I managed to develop a moderate case of what appears to be bronchitis with a side of nasal congestion/drainage this week. On day number two of six in a row at work. I’m miserable, but I can’t call in sick, because I’m only two weeks away from forcing them to make me full time.
The lying ass of a store manager promised to make me full time back last October, but has since failed to do so. But, there is a loophole. If one works thirty-four or more hours every week for twelve consecutive weeks, they are required to make you full time. Today is the last day of week number ten.
It’s been raining almost every day for the last two weeks, and while that is a good thing for the garden, it also means that the weeds that make up my yard have achieved an altitude well in excess of HOA standards. This morning was dry, so I mowed the front and sides, despite feeling like shit. Now if the HOA Cunt™ drives by some time over the next few days, she shouldn’t have any reason to write me up. Meaning that I shouldn’t be tempted to put a bullet through her glabella from half a parsec away. Any more than I am tempted every day, that is.
Speaking of which, I need to take Annie back out for a second attempt soon. I picked up a Harris bipod, and I hope to have the opportunity to try it out. If the bolt was the reason why it wouldn’t fire before, then she should go BOOM real well now. I’ll have to use a prybar to open the bolt after each round, but I can do that. I’ll use the rifle rest to get it zeroed at 300 yards, then I’ll try with the bipod and see how much I suck. I’m brand new to this style of rifle shooting, and I’m curious how steep (and expensive) the learning curve is going to be.
I’ve recently developed quite the addiction to M&Ms. Specifically, the peanut variety. I had cut a coupon out of a recent newspaper for $1.50 off two bags. Since the coupon was set to expire next week, I just had to us it. To get two of the 42 ounce size. At nine bucks each. That was two days ago, and one bag is already history. No fucking wonder I’m back up to almost 200 pounds.
