A Little Toasty 3

In an effort to finally rid myself of this cold, I’m trying out the theory that the constant entering and exiting of air conditioning is what’s made it so bad. Consequently, I’ve left my air conditioner on fan mode. This isn’t anything terribly revolutionary, but it’s been a bit warmer than usual here and it’s ...

Meet The New Blog, (Sort Of) The Same As The Old Blog

This whole WordPress bit is largely up and running now, so I’m going to start posting over here. A few minor housekeeping bits: Here are links to the Main RSS Feed and the Comments RSS Feed. You’ll see a few comments from my brief (failed) attempt at using Blogger comments, but I’m still trying to ...

Caption Contest 1

Chaplin likes to come sit on my lap while I’m trying to read things on the computer. Fortunately, my computer has a built-in camera so I can capture him making goofy faces like this one: If only I could figure out how to make the flash less bright so it wouldn’t completely blow out his ...

When Fleas, Six-Day Weeks and 5:30 PM Call Times Collide

It’s been hellaciously hot in L.A. this week, so the fleas that I thought I’d gotten rid of are back with a MASSIVE vengeance. The only real solution is to flea-bomb the house to kill ’em all. The problem is, flea-bombing is a stupidly elaborate and time-consuming process, since it has a tendency to cover ...

The Best Six Bucks I’ve Spent in Some Time

Aw

My next door neighbor just took this picture after hearing Chap whining and then seeing him stick his paws out under the door: Poor bored kitten. He looks so hilariously pathetic in that picture.

Ruh Roh

Two things causing concern. First, I got on the scale, and was happy to see I’d lost another pound. The bad news was, I realized I hadn’t weighed Chaplin in a while, so I picked him up to do the whole “weigh self holding cat, weigh self, subtract” method to see how much he weighed. ...

Not Dead

Just not doing anything terribly interesting, and have had a serious drop in motivation this week. After working for a couple weeks, to go back to doing nothing is awfully frustrating. I will note a few random things I’ve noticed in the last few days: – Chaplin falling asleep on my chest means I will, ...

Free Stuff! 2

The company I used to work for (not the show itself, but the much smaller company that technically employed me) has hired me for the week to clean out their old offices, which were basically unused by more than one person for over two years. They’re selling much of the old furniture to the incoming ...
