I’ve been so busy these last few days it feels like my head is going to explode. We went out to the lot this morning for the “final” house inspection. For the most part it went well. We found a couple of things that need to be fixed but it should all be done by next week and we will be moving in the week after.
The wifey was dying for some Pho so we headed out to the Vietnamese restaurant down the block for lunch. After getting home, I made some calls to cancel our gas, electricity, and water, and to make appointments to get everything set up again at our new place when we move in. I also did some research for our phone lines and internet connection, but unfortunately, I’m still undecided as to what I want to do with it all. I’m leaning towards abandoning analog lines completely and just wiring the house up with fiber optics.
I finished reading “Twilight” tonight but to be honest, I didn’t dig it so much. It was paced well, the story was rather catchy, but the witting was just down right frustrating at times — especially near the end.
I’m probably going to read “The Wealth of Nations” next. I’ve been wanting to read it for a while now but just haven’t had the chance to get around to it. The timing is probably good I suppose; I’ve been reading a lot of modern stuff lately and I’m in the mood for something a bit heavier. I’m sure it will take forever given the pace I’m able to read these days, but oh well, what can you do right?
Oh, and the copy I have was borrowed from the wifey’s dad. It’s super old and I love it! I don’t know what it is about old books, but they just have this huge appeal to me. I also love books that are tattered, well traveled — passed along a lot. It’s kind of stupid, but I like the thought of books changing hands, different people reading it at different times in all different places. That’s probably why I can’t throw books away — it’s just my thing I guess.
So, I also managed to make another batch of Peanut Brittle tonight without fucking it up royally this time. It seems that beer was the key ingredient the whole time. In me that is, not in the peanut brittle.
Oh, and band rehearsal was crazy fun this week. We planned on practicing the set for our show next Friday but ended up making a new song instead. We were jamming a bit to warm up and the riff was so fun, we just kept playing it. As it stands now, we’re leaning towards cramming it into our upcoming show. So yeah, that should be — interesting.
