One time, one of LM's friends was giving me crap for not making gravy, and I was all like "GRAVY IS BLOOD SAUCE!" and he was all like, "OMG! I never thought of it like that. You have RUINED GRAVY FOR ME FOREVER."

So my petty accomplishment is that I once ruined gravy for an apple-cheeked young man from Kansas. Ha HA!

I changed out my garbage disposal without screwing anything up.

Did y'all know you actually have to run electrical wiring right into those things?

I didn't.

They should just plug into an outlet under the kitchen sink, but no, they want me to get all James Bond on it...totally beyond my pay grade.

I even sent my Dad pictures because he would never have believed me.

Turns out he's really proud of me for taking the initiative and only recommended I turn off the breaker next time I do something like that.

Pulling off DIY with electrical elements is something to be legitimately proud of. :taser:

Shea, the Alabama factor makes your accomplishment more than petty, too. I'm surprised there's another boy in the class.
It is petty on my part, it's significant on her part. It makes me happy near enough to start crying, even.

Lady Shea, I think that while your action might be petty, it's also pretty.
Pretty brave.

Speaking of garbage disposals, I successfully avoided replacing mine. The reset button wasn't doing anything, but when I started to unpack the new one, I saw the unjammer wrench thingie. Oh yeah, I thought to myself, now I remember what this thing is for. I gave it a whirl, and voila! Returned that puppy unused and got my hundert bucks back.

I took three flights in the company of my sister and twelve-year-old nephew on Saturday and I did not kill him. Can't guarantee the streak would have continued had they flown back with me, though.

I just finished a second assignment while living in a tent 700km from my family. Now I have three and a half days to do a third.

Residential school for my uni thingy again. For the last time though. I graduate in eight weeks or so.

It's tough this time because I'm away for two weeks. The old record was ten days. Poor Shine isn't dealing with it well. She wrote me a lovely letter and yesterday on the phone she begged me to come home. :(

On the upsde it does give me a lot of uninterrupted studying time. If you call caravans and tents being put up and down, children playing, cars coming and going uninterrupted.

I wonder if that works with soft-boiled eggs too...

Also, oh I have to come up with some accomplishments!

I... went to bed before 1am and woke up before 10:30am almost every day the past week (compared to my schedule at other times this year which was more like go to bed at 6am and sleep til 2pm)




And I just did 20 Kegels.

How's that for petty? :pleased:

Yeah, that's what he would do, if he was one of the few boy ballet dancers who doesn't turn out gay.

But what are the chances of that?
