Random Stuffs of Wednesday Madness

Hey, y'all! I have been in the mood to write, but I've got no ideas. Zip. None. Any suggestions?

I just finished reading "Sanditon" by Jane Austen and Another Lady. Oh my lord. It was hilariously bad. No wonder the "Another Lady" didn't put her name on it. It's like she was writing a parody of Austen, rather than trying to finish her work.

Unfortunately, I'm a slow learner at times. As soon as I get my hands on it, I plan to read the posthumously completed Dorothly L. Sayers Wimsey/Vane novel. Here's hoping the second author on this one does a better job.

Speaking of posthumous, my current favorite music group is E.S. Posthumous. I can't get enough.

I skipped my Masochism Catechism class at the YMCA two weeks in a row. I only do that class once a week and the couple of days I do Pilates. Monday I dragged myself back to the M.C. class. I did ok. Until the next day. Holy Moly! I thought I was gonna die. Still not sure if I will live. Even my armpits are sore. My big toe is sore. Everything in between is in pain.

Don't you love the super-creepy Verizon "dead zone" commericals? "The towels are kinda scratchy!" Haaa!

I'm thinking I would enjoy hanging out with Nicolas Cage. I like his taste in movies. And he named his kid after Superman. What's not to like?

My live-in model deserted me this week. Dang kid. Decided to spend her spring break on some sort of mission-trip thing. Geeze. I had to resort to using the tripod on Saturday to take pictures in the snow.

See? See the snow? No, really, it's there. Look again! (Hi, Mom!)

Jackson has not been living right. That's the only reason I can think of for our last few months of homeowner hell. The heater is working again (just in time for spring). We have a new dishwasher and a new washing machine. I'm about to pay off the plumber and a couple of local small business ventures are being kept afloat by ongoing repairs at our place. And now I have to take Earl the Truck in to the truck doctor. Argh! I really hope Jackson turns over a new leaf soon.

At least we're doing our part to keep the economy afloat.

Darn nice of you to work so hard to keep the economy going......I know I'm doing my part. We just bought a mint green 2009 VW Beetle. It's all mine, until we have to decide between car payments and feeding the kids. Decisions, decisions, decisions....

Talk about a rock and a hard place, dust bunny!

While I was on my Wednesay advice call to O.Bama, he said to tell you thanks for doin' your part on the B.A.ilout. ....just before he broke into uncontrollable laughter.

Here's the improv approach to writing. Write down the first sentence that enters your head. Make a story out of it. (I get 10% if it sells)

I see the snow! Wow, impressive. Really. We would have taken a picture, too.

I think you should write creepiest critter you've ever seen.

Love the shot, Rach! Is that snow on the ground? Or just pretty small flowers?

When y'all get through doing all the honeydo's, will you consider coming to Midland and helping me?

Princess of Everything (and then some) said...

You are a SNOW BUNNY!! *howls with laughter* I am so going to start calling you that!

I do love the pic you took!

And I am so tired of hearing about how your arm pits hurt!

Those Jill Paton Walsh Harriet Vane/Lord Peter books are pretty good, you won't feel dirty, I promise!

I can so see a TV Pilot about this crazy photo taking Probation Officer = NO, that's real life. I'm out of ideas too.

I can so relate to this post on multiple levels. For starters I met with the trainer at the Y today and added a couple of new strength exercises. I fully expect my armpits and a bunch of other stuff to hurt lots tomorrow.

Second, currently both toilets are stopped up. I got the flow of water stopped and floor cleaned up, but this is bigger than a plunger issue. G&T is on his way home with a snake. If that doesn't work, we call the plumber. So much for living within our budget this month. Thanks alot Dave Ramsey.

P.S. Gifted & Talented to the rescue - no plumber bill this time! :-)

SpookyRach said...

Way to go, G&T!

I'm cautiously optimistic that Jackson might have cured our most recent problem without benefit of plumber. Fingers seriously crossed.

Okay, I'm late to the party here, but just want to say I think your hair looks great in this picture. Haven't seen you style it that way before.

Thanks, DB. I've let the perm grow out for now. Back to it's natural state of straight and flat as a board. ha!
