Well, that’s just fine. Great. Just great. On the one hand, I hit the 26 page mark of my script (At this rate, I should have a solid first draft by next week!). On the other hand, my oven is broken. Okay, to be fair, it’s not totally broken. The clock still works and it certainly beeps whenever I hit “cancel”. Beyond that, it simply refuses to bake, roast or broil.
As Akemi pointed out, an oven is one of those things you don’t realize how much you need until it’s gone. Sort of like a students loan or one of those corpse-burying shovels.
Not to worry though. I contacted Maytag and they’re sending someone over right away.
Poor Bubba. He hasn’t been his usual voracious self at meal time. We suspect one of two possibilities: 1. He suffering some sort of tooth infection like the one he had this same time last year. 2. He’s depressed because Akemi is making Jelly and Lulu all sorts of stylish outfits while he is left to make do with his natural fur coat. Apparently, the problem isn’t a matter of Akemi not wanting to make something nice for Bubba but more a case of Bubba being too damn fat for the patterns she found online. In a bid to cheer him up, she winged it and made him the following outfit:
Just in case though, we’ve booked him for a dental cleaning tomorrow morning. Send positive thoughts his way, please. He’s a nervous patient!
Okay. After lengthy consideration, I’ve decided to hold on to the house for the time being. Or at least until this summer. Or until I have to move for work.
ALSO – got my car inspected and am finally going to sell it!
