OH, the Humidity!

Today’s been a pretty busy day.  Uhh… honestly don’t remember how it really started, but I do remember Lisa and I setting up our “new” bed frame in our bed room.  We got the box frames (two twins, doubling for the california king mattress on top) and mattress on there, but then we decided to head over to my folk’s place to pick up a much more comfortable pillowtop mattress they said we could have.  Oh, and waffles.  My mom makes great waffles.

We weren’t just taking the mattress, though.  We were swapping ours with theirs.  The logical thing would be to load up ours into the truck and take it over right away, but I was much too hungry and weak to mess with it then, so we skipped that step and just headed over for breakfast.  We spent some time over there and, omitting all the other boring details, we came back home.

We got home, unloaded the new mattress and flopped it onto our bed.  With the new frame and additionally the thicker pillowtop mattress, I almost feel I need a step ladder just to get up onto the bed.  I don’t know how much more comfortable it’ll be, but it’s certainly a longer fall if I roll off.  Awesome.

Long story cut shorter, we took the other mattress back over, deposited a check, got some food, came home and watched people die on TV, and now here I am typing a blog.

Oh, and the humidity and heat didn’t make any of this easier.  Any of it.  Nope.

Here’s an amusing treat.  We took Ramsey street on the way home, and for those of you familiar with the area, you’ll know of the liquor store on the 22nd/Ramsey intersection, northeast corner.  Well as we approached the intersection, I saw a cop car pull through traffic right up to that corner.  I then noticed two cop cars already there, one with a cop standing by his door, gun drawn.  As I got closer, another cop got out of his car with what appeared to be a fully automatic rifle of some kind.  Not being a gun expert, and not getting a good look, I couldn’t tell you exactly what kind of gun it was.  Just as the light turned green I noticed a fourth car behind me so I drove off without delay so as to let him through.  I’m not sure what was going on, but they had their sights on a small car parked in front of the liquor store with at least two people in it, who had their hands sticking out of the windows, which were down just enough to let their hands out to show they were not armed.  I really wish I knew what was going on… but we had to keep driving and going back to look just didn’t seem like the thing to do.  If you know anything about this little fiasco, please do share.

Well, I’m out.

Phone Woes III

I sorta planned to plug my phone in to charge while I slept, but I decided to wait.  I let it charge to about 80% and tried to give the transfer another go.

Fortunately, the “SD Card is damaged” warning was gone, and I was actually able to access the SD card from my PC normally without booting to recovery mode.  This means that I can let the transfer take place and the phone will maintain a steady charge.  We’re on the right path.

I think I’ll go to bed now, though.  I’m getting sleepy.

 

On a quick side note, I’m going to start tracking my weight each day.  I’ve got an app on my phone that makes it easy to keep track.  I’m not gonna say how much I weigh now, but I will say that when I weighed myself several weeks ago, I was the heaviest I’ve ever been, and now I am 8 pounds less than that.  HOWEVER, since I just started keeping track today (well, yesterday technically), I’m not gonna count those 8 pounds.


Bedtime

We actually didn’t do that web page training thing today at work.  I guess it’s going to be next week instead.

I think I made it until about 7pm this evening when I saw “your” used improperly again.  I’m telling you, I see it every day.  It’s not a typo, either.  These people really don’t know how to use “you’re”.  I also saw it a few times after that, as well.  It’s so annoying.

By the way, if you ever see me use a word incorrectly or spell something incorrectly, please tell me.  I, unlike the other ignorant idiots in the world, would actually like to know the proper way.  Unless it’s just a typo… I do make typos all the time… especially when I’m at work and I can only get to my blog and facebook through a remote window which has a slow response time and makes it difficult to type and even more difficult to correct mistakes.

Well, as the subject here implies, it is bedtime.  Lisa and I played Soul Calibur IV for a little while.  That game really is a lot of fun.  Shura FTW!

I guess I don’t really have anything else to say…. OH oh… I’ve been coughing a lot lately.  It’s strange how I was super sick for over a week, heavily congested, and barely coughing.  Now that I am feeling better, and hardly congested at all, I can barely stop coughing.  It really doesn’t make much sense to me.

I watched a few more of those FAIL toy reviews.  Some of them are really pretty funny.  I can’t believe some of the toys that were put on the market.  Some of them are so blatantly inappropriate, it’s surprising the companies don’t get sued… that I know of, anyway.

Well, time to pee and go to bed… in that order.
