The case of the conspicuous lawn furniture

tcr! · Oct 2, 2018 at 4:36 pm

One time when I was drinking I put a lawn chair in the middle of the yard that runs along the side of my house. My thought was that it’d be the perfect spot to keep tabs on the neighbors from a slightly covert location.

A couple days later when I was sober I remembered the lawn chair and returned it to the back deck. I felt somewhat embarrassed afterward as it was a somewhat embarrassing place to have lawn furniture.

If you ever see a guy sitting in a lawnchair in his side yard, it would be safe to assume he’s drunk.

Considering the number of times I’ve heard Siri and Alexa react to things that weren’t directed at them, this seems problematic.

She tells me fairly often, “I’m sorry I don’t know what went wrong.” This apology also comes unprovoked.

They really should have picked a more unusual combination of sounds for the activation word. “Flizblorp”. “Gzanbo”. “Jikladoon”.

I’m still hoping for Leopold as in “Leopold, turn on the terminator, oh Leopold!”

tcr! tcr! · Sep 25, 2018 at 1:28 pm

However, I do think that “Jikladoon, what shall be the weather this day?” has a nice feel to it.

Also, let the record show I heard other mowers in the neighborhood. I wasn’t the only one who waited until the final, final notice.

I always liked mowing the lawn. I’ll do yours for $30

tcr! tcr! · Sep 16, 2018 at 7:39 pm

I don’t mind it either unless I have laundry to do, groceries to get, bills to pay, and all that other bullshit… 🙄

I don’t like mowing I wish my neighbor would just mow it everytime he mows his like one time he went over in our yard by a couple inches I was like yes he’s gonna mow it yeah no he was done after that strip of grass

Irene · Sep 17, 2018 at 10:52 am

Chewed-threw chipmunk with bill

Chewed threw chipmunk with bill

A chipmunk just cost me $258 for a chewed-threw wire replacement. At first I thought it was something I’d messed up when installing the ecobee thermostat but no, it was a dumb rodent.

Repair guy said they detect the heat in the wire and think it’s a food source of some kind. I guess with brains smaller than a walnut, they have to be pretty stupid.

Bush with a bad haircut

This is why I should always take a step back and look at the big picture when I’m cutting someones’s hair. It’s also what happens when I just want to get something done.

Sorry kid, this is a lost cause. You’ll just have to wait until your hair grows back.

Anarchy in the garage

Throwback Thursday to five years ago this May when I painted an anarchy sign in my garage.

Because I still protest. In general.

Trombone in the blue room

tcr! · May 18, 2018 at 7:40 am

When Sara and I were up in Galena I found and bought a trombone at an antique store. Same store I got the looney bin room numbers.

And then I hung up the trombone in the blue room with a curtain holdback hook. Because of course that’s what you do. I was gonna put it above the window but Sara said maybe beside. Of course her idea was better.

I blew it a little when I got home and I sounded just about as good as I did when I was ten and played one in school.
