Getting dirty and working with your hands

I got the hot tub cleaned up in pretty good time right after work, and I'm satisfied with the results. I probably should've let the cleaner stuff dry (water was a little filmy when I started to fill), but whatever.

It felt good to do something a little physical, even if it was brief. I hate exercise for the sake of exercise, and I'm not sure I'll ever overcome that. But when I engage in physical activity for a purpose, that's cool.

Staying in the physical world, I tore down the remainder of the CoasterDynamix model that I built more than three years ago. With the new floorless train, I'm going to try and build a nifty compact model and take it to work. This kind of thing is also very satisfying because you're making something with your hands. I see why Tyler likes to build stuff out of wood, why Diana likes to knit, etc. There's something very real about making stuff with your hands.

If only we could hand our loved ones a blob of code we worked hard to write.

Or to the people who use the sites!

Yes, we pay you even without seeing the code.
