Still Here

I’m still here, I’m just not doing anything exciting.

I’m pretty well set for Christmas, just a few things left to wrap. As usual, I’m just waiting on Canada Post to finish delivering my gifts. I can get them mailed weeks in advance, and it still a crap shoot if they get there before the 24th. I refuse to use Fed-Ex, since they expect duty to be paid on them, by the people receiving them. And it’s too expensive for me to hand deliver. 🙂

There is snow on the ground, but the weather guy says any snow we get before Christmas will be gone by the end of Christmas Day.

Last night, I went to a step class at the gym. It was fun, and a good workout. I’d like to try and make it each Thursday if I can. I am not running as much, but I’m still trying to run a few miles a week. I do want to do another half marathon next year, just trying to figure out which one.

Anyways, that’s all that is going on. Hope everyone’s Christmas plans are coming together nicely. I’ve gotten into watching reruns of 3rd Rock From The Sun, so I’ll close with a quote from that.

Mary Albright: I think you look distinguished with gray hair.
Dick Solomon: Thank you. I think you would look distinguished with gray hair, too.
Mary Albright: No. When men get gray hair, they look distinguished. When women get gray hair, they look old.
Dick Solomon: When women get breasts, they look sexy. When men get breasts, they look old.
Mary Albright: Good point!

Oh Yeah, It’s Winter

We’ve been getting snow every few days. It’s nice if you can get some sun to dry up the roads the next day. I really, really do not like driving on snow & ice. Call me a wuss, I don’t care.

I’m nearly done shopping for Christmas. I may be able to finish this weekend. I would like to get a tree this weekend too, if we have time. Geoff won’t put up the fake one, he says only LED lights this year.

Tomorrow night (weather permitting) we’ll go to the Parade Of Lights. We don’t know yet when (or if) we’ll make it to Zoo Lights. Really, I’m content to drive around our neighborhood and look at lights. It’s fun enough for me. 🙂

Nothing else is going on. Bible study has wrapped up until January.

In tv news, January will be a great month. The return of Burn Notice, Psych, & Lost! I’m tired of reading the movie news on IMDB, because it seems every other story has the word “remake” in it, and I just cringe. There are a ton of books out there, can’t they adapt them? Why do they have to remake old movies?

Right now, the boys and I are watching Chicken Little (AGAIN!) So I’ll close with a quote from that.

Buck Cluck: I’d like to see the movie they make about you now.
Chicken Little: I just hope they stay true to what really happened.
Buck Cluck: Oh, son. These people are from Hollywood. The one thing they will never do is mess with a good story.
