I am looking forward to the new "Continuity" project/integration coming in OS 10.10 and iOS 8

I am also watching a movie from 9 years ago with Goop Mistress Paltrow and a 24 year old Gyllenhaal.

I went grocery shopping today.  Oh, and got gas at $3.89/gallon.  It keeps going up and down in price and I'm frankly sick of it.

I was thinking about this today . A few years ago people where outraged at gas prices and demanding to know why it had gone up so much ... we got used to high price and not much is said anymore . I wonder now how long until $4.85 will be the new high and how long will it take for us to forget this time .

I believe people got sick of hearing about how much profit the oil companies were/are making on the backs of everyone having to fill up their tank.  I've heard things about it, why it's so high in this area of the country, but I've written that off to fluff. 

I remember when gas was over $4, and was so happy when it came down to $3-something.  But now, it's ridiculous.  We have to live frugally so these damn oil companies need to quit gouging us.

Alexander Skarsgard, proportioned muscle on the tall lanky frame.
Chris Evans as a blond, though pretty much any hair color works for him. :-)

Kristen Bell, for the strong type.
Dianna Agron, for the classic blond vulnerable b!tch character she plays well.

Nope, he cant act, and Pettyfer is a natural blonde I thought....or was it the other way around....I'll have to check either way i'll take him! They're both just so damn gorgeous, I would say Matt Bomer however I cant picture him blonde, but as a brunette, DAMN, he's so hot. *sigh* back to drooling at tumblr pics of them all.

My partner had lunch with a friend yesterday and this friend told my partner she and her husband suspect I have an alcohol problem. They are concerned because I tell them I don't drink alcohol. My partner told her that I've never drank alcohol and that I don't like the taste. She said that was also suspicious because there are alcoholic drinks that where you can't taste the alcohol, therefore I wasn't being honest about my reason for not drinking. She also asked my partner "does he treat you well?" She was completely serious about this.

Of course the two of them discussed my alcohol problem while polishing off martinis and two bottles of wine. Psychological projection?

I've been working feverishly to finish my new place.  The master bedroom was finished yesterday.  Everything painted from the ceiling down.  Even painted the subfloor with a sealer.  The master bathroom has about one good day of work and it'll be done.

Which reminds of something that many of you can answer.  I've decided to buy new bedroom furniture.  My matress set is close to its 8 year mark so it needs replaced.  I've always preferred a queen size (insert jokes now).  I'm considering downsizing to a double.  I'm worried it'll be too small especially when I'm lucky enough to share it.  Are there any couples here who comfortably use a double?

It depends on your and your potential lover's sleeping style.
I did a double with a bf and loved it for years but if you have the space and already have the queen bedclothes, just get a queen again.
Now I have a double and a twin and I more often sleep in the twin, don't even know why....

Queen, at a minimum.  Spent a few years with Sid in a double.  Cuddling is fine and can be done in any size bed, but he generates so much fucking heat when he sleeps -- I need space between us.  Go with a California King!

Double is the same as what's called a "full size" mattress and it's what my parents have always used. Neither of them are overweight. They also have this size in the guest room so I sleep in it when I visit, and I actually owned one previous to my current queen size because I had an antique spindle bed and that was the size of it. But I will say for two men it's not suitable which I discovered with my last partner. It's totally sufficient for a single person though.

I almost ordered a complete set until something my sister said to me kicked in.  She wondered why I need new furniture at this time as my current set is good enough for a little longer considering what else I still need to buy. 

I already have new appliances except for a stove.  I really didn't see the immediate need for one and said I'd just get one down the road.  She said it looks ridiculous not having one. :(  I figured I could just buy a microwave for what little cooking I do. 

I did a test last night that indicated I'll remain with a larger set.  I slept in mom's guest room part of the night.  It has a double and will not suit me long term.  I ended up returning to my queen. 

I also broke down and had cable installed.  They tried their damnest to convince me on expensive packages.  I chose the starter package that runs $19.99 a month.  All I have to do is figure out how to watch Bravo and I'll be good.

I pretty much enjoy anything Bravo as I don't have to actively watch and pay attention.  I can do other things and tune in occasionally.  I'm too hyper to actually sit glued to a tv for long periods of time.


