We had a rather busy afternoon today. Rob, Spring and I spent a couple of hours
having lunch and picking up a mattress.
Lunch was at Stir Crazy's, with the misspelled Chinese words but the food is good.
We then drove to pick up Rob's hearse. Yes, he owns a hearse. A 1972
Cadillac Hearse. The thing is huge. The thing is purple. The thing is
feared and hated by the Condo Commandos so Rob parks it at a local storage
We drive over to the auto repair
shop to pick up the mattress. They were rather amused to see a hearse
pull up, and even more amused when we loaded the mattress into the back of
it (it almost laid flat—yes, the hearse is that big).
Then home, a quick unload of the mattress, and then back to the storage
place before the Condo Commandos give us any grief.
Lots of work on the code that drives the Boston
Diaries. Lots of clean up work.
Late in the evening, Spring and I met Mark and Kelly at a restaurant
for dinner, then over to Mark's house to watch a movie.
We ended up watching The Creature Wasn't Nice (aka
“Naked Space”). It starred Cindy Williams and Leslie
Neilsen as crew members aboard an exploration starship that is being
terrorized by a large slimy, gelatinous creature. It's amusing, but it just
doesn't sink to the levels of badness that Plan 9 from Outer Space
achieves that makes it worth the trouble of seeing.
Wasn't Nice isn't a film I would go out of my way to see, but if it's
there, and there's nothing else worth watching, then yea, I'll watch it.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
