General Ramblings

Yes, I know my site has had more face lifts than Michael Jackson and Tina Turner combined, but I think I have finally come to liking this theme, though I think I need to replace the coffee cup with a can of diet coke or a water bottle.  I don’t drink much coffee.

As from my post “Who Would Have Thought”, I had to make the drive out to Lancaster to get my divorce decree so that I could prove I don’t pay “the ex” a penny.  I made the drive and got the paperwork without much incident, but just being out there reminded me why I moved:

103 degrees and about to rain. F you Palmdale on Twitpic

There were some issues with the condo purchase due to the fact it appraised out lower than the asking price, but I was able to make thing work and things are still on track for a close on the 2nd week of September.  On that note, the repair request I made came back.  They agreed to fix the water heater, yay, but instead of putting the wiring in conduit, they decided to reply back that they would just remove the wiring…..wait…what? yah, REMOVE the wiring.  OK, if it was just extension cords strung through the rafters I get that, but that’s not the case here.  This would remove the working garage door opener as well.  OH HELL NO!  My relator didn’t know I hadn’t received this paperwork yet ( she got it on the 24th ), and had I not hounded her on the 27th for the second time about it, I wonder when I would have gotten it.  That could have been bad new for me, or at least added aggravation.

My order from ThinkGeek.com arrived yesterday: 2 of the 6″ candles, 2 of the 4″ candles and 2 of the sun mason jars.  The candles are pretty cool, but definitely require a bit more force to “blow out” than I expected. One of the candles doesn’t work when set to yellow but the blue option works fine.  Looks like I get to test out the exchange system of ThinkGeek.

This weekend Brooke and I are going to see Inglourious Basterds, look for a washer and dryer set for my condo and just try to stay out of the heat. This is supposed to be one of the hotter weekends of the year so far, we’ve had a pretty comfortable summer up to this point.
