I took the day off. I did that because I’m going to have to work Saturday and well, I had to work on Labor Day for crying out loud. I had every expectation of making use of my 3 day weekend to get ahead on a few things before the opera gets crazy. I had a nice do-able list. Did I do those things? Well……. nooooo…. So what did I do today? I went on a long fruitless train ride in search of interfacing for the opera which I’m going to have to mail order anyway. Then I went home, ignored the dust kitties and took a long nap that was far more satisfying than it ought to have been.
I can’t say I totally wasted the weekend, though because I cleaned the oven. I had to clean it because when I got back from California my oven looked like a ham and a loaf of bread had exploded in it. It was greasy with charred bits and ashy flaky stuff here and there. Now, mind you, I had a slight mishap with the oven over Christmas. Which you can read about here: http://sewforth.livejournal.com/2007/12/26/
I cleaned it then. So…….how did it come to look like it could catch on fire any minute? Particularly since I haven’t really used it much since last Christmas and I was gone for 2 months. I’m sure it wasn’t that bad when I left.
I don’t remember roasting anything that would produce that kind of mess. I must be in denial about more than a few dust balls. Like cooking in my sleep or a carnivorous split personality. Plus, I don’t think I can really blame Imp for this- I’m guessing she’d rather use the microwave anyway.
I’m not altogether sure I like it or that I will actually wear it. Anyone care to offer an opinion?
That is, I think you can. I think I’ve enabled comments. I can’t be completely sure until someone tries. I still haven’t been able to import my old blog to this one but I have added a link to the old one in the sidebar.
One thing I miss about the old blog is the location/music tags at the end-and I especially loved the fact that if you clicked on the location, even if it wasn’t a real place, it took you to a satellite map site that actually tried to find it. I guess I can add whimsical locations and music to my posts- but I’ll just have to do without the map link to a galaxy far, far away.
Location: On de Nile
Music: Little Egypt?
