    I can feel myself becoming boring with age.

    I never wear shoes when I'm home. I mean, unless I'm mowing or something.

    Replaced my power steering line today. That was way easier than I expected. Went through my owner's manual and turns out the guy at I' Reilly was full of shit. Some Dodge vehicles do actually call for ATF4 in the power steering, but mine specifically says power steering fluid and also specifically says "do not use automatic transmission fluid". So no drain and refill. Apparently the backwoods hick contingent in Elgin believes it's all the same, but ATF4 is cheaper and easier to buy in quantity.

    So today I learned that for some really goofy reason my Dodge dually takes ATF4 instead of power steering fluid... And apparently everyone but me just knows this? Why in the hell would Dodge do this to me? Now I have to drain and refill.

    30 pounds in three months is insane. Especially at your age. Yeah, I think a new doctor is in order because it sounds like he just doesn't want to do it.

    That's a weird one. I strain my forearms sometimes, which creates a burning sensation through my wrist and up my arm. Usually goes away in a few hours. Sometimes hand cramps. Generally don't strain anything in my palms. If I was doing something like you describe(holding something up with my fingers palm up) the strain would be in my forearms. I think my forearms aren't as strong as my hands. Maybe you're the opposite? Possibly just strained your hand?

    Yeah. Well, it's more monetary prioritizing. The house is the most important thing on my list because it will result in a lower tax burden, so everything I have goes towards that. Since I changed to a much less lucrative line of work that isn't much. A smart guy would have stayed at that job until I fixed the house, but then I'd never find the time. I either have time or money. Rarely both.

    I'd be jealous, but I have so many 20" wide and better slabs of sapele I can't bring myself to be. Not to mention the 8" wide by 4" thick flatsawn hard maple. I'm hoping to some day get my house finished, set aside a work space, and build some Explorers and Vs. I may die of old age before I get through it all. Then there's the Elm I cut up.

    Not a fan of green lumber that warps like crazy?

    I got an email from Home Depot and the tagline said " The Pros trust Home Depot. " For just a second I thought "When did Prostheta become a spokesman for Home Depot?" Not my most brilliant leap of logic.

    Texas lawn in the summer. I mean yeah, we could water our lawns... but then we wouldn't have drinking water.

    Yup. That's why people used to teach kids to respect their elders. Niw I'm not sure what kids are taught.

    Got a new tablet computer. It doesn't feel as comfy as my old one, but I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    I just took all my measurements, compared them to the National average, and found that my measurements are all average for a white man ages 18-25... though I am 4" taller than average. I'll be petitioning DPS to reflect the proper age on my driver's license.
