Random Musings

Hi all. Sorry for the lack of blogging lately. With the holiday (and short workweek) here in the U.S., last week I kinda took a week off from life.

Really. I’m not kidding.

Except for going out to my in-laws for a few hours for a Thanksgiving meal on Thursday, and some friends who came over Saturday night for a bit, I did NOTHING the past 4 days. I was in a near-vegetative state. I didn’t go out, didn’t do anything that needed to be done around the house. Hell, on Friday I didn’t even get dressed. I just puttered around the house in my sweat pants.

Sexy image ladies, I know……

And you know what? It was just dandy. Seriously, I think everyone needs a few days every once in a while to just shut down. And I guess I kinda did just that.

Anyway, what else can I tell ya’ll?

Ah yes, the red furry devil-spawn from Hell arrived on Wednesday. You might know him better by his more common moniker, Elmo. I swear, my kid better make this his go-to toy of the year, for all the trouble it took me to get one of these puppies.

Funny story. As the mailman dropped Elmo off at by front door, packaged up in a big box, I bring him into the house when suddenly the damn thing turns itself on! My wife and I are in near panic mode as the box starts bellowing “HAHAH! That Tickles!”. Fearing my son bounding around the corner at any moment, I opened the basement door and chucked it down the stairs.

I hope that little furry bastard finds that funny……..

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, was probably the most exciting part of the last week for me.
Other than that, I have added some new friends to my highly-coveted Friends list over on the left. They are cool, talented, and all very funny. First up we have Yasamin, and next, Melanie, and finally, our returning champion Badgerdaddy, who is back with an all new blog.

Check them out when you get a chance.
