Signs of the coming Apocalypse....

Sign #239 - The Rock was on Martha Stewart's cooking show and it was actually somewhat entertaining. I'm not a fan of either one, but from what I've seen and heard, The Rock is actually a fairly decent actor. We're not talking Oscar calibre performance, but he's entertaining to watch and he is capable of delivering lines/talking so he's got a leg up on a surprising number of actors, singers, and sport figures :). It was really weird, they were making a chocolate chip cookie cake and I was just shocked, it was a decent (short) segment. I can't help but wonder what the logic was for putting him on her show. Maybe they're trying to broaden his appeal and make him look more accessible as a person/actor? Whatever the reason, the end is near, it must be ;).

Hmmmm in other non-apocalyptic news, I now have trees! Well more trees. My dad woke me up this morning (at 11:30 am, *gasp*) so that we could move a couple of trees from some of our empty lots into my yard (they were in the way of future construction). That was pretty cool. Since we had the backhoe in the yard, I also dug out the foundation for Zhaan's doghouse and moved a small tree out of the way of the rear gates, so hopefully I'll be able to put in a quasi-temporary carport/workspace in the back yard. This is cool since I would like to work on the cars closer to my place (doing stuff like electircal wiring and similar projects would be easier closer to my tools) and leaving cars in various stages of disassembly in the workyard is not such a hot idea since parts tend to get lost or knocked over etc...

So, yeah, today was a dirty, working with the earth kinda day. I liked it, but now, my house is now a bit muddier than I would like. I'm going to have to do something about that tomorrow, because I really don't like having clumps of dirt in the house. Bleh, It's been a month, I guess it's a good time to clean again :).