On a side note, I rec'd a call from a friend a little while ago asking if I'd help him carry in his new stove.  The old one looks just fine and I asked why they needed a new one.  He said his wife complains that it doesn't bake cakes correctly.  I guess she's been bitching for 3 years about it.  I'll bet he didn't level it....lazy bastard.  Anyways, he gave it to me.  Let's see...the last time I baked a cake was like never. 

Anyhoo, you all have a great day.  Getting ready to take Joshie to the Airport.  He has to be back in LA tonight.  We didn't get to spend much quality time together. :(

I don't have to actively watch and pay attention.  I can do other things and tune in occasionally.  I'm too hyper to actually sit glued to a tv for long periods of time.
ake Joshie to the Airport.  He has to be back in LA tonight.  We didn't get to spend much quality time together. :(
This is mostly how I "watch" tv.  I'll sit and closely watch very few shows... Good looking shows are worth watching. Certain shows are kind of complex or not too talky, so you have to watch them if you want to follow.
I will watch new shows a few episodes to get the gist then I don't have to really watch them anymore just hear them and glance once and awhile.

I already have new appliances except for a stove.  I really didn't see the immediate need for one and said I'd just get one down the road.  She said it looks ridiculous not having one. :(  I figured I could just buy a microwave for what little cooking I do. 
Don't you need one for frying and boiling water, at least?
Get a stove - start baking.  Bake potatoes, chicken, meatloaf, brownies, etc.

Look in your frozen vegetable aisle.
I can make very quick meals based on frozen mixed vegetables.
They have all kinds now.  They have frozen ratatouille veges, chinese veges, minestrone veges, old fashioned winter mixed, and summer mixed, etc etc.

Here they have this great one that is very finely chopped veges including onions.  You can sautee them and add vegetable soup.

You can sauté the chinese veges and eat with rice and tofu.  Get some miso.  Saute veges and then add water and miso for very quick soup. 

Check the fresh chilled soups.  Here in switzerland they import the industrial, but fresh, soups from Spain - it comes in a quart container.  There are several varieties of gazpacho and its pretty damned good and no effort.  You can eat that with toasted bread and cheese, or a grilled cheese.

If you don't know, learn how to make hard boiled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are very nutritious and the new thinking is that this kind of egg is not a cholesterol risk.  You can put them in gazpacho.  Make sandwiches with different spreads.  Bread you like, some kind of savoury spread and sliced boiled eggs. Maybe real tomatoes in the summer. Or some tasty greens like cilantro or arugula.   Its pretty easy.  Also eggs are cheap and quality protein for the money.

I had a ham sandwich tonight and some strawberries and kiwi for dessert.  Brian had firefighter duties.

Then, I watched the Space Station fly over.  It was especially bright tonight.  I use an app called ISS Detector.  The Space Station now has LIVE feeds of new HD cameras on USSTREAM.  So, I was able to see what they were seeing as I was watching them.  The cameras don't pick up city lights well, but there was still enough sun out.  It flew by about 50 minutes ago and it is now almost over Jan in New Zealand.  Swinging under Australia now.  It is amazing when we see it here in Louisville, it can be well over Canada or over the Atlantic, by the time it goes out of view.

So many threads become about food.   :o  I had mac and cheese twice yesterday and a protein bar.  total cost for the day: $2.79

Have to be at work at 4:00 am this morning.  Love these shifts where I can have an afterwork cocktail by noon and not feel like a total lush. 

@Zach, when I was forced to move back home, it was difficult trying to prepare adequate meals that both mother and I could eat.  For the most part, we ate separately.  She slowing came around to eating some of what I'd fix.  What's the old saying?  Just because your dad jumps off a cliff, do you have to follow?

you geek.  ;) Someone once described an app to me, it tells you what sky you point the phone at; identifies stars, planets, all the m objects. That would cool. I used to go to amateur astronomy star parties as a kid, I lived near a state park where a local university had a telescope. Built a cardboard tube schmidt cassegrain. Good times. Now I do good to somewhat aware of the moon.
