|08:57 am - The more you learn, the less you know. . .|
Imagine a strong Celtic warrior on a windswept plain. He's covered from head to foot in blue woad, a 10 foot spear in his left hand. He wears no shirt, and his and hair kilt is stained in blood.
Now, take that image, move it into a small white room and replace the blue woad and the blood with white paint. Make the 10 foot spear a paint roller extender, make the kilt a pair of jeans, and make that Celtic Warrior me.
Then you will know exactly what I looked like when I finished the second coat of paint on my bedroom.
Yes, for those who need the mental image, I have been painting shirtless. For those who didn't want the image, you have my permission to claw your third eye out.
Unfortunately, the room isn't actually totally white yet. It's still a pale pink in some places. I might be fighting a losing battle. I'm praying that one final coat will do it, but I'm not sure I should hope, as hope can simply be dashed upon the rocks.
I hope that I can give everyone a truly great update on Monday about the house. And about whether Tina likes it. (cross your fingers, please)
Oh, on a side note, the Grove collected 18 toys for Firefighters4Kids at the Yule ritual. A thanks to those who donated! (In my geeky nature, I worked that out: 1.5 gifts per ADF member in our Grove; 2.25 gifts per person participating in the gift exchange; and 18 happier kids than there were yesterday.)
I dropped them off yesterday at the Fire station on N. High, next to Kroger.
Wow. triadruid took up something I did and turned it into a meme. I'm honoured :)
Now the rest of you: go do the same!

I'm not surprised that got turned into a meme...
It was a good idea.
You're putting so much of yourself into this house I'm sure Tina will Love It!
I know anything that Stephen puts himself into like this I absolutely love no matter what.
AHAHAHAHAHAH And why is Tina not getting pics of this funny warrior? LOL And did you bother to use a primer coat? :)
Heh. It's the "high hiding primer" that I'm talking about! It doesn't "hide" anything! :)
Tina could get pictures, I suppose, but there's no one here to take them. It boils down to a simliar argument she uses for me:
Her: "What would you like for Christmas"
Me: "You, giftwrapped with a bow."
Her: "And who would you feel comfortable with wrapping me up?"
I wonder if she'd be comfortable with any woman taking pictures of me shirtless. . .
Muahahaha a woman that thinks ahead.... LOL I suppose a guy to take pics of you, but who do you know that's secure enough? LOL
I know plenty of guys who are secure enough to take pictures, but I know that those same guys would never let me live it down. :)
Thank you for bringing a smile to my face just before the interview, LOL
I work hard at it. Glad I could be of service. :)
Hmm, I probably shouldn't mention what happened last time my family undertook a major painting job.
Wait, that wasn't the last time, nevermind. The last time was this summer, and I got out of it because of not being able to handle to fumes. Ha.
The time before that was the bad time. My dad took a swan dive off of a tall ladder. Landed on his back. Got a lovely burst fracture in L1. Freaked the hell out of me (only myself and youngest bro were home at the time). He spent the next couple months prone.
God, that wasn't fun.
But, since I figure your house doesn't have ceilings as high as mine, you shouldn't worry. Just don't put newspapers underneath ladders, ok? Thanks.
Since I've already seen you shirtless, the painting image doesn't kill me. No worries, there will be no third-eye massacres in this house. At least not in relation to me right now.
