lies etc 

I spent most of the spring and summer being deceived, and in each case it was by people I trusted. When someone lies to you, it takes a little bite out of your faith in humanity. So it's wrong to lie for a few reasons. You dont just cause bad feelings between you and the person to whom you have lied, but you cause that other person to actually literally change their view of the world. Let's try really hard to not forget this.

the weather & my motorcycle 

I've broken out the Suzuki and rode her twice so far this spring, once Sunday and once yesterday evening. Saw a biker at the damn and i couldn't wave because i was at the stop sign and had my hand on the clutch, but i smiled real big and he smiled real big right back. I could tell he was thinking "that lady should be wearing leather not an office sweater" but he was nice enough to smile back anyhow. It's tough keeping the ride at Grammy's house! Can't just hop on whenever.

So here's the thing .... the carburator needs a good cleaning and i have the parts kit to do it, and it can't possibly take more than maybe an hour, but i REALLY should have done it over the winter because now i dont want to take the carb off because the weather is so nice and i just know i'll want to ride it as soon as the carb is off! It's not behaving too badly yet, just needs more air than usual (has a manual choke so i can compensate) so i think I'll just wait until i have an actual garage to work in. :)

The house closing is still set for the 13rth of April but i haven't been able to get my plumbing inspection done. The seller had to fix a toilet valve first and i haven't received word on when that will be done. *sigh*. I've decided to wait for the chimney inspection until the fall when i'll be wanting to fire up the fireplaces.

It's supposed to be high 70s today!!!! Woot!!

knee update 

I don't think this first skin graft has "taken" at all. It moves around too much to stick, if you can envision that.

I have just the best friends and co-workers in the world. My boss Julie Sprinkel, the Practice Manager at DSI, found me an oven and a dishwasher for my new house. Then the next day my FORMER boss Mike Minnich from NetGain Information Systems just up and GAVE me his washer and dryer. Those items, along with the refrigerator I bought last week mean that I now have all the important appliances. I'm just flippin amazed by my friends!

It's not feeling so great since yesterday when they removed the vacuum. Dr. Garg did some work on the still-deep lower wound and it really hurt, i think there is some left over pain from that work. and the super-fragile graft he applied yesterday can't possibly be staying in one spot, it's right on the moving part of my knee......
