Where Else In The World....

.....could you wake up at 6 AM to almost 60 degree weather, with a little rain, and by the time you leave work at 10:30 PM, its 20 degrees and its been a freezing, sleeting kinda snow for about 2 hours and the windows on your car are frozen shut and it's a good thing you have a remote starter other wise you'd be a little popsicle on the ride home?

Here of course!

Y'know.....I really wasn't so sick of winter until tonite. I like winter, but, tonite just put me over the edge a little. Kinda glad I'm off to Florida tomorrow.

See ya next week.

The One Thing I Miss Whilst Working On Friday Nights

is going out for a Fish Fri....Buffalo style. I usually get one the week we're off in July. And on Ash Wednesday. Which just so happens to be today.

Yum! All that beer-battered goodness!!!! And the mac and the potato and the slaw and the fries!

I think that pretty much wipes out the hour I just spent at the gym, but I don't care. It was DELISH!!!!

So.....The Spouse took off for the Deep South today on the annual "Mikey Does Florida Golf Tour"

Have I ever mentioned how I look forward to this tour as much as he does?

People think I'm strange and wonder how I "allow" this separate vacation. "Allow?" I reply...."excuse me, but I highly "ENCOURAGE" this phenomenon!"

Are you kidding me?

The New Bear Skin Rug Picture

This poor kid never has to worry about the embarrasment when mom and dad pull out the picture of him on a bear skin rug and show it to his friends or girlfriend....or his kids. It's on the the internet forever for the whole world to see.

So...I Went and Joined a Gym

...and boy are my arms tired. *ba dabump ching*

I really haven't done anything resembling physical activity in about 6 months. I used to be religious about working out. Every morning when the Offspring took off for school, I'd be in front of the tv with my Buns of Steel or The Firm or the Balance Ball. But, things evolve and kids dont get on busses at 7am anymore and I turned into a lazy schlub who would always start again tomorrow. And as we all know, tomorrow never comes.

Offspring #3 is a member at The BAC so I decided to join too.

So I knew I was out of shape. But I didn't realize how badly till I did this cute little assessment. There's the measuring tape, and the scale, and the flexiblity thing and the 3 minute step test. And when I say step test I mean stack of steps that was knee high. I thought I was gonna die. goal is to be back in my size 9 Calvin Klein jeans. They're in a box in my closet and I'll be pulling them out soon, just to gauge my progress. Right now I can just get them over my thighs, and no where near being able to zip.

Wish me luck. *and I dont mean luck with the jeans...I mean luck getting out of this chair, cuz my muscles are sooooo fatigued right now*

Flight 3407

The Offspring went to school with this kid

Tons of stories like that one everywhere you go.

And The Judge down there in the Kicezka post...his brother's girlfriend, who was coming into town for a family wedding, was on that plane.

News Flash!!!!!

Amazing news! *finger in the ear speaking into the mic..Gary Owens style*......

It hasnt snowed in 48 hours!!!! Two whole days with no white stuff. In fact it was almost 40 degrees yesterday...upper thirtys today.

I even went so far as to wait in the looonnnggg line at Delta Sonic to have my car washed.

Thats all

Not Impressed

I gotta say...I don't think it was a banner year for Super Bowl commercials.

And that run at the end of the half....that 100 yd interception return cost us $7,000 on the big pool. At least we won the third quarter. Kinda made up for it. Sorta. The way I see it, someone owes us 2 grand. Either the guy who ran the ball or the dolts who couldnt stop him.
