Yard work sucks

Seriously.  I fucking hate yard work.  On top of everything else I’m doing, I’m trying to prepare for a kid’s party on Sunday.  And it looks like we’re in for a few days of torrential rain so I had to get out and mow the lawn and trim the edges this morning before the storm set in.

Have I mentioned before that I’m very lazy?  And out of shape?  I pretty much got a year’s worth of exercise crammed into a few hours today.  And it feels like my fucking arms are going to fall off.  It’s almost beyond my abilities right now to sit here and type.

And after months of preparation the big YouTube gathering starts in about 36 hours.  Wait a minute, it’s actually 2 and 1/2 days not 1 and 1/2.  I’m right on the edge of freaking out over this.  One of the ways this is manifesting is I’ve had no sense of time this week.  It feels like everything is going to happen NOW.  I’m consistently forgetting which day of the week it is.  On Monday I thought it was Friday and had a panic attack.

Next week it will all be over.  And I’m sure I’ll have no idea whatsoever what to do with myself.

    Hope you’re not like me, cause one night years from now you’ll wake up from some horrible nightmare where the gathering has already started and you’re still at home, completely unprepared. I get dreams like that about exams I took more than a decade ago.

    haha! that’s the same kind of nightmares I get. Haven’t studied, haven’t finished college, haven’t prepared for the plane that is already leaving…

    And hey, Mr. Angry, you’re talking ’bout that f***ing feeling that now you have time for all those things you didn’t have during work time. That’s my reason to use the Outlook tasks tab. It’s working for me!!

    Have a good time gathering as one!!!

  3. DOA, I have the same nightmares occasionally about studies I finished over ten years ago. I guess this proves what a traumatising time studying can be.

    Good luck with everything Mr A – I’m sure it will all go smoothly.

    But sometimes yard work is necessary. Example:

    Do they do the thing in Australia where you put chips of bark on the ground in the place of an actual yard? Here in America, if you see a bark-yard, it means that the people in there are addicted to methamphetamines and have been inbreeding for at least five generations.

    Example 2:
    My friend has a yard the size of a sedan. But she has managed to take such bad care of it that it has completely grown over with weeds. It looks like the yard of a haunted house.

    Moral of the story: yard work may suck, but at least no one will think you’re a redneck or a vengeful ghost.

  6. Angry, you are a big sook.

    If you haven’t got the brains to pay some 12 year old with a mower to do it for you, you are a real dill. It is an Australian tradition we get kids to do the real work and pay them pittance. That is what being an Aussie kid is about – well maybe 30 years ago it was, these days they are all sooks too.

    Listen mate, the idea behind the youtube gathering is to have fun. You know, relax, let it all hang out and have good, old fashioned fun. Now get your shit together and do it.

    Hey Angry,
    Hope the party went well. The you-tube gathering was awesome and you guys did a kick ass job. Oh and thanks for havign em at your house, you were right that couch was SO GOOD.

  8. My friends say that they had kids just so the kids could do the yard work… not the other way around.

    You gotta work on that Mr. Angry. Hook those little suckers up the a lawn mower with leather straps and a rubber bit and let them pull like the little work horses they are. ha…ha..ha.. :D

    My mom always said she had me so she wouldn’t have to change the channel. Growing up, I thought my name was “Hey kid, change the channel”. ha..ha.ha…

  9. Well, I survived both the gathering and the yard work.

  10. Good job then!

    Yard work is good for the soul Mr. Angry. And clearly you are a man who appreciates a neat yard, carefully noting the weather’s influence upon the whole endeavor. I hope you plant something new in your yard this summer, and don’t forget to try the yellow hat.
