Sunday isn't Monday...

Thankfully it's the long weekend and even Monday isn't Monday. This does mean, however, that Tuesday becomes Monday and remains Tuesday.

I haven't made nearly as much progress on cleaning my place this weekend as I was intending to. Is it laziness? The heat? Am I just tired? Maybe a little of all of those things. I have tomorrow too, right?

I want to skip cleaning and just write. What do I want to write? I don't know yet. I'm thinking of playing around with The Blood Waitress Club. It's basically first drafted. I even have a cover already for it, though only an eBook and not a paperback one. I think I could get the rest done easily though. The back of the cover could just be black with high contrast text... I don't know about the spine, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.

Perhaps a short story would be best first. Like a palette cleanser.

I'm going to force myself to do some dishes first though.

I have a doctor's appointment I better not forget about tomorrow. Yes, on a holiday. Hopefully it's short.

I've added a second adult album to my vinyl collection: Radiohead - Pablo Honey. I find listening to vinyl is relaxing in a different way than digital music, but that may be due to often having headphones in for digital music. I got two free albums recently for playing the Family Guy game and unlocking Avril Lavigne and Alice Cooper.

Oh!!! I got a betta fish. I've named him Winchester the Amazing! We aren't quite used to each other yet. Sometimes he sees me as a threat and starts flaring at me.

He's hard to photograph, but is beautiful. He's a mix of blue, purple, and red. I'm trying to get him hooked on Supernatural, but so far no dice.

I hope it doesn't upset him that I'm having crab legs for dinner...

Ciao,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included.  Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt.  I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her. She was a force off the track too. As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers , she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.   Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her.  I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.  R.I.P. #10. Rae-Rae
