by overdrawing my checking account (at no cost to me as long as I remember not to use my checking account for a few days). Inconvenient but doable. Took the certified check straight to KFCU so, at last, my first Truck payment is in. Not exactly on time but not late billing wise. Has kind of put me off on “Bill Pay” through my bank though. I was NOT a happy camper.


Oh, my first thoughts this morning when I heard the brave Taliban attacked and killed a bunch of kids: Fuck the Taliban. Fuck all Muslims. Fuck Mohammed. Fuck Allah. Any belief that promotes killing kids needs to be wiped off the face of the Earth. If you Taliban Pussies want to take on someone, come see me and my friends. We’ll fuck you up so bad even your afterlife virgins won’t have anything to do with you.

MCARC 10-meter net went well but short tonight. Only 4 of us checked in. Ah well.
