Yes, it’s the complaining of cold time of year, but seriously, it’s currently about 61°F outside and the temp in my office? 62°F. Yes, I did just go turn on the heat, but I don’t anticipate it helping much.

This week I hung a velvet curtain over the doorway to the giant closet off my room (as it has no door) and I hung thermal curtains over the door to the outside from my room, to keep the draft down. I even hung some pictures on my walls. The room looks almost like someone lives in it now, instead of being a beige box with a bed in the middle and lots of shoes on one wall.

And I fixed the goddamnmotherfuckingcocksucking toilet, once and for all (daft, you’d be proud of the approximately 11 seconds it took me). Maybe. I’m keeping my fingers crossed. But hey, it works for now. And see? Curtains and toilet repair, I’m handy! And you wish your life was as exciting as mine.

Perhaps after work I will hit the thrift store and buy a bunch of ugly fleece pullovers to cut up and make handwarmers out of, so I don’t die of hypothermia in this office.

I need a good wall calendar and good pocket planner kind of one. Any recs? or should I just hit Office Depot and make do with what I can find?

Hi, how are you?

  1. I am so very proud of you!
    Trust me when I say, being able to take care of your own minor plumbing problems is an extremely useful skill.
    I have it on good authority that it also increases your attractibility factor by a good %10. Well, up to a point. If you get too handy it goes back down 😐 It is a delicate balance, I guess.

  2. Ha! Got it, competence, but not too much.
