Lawn Mowers

I bought a new lawn mower this weekend, as the grass was getting a little out of hand and I apparently did not start craigslisting nearly early enough to get a deal.  I settled on a pretty basic gas push mower that does mulching and rear bagging.  At the time I thought I got a fairly reasonable deal, since self-propelled mowers were significantly more expensive.

But then I came to work this morning, and found out that for only $70 more (disregard the price in this photo: I did not pay $250), Jon got a magic lawn mower that he definitely doesn’t have to push himself:

I built this hammock in only 412 steps, 2 months, and $135.

Back Online

A quick thanks to the very responsive and helpful support folks at Dreamhost for fixing up my DNS settings to bring this site back online very shortly after I reported it was down.

And apologies to readers for not noticing for a while… I haven’t had much to say lately, so I haven’t been visiting my own site that often either.
