You know, after having your own place for approximately 80-million years (<– exaggeration), you kind of forget how nice it is not to be in someone else’s house, no matter how temporary the situation is – even your own parents. Let’s just say that when the hubby became gainfully employed once again, I had dreams of getting way more done – only now I get a whole different set of interruptions.
I don’t mean to sound like a broken record, but I literally haven’t had time to do more than post a few random Facebook status updates and whip out a few blog posts – anything computer time beyond that is an impossibility. For now.
But there is a light at the end of the tunnel – our house is finally on the market, so we’re hoping that we can be moved and settled by Christmas – that would be the best Christmas present ever. Well, OK, next best – because I don’t want the hubby to think he doesn’t have to get me anything this year if we get all moved in to the new house and all. Presents are always good.
I don’t know about you, but lately the spammers seem to be coming out enforce. Is it perhaps ‘the season of spammers’ or something? Wonder if they have their own carols – we know they already have their own decorations by way of plastering their spammy-ness all over the comment section. Luckily mine get siphoned out by way of Askimet, but holy moly those spammy bots are persistent!
I saw there were 35 messages in my siphoned spam folder, and not 10 minutes later, there were close to 300! Usually I’ll go through them to make sure an important one doesn’t get siphoned out, but this time I just deleted all of them with one fell swoop. I might have exclaimed “Hi-YAH!” when I did. Just sayin’.
Speaking of spammy people… Remember I posted this picture last week about our storage unit and the stuff stored in it (you know, like 95% +/- of all our earthly possessions)?
Yeah, that one. I had to laugh when I saw this spam comment:
“My garage looks like your picture. I was thinking of getting a storage unit to help de-clutter everything. Have you ever thought of getting one?”
Well DUH, dude. It is a storage unit. The comment came from a self-storage place, naturally. Maybe they need reading glasses? Of course now I’ll probably get spammed by a glasses store.
In other news… I saw this on Facebook last week, and while it’s genius as a basic idea, I still can’t get over the actual ‘ewwww’ factor:
It’s been around for a few years – a bathmat made primarily from moss (that gets watered when you step out of the shower). I wonder if it ever went into production or if anyone has purchased one? Inquiring minds want to know. Wouldn’t be something I’d ever have in my bathroom, thankyouverymuch.
Did you hear? My girl, Kelly Clarkson got married this weekend:
She looks gorgeous and happy – seems like so long ago when she was the very first American Idol winner, doesn’t it?
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, link up and join in the fun, everyone is welcome – random or not. Be sure to visit your fellow randomizers so they don’t feel so lonely.
Keeping the random alive – feel free to snag a badge and play along – one for my wino friends:

More Tuesday hops – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – since I was robbed of my GFC followers when the cads at Google decided to boycott non-Blogger blogs. The Tuesday hops seems to have diminished – if you have one let me know and I’ll add you here, too!
