you can kind of see each one of their "stations" here (crappy pic, yes, I know, it was really dark and I was far away with my phone) Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Well, I don't have the genetics thing working for me. Pretty much my entire family kicks off around 70, barring a few early check-outs. That leaves me just 29 more years. Plus, running shoes are cheaper than therapy.

That about sums up the whole situation for me.


OT: I want to fit in with all the other adult people with steady jobs here and whine about my job, but so far it's too much fun to bitch about.

thankfully the CC company is taking care of it, but its still a bit of a pain in the ass, and kind of disconcerting.

This is why it pays to use something like mint and check it regularly.

Shopping online as much as I do, my CC # is stolen at least once a year. Lkcily I have USAA, who have phenomenal fraud control. I always hear from me within a few hours of an incident. It probably helps that the card usually turns up in some foreign city that I've never visited - one year it was used in Riyadh, another time someone bought a pricey dinner in Dublin Ireland.

It is strange. People shop a lot online, so many sales are done online, but I actually rarely shop online.

Bought a Danish dresser from Craigslist that had a glossy oil polyurethane finish. It's probably about thirty years old. I planned on refinishing it by chemically stripping the finish coat with steel wool, re-staining in a different color, and then sealing it with a satin polyurethane. I started today and noticed its going to be very difficult to remove the existing varnish with steel wool, because I suspect there are three coats of it on there. That leaves me with hand-sanding or power sanding, but the drawers have a veneer on top of solid wood, which risks sanding through. So I'll probably have to sand it by hand with a much finer grade paper that I'd want, which will take forever, and I'll have to do it outside in the cold over a couple days, bringing it back inside after each day. Otherwise it will get stolen. Once it's sanded, then it will probably need a coat of conditioner, two coats of stain, and then finishing sealer. We're talking a lot of work. ffffuuuu.gif
