big day [Feb. 24th, 2001|08:46 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Feels like I've been awake forever.... this weekend has be incredibly productive. I built my computer yesterday, cleaned my room, learned a lot about Debian (a lot more to go). Today I went to the hardware store and bought 800 pounds of brick tiles to rise my bed up 15 inches. I had to distribute the weight all over my car so I didn't drag.... pushing that cart around was a bitch, especially because I parked at the top of the parking lot, and there was a slight slant to it. Anyway, now my bed is up high, and I have tons of stuff underneith it. I also bought some stepping stones for the back "yard". We used to have grass there, but it's all mud now, and I hate tracking it in when I walk in from parking my car.

Going to work on my geography paper now.... I have a rough outline written, but I suspect the paper will be pretty much BS. Here we go!

800 pounds of brick tiles for 15 lousy inches?

Whatever happened to using THICK PVC tubing, liquid cement, connector joints, screw clamps, eye screws, and wire (for crossbracing support) to raise your bed up 5 feet?

If you're going to raise your bed up, you might as well loft the mutha...

Re: :D

Brick? Wouldn't it have been easier to use wood?

Re: :D

yeah, that's what I thought, but everybody kept telling me brick would be better so I finally went with brick instead.

Re: :D

Any explanation of why brick is better? Obviously it's heavier. I would think wood would be better because it's lighter/cheaper. Unless you have some funky bed raising agenda I don't know about.

All geography papers are bullshit.
