hmpgh. Well then, pardon my imagination for preferring the technological sense of the word. I'd still prefer to have a AFO scanner around as maybe then laundry wouldn't be such a bore.

Laundry is supposed to be boring. Otherwise you'd have to fight ninjas or negotiate with terrorists to get stuff from the washer to the dryer.

About laundry stories. I washed a load of white wash, then put it in the dryer.( All the clothes were white when I put them in the dryer.) Went to get some clothes out of the dryer and saw that my clothes and dryer were now green. All do to a green crayon  my 4 year old son put in his pocket.
After cleaning my dryer and spraying all my clothes with wd40 and then washing my clothes about 10 times in the washer the clothes are a little bit better now.

I would have left them green, as a testament to my awesomeness.

Sorry about the repeating posts about my laundry going green. My wife made the second post without reading the previous one.

Oh. I thought you were being humorous.  :)

That makes more sense, though.

I suppose I will cry about this to others, instead of just creating grief in my mind.

Tonight at work, I was working as usual, and sometime after my first break my legs began to feel a bit awkward. Wasn't anything serious at first, but then it gradually got worse as I continued on my way. Now, I stayed until I couldn't bear this anymore, as my legs were feeling fetid, sore, and rather acute pains around the shins more and more.

I managed to pedal myself home and am now ready to go to bed. I hope when I wake this feeling goes away. Or else I'm dead.

Gum stuck on the bottom of my backpack. Yuck! I scrubbed and used ice to get more off but the residue is still there. :P

My boss and I were driving back from meeting with a prospective client and got into a car accident. Fortunately, we were in my bosses car (because my car wouldn't have survived) and the guy who rear-ended us was nice about it (maybe because we told him we're lawyers).  

The frustrating part was that it took the police over an hour to get to the accident site, so we had to wait around in the middle of busy road until the police could come and do an inspection and accident report (which is mandatory in the state of Colorado).

John Lasseter being an idiot makes me grumpy. He gave Miyazaki credit for Diana Wynne Jones's ideas in Howl's Moving Castle. You can read the full story in my livejournal, if you're so inclined.

Grr. >:(

I hate it when people expect me to pay for their mistakes.

This week, we got a quote for carpet installation and it was for 178 square feet more than we measured. After much arguing, they are agreeing to remeasure, but initially they just wanted us to pay.

Now, our homeowners insurance agency says that we owe $200 more per year than we were quoted. The insurance agent told us that he made a mistake in our quote but never told us (or thought he might have mentioned it). He is still expecting us to pay the extra $200 (which won't happen).

It just one of those weeks when I feel like everyone is trying to rip me off.

Gah! My two-year-old demon spawn was full of mischief yesterday. He broke the front picture window in the living room when he threw a toy sword at it and drew in pen all over the flatscreen computer monitor.

Edit: I just discovered some paper he had jammed into the DVD player.

I'm  SOOOO glad having children is not required. I love children sometimes, and then, you're babysitting and they let the tub run over, which dissolves the sealant around the tub, and causes large amounts of water to drip down on you while you are making their dinner[grill cheese, no crust, perfectly browned or she won't eat it]
 GRRRR!    Anyway, that's why I'm grumpy.

  P.S. At least the girl got a good whipping!

Yesterday my 20 month old son poured a 2lb container of corn meal on is head (which is messier than sand), then he dumped almost an entire box of Kix cereal on the kitchen floor. And when He went into the basement he dumped out all the little rocks out of a plant container.

Somedays kids are so much fun >:(
