Randomosity Tuesday

Because I can't think of one topic to fill an entire post...

It's 5am and, like clockwork, there's the cat wanting to be fed.  I can hear her meowing at me from the kitchen. 

Okay, she's fed now.  What was I saying?

For some reason, I can't seem to make myself write at the computer.  I sit down with my notebook and the words start flowing, but here?  Nope.  Of course, I can't write in the notebook for very long before my hand starts to whine about the abuse.  Meh.

We haven't had any snow here since November.  Even then, only a dusting.  And I'm okay with that.

Hubs is loving the new exercise bike.  When I first suggested getting one last spring, he wasn't enthused.  So I didn't get one then.  We started talking about it again last month, and he went online to research the best one for me to get.  You know, for me.  He might use it here and there.  Right.  The last time he went out for a walk, which would be last day because the weather ahead was gross, I went ahead and ordered it.  Which is what I should've done last spring.  That'll learn me.

One should not use foaming cleaner in the dishwasher.  I was just so sick of trying to clean the damn dishwasher, I didn't think ahead.  I spritzed that crap all over in there and then turned the dishwasher on.  And ended up with a puddle of suds on the floor.  Which led to me freaking out, worried that the cleaner had eaten the gasket somehow and I'd ruined a $400 piece of equipment.  Went to the product website, and it actually recommends using it in the dishwasher.  (Just not the foaming kind.)  When the cycle ended, the dishwasher was still full of bubbles.  Ran it again.  Still bubbles.  Ran in on the full cycle with the extra rinse.  Took for-freakin'-ever, but no bubbles.  Yay.  But it's still not as clean as I would've hoped.  Eh, live and learn.  Oh, and once the bubbles were gone, the dishwasher stopped leaking.  =oO

Got a mouse this morning in the garage.  We get about one a month.  SNAP.

I'm using a 2016 day calendar on my desk.  The day of the week is always wrong, but I like the pictures.  I can't buy a new one just like this because they discontinued them.  Derp.  January 15th in 2016 was a Friday, btw.

Okay, that ought to be quite enough out of me.  Got anything to add?

  1. I slept for about 45 minutes last night. I'm about to hit the wall. The cat was so freaked out, she got in bed with me instead of meowing for food at 5 a.m. Dang but she can yowl. That's when I got my 45 winks in--from about 5:30 to 6:15.

    Needless to say, I've been sluggish all day but I did manage to get BLOOD & FIRE uploaded. I still need to update my website but I'll wait until tomorrow. My brain is pablum at the moment.

    A house catty-corner and down one from us sold at auction. There's a roll-off dumpster there and workers have been clearing out the house. I'm so tempted to sneak over there and dumpster dive now. Evidently, furniture was left behind.

    I printed out a manual I thought was 19 pages long. Turns out it was 159 pages. I managed to have ink but now I need to buy more because I have to print some pictures out for a class I'm teaching Saturday. Of course, a winter storm is forecast for Saturday. Chance of significant (over an inch) of snow and frigid temps. Don't mind the snow. Hate the cold.

    I'm two shows away from getting through my back-list of LIVE PD on the DVR. Yay. Enjoying HOMICIDE SQUAD: ATLANTA on Thursday nights, and new FIRST 48.

    I think it's nap time. If I can sleep now, get up around 5, then I might still be able to sleep tonight. Later tater!
