A: Stick it in the basement

Q: What do I do with this?

Even as my house cleaning strike pretty much continues in the main living part of the house, I've decided to delve into the underworld. Yes, the basement — shelter of all possessions homeless. You don't even want to know what I've found down here under layers of dust. Anyone need some Camel cash? How about a selection of dry-rotted rubber bands? Want an old checkbook (one of those big notebook style business ones) to a closed account? Perhaps some miscellaneous screws and electronic parts? The real waste of space, though, is stacks of old postal forms and boxes. I have the mother load of Priority boxes, Express Mail tape, customs forms and the like (from the old action figure business). So anyway, I'm covered in filth at the moment and I thought I'd share that.

By the way, how many flashlights are too many to have? Is 7 too many? What's the limit on partial gallons of paint for a household? Is 31 excessive? Do I really need my old crutches? Why do I have a Razor scooter? Is it decadent to have his and hers power tools? Actually, I'm going to answer that one: I don't care. Milwaukee is too heavy for me. I need my Ryobi. It would, however, be most helpful if either of us ever put them away.

While you ponder all that, I'll leave you with a more important Q&A:

Q: What happens when Van Halen's Jump, Yes' Owner of a Lonely Heart and Starship's We Built This City get mixed together?

A: Compliments of my brother's mad mixing skillz...

In other news, my husband just informed me that WarGames 2: The Dead Code was "a steaming pile of crap."

Dude, I own like 5 or 6 of 'em and I live in a studio apartment. Maglite, two mini-mags (one with LED conversion), LED light on keychain, crank-powered emergency flashlight/AM radio (courtesy of my folks after the great windstorm of '06 in which many lost power for days but my lights did not even flicker) and I think I might still have the green flashlight I took to college.

Just put them all in different rooms of the house for emergencies or something.

Do I really need my old crutches?
Oh, totally. Think of the possibilities! Home movies, flopsy scams, hitting people with them....

Why do I have a Razor scooter?
I've often asked myself, why does anyone own a Razor scooter?

Is it decadent to have his and hers power tools?
Actually, I think that's kind of awesome. His and hers Glocks, his and hers power tools....

A: Compliments of my brother's mad mixing skillz...
....MADNESS! :-)

Naw, seriously. It's... the lead of Jump, the rhythm of OoaLH and the vocal chorus of WBTC. It's... odd. I mean, it all fits together, I guess.

This is news?


I just noticed that you switched from coveting Aeryn Sun's boots to coveting Liz Sherman's. Are they really that awesome?

I never even thought of pulling scam with my crutches. What a great idea! ;)

The Razor scooter was an impulsive buy when they first came out. They were just so fun looking, I wanted to ride one around. And I did a couple times and it's been gathering dust ever since.

Actually, I think that's kind of awesome. His and hers Glocks, his and hers power tools....

Yeah it is kind of fun. He's a big guy and I'm a small chick, so sometimes these his and hers things are necessary.

I was just watching some Farscape and now I don't know whose boots I covet more, Aeryn's or Liz's. Aeryn's boots changed after a while and I never liked them as much. It was the gigantic kickass boots she wore in the first few eps (maybe the whole first season?) that I loved. The soles on those things were like 2 inches. AWESOME.

ETA: And if only my foot were larger, I would be ordering THESE right now. That's about as close as it gets to Aeryn's or Liz's boots. But they don't have my size. *sniffle*

Aeryn's first season boots were pretty kickass. Although as a guy who wears boots for a living, I suspect that those 2 inch soles would be a pain to walk on. I do a lot of heel-to-toe walking, and I've worn my soles way down at the front and back. On two-inchers I'd probably wind up walking on a pair of inverted parabolas.

Those motorcycle boots are pretty badass looking. I'd want ones with toe reinforcement, tho. *checks available sizes* Good God, woman! How small are your feet?

I believe 2" soled boots fall into the it's better to look kickass than to feel good category.

Good God, woman! How small are your feet?
Heh. Small. I wear a 5 1/2 shoe. Why do you think I'm such a badass in my fantasy life? I'm 5' tall - not exactly intimidating or formidable. ;)

And toe reinforcement would be good.

Oh, 5 feet isn't that short. There are some women at my work who probably barely break 4 feet. They have to reach up to the push-bar on the door.

....Your feet are pretty freakin' small, tho. ::wears size 12 boots::

Size 12?!
Those are some mighty big feet you've got there. Yes, my feet are teensy compared to yours but compared to the rest of me they're not small at all :)

4' tall women at your work? Is there a yellow brick road nearby?

Yeah, or sometimes I can get by with a size 11 extra-wide. It's width that was always a problem. I have broad gorilla-feet.

4' tall women at your work? Is there a yellow brick road nearby?Four to four and a half, yeah. It's not like I have a yardstick or anything, but they come up to about sternum-high on my 5'8" self. It's just the edges of the bell curve in play... there's also a few women there well over 6'.
