I've discovered that there are a few seasons of Mythbusters on Netflix, so I've been doing a lot of watching the last couple days.  And although most of what they do on the show is not reproducible, I did see one thing that was fairly easy to do and works.  So here is my brief, silly video!  Password is: misadventure.  Enjoy!

Caffeinated and Waiting Redux

Like I promised, here is the link to the Hyperbole and a Half post that I've had in my head all day.  Besides being scarily accurate to my life, it makes me laugh for a good long while.  If you've never been to her blog, oh my goodness GO NOW.  I'll wait.

As for the rest of my life, well, it's doing well, but not a whole lot has been going on on a grand scale.  Mostly I've been sitting around my apartment looking for work and sending out resumes.  If there is anyone out there who would like to hire a pleasant, good-natured individual, drop me a line in the comments would ya?  I'm really quite handy.  Like a Swiss Army knife.  That sounds like it should be it's own post actually, which I might keep and use since blog fodder for me these days is running a little low.  I did make a week-long trip up to the summer theatre I usually work at (but decided not to this year), which of course lead to some mild adventures as well.  Not the least of which is how I managed to poke a hole in the bumper of my less-than-a-year-old car.  C'est la vie.  I'm also trying to start up a crafty business (for reals this time), since I continue to say that I'm going to and never *actually* get around to doing it.  Kind of like blogging...heh...*cough*  I actually sent off some coffee cozies to a cafe that said they would love to sell them in their store, so it is actually official, I'm in business.  *cue confetti*  Next step is to work on my sad, little, empty Etsy store.  The only problem I seem to find is that, like in my day to day life, I tend to be a little ADD in my crafting.  I can make a lot of things, but what do I make to sell?  A little of everything?  Start with one thing and add?  WHAT DO I DO?!?  Life is hard.

So in a nutshell, that's what I've been up to.  Bumming around, looking for work, and making coffee cozies.  Fun times in the life of the unemployed.  Oh, and being a roller derby official.  But that's another post.

Caffeinated and Waiting

I'm not even going to pretend anymore that I'm going to blog regularly. They're all empty promises, and I'm not going to be that way to you guys (if there's even anyone still reading reading out there in the blogosphere). Right now I've just finished a latte that I got from the local coffe roasters a block from my house, and I'm waiting for my car's oil to get changed. When I get back to my computer I'll link to a particular post by Hyperbole and a Half that keeps running through my head today, but for the moment I just have to tell you its awesome because I'm on my phone and trying to link that right now might make my head explode. Did I mention I've had coffee? Maybe that's the secret to blogging...I should just have a double shot espresso before I plan to write. Apparently it makes me very chatty. Anywho, I'm hoping my car will be done soon so I'mma wrap this up. I *will* post again with said promised link and maybe even a more substantial update. Stay tuned!
