El Destructo

Sean-1, offensive useless shelf in the kitchen-0 Yet another weekend of projects completed. The little shelving piece next to the pantry (of which I have no pictures, sorry) has been removed from the kitchen. It has since been replaces with a nice set of freestanding chrome shelves, now Kat has room to unpack the rest of the kitchen items. We also got the bathroom painted, and I must say it looks excellent (make note to buy digital cam soon). I think those where the two biggest things done, after the Stir concert on friday (which was excellent by the way), I was feeling a bit more lethargic in my housing duties.

In other news I should be getting back the civic today. Geof, if you kill your car again I think you need to take it to a place that will not keep it for 30+ days…… We will see what the work looks like on mine, and thne I will give out his name and a reccomendation. Hope everyone else had a good weekend.

Dragon*Con in t-minus (what is t-minus anyway, one of you rocket scientists out there can tell me) 4 days now….

monday morning

It’s 7:18am my time. I’ve been here for about 20 minutes or so now. I left the house before Sean even woke up this morning. I was prepared to seriously dislike having to be up this early in the morning so that I could get my work hours completed this term on top of school. Instead, this morning when I woke up (actually woke up, which is sometime after I took my shower) I was filled with a kind of peacefulness. Our house was quiet except for the two rambunctious cats running around. Sean was still asleep and I only turned the TV on long enough to watch Headline News while eating my cereal.

When I pulled out of the garage this morning, I wasn’t met with traffic. Instead, I was met with a few other early risers like myself, so my drive to work was cut down by a few more minutes (it’s only like a 5 minute commute for me now). I got to work and the hall lights were still off. You could see the motion detectors glowing in the ceiling lights above me. I walked into my office and turned on the soothing halogen lights around my office space and sat down at my computer. It’s quiet in here. Someone else has gotten to the office now because the lights are on in the hall now. I don’t care. It’s still quiet. I can go into the closed area for a while this morning and listen to music while moving more data over to the raid in there. My week has begun with no stress, no worries, just a quiet peacefulness. I could actually get used to this.

making it official

It’s almost official. I talked to my advisor today and after looking through my transcript, provided I pass all of my classes this fall and spring, I will be able to graduate Spring 2003. I don’t have to take the FE/EIT’s, although she did say that it was worth it if there was ever a possibility of me needing it. I think I will.

Tomorrow, I’m going to run by the UC and grab my graduation form and fill it out.

Next on the list will be to have my interview with Dr. Corsetti and then it’ll just be a matter of waiting until spring when I do the rest of the graduation form-filling-out and then actually walking across the stage. Wow, it really is going to happen.

More bass for your head

I was waiting for Kat and my mom to get out of a fabric store over in Atlanta this past weekend, so i wandered over to Best Buy. Listed on their new releases was a Crystal Method album I had never heard of, Community Service. WTF? A CM album that I missed, how did that happen? Ahhhhh, dig a little deeper and I find out that it is their first remix album. You guys can find it over at amazon http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B000069JJE/qid=1029950050/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-3519026-4705644?s=music

Thought you guys could use some new tunes. I have not picked up the album yet, but I certainly will be soon.

more home improvements

“You can call me Mr. Bob Vila.”

“So, what does that make me, Martha Stewart?”

Sean and I worked on the house some more last night. Me stripping the rest of the wallpaper off the bathroom walls and Sean installing the last ceiling fan in the house. We now have ceiling fans in all of the major rooms in the house. The last one to go in was the master bedroom last night. One objective down, only a thousand more on the to-do list for the home. Tonight, my objective is to wash the walls in the bathroom to get the rest of the wallpaper paste off so that we can primer the walls again (they really need new primer) and then paint them. That will take care of putting the guest bathroom in sorts for our guests, especially since Sean’s parents and his sister are supposed to be coming for a visit September 7. More wedding site hunting. In the meantime, that only leaves us this weekend to do painting seeing as we’ll be gone most of next week for D*con. Must… keep… moving…

Oh, and classes start today.
