Geekery

Long, long break.

Why come back?

WordPress has a new theme call Intergalactic.

I had to check it out.

Not right for my blog.

I’m still using Under the influence.

But anything space…

I’m such a geek.

Procrastination

I should be preparing a presentation.

I got asked to do it on Friday.
I didn’t have time to work on it during the weekend because of other job things that needed doing.

I did start on it at work this morning before getting rudely interrupted by my boss asking:
“Can you please go to this meeting in two hours and present xxxx for our leaders”?

It wasn’t really a question…..
So of course I did it.

So now, instead of having the evening free, I have to finish the presentation that’s due tomorrow morning.

No wonder I’m procrastinating.

Presently I’m doing it by blogging here, something I haven’t done for ages.

The Olympics 2014

I’ll be watching a few events from the 2014 Olympics, in spite of Russia’s abysmal laws against people like me and the IOC’s cowardly behaviour when ever the issue is raised. Athletes are told they will be thrown out of the olympics if they sport a rainbow pin or anything else showing public support for LGBT-people. I’m not impressed by the sponsors either or our own national olympic committee and our politicians. Our home is always boycotting Coca Cola and MacDonalds by not liking their products much, but there are other sponsors who just made it onto my personal shit list.
Panasonic, Visa, Samsung, GE and you others, I’m not best pleased.

But, I will still be watching some of it. I don’t have anything against the athletes and there are sports I find interesting.
There are also sports I find duller than watching paint dry, some of them are in the olympics too.

I hope Pyeongchang (South Korea) does better. Fewer bad laws and less corruption would be good.

Still fat

A few years back I had weight loss surgery.
My stomach is way smaller than it used to be.

I’m also way smaller than I used to be.
But I’m still fat.Still far above the obsity line.

I’m mostly fine.
I’m glad I did it.

But there are days when that
oh, so elusive
BMI 30 makes me cry.

Fucks and taxidermied animals

I’m reading The Bloggess‘ blog.
She uses “fuck” way more than I do.

Maybe I’m raised better?
Or more inhibited?

Well.
My home had only 3 taxidermied animals around when I grew up.
My dad shot the elk.
Someone else ran over the fox. (We just had it in the freezer for a while, with another elk head that ended up one someone elses wall).
I have no idea how we got the darned (fucking) squirrel.

After reading the bloggesses’ book I suddenly realized.
The lack of “fucks” probably just means I’m way less traumatized.

But seriousely.
You should read “Let’s pretend this never happened” by Jenny Lawson.

Oh, and Jesus was totally a zombie!

The tail end

of a cat that is.

Mister has learned to jump up on the bathroom sink.
Miss has been able to do this since day one, but Mister is a slower learner.
We’re so proud of him.

It also means that we now usually have a fluffy tail waving in our faces whenever we do anything in the bathroom.

In some ways I feel like a parent whose kid has just learned to walk.
A kid who’s just learned to walk into trouble.

Blasted hormones

I’m ovulating.
I really detest ovulating.
It makes me overly emotional and likely to tear up over anything.

I’m a crybaby at the best of time.
This time of month I’m an almost non stop fountain.

Restaurant rut

Can it be considered being in a restaurant rut when you go to the same restaurant two times in a row?

I didn’t choose the restaurant.
W’s mother and sister did.
Both times.
They probably like it more than I do.

I’m not taking responsibility for this rut.
