Sundry

Giant-Ass Bed

Well, we done dood it. We finally got a new bed. King size, in fact. Simmons firm plush top, so it's steady with all those little coils, but the top gives.

It is HYOOOOGE. Like, I have to hop up to get my butt on it, and my legs dangle way off the ground. It's not a California King, because apparently 1-800-MATTRES leaves those on the West Coast, along with leaving off the last S for Savings. I think it will accommodate Mrs. Nator in all her lengthy glory, however. She can make up the couple inches of length by lying more diagonally.

Spending the money was scary, but with both of our backs giving out at times, it had to be done. Now we just have to try to keep the cats away from it, other than when we're in it. They're traumatized enough already by the movers schlepping it in. Anyone know how to rig up a boat horn to a pressure-sensitive mattres(s) pad?

Happy Pride

I guess. I dunno. I am so old and nest-y, I can't be bothered. Do I really want to sweat for hours watching a parade and then wander around trying to find a place to get a drink? No.

Wish Me Luck

on two things coming up. The first is today, when I have my exam to see if it's okay for me to take a beginning SCUBA class. I really want to take one in Hawaii. However, since I fat, lazy, on prescription drugs and have had spinal surgery, I have to get the okay from my doctor. I'll also be getting a blood test to make sure I got my measles-mumps-rubella vaccinations, because I have to verify that before I register for classes. I'm not worried about that, though. I just want my doctor to look at the SCUBA form while I'm there and tell me I'm healthy enough to do it. WoooOOOOnnns, please!

The second is cleaning for my mother-in-law's visit. She's coming on Wednesday, and thus far, I have been having a hard time getting my ass in gear. It's just pure procrastination stemming from feeling overwhelmed at how grubby this place is. There's no cure for my laziness long-term, I suspect, but a little boost of WoooOOOnns for one task couldn't hurt.

And that's it for now. I feel as though I've become rather boring, lately. Sorry if I have - there's just been a lot to do in preparation for school, mom-in-law's visit and Hawaii. My brain is rarely in the now, because I'm so excited about the close future. I guess if you're really bored, 1. fuck you, schmendrick & 2. you can go look at slideshows of my trip to the NY Botanical Garden or my visit with my sister, bro-in-law and the niece and nephew. I'm out!

ooh, i can finally see the white background, first of all. And yay! for a giant bed. If you have the room for it, its wonderful. If you don't, like me, then it's a nightmare of wasted space. Hooray for no way to walk around the bed! Urfh..

Good luck on doctor and MIL visit. Neither sound like much fun...

Great pics! Your niece looks like you, I think..... :D

And here ya go: WoooOOOooon woooOOOooon woooOOOooon woooOOOooon!! Now get that housework done, and when you're done, come on up to my place and help me with mine, too!

Enjoy the MIL visit! My mom just happened to mention in passing on the phone last night that she's intending to "have Dad put [her] on a plane and fly up for a week" in the near future, since Dad will be all busy with his new job and she'll be bored and in need of grandchildlike entertainment. Yeeeek!

I love my King Sized Bed, and will never go smaller unless I become single again. Good luck with your Scuba! You are going to have a blast on your trip, especially diving. I am very jealous.

oh. i hate kingsize beds as a couple thing. they're certainly wonderful to roll around in, though. just kind of lonesome at night. but if your woman's an amazonian goddess, gotta do whatcha gotta do. and back problems. yuck. my mattress actually sucks right now, but i'm fresh out of ideas as to how to fix it. hope this works for ya.
