Been busy? Well, sorta. Kinda. But, sometimes itâ€™s so boring that I just havenâ€™t anything to write. Even though this blog is dedicated to the every-day minutia(?) of the average American life, sometimes Iâ€™m too boring even for myself.
Letâ€™s see: Been running back and forth from here to Belfair almost daily to sign different papers for the house weâ€™re trying to buy. We had the house inspection last Thursday and had to be there early for that. (Issac?) did a great job. Only thing that was really troubling to me was the heater in the MIL apartment shorting out and popping the circuit breaker when we tested it. Thatâ€™s gotta be replaced. Then more papers to sign trying to work all that out. And even more to sign when the Sellers respond. I didnâ€™t sign this much to join the Navy!
Other than that; just not much going on. Iâ€™ve been out to the property a couple of times but, now that I donâ€™t really have a plan to accomplish something that will get us to building a house, I just donâ€™t do anything but sit in the sun (if itâ€™s out) and read. Started practicing building rock walls with the boulders Iâ€™ve dug up but I canâ€™t even hardly justify the fuel to do that now that we arenâ€™t building up there. Bummer! I do so enjoy just being out there!
Speaking of which: had a really nice day the other day and I managed to just lazy around the property laying in the sun and reading for a few hours. Would have stayed out there later than I did but got a headache. (WHERE are these damned headaches coming from?) Since then itâ€™s either been cold or raining. Usually both (like today!). Ah well. Thatâ€™s Warshington weather.
Sat around a couple of hours last night playing all the music videoâ€™s Iâ€™ve collected from various places. Wish I could write music! Iâ€™ve been trying to learn a couple of different programs (Finale & Fruity Loops mostly) but havenâ€™t the musical background to really compose anything. Fruity Loops gives me a lot of instruments to use and I can get down to the note level; but has a high learning curve. Finale does the same thing but gives you a music sheet that you place notes on. Again with the high learning curve. I practice (sometimes!) on the keyboard Phillip is letting me use, but I just donâ€™t seem to have the time!
Iâ€™m too old for this shit!
Been watching the news (online) about the Swine Flu. Sounds like the furor we had over the SARS scare a few years ago. That came to nothing. I think this Swine Flu thing will come to nothing also. Oh, I could be wrong; but enough other people are worried about it that itâ€™ll get taken care of. Funniest thing about it (if there is anything funny) is the Scientists looking for another name for the Swine Flu cause they donâ€™t want people to hate Pigs (or have it associated with Pigs or something like that). Go figure! This virus had genetic material from humans, birds & SWINE. So I guess you could call it the Flying ManPig Flu. (Or the HBS Flu?)
That brings an interesting question to mind: If Muslims (of all denominations) canâ€™t consume Pork because itâ€™s an “unclean” animal; what happens if they catch a virus that contains genetic material from Swine? I mean, other than the obvious. (The obvious being that youâ€™ve caught a VIRUS and we havenâ€™t any way to treat (kill) a virus without killing the host.)
Keep getting notices that I have a new member joining my blog; Cool! Although I have to wonder about your level of sanity for reading this drivel, I do appreciate you checking in. I just wish yâ€™all would leave more than a user name and e-mail address. Tell me something about yourselves! The two most popular e-mail domains for people joining my blog are Gmail and Mail.Ru. Mail.Ru is in Russia! Now why would Russians be interested in my blog?
Let me tell you a secret…
That got your attention, didnâ€™t it!?
