Today was a wash in the productive department. Oh well. Tomorrow is another day.

The plastics are down, lol. You can imagine how stuffy the house was past couple of days. Even weirder, my window is open. I can't tell you how long it's been since THAT has happened. We're talking a six by four foot sash here. It's always weird how sometimes I still live under Mom's rules in subtle, unconscious ways, and while MA has turned me into enough of a natural light freak to get over the-curtains-must-stay-closed thing, I must say I never even considered opening the window. But there it is in front of me, letting in a breeze, the peculiar smell of New York in bloom, and the clear, unmuted rattle of passing Q trains in the open cut behind the house.

It's oddly quiet out there. I say odd because once the city gets above a certain temperature, it positively explodes into 24 hour noise that is only killed by pouring rain. Course everyone down here is freaking out about swine flu so I imagine that keeping folk inside.

I wonder if there's a way to get to Home Depot in Red hook on the bus from here? Apparently last summer one of the gutters backed up into the house, and the ceiling in Mom's room and the dining room got stained. I'm sick of looking at it. Really I need to revive the project of cleaning shit out and restoring. This room hasn't gotten a new coat of paint since the mid seventies. It's gonna be like pulling teeth, but I'm getting back in the mood to reopen that particular battle. Eh, who knows if it'll get done. Heat tends to make that inertia problem I have worse.

I don't know. Just kinda rambling I guess before bed.

Every so often the internet dredges up something amazing out of the sea of kitty pics, V masks and rick astley videos.

That said, this is pretty damn cool.



ETA: watch it in HQ if you can.

kudos to [livejournal.com profile] kshandra for the heads up.

It's probably a sign that I've gone overboard on multiple geekeries that I want to camp IRT stops just so I can get a picture of car #1337 as shown in this icon. Cause you know, just swiping the icon would be cheating.

...It's probably also a bad sign that I could tell from the number which division on which to start looking.

baa.

That "ask me anything under the sun and I will be TTLY ONST 4 SRS" meme is going around again.

No one ever really bites when I do it, but what the hell, do your worst.

I'm not bothering with screening, if you wanna ask something and keep it off LJ, drop me a line: (username) at gmail.
