I have 666 items in my work e-mail inbox. Each of them needs attention in some way. So, Satan is in my in-box and he's one needy bastard. The entrance to Hell is not bordered by flames, but by spreadsheets and you will be welcomed by the phrase "Please review the following".

I have a chill that will NOT let go. Has living in the south (sorry, but the south starts below Trenton and only gets MORE south...until you hit Florida which is just a bastard child of the South and Northern Jersey) made me soft? Of course, we've had dog and pony shows...erm, presentations to clients...all week long, so there's been little opportunity to dress in hunker-down clothes. And I'll remind myself that I tend to have issues adjusting to the FIRST cold snap of the year, but then I'm fine. Plus, in an attempt to economize at home and celebrate not having a geezerdog, the thermostat is set at a whopping 66 degrees, so except for at night, under the covers, I think I'm just sort of cold all day long.

Being cold burns calories and I'd hang on to that, except that I'm finding that being cold also makes me eat more...so pretty net-net on that front.



Listening and watching this "video", I think I sat and watched it with my head tilted like a cat -- the tiny movements and robotic speech were engrossing. And the punchline was great. Oh, and clearly I AM the cat.

Here's a story to restore your faith in humanity and remind yourself that labels suck, prejudice sucks and when was the last time a teabagger stopped to help you out? I'm not saying it won't happen. But typically, all of the random roadside assistance I've ever gotten as been from people who look like they're barely holding it together, themselves. But they have a clearer understanding of "stick together and help each other" than do so many who have more. We have a little bit more than a lot of people. Let's not forget.

I've been saving this for a post about aggression and how the sexes react differently to how each dresses slightly provocatively and all sorts of other stuff. But in case I lose the link, and in case you're not done with your Christmas shopping yet and stymied as to what to get that special guy:

Seriously? Am I the only one who doesn't think that's an improvement to any guy's wardrobe?

But the enhancement undies? Not so much. Or the two-sizes bigger bra either. Well... maybe as costuming but not for every day. I mean, what happen when you meet Mr/Ms Right, you strip down together and suddenly... disappointment.
