Friday's To Do list:



  • Jog before it gets hot

  • vacuum

  • get Mr. S to: mow, edge, wash the coolers, finish sizing the walls in the MB so painting can happen later, replace light fixtures

  • look busy while he's doing that so he doesn't quit

  • finally write in to the local paper and tell them once again, "Mr. Natural Gardening Columnist" is an asshole that shouldn't have the job

  • send links that show that Epazote is NOT good to ingest in large quantities as it is TOXIC and can kill people (and is a natural abortive) HELLO. (scroll to bottom)

  • Remind them that just because something exists in nature, doesn't mean it is automatically GOOD FOR YOU. See: uranium

  • Also: rotenone. (crushed and powdered chrysanthemums) Note that the LD50 - toxicity level - is MORE POTENT than the chemical diazinon, kthx. (the lower the number, the faster it kills you.)

  • fix that wonky paragraph in your crack!fic - just because it's crack doesn't mean it can't have proper sentence structure. Or something.

  • stop

  • smell roses

  • possibly prune roses while smelling

  • and that Russian sage out back that's out of control

  • and the cosmos

  • that butterfly bush is almost as tall as the cedar tree, don't forget that

  • strap on radiation suit and enter the boy's room for laundry/trash/burning it all with a flame thrower

  • go to library and return books!! ACK!

  • *cough* pay speeding ticket *cough*

  • oooh! see if Market Street has English peas in the pod - YUM - and get milk

  • do NOT make a milk mustache and wait for people to query, "Got milk?" It wasn't funny the first time, it's not funny now.

  • tighten up that outline for the Writing Humor panel - email crew again and ask them for BULLET POINTS, pls.

  • Ooooh, get cheesecloth to make paneer today! Or tomorrow, depending on how much you get done. (Dude, we're making cheese! I feel so Laura Ingalls.)

  • cajole father into taking children for sleepover so you can go see PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN!!!

  • convince the world that Norrington/Sparrow is AWESOME and turn them all into fic writers for your pleasure

  • finish that damn Norrington fic

  • get around to that "My Mayor Richard Wilkins the III" post you've been meaning to do

  • ignore everything here and MAHJONGG!!!



[eta] is anyone else noticing that bullet points look all weird lately? With the over-spacing? o_O
[eta#2]: swmbo! You should get this guy to do your lawn! Or find another person in need of weight loss closer to home. Hee!

The part I loved most about that article:

"My life has been turned upside down, man, unbelievable," he said. "I was planning on doing five lawns: Mine plus four others. Now, I'm doing six lawns: Mine plus five others. ...

One more lawn = TOTAL UPHEAVAL!
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 02:47 pm (UTC)
hahaha!! I KNOW, right? But then, maybe that "extra" lawn is like... the size of the White house lawn.

Otherwise, what a WUSS!

I AM BEING VERY GOOD AND POSTING THINGS UNDER CUTS!

(Though yes, I feel your pain. ...It got a horrible review from EW. *insulted, doesn't know why*)
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 02:59 pm (UTC)
I SEE!! I SAW!! You are of the goodness in this (and three other, besides) world.

And, yeah, I'm seeing crappy reviews, too, BUT. Do I care? Every critic is going on about how they loved it in '03, but I REMEMBER. I REMEMBER people slamming Depp's performance. Snickering over how this was a movie based on a RIDE. The PEOPLE loved it.

They will love this one, too! *Stands on hillside as sun rises behind me, a root vegetable in my hand* As God is my witness, I'll never stop loving Sparrington again! (not that I ever did, mind, just work with me.)
floweringjudas
Jul. 7th, 2006 03:32 pm (UTC)
DUDE SO DO I. The ride thing still being played up in reviews. Sometimes I get really annoyed with movie critics, I mean JESUS. Lost In Translation v. PIRATES, and what do they choose? Bah.

agh augh waugh I just thought of cracktastic Sparrington-as-Rhett-and-Scarlett YOUR FAULT YOUR FAULT

The lady who reviewed this one also didn't like the first one I heard. So CLEARLY something is wrong with her brain.

