today felt like Friday all day long.  Which was really kind of annoying :)

Another long day

this time including crawling around on the floor verifying server power connections.  Such is the life.

Fair part 2

Today was just ugly. Ugly hot and ugly humid.  Didn't really enjoy the outing to the state fair with work.  Only spent a couple hours there, so it was kind of a waste of ticket money, too.

Monday, August 26, 2013


I had to turn off the Eco switch in the car.  Couldn't handle the a/c not running all the time.  When the car says it's 100 outside, I kinda need the a/c!

Recovery Day

Spent most of the day just doing stuff - played DDO in the morning.  Well, not so much played as rebuilt all my characters, since the expansion reset everything.  Then I installed the new hard drive (finally!), posted pictures from the fair, did some laundry, did some dishes, played DDO again off the new hard drive (much faster!), and installed Skyrim  Everyone else is playing it, I might as well too!\\

Starting to plan ahead for the coming weekend, and our trip out to Denver.  Thinking of the various things I need to take, things I need to do (haircut can probably wait till I get there), that sort of stuff.  This week is going to fly by, I'm sure!

12 hours

I think that's the longest we've ever spent at the state fair.  Didn't get to the concert part tho - no place to sit for blocks.  Should have sat down around noon, I guess.

I'll post some pictures later.

State Fair Day tomorrow

I'm going to be sore and aching and full and hot and stressed.

At least I know what I'm doing to myself :)

Thursday, August 22, 2013

Kind of a quiet day today

of which I will not complain about.  Also makes for a short blog entry :) Two more days till we visit the state fair tho - starting to get excited!

hate 'em.  Get a song stuck in there, and it's never coming out.  Had one half the night and most of the day.  Finally faded away, but man.. that's annoying!

Still hot

it's supposed to cool down (that is, mid 80's) and then shoot back up again to 90 for Saturday.  of course.  Well, we bought tickets, so we are going.  We may just go twice in one day, or sit it out in the shade for a few hours, then wander again in the cooler part of the day.

Heating Up

Supposed to be over 90 for the next few days.  I hope it cools off by the weekend.  We're planning on visiting the State Fair on Saturday.

I'm trying to decide if I want to take pictures with my camera, or with my phone.  The camera takes slightly better pictures, but the phone is easier to carry.  The phone is easier to lose, too.

Decisions, decisions.  At least I don't (yet) have to worry about taking out my gallbladder! (sorry mom!)

Finished... least with that little burst of cleanup. Reorganized most of the dvds, built the bookshelf, put all the cases on the shelves.  The cases you see here are nearly all full.  Almost time to buy another set!

Next project - installing a new games-dedicated hard drive in the computer.  Hopefully that won't be too awfully complicated.

Shopping day

Ran all over town today, but I got what I needed to finish off reorganizing the living room/dining room.  Got a bookshelf from IKEA that will let me put all the binders that hold all of our dvds, so they'll be out of the way.  Going to spend a good deal of time tomorrow re-sorting the dvds so they are grouped better, and a little easier to find when we want to watch a movie.

Mostly done

I'd say I got 80% of my list done today.  It didn't help that I sat at the dealership for almost 2 hours and they couldn't duplicate my problem.  Oh well, maybe it was all in my head.

Have to do a little shopping tomorrow to finish today's chore list, but then I can feel good about actually getting something done!

To-Do List

Anyone want to make bets on how much of my to-do list for tomorrow actually gets done?  I have plans to do stuff before I take the car to the dealer, and ideas for stuff to do afterwards - all of it related to housecleaning.

We'll see.  I'm not that optimistic :)

I wonder why we have weird dreams sometimes.  last night I had a dream where I was in a whodunit kind of thing, with Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman.

I have no idea why.  Last thing I watched before going to bed was Chopped, and neither of them are on that!

Grammar Police

Sometimes I really feel like that.  Most people don't take the time to correctly phrase things any more, it feels like.

don't know if I can ever 'get over it', tho.

Not much happened today

reminds me of an episode of Babylon 5 :)  But today, it's true.  I went to work, came home, watched Iron Chef America, played on the computer for a while and went to bed.  Nothing newsworthy and/or exciting.

The Wolverine

Finally got to see this today.  I liked it, and I liked seeing some scenery and cities beyond just the normal 'big city america'.  I did stay through the credits, so got a little teaser for the next x-men movie coming next year.

Next movie on the list is Percy Jackson. Hope to see that this coming weekend.

No movies at the theater.  Bought a couple on DVD, but someone couldn't get her schedule together, so we didn't do anything but grocery shopping, and a quick trip to Best Buy.

Maybe tomorrow.

Long day at work

capped off with a relatively nice dinner at Outback.  Hopefully the weekend will be relaxing and stress free.

Thursday, August 8, 2013

Another weekend

already.  Going to spend it house cleaning, and hopefully seeing a few movies.


Wednesday, August 7, 2013


Been watching this show lately - it's amazing what these people can come up with on the fly.  I know I couldn't!  I have trouble with recipes sometimes, even :)

Tuesday, August 6, 2013

Well, that's done at least

got the new dvr installed and running.  Will have to work on rebuilding the recording list, since a lot of our shows aren't on right now, and don't appear in the guide.

And we'll have to continue watching the shows off the old one, so we can deactivate it, and get rid of the buggy thing.

Monday again

The days are flying by.  It's crazy how the workday can take forever to end, but looking at the calendar shows the days moving so fast.

Sunday, August 4, 2013


The concert was a lot of fun, but today wasn't that great.  Spent most of the day feeling yucky - probably a combination of smoke, uncomfortable bed, and bad food.  When we got home, I spent the afternoon and a good chunk of the evening dozing on the couch.

Hope I feel better tomorrow!

Looking forward to the weekend

we're going to see Weird Al and staying the night at the casino.  So tomorrow is cleaning up the house so we don't have housework to come home to, packing for saturday then a mini vacation (yeah, it's one day, but away from home counts).

So, don't expect me to post for a few days.  Of course, if I win the Powerball, I may never post again - I'll be too busy celebrating :)
