So Kate and I have been having a lot of fun since she arrived and my emotions have not been an issue so far :o
Took her to steak n shake for our first date then yesterday went to family dollar to pick up cleaning supplies, and we went to a new restaurant that makes a variety of burgers including a glazed donut burger :o
And today she went with me to the veterans doctor for my blood work results and talked with my doctor a bit (she's a surgical nurse) and I'm doing fine, then went to Walmart to pickup some stuff so she can cook some interesting meals soon.
 Then we tackled my kitchen which was in desperate need of a woman's  touch.. Threw out a bunch of stuff that was no longer needed  and now we're both tired from that project..
Tomorrow  we'll tackle the bathrooms. I think she's a keeper!

Anybody have a relative you alternate almost daily on whether or not you hate them? My future sister in law has a lot of similar interests to me, and we get along most, but her boyfriend has got her all twisted up, spouting a bunch of insensitive young white guy entitled bullshit. It's very confusing to be having a conversation with her on one Facebook thread, and then see something I'd expect from 19 year old 4chan users in another.

Puffed battery in my phone replaced, new back cover, new glass over the camera.  Ordered the stuff from Amazon last night and it was waiting for me when I got home from work today.

It's certainly lost some of it's waterproofness, the new back cover didn't include any double sided tape for the area around the part that holds the camera and flash windows.

Consider this.  A remake or sequel to The Final Sacrifice, but with Josh Brolin as Rowsdower (credit to Kevin).

Got my fireworks for the 4th, Phantom Fireworks had buy one get one free for the entire store.
Got too many bottle rockets, but probably too few roman candles.

My stomach was pretty upset tonight so I just needed to indulge myself. I went down to Sonic and got a large vanilla Sprite. Over 2 bucks is a little pricey for a large drink but Sprite has the power to calm my stomach pretty much immediately.

In other news... my friend Steph put down her dog today. I was afraid this was going to happen. I talked about this earlier in the thread. Basically the poor puppy was suffering from a very aggressive form of cancer that even chemo couldn't help. Steph was trying to get the dog into a clinical trial to see if that would do something to reverse the growth... but they couldn't get him into the clinical trial. Of course, I texted my friend right away with condolences once I saw the news on FB. Breaks my heart, but a large part of me knew this was going to happen.

For some people, it is the last day they will have 10 fingers.

Forgot... the reason I was getting on the Completely Random Thoughts page...

In Driver's Education, they never gave a good way to decide when to put one's headlights on.  Over the course of years, I figured out a way that works for me, and I've used it for the last few decades:

If, a block away, you can't tell what color an oncoming car is: turn on your lights.

This works for low-light conditions, fog, rain, etc.  As it is about 'clarity of vision' that can be easily and 'objectively' measured (well, as objective as 'can you tell the color of the car?' is, at least).  It is also something you can retest, over and over, as you drive, to see if visual conditions have gotten better or worse.

I've seen people drive in very dark conditions (and rain, and snow) without lights.  If this simple rule was taught, less 'I didn't see you' accidents would happen.

If I'm in the car, I turn on the headlights. Simple as that.
I don't find Stratton and Varney funny.
Doesn't make me a bad person.

My last 3 cars have had automatic headlights.  If the sensor doesn't see bright sky overhead, the lights are on.

On another note, judging by the increase on fireworks going off this year vs. last, I'd say the state made a lot of money off the extra 12% tax they added when they made areal displays and stuff like bottle rockets legal.  They got about $20 from me.  Put on a show for about 40 minutes for around $120.
