Ironing helps us play!

So, I can sometimes be a very stereotypical boy. I'm not the tidiest or most home-makery, though I'm not terrible at either, either.

Every once in a while though, I am startled by information seemingly foreign to me. I recently went to London to attend my sister's wedding, and was trying to make myself look somewhat presentable. And so I was ironing my pants, something they were in sorely need of.

I knew that you're supposed to put water in the iron and that it helps 'cause steam comes out of the little holes at the bottom, if you put the iron on the right settings. But I guess it's one of those things that I didn't think about.

What I also didn't think about was that there was a little push button on the iron that was labeled "spray" which I had no idea why it was there. So, what the heck, I pushed it, and was rewarded with a little squirt of water from the top of the iron, getting my pants all damp.

Okay, no big deal. I'll just iron it, and it'll get the water out. But WOW! It made the wrinkles go away!

Yeah, okay, not so amazing. But it's something that a dumb boy who never irons anything never knew about.

Let me sum up.

Yeah, so I've been not blogging for a bit too long. Let's see...

Well, most of this past two plus weeks have been me dealing with allergies. They've been particularly bad this year, but they've been easing off in the last few days, and now I'm just all around phleghmmy.

Two weekends ago, I was in London for my sister's wedding. The weather was gorgeous. The train ride was comfortable and on time. The ceremony was short and sweet. I'll have some pictures up on my space on 23 soonish, I hope.

I'm well into Japanese class now. My second lecture was last night. They got right back into it, and my retention of things from 101 is just awful. Review, review, review.

Work has been busy. We upgraded a thing, and it broke several things. Good news is that I'm the guy that has the knowledge and inclination to fix it. While the work itself isn't necessarily the most fun thing, it's a nice feeling to know that I'm comfortable enough with the knowledge and environment to do something about it. I guess I'm settling in here (after what, two years?)

I've been biking more. And since Sportsworld is selling off all its bits, climbing less. I'm sure there's other news. I can't think of anything specific off the top of my head though.
