Yeah, they turn up around here pretty cheap too; Himself only asks more money for ones that are extraordinary in some way - very large, or an obscure manufacturer, or extremely good condition. There's also a teeny-weeny one that I won't let him sell because it's so cute, but the travelling War of 1812 re-enactors would give him anything for it.

I told Himself that I was taking a walk down to the corner store, and he asked if I wanted company. I meant to say, "If you like," but my Freudian slipped and it came out as "If you must." Now he's wandering around the house, emoting: "OH I HAVE NEVER FELT SO LOVED!"

Working from home with a retired guy hanging around... it's not for the faint of heart, I'm here to tell you.

I love living in the future, but I think I would be a little happier if I didn't know that it's 20 degrees colder at my house than it is at McMurdo Station.

Made myself a flexi-loop orifice tool for the wheels with really narrow orifices (orifi?). Why didn't anyone tell me that making laminated turning blanks was so much fun?

After I mentioned in passing the other day that it might be handy to have a wee sled on the bandsaw, Himself toddled off and made me one. I thought the pivoting brake he came up with was quite clever. Now I can cut small things perfectly square  :)

This is the sort of thing the internet was made for: selling to the long tail. A good product that has a small niche, and would only succeed if you can reach a scattering of customers across a wide geographic area.
How laziness and iPhone separation anxiety led one 20-year-old on a quest to reimagine underwear.

I was head-banging along to this video when Himself pointed out that most of these songs came out more than 40 years ago: "Feel old now?" he said. THE SHEER EFFRONTERY of that man. Comments like that lead to men dying in their sleep if you catch my drift.
(Wait, does anyone say 'catch my drift' anymore? or did that go out with 'groovy'?)
See a group of seven to 12-year-olds perform an incredible medley of Led Zeppelin songs on xylophone and drums.
