Second Verse, Same as the First

Still varnishing, did case number two tonight. Two to go. Went to Home Depot to look at 1x3 maple for the face frame, and was massively disappointed with what they had in stock. Knotty, warped, and some of the pieces didn't even have a rectangular cross-section. Really crappy stuff considering that they want $1.16 a linear foot for it. That may not sound like a lot, but it adds up quick. I need four 8' lengths for the uprights, an 11' length for the header, and about 36' to do the edging on the shelves, which all adds up to seventy-nine linear feet, or $92 plus tax.

I still want to cluestick Harriet, and the cryptography bit is weak, but Bunter gets to do a lot more than usual, and I like the way the mystery unravels. Plus, the villains were both in Star Wars.

Hah! I'm listening to tracks at random on WinAmp, and "Cherish" just started playing, which is really funny if you happened to read Bitches this afternoon. Well it's funny to me, anyway.

  • We're Having a Heat Wave...

    For the first time in what has been an extraordinarily temperate summer, the temperature has broken 90° here at Casa Machina. We are the midst of…
