Nearly forgot it was Sunday again. Everything blurs together lately.
I wrote about a thousand words last week. I told a friend that I had the words but not the gumption. Turns out I don't have either. When I sat down to write, I got the thou out and it felt shitty. I know, I know, you can fix shitty, but it's hard to keep writing when you know what's coming out is shitty.
No reading, marketing, or editing. Blerg.
The other day, Hubs and I took apart the pipes under the kitchen sink and cleaned them out. The sink was backing up, so it was a must-do. Talk about gross. And there was one bend that had something I can only describe as a bezoar in it. When it hit the bathtub, it clunked. (We put the pipes in a bucket and scrubbed them out in the bathtub for ease of post-cleaning cleaning.) No clue what the hell that was. And it's not like we've never cleaned these pipes, so it was our mess and not the previous owners'.
Yesterday, I made ice cream using a recipe Silver James posted on her blog a while back. As of bedtime, it wasn't quite hard enough to eat yet - more like a firm mousse than ice cream - but I have hopes for today. (My freezer* has this thing it does where it freezes most things solid, but other things - like those liquid freezer pops - not.) If it works, I'll drop my tweaked recipe here. Hers was coffee ice cream, I made chocolate.
Other than that, I have been thoroughly unmotivated for a couple weeks now. It's hotter than Blue Billy blazes which makes exercise, fishing, and baking unpleasant. I'm disheartened by the world which makes me want to crawl into a hole and pull the dirt in over myself. Stuffs. As such, I've been spending too much time playing free poker. At least there I have the illusion of productivity and have almost $800K in chips**. (Over a million in the play-money slots. Woohoo.) Friday I took 20K in chips and built it to over 200K. Yay. Would that it were real money.
Here's hoping the next week goes better. How did your week go?
* My freezer and fridge are on the same control. If I turn it up (which is actually down), things in the fridge start to freeze, too. Poorly engineered. Gah. On the upside, all the meats are solid as a rock, so no worries about food poisoning.
** All without buying chips, which you can do at this site. I took the amounts they gave me and built them up to where I am now.
