Back at it..

Ok ok ok ok ok ok ok ... enough badgering people, the Dimwit is back to blog again, if only for a short while. The thing is, that his blog time was usually during his first hour of work, while the coffee/Dr. Pepper was still slowing making it's way through his veins... but alas, this new project at work has taken his entire attention, as limited as it is in most cases. However, he will risk his very livelihood at this point for your enjoyment... ok, so it's not quite that dramatic, but deal with it...

So the Dimwit really did something stupid this weekend. It was a three-day weekend for him since Friday was his normal Friday off. However, he got this CRAZY idea to throw a garage sale to get rid of all the crap he's accumulated in his house over the past 3 years... Suffice to say that the first day was a bit slow, as 3 of his 4 signs were either blown off their posts or were stolen by the thievery of his Homeowner's Association. But when people did start showing up, it became a cat-and-mouse game of negotiations in mixed Spanglish over whether to accept $0.50 for a $1.00 item or not... really, did The Dimwit want to bargain for $0.75 instead of $0.50 for the sake of getting that extra quarter for the piece of crap he didn't want to have to take back into his home anyways? Yes, yes he did. Much bargaining was done, and ultimately the Dimwit won. He only had one tub of goods (to donate to Goodwill) and a breakfast nook to put back in his garage at the end of the day. The Dimwit votes to never do that again, next time he will just put everything out in the drive way and a big sign that says "Please just steal my crap" because a garage sale, profit or not, was a complete waste of his weekend.

Although in the realm of great news... the Astros managed to avoid a sweep from the Brewers this weekend, the Rockets won game 3 and 4 from the Blazers, and the Texans had a solid (if not a little questionable) draft. Oh yea, and the Houston Aeros did something in the hockey playoffs, and if he had more time, he'd go look up how they did. But alas, ESPN doesn't cover minor league hockey, so he never saw the results...

Back to work, due to some prompting from CorticoWhat... the Dimwit will TRY to get in a daily post, as this blog IS titled "The DAILY Dimwit"... but the Dimwit makes no promises.... Have a great Monday...
