Kind of a catch-all post to bring you loyal readers up to speed on what’s happening at good ol’ Casa del Surfergeeks.
First Up: Kinda pissed. DHL tried to delivery my autographed copy of Windows 7 Ultimate today and we were out getting milk. Damn kids and their need for milk. Okay, we were buying HE laundry detergent too.
Second: Speaking of HE laundry detergent (how’s that for a smooth segue?), our new LG Washer & Dryer get delivered tomorrow! Yay! Can’t wait to play do laundry with them. Had to finish unhooking the old washing machine today. THAT was a bitch! The water hoses were rusted/corroded onto the taps. Vice grips got the one off but the other held fast. Ended up breaking out the Dremel with a cutting disc attached and cut the fucker off.
Third: Speaking of cutting things off. Get well soon Mike!
Fourth: Mike H can’t make poker next weekend.
Fifth: I’m out of segues.
Sixth: Alex is doing okay in school. Not great unfortunately. I tried to convince the school that it was simply his absolute genius that was the issue but they weren’t having any of it. Just kidding. The teacher actually is very impressed by his reading skill. Apparently there is some type of level that JK/SK aims for and it’s level 4. He’s already at level 2 a few weeks in. Unfortunately, he’s also being bad at school. He’s switched from Mrs. Woods’ class to Mr. C’s class and I think it’s going to be really good for him. He’s already showing an improvement in doing what he’s told at school.
Seventh: We’ve all got some type of cold/flu in the past couple weeks. The worst of it is over and nobody died. Nikki still can’t talk very well and has managed to miss pretty much a full week of work. Thank god for sick pay.
Eighth: (the more I stare at ‘eighth’ the more I think it’s spelled wrong) I’ve registered for school! Yep; hopefully come January I’ll be @ Fanshawe taking Architectural Technology.
Ninth: Alex just reminded me that one of the fish died at some point last night. Poseidon, like the god he was named after, is no more. Alex & Nikki gave him (her?) the ol’ flush-a-roo before school. Gotta say, I’m pretty impressed that she managed to keep them all alive this long.
Okay, I’m about out of things to say that I can think of off the top of my head. Maybe if I posted more I wouldn’t need to do this huge catch-up posts. Until next time! Later!
