I just lost a long post because GTK2 and/or LogJam suck. GTK2 doesn't let me select a region, right-click, and copy, so I selected all, and hit the wrong thing to copy, instead replacing my whole post with a weird gibberish character. And LogJam doesn't support undo. :-(

Let's see if I can summarize:

lisa came down last night for a face-2-face (look! i'm all businessy!)

Went to parent's house to see the "LJ factory" with whitaker and Lisa... my mom and her friend and her slaving away in her woodshop, filling orders and loading up the minivan with hundreds of orders.

Went to Red Robin.

Weather's awesome.

Bike's squeaking from having been completely covered in mud, even though I washed it all off and gave it WD-40 lovin'.

Most stressful projects behind me... lot of fun stuff to work on.

Right-click-copy works in GTK, but... uh... hrm... it looks like GtkSpell breaks it? Man, I suck. :(

And copy is "ctl+c". That funny character is ctl-shift-c.

ctl-shift-c is copy in gnome-terminal. (which I actually stopped using again, because it's doing its 99% CPU for 10 minutes thing again.... back to trusty ol' rxvt)

wd-40 is not good for your bike, as it breaks down grease which would otherwise be lubricating the moving parts. it's fine for cleaning, but make sure you lube everything up again afterwards, or you're gonna have a broke bike soon.

Watch tonight's South Park

If I dump TIVO into the water and jump in, I can have a flashback to 1776.

Rather than WD-40, I recommend Break Free CLP (cleaning, lubricating, protecting) oil (look here). It can be found in the sporting goods section of your local Wal-Mart.

It's an -incredible- oil. I use it to clean and oil my pistols, free rusted locks, make my damned car door hinge stop squeaking, etc. And it penetrates. So it'll survive some water getting into the chain, soak into the bearings, etc. I highly recommend it.
