Okay, this is actually worth posting. Thanks to metafilter once again.

SWAT hand signals explained.
alright, listen up, skanks. In what appears to be a backlash against having removed a ton of high-traffic communities from my friends list, I have just added a crateload of people. If you are one of them, don't judge my journal from yesterday's entries, I was in a bad mood. Don't judge it from the last couple weeks either, I've had unusual circumstances going on. In fact, don't judge it at all, just pretend I'm not here unless you have something witty and cool to say or if I say something totally rad to you. Or unless you feel like it. Got it? Those are the rules that... I've just made up.

No flag, no country, you can't have one.
Bad:
I can't run any water down either of my kitchen sinks because a pipe went to shizzle on me and I have to replace it. Good thing I'm smart enough to figure out that I need a pipe I might spend ten bucks on instead of paying some plumber $60 to come out and do it.

Good:
I've just made a fabulous bowl of fresh fruit consisting of quartered strawberries, cherries, and grapes.

Stupid:
I turned the computer back on just to make this post, and now I'm turning it off again.
So, that "little" leak in my kitchen became a big problem this morning. Apparently there is some sort of connection in my plumbing between the shower drain and the kitchen drain, because a whole bunch of the water that I showered with went straight out onto my kitchen floor this morning. I had to soak it up with all the paper towels in the house and then all the regular towels in the house. It's a mess. I'm leaving here to go to the hardware store as soon as they open so I can get home and fix it. Fun, fun.

Other than that, I'm completely unawake so far.

Oh yeah, they caught another one of the 50 most wanted Iraqi leaders. They caught him in the same town in Iraq where Saddam's two sons were blasted. What's up with these fucking stupid overproud Iraqis? Wouldn't you be getting the hell out of the country? I mean, assuming you wanted to avoid assassination or incarceration, right? Makes sense to me. But, whatever, as long as these morons hang out, we're more likely to catch them.

Right, I'm really too sleepy still to be pontificating on anything at all.

I slept last night from 5:30 PM to 11:30 PM and then again from about 4 AM till 7 AM. It's an interesting sleep schedule. It allows for a lot more time awake during the late night, which I like. During the peaceful stillness. Monday night the moon rose very very red. Tonight it's a half-moon. I believe I'll try to go out around midnight and take a shot of it. It rises at 12:17 AM where I am, so I'll try to be in place by then. I have an idea of what to do, but it depends on the moon rising in just the right place. If that doesn't work out, I'll have to scramble pretty quickly to set something else up before the moon gets too high and isn't red anymore.

Enough babbling; to work with me.
So after two trips to Lowe's and some advice from the plumbing guy there, I have fixed my leaky sink. Total cost of repairs: 2 hours, 61 cents. Can't complain about that.
I haven't watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind in a long time. That might be fun. Maybe I'll do that tonight at some point.
My Winamp just went from N.W.A. to Simon & Garfunkel
I am really craving a Dr Pepper. I'm wondering if my crappy mood lately has anything to do with the fact that I've completely stopped drinking pop, and as such, I'm really not taking in any caffeine at all. I don't drink coffee and haven't had any chocolate lately.

must... not... give... in.... must... be strong...
