Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Happy Dick Clark Eve!

Gotcher snackfoods? How about a little something to drink? This year, instead of staying home and drinking 5 bottles of champagne by myself (okay, I was just testing a little from each, remember?) I’m going to a party at my sister’s neighbor’s house. I’m somebody! If you’re going to drink, don’t drive. Just don’t. Don’t […]

Old Year’s Resolution

I don’t “do” New Year’s Resolutions, so I’ll throw a bone to all you A-types and tell you my Old Year’s Resolution. That’s the one I keep from now until January 1st. I resolve to cut down on my parenthetical comments. Starting now.

So Far, So Good

Okay, the only item I’ve done on the list is good old number four. Tree out the back, floor swept, vacuumed, and swept again (why do we buy a real tree?) and the space in the corner looks good. I will slide the magazine rack in – it matches the LL Bean Fireplace Wood Rack […]

The To Do List

It’s time again for me to share my to do list. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show! 1. Sing the Mohegan Sun “Load Letter Paper” song next time the printer at work is empty. 2. Buy some more Aquaphor so I can just leave a tube at work. Enough carrying it back and forth […]

The Oddest Week of the Year

The week between Christmas and the New Year has to be the oddest of the year. I mean, can anyone get themselves into a frenzy of work knowing that a) a good half the people you normally deal with (if not more) are on vacation, and b) it’s the 2nd short week in a row? […]

Politicians are Like Little Boys

My son and my nephew were playing video games together. Junior turns 6 in 10 days, my nephew will in 5 months. Listening to them tonight was like watching the Leominster city council on the local cable access channel. I don’t even know what game they were playing, but they spent 30 minutes arguing over […]

The Last Week of the Year

So I have less than a week to accomplish all the things I’d intended to do in 2003. I’d better get started today. So what should I start with, playing the guitar or writing a book?

Morning at Chez Dump

I’m trying to finish the book I’m reading. It’s a lovely romance novel – of course, in this case lovely means “includes a character who has her face removed”. Cause you know, romance isn’t everything (or so they tell me). I have to remember to put more seed in the bird feeder today, while the […]

Man, Where Is Everyone?

None of my favorite blogs have been updated, my traffic here is about half what it normally is…what, you guys took the day off? Actually, I didn’t because I’m a contractor. No work = no pay, and I can’t do two days this week, y’know? I went out at lunch to buy some DVD+R disks, […]

Merry Ho Ho

…and happy Jesus’s birthday! Got some pretzels in the Easy Bake Oven, what more could a girl ask for? Santa did good…yesterday when we started wrapping, I was worried there was too much but it turns out a lot of the girfts went to my mom’s for them and my niece and nephew. I think […]
