I fixed the stuff on Billy’s page today. I had gotten duplicate photos in there somehow and it took forever to figure out the correct dates where I screwed up. I asked him if he could possibly wear red pants or shave his head on photo days to help make a more dramatic difference. You have to spot the changing foilage out his window or his moving furniture to note the changes. Bob saw what I was doing and said he had no idea I had such “conceptual” projects going on.
Other things I did today:
I got up early and went to Fred Meyer and bought a few more bags of bark dust. I have put tons of bark dust on my major backyard plant bed in the hopes of making my life easier come spring. For some reason the grass loves to grow in the plant beds but only weeds grow in the actual lawn area. Also some sort of “fairie” (Bob’s word) weeds have taken over most of the rest of the backyard. I don’t know. If I spent another half day per week on the yard I bet I could make it look a lot better … there just seem to always be more interesting things to do.
In addition to yardwork I cleaned about 20 lbs of cat shit out of the front yard. Since the two cute cats across the street moved in the shit has multiplied dramatically. I sprinkled the area with a generous layer of pepper flakes which actually works although you have to re-apply often. Too bad cute little kitties. Shit elsewhere!
I also did a D- (D minus) job of cleaning out the shop. I broke down some boxes for recycling and re-stacked various boxes of crap so that we have lots of space for more junk. (Bring it on, Priscilla!) And I swept.
Then I watched the very last special feature on my last Angel disk (the best show ever!) which was the director’s commentary on the season 4 finale. It was completely awesome. Good thing I only have one more season to re-watch and then I can get on with my life b/c my obsession with this show is unhealthy. I think season 5 will be out in February. You can bet I’ll let you know when that happens.
This afternoon I went to the Clark College library and finished some research I’m working on and read a bunch of stuff. Now I’m roasting an “Amber Cup” squash and reheating leftover pizza for dinner. Yum.
