What Filled Today

  1. Talked to contractor. Arranged to spend another $1000 on insulation. As I said to my mom this morning, I was trying to figure out what to do with my money since interest rates are so low. Seems that I've decided to spend it on my house. Much easier than fucking around with mutual funds.

  2. Talked to the painter. Got the book of paint chips. Need to pick colors ASAP.

  3. Battled against my Time Capsule. Apple has not mastered the quick start guide. Or the easy-to-follow directions. Seems to be working now. I'm going to give my old router to someone at work.

  4. Mom called. Seems that Lisa bought a 1200 square foot apartment on the Upper West Side. So much for my theory that she's having a baby just to have an excuse quit her job.

  5. Hooked up my Wii. Played foolish games for a while.

  6. Went to the outlet mall to hunt for warm-weather clothes. Decided that I'm in the market for very cheap sandals, as in my experience sandals (of all prices and levels of quality) tend to get really nasty fairly quickly.

  7. Watched America's Next Top Model. I hope that Claire sticks around until the end just so that I can see what Tyra et al do about her hair. You remember how Melrose had the horrible, horrible dark roots? Can you imagine what Claire's hair is going to look like in a few weeks? There are seven episodes left -- which should be 3-4 weeks of real time. Claire's hair aside, Lauren is my favorite.
