Last week, I tried to mow my lawn, but the mower wouldn't start. My sister decided that we needed to get the thing tuned up, so, we went and got a new spark plug, oil, air filter, fuel stabilizer. We couldn't figure out where the air filter went, but, we tried to start it up anyway. Nothing.

I ended up "mowing" the back with the weed wacker.

But, the wacker is inconvenient for the front, and it's not a long term solution. I need to either find someone who has a truck I can use to transport the mower to get fixed, or I need to figure out how to afford a lawn service. Any ideas?

 I'm working on a theme for this year,  but just so everyone saves the date, Slayerfest 2010 will be Saturday, May 29. If you have ideas for a theme, please throw something out there....

Dinner will be served, and we'll have extra special, and extra cute, dinner guests in the form of my nephews, who will be bringing their parents  over for some skewered treats.

To the wonderful anonymous friend who sent me a bunny peep! It is very cheery and appreciated!

I've been entertaining the thought of making a collection of just the Word of the Day Oscar stories, likely just of the last decade. I'm not planning on  including the ones I have from 1997,  and since I didn't actually do more than draft a few stories for 2005-2008, and no one has seen them, the collection would be part new and part old content.

I would sell them at a very reasonable rate at Lulu, or some place like that, in either a bound book or an electronic download.

What do you all think about that?

I've got the new theme ported to the Word of the Day site: http://www.k8space.com. It still needs a bunch of work, but, all the content is there.  The handy thing about WordPress is that if I get bored with the theme, I can change it easily, now that the hard part is done.
It means that this weekend, I installed WordPress, installed the theme, moved all the content, wrote an article on obituaries, and did a Colorado Cemeteries Newsletter.

ETA: Oh! this is a minor point, and I don't know which way to go, and not sure it matters. Should the subject of the word of the day posts be "Word of the Day: unusual word," or simply "unusual word"? I think there are advantages and disadvantages to either.

 I need some advice.  I am not a capable enough graphic designer to come up with lots of new pretty images, and I really don't have the time or patience to mess with it. So, I've been hunting for a free Word Press theme for the site's transition from blogger.  I need your help.  I'd love feedback on the themes I liked for one reason or another, but, none of them screamed "I'm the one you want."

So, I've been at the job a bit over a month. Yesterday, I went to my car for lunch, and it wouldn't start.  I tried a few things, nope. I sent my sister a message, she came, we tried to jump it, no dice. But, we attracted the attention of other CCCS employees, who gave me names of nearby mechanics (with card), or who stayed with us as we tried to jump it, etc. In the end, we left it over night. I was feeling sorta yucky last night, so, I scouted for some options, but, in the end, just turned in early. No Word of the Day, which I feel baad about, but, eh.

My sister dropped me off this am. The lady who had stayed with us last night, (who is a mechanic, but now does Perkins Grants) had been thinking about it, and thought we might need to try it again. She'd parked her car across from mine, borrowed my keys (I can't leave my desk), and left her car hooked to mine for over an hour, just to be sure. Nope. No dice. I tried it on my break. I told the person covering for my break what was going on. She went and mentioned it to my boss. My boss called around, and found a facilites guy who volunteered to pull out my battery.  My battery went into her car, and she volunteered to drive me to get a new one, and the facilities guy said when we got back, he'd put it in for me.  Yup, sure enough, all together, and the car is working again.

Really, I'm just feeling really grateful to a bunch of people I barely know.

I wanted to share the turtle tail with you all, and, also, experimenting with Flickr's blog utility.
