When the owner and representative came and did that walk-through of the apartment a few weeks ago, one thing he mentioned quite by random was that he thought the kitchen sink was old, and wanted to replace it. No complaints from me, as the thing really was very old. So, an appointment was made for someone to come by "between noon and 3" to install my new kitchen sink, yesterday. First off, the guy shows up at 10:30, but OK, I can deal with that. He makes a few measurements, etc., writes some notes, and buggers off. Shows back up at noon with the new sink, etc., and goes to work. Four and a half damn hours later, my sink is swapped out. Apparently, things did not go smoothly, but it's there now, and working fine and not a relic of the 60's.

Meanwhile, I spent the entire day with a raging headache of epic proportions that nothing seemed to cure. Well, OK, truth, nothing that I did, which foolishly did not include a lot. I fear I may have a bit more of a self-destructive streak in me than I ever seriously considered. Anyway, it finally went away about 10:30pm...how nice of it to let up just a little before bed, huh? Gave me just enough time to watch Smokin' Aces (which was, surprisingly, a fun flick, though it reminded me a little too much of a Guy Ritchie flick). Speaking of flicks, a late Xmas present from Dianna finally showed up, and I can now add Fritz the Cat to my Ralph Bakshi collection.

In leisure activity news, a CoH character which I made to replace an previous one is finally just where he needs to be to replace his predecessor. Also, my turn has come up on the Sketchbook Conspiracy, and, as usual, I have NO CLUE what to do....wait, I take that back, I may have just found my out! Oh, sweet obnoxious creativity, I love you when you aren't being a vicious whore.

Re: I may have just found my out!

The perils of planning to far ahead!

Which CoH character are you swapping? I'm curious!

My toon in the Galaxy City Regulars, "Tao & Zen." He was an Emp/Rad Defender, but I wasn't having much fun playing him. Besides, with the way the team roster reads, he wasn't as useful as I'd thought he would be when I made him. So, with the break for the holidays, I deleted him and re-rolled, making him a Mind/Rad Controller. I don't get to play 'trollers much, because I don't solo them well, and since I play during times most of my runnin' dogs are not on, I don't have fun with them. The Regs, though, that's a built-in team, so I went for it, and he's a helluva lot more fun to play. Anyway, ran him hard and had a lot of leveling help from kwsapphire, and he's now back at the level of the team, 22.

I used to not take anything for headaches, I'd just wait them out. Since so many of my impending headaches have turned out to be full blown migraines, I treat every potential headache as if it were a migraine now. As soon as I feel it coming on, I grab the tylenol and caffine. Sorry you had a rough day yesterday, but Grats on T&Z ;)

I will have to catch up on the Friday pix I missed on my trip, but when I took this one of the turtle facepalming itself I thought I'd have to send it to you:

Well, now, I usually delete the old Friday Pix when I upload the new ones, so check tonight! Meanwhile, I'll put this in the queue for this weeks' load. ;)

Damn you
Now I am twice and envious. I have looked for Fritz and hoped it would be re-released on DVD for a long time. I only saw it once, at the theaters back when I was too young to actually see an X-rated Cartoon! But the dieing crow scene has stuck in my head, all these many years and sure would like to see it all again. Where did you find it?

Re: Damn you
You can get it on DVD through Amazon.
