One of the lightbulbs from yesterday’s post has spontaneously resurrected itself. I believe this means it may be a zombie lightbulb. I really won’t know until I see if it attempts to cannibalize the other lightbulbs, and as of this writing, it has not moved. So it’s possible that it’s not a zombie lightbulb, but it’s also possible that it’s just reeeaaaaallllllyyyy crafty.
Only time will tell.
It’s also possible that, as I suggested in yesterday’s post, fresh lightbulbs migrated from the hallway closet, closing the narrow gap between themselves and their fallen comrades. Except I didn’t leave the closet door open (because I am OCD that way and we have all decided to find that charming.)
But it could have been the cat. Because, as illustrated in yesterday’s highly technical AutoCad drawing, he can open doors.
I’m also in an ethical dilemma. I’m considering awarding myself Martha Points that I didn’t earn. Stealing MP’s. It’s a desperate act brought on by the heady rush of success brought on by my +47 score being so violently and immediately brutalized by 1)almost burning the house down with a bouquet of flowers and then, 2) abandoning incandescent lighting in the bathroom.
So now I’m hyper and anxious about my points. And given the fact that I’m only just recovering from that whole full heart-lung transplant thing, I haven’t been able to do anything Martha Point-worthy.
But I did (last week…shhhh….) take the picture of the pretty wisteria in my backyard.
Except, I didn’t grow the wisteria, my lovely neighbor did.
But….I want the Martha Points! (If you didn’t cringe just now, you did not imagine me pitiful enough.)
She doesn’t need them, she’s German! (I have no idea how this is relevant in any way, but it’s the only rationalization I can think of at the moment.)
Ok, I’m desperate and slightly insane from the after-effects of antibiotics and codeine, plus I have all the stress of worrying about whether or not I have a zombie lightbulb infestation (just who do you call about that problem, anyway), so I award myself +3 points for having the foresight to coax my neighbor’s wisteria into growing over the fence so it can enhance my backyard.
Which brings my score back up to +30.
