A day in the life: 11-14/15

November 15, 2009

FD-6panelAdventures in randomland this weekend were, well, random. Got a lot of house stuff done, cut a hole in the wall and installed a door with a lot of Adam power. Was a pretty great project, except when we made the door hole about 1/2 inch too small, so we had to redo a bunch of it, which was certainly special. Remember out there to measure twice and build a wall once. While working on the door we noticed the furnace was leaking water, which isn’t really something you want your furnace to do, water being the opposite of fire and all. So we poked around, cleaned out the water trap and thought it was good to go. But when I woke up this morning to a furnace blowing cold air and the house in the 50’s, obviously something was still wrong. Got it all fixed up tonigth though, and I’d rather not mentioned what happened, I’ll only say it didn’t cost anything to get it working properly again…

Went to the dog park twice, which was great, Oliver did wonderfully with the other dogs, except for behaving like an old grouchy grandpa. I seems to not be able to keep up with the labs and other mid sized dogs there, they can turn too fast for him, and he’s not really sure how to act around puppies either. When 2 black lab puppies were playing, he tried to play with them which didn’t work at all and ended in him just barking at the little ones, ‘hey settle down kids, before someone gets hurt’. Then today he almost crushed an even smaller puppy by almost stepping on it.

Went super shopping, which is aweful this time of year. We’re not even close to doing holiday shopping yet, but everybody else seems to be. The stores are playing Christmas music already, 2 weeks prior to Thanksgiving, insane. Every store is so crowded it’s a pain in the ass to walk around and look at stuff, and even worse to checkout. But the good news is, it’s only going to get worse for the next 45 days or so before calming down. I think I may just resort to internet shopping this year.

I do have to say though that EiD’s holiday part was pretty cool. It’s early in the season, but correlates with Randy’s birthday, so that’s somehow ok in my mind. The store was amazing as always, save for a few rooms upstairs which Nicole’s has taken over. I’m pretty sure I don’t like them. Snobby ladies paying way too much for clothing. I heard their owner describing quite enthusiasticly how sexy and hot a pair of shoes were to some prospective customers. I obviously don’t get it. I think what bugs me most about Nicole’s being there is the different clientile they bring in. There’s just something about the women there I saw shopping the clothes verses the interior decor stuff that just rubbed me the wrong way. Something about them just seemed to not really mesh with me, all this without even talking to any of them, go prejustice.

Ahh well, other than those adventures, we went out to dinner at the Great Dane, and hung out with Kel’s siblings. Got a game of Warhammer in too, I’ll have a battle report coming soon over at Snake Eyes Box Cars.
