Our First Christmas Card

Since the weather isn’t exactly helping to get me into the holiday spirit, I have to rely on other things… this awesome Christmas card that we got in the mail today – the first one this year!!

Christmas Card from Gary and Michelle :-)

Michelle and Gary….you guys made my day 😉


It was a gorgeous day today…..just not my idea of what late November should be like. Took this pic of a derelict being towed up the Delaware while we were stuck on the Tacony Bridge waiting for said derelict to pass under…………

My big sweetheart puss, Dominic, had to have a couple of teeth pulled today….poor guy 🙂

In My Life

There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
Though I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

You know they have a hell of a band……….

The Friday Five – 11.30.01

The Friday Five

1. What did you have for dinner last night?

I picked my mom up from work and we thought that my dad was making baked macaroni for dinner. Turned out he had fried up some Spam type substance…with pierogies and spinach for side dishes. So, for dinner last night I had pierogies and spinach.

2. Do you ever get up for a midnight snack?

Are you kidding…? It ruins my day if I have to get up to pee in the middle of the night and that’s only the next room over….I sure as hell ain’t going all the way downstairs! Besides, I hardly think I *need* midnight snacks 😉

3. What’s your favorite dessert?

Bennigans Brownie Bottom Pie…..or pretty much anthing that involves a brownie/blondie and ice cream 🙂

4. Tell us something about you that would surprise us.

I go through phases of Bulemia or Anorexia…..right now, I’m Bulemic.

5. How do you plan to spend your weekend?

Working. It’s actually more trouble than it’s worth to find someone that can work for me so even though I have this cold, I’ll be working tomorrow and Sunday. My parents are taking Brittany to Cape May tomorrow, though, and I’m actually kind of upset that I can’t go 😦

Great, now *I’m* sick. I don’t think it would bother me so much if I’d get the hacking and the coughing and the sneezing and all that crap, but no! I just get a fever (only 101.7 last time I checked – whoo-hoo!) and this goddamn stuffy nose that doesn’t even run – it just sits there sending out those “hey i’m really stuffy” twinges under my eyes….oh, and then of course there’s the lovely post-nasal drip. Blech…I’m sure you all need to know how my colds go, right?

To make matters even better though – considering that I don’t want to do anything but sit in one place a not move anything – my computer is refusing to connect. Bill!! With his damn network set-up crap. I had to reset my computer earlier today and when it came back up the flippin’ thing says that it can’t find my modem. I have no idea how he has any of this shit set-up. So I’m stuck using his computer to check my mail (through hotmail) and not being able to upload anthing until Sunday!!! Oh yeah, he’ll be back Saturday, but he’ll be back in time to get dressed and leave for work – aaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!!!!

My head hurts.

Heather Rocks!

Ya know…..Heather really is awesome 🙂

Not only was she nice enough to tape Crossing Jordan for me last night, but her aortal link to me almost doubled my visits today!

Heather, you rock and I’m impatiently waiting with you 😉


Yeah, I know I’ve been slackin’ today. We went out with my mom and dad earlier today and didn’t get home till after 3….way past Brittany‘s nap time. She’d had a bit of a runny nose all morning but when she woke up from her nap – whoa! Full blown cold!! Fever, coughing, sneezing, miserable and vomiting. Lovely evening. Poor kid 😦

Anyway, what free time I did have today I spent working on getting the new journal thingie. I’m going to be moving the journal in the next few days, I’ll post the new URL when it’s all done.

I also updated some of the links on this site, added a few that I’ve been meaning to and all…..still have a few things to do before I go to bed, though…….


Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the f@&* around here!!!!! I knew I wasn’t going to be able to see this goddamn show. I knew that something was going to happen to keep me from seein’ this because I’ve been *so* anxiously awaiting it…….and I really don’t want to have to wait for the re-run 😦
Anyone on the west coast wanna tape it for me?? I’ll pay you for the tape and shipping???

Crossing Jordan

If you hear a loud shriek in a minute or two, it’s because our cable is still out (God only knows why) and I will not be able to see the second part of last weeks Crossing Jordan……
