The non happenings.

I bet you all thought you'd tune in this morning for some great pictures, and stories about annoying people. Instead all you got was a princetastic Jaguar. Well, this is the reason why. I was involved in the mundane this weekend.

I'm not sure what motivates me sometimes. Maybe it was because I spent 12 dollars on grated Parmesan cheese. You know.. the kind you put on spaghetti. Or that my water bills have gone up 50%, and now they are threatening to hike electricity and gas. And maybe perhaps air. I'm not sure.

Anyway, I freaked out and put in a call to the people who deliver firewood. I didn't even think they would be open this early in the season, but two days later - it all sat in a heap in my driveway. So full - I had to park on the lawn. All white trashy like.

My excitement over saving money on the wood quickly turned into "who's f-ing brilliant idea was this". Stacking a cord of firewood seems like a pretty easy task. Like yoga. Right?

The first day started out in a methodical puzzle building activity. I have to make the most of my stacking space. I don't live on a farm after all. By day two, it turned into a "just put this shit anywhere" event. And by the end of that day I'd felt thoroughly spanked. You all realise its the middle of summer right? Always a brilliant idea to spend two days in the mid 90's doing physical labor.

At any rate - I now have more firewood than is legally permitted in California. You think I'm joking! They actually passed a law this year where they can ban you from burning firewood on certain days. We'll see how that goes.


  1. I am going to send you some pictures of the crazy a$$ stacks of wood in my neighborhood.

    Sarge's dad once hit him in the head with a piece of wood when they were stacking for the winter. One of the hazards I guess of growing up in Maine.

  2. Ohh!Do.

    I bet Germans are serious about their wood-piles.

    P.S. I just found out I'm going to event where Jamie and Adam will be. I am going to attempt for a second time autographs.

  3. AEEE!!!! That would be awesome!! Piko deG got the 2nd and 3rd season of Mythbusters from her aunty for her birthday. Still loving them, and bothering me to do the Diet Coke and Mentos thing.

    Germans are serious about their wood. Our house used to have a fireplace, but the landlord took it out. I'm both sad and relieved about it.
