The place looks naked without the drapes. Did Scarlett O’Hara give any consideration to the modesty of the walls before she made that dress?
Last night I got everything else off my walls (but my speakers) and all the nail holes patched. This morning I am cleaning the blinds and windows. I’ll put the screen back into the window that I use as a cat door. Then I’ll clean the stove racks. The stove is already clean.
I think I’ll just by new drip pans rather than waste too much time scrubbing these. 5 bucks; my time is worth it.
I had to put in a new sconce in the bathroom since I couldn’t find a cover to fit the one that stray cat broke. I like the new one; I think I’ll change all the fixtures when I get to the new place. It is amazing what a difference it makes.
I’ll do a couple loads of laundry as soon as the time gets late enough. I don’t want to start a load at 0630 in the morning. Just because I am up and running doesn’t mean I have to wake my neighbors.
My cat is driving me nuts; she goes insane when I am packing; very aggressive. I can understand that she wants to explore everything but holy shit she gets pissed when I won’t let her stay in the box. I tried just making her a box just for her, but of course she wants to be in the one I am currently packing. I am glad she is declawed or else I would have gotten scratched already. She can be a little bitch. I put her outside to run her wild out, but that is not going to be a solution down south. I have to put her on a leash to take her outside. Yeah, like that will happen.
I go to KC this morning after I pick up a rental car. I get to see my nieces. They seem excited. It makes me feel good. I will try to talk my brother in to letting me take them to see Ironman or Hulk.
I finally got some mail back from my daughter. (yay!) I haven’t heard from her since spring break. She cut off her hair. Not like Britney, but just now instead of hair down to her waist she has shoulder length hair. I don’t fault her, really. Long hair is a burden which is why all long haired women should be pampered by their men. You can tell them I said so. Reviews
10,000 BC: Not worth it; the effects weren’t that good, the story was lame, and it borrowed way too heavily from other modern movies (300, specifically). Better to see Clan of the Cave Bear
Ninja Gaiden Σ:
Fucking awesome. The game play is as good or better than Devil May Cry 4, the graphics are incredible, the story line is good, and it is a huge game. I’ve invested six hours already and I am only 1/3 of the way through it. Makes me want to play Prince of Persia: Two Thrones again. Damn chariot race.
Flash Point: is a very good action movie with some great fight choreography; I especially like the grappling action and am glad to see a little UFC inspired fight sequences. The story is nothing new but, hey, it’s an action flick.
Amarok is probably the greatest media player I have ever used. I really love the dynamic playlists and the way it downloads the lyrics for me automatically. For windows users, you can get a plug-in for the media player that does much the same thing, but I have never tried it.
I ♥ Linux, but I can’t get anything to work with Wine; so if anyone is a guru, hook me up and tell me what I need to do. I admit, I haven’t researched that much. I will be able to figure it out when it becomes necessary, but right now I just boot into XP if I want to use an XP program.
