In contention for boringest post

What to write about. Hmmm. The weather? Always good for a laugh, that. (It's muggy and rainy.) There is a report of Bin Laden's death being played down by world leaders. Seems he got sick with the typhoid. If true, that would mean he had ingested feces-tainted water containing Salmonella bacteria. It's probably untrue though, we'll see.

The renovation continues, as does the unstaunchable flow of dollars. It seems my old nemesis Visa and I have reconciled, and I keep trying to reassure myself by saying, "At least you're getting airmiles." Today, we've got a few places to sand and reputty, and a few more baseboards and moldings to put up, and then we're all done but the painting.

We scheduled the moving truck for next Sunday. We don't even have any boxes yet. And there's this piddly little matter of working all week. Looks like we'll have to pull all this together next Saturday. (This is a paragraph I would normally delete, but since we're competing for boringest post....)

Woke up at 3am this morning and then stayed in bed, flipping this way and that, spouse having fallen asleep on the couch. He is actually getting up right now as I type, the earliest I think I've ever seen him rise. Good. Time to get to work. Good Sunday everyone.

I am sorry but this post is not boring in the least. One can hope that Osama is dead but the truth is probably that he has the sniffles. Why did you make Spouse sleep on the couch? A good Sunday to both of you as well.

You need sleep or it will get worst.

Did you get the help you wanted?
You know the "M&M's"

Take care of yourself guys!?

Good luck on the rest of the remodel and the move. Moving is a most stressful and and exhausting job. I hate it.

I assume we'll ses vids of you and spouse in the new digs. (We can skip vids of porn star - who I assume is on his way out or is out).

Yep, boring... but that's okay. You don't have to be fascinatingly witty all the time.

I'm in cleaning mode today too; the termite inspector is coming tomorrow!

Great Sunday to you and Spouse!

Freak Magnet said...

I don't really think any peek into your life is boring. Maybe not always incredibly, overwhelmingly fascinating, but certainly not boring.

GayProf said...

Ugh -- Sounds stressful. Just think, though, how great you will feel once you are all moved.

Snooze said...

The process of moving always sucks, but being in a new place is fun. Just one week and it will be over.

I didn't know there was a competition for boringest post, but if there is, you'd probably win for "boringest post nominee with the most comments."

Hope your Sunday goes well.

I had the news on in the background this weekend and couldn't get over how much "this-just-in" airtime was being spent on Bin Ladens being alive or not alive.

Wouldn't "we simply just don't know" have been enough?

The only thing I hate more than moving is moving other people's stuff....The "case of beer thing" got tired as soon as we all turned 30.

mainja said...

toobusy - yeah, what we've started doing is hiring movers then getting people over (for the forementioned beer) to help us unpack. one year i had a massage therapist in for the afternoon who would do sitting massages, everyone paid for their own, but i had a lottery for one free one, everyone who showed up before 10am got entered into the draw for a free massage. it was a big hit, i'd do it again.

Kick your patience level to the max next Saturday. Moving sucks!

I point my mouse to the comment button and rest it there for a moment. I squeeze with my forefinger on the mouse, thereby depressing it. The comment button appears to squash in, signifying that the computer has received the appropriate command.

There, you satisfied? I'm pretty sure that was more boring than your post. I can do more, if you like!

Sounds terribly exciting to me. The planning, the nerves, the mounting debt. It's the rollercoaster nearing the crest of the first big drop. Wheeee!
