Still keep questioning whether the phone call even really happened. In a few days I get to pitch the already-sanctioned ghostwritten memoir of a really cool dude. And there is absolutely no way they will say no.

So, uh, the book's finally been announced. I'm happy. :)

Got an email from Billy in China this morning, said he's doing fine.
What prompted him was he just got my Christmas card, guess it went on a slow boat to China.

i just received a christmas card from the UK. It was one I had sent in a timely fashion, but apparently Beest's cousin had moved and "return to sender" is not airmail. They might have been on ships that passed in the night.

Bezos can suck it.

I ordered a $75 accessory for a particular $425 saw the other day and it arrived, along with the saw.

I was only charged for what I ordered.

Now I have two saws: one that plugs into the wall and one that batteries plug into.


That's probably too many saws.

TL;DR
I saw what you did there.

************************


ha!

likely you can process the "return" of the least desirable saw and they'll say, "OK, just keep it, we don't want to pay for the return".



maybe.

I finally saw something move on the International Space Station (ISS) in real time. What looked like a projecting instrument array was retracted back through a portal and a hatch closed behind it. I've been dropping in on the ISS sporadically via the live link; but, hadn't by chance seen anything moving faster than solar panels tracking the sun at an imperceptibly slow speed.

Watching the ISS is a great idea, thanks.

Is it the 21st century version of watching paint dry? Because nothing beats imperceptible slowness in my book.
