Wetwedding project 14
Did some stress testing, and system measuring, today. Things are pulling into place, DK thinks. She is going to await the wedding dress, before showing the bride. The dress "material" is in transit. Or, rather, "dress" "material."
She also awaits a few more parts, for her tweakings.
She spent some time today chasing some pneumatic parts (y'know, like as in pneumatics and hydraulics), hoping to use them for... well... an alternate purpose. As usual, she casts the die, and hopes it works.
In the meantime, we divert, a bit.
The Kirkland Peanut Can, a Two Act Play
A conversation, between DK and Other Geek, not atypical.
Other Geek: What is this?
DK: Um, that is the can from the Costco peanuts.
Other Geek: Nice can. But why is it here on the counter? Throw it away.
DK: Um. Well, I kept it, 'cause it might come in useful, someday. It's a nice can. Cans like that are rather rare, anymore.
Other Geek: Do you have a use for it? Get rid of it if not.
DK: Um. Well, not exactly. I was thinking maybe it would make a nice scooper.
Other Geek: See that edge on the inside, it would get in the way. This would not make a good scooper, because stuff would hang up on that edge that is too thick.
DK: Um. Well, but it's such a nice can! I'm sure I will find a use for it!
Other Geek: Throw it away! If you think of a use for it, then you can save the next one!
DK: Um. HMmmmmmmm. Well..... OK. Secretly, she has already stashed the can BEFORE this one, in hiding, because it might come in handy.
DK sits at her desk, staring at a spiral fluorescent bulb sitting on her desktop, which has been removed from her desk lamp and replaced with an LED bulb. She rolls the spiral fluorescent around in her palm, zoning out.
She isn't even trying, but is kinda fuzzy-brained because she's getting less and less sleep at night, due to the birthday present her best friend gave her, a Nook, which she wakes up and reads by at night, sucking from her sleep hours.
In her fuzzy brain state, she slips seamlessly into alpha waves. The spiral bulb in her hand all of a sudden comes to life, speaking to her.
She jolts back out of the alpha waves, realizing she's going to try something...
...using the peanut can, and the spiral bulb.
First, it was the Cashews.
Now, the Peanuts.
Well, look how successful the Cashews were...
Curtain is drawn.
