Good luck on your search.   If you end up in the Northwest, Krista will buy you a house.

say what you will about social media but at least it makes for an effective weeding out tool.

seem to have mostly trimmed my list of friends down to just the people i actually enjoy but every once in a while someone pops up and surprises.

So, apparently the only part of my washing machine’s tub that isn’t made of stainless steel, and thus impervious to most forms of corrosion, is the part at the bottom that holds the whole damn thing together. I guess there was a paper mache  shortage that year.

Thank you GE!

That seems really weird to me.  The only time I’ve seen rust or corrosion in a washing machine is up near the bleach port thingy.

Its the “hub”that sits under the agitator and bolts onto the tub to hold it to the spinny part of the motor. This washer is almost 13 years old, but still, there’s no reason why this should not be stainless or why the tub isn’t one stupid piece to begin with.

Bonus question: Guess which part the online stores only list in conjunction with the whole tub assembly for $500, and not individually? (Hint: It’s not Furley’s wife)

Shocking. 

Let’s see if we can put this into perspective.

This song came out in the fall of 1982.  The local radio stations were pure, hot garbage.  If it wasn’t on the charts it wasn’t going to be played.

 Your humble narrator was at the tender age of 14 or 15.  I was listening to early U2, REM’s first EP, the Clash, and a bunch of goofy New Wave crap.  Yeah, I was a proto hipster in madras shorts and a dumb haircut.

MTV was my only refuge.

But guess what video aired every 12 minutes? Yeah, you guessed it.  The gutless, MoR, cloying, overrated turd known as “Africa”.  

You get home from school, flip over the knob on the converter box to MTV hoping for some Split Enz or Oingo Boingo or whatever and there’s Toto.  Just crapping all over the place.  Like clockwork.  Change the channel for 20 minutes and then come back...as sure as Nina Blackwood’s carpet didn’t match drapes there was some goon missing rain.

Yeah.

Terminal 1 E concourse of MSP airport there’s a bar called Bar Lolo. They have the best breakfast here and one of the best in the city. Eggs over easy, hash browns with bacon and cheese, a whole sausage and toast with some kind of bacon jelly. 

Dude next to me is wearing a fedora and is on his 2nd shot of tequila and has been nursing a double pour of red wine. It’s 6:30 am. Damn.

Lol just ran into double vodka guy in the men’s restroom. He’s not doing very well - washing his face in the sink. 

I ripped a fart and he glared at me. Seems angry.

There's your first problem.  

there’s Toto.  

Yeah, Toto blows.  Africa has been stuck in my head all morning now, and I don't even know the lyrics.

Also, I thought you'd be older....

I'm realizing more and more that I structure and that change stresses me out.

For the last few weeks every project I've been on at work has had issue after issue and my schedule for what job sites I'm on seems to change multiple times per day. Today alone my schedule for next week has changed 3 times already. 

It's crazy because most of the changes so far have actually resulted in less actual work and a bunch of short days for me, but my stress levels have remained high just due to the constant uncertainty.

If less work makes more stress, you're doing i wrong.

Maybe make a more flexible schedule, so you don't get all anal about it.

Mon am Appointments

Mon pm - Open

Tue am Flex Time

Tue pm Appointments

I have zero control over my own schedule unfortunately.

The Agitator is my wife's wrestling name.
