There shall be modesty!


We’re prepping the house today because we have some installers coming by to finally put up blinds on our windows. They’re doing 8 rooms: my office, the sun porch, the kitchen, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms. We’ve been getting by with nothing for a couple of months, and it’s been very annoying. Today, the cat gets to be annoyed at all the strange people tromping through her domain.

You realize what this means, right? All you peeping toms have missed the golden opportunity to spy on me in dishabille, and that window is closing today.

    The mildly deranged penguin points out the opportunity to observe what the evil cat does to poopyhead will now become much much easier. Previously, as hinted-at in the OP, this mainly meant carefully-positioned telephoto lens, probably with no or poor sound, and only glimpses. The new “blinds” are, of course, of the latest sooooper snooper technology, and provide a streaming high-definition stereophonic round-the-corner service. Unfortunately, only in real-time, there is no trans-time-shifter. Or for that matter, transporter, so at distances sufficiently far-away — Milky Way to Alpha Centauri scale — things will not be quite as clear. Several viewings may be required.

    Or did we?

    You did that video from the bathtub a while back. Clearly you’re not THAT averse to naked blogging.

    And with all these lawsuits looming I’m not sure you can afford to dismiss lucrative threats that casually – we’d probably pay good money to ensure you keep the clothes on throughout!

    Now I can blog naked if I want. Not that I want to.

    It’s not like we can tell one way or t’other…

    Whoa. Did you know it gets really dark at night when the shades are all drawn? Our shock this morning was waking up at 5 and discovering the house was pitch black and having to stumble around in the dark.

    Our shock this morning was […] discovering the house was pitch black and having to stumble around in the dark.

    Ah, that explains it. The mildly deranged penguin said some of the krackens throught they successfully connected to the sooooper snooper stream from the “blinds” but couldn’t see anything. Great sound, however, apparently, including that bit where something quite loud, probably the evil cat or possibly a toothbrush, was stepped on (presumably). The resulting sounds of clanks, dings, splashes, and warbling were nicely timed — had the video been viewable, it probably didn’t even need to be set to Yakety Sax to be hilarious.
