And then, proving once again that stupidity has no limits, are these morons that are bitching because they think Steven Spielberg hunted and killed a Triceratops. Never mind that it’s 1) A fake from the set of Jurassic Park and 2) BEEN FUCKING EXTINCT FOR 65 MILLION YEARS.

Yes I’m sure a bunch of those responses are fakes of people pretending to do the whole hunter shaming thing, but there are people dumb enough to not be faking. I’m thinking these two are the latter.

One last renovation picture. The living room just looks so much more polished with the new doors, moldings, baseboards, fireplace tile, and decor

A little bit more of our renovation transformation.  The gray and red is the original from when we bought the place. These pictures just cover the bedroom area, but the reno took place everywhere.

  • We painted everything in the beige color
  • Replaced all light switches and outlets with newer rocker style
  • Replaced the vent covers to go back to white
  • Replaced the old, dirty/yellowing door bell, smoke detector, and thermostat
  • Added baseboards (it looked awful and unfinished with the wall just touching the rug)
  • Replaced the door frame molding
  • Replace all doors with the arch paneled doors
  • Created a linen closet out of the niche where the dresser was. It was a tight fit and once the baseboards went in, the dresser no longer fit, so we needed to do something with the space.
  • Added a big-ass TV to the bedroom. Since we can’t put a bigger one in the living room, may as well make use of the empty and otherwise useless wall in the bedroom, right?
  • Replaced out the ceiling fans throughout, one with a regular light/chandelier
  • Had a ceiling fan added to the living room ceiling above my desk
  • Replaced all the furniture
  • Replaced the lights over the bed
  • Tiled the fireplace (pic previously posted)

Most of the stuff I didn’t do, had to defer to a contractor friend. But it’s looking awesome in here now. Can’t wait til we can do the kitchen and bathroom, but those are a ways off.

Shhhhhhhhhhh!

Shhhhhhhhhhh!

Random Boredom Bullets

  • I’m really bored and not even remotely tired
  • I’m not in the mood to do any work though, not after the week I’ve had
  • There’s nothing on TV and I can’t tell if I feel like watching some episodes of something
  • We’re having a small dinner party tomorrow night. I’m smoking a prime rib. I haven’t done one (or anything on the smoker, really) for a while and I’m itching to do it. I just seasoned it up for tomorrow afternoon
  • Our condo’s renovations are done for the time being, save for the closet door. Home Depot took 2 weeks longer than they said to get it to us, then they sent the wrong size. Now the new one one be in for a couple of weeks. But everything else looks awesome. Now I want to rip the kitchen out. We can’t afford it any time soon, so I’ll just have to obsess
  • We’re going to spend about 10 days at the condo soon
  • My dog is a dork
  • So is my wife
  • The cyst I had on my wrist that’s been gone for months may be coming back. Time to start smashing it against the desk to break it up again
  • I’m still bored
