I don't think it's so bad, and I agree that it can be difficult to get god boxes (good boxes you can pay for).

Thanks Mack. I even proof read that! Generally, my issue is that my fingers type faster than my eyes follow.

LTTMMH: Imagining from what sort of store one would obtain god boxes.

Do the boxes come containing a god? or does one have to find one's own god to put into them, and they're special post office boxes meant to be used for shipping said god to somebody else?

Maybe they're only made by a god. -- but there are plenty of people who think that God made everything. So all the boxes are already god boxes!

And why does God need a box?

To put the devil in.

LTTMMH: my blood test showed all liver chemicals (and function) are 100% back to normal.

I just made a new music station for myself on Pandora. I used artists like Enigma, Ray Lynch, Kitaro, Enya, and Yanni.

I named it... Music From Some Guys in Space...

I was just wondering where god boxes come from, and what should be put in them? Then it occurred to me that, perhps you should capitalize it. Seeing as it's, you know, God and all.

Tomorrow I go back to DragonCon to act in an ARTC play. I'm happy my part lasts only 30 seconds.

I did this today:



It took about 20 minutes of scrubbing with Barkeeper's Friend. Literally nothing else worked. It saved my tub. I am so happy.

(Note: this was not my crud. This was the funk and gunk from the previous occupants. You do not want to know what was clogging the drain.)

Cool September morning breezes and a house that can be opened up to get fresh air and minimal neighborhood noise (unlike my old place.)

I just realized that today is the anniversary of the date I submitted my resignation to a toxic job that was robbing me of the will to live. Life may not have gone perfectly for me since that day but I will never be as miserable again as I was then. Never, did you hear that deity whose existence I doubt? Never!!

Maybe it's a deus ex machina.

LTTMMH: I fixed shish-ka-bobs this past weekend and boy were they good!

Looks like the residue of previously installed no slip strips. They were glued down and that is the left over glue.

Plus all the gunk, funk and crud that had adhered to the glue since the strips went away.

That's what I thought - and probably a solvent like WD-40 or vegetable oil applied and allowed to soak a bit would have made the job easier.

The Atlanta Radio Theatre play I was in played to a big house at DragonCon, and that made me happy.

The commute into and out of downtown Atlanta, however, sucked a good deal of the joy out of the experience.
