Briefly

You know, I’ve been sitting here in my home, sometimes by choice, others by force of nature in the form of unending snow, and it’s really been challenging to come up with things to discuss.  Janie and I don’t even talk anymore unless it’s about that former teen idol show we just watched or what that stink is or hey, here’s an idea Janie, how’s about you get off me, already?

It’s been pretty clear that I’ve not had much to say about anything if you’re basing it solely on the recent content of my website.  I posted a picture of a squirrel several days ago.  That’s the extent of what I bring to the table thus far in 2009, a squirrel in a hat.  I’d like to apologize for this lack of content.  Also, I want a domesticated squirrel of my own.  If you have a squirrel needing a good home, please send me an email.  I want to dress it up in tiny outfits and name it Steve.

Janie and I spent the first half of New Year’s Day at my parent’s cabin sucking water our of the downstairs carpet with a shop vac.  A pipe burst in the laundry room which flooded the downstairs, then one of the upstairs decks leaked into the kitchen, so there was a lot of water damage.  It was an unfortunate incident, but they took it in stride and work has already begun for repairing the damage.  In other unfortunate holiday news, one of Janie’s coworker’s house burned down on Christmas eve.  Holiday season 2008 did not treat Seattle well, with shit like this and the Arctic Blast bullshit that practically shut the city down for two ridiculous weeks.  Needless to say, those of us in the PNW were happy to see 2008 wind down.

I’ve been on vacation for a few weeks now and Wednesday will be my first day back at work!  What this means is that I better get going because it’s Armageddon week on the History channel and there’s a lot I’m gonna need to see so I know how to spend my time leading up to 12/21/12, when the Rapture is upon us.  I suggest you tune in as well.

    I suggest you host a week-long Armageddon Watching party. During breaks and after the show each night we can discuss ways we are not yet prepared for The End Times. We can practice running around in hysterics and duct taping our window seams. Catering should be easy – head out to the Army Surpluss and get some MRE’s and bottled water. We’re good to go!

    i want a squirrel too, so if you get extras let me know. my husband probably would say no, but he’s not the boss of me.

    i wish you could re-direct some of that snow my way, i’d gladly take some of it off your hands.

    i hate being home bound by some uncontrollable force like that, so i’m feeling you.

    I went back to work on Monday after almost 3 weeks off and I just wanted to warn you that the whole going back to work thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. All in all, sitting around in pajamas thinking about rodents or sitting around in pajamas not answering the door seem like much more worthy pursuits
