Exciting updates

Or not.

Since I don't have much else to talk about right now, I'm going to talk about the dirty skivvies and the mattress. Wow, this is going to be a really strange post. Best if you have a hard drink.

Anyways, after about 2 days of the white adult male skivvies getting run over by cars in the road, they crept closer and closer to the neighbor's house across the street. Well, on Tuesday my dad, Ryan and I went to play golf. They were there. When we came back, they were gone.

It dawned on me though... our garbage cans are sitting at the end of our driveway...... yep. Someone had put the soiled underwear into our garbage can. Which is fine, we didn't have to handle it then... but what did they use to pick them up and where did they put it afterwards?!?

They've gone now. Abolished. Finito. Adios. Au Revoir and hopefully not A Bientot.

Moving on. The Mattress Update. Well, here's the dealie-o. Sometime back in October or November I bought this 3 inch mattress topper. It was memory foam.

From the first night it wasn't so comfortable, but I wanted to give it a chance. And we've slept with it for a good 6 or 7 months. The other day, while we were trying to figure out what to do, I decided it's high time to take that stuff off. I guess since I bought it, I just wanted it to work. However, it was really making my back and left knee ache. (because I typically sleep on my left side.)

So we took it off and now things are much better. So hopefully our mattress will be good for awhile longer now. (That's a great sentence, doncha think?) One side is still broken though, but Ryan doesn't mind sleeping on it.

However, I did want to say we went to our local ARC (a sort of Goodwill-like thrift store) and they sell new mattresses there. The full plush was $215 and the full pillowtop was $240. So at least now we know where we should go if we ever do decide to get a new bed when we can't afford much.

Ugh, that egg stuff just soaks in sweat, grime, and dead skin. Then they break down. Icky!

I am seriously curious if you are always completely naked when you blog. That is an exciting thought! So what is the deal with the Shannon plane? Is that really painted on somebody's pivate jet? Kind of reminds me of Forrest Gump's fleet of boats all named the Jen-nay!

So one of these days you are going to make it down to Cheyenne again. (Didn't you say you like Good Friends Chinese place on Lincolnway?) I don't want to miss that day. Let me know the next time you are coming, so I can meet you and show you around the town!

But I like sweat, grime, dead skin and don't forget the dust mites!!


LOL... ok, I will seriously come clean. Yes, I will blog naked when I can. That's after my parents go to bed. Or if they're on vacation. They were just gone and... maybe TMI... but I had 5 days of pure nekkidness of running around the house. I guess I am a closet nudist. :-) Don't know why, I just am.

I think that plane belongs to a fleet from an Irish airline. Shoot. Maybe I can find the picture again.

I do have to make it up to Wyoming again. Definitely. I never did get any Chinese food when we were up there in December. It's scary to try new places until you know the local opinion about it.
I'll have to let you know for sure!! Maybe soon Ryan and I will trek up there.
