Wake Up. Work. Sleep.

I don’t have much to blog about because today’s title is all I did yesterday and about all I conceive of doing for the remainder of the week. I’ve even been forced to once again give up on the idea of going to the Alliance Theatre to see their performance of “Smart Cookie” tonight. Poop.

Look Ma! New Kindle!
Amazon announced a new Kindle. Even though I’ve proven that I don’t read often enough to warrant one, I still want one.

I think for the time being I’ll hold off on plunking down $359 for a new Kindle and treat myself by lining Amazon’s pockets by subscribing to a year’s worth of Audible instead. I think that I should be able to listen to a book a month. 😉

I’ve not had time to look at Sunday’s photos, so here’s another from Saturday.
Communication Breakdown
This is an aging satellite dish found at Avondale High School. Or it’s yard art, I can’t decide which.

Taking Care Of (Only) Business
I have so much to do. The following has been put on the back burner as I attempt to finish a work project.

  • get plumbing in house fixed
  • schedule car maintenance
  • schedule appointment with tax preparer
  • get new eyeglasses adjusted
  • schedule appointment with dermatologist
  • schedule appointment with doctor for knee
  • work on bedroom
  • upgrade networking in my house
  • learning Ruby on Rails
  • learning iPhone development
  • getting a haircut
  • order a shitload of stuff for me (okay, this isn’t necessary but it’s fun)

Well, at least with all of these tasks on my plate I shouldn’t care about the fact that this Saturday is Valentine’s Day and I am dateless yet again.

Okay, I’m off to the salt mines…

    Would you believe I said to myself- that dish looks familiar? Little did I know.


  2. Haha, that’s funny Steve.

    Even when I had a boyfriend, I was ‘dateless’ on VDay, I think that is even worse. I’m sure this year will be no different than years past. I’ve only had two dates with the current, future ex-boyfriend so I’m sure we wont do anything ‘romantic’ on Saturday.

    I got the email about the new Kindle the other day, since I’ve got at least 4 books at the house, waiting to be read, I don’t think it will be on my shoping list anytime soon.

    I grew up with one of those huge dishes in the yard, I wonder if it is still there. The rural landscape seems to be littered with them, I’m not sure what you can do with them.

    I’ll be dateless on Saturday as well……. but I think of Valentine’s Day as just a way for Hallmark to make some extra money, and for the florists to rip people off, so it doesn’t really matter to me if Allan is working or not.

  5. sal says:

    Marty is actually going to try and make it back in town this week-end.

    Martha: what do you mean future ex-boyfriend?

  6. Martha says:

    Sal, sort of poking fun of my pathetic attempts at dating/relationships… the last one barely made it to two months… the good news is there is always another one just around the corner.

    That’s not a satellite dish. That’s the state flower of Alabama! I should know. Better not let time get away from you as far as “Smart Cookie” goes. They close on the 22nd!
