Must Have.

Typical home decor is just not my style. The nerdier the better in my opinion. I like a lot of vintage as well. A house I live in is never going to make any sense. lol But oh well. I like what I like. Since my computer has decided that it doesn't want me playing any video games at the moment, I have been looking for stuff I think would make for epic house decor.

I think zombies are awesome. Obviously.
In the not so distant future, I want a quarter sleeve on my right upper arm -- a zombie graveyard scene complete with dark sky and clouds. But for now, I must settle on other ways to get my zombie fix.
Looking around on Etsy I stumbled across this little guy. How fucking cool is that? The seller has a few other zombie garden items as well. This one happens to be my favorite though.

ThinkGeek has a lot of hella cool items. I spend entirely too much time on that site. Whenever it has its random grab bag t-shirts for 5 bucks I get excited. Although, last time, I only got one cool one. A Rule # 2 Double Tap one from Zombieland. 
I want to get this for the spawns bathroom but it keeps going out of stock. My whole thought process was that they could learn parts of the periodic table while doin' their business. lawl. Although, I know in reality it isn't going to happen. Who knows though right? My girl spawn is quite the toilet reader like her mama. /shrug.

And these bathroom towels are just uber.

Another thing I really loved from ThinkGeek was the doormat that read "You've read my doormat. That is enough social interaction for one day." But it has since disappeared from the website. :[ There are a few other cool ones on the site, but none as epic as the social interaction one.

I think about organization way to much to be as un-organized as I am. It really doesn't make any sense. That being said -- Ikea completely has my attention lately. Since the visit to Indiana and our trip to Ikea, I have made a habit out of toilet reading the Ikea 2012 magazine. Well, a little less reading, a little more dog-earing all the stuff I want.

The idea of the following housing my vintage pyrex, makes me a little too giddy.

That is all for an update...I have SWtOR to play and a half hour of sleep to try and squeeze in before the spawn wake up. /sigh.

I cannot wait for these to come in the mail. I found them while browsing this awesome blog. Tracked them down from Target only to find they were on clearance for 12.99. Score.


I am a traitor.

After much thought, mind-changing, and blatant hell-no I'm not doing it, I finally caved and started playing Star Wars the Old Republic. I logged in to play WoW tonight and it was just utterly boring.  I took the portal to Deepholm, mounted up on one of my trusty steeds, flew across the purple/pink/rocky awesomeness, arrived to check to see if Pebble was up for my rescue, and logged out. I didn't even have the patience to go do anything else. It is no fun when all my Guildies and Ex-Guildies are not on to give me shit. So, it is time for a break. Achievements will remain locked. Matt will hold his position as Number 1 for Greater Than Me for the time being. /glare.  I am really just waiting for Diablo 3 to be released anyways and then it is on. So, I am now leveling two characters in SWtOR: A Jedi Consular and a Sith Inquisitor -- which are pretty much the same thing -- only different factions and different but same spells that make things go boom.

So for now, my traitor ass will have to be content playing a game that really doesn't interest me that much but I am sure I will get sucked into the story line like the vast number of other nerds out there that just cannot stop playing it even though they complain non stop about how much they hate it. ;]

Today, I felt like a badass.
Somehow, the mailbox got knocked over again -- it was laying on the side of the road when I went to pick up the spawn from school today. It is quite essential that I am able to get mail promptly over the next few weeks. I was running late, so I just let it go and when I got back home I decided I was going to be a badass and fix it. So picture me, out on the side of the road wearing a dress and hammering rods [god that could be taken so out of context] in the ground and screwing clamps to hold it in place. I was successful. That thing is so not going anywhere for a while.  It may, or may not, look a little ghetto-fab but considering the fact that I live in rural NC -- I don't think anyone will notice.

There was so much fog this morning...
It was rather beautiful.

I love Chicken Marsala.

Whenever I head over to Olive Garden it is the one thing I have to have. I failed to get it whenever we went to Olive Garden on the trip back to Indiana. Instead, I got the following...
It was effin' disgusting. And I regret not getting Chicken Marsala.

I think I am going to attempt to make some Chicken Marsala.
But, I might just make Tostadas.

Hummus Recipe to Try.

1 can chick peas
2tbsp tahini
1tsp lemon juice
2tbsp crushed garlic

Blend, food process, or just mash it up really good with a fork, depending on what consistency you want. You can add whatever spices you like. I like some cayenne peppers, dill, or just a ton of extra garlic. You can sub white beans or lentils instead of chick peas too for different tastes. WAY cheaper than store-bought!
