Holy winds, Batman!

A cold front is moving in right now, which is awesome. I say "cold front" because I am Texan, and the thought of degrees hitting the upper 40s overnight is astounding for October. anelith? It's going to be in the 50 - upper 70s this weekend, but don't believe those reports of rain showers, apparently. Yes, Anelith is coming to spend the weekend with me, hurray! crazydiamondsue is coming down Saturday so the three of us can play play play while I escape my children, omg are they ever quiet??

I am off-kilter today because a) it is too windy to walk (seriously, I'll be blown over) and I feel weird without exercise every day, b) I was filled with sympathy last night watching Project Runway for JEFFREY, c) the unfortunate ending to Lemony Snickett's Series of Unfortunate Events is coming in the mail, and I really should have stuck with reading The Littlest Elf, woe.

Quick rundown of TV last night, because hahaha.


Um... I keep changing channels when this is on. Which means it is BORING. Also, am I the only one that thinks Skeet Ulrich is a poor man's Johnny Depp? Which was almost enough to keep me watching. But seriously - they're wasting electricity on a guy that's obviously going to die so we can see that the Wife!Doctor is ZOMGSEW dedicated to her job, thus putting her at odds with her cheating husband!sherriff? LAME. It's like the writers DID NOT WATCH RED DAWN. Wolverines, people. Families hiding their wimmin in storm cellars with loaded shot guns. People hoarding water and #10 cans of beans. Honda generators with precious precious gasoline. NOT TEENS HAVING A RAVE, good god.

And I like how one episode dealt with impending radiation fallout, and now the townspeople are milling about, mucking up the dust in the street, touching things, drinking water, and NO ONE IS DYING OF RADIATION SICKNESS. Did I miss something? You know what? I don't care. For Pete's sake, St. George, UT is 50 miles from an old nuclear testing site in Nevada, and an entire kindergarten class contracted leukemia. No lie. All 29 children. There's an outrageously high number of cancer in people who lived there during the late 50s and 60s, when testing was going on. And these people... ARGH. Do some research. In other words: NEXT!

Your Johnny Depp wannabe with the Perpetually Serious Face isn't enough to keep me watching, CBS!

And I have a meeeeelion things to do today.

To Do List

  • finish laundry, including putting it away
  • dust/polish
  • vacuum
  • scrub bathrooms
  • scrub kitchen
  • scrub SELF, omg ewww, Stoney
  • drive into city to pick up donation check, whoo!
  • sit on top of front desk nurse at old pediatrician's office to get complete record for Em
  • drop off at NEW pediatrician/school so Em isn't kicked out for potential Typhoid Mary status
  • refresh PetFinder site like crazy
  • prepare chicken bomb for back fence neighbors of snarky evil
  • go grocery shopping - making sure to get red food coloring for said chicken bomb
  • I AM JOKING ABOUT MAKING A BOMB. Of chicken parts. And baking soda. And fermentation. And red food coloring. And rotten chicken parts. I mentioned that, right? In a Mason jar? add a few TBSP of vinegar to all of that and hide it somewhere? And the pressure makes it explode? And the chicken stinks and is red? I WAS JOKING ABOUT THAT.
  • hire a defense attorney
  • pick a good prison name
  • make a choice: bitch or fish? I'm a lover, not a fighter. FISH it is.
  • get new lettuces in the ground - put Darthanne on guard for bunnies
  • fling corpses into Evil Neighbor's yard - KIDDING. I am kidding. Darthanne doesn't leave anything, anyway.
  • sweep/mop
  • find Jesus - check the rhodedendrons. And bus stations - he's wily.
  • get express one way ticket to hell

  • pick out handbasket - maybe we can get a seat transfer?
  • quit making to do lists and GET GOING.

Tonight: THE OFFICE. Hurrah! also, any other old a-listers get invites to a GJ game? I don't know that Will and Tom would make good additions - I write funny RPG, people, not serious. So... Huh. That was very nice to get, though.

