Two Things

  1. I broke a blood vessel in my left thumb. How? I was attempting to blow out a four-wick candle by clapping my hands together a la The Incredible Hulk. I succeeded on the second attempt, but I believe the blood vessel ruptured on the first. The pad of my left thumb is now slightly swollen and vaguely purple in color.
  2. The Craftsman ½-hp belt drive garage door opener I bought on Sunday is incompatible with our garage. There is a support beam approximately 101 inches from the door that will prevent the opener from being installed. Required horizontal clearance: approximately 125 inches. Dammit. There may be some hope, though. The installer told me that Genie garage door openers (available at the nearby Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse) don’t require as much space as the Craftsman models.

  1. The movie stunts that you probably shouldn’t try has now been increased by yet one more. Haven’t seen the movie, it’s not even in queue.

    Guess I don’t even need to try a garage door opener, do I? Not that a car could even fit in my garage right now. In fact, I had to kick out one of the mowers out so I can walk in mine.

    I was drawing more on the comic book Hulk as my inspiration, though I’m sure the movie Hulk could do the same thing.

    I had the same problem, but I spent an hour or so moving stuff from one side of the garage to the other before buying the garage door opener, and it’s almost to the point where I can park Laura’s car and still get at the snowblower.

    I can almost move things from one side of the garage to the other by pivoting. It doesn’t matter what side of the garage my stuff is on, my car ain’t getting in.
