Leavey, Mummy, MCSA, Carpentry

Two movies, and exam, and home maintenance.

"Megan Leavey" is a "based on a true story" story about a two soldiers, one of whom was a dog. It's well done, and not more manipulative than one would expect. I enjoyed it a great deal.

"The Mummy" is an object lesson in what happens when a movie is expected to accomplish more than the material can handle. The movie is entertaining and well made, but pushed off balance because the protagonist is overshadowed by the fact that her sidekick is played by a mega-star.

I took the second Microsoft exam on June 15, passed it, and now have a shiny new MCSA that I have no idea what to do with. Go, me.

We have had racoons in the attic for a while, in a dead space under the eaves. I have not had time or energy to open up the space and deal with them, until this week. Now I have a hatch into the space, and the process of chasing away the critters has begun. The first salvo has been to clean up a lot of the debris, and then saturate the area with home-made pepper spray. We shall see. Eventually, the critters will be gone, and I will have to have someone do the necessary repairs.
