Happy Birthday to Sis!

Wednesday, January 7th, 2004

I can remember way back (hey, about 31 years ago) when they brought my sis home from the hospital. I think (and this is what I’ve been told) my mumses went to the hospital while my dad alternated between home and the hospital and my dad’s side grandparents stayed home with me. I do have a faint vague hazy recollection of mumses not being there for a span of time and dad sorta being there but that was OK by me. Someone told me that my parents were going to pick up a sister for me and that I would have a new playmate! I was ALL excited. Someone to play with! I could hardly wait. I know I must have missed my mum but I think in my little 3 year old mind it was alright that she wasn’t there for a few days because when she came back there would be someone to play with!


A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That

Down to the wire, I’m comtimuing with a post a day! Tonight, though, I’m just full of random little bits so I thought I’d share.


Es schneit!

Monday, January 5th, 2004

As the Germans would say. Or, more correctly, ‘es schneit noch’, since I don’t think it ever really stopped from last night. Hard to say, I work underground. Or, if you are feeling petulant, ‘es schneit endlich’ although I’m not sure the Germans would use ‘endlich’ that sarcastically. Hmmm. Anyway, for those of you who are Germanically declined, it’s snowing, and it’s about time. I was seriously considering planting my bulbs on Sunday before it got so cold. Errr…well for the strange warm streak we seem to have been experiencing lately, because what idiot in Michigan would ordinarily consider planting bulbs just after the new year? I’m just a bit happy to see the cold stuff, although this does mean I’m going to have to do something with my bulbs before they go all soft on me.


One Drummer Drumming

Sunday, January 4th, 2004

Hey there. Gosh, it’s after 11pm and I haven’t posted yet. This every day in December thing (which I did manage to do. HA!) has got me all addicted like. I feel like I must post or suffer some sort of something or other bad. It’s a lot of weird nebulous feeling of nerves and stuff…or maybe gas. Who knows. Would you look at that though, now I have set myself a precedent of putting up an entry every day and I’m used to it. Damn, it’s like work or something, except fun and no check lists.

Alright, alright already. I’m workin on it.


Misfortune Cookies

Friday, January 2nd, 2004

Had a bit of Chinese for dinner and as always, the best part of the meal is the fortune cookies! Even when you get one that tells you “The greatest danger is your stupidity”. No really! I have that one taped to my computer. It amuses me. In fact, we have a whole collection of them on the fridge. Take a peek.