I don't usually watch 'Jericho' as it's on the same time as 'Bones', but since the playoffs are on instead I figured I'd watch it. I had the same reaction. How are people able to walk around outside after the fallout rains came? And don't even get me started on the gas issue. I actually agree with keeping that guy alive, despite the fact that he was on the way out, I don't think it's okay to pull the plug on him if they can at all help it. But the party? I can't believe that girl even considered it. She shouldn't even be living in that house. She should've moved in with someone and pooled her gas with theirs. I know she's a self-involved teenager and all, but that's just ridiculous.
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:12 pm (UTC)
SO LAME! It's so lame. And I'm going to disagree with keeping that guy on life support when he's obviously dying. It's like pissing in the wind, but you know. With someone's life. (omg, I am so mean!)

And yeah - they should reorganize people's living arrangements to conserve energy. I like how they're all trying to ignore that the WORLD IS COMING TO AN END and they can't live the way they've been living.

No, no! Overpack! That is how you ensure comfort. I will not mock. Much. Heeee! And no one can top Sue for planning for EVERYTHING. That girl would bring her stove and fridge if she could get it in the overhead bin. That way she could whip you up a meal as thanks, you see. :D

And I just got off the phone with the old pediatrician's office and they have NO RECORD OF MY CHILD. The child the pediatrician helped deliver. (Well, she was there at any rate.) ARGH. That means Em might be kicked out of kindergarten until we can prove she's had shots!! WHAT ON EARTH????

*raises hand* I'm more with the serious than the funny (although MAN do I miss the funny at times) right now, but the thought of starting up in new game makes my head all floopy. Very nice to be asked though, yes.
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:20 pm (UTC)
I would NOT be surprised to hear that you'd been asked. *hugs you tight tight* And yeah - the thought of a new game doesn't thrill me - it wears me out. But power on, people! *misses the funny and YOU and everyone, admittedly*
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:19 pm (UTC)
SO BORING is how i feel about it - we have it on the television at BFFs since it's before lost and all we do is flip the channel and forget to care.
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:21 pm (UTC)
It is SO LAME. It could be the most exciting show on TV! And yet... *flips channel*

They need to add ZOMBIES. And oh, maybe some intrugue?

find Jesus - check the rhodedendrons. And bus stations - he's wily.

I adore you. Really I do. And go ahead and make that bomb. Because seriously? Hilarious. Although maybe not a mason jar. Can you do it in plastic so you don't have exploding glass? Cause that might hurt somebody. And you wouldn't want to do that now would you?
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:27 pm (UTC)
Hmmm. But will plastic contain the pressure, see? NOT THAT I'M GOING TO DO THIS. Or that I've skimmed the "How To Get Revenge" book. Which actually exists.

*checks yer britches fer Jesus* FOUND HIM! :D

Wow, I literally would read your grocery list, based on your To Do list. Hee.

I hope Scrappy returns soon, too. I'm sending good thoughts.
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:28 pm (UTC)
Thanks, sweetheart.

I am going to write the most intriguing grocery list EVAH! *puts cans of corn on it*

Oct. 12th, 2006 02:37 pm (UTC)
Ha! We just had snow showers about 10 minutes ago, big fluffy flakes. Of course being MI, the sun is now out...
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:41 pm (UTC)
WOW. I am all chilled to the bone with this 60 degree, 35 mph wind at the tail end of that front. /dork. Mr. S is in Ohio (by MI) and said the same thing - freaking cold.

*loves Texas, omg* Think warm thoughts! Like muffins and soup and fresh bread!
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:44 pm (UTC)

Your To-do list is so much more exciting than mine today! Of course, tomorrow...I have "1. Take over the world" on mine so I might trump you! ;)
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:46 pm (UTC)
Oooh, but I could add that to my list. The trick is to MARK IT OFF! *totally challenges you in a World Off* Hahahaha!
Oct. 12th, 2006 02:49 pm (UTC)
For the walk this weekend:

Oct 12 Scattered T-Storms 86°/68° 60%

Oct 13 Mostly Sunny 86°/66° 20%

Oct 14 Partly Cloudy 83°/62° 20%

Oct 15 AM Clouds / PM Sun 84°/67° 20%

Ugh. There goes the forecasted highs in the high 70s. ::sigh::

I can just pray for low humidity.


