Random Tuesday Thoughts
I work for a hardware/software company whose product is supposed to make the internet experience better. Really? Because right now my internet experience sucks! Dial up internet would be a better experience than what I’m getting right now.
We have discovered that our cat has once again chewed through the electrical cord to our battery backup unit on our home computer. This is the third time it has happened, so either the cat does have nine lives or that scene in the Christmas Vacation movie is false and cats don’t parish so easily.
The Jim Carey version of The Grinch was on television last night. Am I the only person on the planet that finds that movie creepy and disturbing? If I was a child, I would have had nightmares for sure. On the note of things that freak me out – so do clowns, Tele-Tubbies, as do pretty much any member of
We put up and decorated our Christmas Tree on the weekend. For the first time in 20+ years, J assisted in the process! Apparently miracles do happen because apart from carrying the tree up from the basement and telling me that “you missed a spot” when I’m decorating it, he actually set it up when I was out running errands. I’m still wondering what his motive is…
My MIL called last night to ask if we were coming for Christmas dinner. I don’t quite understand what she was thinking. They live 5 minutes away and we haven’t missed a Christmas dinner EVER and besides, I didn’t think skipping out on it was actually an option.
On the topic of Christmas dinner, the MIL has announced that she hasn't decided whether she will be serving turkey this year - it might actually be either goose or duck in lieu of the turkey. After hearing that, I have officially revoked my RSVP until such time as I know what's on the menu. Call me ungrateful, but I refuse to eat anything that has been shot by my redneck brother-in-law. The last time I did, I nearly broke a tooth on the pellets remaining in the carcass.
