'Twas the Week Before Christmas

Been very busy. I last posted on Monday, and since then, a friend of ours was suddenly thrown into tough times and has to be moved out of her apartment by the 31st. So we've spent the week helping with sudden moving and such. I am weary and my feet hurt.

I have been having, on and off, bouts of the "I feel like Charlie Brown" holiday blues, of the "I don't know what's wrong with me, Linus. I don't feel the way I should" sort -- nothing I can pinpoint or explain, and fortunately, it's been going as often as coming.

I've come over with a desperate and unrequited desire for one of the little pine trees they're selling at Fry's. It's silly, this particular kind of pine won't grow well here so I can't put it outside, but damn it, I want one. The old dragon plant I had on my desk for years and years and years finally died and it's still in its pot on the front porch, glaring accusingly at me.

I haven't been able to do much (read: any) baking yet, although I made one batch of slightly failed fudge (the butter separated, possibly due to using marshmallows instead of marshmallow fluff), which at least tasted good, and now a NOT failed batch. Which reminds me, for those of you who have received sweets from Barb & I, would you like fudge with nuts, fudge without, or fudge with coconut?

I'd do a poll, but I've never done one and I don't know how.

Despite the general horribleness of things lately for so many people, there is good stuff happening -- I loved this story.

This amused the hell out of me -- I've felt the same way about a number of those songs, especially #5.

PRETTY pictures!!!

I have to work tomorrow, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I hope we get everything cleared out of the apartment in time. Barb was able to take some time off -- I can't. I move into my next team leader position tomorrow, and although I already know the job, I can't not be there!

Happy holidays, everyone, no matter what you celebrate -- Happy Festivus, Solstice, Christmas, Hanukkah, or just have a good day.
