My jobs as Greensboro’s only transvestite Hooter’s waitress and a featured dancer at Copa Rocka Cantina keep me pretty busy. What little spare time I have is spent managing the Hooter’s Female Server Orthodontia and Labial Reduction Foundation and I’m setting up a scholarship fund for the Puerto Rican adult entertainers who have lots of free time during the day.
At home, the lettuce has finally gone to seed, the tomatoes and onions are coming in and we should have beans, squash and cukes in a couple of weeks. The Wife purchased a tented gazebo with mosquito netting where she spends her precious little free time reading. I’ve surrounded it with geraniums for increased protection and they are lovely.
The Wife is on the Medifast diet and is shedding weight rapidly. Each night before I go to work, I prepare her a salad or grilled veggies with meat or fish, sans salt. It is also having an effect on my waistline.
She recently purchased a Windows 7 Lenovo PC with an Intel i3. We installed it yesterday, retiring her Windows XP AMD Athlon and successfully leapfrogging the infamous Windows Vista. The old machine has been relegated to website duty, for which it is well-suited.
I’m loving Neal Stephenson‘s Cryptonomicon on the Kindle. One of its several plot lines is the story of the unit in WWII which hop-scotched the Western hemisphere setting up bogus observation posts providing the Nazis with plausible evidence to keep them from learning we’d cracked their Enigma codes. It is very droll with anecdotes of fake latrines and radio rooms redolent with chicken bones, beer bottles and cig butts. Considerable time is spent explaining the art of cryptography, then and now.
