Getting up enough energy to disconnect my useless old DW (that's dishwasher, not dear wife) in preparation for installing a new one later this week.

Was horribly woken up early this morning by reflux...have been in the couch since, online off and on, trying to keep myself upright. Now I have to go do laundry, no choice, I'm out of uniforms.

You should see the beauty I picked up yesterday It's about 100 years old and looks like it was made yesterday. The craftsmanship is outstanding.
Thanks, Pacanis. You were right -- see Timothy's website.

Would "Ack-Ack" also describe the sound whenever you bring another gun into the residence?

There's a pill for that
I had to take one the other night after that spaghetti. Something about spaghetti sauces and tacos can give me heartburn four hours after I go to bed.

Yeah, that was a good link, tinlizzie.

Actually, it's our favorite line from the movie classic, "Mars Attacks!". The aliens have a 2 syllable vocabulary, consisting of "Ack-Ack". We use it frequently.

Oh yuck. Nothing goes better with laundry than reflux. Feel better, PF!

I am trying your Drunken Beans, but with a can of Miller Lite and some canned pintos. Have all the other accoutremonts.

that's how you you can tell you've had a great vacation, dawg--when being home again is a brutal shock, followed by drudgery and misery....(welcome back)

Yes, Vit, drudgery and misery...along with brutal shock. Well put.

Luckily, I had just enough Puffs Plus, Wet Wipes, and Purel on the planes so as to not spread more drudgery and misery to anyone else.

I plan to track down whoever D and M'ed me and sneeze on him/her.
