The new digs...

We're in! After a long weekend of moving heavy stuff up and down stairs, plus going out of town for a week, followed by another weekend of moving heavy stuff up and down stairs, we are FINALLY moved in! And I just love our new place. Lots of pretty landscaping. The clouds in the sky can appear a bit threatening though.

Hong Kong Garden...

Many of you may remember mention of a new bird feeder onto which I was going to install the "Disc of Madness" or something. That's still on, but now I have room on my new deck for a small rock garden. Anything to annoy the new neighbors, which apparently are these college-looking hill rats who have now drawn my ire.

I'm off to Dallas next week. I just need some sleep, as this week has kicked my ass.

This guy (we'll simply call him "Dave Freeman") has a date tonight, ON VALENTINE'S DAY. No one was supposed to know. He's a little nervous, but he's a great guy and could use some support! Go Dave!

Official Rumors: SPECIAL REPORT

Ceiling Fans: Terror From Above!

One of our readers (whom we'll refer to as simply "Jeff Mitchell") was comically injured last week when his ceiling fan suddenly came loose and crashed down on his lil' head. After a visit to the emergency room and some stitches, "Jeff Mitchell" is recovering nicely. When asked about the incident, Mitchell replied " hurt. a lot."

"We must learn from our mistakes, so that we can repeat them precisely."

• Yoga really kicked my ass yesterday. As it turns out, it may actually be helping my shoulder (which 'd' believes to be a rotator cuff issue).

• There was a bright red cardinal sitting on my car this morning, which is odd because I haven't known birds to land on anything other than branches. What made him want to land on a silver VW and chirp at me at the exact moment I needed to leave is a mystery.

• Still converting my new Tzeentch horde. Next on the table: marauder horsemen.

• I have to go to Dallas for 4 days, which is bad-timing but should be nice and boring.

• Finally got to see 'c' who was a bit tipsy but otherwise in good spirits. She had fallen off my radar for a while. It's good to have her back on.

• My sister's birthday is fast-approaching, and I found the PERFECT card for my little princess. Not sure what to get her, though.

• 1 week until the new apartment!

Steel resolve...

Official Rumors would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Pittsburgh Steelers on making it to Super Bowl XL. This is the Memphis Gateway bridge, which I will be throwing myself off of should they lose to the Seahawks.

Friday puppies...

As promised, here is your Friday puppy.

The sky's gone out...

So I've noticed:

• I had a dream last night that I went fishing with my grandfather. I've got to stop watching "Six Feet Under" before bed. And I need to learn how to gut and clean fish, because it was rather embarrassing that I didn't know how to do that in my dream.

• We're coming up on the anniversary of when April died. I remember going through that whole "why do bad things happen to good people/what is god's deal" phase. Again, time to lay off the "Six Feet Under."

• Started watching "Carnivale." If I could make an HBO series, it would be like that. Only better.

• Remember this guy?

His Name is Markian, and if anyone has seen him, please let me know. He slipped out the door a few months ago, and despite putting some porn and diet dr. pepper on my doorstep, he hasn't come back. Please call with any information. Reward standing by.

• Happy Birthday, "A"

• With regards to our previous post "Bird Feeder" please replace the words "Disc of Madness" with "Glorious Flames of Alteration."

• The building I work in is cursed. I can't go into any details, but I swear it must be. It does things to people. Or maybe it's just the company in general. There were 2 reports of people "losing their fucking minds" this week. Really.

• Official Rumors is looking at redesigning the look and feel of this blog, and maybe even making downloadable podcasts on iTunes. Or would you rather have a T-shirt?

That's all for this post.

"Now it's dark..."
