Anyone find anything new recently they want to talk about?

Kinja!!! Kinja!!!

The most recent, as in I noticed it around lunch today, Kinja “update” has borked it almost beyond use on my mobile (Samsung S8 using Chrome).

I really just wanted an excuse to post this image.

Australian Open

For those who are interested, the women’s final (Osaka v. Kvitova) is on right now. It has been an awesome match so far. This is what a final should be.

Fresh start to the day - OT

Today has potential to be a good day. Hopefully learning about these will help some of us have a fantastic Friday.

Bad pet parents make me angry - first gripe of the new year!

I was just at Tractor Supply, and someone brought their adorable 4ish month old St. Bernard puppy into the store. She was as well behaved as a puppy could be, but she felt the call of nature while in the store. The owner picked her up to make her stop peeing (good job there), but then she stayed in line with her puppy…

Saturday Night Antisocial

Today was a big day in the Blalock household. We adopted Kira (formerly Snow White). So I am also making this a Saturday Night Selfies post! (Warning, I am not going to delete this post.) We will be staying home tonight to help Kira acclimate to her surroundings.

I was just listening to this past Friday’s “It’s Been A Minute, with Sam Sanders.” He said something along the lines of “Black Eyed Peas music sounds like something robots would make to sell products to other robots.”

These people are elementary school teachers

More bullcrap about my house More bullcrap about my house

I took the week off to work on the house. Today’s item was redoing Bralock’s closet. I was hoping to remove the old hardware, patch, and get the first coat of paint on before she got home from work. Oh, silly me.

Best-worst costume ideas Best-worst costume ideas

Alright gang, I want to hear about your favorite or least favorite best-worst Halloween costume. What does that mean? It means whatever the heck you want it to.

Inane whining

My in-laws are still here visiting us for what was supposed to just be the weekend. They are lovely people, but my MiL is driving me up the wall. She is someone who cannot abide silence. No one is talking? She is humming to herself. Everyone in the same room? She needs to talk about how she is wearing a bra because…

Unpacking - OT Unpacking - OT

I just finished setting up the entertainment unit. Unpacking may happen at a much slower pace now.

Tweet beat?

I don’t use Twitter, but I check a couple of accounts. Hopefully you all will pick up my slack on this.

I know I just did one of these last night...

But I just found this, and I had to share.
