Grand Plan (Temporarily) Aborted

I was concocting a scheme for the ITP Estate when it dawned on me that it was going to create more problems than it would solve and that it would also cost me an additional $1000 to implement. Since this scheme had nothing to do with the core functionality (developer speak?) of the ITP Estate, so I’ve aborted Phase 2. Now I need to determine how to implement Phase 1 in the best way. I won’t go into details but Phase 1 involves in-home entertainment.

No Regretsy Here
Yesterday I started listening to a new-to-me podcast, Rendered. On one of the episodes they interviewed a woman who makes mobiles. In the interview she referenced her Ministry of Funny Walks mobile that she sells via Etsy, and I just had to have it.

So I ordered one.
And there was much internal rejoicing!

When it arrives I will make it part of the revised Phase 1.5 of my current project.

Some times being a loser single bachelor is completely fucking awesome.

Another Tin Drum Tuesday
I made it down to Colony Square last night with enough time to eat Tin Drum for dinner. Since I’ve signed up for the next session starting in mid April, when the weather will be much nicer than it has been in recent months, I want to figure out a way to get some pre-German class exercise an eat something that I’ve packed instead of buying food out.

Last night’s class was good, though I felt incredibly unprepared at its start. As the night progressed I started feeling a little better about my understanding of the material we were discussing. I remain optimistic that I will someday have an epiphany.

    the first paragraph really makes no sense to me.
    the second one almost as confusing.

    We have decided to cook a turkey while my siblings & familes are here, Allan went hunting, and they aren’t as easy to find as you’d think. We did find some at Publix, now to get it thawed by the weekend. the other dinner will be a pulled pork butt. Figured we’d be out & about for lunch time most likely, so we should cook & eat at home. Plus, with 3 teenage girls, I’m sure they will be “bored” with us the majority of the time.

    You of course realize that Colony Square is in a great walking neighborhood. All of Sherwood Forest, Piedmont Park, the Beltline.

    There was much trouble in horseland yesterday. When I got home, Debbie was trying to get Luke loaded. He was being recalcitrant, and from what I learned, he wasn’t the only one- the space right behind the trailer looked like the 40 yard line in the 4th quarter of a high school football game. With my help, he loaded and was a good boy for his potential owner!!

    Making a list of things that have to move yet and the logistics involved. We have some volunteers during the week, which will help greatly, but sadly, we really can’t do much before we close on the new place, except be loaded and ready to roll.


  3. I am being obtuse for a reason. 😉 I spent money buying something for the house, this was Phase 1. In doing so I concocted a grand scheme, Phase 2, that would require a lot of change within the house and the outlay of an additional $1000 in furniture purchases. The second paragraph describes the awesome-to-me mobile I have purchased and its destination in the ITP Estate now that I have scrapped the Phase 2 concept that I was considering spending $1000 to complete. A saner mindset hit me last night when I realized that money would be better spent on fixing some issues with the ITP Estate rather than buying unneeded furniture.

    Clear as mud now? 🙂 I don’t write as clearly as I once did now that I’ve given up drinking coffee/caffeine on a daily basis.

    I had the same turkey problem pre-Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I started too late in order to properly thaw a bird, so I went the chicken route instead.

    Agreed Steve. I just need to make sure that I am not overly-sweaty for my Deutschkurs. While I don’t expect to meet a female in my class I have seen a few attractive young ladies taking French courses at the neighboring school. I may be old, but I’m neither dead nor blind.

  4. Steve says:

    Francois? Oui, s’il vous plait!

    I forgot to mention, I did like the mobile. I didn’t notice how big it was…

  5. Steve says:

    And Barb, you said Allan went hunting for a turkey, and my first thought was it isn’t turkey season,he’ll get in trouble. I love living in the country!

  6. Actually Steve I have no idea how big the mobile is, it was an impulse buy. If it’s too small to hang from a ceiling I’ll find a way to put it on my desk.

    And I thought the same thing about Allan’s quest even though I’m a confessed “city boy”. 🙂

  7. Barb says:

    Well – I guess shopping would have been the better word, but since he didn’t find any on his own, hunting could be correct after all. He just needed to ask someone………. like I did.

    Its really slow here at work this week, I need to find something to do to look busy. I wish I could do my taxes here, but I don’t want all that info here.

  8. Debbie says:

    Size = as large as a basketball when hung. I like it.

    Our whole farm is a mud pit. Time to move!

  9. Steve says:

    Your horses did it!

  10. Stacy says:

    Paulie, you also realize that Colony Square is my neighborhood more or less, right? I’d be happy to meet you for dinner sometime if the time works out!

    Where is the mobile going? 🙂

  11. Steve says:

    Or could it be a mobile mobile?

  12. Well, the mobile was going to go in the den, where Phase 2 was supposed to play out. However, it is now going to go somewhere in the living room. Related: Funny, I just noticed that my typing of the site “Etsy” was autocorrected to “Easy” when I typed it in this morning.

    I do know that I am in your neighborhood, but I usually eat really early since class starts at 6:00pm. Class lets out at 8:45pm, so that might be a little on the late side.

  13. Stacy says:

    Gotcha! Well, if I ever play hooky from work on a Tuesday, I’ll let you know. 🙂
