Nescafe rabbit

Growing up...

We bought an armoire - the kind you have to put together with a screwdriver.
We threw out the old $5.00 Goodwill couch with the broken arm that had been occupying the space beside the couch and underneath Frodo (dreamy sigh. Froooodo...) today. Hauled it out to the alleyway.
I kept the cushions. They're in the library, on the floor.
And we put the armoire together and then spent like an hour putting things on it. Dishes, glasses, nativity sets (one from France, traditional sculpted clay figurines; the other from the Holy Land, olive wood) with no baby Jesus in them yet. And it looks so grown up! I was so proud of myself for it.

I laughed so fucking hard.

And now...now that I've been spreading LiveJournal codes around the world (anyone else who knows me want one?) it's bedtime. Goodnight.

Drill bits

I called Daddy wanting to know where the drill was, so I could drill holes to hang the DVD racks from. He told me.
I found the drill bits, but no drill. I even went into the Evil Room(TM) looking for it, so now I'm all cold and freaked-out and feel dirty. I hate the Evil Room(TM). It has paint all over the walls with dead rock stars and pentagrams and stuff, and it's cold and I feel like someone's watching me in there. Someone dead. And that icky watched-feeling follows me upstairs when I leave.
The rest of the house is very safe. Just the Evil Room(TM) is a Bad Place(TM).

And I don't have the drill, so I can't hang DVD racks, so I guess I have to clean instead. Take my mind off things.

(no subject)

Megatokyo, on schoolgirl outfits. I should get one.
Brakes are getting scary on poor Michel-Ange. Hence, he's going into the shop. I tried explaining to him that if he would just straighten up and fix them himself I wouldn't have to put him in the shop. He tried, he really did. But they're just not working right. Push the brake pedal in about halfway to get any braking at all. Monday appointment. I wish car insurance worked like medical insurance, with a copay for mechanics.

Stopped by Office Depot today to pick up paper and printer ink (since I'll be printing the notes for Pathology out as soon as I can convince myself that I need to study for this fardling exam), and got a few other things too. Okay, $70 worth of other things. But they were useful other things that I was going to have to get anyway. Then went to check out.
Their credit card lines are broken.
The guy had to call up the credit card place and input everything touchtone, by hand. And the Mastercard line didn't work, so I grabbed a Visa instead. I have credit cards coming out my ears, and only ever use two of them. Go me.
Can you imagine - the holiday season, and each credit card transaction takes at least 3 extra minutes? Gah.
