that is my favourite song to listen to right now, by the way. it's on the spongebob squarepants movie soundtrack, by those fantastic flaming lips. go listen!
and now for a very dry update on my recent activities:
our computer died a mysterious death-- suicide or murder? postmortem results not in yet. Luckily the Dell paramedics came and replaced the guts so now I get to recreate everything on our new hard drive. Fun! That will teach me to be a crappy back up person.
I have a new knitting obsession- flip flops. Yes, I'm knitting tubes and encasing cheap flip flop straps with yarn. I'll post a picture as soon as I get the photo programs back on the computer.
girls, i'm back on weight watchers. yes, it's true. the lovely Miss Scarlet and I are attending meetings, dutifully counting points, and filling ourselves with vegetables and water. this would be a piece of cake except that I QUIT SMOKING at the same time, which illustrates what a freaking idiot I am, and how much I enjoy suffering apparently. I realized that I have smoked for more of my life than I haven't, and not since I was a young teen have I finished a meal without a cigarette. Maybe quitting now will squeeze a few more years out of me, if I don't have a stress-related heart attack brought on by all the passive agressive biatches at work. Jesus Christ! It's impossible to please the terminally bitter, isn't it?
