this is what i do on a rainy thursday: surf the web wirelessly from my living room couch in my underwear. sure, i could've put some pants on, and the colder weather definitely warranted some more clothes, but what's the fun in that?
after having an omelette for lunch, i realized i missed my hearing appointment to contest the handful of motorcycle parking tickets i got early this summer. it was scheduled for this morning so i went down to the cambridge city hall annex anyway, hoping they'd still hear my case, 3 hours later. the weather was foggy and by the time i got there i was already spray coated in mist. there was no problem meeting the traffic officer. i confessed i missed my appointment but she said it was okay. out of the 3 overdue tickets, i managed to cancel just one and ended up paying the rest ($60).
back at home i performed another emergency water change, this time on my male guppies tank, after i saw them all congregating near the top of the aquarium, a sure sign that something was wrong with the water. i noticed the biowheel wasn't spinning because the inflow tube was clogged with dead plant debris, so that might've spiked the nitrate level (like swimming in urine). i siphoned out half the water and replace it with the reserve from the homemade cistern. afterwards things returned back to normal.
