trash talk, and the weekend

January 18th, 2010 at 15:22

I’m working on writing up a Yelp review for the guy who set our bathroom on fire. I’ve been sitting on it for a while because I didn’t want to be completely pissy and thus detract from my actual message of “holy shit, STAY AWAY.” However, we hired him because of Yelp, so I feel the need to make sure that people hear what happened. That said, I can’t decide: 1 or 2 stars?

We were chore MACHINES this weekend, and got a ton of stuff taken care of. We’re still barely moved in, but we are making strides to remedy that by buying a new entertainment unit — now we will have a place to unpack our billions of DVDs and video games into. We went the (ick) Ikea route for cheapness’s sake, which underscores two things to me:
– there are WAY TOO MANY pregnant women in Ikea
– I hate that place; it’s too crowded and they never have every part I need
I mean, we need 6 drawers and they only had three. Total fail, people. B and I had some bonding time while starting to build the main body of the unit, though, during which he kept bossing me around and then trying to squash his desire to be a bossy butt. :)

Ricky Gervais was amazing during the Golden Globes. He’s still got G-d status ’round these parts, pilgrims!

Katie can now identify her nose, ears, and bellybutton. She gives kisses when asked and is generally one of my favorite things on the planet. I try not to have my entire personality replaced by the insane amount of devotion I feel for her as her mom, but omg I love my kid and I love my husband for being such an amazing dad to her.

Also, HELLO CALIFORNIA, you’re used to rain! Suck it up! This reminds me of Wisconsinites freaking out every time it snowed, as if it were some new phenomenon.
