    I did my christmas shopping online last week, now I'm shopping for myself. Bailed on about 3 different sites where the shipping cost was the same as the product. Product 5 bucks more, saner shipping? I'm not so cranky about that.

    I'm feeling kinda old. I'm turning 49 on Thursday, but that's not it. I had a devil of a time (even grumbling under my breath) getting out of the back seat of dad's car. (He & his wife took me for an early birthday supper.)

    Are the boxes of mandarin oranges later than usual and a meh price elsewhere on the planet, or is it just western Canada?

    Waiting for my lunch break in 40 minutes so I can relax a little bit. My last customer was really annoying "I understand it's not your fault and I'm not trying to beat on you but....." *verbally beats on me for another 10 minutes.

    Or maybe the dirt? When I was a kid, they used to say "A peck of dirt before you die." They didn't mean a peck like a bird. They meant 8 quarts or a quarter bushel.

    The higher my pain level goes, the worse the potty mouth becomes. Gotta work on that...

    Looking at the ugliest Christmas sweater I've ever seen though I suspect Mathie would like it.

    Right now I'm looking at my $500 Christmas bonus check and feeling thankful for this job. In 2 days I'll have been here 4 years.

    At work early today so I can get in a full day. We're closing 5 hours early for our annual company Christmas party. I'm normally not even awake for another hour and a half so this sucks.

    I am up, shouldn`t be. Hormones hate me...can`t decide if I should stitch or do laundry...

    Indeed it was good- should have thought of it when I was first disappointed with the batch. Now I'm wondering what sort of gravy the liquid off it would make. A four pound roast braised in a pint of it for a bit over three hours, so is it closer to drippings or closer to still being a spiced honey mixture?

    Thanks for the responses. On the birthday card I went with the bland and cliched "Thinking of you and wishing you well". The thinking of her is true enough, but THOSE thoughts won't be conveyed to her. Not to mention the cost of four weeks of hospitalization, so far, including a week in the ICU on life support and several rounds of dialysis, must be staggering. Gah. Don't mean to sound so cold, but this is her second attempt in about 4 years. She won't accept the fact that she needs help. *rant, rant*

    Lordy, that sounds good!

    Cancer always sucks, no kidding.

    On that note, my respirologist is also happy with my CT scan and wants to try various medications. First one is a prescription nose spray? For coughing up golf balls of phlegm in the morning? Whatever.

    On a less happy note, I also found out my step-daughter's pap smear results this morning. The doctor's say it's concerning, but not alarming, at this point. They will have to do a biopsy on the cancerous cells to get a better picture. Cancer runs strong in Dreigha's family. There's other shit going on her life that makes this really lousy timing but I'm not allowed to go into that.

    *Just a note..all 4 of her kids (3 girls and a boy) are technically step-kids since none share my blood but I raised the youngest two since they were 5 and 7 so consider them 100% mine.

    Just got done talking with a customer who had 2112 as part of their email address. I had to ask to be sure and they were indeed a fellow Rush fan. So now I'm going through the album in my mind until I can listen to it at lunch.

    The Priests praise my name on this night
