Well, I've been to bed once and realized my brain was moving at break neck speed so I knew it was a waste to lay there.
On Sunday night the AAR mini-poll closed but it was a holiday here for us so I didn't get to the final ballots until early Monday morning. Then I decided tonight that I needed to recheck the tallies which meant going back through the ballots and double checking my math.
So, two weeks of work were just done again (only in a smaller scale because I was only looking at the top 15 heroes) over the last few hours. Needless to say, my brain is still working out the logistical problems. Stupid brain.
I also finished the last coat on the 'new blue' room a couple of hours ago. It used to be 'in your face' blue but now it's a muted blue that would look nice with silverish accents. Course, it's a bedroom and maybe I haven't made the colour cozy enough. Then I have noticed that the trim colour of white (by not a pure white or a cozy white) is bothering me and maybe I'm going to have to figure out a white to paint the trim and bookcases.
Yep, that's going through the old noggin. Stupid brain.
Oh. And then there is the bathroom design which has been at a complete stand still for way too long. I'm at a loss on how to proceed but Bob's taking next week off so hopefully we'll make some headway.
Also, he has gutted the basement. I will post the only before pics I have and then the 'holy mother of God!' pics. Meh, I knew it was only a matter of time before Bob went to town, it's just that this basement seems to have moisture in it (weepers are full) so things are smelling oh so summery fresh. *snort* Also, the door to the basement was taken off the day we moved in (Bob had some reason and I friggin' caved) but it used to look down into a little square vestibule with three doors. One on the right, one in front and one on the left. Now there are no doors and I can see the concrete basement floor. Perfect.
I mentioned the smell right?
Oh and here is something that floats around in my brain more often then it should.
Wow, now that I have gone looking for the dog of Pompeii I have discovered how our memories can become distorted over time. If you click the link you will find the dog of Pompeii but for some reason I remember the dog being in more of this position.
I remember our grade school teacher pointing out that the dog still had his leash attached to him and I swear the picture looked just like Cody does in this picture. In fact, whenever I see a dog lying like this I call it 'the Pompeii Dog'.
Now I want to see if there were other dogs that were there and kept because I do remember the dog being on his side. I don't remember ever seeing the one from the link above. Seeing as how I was a child that could become easily upset, that link of the dog would have greatly upset me as a child because it looks like the dog suffered. From my memory I remember thinking how the dog was just sleeping when the eruption happened and he died instantly and didn't suffer. Seriously, I'm so messed up from that 'Pompeii dog' that I didn't want to put the picture up on my blog!!
Stupid brain. Sorry, that's the kind of night it's been for me.
I'm off to do some drive by blog hopping to see if others had a nice weekend.
Then I'm going to try and go to bed again *cocks head* stupid brain is still wheeling and dealing. May be another hour yet!
Oh and I promise I will get to some reading soon and tell you all about my books. Again, life took over and Lazy Cindy had to go on vacation, the bitch, and she didn't leave a forwarding address!
