XKCD hits another homerun for Atmostpheric Science

So, I haven't been to work for two days.  The panhandle of Florida is under about a quarter inch of ice and because of all the bridges being closed, I couldn't drive to work even if I wanted to be there.  I talked to my brother up in Alaska and he tells me it is like spring up there and totally lovely.



One would have thought this would be a great two days to catch up on some garage projects.  I have my girlfriend's miata engine half disassembled in the garage ( I am pretty sure she thinks I murdered her car, she had never seen pistons in a vehicle she owns before), I have a flying motorcycle that needs everything, I have a cadillac that is leaking tranny fluid and needs to be converted to diesel, I have my girlfriend's shoes pretty much everywhere with a shoe storage closet only a figment of my imagination... but unfortunately everything is parts + X. (X=time in hours) I got the + now, but not the parts.  You either got time or you got money/parts... but never at the same time it seems or the same X for that matter.

Thanks to amateur-sophist I happened to have an old school balsa model of a hellcat to build.  A nice indoor project that only involves super glue and exacto knives!

I ran out of super glue...

waiting for elmer's to dry...

elmers glue drys really damn slow...

five gimlets in...

decided to write a post!

You are WELCOME! :-)

XKCD, gimlets, and shoes. Made my morning. Nice to have you back in the groove. Sam

So, you chose the model plane over the woman's primary mode of transportation, eh? By the way, do you even HAVE a job anymore?

(Remember when blog comments were our primary path of communication?)

As it turns out I did... though I told her I am waiting for parts. It works for any particular project I want to procrastinate on. "Waiting for parts," makes it OK to do other things even with catastrophe looming on any particular project you will ever work on!

I do!!! that was before they invented text messaging... or at least before I knew how to get my phone to do it.
