Zen and the Art of House Maintenance
Oh, it is so WIERD to be done the South Korea contract! I scarcely know what to do with myself my life is so FREEEEEEEE!!!!!
Ok ok, I still haven't gone to the gym. nope.
I'll try to go to the gym. this week. sometime.
Anyways, I did 8 pages of comics in the past couple days, for an anthology book. I thought I was for certainly missing the deadline. Now I'll have to fedex it to NYC to meet the absolute third time put back really this is the final ever deadline deadline. But the story is done and it is ok. I hope.
I washed the dog drool of the walls! YES!! Do NOT keel over and die! IT is TRUE!! I sprayed the walls with the plant sprayer with floor soap and baking soda, like I put on the plants, and it is the same way I washed the floor. It works great. Vaporize that stuff, let it sit, and then rub with a dog towel (that is a regular towel, bought second hand, and used normally to wipe the dog off). yeah. Looks GREAT!
I scraped the bottom edges of the wooden window sashes to get off all the flaking paint and putty from past winters' condensation. I washed said sashes. I bought alkyd primer and primed the suckers. Even the outside window ledges! I puttied the puttiless spots. And now tomorrow I shall paint the sashes and outside window ledges. The windows (which were washed last week, which is why I saw they needed repairs quickquick before it gets COLD FOR REAL) look GREAT!!! (like the droolless walls).
I cooked up all the halloween pumpkin. Then I made some more pie crusts (6). I made two pumpkin pies and handed them to my downstairs neighbor (the one with the sort of creepy teenage son who likes my comics but not me) and to the upstairs neighbors with new baby. The downstairs neighbor had NEVER had pumpkin pie before... I convinced her with a little taste of filling. A convert. And the upstairs neighbor just looked happy. They don't realise I am sucking up to them so they'll later eat the poisoned meals I give them (like in V.C. Andrew's Flowers in the Attic) and then when they die I'll steal their new baby mwhahahahah! Oh don't be silly. I just didn't know what to do with all that pumpkin. Last year the pie moulded in my fridge. urk.
I made two mushroom quiches, and froze one, and also the other two pie crusts.
I dunno. It is frightening isn't it!!
I still have lots to do, don't worry.
I have to clean up all the parts and pieces of my replaced computer... my G3 Power PC, my Epson 700 printer, my La Cie cd burner, my Wacom tablet... dang. Clean em up, take pics, put em in boxes, try to sell em.
I have to finish painting the windows, and while I'm at it, why not paint the bathroom? And the to-be-kids-room. I have to iron the curtains for said windows.
I have to make little posters to sell my two large plants that I want to sell (I got back the photos I took for said forsale posters).
I have to take down the halloween lights and put christmas lights.
Well, that will keep me busy for a bit.
But I just wanted to say, that getting all this stuff done, like fixing the windows, makes me feel on top of things. capable. handy. able. competent. hah!!
It feels great.
OK, it's nearly 6am. I totally have to get to sleep. Or I'll get NONE of that done tomorrow! (actually I have to scan the 8 pages of comics, burn them onto a cd, make a photocopied hard copy, and send it all Fedex tomorrow... busy busy).
Go over to Mom on Roof's now, and leave her a note to say you love her and want her to come out of her depression, or at least let her know if Barry Manilow is gay or not, ok?? thanks!
