When I was looking for bouncy songs last Monday, I TOTALLY forgot about Genticorum. "How could you?!?!?!" you ask. And you would, of course, be justified in your incredulity. So today it's Malins Plaisirs for me. And in the spirit of such, I will do my best to conduct my day accordingly - pudding, playing outside, blogging, writing, and uh, the other thing. :-)
My sis and I used to be able to talk to each other on Gtalk, but when my laptop blew up something went wrong with all that. Bummer. But today we are Skype™ing each other. And I owe it all to Peter because I saw the button on his blog. So thanks, Peter! This is even better than Gtalk because we can conference call if desired. We never figured out how to do that with Gtalk (if it's even possible.) Of course I have spent far too many minutes monkeying with my avatar and all that kind of junk. Right now it's this guy.
Help! My lap is on fire! Yet another byproduct, no doubt, of malins plaisirs. }:-)
Some of you know how I feel about carpeting. Well, a friend lent me a carpet shampooer so I did part of the living room today. I'm still not sure how I feel about this endeavour. First of all, the stuff I bought to put in the machine - I need to learn to read labels better. It says "extraction," which I immediately took to mean that it was for use with extraction machines, but now I'm not so sure, because it also says "DO NOT LEAVE ON CARPET" which makes me think "Crap! This is a spot treater." Blargh. Oh well. I changed to Mrs. Meyers after the first bucketful. So the long and the short of it is that I swished about 7.5 gallons of water through my carpet and I'm not sure that it's really any cleaner. Smells nice though. Maybe it would have been better to simply flood the carpet with soapy water, scrub it around with a big brush and suck it all up with a shop vac. Or light the carpet on fire. ("You're gonna light my country music award on fire?") I like that last option best. I will say that I put clean water in and dirty water came out. So maybe it did a little good. Or maybe it will cause the carpet pad to mould and make us all sick. Yum.
Speaking of yum, I saw my first Casino Royale trailer last night. And an interview, courtesy of the same site. *happy place*
Continuing with the yummy theme, Fal (N'approchez pas, fillettes, du tic-tac du moulin) suggested that photos of the cake and pudding would be nice, but alas, the cake is gone and the pudding is no longer pretty. Guess I'll have to make some more! }:-) Only for my readers, of course.
Haven't decided about sparring tonight, but my knee is lots better and usually it's not free-sparring on Mondays, so I probably will.
This is not me. For every minute it stays up, the blackmail price goes higher. Yet another malin plaisir. Never call my bluff. }:-)
