So, I’ve been nearly absentee lately. Terribly behind on responding to messages and comments, etc., but the end of the year has had my real world life hopping. Work, work, work and no time to even think about my trip at the end of the month! One more week of work and then off on vacation until January 11th – ahh, this is the way to do it! Okay, first off, something I’ve been wanting to talk about but was:
Today’s title brought to us by the letter R is just my nutso way of saying that there will be a cacophony of topics ahead. A little of everything and little of value to world peace. Does the World Need Superman? Friday night, I met up with some friends, Chris and Dan, to catch Superman Returns. I had hope to see it Wednesday night after work, but work would have no part of that idea. I worked late every day. So, Friday, I scooted home and then off to meet … Continue reading
So, I’m relaxing in front of the TV trying to read 1776, cats by my feet when I hear… something in the litter box.. huh? Count cats… 1.. 2… that’s it… what’s in the litter box? Leo, my six month old apparently hits the same conclusion seconds before I do. We both race into the kitchen, just as… EEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!! Okay, so I scream like a girl when there are woodland creatures in my house! A chipmunk comes flying out of the box with Leo behind him. I grab Bear and … Continue reading
When I moved into my townhouse, darn near 5 years ago, there was a stain in the dining room carpet that would not come out. Not being a huge fan of wall to wall in the dining room, I decided that one day, I’d replace it with hardwood and I put a big area rug over it. Lately, I’d come close to replacing it with laminate, but there were a couple of reasons I did not: 1) I can tell the difference with wood having grown up on oak floors; … Continue reading
I read something similar to this about a year ago when I moved to Alpharetta. Although I have an Alpharetta address, I technically live in unicorporated Fulton County. It’s kind of funny. I grew up inside the city limits of Montezuma, GA. My entire life before this I never lived in the “country.” Of course, there’s nothing very country about where I live. A block away are two shopping centers, little strip malls, restaurants, a couple of fast food places, etc. There’s more on that corner than in my home … Continue reading
I haven’t posted anything in quite awhile. The time I normally used to post messages has been taken up e-mailing a new friend, Melanie, who I met last night at the Starbucks in the Barnes & Noble in Alpharetta. We talked for hours. I’m sure we were both a little nervous at first meeting in person, but after a bit, it was like we had sat and talked like that for years. Had a great time and hope we have a chance for dinner or something soon.
Many days without an update but I’ve been relaxing at home with my parents. Friday my Mom and I went to Macon, Warner Robins and Byron and spent too much money shopping. Primarily I got stuff for around my house, but I also got Megatron and Sky Byte from Transformers: Robots in Disguise. I figured on liking Megatron most but he has so many alternate modes and I’ve been less inclined to learn them. Sky Byte is pretty neat. There’s something about his robot mode that reminds me of Thunderwing … Continue reading
