kmart rules

….my time with the census is almost up, not that it hasn’t been a blast, but it was very much like watching sausage getting made: kinda icky and uncomfortable. Back to living hand to mouth, like everyone else.

It seems that invisible timer went off and all my mechanical items broke at once….my postal scale, my dvd player, my laptop, even my bestest sunglasses snapped in half. I mailed the sunglasses off to the first fix it place I found online, and picked up a replacement dvd player off ebay, but believe it or not the postal scale was a pain in the ass…Staples sells nothing but overpriced and digital crap, none of which are ever in stock…but after trying 4 stores one night I found that regardless of their website info, slow and steady K-Mart stocks the genuine USPS Postal Scale for a reasonable price no less. saved my ass I will tell you.
Now that i have the laptop back I am making up for lost time things i found online today:


– WWII Huts Rescued!! Bletchley Park has been awarded a grant by the National Lottery of £460,500. There’s still a long way to go – which is why it will be the focus of fundraising efforts as the main charity for National Shed Week 2010 – but it’s a great start.

Ann Frank video is on Youtube, the only known film footage of Anne Frank has been added to youtube by the Anne Frank Museum.
– from NPR, This American Life “Books that changed your life” I may have posted this before, but it doesn’t suck. and from the I am not making this up department….
