Wednesday, December 29

Holy bags under the eyes...
Well... sometimes I just kinda look a "before" shot... :)

Mild! It's mild out... this may be a good thing but I was planning on going sledding with the boys this afternoon... and man... I hope it's not a slush fest. eak, it's prol'y a big sheet of ice... hahaha... well, geo will like that. 

Oh, and Geo got 1080 (gamecube) for christmas... I love that game... (~ grin)

~ black ftls
~ old blue jeans
~ p-z t
~ cleaning freak out...
~ take z's new video card out of her pc so I can try and exchange it.... (want the gf6600 cinex 3 thing)
~ then out to z's office to drop something off.
~ Lunch out with the boys,
~ DMV to change my plates (beams)
~ geek store to buy stuff for my pc...
~ more 24 tonight... :)
~ that I enjoy "Medium" (on Jan 3) as much as I expect to. :)
~ all my friends that have to work today... have a speedy and stress free workday.
~ that canuckgirl gets out of airports and somewhere a lot more comfortable!
~ there was more time in a day... :) I can squeeze 18 hours out of a day but that just is not cutting it!
~ that pixiecup enjoys her bro's visit
~ to send a good vibe off to fireflieslie... Her eyes are learning to see.
~ and mostly to smile about the good things that happen.

// I am on a hard core avoidance track with the south asia thing... which, of course, is not actually working.  If I let it... it would consume me. 

Love 'em if you got 'em baby because things can change in a heartbeat.

(no subject)

Ok... so I'm being kinda geeky.
I have my keyboard on my lap, and my feet up on the bookshelf...
This is called the dance of the newly wireless.

George, in the car, as we drove into the Micky D's parking lot
(yes we went to McDeath for lunch... shush. :D)
"I like the name McDonalds... It's easy to remember."
Edward picks up without a moments hesitation...
"It's better than 'Loktee'... that would be harder!"
and "Imagine... 'Dad... can we go to Loktee for lunch..."
George: "I wonder what the Loktee Toy is this week?"
Edward: "Loktee... I'm loving it!"
me: falling apart laughing in the front seat....
... and this didn't get old for a while...

Comment: There was something almost reassuring about pimply faced kids working all the visible zones in a McDonalds.
The "first job" crew... eager and trying not to mess things up. They had get-up-and-go...
No offence, but the geriatric hiring spree at our local McDonalds (Loktee!!!), while socially responsible, is really quite a pain.
My server wanted to engage in a conversation about the hoodlums that stole the christmas tree right out from the Loktee floor...
Then she goes to get ONE BURGER... comes back... places it on my tray... and goes away again to get ONE FRY PACK, then back and forth twice for the two drinks... etc.
Each time... checking the printed bill.  She had "get up and break a hip". 
I mean... this person probably drove here!!!
Ok... sorry... I'm going to hell for criticising old people aren't I...
