1,000lb Max Capacity Camel

So ease up on that straw.

Blegh.  It's nearing the end of the semester, so there's that, but a goodly amount of other little annoyances have decided this is the week to stack up.  Midway shipped a 12ga mag extension, which doesn't fit the new shotty for some reason, and the Galco holster I thought I'd try out does not work with M&Ps with the thumb safety, so I was looking forward to the post office at this time of year.  Add a handful of other recent issues with various parcel services and I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't just hand deliver everything.  Less stress and I'd get to see the country!

Unfortunately I got off to a late and extra grouchy start as the little Chevy did it's party trick of draining the battery as it sat overnight.  It likes to do this on average about once a month, regardless of anything being left plugged in.  The battery's less than a year old too.

No big deal, just pop the hood and jump it, and it's fine for another month.  Except winter is upon us, and apparently neither car at the house will have a working hood release until April when the cable thaws out.  Nothing like crawling under a car in the snow and gravel to wedge your hand between the radiator and hood support to trip the latch when you're already grumpy.

There's a handful of other things, but it's not worth dwelling on.  I just felt the need to vent a little.  I'm going to sit down and read a book and sip on some coffee before choir and then play games the rest of the day.

Guns and Coffee Slingers

A Dutch Bros. employee violated company policy and shot a bad guy during his late night shift with his concealed carry piece.  Rather than getting all butt hurt, his boss gave him 30 days paid leave, picked up the tab for counceling, and the company is going over their "no weapons" policy to see if it truely is the best idea.

I kind of wish there was one around here, I'd go buy a cup.
