Oh hey…

I haven’t posted since New Year’s Day and before that it had been months.  I’ve been knee deep in projects since last Fall and although I have been thinking about posting a lot I just didn’t have the energy to actually sit down and put something together.  I saw this cartoon posted on Facebook a week or so ago and thought it would be a fitting first post back.

I still have a gazillion and one projects going on but I know that I need to do this too.  When I don’t write my brain starts feel sluggish, and I also start to have weird dreams.  It took me years to figure out that it was my subconscious venting some of my creative thoughts preventing what I can only imagine would be some sort of brain implosion. So, in consideration of a good night’s sleep and to avoid the impending imploding brain, I’ll be posting here a couple of times a week.

I’ll be spending most of my week on ‘Workspace Rearrangement’, it’s an intermediate class but I’m just auditing the course since I have taken it before…several times.

I hope everyone is having a good week!


Time for a break

For the past two weeks I’ve been working fairly non-stop on a redecorating project.  Today though, I needed a break and needed to laugh.  My choice was to watch Simon Pegg’s Cornetto Trilogy of movies.  We started with Shaun of the Dead, continued with Hot Fuzz and finished the it off with The World’s End.  I’ve seen Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz several times before and totally loved them.  I was not disappointed with The World’s End, it was more of the same funny action and adventure.

Cornetto Trilogy
It was a well needed break and I am really thankful.  I am ready to get back to my project and everything else that needs to be done this week.  Here’s hoping everyone has a successful week!


Father’s Day…

Today was pretty low key.  

We started out with a Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie, ‘Zombie Nightmare’.  

It was an awesomely awful movie with Adam West and Tia Carrere, other notables included writer John Fasano and director Shawn Levy.  

Of course, the MST3K commentary is the best part, and as usual, was hilarious.

Next, we watched several episodes of ‘Punkin Chunkin’.  It was nice to see Zach Selwyn hosting, Sully and I remember seeing him on the gaming channel, G4.  

The machines that the guys build for these competitions are incredible.  Although the centrifugal ones look really unsafe, I can’t help but think that at those speeds it could be crazy dangerous if there is a mechanical failure.

Our dinner selection was Sully’s favorite…drum roll please…


Sully’s favorite scene, “Oh Baxter!”

My favorite scene, “Dorothy Mantooth is a saint!”

June+1My June +1 for today was doing something creative.  We are rehanging some picture frames and I spent some time looking through photos.  I also made some cute scrapbook type pages to put in the 8×10 frames.  It was fun and I can’t wait to see the wall after the frames are hung up.



One more time…

We took Kayla to her grandma’s house a little after noon today.  Val’s husband is going to pick up Kayla and her brother from there this evening.

We spent the rest of the day hanging out and relaxing.  We have all stayed up way too late over the last few days.  We ended up watching our favorite episodes of the show “How I Met Your Mother”.

The Headache Corollary…

My more recent posts haven’t been very exciting or even original.  My allergies have been fairly annoying and this weekend.  I woke up Saturday with a horrid headache and suffered through the next two days trying to fight it off.

Sully, Boo and I spent the weekend having our own marathon of The Big Bang Theory.

Here are some of my favorite moments… click the episode titles for links to YouTube.

The Adhesive Duck Deficiency (Season 3, Episode 8)
