Two things of import happened today:

1. I was attacked by an ironing board. Twice. Mikey could vouch for me on this. First it tried to kill my while I was bringing a load of clothes up from the basement. Later it was waiting for me at the door when I came out of the bathroom. I wish I could say more, but the experience was just too traumatic.

2. Offbeat sang at East Towne Mall. I mentioned it some time ago on this journal, but I didn't encourage you to go because it was a pay-to-shop thing. Anyway, the performance was much better than the last time we sang at the mall, but (unlike last time) nobody payed attention to us except for mall employees. The Santa appreciated us (and also mentioned really liking the SHS Madrigal Singers (of which 80% of us (4/5) are alumnus. Go us.)), as did the giftwrap counter, whom we serenaded twice.

Other than that, the weekend was pretty quiet. Ellen and I hung out on Friday and Saturday nights, and she voluntarily watched more of the Splu Urtaf Show. Unfortunately, two of the discs have turned out to have defects, and I'll have to see about rectifying that. Also, I ordered food from Toppers.

Wa hoo.

** ADDENDUM ** Damn Toppers. Damn them and their complete and utter inability to deliver what I asked for. And heaven forbid it be less than twenty minutes late when I expressly asked how long their delivery wait would be, or that they ring the doorbell instead of knocking on the door, which is impossible to hear from three floors up. Some would say that my standards are too high. I say some should be shot.
Current Mood: Not as good as when I posted this

You gots ta be careful with them ironing boards. One of the last times I was in my laundry room mine tried to jump me. I don't know what makes them so ornery sometimes. Maybe it's standing them alone in dark claustrophobic places for ages at a time, or perhaps it's because we rake burning hot steel across their flesh. Who knows? Just be careful, all right?

I'm being as cautious as I can, but it's making me jumpy. I keep thinking I can see an ironing board behind me reflected in my glasses. I was out driving on my lunchbreak this afternoon, and I thought an ironing board in a Volvo cut me off, but at second glance it turned out to be an elderly woman.

Really? How odd... I'm being stalked by an elderly woman, and for some reason, an ironing board tried to mug me.

I wouldn't trust those little old ladies if I were you... they look so innocent, and then WHAM! They get you with their ironing boards!
Garmonbozia for the soul.
