This was a quick trip to Denton, to deliver our (not very) old couch to Max, to help install the new car stereo we gave him for Christmas to replace the old one that had been stolen when his car window was smashed about two years ago, and to run by Ikea to get the new wall system for our family room redo. Max had gotten a ride home the day before, and arrived at his apartment complex to see his car looking like this:
Seriously?!? Nothing was taken, because nothing (but some trash) was in it...I swear, he can't catch a break with this car. Which is a '95 Corolla. That he paid $500 for. Counting the last window, and this one, we've nearly put back that into the car in new flippin' windows!!!
Some of the glass on the ground. By the time we arrived, he had the car at the shop, getting the window replaced. So no radio installation. Now, the car was left there unattended for a month while he was home for Christmas break, but STILL. You do not want to know the words I had for the @#$% who did this.
In happier news, Max and Jeff brought the new couch into his apartment.
And Jeff promptly tested it out. Yep, still comfortable.

This picture is really for my mother (Hi Mom!) to show her the latest piece of art that I had framed - the one on the right (as well as the one in the middle) are watercolors that my Grandmother painted. We all got to choose some of her work after she died, and I spent the last few months finally getting everything matted and framed. Art for Christmas, woohoo!
Who needs four computer monitors? A computer science major, that's who...
After we finished up at Max's place, we headed over to Sam's, where he was busy building a quieter computer:
Showing me his anti-static wrist thingie (apparently a necessity when working with electronics).
I think he's reading the instruction manual!
Yep. Still the king of goofy faces.
These are two of my Grandmother's pictures that I had framed and matted for Sam - I'm really impressed at how nicely everything came out. It's hard to pick mat colors; feels like such a permanent decision! Luckily I had help at the framing place.
We went to Ikea Sunday morning, where we got what we needed and checked out in record time. I was amazed. We loaded up the car, had lunch all together at Smashburger (where I made the aforementioned regrettable decision to order the fried japaleños - so dumb! since having my gallbladder removed in 2009, I can't eat anything fried except for french fries...everything else makes me nauseated like crazy. last time I had fried crap was over two years ago - you'd think I'd learn, but no. argh, I frustrate myself!), and drove home. Jeff started assembling the wall system, with a supervisor:
"You following directionz?"
"Already bored. What dog doing?"
"Watching bright light on camera. Also waiting for cookie."
OK, thanks for bearing with me on such a random post. Have a good day, and remember, stay away from deep-fried foods - they're the devil. :(
