Unproductive day ahead... [Jun. 10th, 2002|11:46 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Don't think I'll get much done today.

In 20 minutes I leave to get my stiches removed. (How do you spell stiches? Logjam is coloring it red, and dictionary.com doesn't list it. I thought that was an easy/obvious word... guess not?)

After that I'm going over to "my" house for the inspection. One inspection has already been done and was good, but it was for a previous buyer that backed out, and since the inspection report is confidential between the inspector and client, the inspector was none too pleased that we'd seen it. (the selling agent gave it to us....) In any case, we're having a second done, for a number of reasons... second opinion, peace of mind, legal reasons (have an inspector that's liable to us if he missed something and we have to go back to him in a few months), and it'll give me another reason to walk through the house before the 21st-27th when I move in.

So today I'll go take a bunch of pictures. They'll look a lot prettier than when I move in, though, since they have tons of cutesy crap and things ... like furniture. ;-)

Then I have to prepare for San Francisco ... pack, and get my laptop setup. I recently re-installed OS X, so I need to get Fink and everything back on it.

http://www.m-w.com suggests "stitches" when I put in "stiches". =)

I would be surprised if you can get the inspector to sign anything making them liable for the house. They typically offer opinion only.

When in doubt pick another word.... for example sutures would have been a suitable alternative. However, another perfectly acceptible option would be pieces-of-knotted-thread-used-to-keep-skin-together-to-prevent-my-insides-from-going-out-and-the-outside-going-in. That's the term I usually use at work--kinda like those insanely long german words where they just put all the words together to make one....

Well I sure as fuck don't know how you'd spell it. But, I know that if you would have got the kind made with Algae, they'd just dissolve after they'd done their job...and you wouldn't have had to be inconvenienced by a trip to the hospital. Go ALGAE!!!! ROCK

your daily algae fact.
