The Wireless!

I moved into my new home today. I now live with Aunt Vicki and Uncle Ron. I am currently connected to the Barajas (unsecured) wireless network, and my signal strength is excellent.

The Wireless is back, everybody!

so, i took a shower this morning and as i closed the shampoo bottle after squeezing some shampoo into my hand, the cap snapped shut rather quickly causing a tiny bit of shampoo to shoot across the shower and land in my left eye. in case you are unaware of the effects of shampoo coming in contact with a person's eye, the effects are: pain. all kinds of different pain. shooting pain, stabbing pain, grating pain, stinging pain, numbing pain, burning pain, throbbing pain...all at once at first, and then alternating with each other at random intervals for the next half hour, at least.

anyway...that was at about 8:30 this morning. it's almost four hours later and my left eye is still bloodshot and every once in a while, it starts to sting and then a couple of little sudsy tears come out.

Morrison Strength...

This is the Morrison family lifting the 500lb wall-unit that Ryan built:

This is the Morrison family still lifting:

This is also the Morrison family lifting still:

And after all that, a word of advice from Kevin: "If you're lifting something that weighs 500 pounds, don't leave it on your shoulder, because if there's a sudden shift in weight and you have 500 pounds slam down on your shoulder...your shoulder comes out of its socket." Like this:

Note: It looks like a smile. It is. Kevin smiles sometimes when he's in terrible pain. Way to hang in there, Kevin.
