I can happily report that I’ve accomplished 10 of 11 intentions I set on Monday!
If you count eating the pizza as support (and I definitely do), I accomplished helping @abbyo and @failspy with pizza-making on Monday. They made thin crust margarita-style pizza, and it was super tasty.
@legolad22 and @likeaboss joined me on Tuesday for a Razor scooter workshop. We disassembled one scooter completely, and the other two partially. As I detached some of the rustier, harder to move parts, Logan and Lescot used Simple Green and WD-40 to clean and lubricate the parts. We intend to continue work on the scooters next week.
One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest philosophy with @kingthanos was AWESOME. @likeaboss and @shadowjack joined Thanos and I to watch this classic. Everyone had great analysis and it was really interesting to see how everyone’s perception of McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) changed as the film progressed. We started off feeling like he was an antagonist, but ended up feeling empathy for him by the end.
In Wikitrails this week, we did a random wandering, ala version 1.0. Also, The Lorax joined us for a guest-star trail on Friday. We went from Wilhelm Reich to Arne Duncan and Lee Harvey Oswald to Michael Vick.
So Gueoguessr didn’t go as well as I’d hoped… we scored in the high 7,000’s, which was only slightly better than half of my intended goal from Monday. Declaring failure-
In Woodworking with @shadowjack this week, we began our bookshelf project. @kingthanos and I went to a lumber yard on 106th st. and 2nd ave to get some domestic birch plywood sheets. We actually wheeled them all the way back to the school on a dolly… really wish I had a picture or video to show from this. Anyway, Jack and I drew out our plans and made some initial cuts. Despite careful measurement, we couldn’t seem to get a straight edge and were baffled as to why… until we noticed that our T-square wasn’t square! So, I will be taking a trip to the hardware store this weekend to buy a new one so that we can continue this project next week.
That’s all I have time for this afternoon- Looking forward to a busy and exciting final week of 2014 @ALC that will feature a trip to see the third installment of the Hobbit trilogy.
With love and agility,
