The Simpsons Feed

Homer Simpson? Yes, please!

I recently applied to take over an abandoned subreddit that was named r/HomerSimpson . I got notification today that I got my wish! I am not the mod for r/HomerSimpson   Yay!  I have made it into a Homer Simpson fan subreddit.  I hope to grow it.  It will be fun to have my own sub. :)

I finished that puzzle today.  Thank goodness I took a picture of it before I tried to flip it to preserve it.  I tried several different things and several different ways.  I finally think I'm going to be able to accomplish it. I go to flip and it falls apart.  Dammit!   Oh well, it was very pretty and I might work it again someday.  The pieces were very loose and that is why it fell apart so easily.  Here is the beauty before it fell into pieces.  I now have it in a Ziploc bag in the original box:

Yikes!

So I had to run to the store and swap out my out of date hot dogs and pick up a few things I needed.  They are calling for bad weather tomorrow.  Nothing major, just a little ice and rain in the morning.  It won't amount to anything, but that doesn't mean everyone in the city doesn't panic and rush to the grocery store.  I really should have waited to go tomorrow, but I just ran down and got what I needed. It wasn't too bad and I got through and came back home.  

I finished the puzzle I started yesterday. It's missing a piece. ~_~;  Seriously!  I am hoping I just dropped it and it will turn up.  It's so frustrating to have a brand new puzzle with missing pieces!  Ahh!

Now, for the fun stuff!  I have had a mouse pad since the 90's. It is my favorite mouse pad ever, but it had gotten old and worn out. I didn't toss it, but I put it aside.  I starting searching eBay for another one.  Well, I found one a few days ago.  They had it for $20 with $5 shipping.  I wanted it, but that was more than I wanted to pay.  They did have 'make an offer' so I figures, why not?  I send an offer of $15 so it would be $20 shipped.  The seller accepted and said if I paid he'd ship that day.  This was Saturday. I paid and he shipped.  It came today.  It's brand new still in the package and I love it.  What is the hollowed mouse pad you ask? Homer Simpson!  This was always my favorite mouse pad and I was very sad when mine got so dirty and worn out.  Now I have a new one to replace it. ^_^   I'll post the puzzle and my Homie below! :p

Slow, slow, slow

That is how that puzzle is going.  It's missing a lot of pieces. It's very upsetting.  I am still going to try to finish it.  I have all the pieces out on my white board now and I can see that there are several that are missing.  I'm hoping when it's all done that it won't be too bad, but so far, it's quite a lot!  

I meant to get so much stuff done today and I did nothing. I only worked on the puzzle. You can see my progress here:

Again, I did buy it with another old puzzle, so I'm hoping that any missing pieces are in the other box. I also hope the other puzzle is more complete!

Yesterday, I ran to the library and checked out The Simpsons movie and three books. I watched the movie last night and I know I've seen it before, but I remembered NONE of it.  The only thing that sparked a memory was Spider Pig and Bart's "Doodle". lol  After watching it, I kept wondering if I actually HAD seen it before.  I'm still not sure.  It is a twelve year old movie, so there is that.  Who knows, not me!


It's done!

What is done, you ask?  Well, my room.  I decided to change it around and I did that this afternoon.  It took longer than I planned, but it's done.  I am so sore from moving the heavy furniture.  Also, the dust under things was horrible.  I cleaned the heck out of everything.  Everything gets so dusty when the furniture stays in one place for too long.  I cleaned all that out and it was nuts.  I'm glad it's done.  I hate all that dust, but it's all cleaned up now. My arms and back are so sore.

  I got in my walk today.  It was sunny and not too cold.  It was in the mid 50's and I actually walked without my jacket.  It's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow, so no short sleeves!  The day after that, we are under a winter weather watch.  I think it's only supposed to be freezing rain. If that is the case, I'll miss another day walking.  Maybe I can convince myself to use the treadmill.  

I am almost done re-watching the Simpsons episodes.  I just watched one where Homer made me laugh out loud, literally.  He said, "Why would I want to go to a strip club? I'm married to a naked lady."  Homer is hilarious.  When I get through all the episodes, I am not sure what I'll watch next.  Maybe I'll watch LOST again.  


Simpsons fun

So, I'm working my way through all of the Simpson's episodes on Fox Now.  It's been fun.  I love the animation in the old shows. You know, when they were still hand drawn.  I think it looked better than it does now.  They had more personality.  Oh well, I still enjoy the current shows.  I mean, I've only watched the show since it was a short on the Tracy Ullman show. 

