As a ship nerd, I'm all about documentaries and ship stories... and have been since I was a little early elementary aged turd and learned about the Titanic (ze gateway drug to learning about statistics and disaster stories, it seems). Wanna go to the library? Hells yeah. Who's gonna be coming out with a bunch … Continue reading I think I just found the most inventive, hilarious and somewhat creepiest thing I’ve ever seen on YouTube: Cardboardia
I'm starting to develop a major appreciation for plumbers and the know-how they have, and the skills and time it takes for their labor, because my hands are sore as hell after all the pulling and tugging and the like I had to do the past several hours. Also explains why they seem to all … Continue reading My DIY Faucet Replacement (Part 2); or, some glue-happy sumbitch really made my night interesting… & painful.
(gif found on theawesomedaily.com) Out of the blue, after watching a few too many first reaction vids to Monty Python and the Holy Grail, I remembered an awesome t-shirt design from way-back-when and now I want the bloody thing. When I first saw it, it just made me laugh WAY too hard. And it got … Continue reading (Absurd) Q #172– Who would win this stand-off: Gandalf (LOTR) or The Black Knight (MPatHG)?
It's been an insane few weeks and I'm still trying to wrap my head around all that's gone on, and perhaps when I got a better bead on it, I'll report here. But in the meantime, I got that "stupid day" feeling quite a few times and needed a quick pick me up. And something … Continue reading If you’ve ever had one of those days when you just feel dumb, 5 minutes with this channel might just make you feel smarter…
Today I kept thinking about that little silly rhyme about the weather: "April showers bring May flowers." Well, with today's heavy rain this morning (and more predicted for tomorrow), it's not quite accurate. But then again, welcome to southeast Texas. We just had some minor spats of rain, maybe an hour or two here or … Continue reading April was all about gardening & trees & bees. I wonder what May’s going to bring now.
I got a bidet, so this doesn't affect me much. I've got a 12 roll pack that could probably last me a year at this rate. However, I'm seeing there's some notices around the country that have popped up periodically indicating toilet paper is getting sparse in fits and starts. Hmm... So, it got me … Continue reading Blitz Q #154: Know anyone still using up the toilet paper from the first great toilet paper famine of March 2020?
I was gonna wait til tomorrow to go back to the store and get the parakeets I heard were gonna be available. I knew they had 'em, but they weren't available to be bought yet because they do a check-up and quarantine of sorts for a week or two to make sure they're okay and … Continue reading Bringing new friends home at last, & hoping for the best…
I've talked about my "escape artist retriever mix" before. He's broken his collar three times in the past year and I finally buckled down after the last time and got him fitted for a harness. He's gotten used to it, but I can tell lately he's gotten more annoyed and perturbed. Mostly because he can't … Continue reading Bringing out the big guns; or, my dog’s REALLY gonna hate me in the morning…
That's probably my fave part of the film. Still don't think I've seen the whole thing. Anyhoo-- My plans were a bit boring. I didn't get to bed til about 1:30, and with only the furry kids in the house today, I took my time waking up. I gave 'em hugs for puppy kisses, fed … Continue reading My Christmas today could’ve been a cut-scene from National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
(Not my chair, but definitely one of my rugs because carpet sucks [pic from esalerugs.com]) Rest assured, I have not suddenly become a Stepford wife or something that's gone the route of June Cleaver wannabe. I made some plans and finally figured out how to get a good dose of cleaning done today instead of … Continue reading I’ve spent about 10 hours today trying to scour my new place…& I’m totally happy about it.
