Just kidding!

Just Dance is tons of fun, even when you’re all by your lonesome. :)


Maybe the Kinect will do it

January 7, 2012 § 1 Comment

The couch has been moved all the way to the back of the living room, making the space larger and, seemingly, tidier. We still don’t have room for multiple people to play Kinect at once, though, so we’re thinking of moving the couch to the side so we can use all the space in front of the TV to play Just Dance 3. (What? It’s boring to play alone.)

To that end, I need to get everything picked up off the floor of the living room. I’m being slightly side-tracked, though, by my frantic need to expand on my Les Mis tattoo before the movie comes out. I don’t want someone to try and tattoo Taylor Swift onto my leg because they think that’s what Eponine looks and sounds like. Nope nope nope.

Resuscitation: Attempt 1

December 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

So, recent events have conspired to make me want to revive this blog. However, I don’t think the strategy I was using before to keep my house clean is going to be very effective going out. It required a bit too much…what’s the word? Coordination? Yes, coordination. And memory. Those of you who know me know that I’m low on both of those.

I had to remember not only to clean, but to time it. Honestly, timing it took up a significant portion of the timed time!

So I need a new strategy. Something simple and easy, yet effective. Actually, the effectiveness of it doesn’t matter too much as long as it’s more effective than doing nothing. While I can’t go so far as to say that my bathroom hasn’t been cleaned at all since I let this blog go, the truth is slightly closer to that than I’d like to admit.

Any suggestions?


I’m always apologizing

September 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

I feel like I’ve been apologizing to my blog a lot lately. Sorry guys! You see, when I’m not at work, doing lots more walking with my new job than I’ve been used to for the past two years, I’m hanging out with friends drinking wine, hanging out with my honey drinking wine, or sleeping. All of that leaves little time to update.

Never fear, though. Tonight, I think, we’re going to have a night in and I will be sure to set some of it aside for you, dear hoardes.*

In the meantime, enjoy this Patton Oswalt bit, and then go buy his new album here.

*We settled on seven of you, yes?

More discussions on Peniscolony possibilities

September 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

So a little while back, I was lamenting on Peniscolony when the five of us in the car on the way home from the bar started debating on what a Peniscolony is.

Is it a commune of men?

Is it a more laid back sausage party?

Is it a slutty lady?

I open the floor. What say the hoardes*?

*I’ve been proven wrong. There’s seven of you.

Did some laundry yesterday

September 26, 2011 § Leave a comment

I did 33 minutes of laundry yesterday. Usually it takes about twice as long to fold laundry, but the Brit boy was helping me out. Yay!

I also spent some time sorting through piles of papers and I found the divorce papers I’d been looking for. They’re coming with me today and this week, hopefully today but we shall see, I’ll be heading to the courthouse to file them. Wahooozahs! <–That is a cheer everyone should take up. Yes.

It’s like having a new computer

September 25, 2011 § 2 Comments

So no posts yesterday. Sorry about that, oh hordes* of people who read this blog. You see, my computer was out of commission for most of the day.

It all started when I wanted to download a very small, perfectly legal file and my computer said there wasn’t space. I thunk back to a few nights before when my computer had been using some program that I didn’t know about to apparently download shit from some cloud service that I don’t use. I’d stopped that program and removed it from my computer, but who knows what other shit the ex left on here?

A lot of it, apparently. When I manually deleted everything in the Documents folder, I found that it contained over 35,000 items. Flippin’ FSM! Right?

So a coworker let me borrow a start-up disc and, after flubbing it on the first try, I finally managed to erase everything from my computer and reinstall the OS. Ahhhh… It’s so much faster now and those programs that I don’t even know what they do will stop popping up in the corner asking me to update them. Yesss….

As for housework, which is undoubtedly why you read this blog (quell your eye rolls, please), I’ve been lazy busy with, er, work and shit and haven’t done any. Pretty much all of yesterday was taken up with the reformatting of the computer, for example. I do, however, have a very large pile of laundry awaiting me in the living room as well as a messy bathroom bedroom living room office house to work on.

So expect an update soon. Maybe.

*Six. I think there are six of you.
