New Sofa and Recliner

Next week I'll be the proud owner of a new sofa and recliner.  My old sofa was just that old and I didn't have a recliner.  I'm ditching the love seat and getting the recliner, which I think I'll enjoy more.   Both are very comfortable from my trying them out at the store, so I'm happy.  I'd like to tear up the carpet and put down a wooden floor and some other changes, but right now I have to see how the money situation will be.  More problems on the homefront, with outside repairs continually  cropping up.

Heather's Wedding

One of my best friends was married this past weekend.  Now I know why I hate pictures of myself.....

The Darkness on the Edge of Town

A Mess

I have a problem with a corner of my roof and part of the side of my home.  Which just happens to be where my computer and office is set up.  So to get in here lately I've had to climb over all the junk that had to come out of the closets so they could work on the walls.  The good news is that it's almost done.

Harlan Ellison's Last Convention

According to this Harlan Ellison has said MadCon will be his last convention and that he is dying.  To many of you reading this you will ask who Harlan Ellison is.  And that's a shame.  Mr. Ellison is one of the greatest living writers of the last quarter century.  For now I'll leave this short and sweet and just tell people to go out and find anything they can by Harlan and read it.  You can thank me later.

The Senator and the Madame

For more information about this whole episode check out this page and the book about the DC Madame.  I really don't have a problem with David Vitter visiting prostitutes, but if he's going to run on a family value ticket and be holier than thou about others than I have a problem with that.  And the worst part about this whole thing is that he'll probably be re-elected.

I wanna see this when it comes out.


I don't shop Sams Club that often, but every now and than I'll go check it out. I was in there the other day and I found this:

I was actually looking at this set online just the night before, so it was kind of weird.  But everywhere I've seen this set it's cost more than I wanted to spend.  Sams had it for $19.99.  At the price I couldn't afford to pass it up.  Four cds of great music, plus a DVD.  I was a happy person.
