this is the funniest thing in the entire world.
December 17, 2004

I've decided to do the laziest "blogger" thing in the world: post an email.
The info: Sos the Amy and I email each other frequently (at home, of course), like good little 21st-century kids, and she said that I should totally post the email I sent to her on the olde blog, since it is apparently the funniest thing she's ever read and she may or may not have peed just a little when she read it. Since I do everything Amy tells me to, here it is (just read in top-down order... it's been edited to make sense):

is your weekend just crazybusy because of holiday preparation stuff, or do you have other things as well (like your mom coming for dinner ...)

>>> "Devlyn" 12/16/04 >>>

both. here's an outline:
9am - breakfast
10am - go get washer and dryer
11am - struggle to get washer and dryer inside the house and set up
11.30am - go to hardware store, as the hoses purchased don't fit
12noon - back home - hoses fit, turn washer on - doesn't work
1pm - fark around with washer and dryer until i want to poke my own eyes out
2pm - (possibly) pick up my v. own car!
3pm - elated at the possibility of the freedom to drive around, i head to the "good" hardware store, and get mobbed by traffic at the mall
6pm - mother and her boyfriend show up to empty house, as i'm still at the hardware store waiting in line, thinking, "why are people purchasing gifts at the hardware store?"
7pm - finally get home, calling mom on the cellphone apologizing for not being there, because of being stuck in line at home depot
8pm - make self dinner, and eat directly from the oven while staring at the wall
8.15pm - start on the gift-making, but end up quitting after 15 minutes, as there isn't enough light in my house to be able to do this properly
8.30pm - do some work on the website stuff
8.45pm - search for an installation CD that i can't find because i haven't unpacked as many boxes as there should be unpacked
9pm - unpack boxes
10pm - drink coffee
10.30pm - after finally finding the CD i need, it doesn't fix the issue i'm having with the site (i need a tutorial that didn't get installed for some reason), give up
10.45pm - watch some bad anime that i downloaded for some reason
11.30pm - go to bed, feeling worthless and getting pretty much nothing done for the day

10.30am - wake up, mouth all cotton-y from oversleeping
11am - breakfast, then cigarette
11.30am - watch movie on the teevee with the boy, who will have gone to hawkin's for "breakfast" instead of eating something healthy. i will, of course, have had him get something for me, as well, even after eating an egg and toast.
1.30pm - decide it's time to start doing something about the gifts
2pm - cigarette break
2.30pm - take a shower
3pm - start working on gifts
4pm - do some laundry
4.30pm - work on gifts a bit more - get frustrated by not getting the correct stuff at the hardware store. determine to make it work
4.45pm - give up on "making it work"
5pm - eat some food
5.30pm - work some more on other gifts that i actually have all the parts for
7pm - finish 1 (one) gift
9pm - finish 2nd (second) gift
9.30pm - run out of juice
9.45pm - watch movie
12midnight - go to bed, remembering then that i could have been knitting the gift for my mom. curse the world.

so, yeah, i'm pretty busy.
