After many weeks I finally got my pocket watch working again. It isn't easy messing with all those small parts. At least I'll be able to know what time is it when I go outside. Luckily I didn't have much reason to go outside with the summer vacation.
With what kind of clothes you're wearing it? I had one until I lost it. Now I'm using a crappy second hand watch. Not as fancy but it's easier to combne with more casual clothes. Also, it's annoying trying to dig a pocket watch from your pockets when you're wearing too slim jeans.
This is quite easily fixed.

Men should not wear 'too slim jeans'

Just admit it. You'd like to have jeans like that too. It's allright. We'll take care of you. :-*

Next trend in fashion: bodybuilder skinny jeans.

Based on the "fashion" we see today, I somehow think that could happen in the future.

Gender roles are boring. Many people don't really conform to them but for some reason seem to identify with them. I've never really understood why.

I conform to them because wearing those jeans would require me to castrate myself in order to make space and wear them comfortably.

Even otherwise, I am dedicated to keeping my apparatus as God gave it to me.

Has it really?
buckets of water can be dangerous when you drop them on your head.  Especially if you have been recently vaccinated.

That doesn't bother me. It is just the annoyance of millions of people dumping water on their head for no other reason than someone said it is for ALS.

Hey, why doesn't everyone stick a boot up their bum for hotchkins lymphoma?  It will help about as much.

Kermit the Frog's, Charlie Sheen's and George W. Bush's challenges were quite amusing.

I just spent the last week in Corning! Did you make it to Market Street while you were in town? And what lakes did you visit?

Remember, TheMathematician, this quiz makes up 15% of your final grade.

My sharemates are playing Lord of the Rings. I'd love to join them, but I haven't played video games for years and quite frankly I was never very good at it.  :-\

Press buttons really fast. That way you'll win.

So I went to DL, despite a headache.

So as things progress, I keep seeing this flash of light out of the corner of my eye.  I wear glasses so I have -zero- clear peripheral vision, so I kept thinking 'is this my headache....am i seeing things?'  it was not consistent but kept happening, leaving me thinking i might need to go to the Dr. afterwards.

DL winds to a close, and as people go up to kiss the Cross and get a blessing, I see it again!  Only this time I can see that its at ground level and is attached to a small child, one of our Deacon's girls.  She has on new shoes that flash if she steps down hard enough!

I talked to the Diakonissa afterwards and told her my tale of thinking i was either very ill or insane, and we both had a good laugh. Evidently she didn't want to let the little one wear -those- shoes to Church, but they would not have arrived if she didn't.

D, who is very glad she isn't more damaged then previously thought

A couple of Paschas ago, one of my kids switched shoes in the car and we didn't realize it until she started flashing in the otherwise darkened church.
