Weekly Observations


Olive, ready to attack.

Quick observations from this week and last week:

1. If you will venture that far into the home ware with your wife, you will notice that there is a section of coffee, notably from Hawaii and other exotic locales in most TJ Max stores. On a whim, Miranda and I purchased some of their Hawaiian coffee for nothing else other than it smelled good. Well, what do you know, it’s it makes a darn good cup of joe. So I got twice the coffee, except that it’s a specialty blend, which is a plus, for $6. Point: Seth.

2. I still hate shopping, unless it is for Texas Tech gear or electronics, most notably cameras.

3. It typically takes me at least a week to do laundry. I simply hate the process and it beats me down. It shouldn’t because it’s so simple, but it does. I used to not be this way, at one time in my life I could get all of my laundry done in an afternoon. In fact, when I was in college, I would get up very early, and go do laundry. The biggest reason why I did this was so that I wouldn’t have to talk to anyone, but I also didn’t want to waste any time doing laundry. Now, I could care less if I’m wasting time, which is incredibly inconsiderate to my wife. I’ll get better.

4. I may not be the best lawnmower, but I may be the fastest. I knew it was supposed to storm here on Friday night and so Thursday after work I decided I would mow the entire yard. Now, I knew that I would be facing a very hungry Miranda, simply because I had promised her Mexican food for dinner, but I thought I could do it in an hour and be eating my 6:30. We have a yard that makes up .70 of an acre and when I purchased a lawnmower, I wanted the cheapest one, which means that I have a non-self-propelled lawnmower. Needless to say, I get quite a workout when I mow, but that’s not the point here. Miranda saw me begin the task at 5:20. I took one break to grab a drink of water, and the lawnmower ran out of gas near the end. The lawn was mowed by 6:21, which means that had I not run out of gas, I would have mowed that son-of-a-gun in less than an hour, with a break. I am patting myself on the back on this one, it’s not an easy task, but I’ve never met a lawn I couldn’t tame.

  1. I have no idea what you’re talking about. I’ve always been cheap, er uh, frugal. Besides Gillette’s marketing ploy is unstoppable. The Fusion and now the Phantom? They’re just pulling you in their tangled marketing web.
