Umm..

Day 2 of sunshine. Yesterday I did laundry, swept the kitchen floor, went shopping, cooked a hunk o'beef in the crockpot, and scrubbed the shower in a manner that would have made my Celtic ancestors proud. Today I'm at work telling people that no, we still don't have the 1040 instruction booklets. Quite a lot of the time, considering our demographic, I want to add, "Don't complain to me about the government. This is what you voted for. Enjoy your hopenchange." I am wearing a new purple sweater and drinking a crappy cup of coffee while I contemplate the horrid state of my cuticles.

This weekend it's supposed to snow and I'll be canning (jarring?) some lemon ginger marmalade with my mom.

Now, aren't you glad I blogged?

I'm assuming that since this is Browns Town, you'll be rooting for the Cheeseheads to beat those jkhfvkj&^^** Steelers like we will. By the way, how thick is the Ice over in your neighborhood?

Snow here in DFW. I got caught out. I rode the ST1100 to work, as A: the roads had a clear lane 99% of the way, and B: the other motorbike (an old dual purpose) wouldn't start and I'm out of starting fluid. Thought I'd keep an eye out and leave just before the snow I forgot about. . . oops, By the time I noted it was showing 25 miles away on radar, it started....Once the snow got an inch thick, I stopped falling over.

I just spent $1600 repairing the bodywork from a crash in November.

So Have Fun In The Snow!

I always like the notes you post, even the mundane ones.

Hmm. You should task a minion or a friend with graphics skills to make a button that says "No 1040 forms yet!" if they won't let you put a sign (that people wouldn't read anyway) out. :-)

lemon ginger marmalade? Oooooh.

OMG. Where is that woman's gun?

You're telling me!

Kevin said...

Always glad you blogged.

But, what are these cuticles you talk about?

Boyd K said...

I too am glad :)
Shouldn't there be a catchy sign about "instructions" and "Enjoy your hopenchange" in there somewhere? Maybe Oleg suggest a tax related instructions graphic with some spin on Barracks OLogO

The next time somebody complains about the government: give them a slip of paper with the following information:

COMPLAINT DEPT.
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

Then explain to them that: the angrier the letter, the quicker the response!
