For +Jason Kowing 

It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of of the bean that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, the stains become a warning. It is by coffee alone I set my mind in motion.

It's been a long, long, time since I've seen anything better suited to Yakkity Sax.

Dunno if she was insane, figured she was busted no matter what, or both.  In any case, wow.

Managed to get the first coat of paint on the bathroom walls today.  Go me for actually getting something done!  I might even get the second coat on this evening, but I'm not holding my breath :P

If you're interested, the color is this: http://www.valsparpaint.com/en/explore-colors/painter/color-selector.html?colors=VR021D but it's a shade or two darker, at least from how it looks on my monitor.

I got mad decorating skills, yo.

Glad you approve +Dion V :)

Youtube ProTip:

If you want to queue a YouTube clip to a specific point, add "&t=1m5s" or whatever to the end of the URL, where "1m" is the number of minutes, and "5s" is the number of seconds.  Thus, "&t=1m5s" (without the quotes) starts the clip one minute, five seconds in.

It's not that uncommon, particularly with movies, where I want a specific scene, and only a larger chunk is available.  It comes in handy sometimes :)

Caught Her Highness Fluffy Bob Le Bond pulling at the fence (again) that we use to keep them in the living room, where it's fairly bunny-proof.

She's not 8 months old yet, but I'm starting to wonder....

sigh after all that, and a ton of elbow grease, I can't finish installing the sink  because I have the wrong hoses.  But, what's one more trip to the hardware store between friends, right?

At least I got the bit where I had to shut off the water to the house done when no one was here.

+Erik Hirner this is a record for me.  I swear everything in that room is just slightly non-standard.

+Lawrence Hults II we have a super-awesome ACE near us.  Unless I have to stop on the way home, I go there first.  If nothing else, I can usually get everything I need without finding one of the electric trolleys :P  (plus the staff is helpful, sometimes to a fault)

Want to push my buttons?

Tell me that people shouldn't do self-exams for early cancer detection.  

Ladies, check yourself out, once a month about one week after the start of your period.

Gents, pick a day and check out your nads.  Check your your moobs too, because guys can get breast cancer too, but no one checks.

All y'all, if something seems funky, tell your doc.  That saved my wife's life, and it could save yours.  Plus, finding something before you're symptomatic is infinitely better than waiting - waiting may well be too late.

And yeah, I don't fucking care what the NIH says.  Yes, it can mean stress and false-positives.  On the other hand, self-exams almost certainly saved my wife's life, and I know she has several friends where doing so would have made treatment so much easier.

I'm not asking you to share this, +1 it, or whatever.  Just tell your friends if/when it's appropriate.

Granted, it's been 10+ years since I ate there, but it's still something we talk about. The setting is gorgeous, the food phenomenal, the experience memorable - put it this way, if I were anywhere near, I'd go well out of my way for dinner. By memorable, I texted my ex earlier today, making sure I was right that we'd actually stayed in Kobern-Gondorf, and her response was "yes, remember that restaurant?" And her mom, who'd told us about it took my son to Germany over the summer and that was a 'must stop'. She reported that it was as wonderful as ever. I can't speak to the hotel, but based on the restaurant staff, I would try to book a room there before I tried any other +place as well.

Overpriced, over-condimented and poorly cooked. Basically, $13 gets you an admittedly large fish taco, but its so smothered in veggies, refried beans, and what tastes like picante sauce made in New York City that you'd be better off eating, well, anywhere else. If you do manage to find a piece of fish in all that, you'll the so-called "grilled" option resembles sad, gray lumps that would make the former (Ahi the day we were there) owners of the flesh spin in their watery graves. Two stars because the portions of whatever it us they served us were large, and still not as bad as Taco Bell (though not by much)

You know what they say about Army Depots - unexploded ordinance, chemicals with funny names that will melt your brain, stuff that glows in the dark... Well, the Sacramento Army Depot was closed in 1995, and was designated a Superfund site in 1987. What does that mean? Well for SAAD, it means that the dirt is clean and most of the nasty chemicals have been removed from the groundwater - save a few places but as of the US EPA evaluation in 2012 it seems the groundwater mitigation will be done soon too. So, 4 stars out of 5 for reducing (if not virtually eliminating) the chance of a Zombie Apocalypse starting there.

Fresh fish and a friendly staff. Oh, and phenomenal rolls. I swear I'm addicted to the barbecued albacore though. One caveat - Thursday nights are $1 sake nights. The service can be slow because it can be crazy busy.

Awesome coffee, both on premises and take-home beans. Plan to end up taking home a couple of pounds.

Shige has to be one of the best sushi places in the Sac Metro area. Unlike the loud, sports-bar atmosphere of Mikuni's, the atmosphere is subdued, and much more an atmosphere dedicated to people that are serious about fish. The staff, from the waitpersons that run the tables to whichever chef is working, are always courteous and helpful - we've even had several nights where we've sat at the bar, and the chef has made up rolls on the fly to suit our whims. The fish itself, is exemplary. Always perfectly fresh and delicate. If you need your sashimi fix, you won't go wrong. I also highly recommend the monkfish liver appetizer - we've been known to make the trek over there sometimes just for that. All in all, I consider it a must try.
