Chapstick addict


My grandfather has been in and out of the hospital more times in the last couple of weeks than a 5 year old playing with the revolving door. (And by 5 year old I mean me. But it's one of those automatic revolving doors and you can't get it going very fast so it's not really worth playing in.) my morbidly humorous take on the whole thingCollapse )

I finally broke down and bought a laptop! I hope I'll be happy with it and I hope it lasts me more than three years, preferably five or more. It shipped out yesterday so it won't be here for a few more days *grumble* holiday *grumble*. In the mean time I feel like this xkcd comic. xkcd works wonderfully for visual metaphors, well I guess in this case it is a visual simile since I used "like" in the description.

Tomorrow I'm going up to the St. Louis City Museum with Bob and Loren! Whoo! I'll be back Saturday in time to go to work. Whoo! Wait... maybe not whoo. Oh well.
Saturday night I'm probably going to stop by Starbase Indy. If I have the time I'm going to dress up as an Andorian. I did a test run for the makeup earlier tonight. I did not realize just how long and how much makeup it would take to get a smooth even color. Also, hands are a pain in the butt to paint, especially painting your dominate hand with your non dominate hand. I'm going to need to buy more blue when this is all over.
