Frabjous Days

My stomach was dreadful yesterday, though I dragged myself in to work. I’m starting to think there must be something besides wheat/glutinous stuff and corn that I should be avoiding too. Or maybe big factories are simply made for contaminating food. Sigh. This morning, after getting dressed, I had to trade in my pants for ones that didn’t compress my belly so much, because the pants that fit perfectly hurt.

And I forgot the stupid paper that I needed so I’d know who to call and get information from: the city has decided I must raze the old carriage house/garage. I’m not surprised, it needed repairs when I got the house nearly a decade ago (the idiots who owned the house before me had cars stored inside, and instead of getting a sawsall to release the padlocks on the doors, just drove the cars through the doors, damaging its structural integrity). Unfortunately, I have had no money for it; it is also ancient, and always was a wood frame structure built on dirt. Anyway, the letter gave me no guidance as to the timetable the City wants me to follow, just instructions not to repair it and to go buy a permit for its demolition.

I understand enough of how this city operates to be sure that if I don’t do it by their (unstated) deadline, they’ll get a court order and charge me court costs, and if I still don’t do it, they’ll take it down and charge me for the work, without giving me any chance to negotiate rates or anything. Sigh. I really didn’t need that yesterday when I was feeling dreadful. Or in January at all! It’s cold in Milwaukee, don’t you know? And snowy too.

In other news, I ran MalwareBytes on the laptop last night; we’ll see if that speeds it up any. Now the program is running on the infected desktop ‘puter. The attempt to plug it in to the internet and update the MalwareBytes before running it failed. So now I’m running it, I’ll delete everything it finds, and then try again for an update and run it again.

Sketchfest is happening, but I don’t know if I will have any focus for it. And I have non-sketching chores to do.


I'll get through all this stuff one way or another, I'm sure, but right now I'm not impressed with the start of 2011.

Though, since I started writing, My Angel put on a special we recorded, so maybe I'll find a little inspiration after all.
