What to muse about today?

Ok. The basement is still damp, though it is much better, almost good, even. Mostly just dampness in the carpet, though enough to get your socks wet if you walk over it. Some small spots where the water just pooled and hasn’t gotten evaporated yet. Some fuzzy spots on the walls where the dampness has done it’s damage, which will need to be scraped and re-sealed eventually. Same for parts of the floor, you can see where the urethane paint is just shot from all the water. Some of the icky red and green is coming through, making the showroom-white seem dull, not just the slightly grey it is. <sigh> Will need to scrape and scrape and then repaint eventually. Maybe I’ll have some help soon.  

Maybe not, if immigration keeps taking it’s sweet time, like it has been. We’re into the seventh month now, with still no end in sight. I can’t tell you how frustrating it is having absolutely no idea where in the process we are, how much longer there might be, what additional delays there might be. <sigh> I do need to stop whining about how they don’t understand that I just want to live my life. That I want to be able to answer the questions posed daily (multiple times) about when he can get here, when the wedding will be, etc.


PS. Am I allowed to giggle about my tag cloud having “john_cusak, margaritas, orgasm” all in a row? Is this a message? <beg>


PPS. David Beckham is going to LA to play soccer? From Madrid? He *chose* to do this??

    I think $248,639,753 over five years helped him make his mind up.

    One hundred and thirtysix thousand dollars a day should soothe the pain of leaving Madrid.

    We're paying him that much??? sheesh. We don't even have soccer on TV here.

    Apparently so. A five year, £128m contract. It's a surprise to me too, as Becks isn't elite class on the field any more and, although he'll certainly raise the profile of both LA and the MLS, will they sell enough "BECKHAM 7" shirts to cover $50m a year?

    I don't think so.
