Epic Bastion Of Lazitude
Today is Friday.

I have retrieved the empty trash can from the curb.

I now plan to be on vacation for at least the rest of the day.

Current Mood: lethargic

Weather Report
Currently snowflakes are falling at about the same rate as the pretty orange and yellow leaves. The birds at the feeder outside are not impressed.

November Already?
I am so lazy when it comes to writing things online. Well, that and anything else really.

I was just sitting here by myself and thought, If I had a statue made of the cat's rear end in honor of some achievement, would that make it a Cat Ass Trophy? How awful! Then I looked around and realized that no one was in here to share that bit o' crazy with and put it on here instead.

Probably A Slumber Party. Outside. In The Rain.
A neighbor is either murdering young women or filming a horror movie. Either way it sounds like fun is being had.

I Was Busy Today
Life pro tip - Get inherently foolish people to do your yardwork as they will trim bushes and weeds in the pouring rain.

Nonsense And Bugs
I asked my youngest spawn if he had any opinions on the lamp post in the front yard. Not surprisingly he had no opinion about it. I told him that that was likely why it was rusting.

The stink bugs have found us. Cedarwood oil can only do so much.

Wednesday Of Questionable Actions
I can't decide what is pissing me off more right now, that my body has decided that wheat products are the enemy or that breaded shrimp smell too good to pass up. Apparently a handful of breaded deliciousness causes my stomach to puff up as though I had consumed an entire set of truck tires and I'm starting to feel even more lethargic than usual. Bleh. I also consumed some french fries that I nearly had to share with a greedy spider. As I reached for a fry I saw something move across my dish! It was a cellar spider that was vacationing in the foreign land of my desk and decided to sample the local cuisine. It scurried away and I finished my food. Cleaning more thoroughly in this part of the house may be a good idea, or at least setting out spider-sized dishes of potatoes?

Cannibal Valley Sunday?
With each passing day I am becoming more convinced that my neighbors are murdering and roasting small children in their back yard. Lots of child-yelling coupled with lovely smokey barbecue smells have been happening all weekend. (I wouldn't mind the kid noise so much if a couple of them wouldn't shriek. Loudness happens but if a kid that I'm in charge of makes a noise like that and there isn't a horror movie scenario being played out then that kid has to come in and stop playing for a while. Oddly enough it's a thing I've not had to do often but it gets the point across.) I can't see what is going on in the neighbors' yard due to an overgrown fence row so I have to fill in the blanks based on what I can hear. Dance music, children yelling, smoky food smells...mass murder, yes?

The area of the house under the washer, dryer and refrigerator are really really clean right now. Before anyone starts thinking I actually decided to clean there out of a sense of hygiene I'll point out that the hose in the back of the washer came out of it's drain-thing and dumped water all over the floor, making it necessary to clean it up. Before that it was all horrible and not given a second thought.

The cats are all concerned about the loud children, so much so that all three of them went outside, sat on the porch and stared in the direction of the noise for several minutes before stomping back inside. The tortoise has been in a climby mood all day and has flipped himself over onto his back four times so far, needing to be rescued three of those times. I really hope he finds something else to do soon since with my attention span I'm not the most reliable rescuer.

Writing on here is not getting the strawberry patch weeded.

Laziness And At Least One Male Intruder
Okay so yeah I've not been on here in forever. No good reason other than I've been so boring that I can't muster up enough narcissism to even discuss how the dullness is affecting me. Bleh. Garden keeps doing garden stuff, there are bugs, it's hot. We went to Incon back in July, it was fun.

There is a CRICKET in the basement. It's being loud which means that it's a single gentleman cricket. I would go down there and poison the hell out of him before he brings all the girls to the house with his Skrillex-like orchestrations but fuck it, it's 4:30 in the morning, it can wait.

Fuck, it's 4:30 in the morning. WTF am I doing up?

Family Resemblence
I was looking at pictures of farmland and pointed out the round hay bales. My son responded with "Yes. What other color would they be?"

I apologized to him for his genetics.

I Am A Bad Influence On The Pets
The next door neighbors are having some work done on their house. Today there are guys with a cement mixer working on, I think the back porch and steps. This is causing my cats to freak out because they aren't used to anyone actually accomplishing anything. One keeps running to a window, looking outside for a minute then looking back at me as is to say "Those guys aren't sitting at a computer playing Overwatch and eating cheesecake! What is this madness?!"

Nature Is Loud
There is at least one adult male cricket outside the window where I'm sitting, showing off his chirping abilities. He's probably looking for a mate. I do not approve of insect hookups happening in my yard. Unfortunately he's in an area I don't like to use bug spray in, since the tortoise and cats hang out there. This means I have to listen to this six-legged Romeo until he decides to shut up, or he gets hungry and snacks on some of the poison bait I put out. The bait isn't where other critters can get to it but bugs could if so inclined. It's corn masa, molasses, borax and water made into a dough. Super helpful for pest control. If only that one cricket would get hungry soon...

Small Successes
Yesterday I got ranch dressing in the coffee pot while making a sandwich. Today I made a sandwich without causing any problems for the small appliances. Progress!

What Have I Overlooked?
Today was pretty decent. I got some yardwork done despite it being about 91 degrees out, Will Power won the Indy 500, the cats didn't get stepped on despite multiple attempts at diving under my feet.

It's too nice. What unforeseen BS is going to happen?

Ungrateful Garden
I watered the garden this afternoon which means it will probably rain tonight. As I watered I noticed that all the weeds were perking up and looking healthy but the plants I actually put there were just like Meh, whatever.

So not fair.

I Am Tired... I Think
Today I mowed the grass and pulled weeds and reminded myself why I don't like the weed eater and helped my youngest spawn fix That One Part Of The Fence and poured boiling water on ant hills and made food and washed dishes and kicked over the cats' water and tracked it all over the kitchen before cleaning it up.

I feel far too okay right now. When am I going to crash? When?
