I heart sanding!

A few weeks ago I put most all my house projects on hold until I get a day job. (let me know if know of any.) This became a good excuse for my continued procrastination of sanding the walls and ceilings. All of it too. It's part of a little project I like to call, "The Smoothing". The walls and ceilings were textured and I wanted to smooth them out. So after applying a few coats of joint compound it's been time to sand for a little while. I rented a power sander from Homedepot last night, man was that nice. It went really fast and cut down on the dust a lot. It doesn't really do corners so well so that's what I'm doing in the photo. Look how happy I look, maybe I should start my own fan page for sanding on facebook.

It's all the same.

So I've fallen of the no TV for the summer wagon. In the last year I have seen the same kidnapping ransom payoff scheme three or four times. The set up is that ransom is to be dropped off in a specific type of bag in a public space. Soon after the space is filled with people all carrying the same exact same bag. Maybe it's a bunch of kids in school uniforms with the same backpacks or it's part of a "flash mob" performance art piece. It's been done on Castle, The Unusuals, Rush (Australian show), and I think maybe one of the CSI's. It was also done in Leverage but it wasn't a kidnapping. I've tried to find out if this based on a really story or if all the cop shows just steal ideas from each other.
