Random Tuesday Thoughts - Rum, Delivery Guys, Oceans, OCD
As it is Tuesday, The Un Mom is hosting her random party. Go see her and you’ll understand where random originated.
The plans for my Rum Punch Party (Version 2.0) are going very well. So far, I’ve managed to talk my friend into making me a cake (scuba themed) and my mother-in-law into preparing the roast beef (for BBQ beef on a bun). A couple of friends are bringing salads. My BF that can’t cook is bringing deviled eggs, which should be interesting – about 3 years ago she called me and asked me how to boil eggs (true story). So far, I have 18 confirmed guests. If you’re looking for something to do on the 26th, I’m looking for someone to bring some appetizers…
We had a new refrigerator delivered on Saturday. Our “old” one in the basement stopped working and since we cannot possibly live throughout the summer with sub-par warm beer, we were left with no other choice. We paid extra for the delivery and removal of the old one. The delivery men were obviously not informed of this because when I told him it needed to go to the basement, they were miserable and copped some serious attitude with me. First time (in a long time) I’ve had to give two grown men attitude adjustments. Sears Canada has not heard the end of this either…
Our home computer died on Sunday. Fortunately, J was able to restore everything including the installed programs. I guess his OCD tendencies have paid off. He is living proof that having 2 separate back-ups and a disaster recovery plan for your home computer can in fact come in handy. Who knew?
I guess maybe I should listen to him now that he’s telling me we should have a 72 hour emergency kit at home. Apparently, two candles and a book of matches does not constitute a “kit”.
I’m still absolutely miserable in my day job. I NEED to be kept busy. If not, I find fault in everyone around me and soon their actions become like fingernails on a chalkboard.
Today is World Oceans Day and in honor, CrazyCris is hosting a World Oceans Day Blog-a-thon, so be sure to stop on over and pay her a visit…she’s wise in the way of oceans, fish and sea critters. Unfortunately, I’m not an active participant this year, but in doing my part, I’ll share a photo from some of my adventures “under the sea”.
