Happy July! June’s Daily Photos are up to date and wrapped. Check back later today for the new July gallery.
I would also like to wish a Happy Anniversary to my sweet lady, Pancake Land. Today marks the day five years ago when we first made out in my bathroom at a party. Happy Anniversary sweet baby.
So, of course Le Duke’s plane was late. 9:55pm quickly turned into 11:30pm, then of course there is still the waiting for luggage that never showed up and the drive home. I managed to get in bed about 12:30am. By the time I fell asleep, and adjusting for the fact that my alarm has recently decided to go off at 5:40am, I got right around five hours of sleep before my chem final. At this point I don’t care. I just want to be done with it. I am going to cut out a little early to go review some more, just warning you now.
So, I had relative success yesterday getting the smell out of the car, thanks to all the help I got from Back Alley Trey and Bubba Fett. It doesn’t really smell like gas anymore, but there is definitely a smell. A chemical smell. It is not overpowering just as long as there is air coming from somewhere. I got the battery changed out as well. Luckily, the old battery was over five years old, so I didn’t so much kill it, as I eased it into the afterlife. Nudged it over the edge, if you will. I also discovered that the spare tire had melted itself to the floor of the trunk. This is particularly good information to find out at the house, rather than on the side of the road somewhere. Once we got the melted tire loose from the trunk, there were big patches of rubber missing from it. That tire would have last about thirty seconds on a moving car. Scary. In discovering that, I found a pool of what can only be described as sludge, in one of the side cubby holes of the trunk. This sludge consisted of general filth, clay, and gasoline. Once we got that out of there, getting rid of the smell didn’t take too much more work.
So, Le Duke is back. Crap. I guess that means I have to actually do work again. Oh, well. At least I get to listen to this week’s SModcast, which has been eluding me all week. I also need to go to Books-a-Million to pick up a couple of books for Operation B. He is learning to do card tricks, so I thought maybe I’d pick him up a book on them and maybe a new deck of cards.
Anyway, Ima go study for my final. Wish me luck. More soon. ~SC
