Amazon Weaning

As most of you know, I loves me some Amazon. Since we don’t drive, it’s incredibly easy and awesome to get canned and dry goods, batteries, cooking stuff, whatever we need delivered within 2 business days (or faster if we feel like paying for it). We have a Prime subscription, which is going up in price again even though it just went up. We also had a Prime Pantry scrip (they used to charge $5.99 to deliver grocery items at…

We doth not purchase it…

I don’t buy much stuff on the eBay, because it has always seemed about as trustworthy as a garage sale in a town you don’t live in. Occasionally though, I can’t resist. Between an extra gig, H’s work bonus, and my tax return, we had a bit of money for H and me to buy ourselves something fun. For my thing, I bid on an Agents of SHIELD thing, signed by Bill Paxton. For anyone who doesn’t know me, Bill…

Holidays, Happy.

Every time I come over here to post I feel like I should apologize for not having done so earlier. Screw it. I can’t imagine that anyone is truly fussed about whether or not I blog. What’s up with me?Well, I’m still hoping to start a new business venture this year. It’s gonna take about $3,000 for startup expenses for my Kickstarter. I need to buy some things for packaging, bases and other supplies, a printer with all that entails…

Musicality

It’s no secret to anyone that I suck at music. More accurately, I’ve never really put a bunch of effort into learning an instrument. I’ve tried a few, and don’t appear to have any real talent. My fingers don’t like to cooperate with my brain (which may also be why I suck at yarn crafts and videogames that aren’t puzzles), and I’m not very mathy. Plus, practicing an instrument is SOOOO repetitive that my mind starts to melt after about…

Florence Scovel: Just Say No

As any regular reader knows, we’re not wealthy people. That doesn’t stop me though, from engaging in an occasional indulgence. There’s a company called Florence Scovel that advertises like crazy on Facebook. I confess, I find many of their shiny baubles appealing. Turns out, there were some things I didn’t know about them. For one thing, they totally co-opted Project Semicolon by selling pieces featuring the logo and semicolon–but without giving credit, or a share, to the late founder Amy…

The Annual Giving of Things

So, we had Xmas. It was also H’s birthday on the 20th. This means that at the Webster-Friday abode, there was much materialism, indulgence, and slothery. Why slothery? Because I made a commitment to watch #Arrow in its entirety, and I’m now about half-way through season three. Lots of shenanigans to be called on that show–but it’s still a fun watch. Apparently it takes a mere 5 years and a death in your family to become a world-class assassin. Unless…

Hartman & Tyner & Fuckery

Continuing our theme of 2016 has been the absolute worst year in my adult life, our complex sent us a note threatening to kick us out because there are stains on our carpet. Apparently, this complex is so super nice that our filthy carpet is making them pop their monocles. In fairness, the carpet in the hallway does not look nice. But they actually accused us of having “ground in cat feces” in the carpet, which just typing that made…
