Well, that would be their intended purpose, which would be true if, for example, the project was to build a king-sized captain's bed with six pull out aquarium tank platforms underneath it - one could lounge in bed and pull out the drawer du jour and spy from the top down on one's specie of interest, perhaps sprinkling a little spirulina dust down upon the subjects.

But, we are not using them thusly.

It isn't sporting to use too many things for their intended purpose. That does not require lateral thinking, or too much innovation.

The captain's bed, or the gun turrets?

And, Liam, really. Shotguns? Technology is sooooooo much more interesting than that, nowadays, even for bubettes.

**********

Next part of the project, after digging around DK's bins & barrels o' stuff:
Yeah, they're really dirty, still. Their INTENDED purpose is home gutters. Their first DK purpose was wall-mounted poultry feeders. Now, they are on to their next rendition...

Oh, WOW. Shrimptern 2.0 has just come up with a brilliant idea. We are already working on some projects, ahead of time.

I need to go back to the drawing board, a bit, with the new idea.

Went to Lowes today, and it borders on embarassing for me to go there nowadays. The guys there know me so well that they love to help me, because I always present them a challenge with a project doing something whacko. They are eager to get to me when they see me in the store. Not that I'm there all the time oh how I lie...

Some of the parts I bought I can use with the new idea, but now I need to go back to Lowes to change a few out...

Coo-el.

BREAKING NEWS>>>>>>>>>>

Look what I found in the yard. OK, so it's a hummingbird nest, big deal.

But, look closer. This particular nest is made from DK's Germans' and DK's hair. It so happens that among other hats, she is the family cosmetologist, and, being a bubette, she throws the hair out into the back yard. Yeah, she cuts her own hair, even.


In one picture, if you look at the full size image, you see a hair that is half white half black - telltale agouti. In the other close up, dark human hair with severed ends...

Haha, everyone calls me a hair farmer because I'm covered in the stuff, but Dk actually is one.

Didn't think I'd be ready for another how-do-they-stay-in-business rant, so soon.

So, DK orders herself a pair of heavy duty drawer slides. In the top picture. For $18, shipped.

Other Geek: "What did you order that's SO HEAVY?"

DK: (rolls eyes, scuffs feet, flicks pupils back and forth rapidly) "Um, have no idea. Din't order anything that should weigh that much."

Opens package.

They sent a case, instead of a pair.

Hmmmmmmm.

********

Oh, and the light bulb for the microwave arrived, as well.
