    I submit the following evidence that the Gulf Coast was not meant for human habitation: July.

    Visiting family at the inlaws’ family compound.Report

      There was a time in human history when our species stayed basically at the coastline. This is what you have to revert to in order to survive on the Gulf Coast: if you are not 60 seconds from feet in salt water at all times, you are doomed to a life of suffering.Report

        Chiggers really get under your skin.*

        *Actually, no they don’t, this is a common misconception, they don’t burrow. But chiggers definitely suck.**

    Had today off.

    Lemme see, I wanted to finish testing this bug and submit it for code review this weekend, which would be a big deal since this will be my first code submittal at my new job. But of course someone broke the build before leaving work yesterday, so I spent the day logging in and checking to see if they had fixed it but no one had. So, no check-in until Monday.

    Fuckers! Don’t break the build!

    In other news today I had therapy and shopping, in that order.

    For tomorrow I’m going to some trans gal 4th of July party, and this girl I maybe-kinda like is maybe gonna be there and maybe I’ll get the courage to talk to her but probably not. But I hope she is and I do because she’s smart, pretty, and cool.

    Saturday there is some queer dance party thing at this one place and I’ll probably go to that. If not I’ll go to some other queer dance party at some other place.

    Other than that I’m mostly doing math.Report

    Granddaughter, now 10.5 months old, came for a day visit this week — she’s figured out crawling, plus waving furiously for “Hi!” and “Bye!” Also thinks that being held mostly upside-down and shaken by someone demanding “Give me all your lunch money!” is hilarious. Guest post up and well-received. Downloaded raw data to start working on cluster analysis for US “regions” defined by migration flows. Usual hot-and-dry weather leading up to the Fourth, but The World’s Most Sophisticated Whole-House Fan Controller™ has been doing its job and inside the house has stayed ≤76 °F. Grilling supplies laid in for the weekend. Planning a trip for later in the month to help my 86-year-old Mom clean out the house before she moves to somewhat-assisted living — her choice to do this — in September.

    I suppose I could find something to complain about, but it would just be whining.Report

    Wrapping up my mini-sabbatical part 2. The weather here for the 4th is glorious. 74 degrees at the moment with clear skies. Heat and humidity is supposed to come charging back tomorrow. I’ll be attending a cookout this afternoon and then heading home to sedate one of the dogs because she hates fireworks.

    Laying concrete tomorrow with my brother so we can get my mom’s new shed in place. UFC 175 tomorrow night.

    Leaving for a week in Atlanta on Sunday. Seven hour drive with my new manager should be interesting. He wants to talk politics. I told him I would if he promises it will be civil. We shall see…Report

    I am essentially a bachelor for the next 5 weeks, so I will be doing what bachelors do: making a mess, sleeping in the middle of the day, and eating horrible food because I won’t decide to make something until I am too hungry to take the time to make anything well.Report

    Jaybird / 19 hours ago

    Jaybird is busy eating his burrito, so it’s Maribou here instead.

    Man, that must be one big burrito.Report

    I did visit a friend today who invited me for 4th of July shenanigans.

    “I put on pants for you!”, I told him. His wife said “Awwww.”

    I ate one of his steaks and we argued about ISIS/ISIL in the Middle East. It was a lovely day. I almost can’t believe that tomorrow might be similarly awesome… FOLLOWED BY A SUNDAY!Report

    Celebrated America’s birthday last night by blowing up a small piece of it. Had the girls and some of their friends over, and they had a good time lighting the explosives. I’m not the kind of guy whose house is open to all the neighborhood kids all the time, but I do like the idea that the kids who came over will remember the experience fondly when they grow up.

    Today it’s mowing the grass, working on refinishing the used trundle bed we bought, and maybe finally repairing the handrail on our stairs before it finally falls out of the wall. And tomorrow two of the three go to summer camp for a week, which means relative peace and quiet.Report
