Yesterday, Russell helped me with my truck a little. I met him at his workplace, and he attached one end of a chain to a storage container, and wrapped the other end around my bumper. I then backed up. slowly… slowly… and pulled the bumper out a little.
In the process, I discovered that nothing was really holding my grill on. I’m glad it hadn’t blown away while driving down the highway!
My truck seems to be fully functional, but there is a lot of bent this-and-that in the front end. Russell said I could order parts and replace them myself. I may try it. It seems like there are more pressing things for me to spend money on though.
I hardly ever cook for myself, but Sunday nights seem to be the one night I take time to make something that doesn’t come out of a box or can. I think it’s because I’ve been grading all day and I’m still in “work mode”.
Last night I made tacos. I mean, not very complicated, but still… it was more work than Kraft macaroni and cheese.
Comic con was here again yesterday. It really does seem to be getting bigger and better each year. This year, there seemed to be a particularly large numbers of people in costume. It was awesome. I forgot to wear my Superman shirt, so I felt kind of left out.
Last year, I met an artist who worked on Ren and Stimpy. This year, it was The Animaniacs, and Pinky and the Brain. The prints were so inexpensive, I got two. And he signed them! So fun!
