For a while now I've been hanging the name Christopher Guest on the guy who plays Chuck McGill, Jimmy's brother in Better Call Saul, as well as various bits in Best In Show, Coneheads, This Is SPinal Tap etc. This is incorrect, his name is Michael McKean. Christopher Guest is McKean's costar in This Is Spinal Tap as Nigel Tufnel, also Count Rugen in The Princess Bride. Is AirBnB driving up rents and home prices? How much? How long should you wait for a housing market turn? Depending where you are in ... (...more)

Metro's best smrtfon under $100 might be the ZTE Zmax Pro. For the amount of use I put my fōn to, it's worth getting a bit spendy. I bought into the smrtfon evolution in early '14 with a 4GB, $30, 3.8" Samsung Galaxy Exhibit. I'd have to consult my old debit card records to be sure, but I think I retired it in early '16 for the 8GB, 5" Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime. I beefed that up with a 64GB SD card maybe 6 months ago? I'd assumed that I would be able to move apps to the SD storage and alleviate the annoy... (...more)

30g protein Rockin' Refuel and 200mg caf for breakfast ~8:30 when I arrived at work. The buffalo sauce yesterday irritated my guts, woke a couple times in the night thinking I might need to sip some soy milk but ultimately the discomfort wasn't quite enough to propel me out of bed. It's interfering with my hunger sense though. 19g 7-eleven turkey+ham sub and some Nutter Butters for lunch. Rcvd payment for the Deities and Demigods book. If I was regenerating my gaming collection I suppose I might pay a... (...more)

Miss Cupcake's son and daughter-in-law arrived late Mon night. Tue: took them to Mulligan's Beach House for breakfast, visited Blowing Rocks Preserve. The iconic rocks were sandlogged and the 2 blue crab nests we knew of were abandoned, but we saw some of the little black crabs on the sides of the boardwalk posts. And the largest orb-weaver I've ever seen, with a web right across the west entry to the butterfly garden. We noped out of crossing under, and backtracked to the other entrance. Mailed out E.-'s ...
