I'm about to pull the plug on my computer for about a week, so I can drive to Seattle, so here's my holiday send-off. Everybody be safe and have fun.

See you in S-town!

The Pork of the Porcupine...

So I made a bit pot of chili, and I'm eating it, and I notice "damn I'm gettin' fat." But you wouldn't know it by looking at me, because I bought a new sweatshirt at Target for $6. And it's a Large. Seriously, I've been slacking on Yoga and I feel lazy. But with an impending move and a new life on the horizon, there's tons to do in a short amount of time, and I haven't had the chance to go to Yoga. I do still drink Yoga tea and listen to Yoga music, but it's not the same.

Happy Birthday 'D'...

On the left is my nephew Dominic, and today is his birthday! He's somewhere between 5 and 8 years old today! He loves Star Wars and getting beaten-up by his younger sister.

The House of Nine Shadows...

I watched "The Thin Man" last night (1934 Willam Powell, Myrna Loy). Great movie. Despite not being gay, I can still appreciate the style and flair of the silver screen. Nick and Nora Charles basically throw a fancy dinner party to reveal the murder suspect they've been following. Sounds not-that-great, I know, but I get to watch fancy people drink martinis.

Working from home is just ok. I have the dogs and the birds and lots of coffee, and no one around, but I do get a little antsy from time to time. The biggest problem is the time difference. I talk to my co-workers a lot throughout the day, but they're 2 hours behind. So basically, I start around 8am, and finish around 730 pm (because it's only 530 to them). I've been in on conference calls in the middle of Krogers. I've talked to customers while not wearing pants. It's weird. But I get to look out my window and watch the birds go through their day, which is about as simple as mine, really.

And eventually, the shadows grow long and darken my keyboard and it's quittin' time. Time to put some pants on.
