Big storm. Much rain. Socket in the garden has a loose cover. Socket gets power from same line as the garage. Line has a breaker on it. Guess what happened to power in the garage? The input box for the Verizon internet, tv, and phone resides in the garage. Guess whether that connectivity is working? Hint: There is now a long thick orange power cable running from said box into a socket in another room.
Daughter's taking a 'Japanese painting course'. Really likes it. Wants to get an 'ink stone and brush'. Uh, okay. They're about $25. Uh, what? But I figured I would wait and save my money until I get back from France. Good idea. Reduces the odds of actually remembering to get this to, oh, one out of three.
Just watched Doctor Who for the first time in decades. Nobody else could make marauding statues plausible. Quantum lock, you see. Beat that with a stick, Star Trek.
