I Checked. Still Hate Winter.

000Cant believe this much time has gone by. Sunday a week ago we had our Thanksgiving since SWMBO was gone on the actual Thanksgiving. Her son and his girl came over and everything went rather well. Until about 2230. Started feeling “ill.”  Then started having to run to the crapper for some explosive peeing out my butt. Started feeling nauseaus. And that’s how I spent my Sunday night into Tuesday mroning.

Had an appointment with the butt-Doc (Silver Stallion PreLims) that I had to cancel. Girl on the phone started asking me about rescheduling. Told her “I’m not thinking real straight right now. Laying on the floor by the toilet cause I can’t get more than 3 or 4 feet from the damned thing before I have to rush back. How about we reschedule later?” To which she totally agreed. Guffaw. Guffaw. Guffaw.

000So, that lasted until Tuesday morning. Felt weak for a couple of days after. Funny that no one else got even slightly ill.

The rest of the week was pretty SSDD. Rained a lot but me and the Dog still did our walks and stuff. On Date Day last Saturday SWMBO took me to a new Mexican restaurant in the Silverdale Mall. Was okay. I really shouldn’t order taco’s in these places though since it turns out I like Taco Bell Taco’s best. Even if they aren’t REAL Mexican taco’s.

Sunday SWMBO made dinner and we watched “Incredibles II” on the big tv and even used the sound bar. The Missionaries interrupted the move by stopping by but it was nice visiting with them for awhile. And we still finished the move after they left.

0001And that’s it Not a while lot more going on. Did order two 2-TB USB drives and another Raspberry Pi 3 on Amazon this morning for Christmas presents. Making one each for my Father-In-Law and SWMBO’s son to be media centers. The drive will be attached and have movies/tv stuff on them to get them started. They’re both smart enough to figure out KODI, I think.

Made myself some corn and mashed taters to go along with the piece of fried chicken left over from last nights dinner. Was good. Dog enjoyed licking the plate too! Soaked some black-eyed peas overnight and started those cooking for dinner tomorrow.

Watched Pacific Rim 2: was okay. Looks like Animae to me.

Supposed to have windy and wet Wx moving in.

I Owe Scott Bakula An Apology

I never watched “Enterprise” just because I did not like Scott Bakula. Not a bit. Never saw him in anything, or as any character, that I liked. That “time travel” show he was in? Watched part of one episode and never another. So when “Enterprise” came on, starring Scott Bakula, I never watched a full episode. Nor many parts of any episodes.

Which is why I owe Scott Bakula, and the rest of the cast, an apology. Got the entire series on Blu-ray and have been ripping and converting it to .mkv files for our TV drive on the NAS. And, started watching. And find it a fairly decent show. Even Scott’s part as Captain Jonathan Archer.


About half way through the 2nd season.

Otherwise, not a whole hell of a lot going on around here. Know I haven’t posted; just nothing going on. Been raining a bit (rather hard at times), getting colder, really gets dark early (which totally sucks).

Date Day with SWMBO is still the high light of my week. Yesterday she took me to the all-you-can-eat  Chinese place in Port Orchard. Then our usual stop at Walmart afterwards. She had her 59th birthday this past Tuesday but I can’t tell. She still looks young and beautiful to me.

Oh, had my Stress Test last Tuesday. Went Too Well, actually. They got me all wired up and on the treadmill ready to go. Started the thing up. About 3 minutes in the thing tilted and sped up and just as I was hitting my stride they stopped it cause they had everything they needed. What? Heart had just sped up (the EKG was looking good too (I was watching)), my breathing was faster but good, not much was hurting knee or foot wise, and I was ready to do another several minutes or so. What do you mean “you can stop anytime now.”? Not one chest pain in all that.

Go figure.

So when I go see my Doc (the Idiot) I haven’t any actual proof that I get chest pains. Ah well. Guess I’ll die a healthy man.

Anywho, want to get this posted so y’all will know I’m still alive and kicking. I’ll get out of this posting funk as the weather improves. I really do need to get off my ass around here.

Actually Missed Date Day Yesterday

70e50bf89e79b74c4efe49a53195072dWe didn’t go on Date Day cause SWMBO is down in San Diego visiting her brother before heading off to Oregon, Ohio to visit her folks. She’s been itching to go visit her brother ever since I visited him last July (after my step-mom’s funeral) and reported back to her that “That boy is fucked up.” Man, her “fix-it mode” kicked in and she’s been chomping at the bit to get down there and get started on him. Poor guy.

So we couldn’t have Date-Day yesterday. I was going to go out anyway; and wound up going to Safeway for $32 worth of stuff and having a single pizza bread thingie while watching Amazing Spaces. And except for missing SWMBO it was okay.

106243_D0210b_76d36258.JPGNot a lot going on around here. Me and the Dog still go for our walks even though the weather has turned rather cool. Hasn’t really been raining a lot so that’s good. Except the trees really need the rain.

Today was a fairly normal day for us. Even with SWMBO gone for a couple of weeks. So used to eating around 1530 that I had dinner ready and was eating by 1600. Will be looking for a snack later …

And that’s it. For some reason (The onset of Winter?) I just don’t feel like posting as much as I have in the past. Part of it is I’m so boring. Part is that I have other things on my mind lately. And a really Big part is that I’m boring. Even to myself.
