Die - Remote

I was rolling dice today to hit some Dwarfs. I rolled and usually if a die is cocked on something, we reroll. Well, I rolled and I had to reroll a die not because it was leaning on some scenery, but because it was balanced on a corner. You know how it is smoothed out, well, I some how got it to stop on its corner, and then had to reroll (I got a six, yay). I couldn't do it again if I tried. Crazy.

Also, we lost our remote and so we were looking for it. We searched and searched and our apartment is really small. So, if we can't find it in like 3 minutes, it was stolen by a goblin. I was like "It has to be somewhere!" But no, we couldn't find it. So I started to clean. I put away clothes, and bags, an started to clean piles. I go, "Shanno, is it under those pillows?" (the ones he was laying on on the couch) "Nope. I checked." Okay, so I keep looking and Shannon is looking. I can't find them. "Argh." So I check the places a second time. I lift the pillows on the couch and there they are. Yes, the same pillow Shann checked. But that's okay, they were probably out of sight from how he was sitting. But there they were, about 8" from his head. Sigh...

Aaron's the same way. "Did you check your pants you wore yesterday for your wallet?" "Yes." Or... "did you check on the futon in the living room?"

Boys are silly like that.

I know and I'm sorry. It sounds like you didn't. But the sheet on our futon was coming up in the corner and that is where the remote was. So you did look, it was probably just under the sheet. I trust you, it's just funny that we looked for it for 45ish minutes and it was about a foot from your head when we started.

In my first apartment with my girlfriend, we had a universal remote control which just disappeared. Completely.

We eventually did find it. Buried in the internals of a reclining chair. Two *years* later.

Years is a long time to not have a remote. Did you purchase a new one, or live without it for that long? I doubt we'd have made it a month without one.

We went and bought a bigger and better one. One that could control everything in our apartment at the time. And now, I just need to get my windows box running again so I can hook up the serial cable to download new programs to it so that I can control the new DVD player.

Also, as was pointed out to me, the previous reference to girlfriend should have included a note that we since got married.

No, she wouldn't tell me why she couldn't post a comment to right theis horrible wrong.
