books

I find this very interesting.

I love decorating with books. I think you can almost just buy them for their color and shape to add to a room. The books I have out and around the house are ones I’ve read or are getting aroung to reading. But, after we bought our house and we started decorating more, I realized that I had a load of antique books at my home in Kansas.

Maybe I can convince the wife to let me haul them back.

i don’t usually do these, but…


quotation marks
You scored 53% Sociability and 64% Sophistication!
There is a lot more to you than meets the eye. You certainly get plenty of “action,” but you’d be happier if those who lusted after you were more selective. You hate being used as a general intensifier; haven’t these people ever heard of underlining? Italics? And yes, you remember the cruel words Mr. Joyce directed at you.

But you let none of this get you down; those who abuse you are destined for a “special” reward, sooner or later. You feel particularly warm toward periods, commas, exclamation points, and question marks, and usually wish to have them next to you. Parenthesis can sometimes trouble you.

bugmenot.com

I’m sure a lot know about http://www.bugmenot.com but in case you don’t there’s the link.

It’s a site that allows you to log in to news sites and pretty much any site that requires a log in name/password (except for porn sites, believe me, I’ve tried).

A great tool to use when someone sends a link to a nytimes.com article or some crap website that just wants to use your information to send you spam.

just another normal wednesday

Basic rules of the road have been thrown out the window. No body cares how they drive anymore. Everybody cuts everybody else off.

I was cut off by a school bus on the way home from work. A SCHOOL BUS! I couldn’t believe it. This drivers disregard for the well-being and safety of his passengers (my neighbors’ kids). This just sums it all up. Everyone cares for themselves first.

In other news, one of Katie’s co-workers was in an accident on I-270 this morning. It was one of what seemed like 12 accidents on that interstate.

So, who cares. The Sox are gonna run’em over anyway.

“Open that roof mutha…”
“Shut yo’ mouth”
“I’m just wanting the Astros to open they roof.”

Get over it

It’s a plastic and metal device. It’s going to scratch. Apple never said it wouldn’t scratch. Ever owned a car? Ever had it not get a scratch on it? Did it cost more than your nano? I bet it did. Quite your bitching and buy a case. Protect it like anything else you’d pay good money for.

crap

Do you ever get so caught up in something you lose track of the day?

Do you ever start on one project, have the full intention of finishing it, but somehow something else sidetracks you away from that first project? This sidetrack can either totally null and void the first project or just take you away from it for a little bit.

I have the latter problem. I always start a project or errand or idea or something and find myself getting sidetracked (maybe not for hours, sometimes just minutes) but it always slows me down on what I’m doing. I always see something that I’ve wanted to do, end up dropping what I’m currently doing, or pick up this new thing and just add it to what I was doing.

Like, I’ll be walking through the kitchen, with the intent of starting to clean. I begin to clean and notice the coupon holder. Hmm, I think, I need to go through those and throw away the old ones (side note, getting something on sale and having the coupon for it is a shopping orgasm) See, I just did it right there. I fucking sidetracked.

So, away, getting back to what I said, I will stop cleaning and start going through the coupons. This won’t take long, but the urge to do something else while I’m all ready doing something is strong. I can’t fucking shake it. It’s like some sort of reverse, indirect, unproportional ADD. I can still focus on the primary task, but all these other minor tasks seem to work there way into what I’m currently focused on.

IT DRIVES ME NUTS AND I CAN’T STOP DOING IT!

Maybe I’m just overreacting, but I’d just like to do something and get it done before I start something else.

Now, where’s my coupon book.
