England in the Spring

I think I have moss growing in my ears.

Here I sit in the home office (yes, I am, in fact, at home in DC) looking at a sunny sky. This is the second day that this is happened. I’m not sure what to make of it. Frankly, I was beginning to forget what DC was actually like. I mean, this cool wet weather was reminding me of my time in the UK and not the hot swampy place we call home.

Speaking of homes, it seems that a great number of my friends and List members have just bought new ones. With that comes the compulsive need to completely change them. Mitre saws are purchased. Drills are charged. Butt-cracks are shown. It’s a glorious experience.

Here’s a few tips for those of you about to embark on some home improvement tasks:

1) Don’t tug on that – you never know what it is attached to.

2) Working with electricity is fun. Just don’t pee of exposed wires. For that matter, don’t touch them either.

3) Fingers. Keep them clear of the spinning blade at all times.

4) Air-compressed nail guns are not to be used to shoot your brother or significant other… okay maybe once or twice, but no more than that.
