Weird late-night musings

Oh, the strange things you think of when touching up paint in the wee hours of the morning. . .

The thought that consumed me last night was thus:

"I should make a button for Pagan festivals. It should say: 'I'm taken'.

No, it should really say:

'I enjoy fine conversation and good flirting. I like to have fun and to talk about all sorts of stuff. Just remember: if I'm flirting, I don't mean it; if I'm drinking you can't get me drunk enough; if I'm staring at you, I probably think you're hot, but I'm not going to do anything about it and you can't make me. I have a girlfriend whom I love very much. Yes, that also means I'm straight. In short: if you're looking to get laid, you're wasting your time.'

But that would be too small to read. So it should probably say:

'I'm taken, I flirt, I mean nothing by it. Find someone else to get you off.'

If nothing else, it'd make a great conversation starter!"

I don't know why I thought about this last night. Maybe it was the paint fumes?

Oh, and I think I'll have a twister mat ready for use at Wellspring. . . a large one. . . One that Groves could challenge other Groves on. I already have the canvas.

I slept through the ball dropping in NYC on NYE. I make it a point to sleep through it every year, actually. I find the idea somewhat revolting for some reason.

Brian is coming over tonight to watch the Fiesta Bowl. Yes, I purchased enough beer for him to get properly drunk, win or lose. Yes, I sold out and purchased Tostitos chips and salsa. No, I don't care.

Anyone who wishes (preferably who knows Brian, Tina, and me) is welcome to join us for the game. I'm grilling steaks, but I think I only have two, so that means you'll be eating cheeseburgers or hotdogs (I believe I have some buns).

Oh, and how could I forget?

I finished painting my room! The only thing left is to do some minor touchups, but that's it. I like it.

Though I might end up having to re-hang drywall in there. We'll see.

My altar is now in the process of going up. I'll post pictures when it's all done.

Probably either in March or late February I'll be putting up the wainscoting. I can't afford it right now, but I will be able to in about a month or two. Maybe the tax refund check will take care of that.
