The One Where I Bore You To Death

I mentioned that last Wednesday I shampooed the carpet. What I didn't mention was that 2 hours were spent doing said activity. And during one of those hours I wasn't using the cleaner stuff on the carpet. Just water. Because I'm a dumbass. Tomorrow I'll get to do it again but I'll make sure that the machine is turned on properly every time I get ready to use it.

Son of a bitch. I swear, I had something to talk about and it just flew out of my head when I turned on the computer.

Hey! Speaking of computer...

I got the laptop back! Woo hoo! It only took 2 weeks to get it fixed when I'd been told 2.5. They had to replace the hard drive. Between you and me, I think I know what contributed to the hard drive's demise.

I have a bad habit of lying laying lounging in bed while using the computer. I have my knees in the air (covered with a blanket) and put the laptop on my lap. I'm pretty sure that this caused it to overheat. No, I take that back, I'm positive it caused it to overheat. The computer started to run really slow and the mouse wouldn't always work. (Those mice are lazy little bastards!) One night, Sweety was trying to get his fix of Spider Solitaire and when the computer froze up - he slammed it shut. I think the slamming was the straw that broke the camel's back because after that it wouldn't come on anymore.

I bought meat in a box today. I'm kind of embarrassed. It's a kit that has a roast and vegetables and seasonings in it. When I cook, I need directions and this appealed to me because it had very clear directions on the box as to how to cook the contents. I tried to hide it in the icebox because I know that Sweety is going to give me shit about it when he sees it.

Stinky dog is driving me nuts today. She is especially needy today. Like, all-up-in-my-face-when-I'm-sitting-down-poking-me-in-the-chest-with-her-big-paw kind of needy. Oh yuck. She just left a big, juicy Basset hound eye booger on my shirt. Where is Tiny dog? I need her to lick it off.

oh, that last bit made me want to puke a little. Yuo know, how your stomach turns upside down when you read something particularly gross? Doggy boogers do that to me. The idea that tiny dog ate it. oh jeeze...I might lose my lunch. gotta go...

Meat in a box!?!?!?

Let me know how that goes.

One time Micahel bought a similar kit, only with chicken.

I threw it away the next day. He enver asked about it.

Amy said...

Congrats on getting the computer back!

And... doggie eye boogers... blech. You are way cooler about those things than I am. You'll make such an awesome mom when you get around to procreating. LOL

Ginamonster - I was too horrified to want to puke. I wasn't able to breathe until Tiny had done her job.

Jeni - I will definitely let you know how it goes!

Amy - My kids aren't going to have snot. I'm going to stuff cotton in their noses.

Mike said...

Glad you got the computer back. I hope I never have to take mine somewhere to get it fixed. I would be too embarrassed to go back to pick it up knowing that they had found my ample stash of porn.

Meat in a box...hmmm. Well I am big on gravy in a jar and potatoes in a can and recently have discovered the joys of pancakes in a jug, so I guess meat in a box could work.

Chickie said...

Mike - I wasn't too keen on taking the computer in because it did have some rather whole-nekkid photos on it but I had no choice. I tell myself that the hard drive was too ruined for some computer geek to have found them.

Pancakes in a jug? I'll have to look that up.

I have two huskies howling at me for JalapeƱo popcorn right now, so I know how it is with needy dogs. I swear that stuff must be like doggie crack or something.

Chickie said...

The Phosgene Kid - My dogs treat any people food at doggie crack. I like to put them in a room, close the door and then put a potato chip under the crack in the door. It's a lot of fun to see how hard they'll work to get it through to their side of the door.

Hmm. I'm not taking my laptop into bed anymore ...

I want to hear more about that Meat In A Box! I've not heard of that before...and with all the fixin's too! Amazing! What kind of meat is it, Chickie? Well, I hope it turns out wonderfully!

Poor Stinky...she needs some loving....! Maybe Tiny can give her a Big Hug!

Chickie said...

Malnurtured Snay - It sucks the fun out of it for me if I can't take the laptop to bed. I'm gonna have to get a lapboard or something.

Lady of the Hills - The meat smells good. It says that it's pork. I'll give a full update after we dine!

I think Stinky is feeling lonely. I've been trying to give her more attention.
