Horrorthon Countdown Contest Day Two! Real Life!
Sorry folks! I totally had this post page booted up ready to go all day and the day got away from me. Any moment* now Julie will emerge from putting Zack to bed and we'll go watch the final episode of Breaking Bad.
*Amazingly, Julie actually appeared at that exact moment adn now it's a couple of hours later. Whoah, Breaking Bad, huh? Good stuff.
So yeah, sorry. Sorry I started the countdown late and sorry I bailed on Day Two. I was looking at last year's Day Two and noticed I was announcing the winner of the Horrorthon Countdown Haiku Hump Day contest. What a great idea! I should've done that.
So in light of today and the weeks and the year that preceded it, I thought I'd catch you guys up on some of the seismic events that have been kicking around, that being 1) We bought a house and 2) Julie's 91-year-old grandfather lives with us and 3) Zack, who was diagnosed as a high-functioning autistic spectrum kid a year and a half ago, started kindergarten, which has illuminated a lot of ways he's not at the same level as the other kids. Which we're dealing with but it's a lot.
I don't want to start bitching, because there's a lot of good stuff in there too. Zack loves kindergarten and is still good at making friends, the house may need work but there's an awesome detached garage that I'm slooowly shaping into an awesome man cave (I keep saying I don't champion that term but it really can't be denied).
And what about you folks? How are ya? How are our new parents doing? Stan? Trev? You guys still tuning in? I feel like we've all got some Real Life kicking around this year, might be worthwhile to give it a nod.
That's if you even get this far... I'm gonna check out Spider-Man now and then it's time to HOLLA HOLLA HOLLA for day one. Fucking ONE. I got five dvds coming in the mail tomorrow...
