-As I was trying to fall asleep last night, a car drove through the complex blaring, of all things, Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is a Place on Earth." Now, I like "Heaven Is a Place on Earth." I'm reasonably sure I have it on my computer. It's just that it's not usually the kind of song you hear blaring out of a car at 11 at night. Needless to say, I was amused.
-I watched my boss test a 24V trip coil in a circuit breaker yesterday. It was easy enough; basically, he wired two 12V batteries to the coil to make sure the coil would do its job and trip the breaker. Even still, it was very cool. Electricity is nifty, folks!
-I don't think I mentioned this here, but we took the goober up to Canobie Lake Park for his birthday. I don't think there was a ride we put that child on that he didn't like. He does not, however, like getting splashed in the face, so there was something that happened that could have been a disaster. We were standing in line for the Boston Tea Party, which is a log flume-type ride whose sole purpose is to get you drenched. No lie; the entire ride is getting on a boat, going up a hill, and going down the hill, but the splash that occurs at the bottom of the hill is insane. No, seriously. It's so insane that certain parts of the line get drenched ... yes, you could be soaked by the time you even get on the ride.
This is very, very helpful on hot days, haha.
Anyway, Lucas wanted to watch the boat come down the hill so he climbed the little rope fence and I held him so he could watch. I really didn't think we'd get wet where we were, but all of a sudden, I looked up and was all, "Oh, shit." I didn't have time to warn him but I put my hand over his face to shield him as much as I could. He was surprised, but after a moment, he cracked up and said, "I want to do that again!"
Roberta and Allyson told me it was a nice save, haha.
Also, in the amusing stories from Canobie department, when we went on the actual log flume ride, the attendant told us to seat the tallest in the back. In the group of me, Allyson, Roberta, and Lucas, Allyson was the tallest. She's 5'2".
-Got my Once Upon a Time season three DVDs yesterday! Hell yes Captain Swan. ;)
