    FWIW, my “yeah, it’s not the rapture, honey” cracked up my student worker.

    Aside from having heard about the source of the outage, we also knew that only 1/2 the buildings on campus lost power. Our grid is so… not gridlike.

    In not unrelated news, I am super-ready for the weekend. Deck building and all.Report

    Nothing for me, other than trying to wrap up the seeming millions of shop projects I have going, and starting to pack. Maybe an art show with my cousin in Napa.

    But I have a cold, and that is what is slowing everything down right now.Report

    Going to go into the city for some local color and then see a my friends play. She’s acting so it won’t be as good as if she’d just be direction/producing (Zing!)

    Probably drop a few hints to the GF on ideas for my birthday. Sadly I don’t think she’ll spring for a bottle of Pappy’s or 30 year old Mccallan. 🙂Report

    I am going to be sleeping as two of the big projects riding on my back are now finished. Oh, there’s always stuff – I have grading this afternoon – but at least there isn’t a drop-dead-deadline staring me in the face for a little while.

    I also need to get to a grocery store better than the crappy local wal-mart, so I guess I’ve got that hour-and-a-half drive in my future this weekend.Report

    Fledermaus and Mr T are going to see Dolly Parton tomorrow. Hopefully, anyway, as long as I didn’t mess things up and get scammed too badly. I realized only after paying that I was dealing not with a legit ticket outlet, but with a dodgy ticket scalping outlet. So we have an electronic ticket, but less than full confidence that it will work.

    There are two parties I might go to that evening – a house party, and a roving bike party.

    Beyond that, the continuing renovations continueReport

    I’m continuing to try to buy a laptop. For a company that sells laptops, they seem strangely unwilling to sell me one. Cancelling an order with no notice (or reason), re-entering the order then having it disappear, and now sending me in circles where I dare not buy a laptop from someone else lest I end up with TWO laptops.

    And always asking me for an order number I don’t have, because it was never sent to me (for the second try at ordering it), possibly because the order was never completed because their billing department seems to have set all their servers on fire.

    I figure it’ll take me all weekend, really, to either get the stupid thing OR make sure it’s so firmly cancelled I don’t get a surprise laptop later.Report

      I’m on similar endevour that’s not going well either. Are you by any chance dealing with the Chinese people that bought what used to be International Big Machines?Report

      • Morat20 in reply to J_A says:

        No, I’m dealing with Dell, whom I’ve never had a real problem with before (as long as you avoid their lowest end machines, which is frankly advice for pretty much anyone), but right now seem bound in determined to keep my order in limbo, blame “technical problems” and claim everything will eventually sort itself out.

        The XPS laptop line looks quite nice, assuming I ever get it.Report

        • Mike Schilling in reply to Morat20 says:

          Dell was my first guess, because I had the same issue with them. I wound up having to wait an hour on hold for an actual salesperson, and them dictate to him everything I’d already entered into their web site. Some parts of it three and four times, because the idea that I was paying for it but it was being delivered to a person with a different name and address was somehow a challenging one.Report

    Running a fencing tournament on Saturday. Finishing an electricity-in-the-West post. The rest of the time goes into the deck reconstruction.Report

  8. I have about 6 bicycle racks that need to be brazed together, and if it’s not raining (“raining”, Oregon-style, I can deal with, but the rainy season has been creeping towards actual downpours) and the tickle in my throat is just allergies and not a cold I’m about a month overdue for a nice 200km ride up into the mountains.Report

    My not-so-eventful weekend:

    1. Watched Green Room – liked it.

    2. Took my youngest to buy a pair of new shoes. As my youngest is on the spectrum, I really enjoy doing stuff like that with him. It gets him to interact with people in different situations, which is always a good thing. He got this pair with bright yellow laces and says he can’t stop running when he wears them.

    3. Watched my oldest play Overwatch with two of his friends and clean house.

    4. Late night lifting. I love the gym on weekends. No one is there.Report
