A total lack of recent blog fodder forces me to fall back on the good ole random dot-point post.
- It is hot here. Very, very hot.
- Still, could be worse.
- I have spent the last four days avoiding/ignoring the heat by reading the entire archive of Questionable Content* from the very beginning. Hee.
- We have a new fish in the fish-tank. His name is Zoomy and he is a Sucking Loach (he looks like the brown one, not the yellow). We got him because the tank was getting a bit manky (or should I say completely bloody disgusting), and I didn’t want to have to clean it myself. Seriously, this little fish is the king of cleaners! I’m starting to think perhaps we should genetically engineer a House-Cleaning Loach. I could just go out and do fun stuff, and come home to a perfectly clean house and a fat, happy little house-fish. Yeah.
- On Thursday I went into Orange and enrolled in a TAFE course. Starting next Tuesday, I will be working towards a Certificate II in Information Technology. Hopefully this will mean that instead of my default setting of “Huuuuunnnneeeyyy! It’s doooooing stuuufff!! Make it stoooop!!!”, I will be able to use my computer effectively and sort out my own problems. That’s the theory, anyway. Plus, at some point in the future, I might decide to try the Working For a Living thing again, and prospective employers seem to appreciate Bits of Paper.
- Still no knitting progress worth showing – see above re: Hot.
- When Sasquatch plays on the Wii, his little butt wags in time to him waggling the remote. This tickles me more than I can say.
- I bought a bag of brown rice the other day, and there was a recipe for the yummiest rice salad on the back of the package. I made a big batch to keep in the fridge, and I’ve been eating it at almost every meal. I can’t link direct to the recipe, but if you go here and enter Brown Rice and Mixed Bean Salad in the search field at the top right, it’ll take you there.
- Tech Support found a frog in the back yard yesterday (it hid away before we could get a pic). I can’t tell you how happy that makes me! Not only do I like frogs, but they are a harbinger of a healthy environment. Our back yard is a happy place!
*The linked strip is not a new one, but it’s knitting-related and very funny. Also, the most recent episode is a bit on the rude side, and if you’re like me, your computer is out where the kidlets can wander past and read over your shoulder.
