first day of my weekend. whee. doc is out retrieving the car. he's having it towed back because of the lack of DL. he won't chance driving it and getting pulled over. smart doc.
i'm in a farscape rut. i keep putting the tapes on. only watching TV when doc is home. this should last only a couple of days. then i'll be back to my regular self.
i asked doc to consider getting me "empire strikes back" if he sees it at walmart. i don't think it will happen, but just so he knows, if he wants to buy one, that is the one i want first. "first" hee, the one i want. period. though the box set of all three is $36.88 at amazon.com. which would be cheaper than buying the DVDs separately. but doc said we don't have any DVD money since he's getting the car towed back.
and really, i don't need it. i just didn't want him to make a impulse purchase and bring home "jedi", because i really don't like that one. i like parts of it. but not enough to own it over the other two.
i wonder if there is any coffee made. i feel like coffee today. i'm already drinking arizona raspberry tea. i'll make coffee when the tea runs out. iced tea, a new found love. yum.
i used to drink arizona tea back before it got purchased by a bigger company and the flavor i drank was "tropical" and was a bunch of fruit flavors. it was good. but it went away. the raspberry is almost as good. i just recently found that out. now i get that as a treat.
aside from the two small boxes that got ruined and held very little of value, every other cardboard box was on top of a plastic tote or ice chest. so no more loss and easy cleaning. that's what i'm talking about!
we were smart at some point. maybe having learned from the flooded basement back in philadelphia. whatever, i lost a photograph to the broken water heater and that seems to be it.
hits to my podcast blog are blowing away hits to any other part of my site. that is pretty cool. i also noticed that people are actually going to the pages i have "stop poking me lady" up on the site. that is pretty cool. i spent hours formatting it.
the car is home safe and sound. doc and i are giddy with the sense of accomplishment. now doc and henry are asleep on the couch in the most cute way.
they are replacing our water heater. so we emptied out the storage closet. my 6 foot folding leg table is wet, the water soaked into the wood and crept up it about six inches. i lamented that i should have put it up and swapped out the table i'm working on when i thought of it. doc thought i was mad at him over this since he was the one who nixed the swapping out plan. but i wasn't. just a coulda shoulda woulda.
i just made the best nachos with taco meat left over from the other night. oh how happy are my tongue and tummy.
i was going to record a reading while doc was gone. oops. he's going out later, i can try to remember to do it then. if not i'll have to do it while he's home tomorrow. eep. i can read in front of a lot of people, but reading in front of one is hard for me.
oh why do i want to chain smoke? i have no control. since i stopped smoking pot regularly i've been smoking a butt load of cigarettes. doc had been taking notice, to my annoyance, but since we started buying cartons instead of three packs at a time, he doesn't notice so much.
i put him into a babysitter role too often. though i've been better the past week or more. eating on my own, washing and brushing my teeth without prompting. washing my hair. the little things that i don't think to do that he reminds me of and often ends up nagging me about because i don't listen.
i just don't listen. mostly. i eventually clue in, but how long that lasts is how long my memory of it lasts. that's why i write such seemingly mundane stuff. it isn't mundane to me. and later on it helps me remember what was going on and how i was doing. the stupid details hold the best clues for me. it doesn't make it at all interesting to read, and on the outside i'm sure it isn't.
the episode of farscape is on where zaan dies. very sad. i watched the one where aeryn died earlier. or rather, listened to it as it played. like i'm doing now.
i think i'll go play with photoshop for a while. i found all those graphics disks i had. time to play.
we have a new water heater. or a water hotter, depending upon if you have been burned yet by it. hee.
we're drinking coffee and not eating and watching private benjamin. i have challenged him to a game of star wars monopoly. it is fun to see how long it takes for us to inadvertantly switch playing pieces. and notice after. we may be too hopped up for that. i hear another pot brewing.
he's fun on friday nights. especially tonight with the coming home of the car and all.
the painters painted all over the front door (which, you may remember me mentioning is blue and the paint of the building is not) and the handrail on the stairs. they plastic-ed every step and couldn't cover the banister? or at least paint it all the way down? one or the other. the workmen noted to us that complaints were coming in about it already. not that the workmen can do anything about it, the painting was contracted out. silly to call the workmen about it, unless i guess if you have no idea who to call. and the people in the office aren't really what you would call responsive to the voicemail left. you have to catch a human in there to get anything done and have any hope of answers, slim though that hope may be.
wow, 20 gigs of music. i can't even blame doc's collection or music videos for that, it's almost all my music. maybe 19 gigs of it is my stuff. i recovered so many treats that just aren't around, at least i haven't found them. and not all of it is 80s music. some of it is from the early 90s. there's even some soundtrack stuff in there. run lola run, fight club, desperado, fifth element. i kept bugging doc with fifth element songs. it isn't bad enough the man sleeps to it, heh.
