Pollstar just alerted me that Willie Nelson is playing Kahului, HI on November 19. Anybody wanna go? And, uh, have a boat?

I'm glad I got the deck surface done when I did: 8 of the 10 days in the weather.com forecast for A2 show rain expected.

When raindrops were hitting my head the other day, I thought how nice it felt; I've missed precipitation during this recent dry spell. Prob'bly won't feel that way in a fortnight, tho'.

I wish I'd gotten "juggling," but I'll take this result.

You are 'Latin'.

Even among obsolete skills, the tongue of the ancient Romans is a real anachronism. With its profusion of different cases and conjugations, Latin is more than a language; it is a whole different way of thinking about things.

You are very classy, meaning that you value the classics. You value old things, good things which have stood the test of time. You value things which have been proven worthy and valuable, even if no one else these days sees them that way. Your life is touched by a certain 'pietas', or piety; perhaps you are even a Stoic. Nonetheless, you have a certain fascination with the grotesque and the profane. Also, the modern world rejects you like a bad transplant. Your problem is that Latin has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?
