Did I really run round your lawn naked?

Not terribly crazy about my new hours. Plus as winter sets in it will be dark when I leave the office. Always a cheer.

Yesterday I was trying to remodel the bathroom cabinets. They're wood so naturally I attempted to strip the varnish and then stain them. This did absolute jack shit. I painted them instead and they look just I like I wanted. (If I had tried the easy way first, it would have never happened).

I also ripped up 1/3 of the tiles in there and laid some new ones, which match both the cabinets and walls more than I could have hoped. So much nicer than the horrendous patterny shite that was in there previously. But this morning, Bourdain had to deal. He always runs in post-shower to lap up all the tub water (he's not really the classiest of cats) and he was very OCD about the tiles, only touching the old ones, even if it meant walking on the edge pieces. I set him on the new tiles and he left.

He does things in baby steps, tomorrow is a new day.

I need to finish up October's movie trivia for the theatre. Now that I've been doing the trivia for over a year it gets a little trickier when it come to holiday months. Halloween is no biggie, as I've resorted to 50s and 60s monster flicks, of which D and I know plenty. (All that MST3K background, you know, in my case). Bert I. Gordon to the rescue! Check out this cool site, they have all the posters from the films of each MST3K season, I just now stumbled across it!

So October's a breeze, but I'm dreading November's batch. Thanksgiving movies run on the terribly thin side to begin with. I'll have to do some brainstorming for that month. More than usual. I expect it to hurt.

I want to see the bathroom and your groovy quotes!

Didn't Peter Graves appear in another cheesy movie that you posted about?

Vel: God, it sounds like I'm drunkenly scrawling quotes on the bathroom walls. That would be cool, too.

Come visit our bathroom! And the trivia is actually facts and questions. Like the dumb trivia you see on the screen at the theatre? Only hip and cool.

Skyler'sD: Look at you! Hell, yes. Film Crew did Killers From Space. MST3K has brought me so much film joy.

That reminds me, way back in the day I used to own the poster of How to operate the zero G toilet from 2001 A Space Odyssey! Wish I still had that baby!

I cringe to think about what I used to own! I might not have to work again.
