Auditioning for KISS

Auditioning for KISS, originally uploaded by MistyHCunningham.

Here's the Weekly Punk'd. Le Punk and I were just hanging out when we heard a bug buzzing around in the window. I got some good shots of him chasing it around the apartment. This shot however, was afterward, as he decided to show his disdain for me and for having his picture taken. I wish I had been able to get a clearer picture, but I feel pretty lucky since I've rarely ever been able to get a picture of him making faces.

Punk loves to be tucked in.

In the tradition of Dooce.com, I've decided to do a semi-regular pet photo. Heather calls hers "Daily Chuck" (her dog's name is Chuck). In that spirit, I've decided to do "Punk'd".... Hope Ashton Kutcher doesn't sue me for copyright infringement.... Here's today's Punk!

Here's the picture I promised you of the magnetic curtain I made for the apartment door. It's really fun to play with... providing you don't get the magnets stuck to any piercings.....

Oh no! Sheldon's broken!

Yay! Sheldon's fixed!

A few days ago I promised you photos of the carnage that was Sheldon's condition. This was how happy I was after he was out of intensive care.

Aren't you jealous?

Oh Sheldon... Why do you scare mommy so?

Today Sheldon's other hinge cover broke because the screws in the right hinge came undone. So Dr. Screwdriver and Nurse ButterKnife took him apart again and did (what has become scarily routine) surgery. And I'm happy to say, I'm typing on the patient as we speak. I just hope he doesn't rip his stitches and bleed out. Pictures to come once I stop holding Sheldon and reassuring myself. (Otherwise known as once I get off the couch, let the cat out of time-out and retrieve the cord from the bedroom so that I can get the pictures from my camera.)

Nighttime thoughts.

It's 10:49 pm and my husband is snoring away (he worked 8am til 4:30 today and has to work again at 6am tomorrow). And you know what? He's pretty damn cute.

There's something stuck under my question mark key and it's a bit annoying.

Last night we had a bit of a panic. One of the hinges on my laptop broke. Probably because the screws inside had been stressed and they came undone. We had to take apart the entire lid of my baby (who I have decided shall be called Sheldon from here on out... go figure that I've had Sheldon 5 years and it'll probably die soon and I'm just now naming it) in order to fix 2 screws because the case was blocking where they needed to go. I took pictures of the carnage of course. It's back together now only a little worse for the wear (we decided there was no way we were gonna try to put the broken hinge cover back on. 1 lousy (well 2, since it's broken) piece of plastic is not worth it. We also noticed the other hinge is a bit loose, but we'd have to break the plastic casing on the hinge in order to fix it, so we'll let it go until we have to address it. Pictures will hopefully come tomorrow since I'm charging my iPod (the (product RED) second generation shuffle in case you were wondering)right now and I don't want to stress Sheldon by plugging in 2 USB devices. Our internet has been spotty lately so I don't want to have to deal with Flickr right now either.

My toe is still sore from this week's spousal abuse. Haha, for those who don't know the story, Monday night, Andy was trying to distract me from taking a walk with tickling and the possibility of sex--scandalous, I know. (Don't worry, I didn't turn him down... haha, newlyweds after all...) So in the midst of tickling me, he was holding on to my feet and I, of course, was kicking and trying to get free. As I was kicking, he let go. (He says he lost his grip... whatever. pssh) and I kicked straight into a cement wall. OUCH. It cut open my little toe and bruised to the middle of my foot immediately. It swelled for a while, tho most of it has gone down by now. My little toe is still a bit swollen and pretty sore, but the bruising it starting to fade. Oh well. I lived. And for the record, we still went for a walk that night.

I'm making a magnetic curtain for the tiny little window in our apartment door. (pics when it's finished.) When I'm on the couch midday (like today), any light coming in seems to shine directly into one of my eyes, making a terrible headache behind said eye. Andy has wanted to cover the window since I moved in, but then how would I look to see who's at the door? And how would Punk watch the yard? (side note, whatever is underneath my question mark key is really getting annoying now!)

Anyway, I suppose I should move on to other things now, just wanted to update you on the little random bits of my mind.

Thursday 13

I'm slacking lately. I haven't done a weekly list for Sarah and I just wasn't going to do a Thursday 13 until I was browsing over at Suburban Bliss and ran across Melissa's "Life List"... I tried to link both websites, but Blogger hates me and won't show them. Damn.
I had a "Bucket List" way before the movie came out. I still haven't even seen the movie, so I just call it my "things I want to do" list. Lately, I've been slacking, but I have been working on it for the past few years, so what I have now is my "things I want to do, with a few that I accomplished" list. (It's a wordy title, but what did you expect? Something short and succinct? Psssssh. Dreamer.) In the spirit of the Thursday 13 and Life Lists, I'll share my list today.

1. Ride a mechanical bull.*
2. I've never been on a boat. I should do that.
3. Go on a hot air balloon ride.
4. See all 5 Great Lakes.
5. Ride a Ferris Wheel.*
6. Visit at least 5 National Parks.
7. Go to a "real" concert.*
8. Fly somewhere.*
9. Visit a foreign country.
10. Go parasailing.
11. See a bear in the wild.
12. See an alligator in the wild.
13. Go to "Fair." (I swear every Mid-westerner beside me has and it's damn annoying. It's like a freaking cult or something. And no one calls it "The Fair" or anything, just "Fair.")

* denotes things I have done. I realize some of these don't seem to make much sense... so ask me!
