Aro wanna go!
This is what happens when you use voice to text to make a note of an idea and the keyboard is set to Spanish but you’re speaking English. Part one.
Part two will be tomorrow.
I’d like to begin this morning by wishing a very Happy Birthday to Ojeda the Curve. Be sure to wish him one as well.
Also, Happy German Chocolate Cake Day!
This would’ve been my Nanny’s favorite day of the this year.
Most of you know this story, so bear with me as I tell it again.
When I was growing up my spring break always fell on my birthday week. So Prince Jazzbo and I would spend the week with our Nanny and Papa and celebrate my birthday during the week.
And Nanny and I always made my birthday cake together. Every year it was German Chocolate.
So, my whole life I believed that German Chocolate was my favorite cake and I would always request it anytime a cake was being prepared in my honor.
Years after my Nanny died it dawned on me that German Chocolate cake was amazing and all, but it was by no means my favorite.
This is when I realized that my grandmother had Jedi mind tricked me into making her favorite cake every year as a child. And I then believed it well into my thirties. All because I was a stupid little kid and if she was going to heat up her house by making a cake it was going to be one she wanted to eat.
She was a true badass.
Now I love German Chocolate even more.
But it’s still not my favorite.
It’s just my Nanny cake. Whenever I eat it I think of her and that makes me happy.
So today is a happy day by default.
Yesterday was a good day.
I rocked my work work.
Then I got most of the bathroom in the basement painted.
This morning I’ve got a plumber coming to look at, and hopefully fix, the pipes.
If they get that done today, I can drywall the ceiling. Then all I’ll have left is the floor, the shower, the trim, the toilet, and the vanity. It is coming together really fucking nicely.
Jitterbug started priming the walls of the main room last night after Aldis the Goldenboy’s baseball game. That room is getting huge in a hurry.
I should be able to wrap up the bathroom by this weekend and then I can start laying flooring in the rest of the basement.
Just in time for Le Duc’s arrival next weekend.
No pressure or anything.
Oh, look at the time.
I should get moving before the plumber gets here.
See ya’ tomorrow.
More soon. ~SC
