Lyda here. I took the day off today, which is why I’m writing this in the middle of the day.
The plan was that I was getting ready for the garage sale and cleaning for tonight’s guests. Some friends were going to come over tonight for a potluck, but they’ve all cancelled, so I cleaned the bathroom for nothing. Oh, except for us, I guess.
Yes, I’m supposed to be searching for an apartment / preparing for the garage sale tomorrow come one come all / packing everything I own / pushing the Resident Sith Master to pack up the stuff on his shelves so that we can sell the shelves in the garage sale.
But hey, I did talk to one guy about an apartment. And I did clean the bathroom. So I deserve a break. It’s almost lunch time, and I have a friend from work coming over after her off-site meeting to pick up some items she’s buying for her grandkids.
So, now it’s later. RSM did clear off the shelves, and the coworker picked up her goodies. I packed up the desk area, although not the computer obviously. The desk being sold is cleared off, so the rest can wait.
Now we’re taking a well-earned break. RSM has a friend coming over soon and I need to go run some errands – get some small bills to make change tomorrow, and post signs. Shit, have to make signs.
I was going to go look at apartments, but it looks like that will have to happen after the sale. Or Sunday. Sunday is good for apartment hunting, right?
Meanwhile, here are some random items I’ve been thinking about posting, which have nothing in common except the pig-licking. Y’all know I’m all about the random.
Wow, I must be tired. I haven’t digressed once.
A couple of blogs to check out:
- Small Dog Syndrome – funny post about pregnancy scares, with illustrations as well as funny office posts
- The Bloggess – tons of funny posts
And then there’s this, which just has everything a Pollyanna could ask for in a pig-licking link:
- Deep fried butter & the competition for outrageous fried food recipes at the Texas state fair – priceless quote by Abel Gonzalez Jr. (inventor of deep fried butter):
“It’s funny, because being at the state fair is the total opposite of being a computer analyst,” he said. “I finally kind of figured out that I was in the wrong field. …”
And then there’s this:
- From the May 2009 “Country Living” magazine: “For just $92, you can spend the night inside the world’s biggest beagle” which is in Idaho.
Is it just me, or do you enter the beagle through his… uh… rear?
I guess that’s the end, folks.
Hey, I couldn’t have resisted for all the deep-fried butter in Texas.
