I'm ready to skip halloween and move into the Christmas season.  Fucking November.
Could be worse, could be January.

You know, I don't actually hate November. At least there's some anticipation involved.  And January isn't bad as a sort of "cleansing the palate" month. It's the soda cracker of the calendar year.

February, though? February's just awful. Really, really awful.

I've finally been to see Rocky Horror Picture Show in a theater.

I actually much prefer seeing it at home.  Some of the crowd participation is funny, but the vast majority of it isn't.  A lot of it is just kind of yelling what the people are doing at the time they're doing it.

There's a way to make the Rocky Horror Picture Show worse?  :speechless:

While I actually like the movie, yeah, anything can be made worse with people who think they are funnier than they are.

That said, I'm not saying I had a bad time.  Just that in the end I'd rather just watch the movie than hear some guy behind me yell "hit that car" right before Brad hits a car.

My dog is a peeping tom. Every time I close the door to my room so that you can't see in, but it's not latched, he'll poke his way through. Mom's changing in here, gotta watch! It doesn't matter f I'm the only one awake or not. Always the same...

Yeah, usually you and I share a love of 80s music. But not here.

That's an interesting idea for a website.  But, I just checked, and Manos: the Hands of Fate is not listed. Neither is Moose Baby nor Hormel.  Hmm, I guess it would be insane to expect them to be listed, but I'm anal before breakfast. Aren't we all?

Someone knocked on my door at 2:30 this morning. I thought, "No chance,Effer!" and eventually went back to sleep.

A dream awoke me around 6 am. I dreamed my  neighbor knocked on my door until I finally answered. He and a friend of his were on crack and wanted money. In my dream, I pretended to look for money but grabbed my gun and shot both of them.  They both shot me.  They got out on bail before I got home from the hospital (LOL)

I assume the dream is connected to the person that knocked on my door. But, a 4 hour lag is interesting.  Also, that neighbor wasn't a crack user and moved out of town years ago.  Odd.

Heh. No drugs involved.  Just my weird brain, which is scary enough.  :speechless:

Okay, so my CPAP machine has a humidifier. They issued it to me with the very stern warning that I was never to use tap water for the reservoir. Never ever ever.
I rarely leave the house, so that means importing distilled water. Amazon sells it in little bottles. Or huge 3 gallon laboratory-grade. Kind of cost-prohibitive either way.

I order it from Safeway, but sometimes they fuck me over and say they don't have it in stock. Really? You don't have any brand of distilled water at all? In any size. Whatever. The price you pay for being a recluse and having someone else schlep your groceries.

That means I have to ask the roommate to grab me one. It's cool if he's going by the store and remembers. But even then he's grabbing anything like bottled spring water. I'm not sure that's the same thing. I read most of these companies just bottle any old tap water and put a pretty picture on the label.

So fuck it. I bought a steam distiller. I'll make my own! Distillate Capacity: 1 Gallon in 4 hours. At $300, it should pay for itself in 337 uses (at about .89/gallon).

I suppose in the long run that will be cheaper than a deionizing filter that needs to be replaced every so many gallons.  That is if the still lasts for many years, boilers get corroded something fierce from the minerals in tap water. 

The big ones we have at work can do about a thousand gallons before needed to be replaced, but cost something like $600.  And they are only that cheap because the company that replaces them takes the old cylinders and regenerates them.  Not sure if they have small units for home installation, the company name is Mar Cor Purification.
