Guh! I hate moving… Well, not really. I love moving but I hate the actual physical labour involved in such a task.
Even a full month after I’ve “moved in” I still find I’m moving stuff and unpacking. god it’s a pain in my arse. One wonders when (or even if) it will ever end.
So Patrick Swayze died tonight and rather than mourn or comment on the loss of an actor that I didn’t really care all that much about, all I could think was “This is what happens when you put Baby in a corner.”
Yup. I’m going to Hell… and I don’t mind one bit.
You ever get the feeling that time, that arbitrary, ephemeral concept just sort of exists to piss us the fuck off?
I mean honestly, if it weren’t for time I’d be happily ensconced in a book without a worry in the work. Or perhaps I’d be scribbling words on a page, forging headlong and onward in the novel in my head. Instead I sit here, Stumbling and typing this trying to wind down from another exhausting day when I could be happily sleeping next to the woman of my dreams…
Actually ya know what… fuck you lot. I’m going to bed. This post can wait.
(But in the interim…. The Trailer for “The Men Who Stare At Goats” is good. Watch it.)
Or is that your Jar is a door? I never know anymore and right this second I’m more than a little drunk so I don’t rightly care (and won’t apologize for any inonsistencies or smisspellings_).
Tam and I decided recently to budget our finances and start saving for a decent house and our trip to Rome (yeah forgot to mention we’ll be in Rome this time next month… WOOOO!). To that end we went shopping for some nice “jars” to decorate and use as our budgeting means. We’re not going to use our b edit or credit cards at all… or as little as possible and all our expesnes are run out of the jars. SO far it’s been an interesting experiment and I like the challenge that it presents.
Hopefully it’ll be a beneficial experience and we’ll be able to smash our collective debts into tiny pieces! Yarrr. As it is, I’m just glad that we’re both able to approach the whole monetary issue with rationality and without any of the problems that plague a lot of other couples. Hooray for getting lucky in that regard.
Wheee. Well this post was supposed to be longer but I’m now 3 shots behind and already feeling ti so I do believe that my irish arse is logging off to go drink itself into bed. WHeee!
Well, I had Jury selection this morning… and thankfully didn’t get picked. YAY for dodging a bullet! I’m quite glad that I wasn’t chosen because the trial was to last all next week and I wasn’t too thrilled with that idea. Besides that, and more importantly I probably wouldn’t have been chosen anyways because I wouldn’t have been able to stay unbiased due to the nature of the trial.
While I’m not a big fan of the whole jury process it was simple enough and I’m glad it’s there. Sure it’s inconvenient but in the end it serves the greater good. It also gave me a chance to sit beside a rather hot blonde during selection. She was chosen and I wasn’t.
Anyways. I must go for now. I have a lunch date with a rather attractive young woman of my accquaintance that I can’t be late for. Also my laptop battery is waving the red flag at me so I should go. The first reason is far more important. *grin*
Just a small update to say that I’ve gone and updated the blog to the latest version of WordPress (2.5) and there are a few things different on the backend. Still trying to fiddle with things and make sure all my plugins are compatible so you might see some lack of functionality in various things until they are all sorted out. Give it a few days is all I can suggest.
