happy new year. :)


~ a year for which we should all hold great expectations.
There are a great many little 2004 messes to clean up.

As for me...
I will do what I can, and ask for as little as possible. But I still want my sloth days!
I will appreciate what I have, and try to be reasonable. But I will still lust after cool stuff.
I will love, and I will hope it is passed along.  But nothing man... It's love.


Now dig this...
~ I live ... in the land of the ice and snow
~ our thermostat automagically turns down to "night time" temps after 1:00...
~ you're getting that it's cold right?
~ ok, and every muscle in my body hates me (after skiing today)
~ our bed is a king size jobby from IKEA.
~ it has a huge thread count fitted sheet over a soft mattress pad
~ a sheet...
~ a brand-new-awe-inspiring king sized heating blanket with dual controls ... one on my bedside... one on hers...
~ and a thick down filled duvet on top of all that.
~ The heating blanket is warming up ... as... I... type... and like a magical force, I am being pulled towards the bed....

See ya. :)

Saturday, January 1

ah... another Saturday post. We are continuing the not-on-holidays perspective on the household CFS policy. :)

I've got the post Chinese Food MSG headache thing scratching at the back of my head.
I need a hhhhhhhhhhhhot shower, and advil and some comfort food... maybe a hot shredded wheat.

Up with the boys at... 10:00. hahaha... they stayed up till 1:00 am. So now I have three days to get them back on schedule with 9:00 pm sleep and 7:00 am wake. UG!!!
I drank coffee while getting them through Kumon... marked the kumon and now both kids are locked on video games. I'll let that go on till I finish showering and then it's OUTSIDE with dad to chop at the ice on the laneway.

My legs are a bit stiff from skiing but I'm otherwise much better than I expected to be. I can imagine ... in few years... being able to go on a family ski vacation. Maybe start simple and go to Mt. St. Anne in Quebec city.  But Austria would be an interesting plan to make for down the road...

Oh, and remember I mentioned that Bunn BT10 coffee maker.... well, we still haven't been able to get it.  It's not for sale anywhere ... so I'm going to have to order it on-line.
Bottom Line: we continue to suffer with the punk ass kitchen aid coffee thing.
Warning: do not be fooled. If you make a lot of coffee... the kitchen aid models are not your solution.

~ pj pants
~ old sweat shirt
~ a couple of small projects ...
~ dinner at my brothers house... (a family affair)
~ hacking at the ice on my laneway...
~ oh and 24 has five hours left... man is it getting excited... and when Jack had to shoot dude... man, that just boggled me.
~ the the million watt smile on psychomagnet to have many new reasons to shine in 2005.
~ some gentle wishes for pookfreak... just 'cuz...
~ you really knew the truth...
~ and that webdiva manages to avoid that "almost" stuff... please!! :)

// the fan that comes on the retail box version of a lga 775 socket processor is a noisy fucking bitch... just say'en...

I'm a little off today.
The headache... is low vibe but still.
However the rest of me is a bit on the "off" side.
I need a massage. That would be nice...
A chair massage... shoulders and neck.

Ok. See ya...

ps. if you quit smoking today... power to you and good luck.

(no subject)

Another wee visit to Club December ... and yes, it is rather late.
But the feeling is there, never the less. :)
It's time, actually, that fails to make an appearance at all the proper moments.
