Good morning or whatever part of the day is for you. Today is Saturday, June 20, 2015. The temperature is 70.1°F and the humidity is 73% at 9:07 a.m. PST (-8 GMT). Weather Underground shows sustained winds at 2.2 mph with gusts of 3.8 mph. It’s clear and sunny. Weather Underground is predicting a 0% chance of precipitation and a high of° (“cooler than yesterday”) today.
I slept in to 7:30 today. I’m usually up between 4 and 5. I feel like the day is half over. I’m not going to get anything done. I hope I can at least get the review on the second Hardy Boys book done for Examiner. That shouldn’t take too much time.
As far as the kitchen floor goes, it seems the answer is to pick a section of the floor, let the stripper soak for a minute or two then simply scrub it with a hand brush. It’s going to be mighty slow going. Both Mr. Siduri and I picked out areas and got down on our hands and knees and scrubbed. The ammonia and towel experiment, while it did produce dirty water, didn’t seem to change the floor itself all that much. I’ll do another section tomorrow while Mr. Siduri is asleep. His next project (and gods bless him) is refinishing the kitchen cabinets.
I got a call today from, um, “Windows” telling me that they’ve been tracking my computer for several weeks and noticed criminals hacking into it and stealing my documents.
I told him that we’ve gotten calls like this before, that this was all nonsense and asked him Mr. Siduri’s favorite line, “Does your mother know what you’re doing?”
In return, I got hostility: “Oh, you’re so clever. Well, f*ck off. Simply f*ck off!”
Being the snot-nosed little smarty-pants that I am, I had to ask, “Kiss your mother with that mouth?”
I think I touched a nerve. Sad to think that the people who fall for this scam are those who can least afford to. If I could, I’d take these bastards out for a good old fashioned whooping.
Off to write another day—
Thanks for reading. Hope you and yours are all well and happy. Hope the day brings you good things.
1. Spend an hour with Siegfried
2. Finish and post Hardy Boys no. 2
3. Read for an hour.
4. Continue looking for markets for “Dirt.”
