Wizardy
For some reason I needed to know who sung 'Tin Man,' so I googled it, and yes it was America. Then like a half an hour later, my wife turned on the TV and the Wizard of Oz was on. Then, like a half hour later I was watching the Cartoon Network, and whatever I was watching mention something about 'Oz.' This has been a weird experience.

Well, I have come oh so much closer to being a homeowner today. It looks like things are going to work out, but I had better knock on wood. I'm sure something could still go wrong!

Spent
I've been insanely busy and now that I have five minutes to myself, I don't know what to do with it. Five minutes. I wonder what it is like to have one, well-paying job with insurance? That must be really nice. I can't begin to imagine it.

Russian spam fuckers
I can't decide if these periodic spam comments from random Russians are terribly annoying or terribly amusing. I guess I'll go with amusing, but still they are fuckers.

Sick
I'm infected by some subtle disease. Okay, it's probably just a cold. But anyway, sometimes I don't really notice it, other times my nose starts running like a river, and yet at other times I feel like I'm in space. I need rest, maybe some water.

Crap
Things didn't go well today at Chinese school. It wasn't a disaster, but I really was surprised that things had not gone as planned. I would go into the details here, but that wouldn't do any good. And anyway, who would want to read it. Regardless, it is something I should be able to handle. Even so, I find myself really bummed, more than I should be. I think that I feel this way because many things are coming to a head now, not the least us trying to purchase a house. Things just are not going well generally. Don't get me wrong, nothing awful has been happening, but still, I need a vacation, I need something new, and most of all I need lots of easy money.

I just ate ice cream and a bunch of bread. I regret that.

Waiting for bad news
A little while ago my wife and I placed a bid on a house and it was accepted. It is a 60's ranch, nice walk out basement, good neighborhood and close to lots of convenient places. We did what everyone should do and hired an inspector. He found a big ol' crack in the foundation, which of course made us disappointed. We had it looked at by a few folks that fix such things and the seemingly most reliable one said it would take $8,600 to fix it. Dang, we refuse to take it out of our pockets, so we have to ask for a reduction in cost. We also are freaked out by the furnace because it looks like it is on its last leg. We don't want to whip out the full cost of a furnace right away, so we decided to try to get the seller to pay about half. Thus, we are asking for a $10,000 discount. There is reason to believe that the owners might go for it. Who would like to buy a house with a foundation problem? But we had already talked them down quite a bit and now we are asking for quite a big chunk more. I hope they say yes. Not that I don't think we can find another home. I do. But I am sick of living at home. My wife is even more sick of it.

LJ Reunion
I've had this idea for a while but never did anything about it--until now. If you happen to read this, tell me something here. What has changed. What is new. Anything. LJ used to be kinda important, sorta. So let's have one more party here.

Now let's see if this works at all.

Mexican food
The sad thing is that after years of craving authentic (American) Mexican food, when I finally got it, it wasn't nearly as good as I wanted it to be. That's the way it always goes

Star Wars
I've been obsessed with Star Wars lately, be it comics, books or movies. I'll be using the comic adaptation of the Revenge of the Sith in class. Fun.
