I was going to whine about today being sucky... because I'm missing work and falling a bit behind.
Then I remembered that that included "missing work" as a word pairing and decided to suck-it.
Today is not sucky because I'm not at work. :)
Ed had his school play, christmas extraveganza last night...
My m&d and suzie's m all came to sit at our table.
It was kinda cool... this one teach (Ed's teach) does this same gig every year... it's a play called "An Environmental Christmas" or something... it's silly and enviro-message enabled... but mostly it's a play for 12 parts... performed by 20 something kids and they (the kids) decide on who the new characters are going to be each year... and write lines for them and and and and ... They make their own set, costumes, and everything... There was singing, dancing, a story, a santa, a message and general goofyness that made the whole thing adorable. And the gym was set up with long tables, plastic table cloths, decorated logs and food service... families were asigned a table decorated by their child. :)
However... when we got home from that... his Ed'ness began coughing... and by bed time... he was a mess. :(
So he's in bed now and I stayed home to take care of the little monster. ;)
~ black jeans, white tee... and a big hoodie.
~ wake up... get zee up... get geo up... and close the door on Ed's room so he can sleep. :( After his show last night... his cough came up full-on and now he's my little sick guy. (He got sick at christmas last year... it wasn't fun for him one bit... so he's home from school suckin juice, eating fruit, and staying bundled up until he's better! grrrrr. cold-fx!!
~ so yeah, work from home...
~ read the never freaking ending thread of commentary generated by a rant into the Ottawa community over the punk-ass bus strike. yikes. (same thing I said in my post yesterday. )
~ spaghetti for dinner and hopefully watch Chuck... never got there last night. :)
~ sending a big ol'vh5 out to kimmellee

~ that sirenity gets a basket of sleep under her christmas tree. :)
~ and to send lj love, enough to fill an ocean liner cargo hold, out to mz sugar-bronze...er... brameyl
Just freaking imagine... if George had caught that first shoe... dodged the second one... and then rushed from the podium to smack that guy with his own shoe. One "whack" ... a good one, mind you... and then returned to the podium, asking for everyone to just settle down. And then dropped the whole affair...asked for everyone to just drop it.
Can you imagine the awesome press he would have got from that????
However... he ... (wait for it) duck, ducked.
Kinda ... lame. :)
The city is in a weird place.
A major artery that joins the twinned downtown cities that are separated by the ottawa river was closed suddenly two weeks ago due to a discovered flaw in the concrete supports. This diverted people from their regular pathways.
Winter began to fall in earnest... and everything slows down and bunches up.
And the previously diverted people were moved further from their regular pathways.
We are now a week into a devastating christmas season public transit strike.
And people are pushed beyond their limits... into truly unfamiliar pathways.
Now? Well we had a big snow yesterday, another one is on the books for tomorrow and the weather idiots are calling for "snow-mageddon" on Sunday...
My city is tired... a bit confused... and is now kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop.
My city needs it's christmas miracle.
