Today is September 6th. Does anyone else find it weird that an entire week is over in September already? I dunno what is going on latley but time is flying! It's hump day! My hump my hump my hump. I dreamt my nose swelled up 3 times it's size, and I had to have plastic surgery to fix it. Let's hope it was only a dream. In the meantime I still think it's cute! Even if my nose does fall off. It works for Michael Jackson.
Big Brother? *spoiler* Anyone else let out a scream of delight when Janelle sent Will packing? Will was an alright guy, but his arrogance pissed me off, Mike's too. Him quitting the HOH the way he did, had better blow up in his face. If I was Janelle or Erika, I'd have clapped for him and said "Class act boogie, class act" much in the way he mocked Howie when he lied to his face, then kicked him out. Mike was being just as immature. Except, I guess Howie has lost it in sequester. That was funny.
To be an effective trash picker, you need an accomplice. It is more time consuming to go it alone, and you run the risk of being spotted by neighbors, picking in their trash. I came across a great find this past weekend, and luckily I had CP in the car with me for the retrieval. I got an old ladder. It's an old wooden straight ladder that you have to lean against a house to climb. This brought me back to my childhood, when my brother and I had such a ladder, and would lean it straight up into the air, I guess hoping God would take pity on us, and hold it, while we climbed as far as we could before it fell to the ground. Sometimes it fell with us on it. I never said it was smart.
So, I spotted it, squealed with delight, and turned around and asked him to get it for me. "It's old, you can't use it!" he said. I said, "I know it's old, that is the point". He is telling me this, when I have old spools for thread, and an old shoe stretcher, and broken cobbler stands laying around the house? Whatever. I love old shit! Not old generic.....old primitive.
It's a good thing he was there because it was too big to fit in the car and it had to be stuck out the window. "It's all dirty, and painted" he said. Oh ye of little faith! I'm totally excited about my find! I told him "that's a nice ladder! You'd pay $20 for that in an antique store!" "You would" he replied. The people who trashed it had a $1 sticker on it. He just doesn't get it. I'm going to strip it back to the old rickity wood first, then I'm probably going to lean it against the wall inside and use it for a rack for afghans or something. When I get a house, I'll hang it from the ceiling for either a pot rack, or to dry herbs and flowers. I love it.
Along the lines of trash picking...or maybe this is considered stealing? CP got a new DVD burner and returned his old one to the store for a refund. It's a store that is totally taking over the world and does only bad anyways, so you shouldn't care. I sure don't. I think it's hilarious! Their going to fuck up my company too. Their selling our plants now, and they drive our prices down so we can't make money, and pretty soon they'll be running the world and no one will have jobs unless they move to Columbia. Not everyone looks like Shakira in Columbia you know. So, they deserve that shit.
