Happily Boring Life

I’m real­ly post­ing just because I want­ed to use my new icon. Thanks tom­my­di­a­blo! Not that the icon has any­thing to do with this par­tic­u­lar post. Thankfully.

Katie is whol­ly addict­ed to Daria. I’m blam­ing kel­li­na­tor. Just because I can. Well, real­ly because I’d nev­er heard of Daria before I start­ed try­ing to fig­ure out who that per­son in Kel­l’s icon was. But there’s still not that much TV here. Just more than there was before. Dangit.

Laun­dry is going. Dish­wash­er is going. And I vac­u­umed upstairs again. I real­ly need to do the iron­ing. I’ve been avoid­ing it WAY too long. And after Labor Day, sam­bear has to go back to wear­ing dress shirts, so iron­ing has to be a week­ly (at least) thing again. But hey, I already have a nasty headache, so I might as well do some­thing nasty like iron­ing, right?

Gam­ing tonight with James. Sun­day night with Bren­da. And Mon­day we get to go see ga_sunshine! Yay!

Last Fri­day after­noon I sud­den­ly lost the abil­i­ty to hear WABE (FM 90) any­where near home. I was in the car with G and we were lis­ten­ing and sud­den­ly it fuzzed out. As of yes­ter­day, I can hear it in the car, but none of the radios in the house will pick it up. WABE has no idea why—they say noth­ing has been changed at all. I’m miss­ing my fix. And we’re real­ly close to the tow­er, so it real­ly seems odd that we can’t pick it up.

I seem to recall that both pub­lic radio sta­tions can be heard on SAP on the pub­lic TV sta­tions. But for some rea­son, I can’t get the SAP any­more. I won­der if that’s due to the cable box? I was able to get it before. Or maybe they stopped broad­cast­ing it that way.

I know, I could lis­ten to the web­cast. I don’t want to. And to hear it on decent speak­ers, I’d need to run the line from the com­put­er back over to the stereo. Which means find­ing that line. I don’t know where it is at the moment. And for some rea­son, the AUX port on the stereo is all fuzzy, so I’d have to unhook the video part, and I don’t want to do that, either. It isn’t a great stereo, but it’s bet­ter than the TV’s speakers.

Yeah, a real­ly pid­dling thing to fuss about. Here we are with a bunch of oth­er radio sta­tions, plen­ty of CDs, MP3 files, a bunch of music sta­tions through the cable TV that we hard­ly ever lis­ten to, and I want one par­tic­u­lar radio sta­tion more than I did before because I can’t get it. But it is the only way to hear “The This­tle and Sham­rock” around here.

R is still home. I’ll have to go up to the school this after­noon and get his assign­ments so he can catch up over the long week­end, or he’ll real­ly be slammed on Tues­day. He’s sleep­ing. He isn’t hap­py that “sick mode” does­n’t include video or com­put­er gam­ing. If you’re too sick to go to school, you can sleep, read, or maybe watch some TV—but that’s it. But if you have enough ener­gy to play Star­craft or use the Playsta­tion, you should be able to go to school. From what he says about his class­es, most of them seem to involve less chal­lenge than the games. But if he just got to sit here and play video games, he’d be “sick” forever.

Cur­rent Music: New Wave chan­nel on TV. Sounds like The Police.
