Yes, it’s true! With great glee I report that late in the day yesterday there was a single green sprout in the watering can. Whooo! This morning it has been joined by a second sprout. I’ve been checking off and on all day, but so far only the two.

Today seems to be a much better day than yesterday, at least as far as crankitude goes. Whew! I was Ms. Bah Humbug and the drive to pick up TheMan did not help that any. For having a pretty highly rated academic institution loafing about within the city borders, this town has a damned high rate of moronitude. Ah well, that was yesterday, this is today and I feel 127% calmer.

Today is one large serving of moody with apathetic sauce and a side of cranky. Oh, would I like some fresh grated grumble to go with that? Yes, please!

Revenge Of The Weekend!

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Heh. Yes, it was the Smithee Weekend of Doom this past Saturday, and as promised I put up a blog with pics! Poor pics but hey, I deliver what I promise and I distinctly remember not making any such claims to be thinking of putting up good pics. Heh. I also put it up a tad late (*cough*postdated*cough) but it is there. Today’s entry is the meetier version of what happened or the traditional Weekend Review.

The All Smithee Review ‘04

Sunday, April 25th, 2004

This should have been up on Sunday but there was a picture problem. Mainly all the pics I took turned out blurry (except the unhealthy snacks pic, which was disturbingly clear). That’s OK, it was par for the course in terms of relying on technology. Ah well, whacha going to do right? So on with the Smithee Pic Blog Entry of Doom!

Frequently Asked Plork

Friday, April 23rd, 2004

Ahhh, meh. No Friday Five today. There is a note on the site from the 16th (which was last Friday! Hey!) that says the month of April will be busy which implies that there will be a sporadicness of Fives . Would it be snarky of me to say that I wonder how April will be any different from March and February? Yeah, it would I suppose. It means I’m going to have to have to fire up the old plork and actually think of either some questions or something else for today. Ugh!

Thinks for Thursday

Thursday, April 22nd, 2004

Hello there booniverse readers. Welcome to Thursday. I think. Right? Eh, what the hay, it feels like Thursday to me so I’m just going to go with it.

It Came From My Plork

Wednesday, April 21st, 2004

Heh, can you guess what all has been happening at the Q house? Smithees…SMITHEES…SMITHEES! Tis the season. Monday, I believe, we watched the whole show cover to cover…errr…well literally when it came to Worst Cover Copy but mostly figuratively for the rest. TheMan found a couple seconds he could shave off here and there, a couple glitches he’s going to have to fix and we cast our votes. So far the show clocks in at under two hours but just barely (1:50ish) but that’s the cover to cover play. Once you add an audience, balloting, and an MC it begins to bloat.

OK then, it’s Monday so it must be the weekend recap and here it is: Editing. Now y’all can go home and relax.

The Friday MINE!

Friday, April 16th, 2004

And a resounding BITE ME to the Friday Five this week because it’s the same batch of questions that were up last week, which were all about work and blah de blah. Y’all don’t need to listen (watch? Read? Hear?) to me screed about work. Again. Still. Nothing has changed, really, and work just goes. So I chose to not answer them then (and I was sick) and I choose not to answer them again this week. Hrrrumph.

Oh! BTW You Snack Food Junkies…Pooooooost Dated! Take a look at Saturday (which magically appeared Wednesday). I have another to quick write up and post date for Easter Sunday too. See? I care for you, my JSFR junkies.

The After Easter Review

Monday, April 12th, 2004

*snork* Welcome back from the unexpected booniverse hiatus. Y’all can thank the man that is my husband for some of it, work for some of it and my own basic laziness for most of it. See, TheMan got me an early Easter present of Digestive Track Distress Syndrome which had me laid up Thursday and Friday. Awwwww. On the plus side, no Puke! It’s a good day when there is no puke. On the down side…ew. But hey, it brings us to Monday wherein I can do another recap.
