Having been sick for roughly 2 weeks now, I was visiting with my mother for some much needed convalescence. Around 4 AM one night, we were roused by the smoke detector going off intermittently. It continued to do so, at random intervals, for the next 15 hours. Yuko and John stopped by to eat dinner with us the following night, and John was kind enough to take a look at the smoke detector (he is a pretty handy guy and could probably build a house using only three of the fingers on his right hand).

Oh man I think I am almost back to normal ... I haven't been this sick in a while. Yuko's been mega-sweet and totally patient while she takes care of me ... thanks babe!
Oh oh so we got one of those Iron Gym pull-up bars! The way they're set up, utilizing weight and counter-weight, it's pretty slick! Also, awesome to have around. I'll be working, and if I'm taking a break or I need to think a problem out, I can go do a couple of pull-ups in the meantime. It's also become an unspoken rule that if you walk by the pull-up bar, you've got to do at least try doing some pull-ups.

I, uh, wasn't quite sure how to feel about this when Yuko did it. I'm glad she can get some use out of my face, I guess.
I'm not sure how much the ladies can relate, but some of you dudes probably can ... shaving is a constant losing battle for me. It only takes me a day or so to grow stubble back in, which is why I appear in Johnny Wander as such.
My mother hates it! When she's visiting, she's usually happy with my appearance for about 1 hour every 3 days or so. I just gave up years ago.
