Feb. 24th, 2011 10:17 pm Work crap

I am sorry that I did not realize that framing had been added to my list of responsibilities. If I had been informed of that, I would have put aside the hanging and shipping and futile printing to do the framing.

I will do what you tell me. I do not wish to deal with any printing/advertising/press issues short of getting them to the press or printing. I clearly have no idea of layout/text/numbers.

If my fiancée is not willing to cut the plexiglass for the Hallmans you need to either find someone else to trim the plexi or authorize Kathy to order plexiglass cut to size.

Jan. 20th, 2009 12:44 pm "Vacation"

I cannot believe that I scheduled myself to go to Maryland in January. Tomorrow, in fact. My five year old niece had been cast as Greta in a local production of Sound of Music. So I bought my tickets, not even thinking about my flight being the day after the inauguration. So after I bought my non-refundable plane tickets she was sacked, couldn't concentrate. So now I will be in the arctic cold. I would never have chosen this. My sister has put a deck on their very expensive house since I was there last. I would have liked to be able to sit on it and drink coffee, but nooooo.

Jan. 5th, 2009 04:26 pm Plumbing update

We knew the house wasn't great shakes when we bought it but damn it all to hell and back. Who would think to look and see if the tub on the tenant side is draining directly onto the ground under the house? Ditto our washing machine. I hope the person who sold us this POS is rotting in some grave somewhere. If I knew where it was I'd go shit on their grave since I am currently unable to do same in my own home.l

Dec. 30th, 2008 01:58 pm Crap (literally)

So, we've been having to have work done on the rental side of our double so that we can rent it. One of the things that got done was to replace the bathroom floor, which so needed it. While we were at it we had the ancient toilet replaced. That was like two or three weeks ago. It hasn't been used because no-one lives there. Then on Sunday it was noticed that there was water on the nice new bathroom floor. additionally when we flushed on our side it gurgled. Later in the day it started gurgling in our tub upon flushing our toilet, followed by gurgling from the other side of the wall. Then yesterday water started exiting the base of our toilet. The thought of trying to find a plumber this close to the New Year is killing me. I mean that literally as well.

You see last night I had a dream that I had been beaten to death and it wasn't so bad because I knew that since I was dead I wouldn't have to worry about fixing the plumbing. I am afraid that a) we won't be able to get anyone until next Monday and b) that it will be like the person who goes in for a biopsy and they just close them back up and say "Get your stuff in order and enjoy the next month." (BTW the friend that did the floor and toilet next door is out of town until the 6th, because that was my first thought.)

Dec. 17th, 2008 12:17 pm Christmas fever

My family celebrates Christmas, but when it is convenient. I will visit my sister at the end of January and we will do it then. One year it was in May. My "whatever" attitude toward Christmas is being fouled by my boss. Buddy the Elf is the only person I know with more Christmas spirit than my boss. She is sending out a multitude of gifts, all of which must be hand addressed, tissued, rubbed in her cootchie, etc. We have gone over her mailing list like five times now. She "knows" that certain people "must" be on the list. Why are they not there. Perhaps it is because she never gave me their address in the first place. Or maybe it was that time I let her cousin, who was doing an internship touch the mailing list. Who can say. I've had it up to my nipples with this crap and can't wait for it to all be over.

Oct. 17th, 2008 11:51 am Fantastic utility

Sometime last month I saw this utility on Lifehacker. It's a movie database for your collection. Just type in the name and then suck the info from IMDB. Works like a charm and is free. Thought I'd pass on the link.
