If you’re not feeling emotions then you’re not living. If that statement is true then I’ve been close to living a full spectrum of emotions over the last few days.
Happiness Is An Almost Clutter-Free House
While I have yet to finish “It’s All Too Much” I have read enough to inspire me to continue my house de-cluttering project. I am starting to see a marked difference and with it I am starting to feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders (now if I can also get around to removing it from my waist I’d be really happy).
Yesterday the trash collectors / recyclers removed
– a trash can filled with boxes for electronics, some of which I no longer own
– a large bag filled with plastic garbage bags (these were stored in a kitchen cabinet, why I had so many I could not figure out)
– a large shopping bag filled with magazines I have not opened in years
Tomorrow I will be filling the car with things that will become the property of Goodwill.
Man it feels great to wake up to a clean house. Just think how happy I will be when it’s air-conditioned again. 🙂
Nothing Makes My Blood Boil Quicker
On my commute home yesterday I rode behind some fucktards who were certain that the Earth was their personal trash can. On no few than three occasions I saw pieces of paper get thrown out the window by the car’s passenger. How hard is it to keep the trash in the car until you reach your destination? How hard is it to then take that trash and put it into a trash can?
I’ve probably mentioned it before, but littering infuriates me! Littering is lazy. Littering is pointless. Littering is disrespectful.
ITP Flickr Pic
I managed to confuse myself yesterday (seriously, it’s not that difficult). When typing a description for this picture I wanted to use the word which describes a person who sews (not “seamstress”, a different word)
I typed the word “sewer” and immediately thought “Wait a minute, that’s the word for the pipes which transport sewage. This can’t be correct.” so I changed the word.
As it turns out, I was correct after all.
Mini RealiTV Wrap Up
Joe Don Is Long Gone
My guilty partial-pleasure recently has been watching Pirate Master. The show is filled with flaws (imho), but I have found it to be intriguing. This week the captain and his two officers managed to continue to pluck off the men on the ship who pose threats to their power by getting rid of Joe Don. I will be interested to see what happens when the crew gets pared down to the point where they cannot have teams.
Who Packed Their Knives?
I watched Top Chef last night and I cannot remember who was booted. I do remember that Gail Simmons was once again absent and that doesn’t make me happy at all. I still think that this is the most “real” of the RealiTV shows I watch because the contestants are judged on their skills and there is little politicking.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – all mixed up
Current Music – none, I am watching the Tour de France (Interesting TdF fact: According to what I heard, the first American to ride in the TdF was Jonathan Boyer in 1982. Huh, I thought the first American would have ridden a long time before that.)
Website Of The Day – Speaking of trash, do you ever wonder about all of the plastic water bottles we have made since the inception of “bottled water”? Refill Not Landfill is trying to raise awareness of this problem.
Exercise (b)Log – none
