FRIDAY AT 6:30 IN THE AYE-EM

Being off work this month, due to circumstances that were well under my control, I find myself with a whole hell of a lot of time on my hands. I should be using this time to better myself. Perhaps I could work out. Perhaps I could go on a cleaning frenzy. Perhaps I could teach my doggies some new tricks. Maybe I could volunteer at a waffle kitchen; maybe I could learn to make soup, or chili, or borscht.

The picture you see is the new setup for my computing station. I did it simply because I needed/wanted a change (and also because of that aforementioned free time). I kinda like the way it turned out. That Diego Rivera print has been in this house, in that same spot, for nigh upon 25 years, now. When I moved into the house, I figured, hell, I liked it--naked female asses are always good--so there, on the wall, it stayed. For a long stretch when I was a kid, I used to change my bedroom around pretty much every Saturday. The bed and the dresser scuttled around the room, earning frequent flyer miles every weekend. It'd have been interesting to view the changes on some kind of time-lapsed photography. The only problem was that I was limited by the size of the bedroom and the number of pieces of furniture...I could only come up with so many combinations. Though I liked freshening the look of my room by rearrangement, I never broached the subject of window dressings, thank God. ;-P

On this date in history--December 12th, 1970--Jennifer Connelly was born. Happy birthday, Jennifer! There's just something about that woman that makes my insides flutter. One question, though: Why'd she have to get a breast reduction? They were fine how they were, damn it! And if she did it because her back hurt? Well, you should have sucked it up, Ms. Connelly. You had an obligation to all the dogs--er, men--out here who liked your blouse bunnies loud and proud. And, yes, I am crying over spilt milk, and, no, I did not think this statement out before I wrote it, but, yes, it shall remain.

Also, on this date in history, in 1787, Pennsylvania became the second state to ratify the U.S. Constitution. Which was the first state? I'm not sure, but if I had to hazard a guess, I'd go with Massachusetts. The first person to successfully answer that question--Which was the first state to ratify the U.S. Constitution?--wins nothing. Get to it!

I wish my station was that clean, I'm impressed...it looks nice. Happy Birthday Jennifer !

I frequently rearrange my posters but not the furniture, I just don't want to know what lurks behind my cupboard!

By the way, it was Delaware ...and I looked that up in a book just for the sake of pre-Google days, honest!

Jay said...

It was Delaware!

Jennifer Connelly freaking rocks!

The work station looks excellent. Everything a man needs, the computer, the printer, a mug with coffee, a webcam, and a naked female ass painting. Well done.

Looks good, Adam! You really did used to move things around pretty regularly. I'd like to in our place, but the size of rooms and placement of heating vents means nothing's moving.

Have a good weekend!

I knew it was Delaware! Hooray random, barely useful knowledge!

I get Jennifer Connelly and Jennifer Tilly mixed up sometimes.

Jay knows everything.

Hey stop by...you won! You winner, you!

Isabella Snow said...

Interestingly, both states you mention are not states but commonwealths! ;) Your new station looks awesome! Have fun! And if you think Jennifer is hot... her husband is so shaggable its not funny. Yummy!

Frank said...

Delaware...I remember because of their shitty state quarter.

Don't Momma Grrl: Thanks! =) I like it a lot.

Core: Deleware is kee-rect! You win nothing. :) And behind your cupboard? The malevolent Dust bunny. :-O O! The horror!

Jay-Jay: "Naked female ass painting." LOL

Missy-Poo: You have a nice weekend, as well. =)

Buns of Jen: You knew Deleware? You win nothing...nothing but my pure unadulterated esteem. Jennifer Connelly is much prettier than Tilly, in my opinion. Though Tilly still has the rack going for her. I actually passed Jennifer Tilly in the halls of one of the casinos in Vegas. She was there for the tournament--she's actually an accomplished poker player, apparently. She was dressed down in a formless top and jeans and was wearing sunglasses inside. (Rock on, Corey Hart.)

Real Live Lesbian Lynn: Thanks for the good news! =)

Izzy: I had no idea that both states were commonwealths! Thanks for the knowledge! My head is expanding as we speak! :-D (Not *that* head, silly.)

Frank: A wise man once said that a quarter cannot be shitty--it can only be a quarter. :-|
