ROTD XXII: Room Cleaning

Cleaning my room. Yes, I did this of my own initiative. It was to the point where I could no longer move around anywhere without stepping on something possibly vital. So I said to myself “Dammit, it’s getting clean, RIGHT NOW.” Heh. Little did I know. First step: The bookshelf. Which is actually something like 3 bookshelves comprising an entire wall of my room. 10 feet or so of bookshelves. Which were currently stuffed with computer game boxes, manuals, random books, flashlights, suntan lotion (!), and mom’s college stuff from 15 years ago. *digdigdigtossthrowohcrapavelanchedigshovethrow* And the heinous army of computer game boxes fled before me, leaving only five. Mom’s college stuff from 15 years ago was banished downstairs, to be […]

ROTD XXI: Playing Santa

Firstly, I think there was a ROTD XIX, but I can’t find it anywhere. Any clues? I forgot to archive it. But on to today’s topic: The amusement of wrapping Christmas presents. Mom and I are sitting around wrapping the things, and it comes up to wrapping one of dad’s presents. Mom: What wrapping paper should we use on Dad’s present? Me: It has to go with a gold bow (running out of bows at this point) Mom: Well, um, how about this crappy paper over here? Me: *busts up laughing* Mom: That didn’t sound good, did it? Me: No, not really. And then it gets down the Christmas Eve movies (we generally have 5 or so movies each year). […]

ROTD XX: Fun With VCRs

Or, how to run a VCR. I decided this morning that yknow, I’d really like to watch Last of the Mohicans. Unfortunately, the only VCRs in the house are A, in my parents’ room, and B, downstairs. Now, I’m not fond of camping in my parents room to watch movies, so I went downstairs. The problem here, of course, is that the new VCR (year or two old) is pretty much shot. It has this little habit of eating tapes that kind of irks me… thus necessitating find another VCR. No problem, I figure. There are, after all, two older VCRs sitting around down there. So I hook up the first one, plug it in. WHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Ruh-roh. Yank the plug […]

PRINCE JOHN: Do not try to look for the 19th rant. That is impossible. Instead, try only to realize the truth. BADGER: What truth? PRINCE JOHN: There is no 19th rant.

ROTD XVIII: Food and More

18? Oh dear. But anyway. Unlike the last one, this one IS amusing, so have fun with it. What a day, what a day… I’m running on 4 hours of sleep right now, having gone to bed at 12 last night, and waking up at 4. Had I been following the normal pattern of things, I would have been waking up about now after crashing at 10 or so. That didn’t actually happen today for a number of reasons. For starters, there was some freaking heinous LOSER outside with a freaking LEAFBLOWER. *crashes* WHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Uggghhh… What’s that noise? Oh, a leafblower. If only I had an assault rifle… *thunk* *lies around in a semi-coma for a bit* WHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! *gets […]
