I had a lot planned for the day. I did get quite a lot done, but unfortunately for you, not much of it is very interesting. Or did you actually want to hear about how my trip to the bank, the fabric store, and the oil change shop went? I didn’t think so.
This is the trash can that I bought today. And Sake.
There are three pieces of steel in the garage just begging to be cut and welded. I was going to do the cutting today, but I was thwarted by itchy hives all over my body. Sexy, isn’t it? I don’t know what’s causing the hives. It might be an allergic reaction to Woolite.
The hives kind of went away after slathering on some Cortizone ointment (my other option was a tube of anti-itch cream that expired in 1999—slightly overdue for Spring cleaning), but now I’m covered in petroleum. I had planned to cut my steel with an abrasive blade on a circular saw. This method will most certainly throw some sparks, and sparks usually means having to wear all cotton clothing. In case you didn’t know, cotton balls doused with petroleum jelly make an excellent fire starter.
Not wanting to turn myself into a living, breathing, giant piece of slow-burning fire starter, I decided to wait until tomorrow to do the cutting. Wise choice, don’t you think?
