Man, I really need to update more often. Let me explain to you how these multi-week lapses go.
I get an idea for a story, but not enough substance to actually publish it. So, I mentally file it away to work out later. Then, it disappears. This will happen a few times a week. Then one day I look at this place and go, “Wow, it’s been forever since an update. I need to come up with something good. This pressure delays any updates further, as I want to make sure it’s something awesome. Finally, everything builds up to the point where I say, “Okay, new post. Subject: everything I’ve been thinking of for a month. Coherence: None. Structure: Fractured. Go.” In accordance with this process, I present the following.
We’ll start with stuff I need. I need a new humidifier. The one we have on our furnace died this winter. Ever since then, I’ve had this horrid build up of I-don’t-want-to-know-what in the back of my throat. I have to clear my throat every 3 minutes like an old man. It’s really bad at night. I hate it. My wife hates it worse. It wakes Ava up, which makes both of us exhausted. Yeah, a new humidifier would be nice.
I would also love a flat yard. This pool debacle is driving me nuts. Now, we’re thinking about moving the pool closer to the deck altogether. It’ll be a lot closer to the house, but we’ll have to dig up the brick patio, find someway to dispose of it. Dig that section to level, and then find a way to fix the 16′ hole in the yard. The alternative is to rent some big machinery to level out the hole we have and have someone come pick up the excess dirt. If we put it closer to the house though, there will be all of 8″-1′ of clearance between the pool and the deck, and the fence. I really wish there was someway I could pay someone to do this, but it’s too small a job for anyone to want. :/
Tattoos are cool. I wish I had some; however, my wife won’t allow it. I would love it though. I wouldn’t go nuts; just two or three. I’d get three spikes on my left arm, and a Demon Hunter tag on the right. DH tats are just so spectacularly awesome. For such a simplistic concept, there are so many ways to take it stylistically. There’s the basic:
And the epically awesome:
Oh well, it’ll never happen, but a guy can dream, can’t he?
Now, onto things that I have:
Kati is an awesome kid. I love her to death. Today, Sasa was playfully quizzing her about people in her life. “Who’s the funniest person?” etc, etc. When she asked Kati who her hero was, the answer was, “My daddy.” That makes you feel good.
By the way, for concerned parents, Demon Hunter would represent one who hunts demons, not a demon that hunts. Demon Hunter is a band. Demon Hunter rules. That is all.
