  •   vonslatt Alas, my family is so confident of my ability to repair things that they continued to do laundry even though the dryer's motor is fried. 3w
  •   tensorflux Not just a problem with bearings? 3w
  •   vonslatt @tensorflux the motor frame is expoxied together and the bushings press in from the inside. Fortunately, a new motor assembly is only $49 on Amazon. 3w
  •   tensorflux Well that's convenient! 3w

vonslatt Plump Man burn was not nearly as spectacular as last year's fearsome maelstrom of fire. 4w
  •   vonslatt Plus he took *forever* to fall. 4w

  •   sfslim So bummed I missed you. Are you still on playa? 1mon
  •   vonslatt Yeah me too! I'm afraid we're back in Reno. We made several attempts to find you, @mermalady and @skyofindigo to no avail, I guess it just wasn't meant to happen this year. Daughter had a blast and @ladyvonslatt enjoyed herself too. 1mon
  •   vonslatt Also: fuck yeah 3 hour exodus! BXB4LYFE! 1mon
  •   mermalady Ah well :( stopping in SF perchance? 4w
  •   vonslatt @mermalady alas no. But I think I'll plan on a trip there in 2015, too many people I need to see! 4w
