I'm several hours premature, but here's wishing everybody a Happy New Year. May the new one be better than the old.

I'm on vacation until next year, suckers!

I'm Still Alive

Twittering some, but mostly haven't had much to say, lately.

Here's an update on what's up with me, then:
1. I picked up my carry permit around the middle of last month. I have been strapping on my Hi-Power in the evenings during the week, or as soon as I'm dressed on the weekends. No point in bothering on weekday mornings, because I may as well take it off before leaving for work: no concealed deadly weapons in the office. (I expect they will balk at the idea of open carry as well.) C'est la vie, as they say.
2. My AR-15 is almost completely tar[t|d]ed up with various bits. I've replaced the butt stock, the pistol grip, the receiver plate, the rear sight, the handguard, the triggerguard and safety selector, added a bolt catch extension, a red dot sight and magnifier, and a vertical foregrip, which I'm currently evaluating against a finger stop. I'd still like a light and laser, and fully intend to stick one of these on it for giggles. I have a few small, internal parts on the way, right now.
3. I have dropped my tea intake down from a quart every day to a single large cup, about a 75% drop, starting not quite two weeks ago. Exceptions made here and there, with no change in soda consumption. Wouldn't have stayed awake past dinnertime last night without a large bowl of matcha, in fact. On the whole, though, feeling pretty good.
4. Playing a lot of Borderlands. Because I spent last week on vacation, I have now spent more time in Borderlands over the past two weeks than at work over the same time period. That's a game that's going to sink a lot of GPAs.

I ordered a vertical foregrip, muzzle device, and magwell plug from LaRue Tactical last Friday. The order arrived today. Also packed in the box was a bottle opener, a ball cap, two bumper stickers, and ... barbecue seasoning?

On a similar note, OpticsPlanet has very good customer service. They only gave me a tiny flashlight, though.

And, An Auspicious Start To The Day

When I went back to bed after hitting the snooze button this morning, the bracket attaching the foot of the bed to the frame cracked. Gonna need to do something about that this evening, as I can't sleep on the bed the way it is.
