good measure.

so it's friday night. im still home by myself. [though tonight i was able to get out of the house for some lovely adult socialization / girl time...which ended in me getting a parking ticket. awesome.] i think i've blogged more this week than i have the rest of the month of may, but here's one more for good measure.

just an update on the leak. my wall now looks like this:



my bed has been moved, along with most of my bedroom furniture. the room smells like must and wall-insides. speaking of which, this is what the inside of my wall looks like in case you were wondering:



these gaping holes are likely to produce which of the following?:
a.) a small rodent-like creature
b.) creepy insects
c.) the awful smell that is already permeating my sleeping area
d.) mold that causes brain cancer and respiratory problems
e.) all of the above, causing insomnia for me

walls will not be repaired until monday. am i supposed to sleep on the couch until then?

i just IM'ed b to ask when he's leaving. his answer: "before 12 so i can catch the train." not a reassuring answer. and no fun for the wife who has to pick him up from the train station.

whatever. i've got a new-to-me episode of 30 rock on the dvr and some cards to make. i'm good to go. sometimes i just get lonely.

and while we're tying up random loose ends on the blog, check this video out. i think it's been making its way around the blogosphere, but i've had the song stuck in my head all day:



i've always loved that taylor swift song and thought this arrangement was so cool...i showed it to my co worker today and she said "that guy is SO good at the piano!" i had to agree. but then i had to encourage her to visit the state of utah, where the average talent range per capita among over-achieving utahns is just about at his level. dang mormons. why am i moving back to that state, where i'll be barely semi-mediocre? i like CA where all you have to do is keep a steady job and write a blog and people are impressed with your skills :)

Oh my goodness! I so totally agree about the Utah thing! I also always feel underdressed- especially now that I am a mom. I am in jeans, a tee and a ponytial and the next mommy over (with a stroller and two toddlers) is wearing high heels, jewelry and her hair looks like she just walked out of a beauty salon! Huh. Thank goodness Idaho is a little more low-key.

haha. YES, the talent level in Utah is ridiculous. I remember feeling very intimidated when I first moved there. I always felt special because I sang and had made all state choir etc. It felt like when I moved to Utah ever other person had "made all state choir" etc. Not to mention, there are so many pretty girls there compared to Virginia. Good thing I'm married or I might have a complex!

Good luck with that hole in the wall. I hope no monsters climb out of it.

Hahaha!! You crack me up. Hopefully the holes lead to (F) a minor nuisance and nothing more. And I love this song!! I've seen it on a couple blogs and I always listen to it. :-)

I did hear through the grape vine that you were coming back to good old Provo. It will be so fun to have you close. Maybe you will really get to meet Cam. Let me know when you arrive and we can get together. Lacy and I have already planned on it. We thought a BBQ would be fun.
P.S The flood stories always make me laugh. What a curse!
