aaaahahaha so this is my setup now. That’s my broken-screen laptop on the back corner, it is now a desktop pc. Stole one of Vinny’s monitors (the crappy one - cant even get a decent resolution on it), bought a swishy keyboard that I cant get used to, and my swishy razer mouse. Oh, and Vinny’s gaming mousemat trololol. Also got a cooling pad for under the laptop in the hope that maybe I can start gaming again now that I dont have to prop the screen up… It will probably still overheat and die.
I did not miss using a desktop PC.
I think I’m making myself much more ill by giving up on the bedrest which really really sucks because I was genuinely enjoying and looking forward to doing things :(
Tesco was fun, we spent way too much money because they had a sale on all these marvel/gamer/nerdy tshirts and Vinny fell in love and then because I spent so much on Harvest Moon games he got a telescope too and omfg. Also bubblegum jellybelly scented candles are mine, finally.
We got a taxi back because we missed the bus home and didn’t want to wait in the cold for an hour for the next one with all these bags of shopping. Taxi’s will forever remind me of Murakami now.
So anyway, I think I will spend tomorrow resting again because I am very ill again and I am just so so sick of it.
omfg so vinny got another throat infection but we thought it was just tonsillitus and i dont have tonsils so i wasn’t worried about catching it but it turns out its just another nasty throat infection that lasts like 3 weeks and now i have it too!!!!
the hallway is still only half painted and there’s no food in the house and this is literally the worst thing ever
also there;s a burglar alarm going off next door and i keep hearing banging noises and its really windy and im super scared idk
We’re taking a day off painting today because vinny is super ill and i have weird ass muscle spasms going on from trying to reach in awkward places. the paint is mostly dry now so the cats can have a day off from hiding out in the spare bedroom :3 i actually went to go get them and rosie and luna had already broken out! i have no idea.
vinny’s watching doctor who now, and i’m just gonna catch up on my youtube subscriptions bc i can’t even stand to be in the same room as that show, egh.
i really can’t wait for this whole paint thing to be finished. the house is in a fucking state, various bits of furniture all over the place, laundry not done because there’s nowhere to dry it, kitchen is barely fit to cook in because it’s full of furniture and various painting items. it’s gonna look so great when it’s done but skjdkaldjldjsa;kjdsa god. I have 17 more banister poles to paint, which took about 4 hours yesterday, except these ones are right against the wall so that’s going to be insanely fun. also got all the other bits to do that we can’t even reach, and it’s on a staircase so we can’t use a ladder. no idea???? at least all the orange is done now and we can probably get it all done tomorrow. the stuff we already did even needs another coat in places BLAHHH. genuinely contemplating hiring someone to finish the job because it makes me wanna blow my brains out. yesterday was only bearable because i pulled out the harry potter audio books. oh well, i’ll worry about this tomorrow. gonna go into town and get the new superior spiderman comic book, pick up more banister paint and give it one final push to finish it. being an adult sucks.
Top picture is today, bottom picture is yesterday. Paint has now dried, and we’ve started painting the banisters brown :)
I will be so fucking glad when this is all done |:
