Is this a thing?

I'm not sure how that all really works but it came into the house from underneath. A chunk of the vinyl floorcovering in the bathroom blew straight up in the air; we found pieces of it in the toilet bowl.

That was "my" toilet, too. :( The one that said "back right up, buddy. And make it a double." (Al Bundy)

At least you weren’t using it at the time. That would’ve scared the #### out of me with nowhere for it to go.

would have been a quad if you were sitting on it when this happened.

Two days ago an underground lightening strike exploded our basement toilet, killed the hot water heater and probably the dishwasher, fried most of the electronics in the house and knocked out AC for 24 hours in nice muggy 92 degree Maryland heat. Could have been way worse but the electrician who came yesterday was a smart, persistent guy who kept us from abandoning ship at the last minute.

It's gonna be 98 here today with a heat index 10 or 12 degrees higher.

Yikes. Glad you' and yours are ok, my friend. If y'all want a break, you're welcome to my place. I can get lost for the weekend.

Now I have to worry about underground lighting too?! Please don't tell me there are underground tornados... That's the last thing I need.

With everything going on in your sewer system, you should be worried about underground gatornados

So far so good.  Walked around quite a bit today.   Took her shopping for her birthday.   She’s vegetarian so headed to some place called Ladybird in East Village that gets good reviews.  Seeing Mean Girls tomorrow.   Drinks are still possible tonight or tomorrow.

Got rear ended on my way to a doctor’s appointment out of town (another fun story).  I was heading south on the 99 (I-5’s redneck cousin).  There was stop and go traffic due to a big rig jackknifing a few miles ahead.  Some geezer in an old Lincoln plowed into me, I hit a Honda in front of me, that Honda hit a pickup with a big ### trailer hitch.

My car should be fine, as far as those things go.  The poor Honda took the brunt thanks to the trailer hitch.  

Yadda yadda...5 hours later I’m home with a rental car.  

Im fine BTW.  Thanks for asking.

I'm on day 8 of a 19 day vacation. I get back on a Sunday night. Monday morning I have to make a 5 hour drive to spend a week doing an insane amount of work for a client. Fun.

On the other hand, hard to complain when I have a 19 day vacation. Almost feels like being a teacher. So far we've seen Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon and just got to Zion. Have 3 days here at Zion and then have Yellowstone and Grand Tetons. It's been awesome.

Nice. Not hiking, but just got back from 7 days and 6 nights canoeing in the Boundary Waters near Ely. It was amazing, but we were basically pinned into our tents by 9 every night because of the mosquitoes and it Never. Got. Dark. Don’t know if it was an exceptionally bright moon, or just being that far north, but it was ridiculous.

Think if I ever do another major trip with my son, we’ll go back to hiking and not seeing how many bugs we can collect under the canoes while portaging.

You know, uh, one of those manure-spreaders jackknifed on the Santa Ana?  God-awful mess.  You should see my shoes.  Whehh!!

I made sure I had no responsibilities this weekend so the only time I have left the air conditioning was to go to the restaurant across the street to get lunch.  Will be the same tomorrow - lunch from a restaurant no more than 1 block away and cooking dinner.  No other things I have to do that can't be done another day when it's not 110 degrees outside.  It must have literally been 125 degrees in the subway station today.

Ladybird was really good.   Went to some vegan Thai place tonight.  On way to rolled ice cream by Washington Square Park.

Anyone here seen the movie Moonwalkers? It’s hilarious. Mrs. O thought we were going to watch Capricorn One with OJ. Now I’ve been accused of bait and switch <_<

Wyoming is an interesting state. And by interesting I mean Yellowstone and Grand Teton are awesome and the rest of the state is the most boring thing I've ever driven through.

It was 58 at the airport this morning. There's never been a temperature in the 50s, in July, in Austin. Not to worry, we will return to our regularly-scheduled Turkish sauna by the weekend.

Other areas are vastly underrated imo. Bighorns and Flaming Gorge come to mind. But highway driving is lots of miles of nothing.

Just got nicked for a week.  Second dumbest time out I've ever gotten (the first was for posting :lmao: when smoo revealed the priest joke that he'd been suspended for three years earlier).  Mods are testy.

Ran across this the other day:

Quote

An old flame from high school reached out to me and wants to meet for drinks this weekend. But it's also my dad's birthday.

So now I have to decide whether to spend time with the person who took my virginity, or my ex-girlfriend.
