Hump Day already?

Man, things have been... rough. Okay, in comparison to other people's troubles, they've been merely bumpy, but for me: rough. To the point that my dentist (tooth cleaning on Monday) told me I may need to get a mouth guard because I'm wearing away my back teeth from clenching. O_O And.... relax. *exhaaaaaaaale* (thank you to everyone from that last post. I'm trying to move past some stuff, so I may not reply. But I appreciate the support like you wouldn't believe.)

My way to deal with the current stresses life sent my way is to paint my kitchen. As in, the cabinets. All 48 of them. What on EARTH AM I THINKING? Okay, they're an ugly cherry color, which could be fine in many kitchens, but coupled with the beige (yuck) walls and beige countertops... A whole lot of blah. I SUCK at stripping (unless there's a pole, ba-dump-bum-CHING!) so I decided to paint them. Um... Mr. S specifically said when I posed the idea to him a few weeks ago that he was AGAINST painting. Oh, well. I have to look at it every day, so I make the decisions. :D (The cabinetry is being painted a deep, high gloss chocolate brown. The walls are getting painted a muslin color - faint yellows and creams - accented with a grey-green-khaki color. That sounds weird, but trust me! The color chips are GORGEOUS. (If I didn't suck at taking pictures I would post some.)

I keep repeating lines from "Pulp Fiction" while I paint (with a brush! It's all with a brush! it's going to be beautiful! <--convincing myself)

"Shit yeah. I got my technique down and everything, I don't be ticklin' or nothin'." Tickling = glops, drips, visible brush strokes. Isn't this EXCITING? Um.. the whole point is LACK of excitement. There's enough all around as there is.

Oh! So who dat is? Anna's Baby's Daddy! If you'd like a skeevier version (don't act like you don't.) you can read this. :D Also, Don Imus is a prick - I gasped when I read what he called those girls, and I am SO PROUD of the Rutger's ball team. And can we all agree that GIRL athletes are COMPLETELY different from BOY athletes? (theory: because they can't make it rich by playing sports professionally, they develop other successful skills as well, allowing them to be more well rounded than boy athletes.)

In conclusion: OM. (and tonight is the FNL season finale!! TUNE IN AT 7PM, on NBC!)

I LOVE THIS PLAN. And you. Also, there should be fajita nachos and margaritas added to the plan, pls.

*makes sure they tape off the backside of the cabinet fronts, zomg*

Oh, how cool, thanks! (I just got back a bunch of photos I took of my garden and I WISH WISH WISH I had a macro lens so things look super cool, instead of lame.)

You are good at pictures! Hello. I am sitting in a library writing about medieval numerology. If you find painting cabinets too exciting, I suggest you try that next. *hugs lots*

haha, no, I'm really not! :D

Medieval numerology could be really really interesting, though! (Just me? And your professor?)

*hugs you MORE, zomg*

You ARE. What. Lies.

...yeah, okay, actually it sort of is if you're a big huge geek. You have to love these medieval poets, they bung in special symbolic bits on the 2,525th line of their poems, KNOWING that it's a poem to be spoken aloud and thus the audience will never go "ZOMG 2,525TH LINE you are SO CLEVER what wih the 2s and 5s and all", and yet they do it anyway.

NB 5 is really important to the poem. Er, my brain is fried, but it's all about early Medieval Marian worship and, like, stuff. My professor is a MILLION YEARS OLD. srsly.

*hugs you x infinity PLUS ONE*

Heeeee! I had a long and detailed convo with my father about Bulgarian composers, and how they used math like crazy in their compositions in the 17th-18th centuries, so you are NOT ALONE.

And there are the few random people that DO go nuts for the 2s and 5s, ha! (I love that! So clever and obscure!)

Omg, 48 cabinets! You are the queen of kitchen storage space. *bows down to you*

Also, your arms are going to be all toned and awesome after this paint job. Yes, yes.

Hi, Stoney! <3

Ahahahaha, that is an EXCELLENT POINT re: exercise! (that means I can skip the long walk, right??) OMG, J, coming from our old house with the ONE 2'x3' counter that had the toaster, micro, canisters/prep space and 8 cabinets, this felt like PARADISE.

(Although it's taking me FOREVER to get done, zomg!)

Hi, Entre!!! <3 <3 <3! There needs to be Fresca Peach where you are so we can One, Two, ThreeSIP! in unison and our sighs of pleasure will circle the earth!

I shot that message to you then left for my walk. I just painted my kitchen cabinets. Color on walls: Butter yellow, counters- yucky and will be replaced. Cabinets: BLACK. LOVE IT!!! Lack of fiber was referring to this sentence: relax. *exhaaaaaaaale* (thank you to everyone from that last post. I'm trying to move past some stuff, so I may not reply. But I appreciate the support like you wouldn't believe.)


What's going on? Did I miss something or was this abous #1 and strangers. HOLY CRAP that was scary for you I'm sure. PS]- I am loving Attend so far. Using it on me not the kids yet... wanted to guinea pig it out first. Only 2 days so not sure if results are happening but I'm not having seizures so that's a good sign. HA!!! How about you? Diet change working yet?

Gotta get in the shower. It's hot and sticky here today and i just walked along the canal= dust. Gross combo.

The colors sound gorgeous, and I admire that you've developed a non-tickling technique. Tres difficult.

I'm on PINS and NEEDLES about the finale. ::bites nails:: did you see the news where NBC ordered 6 more scripts? ::bites nails again::

The online colorchips don't do them justice, but if you go here I picked (under Naturals) NA 21 for the walls and NA32 for the cabinetry. (That's pretty much my house's color palate for carpeting/walls/furniture and accented in spicy pumpkins, golds, and deep reds.)

I did NOT see that, YAYNESS!!! Oh my GOSH, bring it back, people!!

Very pretty!

I didn't read the article everyone linked to because order 6 scripts isn't anywhere near the same as getting renewed, but it's showing some interest at least *g*

*sends you happy, love, funny vibes*

Painting is a great stress reducer. I've taken to reorganizing every closet, cabinet and drawer I own.

And as a proud Rutgers alum all I have to say is R!U! Rah! Rah!

*takes them and channels them into painting energy!*

I mean, SERIOUSLY. That he dared called THOSE girls what he did... One of them is a serious classical pianist with a career in music ahead of her, another is getting ready to go to law school, on and on. Hos?! What an asshole. *not even bringing up the racist shit*

Just more of what we talked about in email the other day? Grrr. /mama bear.

Hahaha, I'm trying to be in control of my life - translation: paint the kitchen. :D (I did nothing but read all weekend, so I was feeling like a slug.)

The thing about Imus was he was saying the Rutgers girls - who came in SECOND - really screwed the pooch. That they sucked. So, that alone was pretty shirty, but *shrug.* It was him saying they're Nappy-haired Hos that is most upsetting. And he called them THUGS. (Half of the team are on the honor roll.) He and his compatriots went on to talk about how gross girls with tattoos are, how lunky and disgusting female athletes are... (The callers in.)

It's the "nappy-haired" part that is a BIG uh uh. That's like calling someone a pickaninny! And then the "ho" part? Nuh uh. It just bugs me that he used such language about the team. I didn't catch the part where he was comparing the teams, I just heard the comments he made about the Rutgers girls being "nappy haired hos." That's dusgusting to me.

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.
