Really?? It's DECEMBER?? Where in the crap did THIS year go? It seems like I was just contemplating my 2009 "write it to myself in January and have it publish on NYE 09" post, which I never did, by the way, so don't wait around for THAT end-of-month. Guess I'll have to start contemplating one for 2010.
WHICH I am not elated to have to write, by the way. "2010", that is. Why? Well, if you're writing "12/2/09" on your checks, paperwork, whatever, and the next year's short version starts with another "0", you've got that one number's time when writing to remember that it's a new year. With "10" coming up, no such luck. LOTS of "1"s squeezed in behind "0"s coming up, I'd bet.
So, let's seeeeeeee, what completely random factoids can I share with you on this fine cold morning...
* I am considering making the cookie bark again this year. It was pretty poplular last year, and they have the colored holiday Oreos again, so we may crack out the Wilton's bark and get to melting here soon.
* My tree's been up since the Sunday before Thanksgiving. Sue me.
* I am not on the "beach" right now, but am spending much time pondering how to drag myself back up out of the waters of junk food and lethargy.
* My body is fundamentally displeased with NOT being on the "beach". It is sharing that with me on a regular and painful basis. Let's just leave it at that.
* A while back, the kids ran across "Astro Boy: The Series", from the 80's, on Netflix Instant View, and it's been a fixation ever since. Had they their druthers, they'd sit and watch him all. day. long. They do NOT have their druthers, by the way, but they do get to watch a few times a week. They are now also dying to know when they'll get to see the movies.
* I have exactly 2 gifts purchased for Christmas. Two.
* The cold we have anxiously been hoping would not come...is coming.
* I consider and ruminate on new blog topics regularly, and seldom get them down on paper before they disappear.
* I hope you'll check back on the off-chance that I happen to get one of them down on paper soon.
