What a Day (and Night.)

Had a day off from work yesterday.  No OT this time.  So I slept in, rode my bike out to my mother house, mowed the lawn and mounted an American Flag on her porch.  Had a decent dinner of baked chicken and something called Fennel?  Its was a starchy but ok.

 It was about 10:45pm when I rode my bicycle home.  It was somewhat dark, but I was at a lit crossway.  I nearly got creamed by a pickup truck driver.  I yelled out “Watchit Fucker!”  He responded by yelling that I need to put lights on my bicycle.  I was pissed, but in retrospect, he was right and I should’ve been more careful.  Sorry.

 So I went grocery shopping after work, picked up the food stuffs.  Filled my gas tank and bought an overpriced bottle of Tylenol.  Slept until 7am today.

Got up, got 5 computers out of storage.  Striped and piled about 7 computers in my car.  Took them to the dump.  Felt good to reduce the trash load.  Got my oil changed too. 

 About 10 minutes ago, my mother came to my desk and told me that they towed her car.  I offered to let her borrow mine so she can get home.  She’s going to call Mark, my oldest cousin.  Its going to cost her $120 dollars to get her car out of stock. 

 Shit rolls down hill.

Working a lot of OT at work.  Ugh.  Need the money to get out of debt and help mom with her bills.  Things at work are stresfful, but marginally bearable.

On a plus note, that messy radiator patch is holding.  My car is no longer leaking and I’m able to drive without my engine overheating.  Now if I could just do something about the mess…

Welcome to the Blog of me.  I hope you find it interesting, but if not, oh well.

Yesterday was a rough day for me.  After driving home from work, my car started overheating badly.  So I pulled over twice to let it cool down.  I slept and woke up about 5 hours later and started the long bicycle ride out to get my chores done.  Returned stupid movie to Blockbuster, and bought a repair kit for my leaky radiator. 

Got home, was sick as a dog.  It was 95 degrees out with air quality warning.  I rode about 4 miles in that weather.  So I got a case of heat exhaustion.  Cooled off and called in stupid. 

 Waited a few hours for it to cool off outside.   The radiator kit was an alcholol swab, a piece of fine grain sandpaper, a flimsy sheet of fiberglass and the epoxy mix.  Despite my clumsy efforts, I was able to actually patch the crack in the radiator.  It now holds water without leaking. 

 I hope it will hold until I can replace the radiator.
