So I survived the curse after all. For some reason I thought my Dad was born in 1920... turns out I found his record in the Social Security Death Index, and he was born in 1924, which means he died about two months after reaching age 47. So I've already outlived him by 3 years. One totally irrational fear goes out the window... I might still die today, but the shortened lifespans of my Grampy and Dad won't necessarily have anything to do with it.

I got my rope light up 2 or 3 days ago, but due to various problems it hasn't worked all night yet. I already solved one electrical problem, but now I've got to secure it better. Then I can check if it's visible from the highway. Eventually I'll probably make it so it lights only at night, but at 2.5 watts it's not a priority.
