Fun with crisco

Yesterday my mom bought me a nice grey suit at The Bon (big sale), then we went to Home Depot and got a Webber gas grill and had steaks for dinner.  Before cooking the meat, the cast-iron grill had to be seasoned, so I had fun with criscoe.


I also got an oil filter and a lightbulb for my radio, so I can see the numbers on the dial when changing stations in the dark.  If I get a computer in my Merc, I'm wondering if I should leave the dash and push-button radio original, or replace the radio with a flat screen.  Here's a big (500 kB) picture of the console:  Mercury Marqui console.


On the way home I saw a rabbit running down the side of the road, it was slightly smaller than a cat.

I fixed the doornob so now it is either always retracted, or works properly. Usually it would stick about halfway retracted, and no amount of turning the handle could budge it any further. Now you can open the door just by unlocking the deadbolt and pushing.

Why is it that even when I try to have zero expectations or hopes, the few that creep in get crushed and it feels just as bad as if I had as much hope as a crazy lunatic.
