Chilling after a 20 hour work day. The kids sick, which means I'm going to lose my 1 day off to taking care of her. She was super sweet to me today, makes it easier.

Spent 6 hours with my hands above my shoulders painting the ceiling of the shop, going to be sore tomorrow. I didn't even paint the whole damn thing. 2/3 of the way through my arms ceased to cooperate and my painting just kept getting slower an messier. Called it a night before I made things worse.

I'm tired and it's late, free association time.... partying with gay men taught me not be afraid to dance with my hands above my shoulders. Straight guys almost never let their hands reach above their shoulders when they dance. A tip to straight guys, try it, it's liberating.

Little remodel on the shop is going slow but well. I can only get long periods of work done on Tuesdays after I close but trying to make that time count.

Pole roller, dude. One of the discoveries of my 30s was that if you buy the cheapest tool you can to do the job, you will hate the job... but if you buy the one that's cool you'll actually enjoy it.

Buy cheap, buy twice.

I was pole rolling, it's a tall drop down ceiling, pain in the ass.

Some people said I should spray it but I've never used one and I didn't want to have a fiasco because I need to be open at 6am.

I hate drop tile

I had to replace troffers last week. I did one and let the contractors do the other two. It sucked.

I want to go back in time and shout at whoever told me not to dance with my hands above my head/shoulders/knees/toes. Unfortunately I would then be shouting at a 16 year old, which makes hypothetical-time-travelling-me a complete dick.
