More yard work today. Hey, it's going to be 90+ again and I'm working on my, and here I wish I could say "farmer's tan" but it is even more pathetic, I'm working on my "farmer's sunburn." But, the good news is, still no rats in the back yard since I killed them a couple of months back, aaannnnd, I'm taller than the grass. Mostly. Is it silly to get all excited about a new string trimmer even if you generally hate yard work? Oh, and maybe I should buy the trimmer line to go with it,eh? 'Cause like that stuff runs out, like, everytime you bump it on the ground and all. I've always wondered why they made trimmer line in bright colors so you see these little bright nubs of nylon all over the yard for weeks. Seems they should make it grass colored, ya know? Or, do they expect me to get out there and pick that stuff up? Nah, nylon is biodegradeable right? Ya gotta leave something for future archeaologists! "For some reason 21st century man had a tendency to destroy their fiber optic cable by chopping it into short lengths. We think this was a tribal act of war on another tribe, denying them e-mail communications."

The dog pics are not as easily forthcoming as first thought, but should be taken today. For some reason they are in that, "Ooo, a camera! Let's get all blurry and slobbery and jumpy!" phase. It's like trying to compose a decent shop in a stampede of wild horses. Only, smaller and less... horsey. We got tired of them smelling like dirt, so we lined their pen with aromatic cedar. Now they smell all fresh, but they still look like dirt. Philosophical gem of the day: Dogs dig, duh.

Compare and contrast this with my post-work post of the other morning and submit your reviews in the comments section. Only, don't. Really.

l8r, suxors!

Edit: sux0rz (though this font doesn't show it, it is also a zero instead of the letter "o" Jay!)

Yeah, I went out and did my front yard this morning at a quarter to nine, and finished at ten. Edged, mowed, and blew all the clippings off the driveway. I figure if it is going to get to 95 degrees today, I better get it done while it's a cool 80ish!

That is so lame! You're never going to get sunstroke like that! Sheesh.

I wasn't aware that was the goal... DAMN! Now I'll never achieve heat exhaustion, sunstroke and skin cancer! Also known as the trifecta of lawn care.

I think the correct dictionary spelling is "sux0rz." I know how l33t you aspire to be, Bruce. :)

Of course, I don't claim to be l33t fluent, but I did realize that after I posted it and left the house on an errand. I thought I might fix it when I got back, but you, in your ever vigilant dedication to pwn all lamerz have called me out. I'll try again...
