A Less Than Comprehensive Selection of First World Problems...

...lurk below the fold.
For those disinterested in an old fat guy's first world problems here's the exact opposite; a cute girl, walking home from school, carefree in Penang.

Anyway: While going through the hurricane box and checking for dates, I noticed that there was DAK ham with an expiration date of 2008. If I've learned anything from wasting time on the internet, it's that expiration dates are meaningless so I figured I'd have it for lunc..... more...

Holding Pattern

Tuesday I went to school to make arrangements for re-enrolling in my final class. I checked my Student E-mail to see if my advisor was available for consultation. It turns out that she has left the country and won't be back for over a month but she insisted that rather than signing up for the current session that I "DON'T DO ANYTHING!" She said that she's pretty sure that I'm good to graduate, but that the process of applying for another class involves removing my graduation application. I also noted that my graduation worksheet"Degree Works" says that my credits requirement has not been met; that I have 'only' 123 out of a needed 120 credits.
Well. That's odd.
So... I'm going to hold tight while the chocolate ration is adjusted.

Below the fold is the a copy/paste of what I typed in the two fields of the senior survey I was asked to complete last week.

Below this text is a good visual representation of how not to stagger ladders for safety.

I Can SEE!

As there is likely little interest in the banality that lurks below the fold, we've decided to provide, as a service to you, gentle reader, a helpful demonstration of how to deal with some of those pesky manticore issues that may crop up from time to time.

Mom in Hospital (UPDATED)

Last night, I got a call from my brother (who is visiting our folks) that Mom suffered chest pains and then got a case of the shakes, felt cold and her vision went blurry. None of these things are good.


This morning, the diagnosis was a clot in her lung, which is pretty terrible, however as of now that does not appear to be the case. She's being scheduled for "cathaterization" so it sounds like they are going to do an angioplasty or something. 

I'm getting slightly conflicting reports from relatives on-scene (250miles away), but prognosis seems much better, even good as of now.

Blogging will remain light to nonexistent. 

UPDATE:
They couldn't find a blockage, or a stroke or anything, which is troubling. More tests results are pending, but for now she is released and is staying in the guest room in their house (as she is forbidden to deal with stairs.) One theory is that she may have just been suffering from exhaustion. Perhaps now she'll listen when we tell her to calm down and not drive herself to hard about Thanksgiving. 

OK, that's not going to happen. 

Anyway, she seems better.

Banality Intrudes (UPDATED)


As annoying as things sometimes get, I can at least take solace from the fact that I have not had to deal with high-school for 20 years.

In the Queue...

...are 2 papers for History, a "New Math" test on Monday, a presentation for my Kanji Project, several pages of Japanese homework, a presentation for my International Relations class, as well as a term paper and multiple readings for the same.


In the done file are the Kanji Project, a Kanji Test, a "New Math" test a history paper, lots of readings and the Easter Rush at work.

In neither category are any blogposts at the moment. 

Instead, I leave a mystery for you to ponder and hopefully solve,...

Lawnmower Blues

Spent all day running errands and trying to get the lawnmower started.
I don't actually have any blues. But I did find this.

It was a Dark and Stormy Night

Due to severe weather delays, we were overstaffed at work this morning. As a result, I got off way early and about 5:30, as I was driving home, a lightning bolt struck next to me and showered my van in burning tree parts.


After a moment, I noted that the stricken tree next was next to a neighbors house and was burning with alarming intensity despite the downpour. I got out to see if it could be put out or to help the people get out as this was looking pretty grim.


 
The owner of the house and I tried to put out the fire but neither the rain nor our bucket brigade was having any effect. After an embarrassingly long interval, I had a neuron fire and realized that the tree wasn't burning, the ground was. I advised the gentleman to call the fire department NOW because it could be a peat fire and that could be the end of the whole block. 

But wait...It was quite intense for peat. The ground around it was undulating and hissing...and it kept getting more intense until it was almost like...a blowtorch. 

Oh. Lord. The lightning struck a gas main!



We kept the bucket brigade on it to keep it from igniting the tree or the house until the police arrived and decided to let it burn off the gas until the firetruck arrived, at which point I moved my van to make room for the ladder truck and carried my bedraggled ass home.

Looking at the rain, I really don't think I'm going to get the grass today.