Best ever line: find Jesus - check the rhodedendrons. And bus stations - he's wily.
Oct. 12th, 2006 03:05 pm (UTC)
OMG I am thinking about you SO HARD!! And seriously, I would NOT be surprised if some of this cool weather inched over.

I have Jesus handcuffed in the closet - I'll make him look into it. YOU ARE MY INSPIRATION, IRENE!! You are going to kick ass, and you will lose no more toenail! Jesus says so!

Oct. 12th, 2006 02:58 pm (UTC)
I will remember the chicken bomb some day when I can use it; however, I seem to be the only one in the neighborhood with a nose. This morning the fog smells of five different brands of drier sheets and burnt Korean BBQ.

Julia, too damned many of my neighbors start their commutes at 4:30am
Oct. 12th, 2006 03:07 pm (UTC)
Seriously. The bomb is NOT BEING MADE BY ME, Mr. FBI. Ahem. I totally want some of that Korean BBQ, though. And maybe a chicken bomb for the doctor's office because they have lost ALL RECORDS for my youngest. ALL. Every one.

BOGGLED. And freaking out.
Oct. 12th, 2006 03:09 pm (UTC)
Agree re: Skeet Ulrich. I didn't like him in Scream. Also OMG what happened to Jeffrey?!

I've given up on television and now only get my shows in DVD form. Except for the Daily Show and the Colbert Report! And when VH1 does those weekend marathons of ANTM! It's totally the real-life equivalent of finding a fic you like, realising it hasn't been finished, and bookmarking the rest of the chapters as they come out but not reading til it's DONE.

Yeah, got one for Hugh. wtf, it's all friends-only! :O ...I got nothing to do for the next three hours, might apply. If nothing else, would be fodder for mean-spirited entertainment.
Oct. 12th, 2006 03:15 pm (UTC)
I wondered if it was Friends only, or if they've just not started yet. Huh. I don't think I'm a fit, at any rate, not to mention the lack of HEART, omg.

I HAVE THEORIES ON JEFFREY. Mostly taken from other places and spoilers. :D And I'm all for watching shows at my leisure from bit torrents. Because I HATE commercials, and I pay for premium service, so bring it, TV Network bitches! *flashes gang signs*

That's funny, I thought Skeet Ulrich was a rich man's Kevin Federline. Which is still bad. Also I am now intrigued by this movie with apocalyptic wolverines!
Oct. 12th, 2006 03:34 pm (UTC)
Ahahahaha, if Depp and K-Fed had a baby (a million doves burst into flame at that thought) and raised him in LA, it would be Skeet.

RED DAWN! It's hilariously bad and wonderful - and stars a pre-Dirty Dancing Patrick Swayze! Ahahahaha. It's AWESOMEly bad.
Oct. 12th, 2006 04:31 pm (UTC)
Yay for The Office tonight!

Omg, dun make the chicken bomb stoneee!

I watched half of 30 Rock (I nearly forgot it was on) but what I saw looked pretty promising. Did you get a chance to catch it?
Oct. 12th, 2006 04:44 pm (UTC)
I won't! I will not make the Chicken Bomb, omg EWWW. Also, hello, terrorist action, NO.

*shakes fist menacingly, though*

I did, have emailed you re: 30 Rock!
Oct. 12th, 2006 10:55 pm (UTC)
Now see it sucks when I miss a cold front at home. But I'm in Boston this week and I have been told something is blowing in here tonight and tomorrow. Which really does suck since I didn't bring a jacket with me. Enjoy the weather and your weekend.
Oct. 12th, 2006 11:17 pm (UTC)
Ooooh. Time to shop? *rubs your arms* Thank you, and you too!

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.

Time Wot It Is
