8:44 am: Having painted a doorway and taped off some trim last night, I can almost smell success. I will finish painting the living room tonight! Once I do, my life will be complete – perfect even.
8:45 am: I race into the kitchen to make breakfast before I begin.
8:58 am: Drat! The Kitchen Gremlins have been at it again. They’ve absconded with the Mexican oregano, salsa and garlic. I make do with two scrambleds drenched in Green Tabasco and black pepper, and accompanied by a glass of uber strong coffee with milk.
9:09 am: Having scrambled my mind by reading the postings on the [redacted] board by McCain’s half-bats cousin, including his threat against Obama, I feel a degree of gratification that yesterday, I sent the link to that board to the Obama campaign.
9:13 am: I begin the final stage of caulking, taping and painting in the living room.
