Some Announcements...

1. I'm Officially Mike K.'s Bitch at Work.
The man needs a chill pill in some form or another. Seriously, we've just come off a nice 4-day weekend and only work 3 days this week, you'd think the man would be as relaxed as the rest of us, but nnooooo, as he isn't normal to begin with. I felt for Kia when she was in this boat, but now I'm in it bailing as fast as I can just to keep my head above the pile of papers on my desk... If he could learn to multi-task with just a modicum of happiness about him, life would be great at work, but since even the smallest 1 error AA sets him into panic mode, all I can hope for is someone else to get promoted, then I officially will stop being his bitch and can stress about my own work, and not just the shit he feels like throwing on me "as a teaching tool."
2. I'm Going to Be an Uncle Again.
Yes, my lovely in-laws down in Maryland have announced that they're expecting in early August--Whoopee!!! I was just bugging the siblings on Saturday about how 7 nieces and nephews just ain't enough, but since all my siblings seem to be done procreating, besides Rich and myself, Rich's brother and his wife are the only chances I now have of having more kids in this family... And since Rich isn't planning on having kids anytime soon (he still feels we're too poor--which we are, but notwithstanding, we ain't getting any younger!!!), Mike and Wendy are in the forefront of blessing our lives with more bundles of joy... Of course, it's one more to keep track of, but the more the merrier, I say!
3. The Legends of Zelda: The Twilight Princess.
By far the best Christmas gift I received! I've already logged in over 24 hours of game time, and I've only had it for two days!! Yes, this is the geek in me, I love the Zelda series for Nintendo, and am hoping that, even though they have this "Wii" thing out, they'll still produce more games for the GameCube... Of course, Windwaker was a sucky-ass game, but they've more than made up for it with this latest entry in the Zelda series. As an added bonus, this is the first time I've owned a Zelda game before Tom, so perhaps I may even beat it before he does! (Now that I think about it, though, I think I beat Windwaker before he did as well...) Oh well, it's one of those things: sibling rivalry. Tom was always better at these games than I was, so even all these years later, I still think of it as a great personal accomplishment when I beat these games before he does, even though we are no longer in head-to-head competitions... It also helps that we no longer live in the same house, so I don't see him doing these things better than I anymore either...
4. Snow sucks.
Luckily, global warming has kept all but the merest of dustings from falling on my home. But some stupid-ass lady who works back in the warehouse saw some little snowflakes falling just now and went off about snow and its beauty.
  1. It's only the barest of flurries
  2. It's 40 degrees outside
  3. It's going to be 60 degrees again by New Year's Eve
  4. 10 to 20 snowflakes do not a snowfall make, and your over-excitement about it just confirms what a dumbass you are
  5. Come shovel out my driveway, then we'll talk
Am I being too hard on her? Maybe. Is she still a dumbass? Yes.
5. Poor Gerald Ford.
6. Happy New Year
if I don't get a chance to blog again before Dec. 31st. After all, I have Zelda to play!
