so the family left me to go camping. don't ask. work dumped a new project on me. the kind where you follow the instructions. and step 1 doesn't work. so you have to start an email trail to resolve the issue. which takes an hour. then step 2 doesn't work. so i had quite a few idle hours. and no one to give me chores. so i started making a cutting board. i've been planning it for a while. and i had all the necessary parts. projects like this involve getting out the saw. which is kinda like solving a 3d jigsaw puzzle. and it takes up the entire garage. so it's good to do when a car is going to be missing for a few days. anywho. i cut and glued and clamped and cursed. then went back to my job. great! step 3 fails. glue is dry. cut and glue and clamp and curse. step 4 fails. you can see where this is going. so anywho. the family returned (yay!) before i finished. so the car had to stay out of the garage for an extra night. the board needs to be sanded. but it's functional. it has a bread shaped indentation. slap the loaf in the hole. cut along the surface of the board. voila! a perfect slice. now i can cut ummy nummy home made bread as goodly as the beautiful and talented alisa.
