Uh....
About Us. From Our Blog. Keep in Touch. Liquid Lapdance was invented in Las Vegas by a group of friends. The original idea came because one of the guys didn't like lap dances. He said the dry grinding left his penis raw.We thought, “There has to be a better way.

Due to a large amount of snow in a very tiny parking lot, we didn't get Chinese for dinner last night, but everything else went of without a hitch.

There was an episode in the shower that ended with +Eddie McBride​ yelling "YOUR NAME IS TOBY!" at one point. Don't ask, because I honestly don't remember how it started.

Watching 50 Shades was painful. And not in a good way. We spent the majority of the film trying to come up with better pairings. My favorite was replacing Ana with Mark Ruffalo's Hulk and Christian with Tom Hiddelson's Loki, although I also think it would be greatly improved with the addition of Wolverine or Liam Neeson as either character.

We're expecting a few inches of snow over the next day or so, but tomorrow is supposed to be very nice, and we get the new furnace and I can stop panicking about the water pipes.

+Darren Kosinski deep down, I know the pipes will be fine. Some reading up has settled my nerves a bit, but I freak about everything if it's not something that I can control.

I've given up my toasty spot on the couch, where I could be huddled under the electric blanket, and traded it for a spot at the kitchen table, where the laptop is, so that I can frantically hit F5 every few minutes in hopes to snag a black lipstick.*

This is what my life has become.

I've got a 3-day weekend.  I traded shifts with a coworker yesterday so that I could be home while they worked on the heat situation, only to discover that the furnace was dead.  We're talking the Ned Stark sort of dead, not the Bran and Rickon level of dead.  Everything was working out so well yesterday morning when the guy worked up his estimate - it was going to cost us about half a mortgage payment or so, but we'd be able to get another year out of the furnace - and then the CO alarm started beeping, and all bets were off. 

And so was the furnace.

After a few hours, when we had the financials arranged, and I got over the fact that we were dropping 7 months of mortgage payments to fix the fucking thing, my mind settled down a bit, and my stomach wasn't nearly as queasy, and I was ok for a little while.  Unfortunately, I had what I can only guess was a mild panic attack when we went to bed.  It was at that point that my brain decided to fully grasp the fact that we could have died.  If the tech had left when he did, we would have had a couple of days before we were dead.  We could have gone to sleep one night, and then just never got up.  We could have gone to bed together, and only one of us would wake up.  One of us could have fallen asleep on the couch on a day off, and the other would come home to a quiet house with a napping spouse; how long would I let him before I nudged him to get up?  It as a terrifying night for me, and I had a restless sleep.

There are plans for getting Chinese food tonight, which will be followed by getting our buzz on, hitting the shower, and finally snuggling on the couch to watch 50 Shades with the cats huddled against us for warmth.  We're expecting some snow tomorrow, but Monday will be warmer.

Until then, I'm dressing in layers, and thinking about wearing black lipstick.





* I've never worn black lipstick before.

It is scary to imagine a silent killer like that. It's good that you have the CO alarm. Until our last move, I never had one of those, but they are now required in California.

I'm not sure about watching 50 Shades, but the rest of the plan sounds good.

So that's my day.
 
Alright. Here's the update. The wire transfer from my IRA is complete. I called the furnace guy, and he's out on a job right now. But the office said they would give him the message, and he'll call me when he gets the chance. 

Hopefully it won't take too long to order everything needed, and that they can start right away. But for now, i have water boiling on the stove, thanks to uncle Larry, and two space heaters in the living room. to try and keep the heat. thanks to the water and the heaters, we've come up about 10-15 degrees in here.

The heater guy instructed us not to turn on the furnace as we have a cracked heat exchange, and the Carbon dioxide was starting to climb, but when it was shut down, the Carbon dioxide dropped back down. It wasn't in the dangerous level, but was getting to the point where it wasn't going to be safe. For right now, it's warm, and just a little steamy in here.

We're alright, +Crystal McBride  should be at work in a few minutes, and i'm off until tomorrow morning, but someone will always be in the house.

From what the guy was saying, the furnace that we have in here currently, when it was working, was too small for the size of the house. He'll also be cutting an air exchange hole in the living room, as we just have one in the kitchen, and he said that was inadequate for this house.

Good times. Be a home owner they said, live the American dream they said...

Just promoting the shop - our furnace died at some point last night, and I'm hoping to get some spare change in the bank account.  

Also, I'm branching out a bit and have started doing custom Funko Pop toys, if anyone is interested in something like that!  I'm working on my first, so everything is an experiment, but rest assured that any project will still be the same quality that you'd expect from my work.

If you're looking for anything other than vintage stuff and can buy it elsewhere, do so and save your money. Prices are generally higher than you'll find at the Target on the other side of the mall.
