Tired of the BREAKING!

Ignoring all major unhappinesses entirely, within the past week I’ve dealt with:

  • a broken car (now returned, thankfully. iPod hookup still kaflooey though)
  • a broken laptop (wine + laptop = bad juju. also, thankfully, now working. yah for quick thinking and a spray bottle of water!)
  • a burnt-out lightbulb (still burnt out…waaaaaaaaay too high in bedroom ceiling to reach. approach TBD)
  • a broken puppy-treat canister (1 gallon size, almost full. yah Dyson hand vac and puppy not knowing how to get off couch)
  • a broken stereo component (still officially broken, but I’ve figured out a workaround)
  • (ETA) Did I mention the puppy chewed my *good*, new shoes? (not her fault, as she just thought she’d found a chewey, but still…)

Notice to Universe: Enough with the Entropy Already.

    I meant to toss some virtual hugs your way after your last post – was thinking about you today, even. *Hugs*!! Hope the gremlins go away and leave your stuff alone!

    Would you be available to do lunch sometime?

    1. gina

      I’d love that — what about next Tuesday or Friday? (Or Mon/Tue of the week following?)

      thanks for the hugs!

    a burnt-out lightbulb (still burnt out…waaaaaaaaay too high in bedroom ceiling to reach. approach TBD)

    We’ve got a long extend-a-pole with various lightbulb changing attachments. (You’ve seen our house. We needed this.) I’d be happy to bring it by and help counter a small amount of your entropy.

    And speaking of coming by … do you have plans Friday evening?

    *hug*

      Howdy

      Tried to post earlier, was in class all day (Sharepoint — eek!) and PDA was not being as online friendly as I wish.

      Can’t this Friday — you know me — *hate* being alone on weekends under the best of circumstances, so I’m booking as much as possible. What about either Friday 16th or Sat. 10th?

      Thanks for offer of bulb-changing technology — I’ll take you up on that! (It can wait ’till we see each other; thankfully I am of the Many Lights [not thousand points of] type).

    Your pom *actually* chews things up?.. I can’t get my Audrey to even *look* at her bone. :-)

    -I’m just a local friendly neighborhood Penguinmint..

    1. gina

      ROTFLOL. If it were only bones I’d be happy!

      She is a monster chewer — can take down a Greenie in seconds! And then there are the nice leather shoes…sigh.

      How old is Audrey?

      1. monztre

        My responses must not be getting through on the site, I did receive your response and responded in kind, and resent it too!

        Audrey hepdog is 3!

        :)

        1. gina

          I think the site must hate me!

          Audrey’s a doll — how many lbs.? She looks like she’s about the same size as India.

          So, given that you found my site, you can prolly figure out my realy email addy, eh?

          ;-)

          1. monztre

            One would hope I am that resourceful

          2. gina

            ROTFLOL. Yes, indeed, one would hope ;-)

          3. monztre

            I am at xiloa on 9th st right now, ever been?

          4. gina

            No, I haven’t — friend of mine reviewed it recently on his blog and said it was delicious, tho.

          5. monztre

            Food is explensivid!

          6. gina

            But good, yes?

          7. monztre

            Expensive+splendid=explensivid

            So yes!

          8. gina

            OK — that makes (oddly) sense!

        2. gina

          “I did receive your response and responded in kind, and resent it too!”

          Upon re-reading that parsed as “resent it too” in the “angry about it” sort of way… :-)

          1. monztre

            “frustrated about it” at best.. but only with the technology… I emailed you directly everything I sent using that beastly site.. ;-)
