One down...

So the first four movies I received were:

42nd Street
Intolerable Cruelty
Big Fish
Animal Crackers

Had 42nd Street watched and sent back by 6 last night *g*. Wonder what they'll send next.

I had a moment of irked-ness when I first tried to watch the movie, the DVD player wouldn't accept the disc, thought it was a dud. Tried several that had played successfully before, and they weren't working either. So, down 1 DVD player (or it was resting - not sure yet). Good thing we have the PS2 *g*

Whining, ranting, bitchiness

Why is it that when my friends have a problem the can call or write and I'm there to listen and offer advice, but if I ever try to bring
up that things aren't great, they're suddenly busy?

When they call to chat and I say I'm swamped with studying, I don't need to hear them ramble on about how tough it was for them to
study when they were working full time and how that ended their relationship. I need them to say, 'oops, sorry about the bad timing, will
catch you later.'

When they ask me why you haven't seen me on IM lately and I say I'm feeling depressed and down, but want to talk, it's pretty fucking
obvious their panicked scramble to find something that has happened to them to complain about, completely ignoring my last txt.

When they ask me how I'm doing, the least they can do is pretend to care. Ask some questions, offer some advice. Don't just change the topic.

Yep, fun to hang around with, great that they come to me with their problems, but damn I really have to find some peeps that just aren't so self absorbed.

My sister stole my brain

In January I did a mini reno of our kitchen. Nothing big, took down awful wallpaper, patched the horrible drywall disaster (the previous owner patched the walls with masking tape under the wallpaper! and rather than running a cable in the wall, he channelled out the drywall, ran the wire, then, yep, covered it with packing tape!!!) removed wainscotting, installed new lights and baseboards.

At that time I took down the wall clock and decided not to put it back, it didn't really 'go' anymore. Every time I am in the kitchen, I still look at the blank wall to figure out what time it is!

part of my todo list:
redo floor
new cupboards
scrape stipple off ceiling
new counters
new appliances
new pantry
new sink and fixtures

But none of that will be happening today!
