Busy Emma!

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

Felt like I should make a record of what I got done this weekend, for posterity and all that.

On Saturday:
I vacuumed, mopped, and tidied the kitchen (no small feat), vacuumed and tidied the living room, cleaned out the fridge, painted and hung a shelf, wrapped my sister’s b-day presents, vacuumed and tidied both bathrooms, did 3 loads of clothes, washed the dish towels, and washed all the bath towels…. and locked myself out of my apt, then climbed up the front of my apt to the second story balcony to let myself back in. Also, went shopping for 4 different types of mushrooms and all the ingredients to make mushroom stroganoff.

Made mushroom stroganoff (made white wine sauce, washed, cleaned, and fried 1.5lbs of mushrooms, mixed mushrooms, sauce, and other ingredients, made rice). Made chocolate-covered strawberries and oranges. Washed dishes!

Ai! And my back and neck have been killing me all this weekend.

Cat Kitty Cat

I’ve been meaning to post this picture for a while. It’s wonderful and true. For some reason it makes me think of Tripp, but it is true for any kitty-lover.

I think it may have come from xkcd.com, but I got it off some geeky facebook group, so I don’t know for sure.

Here’s another kitty picture:

In other news, I paid my $34 of taxes yesterday. Took me all day to figure out a measly $34…

In other news, whatever.

Reality Check
I Really Could Have Done Without Today

Monday, April 9th, 2007

Drunkenness is good.
(Note: I am drunk while writing this.)

Sometimes the past comes back. It’s usually not good.
Makes people all crazy. It’s like in Slaughterhouse-Five, the book I just finished reading. Except instead of you becoming unstuck in time, a little piece of time becomes unstuck and catches up with you.

Throws things all crazy. Shows things all crazy. Things goes all crazy.
No need for it really. Just let time move forward in its little way. Let everyone adjust, let everyone get used to it. Let everyone move on.
