Another coffee maker FWP. So today as I was heading to pick my daughter up from daycare I made the decision about which coffee maker to buy. So I order it from a store's website with the pick up from store option... Imagining it will be ready for pickup pretty much once I've picked my daughter up.
But no! At the end of the day it still says "processing". I even checked and the store has it in stock, but just won't let me pick it up yet :wallbash:

I'm gonna cancel the order if I don't get to pick it up tomorrow.

I cancelled the order and went and bought it directly from the store. FML, I had to interact with another human being!

I'm having that once yearly urge to sell my entire collection and replace it with one guitar. I won't do it, but I have the itch. Probably will at least offload the maverick

Same...just 2 guitars. I rarely even play guitar anymore and if I sold some of them I could fund the hobbies that replaced guitar...but I just can't. I started on a beat to shit 80s Strat copy using my dad's old strings that were kinda rusty and now I have a handful of Custom Shops. It's just one of those things. Also the main ones I would sell have some issues I'd need to fix before I could sell them.

Have to sit at home recovering instead of going out to the beach partying

Was gonna take some pics outside of a guitar I wanna sell but the neighbor is having a party/bbq and I don't want them watching me do a photoshoot

Also I finally obtained by pure chance a set of secondhand black baseplates to match the black hangars I have on my longboard. Previously it had "gold" (read: orange) baseplates which I hated, but now I feel it's too plain and lacks character. Can't buy "gold" 30 plates either so it's either gold front black rear or just leave it black. Sigh.

It's a FWP kinda day

After a decade of having a busted piezo on my JP7 and getting the replacement unit from EBMM and doing piece by piece soldering and checking everything with a multimeter last year, and putting it together + restringing it… it didn’t work.

Didn’t want to waste brand new strings at the time so I just dealt with it until now. So a year later, took it all apart, added some insulation tape, rechecked everything. Confirmed after each step. Restrung it. Plugged it in. G string doesn’t work with the piezo but the other 6 do. FML. Now I’ll need to wait a long time to address that unless I feel like wasting new strings. Which I don’t. RIP. At least I can blend with the magnetics…

So I got a new job and I've been having a mix between being old problems and being country problems at work. Getting to know my coworkers and one of them is a welder. We were talking about jobs we've had before and he starts talking about the racks he used to make. Now on one hand, I keep urban dictionary open on my phone and know a rack is (1) thousand cash could be within a rubber band. But, he's a welder, could be something like making custom headache racks for trucks, or like a pipe rack. A rack is an actual thing that involves welding withing throwing in slang.

Not to mention, I'm a redneck, so when you say rack my first thought is

Bluetooth frequency crowding at the gym? Only happens here with a decent crowd.

My wife has been autism dumping Game of Thrones to me. The way she's explaining it is super fucking interesting. I've tried watching the show with her and I can't get into it, because for lack of a better word, most of the characters...

I mean yeah, that's sort of the crux of the whole thing, the respectable ones try to pay by the rules and get off'd while the cunts survive by playing by their own rules until they get outsmarted

I get that, she's made the the series so much more entertaining and interesting than HBO did. And she's stoked. tried to get me into her favorite show and I didn't like it, but she explains it and I'm into it. She super happy, spent a couple hours explaining it to me, etc.

She see's one bug in the house and I figure it's my turn to reference my favorite fantasy series. I ask if she want's to play gwent on time and all of a sudden I'm the asshole.

I really need to stop buying guitar courses, I don't make enough time to realistically get through all of them. Any time one goes on sale, I'm like sick be cool to learn some chops in that style, then the backlog just keeps growing. Not to mention when I do play, it's usually to learn songs:rolleyes:

So there I am, minding my own business waiting for my turn to come up at karaoke, when I notice this foxy older lady across the bar noticing me. We continue to steal glances at each other, all the while I feel like I recognize her but can't quite place it. Finally she comes over and introduces herself and... it's my friend's landlady. My friend rents studio space from her which I also utilize and.... well it's just against my principles for a variety of reasons. Oh well, maybe next time.
