I’m wearing the draw string undies today. I didn’t know if I’d like them much at first, but they’re really extremely comfortable. They’re Amanda’s favorite too.

I feel like I’m finally starting to catch up a little at work again. It was hectic and busy and Scott had to help out to start getting caught up, but at least I’m seeing the light.

I had yet another meeting this morning. This time it was with an attorney client of ours downtown. I love going downtown. I always wish I had my camera with me when I go there. Today I was driving past a church and was able to look through one window and out another, stained glass one.

A few minutes after I got back I got a call from my friend Ben Lambeth. He asked if I’d like to meet him at PT’s for lunch. I needed a little stress relief so I took him up on it. It was nice to get away for a minute or twenty.

After I got back home I was getting some leftover Smarties from the kitchen when I heard the fridge making funny noises again. I found a larger piece of plastic hitting the back of the fan, so I pulled that out and, yet again, everything was fine.

I worked pretty hardcore the rest of the day and got quite a bit done. It felt pretty good at the end of the day. Amanda brought home some salad and rotisserie chicken breast. It was pretty good stuff.
A little afterwards I was in the bathroom when Mooo!, as she often does, started pawing incessantly at the door. I let her in turned on the sink for her (she likes to drink running water). When she was done she started playing with a hair tie. She was going nuts all around the little bathroom with that thing!

img_6705.jpgAmanda and I are watching Heroes right now. There’s one thing I thought was particularly cool in this most recent episode. At one point two people are talking through a screen door. The screen created a sort of halftone pattern on their faces. That’s something a lot of comics used to (and some still) do to create a sense of shading. I’ve sort of created something like it in this picture of my dad, Jerry Dotsey, and my nephew, Jackson Sawyer. Anyway, I don’t know if I was just reading what I wanted out of the image or if it was a wink to comic book geeks, but I like to think it was the latter.

Amanda didn’t gain any points with me tonight. First I was watching South Park and I paused it because she was talking a bunch. Then she coddled me, which involves her rubbing my face and saying “coddle, coddle” to mess with me (because once a long time ago I told her I hated being coddled). Then she was messing with the remote control and turned off the TV, so I lost my place in South Park, then she accidentally hit my face with the controller while she was tossing it away. Geez Amanda!

Just a few minutes ago Michael came in and told me that he’d broken the handle while flushing the toilet. He said he just pushed it as usual and the plastic thing connecting the handle to the flushing thing just broke. I rugged up some floss and tied it to the handle so that you can pull the handle to flush the toilet. I don’t know if we can just find another handle with the plastic part on it or what.
