So on Sunday we bought a cow.

Well, half a cow.

Well... a quarter of a cow. Technically.


We go up to Temecula...

...I really didn't intend to tell this story right now - someone remind me later - but long story short, we have half a cow's liver.

Let me illustrate something for you here. Half of this cow's damn liver is about the size of my head. What the hell do cows need such ginormous livers for, anyway? All they eat is grass. Honestly.


So it falls to me to slice this thing into nice thin slices for consumption. I suppose I could have asked Dave, but... nah, I got this. Except it's really slippery. And unwieldy. And there's still a vein here...

I spent the next half hour hacking this thing into pieces with a running commentary, which Dave found highly amusing, but since he won't get a Twitter all of my hilarious little quips are lost to the sands of time... or something.

Long story short - wow, that was difficult. And gross. And unwieldy. But the organic grass-fed beef is tasty.

I hear that Dave is on the phone, and I suspect that he's talking to Carly.

I remember the days when I was all Overly Attached Girlfriend regarding Carly. I still think she was up to no good, but I'm not all nutjob paranoia about it now. The very subject of Carly amuses me... because I'm pretty sure she's insane. Seriously, I hear the name 'Carly' and I want to get a beer and some popcorn and settle in because I know the story's going to be hilarious.

And! It's Lying Monday! How appropriate!

But I won't complain about a window sale. At least, not this one.

So. I have been in a foul mood all day. Largely because it's so freaking cold in my house. There are other reasons, but that's a big one. Hard to be cheerful when you're freezing your ass off.

I've played Secret of Mana for most of my free time today. Don't feel like Mapling - I don't like the Angelic Buster, I'm bored of my Kaiser, and I don't feel like leveling my Phantom or grinding levels on my Luminous or Mercedes right now.

I think I'll go back through my Livejournal and de-privatize some of (most?) my old entries. Because so many people read my journal now, and out of all those people, like all of them would totally go back and read crap from ten years ago. I'm such a narcissist.

*watching Arbitrage*

Me: "One does not simply leave Susan Sarandon. She turns into an alien beast when angry, and noms on folks."
Dave: "I thought that was Sigourney Weaver."
Me: "No, she's the one that kills the aliens."

I'm a nerd. Also strange.

Saw this this morning and was all ireuhtldkjgdblufhtl FOU-LU IS IN MARVEL VS CAPCOM 3?!????? I WILL GO BUY IT NOW. MUST HAVE THIS GAME. FOU-LU SJAKGFLRJTHILHKJSDHF.

Yeah, he is, but not as a playable character, so it isn't quite worth buying the game over... but maybe - just maybe - his and other BoF characters' presence in the game as card effects (if I have my info correct) will reawaken interest in another BoF game... which I most certainly will have to buy.

In the meantime, I sense another playthrough of BoFIV in my near future.

*very seriously considers building a new LJ layout, this time with Fou-Lu instead of Beatrix*
bouldersandbrews: (Ursula - Yeah right)

Speaking of FFVIII, I don't think I'll rename Squall "Jackass" this playthrough. Depends on how much he annoys me this time :P

I feel special. Not everyone has a cartoon character based off them.

*sneaks upstairs to shut the front door so the just-pulled-up-outside noisy neighbors don't wake up Dave during his nap*

*thinks: heh, ninja skills, nap remains undisturbed.*

*burps loudly*

*thinks: dammit.*

Back when I was in perfect shape, I did yogalaties.
I swear by that, and stair stepping.
Stair stepping will kick your ass,but it's fun and works your thighs and buns.
Christina Rothwell
...I have no idea what that is.
Not stairstepping, I know what that is.
Jessica Purser
yoga and pilates.
Christina Rothwell
Jessica Purser
Put together
so it's soothing while you're mentally screaming haha
i never once got used to yogalates, and I did it every day for two years
Christina Rothwell
Wow, I need to look into this.
Ask my fitness guru about it.
Jessica Purser
it's up your alley.
Christina Rothwell
Sitting on my ass with a beer and a game is up my alley.

and this is why you're my sister. besides, you know, being biologically related.

Truer words were never spoken.

So I'm bored doing my guild tasks (no, I mean really bored), and I decide that I need something to do while doing guild tasks (or rather waiting for them to be done). I think about it - Chrono Trigger? Nah. I want to read something. My book is upstairs though. Too lazy to get up and go get it. So I look online for somewhere to read books online free. Come across I'm like ooh, this is promising. They have their e-reader open and they automatically have a book loaded onto it. It's the first Twilight book.

Now, this is how lazy I'm feeling this morning. It's there. It's already loaded. Again, really lazy. So I just start reading it.


I am completely unimpressed so far. Mind you, I was prepared to be unimpressed, so this is unsurprising. But damn, how can people like this crap? It's not the worst writing I've ever seen, but it's definitely at the low end of the spectrum.

Edit: Oh my word. This book is so hilariously bad. I don't think I've ever read a book that made me lol as often as this one is.
bouldersandbrews: (Default)
lol. Someone apparently got trapped in the mail jail and bent the bars to get out. It's really an amazing thing to see. So the HOA or someone has called someone to fix the mail jail (because the world would end if the mail weren't locked up twice instead of just being locked up in everyone's individual boxes), and the dude is just standing there staring at it. Don't feel bad, dude, I wouldn't know what to do about it either.

With the entire last week's debacle (no one say the m-word), I totally forgot to impart this unto you.


I know, we knew that already. But here's what happened:

Carly's been promising that Dave would totally get the window order for this job she's been working on, but she's been dawdling and stalling and whingeing and whining and all, so I've been suspicious. (But let's be honest here, if she helped a little old lady across the street, rescued a busful of nuns, and then donated all of her groceries to starving children in Ethiopia, I'd still be suspicious.)

On Monday, Mike Mills calls Dave and is pissed, because he's talked to another window dealer who's bragging all over the place how he sold windows to Carly for this job, how they're sold and probably already installed.

Hilarity ensues. Instead of being pissed about it, Dave is highly amused. The laughter echoes around the house for fifteen minutes, and then he calls Carly. "Carly, are you being completely straight with me about this?"

Oh yeah, yeah Dave. I have no idea why he'd say that. Oh, we have no windows here.

So Dave drives by the job site the next day - THE WINDOWS ARE IN THE GARAGE. How mysterious. They must have just appeared there out of thin air.

Now, to be fair to Carly, maybe she was honestly unaware that these windows had been purchased. In this case, however, the question begs to be asked: since her crewmen were there (Dave saw them), and they were working on the site, how could she not have known about the windows?

I'm just sayin'.

Therefore, Carly has contributed to our new holiday, Lying Monday, to be commemorated on the second Monday of January.

Christina: Honey, they want me to be a member of Triple A. I don't have a car.
Dave: *chuckles*
Christina: *reading the letter* "We feel that you are most like the rest of our auto club members." What, they don't have cars either?

I'm doing better today. I still cry whenever I think about the Raisin for very long. It's a serious adjustment in my thinking. The Raisin was such a big part of my life.

I was making some split pea soup, and my stomach started growling. As has been my custom for the past few months, I started to say, "All right, Raisin, I'm getting us some food", but I stopped and whispered, "...oh."

I started crying when a midwife called me today and I had to inform her that I no longer needed a midwife. I started crying when we were watching Hotel Rwanda and they got reunited at the end.

I knew that the emotional aspects of a miscarriage were hard, but, much as a lot of other things, I never realized how hard until I find myself going through it.