Busy, busy lady, you are. ♥

I hate you and that damn mahjongg link. You're going to hell for that, you know. ;-)

Good luck with your list (and with the gardening columnist war).
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 03:50 pm (UTC)
MAHJONGG. Dude, I hate MYSELF. Except that I don't. Heh. *points to icon*

(And I'm waiting to hear back from the Master Gardener administrator about creating a gardening blog to answer/address gardening issues on a weekly basis, provide SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, etc. etc. I cring everytime he tells people they have to put rock/mineral powder in their soil here and I wonder if he secretly works for the Concrete Lobbyists or something. GAH.)

My other addiction is http://www.jigsawdoku.com/. I sit in front of the tv with the laptop and just zone out on the two of them.

Good luck with the blog thing. That would be awesome.

Ooooooooooooh. The Boy is seriously addicted to Sudoku, so that is going to be a winner in our house, I predict.

(I may just make the blog myself. Mostly, I'm looking to get it linked with the association so I can incur volunteer hours. Heh.)
moosesal
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:36 pm (UTC)
Well for regular sudoku check out www.websudoku.com. I like the 6x6 jigsaw one when watching TV (it's a little easier), but the regular ones are pretty awesome. And it's free!
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:47 pm (UTC)
Yay! More fun to be had, thanks!!

(Also: *cough*master_gardener*cough* I plan on beginning the blog tomorrow, should you be interested. No pressure, btw.)
moosesal
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:54 pm (UTC)
Sweet. I'll definitely check it out. I just bought a book on month-by-month gardening for here in the Rockies. At some point I hope to be able to actually read it and start planning so that next summer I'll have the yard that I want. Thanks to Chris our lawn is really starting to look good, but the few flowers and stuff in the front are ... pathetic. :)

So even though we're in different climates and probably different soil types, I imagine I can learn a thing or two from you.
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 05:14 pm (UTC)
The great thing about learning more of the scientific aspects of gardening, is that you can apply it to where ever you live.

So, the soil types/heat zone may be different, but hopefully some of the information I want to comment on transcends that. Plus, I want to hook people up with the extension agencies in their areas so you can learn about what native plants or hybridized plants will work in your area. (Boulder, right? Am I making that up?)
moosesal
Jul. 7th, 2006 05:19 pm (UTC)
Actually I'm west of Boulder (on the other side of the mountains -- the "western slope"), but that's probably the closest city that would have information that would be similar for elevation and such.

Remind them that just because something exists in nature, doesn't mean it is automatically GOOD FOR YOU. See: uranium

Oh, yay to that!
And vice versa with unnatural!
(I mean, just because it's unnatural doesn't mean its bad for you!)
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:04 pm (UTC)
I mean, I get that being "organic" is an emotional reaction to percieved "badness to the environment," but since the majority of people who push organics don't get understand the larger picture, it becomes incredibly frustrating for me.

This is a SERIOUS hot button topic with me, so I'll try and shut my trap before I bore everyone to tears...

(And ditto on the "unnatural" stuff, aka, man-harnessed/made/modified. Ever look at stagnant water? I don't mind some man-made processes to clean it up so I can drink, thank you.)
trepkos
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:18 pm (UTC)
It's like, the implication that carrots not grown in horse manure are "inorganic" that annoys me!
stoney321
Jul. 7th, 2006 04:24 pm (UTC)
RIGHT. What kills me is how people spend extra money on "organic" bananas, when all they are is harvested rock hard and green before the miticides (which don't harm humans, more on that in a gardening post later) are applied, then shoved in a room with methane gas to ripen them faster.

THERE'S YOUR ORGANIC BANANAS, PEOPLE.

Oh god. Russian sage. I DO NOT like it. It is evil. Radiation suit? Now that's funny. I want some English peas too, but they are so hard to find around here. I want my peas please.

Hey Stoney -- unfortunately, due tosome family issues, i'm staying at a friend's place for the time being and access to my computer is going to be minimal. I'll do the best I can on paper (gasp! so old fashioned!) and type up my ficathon entry and I'll try to get some lohan action going, but I doubt it'll be within the week. I'm really sorry.
stoney321
Jul. 9th, 2006 12:52 pm (UTC)
Oh, no! (To the family stuff, not silly online activities.)

DO NOT WORRY about the ficathon/RPG, etc. Let's just hope that things in your life turn for the better so you don't feel any more stress, okay?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
