Now I’m just goofing off

I’m in the store now. I just realized that if I open up my bathroom door and the covering over the secret bathroom entrance (large hole in the office wall) I’ve got a clear view of the front door. Problem solved.

Anyhoo, it’s pretty slow here so I’m trying to make my own fun. I found a website called wonderhowto.com. The site has all kinds of  informational videos  about everything from glass pipe making to hacking into vending machines. I made a pipe the other day from one of the videos.


Having tried a few more since this one, I think this is going to be one of those things that works the first time you try it and then never again. I think my pipe making career is going to be cut short. Bummer. I’ll save that hacking into the vending machine video for later. Maybe I’ll be really good at that.

In other news…


Caffeinated  jelly beans! I found these at the bike store when I went in to buy a helmet the other day. They’re not the best tasting things but you have to give the Jelly Belly co. credit for coming up with such a super idea. I’m biking kind of a lot now, on my heavy bike with the giant seat. I probably have enough energy to get by without Sport Beans, but why would I want to do that? They’re 15% off in the Jelly Belly Shop. Hopefully they’ll start making them with sedatives too…or anti-depressants. Jelly beans are the perfect vehicle for anything.

So, speaking of biking, yesterday I was winding my way thru the Arboretum (many acres of forest and prairie and marsh land owned by the University) and I saw not one, not two, not three, but four wild turkeys wandering down the road. Here is a terrible picture of two of them:


A car came along right after I took this and the turkeys plodded off into the woods. I tried to take more pictures of them but once they were in the woods they were all but invisible. Maybe they were ghost turkeys. In any event, that was quite exciting, seeing the wild animals. And they didn’t walk up to you and demand food, either, like all the ducks and the sparrows downtown. Which is good because I can’t resist a mooching animal–and all I had on me at the time was a bag of Sport Beans.

I think you should give the squirrels Sport Beans. Talk about bioterrorism…

That’s a dangerous game. The Jelly Belly site is out of the caffienated ones now, dammit. I should have ordered the other day.
