The Cable, Man.


February 19, 2010 by sandwichcontrol

First of the bat, my new article is up this morning. Check eet out.

I think, for my safety’s sake, that we are probably going to have to get cable. As much as I am enslaved by the television when it is on, Pancake Land is having a very frustrating time without the noise. She is starting to redirect her frustration at me and it’s scary. Perhaps, once Prince Jazzbo gets back into town I’ll have him run a piece of the existing coaxial cable to the location of the television, just in case we get cable. Or, alternately, if we have cable and we would never know it because it is not hooked up to the television.

Today I get to start calling galleries again for work. Goodie. I hate cold calling. I feel so bad for calling people and being like “Gimme your money.” Which is what I am doing, but in a much more passive aggressive way. It just makes me feel so dirty. And not in a sexy dirty kind of way. More like a really really wanting to bathe with bleach kind of way. With lots of scrubbing.

“So….dirty….(scrub, scrub, scrub)”

This weekend I am going to hopefully get the last of our crap out of Little Peddler’s house. Then I won’t have to listen to her asking me every time I see her when I am going to get the rest of the stuff. So much for that, “take-your-time-moving-out” mentality she had when we first told her we were moving out. I understand that she is anxious to get to work up there. I would be too if it was the first time in over ten years that I had my house all to myself. Well, and G-Man. This is the first time in over ten years that there have not been any of the kids living there. I give Taco Planet six months before she starts hounding him to move in.

The house is starting to look more and more like a house and not just a building with lots of piles of junk in it. Paintings are starting to be hung up. Shelves are filling up. The centrifuge has begun to sling our belongings onto the walls. Between that and the fact that I took out all of the garbage, we can finally walk through the house without constantly trying to avoid obstacles. It’s so nice.

Well, I’ve got to get ready for work. More soon. ~SC
