just drill the damn hole
what have I done?
this weekend when I was organizing, I picked up my faux-rubik’s cube, half-mindedly thinking, ‘I just want the colors to be slightly different.’
there are supposed to be pixelated heart shapes on each side but, I made too many twists and turns before I realized,”oh wait, I’m not entirely sure what the heart pattern is supposed to look like and the double color patterns are making this extra confusing.” and I had to force myself to set it down because I don’t have the time or brain power to sort this out right now.
we aren’t going to analyze this too closely.
I almost never, in this little section of my life, have time or space to watch TV. but a few days ago I found myself in a room when The Soup was on. I like Joel McHale beyond reason so, I was trying to soak it up. And it mostly seemed mean and unfunny and I was losing faith and here comes another mean unfunny “joke” . This one is about an ‘ugly’ person making the transition to a porn career…
me: (in the quietest voice) the unfluffer. that was my nickname in high school.
and there are groans and sympathy noises as I cackled my way out of the room. that was enough TV.
everyone has their job to do in life. YOU’RE WELCOME.
Anyway, AuntAbides gave us chalkboard coffee cups as presents awhile back. Mine is above. I don’t drink coffee out of mine. (I store a gladiator in mine, and it usually has a different nickname on it, I’ll show you a picture another time.) but what I do for AuntMurble is write one of her ‘nicknames from high school’ on her mug each time after I wash it. (I’m also collecting pictures of those) TWMNiHS. is one of her favorite games.
It’s a team-building exercise, or something.
I encountered neither severe thunderstorm nor tornado on my walk tonight, and that’s good but, a breeze or a rainstorm would be nice.
thunder would be great actually.
I’m sorting through belongings again. Always. And Jules probably sent this light switch cover to me close to 3 years ago. I remember tucking it away, thinking, I’m not installing it here. I’ll wait and install it in MY home. UGH.
I just participated in the consumption of a thing called THE VOLCANO. For tater tot reasons.
so, I can, like, never ever afford the “real art” at the art festival but, a thing they do almost every year is The Empty Bowl Project. I’ve been to The Empty Bowl project in several states but this is my favorite because most of the pottery is made by kids in the local school districts. The local food bank gets money. Kids get to make art. I get to buy kid art. it’s a win-win-win.
Some years I can buy bags of pottery. some years just one thing but always something. This was feeling like a one piece year so I was trying to make the BEST CHOICE.
I take forever making my empty bowl choices. I have to look at the tables from all different angles and circle and circle back.
I was torn between a fox head, a mustachioed wizard, and a dude with a glitter moustache. but then I realized, THAT’S A BATHTUB! and I was done. I actually already have a mustache man from a previous year. If that fox had been mustache’d it would be home with me right now.
