what if i took a job doing "green renovation" - weatherizing, insulation and stuff

i went to a garage sale yesterday and it turned out to be at the house of a big time local birder i don't think ive met before! i was too late to score any of the binoculars he was selling, but i picked up these two neat books - finally taking a look at them today. They're leaving the country and said they'll be pulling more stuff out of the attic for weeks - im gonna have to go back without the kids another weekend and poke around more.

"wait, i'm just sitting at my computer with headphones but no music again"

....

"oh shit, i could listen to Sleep"

not to be a stickler but instead of linking to the latest hyperbolic fashy outrage fuel and saying "they're going to get someone killed," it would probably be more appropriate if folks tweeted "they are succeeding and continuing in getting people killed."

What's the thing youre most annoyed to have burned into your brain by the Internet? Mine is probably "look at my horse"

oh yeah? if we abolish liege-lords, who's going to raise a fighting force from among the indentured peasantry to battle in disputes between liege-lords? 😏
