Nim's random assortment of "huh."


iPhoto guilt trip

So I just lost a good hour deleting a bunch of photos from iPhoto, right, and at the end of it, after agonizing over which memories to keep and which are bad juju, I press delete and iPhoto goes “are you sure?” And I’m like yes *press* and it comes back, like a rebuttal, and says straight to my feels “these may be the only copies of these photos”.


Don’t enable my hoarding, iPhoto.

Simplicity challenge: accepted

Super proud of myself. I took a simplicity challenge for October, but I didn’t start until the 10th. I had to play some catch up (you get rid of one thine on the first of the month, two on the second, etc) and piled up 55 things on the 10th. I got 11 things pulled together yesterday, and today I was doing some put-away tasks and got days 12 and 13 squared away, too! Pretty psyched.

Here are days…

Anyone wanna join me in a simplicity challenge?

Anyone wanna join me in a simplicity challenge?

First of all, I’m addicted to Pinterest. We all know this, I think. I know this. MBF knows this. End of list. Anyway, I saw this blog “DoMoreWithLess” and I’m loving it. She posted a bunch of links recently, one of which was to a simplicity game. Ready?

Get rid of one thing on the 1st of the month. Two things on the 2nd. Three on the 3rd. And so on.

So today is October 10. I think I’m going to…

Back to WoW, baby!

And it’s the best $25 birthday gift evar.

And due to my impeccable timing, my birthday re-entry to WoW included a near instant level (to 86), two free crafting achievements, and an in-game concert. Oh, then I got nimmy all smashed and tried to go fishing. I love birthdays.

Solar powerful!

I turned my solar on last night so today is my first day to generate my own electricity! Ok, ok. It’s now officially Fall. It took since April or May to get it installed and inspected and going. But luckily, the sun shines all year! Also: Texas.

So here we go! Happily, since it’s so nice out now, maybe I won’t even use as much as the system is tuned to produce. With all the rebates in Austin,…

Stumbled upon this while cleaning up my computer. Well, we wound up flip-flopping (hiked miles 1506.5 - 767.2 from north to south, then got a ride back up to 1506.5 where we started north again) and we beat this by about 3 weeks. Not bad.

I’ve been looking for this!! Yay perfect.

Desk accomplished!

After I wrote my rant the other night, I got of my chocolate-loving ass and cleaned using unfuckyourhabitat’s 20-10 rule. Clean 20, rest 10. It. Effing. Worked.

Ok, admittedly I had to hide a few hundred things in the garage. Things that I need to “go through” or “sort” or “file”. Know what? That stuff kept me from getting to my desk for years. When I’m ready to sort for 20 minutes, I’ll go grab…

Proof to fuel my hatred of clothing

I was gonna fix the title to say “clothing retailers”, but no, I think I’m to the point of hating all clothes and just being a nudist or wearing rags. I’m good with either at this point. But anyway.

I’m invited to two more weddings this year, which is fantastic and to which I look forward, no question. But of course, what to wear? So long story short, I hate most “normal” dresses and shopping in…

Supernatural obsession

Ok, it’s a little embarrassing to admit, but thanks to every season being available on Netflix, I’m now quite obsessed with Supernatural. It doesn’t help that people have spotted one of the stars here in  my hometown. Following their Twitter accounts isn’t making things better, either. Am I a stalker? I think I might be a stalker.

Legal and psychological technicalities aside, I just really like…
