|11:09 am - Wallpaper-free|
Well, the attic is now almost wallpaper-free. I have about two or three hours left to work on that room. Once that's done, I can be happy with it. . . Until painting day comes.
The project after that is the first floor bathroom.
Then the Master Bedroom.
When I'm done, there will be no more wallpaper in that house. Not even wallpaper that's been painted over. And there's a lot of that.
Oh, and I think I've solved the cat-on-altar problem. I bought some shelving the other day and put it up in my room. It's not perfect, and it's nowhere near done, but I can promise that the altar will be awesome when finished, and more pictures will (of course) be forthcoming. I managed to torque one screw in half and strip another while putting the shelves up, though, so getting them down and then back up when I go to rip down the wallpaper should be fun.
Today is bill-payment day. At the end of this month, I have to make my first car payment. I've worked my credit card down, and if I find a way to get a bit of money made on the side, I can make quite a dent in everything.
Oh, and January is my renewal for my car insurance.
And I have to buy new tags for my new car.
And this whole month is just going to be tight :)
No good christmas presents for anyone. Least of all myself.
On the bright side, though (and one should always look on the bright side), the 1.10 patch came out for Diablo 2, and it ROCKS.

Wallpaper painted over? That has to be one of the oddest things I've heard today, I can't think of a single reason why that would be a good thing.
Let me put it this way. We have walls that are painted, wallpapered, painted over again, and then there're wallpaper "accents" around items that are supposed to be hidden (like the thermostat). There is wallpaper (that has been painted over) on the ceilings of two rooms. There is occasionally wallpaper to be found around ceiling fans.
Me, I'm amused by the whole thing. My girlfriend is often not :)
Heh. Keep that up too long and you'll start losing floor space!
Painting over wallpaper is EVIL.
It's a hellworthy offence.
Good luck with the house improvements. Don't fall off a ladder, my dad did that once while painting- it wasn't fun for any of us, least of all him.
See you tomorrow, perhaps.
Of course you'll see me tomorrow. I have to be there, and so do you. We have amendments to pass. Sorry. :)
Damn, forgot about that.
Guess I better get my act together, then.
Oh, and send out the weekly email, damn.
If I get the room wrong this week, hopefully someone will notice.
Hmm.. cat on altar problem. If that doesn't work, there is a thing you can do. Make false edges on your altar. If you have your altar high enough for the cat to jump to still, you can prevent the cat from reaching the altar by putting flexible paper extending from the edges. The cat wont be able to get a grip on the edge to actually get up on the altar and the cat wont be able to figure out that edge isn't real. If you do this, you will want to make sure that the cat has something soft to fall on underneith.
Actually, I was thinking about that. It's worked on other surfaces.
But it's so darn ugly :)
Ah, well, you have to give a bit to win sometimes.
if i lived in the same town as you, and thought you were single, i think i'd ask you out on a date.
If I were single and you lived in the same town, I think I'd say yes.
