Sleepless in Iowa

Posting in Other's Journals again...

My furnace vent right next to the bed had something vibrating in it. So at 12:30, I gave up, got out the Rainbow, filled the canister with water, couldn't get the vent off, went for a screwdriver, removed 2" screws (to hold down a vent??? I don't get it,) screwed the vent back in, replaced the screwdriver, cleaned out the canister outside under the tap (too big for elsewhere when full of crud), dumped the water over the fence into a stud's field where he'd eradicated all the grass, rinsed out the cannister, stored the Rainbow, lay down, and the kitten began to call. Answered him a few times, then went into the utility room and carried him outside. I guess the six toed awesome black male will NOT lose his virginity to Moon Eyes... 2:30.

I couldn't drop off. 5:51, I got up and turned on my favorite classical station. 6:00 am, they began a FUND RAISER. UFF DA. I packed up and came to school.

Ouick, While It's Still Friday

1. Name five things in your refrigerator.
(Off the top of my head, because I'm STILL not home): pancake batter, bagels, eggs, milk, grapes.
2. Name five things in your freezer.
(See above): chocolate ice cream, over a year old, two packets of hash browns, peaches cut fresh off a tree and baggied, various pot pies.
3. Name five things under your kitchen sink.
(See above): two Amway trays of spray cans, window cleaner, a plastic bread loaf keeper full of dishwasher powder, a wrack of clean rags, ant and mouse traps.
4. Name five things around your computer.
Pile of unpaid bills (payday next week... ) digital camera on the charger, stacks of photos, stacks of books, stacks of magazines, many with quotations marked for inclusion in my list of potential starter quotes for book chapters.
5. Name five things in your medicine cabinet.
Nearly everything but medicine... deodorant jars, a tube of Crest tooth paste, regular flavor, a tin box of assorted band-aids (tin VERY OLD, band-aids moderately aged and still sticky), toothed plastic hair holders in black, brown with black spots, and clear whitish, and assorted jewelry, which I never wear.
