Pool illuminated night above

The pool light switch was backward. It broke the common so I was getting power to the light even with the switch open. That resolved, my sweet led bulb is working its magic at a whopping 2.75 watts, compared to the 500 watt incandescent I pulled out.

The long life of led is nice, considering the complexity of the fixture around it. The pure white color goes well with the bright white epoxy coating on the pool. And it's bright too, the above image is pretty close to how it looks, and it's currently directed at the wall. Hopefully tomorrow Jon will brave the cold to affix it, Rabot keeps getting entangled.

So as soon as we get a little more warm weather, there'll be parties that can go well into the evening at RFQ Memorial Pool.
Mother, Jon, Curt, and I braved the Settlers/Seafarers/Cities and Knights combination. The game duration was a mere two hours, though there was little seafaring. We only played to thirteen, which may have been a bit small on account of the extra terrain tiles. It was all made phenomenal by my Auntie Kathy's delicious chili.


Ian said he wanted to go riding then went back to bed.

Screwmosas at Pizza Port in 45 minutes... be there or suffer my wrath.

I didn't realize crosswords haunted your dreams.

Someone's fishing for quotes to put on their blog... eat nards!


Sort of like teabags huh?


I think moet might be wasted on oj and vodka. But yeah, you got it. It's heaven in your mouth.

Screwmosas? I am intrigued. Non?

5 vps on one turn?? how'd you pull that off? I sense sneaky underhandedness going on!


Your thermometerwatch must be broken, it was a 5.473 hour game. And it's your fault you took so long to win.

I rented a d2x this weekend. It handles quite well, all the extra frills don't diminish usability. A d3 is probably out of the question for the next camera purchase, but I'll be interested to see how the d700 compares. The most noticeable differences...

Compromising admissions

The mirrors add light and space to the bathrooms. I can get away with the panels for the sides of the upstairs bathroom and all of the downstairs. I shudder to think of how much a custom 5' x 3' is going to run me for the main, upstairs piece.
