A Prize In Every Box

This is a place for the random musings and life experiences of one Fliven, who looks for life's fun little surprises, even when its in a giant box of stale, tasteless foodstuffs.

Boredom Sets In

Man, I am bored today. We've caught up on work and our computer issues are fixed for the time being, after the stupid IT department getting their incompetent sausage fingers all up in our servers. Seriously, it was working FINE, and they had to go and screw with the permissions in such a way that no one can get to ANYthing they need. Or worse, they can see it but can't touch it.

Also, I just may have tracked down my oldest friend who is not also a family member. We were best buds for a long, long time. From like, kindergarten through middle school. Good times. I couldn't find him on FB or Twitter for a long time, but his wife is on FB, so I sent her a message. We'll see if it pans out. Its wiggedy weird seeing him with long hair, goatee, and two or three kids.

Badum badum badum…singing the bored song…tra la la…bored bored bored…

I need a new messenger bag. I have used two different ones for the last eight years. I used my Umbrella Corporation bag for four years, then my sweet girlfriend (fiancee?) got me a new one, which I used for two years, and still have, but the strap needs some repair work, plus I like having it for trips and nice occasions. So I'm back to the UC one, but it is falling apart. Still, six years worth of use for thirty bucks isn't bad.

Yesterday I edged around the sidewalks and driveway of our house. MAN, did they need it! That's the sort of thing that is really easy to miss. You think it looks fine, and then you edge, and discover an extra four to six inches of extra sidewalk. So that's done, anyway. I started powerwashing the walk, too. I'm sad that our porch either got red dirt in it when it was setting, or has some sort of rust stains or something, because it would not powerwash clean. The sidewalks did, though, and they look WAY better. I'm excited to do the rest. I would have done it yesterday, but after a couple hours of edging and powerwashing, your arms turn to jelly, let me tell you. I'll do more today. Hopefully, if I can keep things looking super nice, we'll have a good shot at Yard of the Month. Its stupid, as there are no tangible benefits to winning, but it'd be a nice ego boost to have accomplished it in less than two years, considering we've had to redo EVERYTHING involving the yard. Grass, shrubs, flower beds, the works. The back yard was even worse. Three foot tall weeds, unpainted fence, pine trees encroaching and killing what grass there was…yuck. And now it is an oasis of suburbanly serenity.

Ok, time to go find something else to waste time on.
