And now for your latest update

We're back! Mexico was awesome, SUCH a great time with lots of sun, fun, booze & food. We managed to miss some of the worst weather of the winter, & hopefully that will be the worst of it for the rest of the season. I managed to NOT fry myself like a Colonel Sanders special (yay!), but still got some much-needed color. It all seemed to fly by though. But all good things do, don't they?

I watched the inauguration on tape-delay, as I had to go back to the salt mine today. It was wonderful, & inspiring. I am humbled by the power of the people.

I'm giving serious thought to changing jobs. I feel like I'm at a crossroads - I'm standing at the fork, looking down both paths... and I've no idea which way to go. I suppose it's the new year, & thinking about my rapidly approaching birthday. How is it that I'm going to be 30-fucking-seven!? I don't feel that old! I barely feel 25! sigh Ugh. Enough of that line of thought.

Other than that, nothing too much going on. Trying to get back into the regular routine. Hope everyone is well.

That is all. We now return you to your regularly scheduled life.

Ohhhhh... the weather outside is:

FUCKING RIDICULOUS! Welcome back to the horrors of Minnesota winter! I guess it could be worse - we could be in Moorehead or Fergus Falls, where not only is it snot-freezing cold, but they have a honest-to-god blizzard going on right now. I personally have not ventured outside the comfort of my jammies & house today, but The Hubby informs me that it SUCKS outside. He went to the gym at like 1:30 & it was 37 degrees - by the time he came home the wind had picked up, & things were flash-freezing. Did I mention I was glad I didn't go out today? :) So now I'm starting to dread the drive in tomorrow - here's to hoping MnDOT gets off their lazy asses & throws some salt on the roads.

On the upside, the Vikes are WINNING!!! WHOOT WHOOT! And it's d- 26 days until Sun & FUN in Mexico!!!

How odd.

So on my way home this evening, I stopped at Davanni's to get a pizza. While waiting for said pizza, I passed the time scanning the Strib & came across this article. The thing that caught my attention was that in the paper copy, the subheadline said "...his common law wife said." Now, why on earth was it necessary to point that out? Perhaps some of my more literary friends who read this can unboggle my feeble, Indiana-edjamakated mind.

** Note that the online article called her "his girlfriend".

Ah well. Other than this random observation, not a whole lot going on. Turkey Day was good, the day after fun, the Hubby's mother is insane, but all in all it was a pretty good start to the "holiday season". Onward toward Christmas!

I am witness to History.

At approximately 10:00pm, CST on this day, the 4th day of November, in the year 2008, I bore witness to a moment in history. Today, the United States of America, which only 138 years ago gave African Americans the right to vote, elected an African American President. I honestly never thought I would see this day - or at least not this soon.

I have never been more proud of my country than I am today.

This is why I was so worked up...

... in my last post. I would gladly take animals 99% of the time over most humans.

See here.

Terriers rock. I outta know...

God I fucking hate people.

This sorry-ass excuse for a man should be run through a wood-chipper. Feet first.

Fucking dickless bastard.

I'm Tired...

So Mr. Negative had this to say about the election. It's highly amusing, & so true. And I'm not just saying that because this is one of my all-time favorite movies! ;)

Therefore, I bring to you, the lovely Lilly Von Schtupp. Enjoy!