Today's walk was even colder than yesterday.  At least it wasn't windy like yesterday.  I don't think I could have taken that!  I just checked the weather for tomorrow and it's supposed to be pretty much what it was today.  I'll bundle up again and I'll be okay.

 


On a roll....

A Hawaiian roll would be good right now.  LOL No, not that kind of roll, unfortunately.  I'm on a roll today. I did my usual morning routine and then had breakfast.  I then got up and go dressed and headed out for my walk to the bank and to the grocery store.  I went to the bank and cashed my check.  I left there and went to Rose's and picked up a few things and then went to Food Lion and got one thing.  I headed back home then as I it was a dairy item and I didn't want to keep it out too long.

I got home and realized I had some time to relax a bit before my workouts.  I went on Hulu and saw that the newest Simpsons episode was up.  IT was the Treehouse of Horror one and I was happy to see it.  They usually air it a lot earlier in the month.  I watched that and then did my workouts.  It was a PIIT style workout and I was going, "Oh, this isn't so bad." On the first round.  Let's just say by the end, I was like.... I shouldn't have said that! LOL!  I was all sweaty and tired.  Luckily, I had a few minutes to cool down and relax before going to fix lunch!  I just had lunch actually.  It was good!

I know I usually post later in the day, well, except when I am at the beach! I wanted to get a blog post done while I was sitting down and relaxing for a bit.  I may take another walk tonight, I'm not sure yet.  We'll see! ^_^ On my earlier walk, I caught another Pikachu with Witch hat.  YAY! I will evolve him into a Raichu so I'll have one of each with a hat. :p


Early mornings at the beach!

So, I'm up.  I actually slept okay last night. Not great, but a lot better than the last two nights!  I had a hard time getting comfortable on the bed.  I hate beds away from home. I finally did get to sleep.  I got woken up a few times throughout the night, but luckily, I was able to go right back to sleep.  I know I was really tired!

I went out on the balcony to take a picture to share.  I'll share more in other posts as I'm more awake and with it. lol  I'm not sure what I'm doing today.  I might be walking to the Pavilion area, or I may save it for another day.  Since it's a holiday, I'll probably hold off on that! :P

Here is a picture I took of the beach this morning 20170904_094506

A gorgeous day here!  I will tell you how tired I was this morning.  OH! Back story! LOL  So, I find that the room has coffee makers.  Great!  I also see no coffee.  Umm... so, I go ask at the desk.  They don't provide coffee.  WHAT?????  If you know me, that won't do!  I look up groceries stores nearby on Google maps.  I see that there is a Food Lion one mile away.  My friend that drove all the way down here doesn't want to drive back out.  In fact, he was going to order us pizza for dinner!  So, I told him what I wanted and said I'd walk to the Food Lion.  I got there and got some of these Maxwell House things that are already in a filter.  I figured if there were any I didn't use, I'd just tear open the filters and put it in with my coffee at home.  I use a re-usable filter with my Keurig, so I just usually buy ground coffee at home.  So,, I walked two miles round trip just to get coffee! LOL!  The pizza arrived while I was on the way back, but it was still warm when I got here.  I crashed with it on the balcony and ate a few slices.  I then waited a bit ot have more. I wanted them all then, but I was so hot.

So, that is the backstory of the coffee! So, this morning, I get ready to make coffee!  I had filled it with water last night so that would be ready to go.  I turn it on and nothing happens.  Me:????  OH! I helps if you plug it in! :P  I do that and it starts going and I realize that it's clear.  Yes, I forgot to put the filter pack in. LOL  I had to turn it off, waiti until it finished a few drips and refill with water and put the filter in.  I finally have my coffee now so I should be okay for a while! :D Since I had to walk all that way to Food Lion to get coffee, I grabbed a bottle of that one touch latte while I was in there.  It makes it so yum!

I may post again tonight about my day.  We'll see.  I'm not even sure what I'm doing yet.  I want to get out my bullet journal and work on it a bit.  I'm not sure when my friend will wake up  He may want to go have breakfast.  We ate at a place on our last day here in June and it has a really good breakfast buffet..  It's Lenny's Country Kitchen.  I told him that we needed to go early so we could see Carl and Homer, too! :p
