Wow, I know it's break and all, but it's not as if I have been doing SO MUCH that I couldn't drop a couple of lines every other day. I guess it's just such a hassle to deal with my computer here, not having high-speed internet and all.
Anyway, we took down all of our Christmas stuff today, and our tree is now sitting forlorn on the side of the street, stripped of all its glory except tinsel. *Sigh* It's always kinda sad. Our house and our living room looks so baren and depressing now.
I made stirfry in an electric wok today, and I think I did pretty well, considering I had no idea how to do it and had never done it before. We put peanuts, garlic, bean sprouts, snap peas, water chestnuts, cabbage, carrots, celery, garlic infused soy sauce, oil, ginger and hamburger.
It sounds kinda gross, but trust me, it actually turned out really well. Electric woks kick butt. If you see one at a yard sale or something, you should buy it.
Let's see, what else.... I got my window regulator fixed, which allowed my truck to pass inspection. I shouldn't have to worry about it until January 2006. All right!
Other than that, I've just been doing lots of odd jobs around the house, playing Super Nintendo classics like "Super Mario World" "Mario Kart" "Family Fued" "Donkey Kong 2" and "Sim City". Oh man, I want a nintendo soooo bad. But my sister won't let me steal the SNES away to college.
I've replaced 3 recessed incandesant lighting fixtures in the basement with flouresent tubes, (including mounting, wiring) and installed a brand NEW flouresent like fixture in the back of the basement storge room. You can actually see now! Additionally, I replaced the shower head in the upstairs bathroom, the faucet handles in the downstairs bathroom, and I ran wiring through the attic and down through the wall to install a BRAND NEW electrical outlet in the hallway so we could plug in our answering machine and cordless phone. I'm a regular Mr. Fixit.
Of course, I also got the computer working, needless to say.
Well, I think that's enough for tonight, I might go to bed... or I might not. The world may never know....
