Me and the Missus are not only prepared for the upcoming winter months, we are also prepared for Thanksgiving. I started by dying my hair orange. The official title is “Cinnamon Brown,” but there’s a whole lotta’ cinnamon, and not much brown.
Just to diffuse the bomb before it goes off, this was as close to the Missus‘ appearance as I could manage. Yahoo Avatars is a fickle beast, and I did my best to capture the look of someone who looks nothing like anyone else. That’s the price you pay when you appreciate originality. If it looks like her or not is up to the Missus herself, but I must say that the Avatar is pretty hot. My avatar looks almost exactly like me, minus the look of a man who hasn’t slept or seen the sun in weeks.
Three days of work this week, then five straight days of vacation. It couldn’t have come at a better time, really. We’ve both been run through the proverbial ringer at our collective places of employment, and a few days of rest, relaxation and tofurkey is just what we need to recharge.
This weekend, I spent some time with friends in the far northern reaches of the state. I had a good time. Apart from that, I’ve been relatively worthless; opting to watch way too much football and allow my page get completely overrun with BLAM! It’s sad, really.
As I said, I’m working three days this week. When I’m not making meth in my cubicle or socializing with family and acquaintances, I’ll be busy compiling the best comments of 2005 (click here for the best comments of 2004). It’s a rough job, but someone has to do it, and there’s too much outsourcing in this country as is. The CDP never takes a vacation, except for when I do. I have a ton of stuff that is still on the way for the second half of SWEEPS MONTH, and I hope you enjoy it.
Speaking of which, I’ve been very happy with the traffic this month, and I wish there was something I could do to thank each and every eight of you (zing!). Last year, I told people that I would send them all a dollar, but I didn’t feel like breaking a five (zong!). But seriously folks, thanks for hanging out here. If it weren’t for you, I would have gotten an actual writing job years ago (zoing!).
So, what’s everyone’s plans for Thanksgiving? Where are you going? What are you doing? Lay it on me, and start the conversation in the comments section. Personally, me and the Missus are heading back up nort’ to mingle with the respective families, suffer inoperable amounts of road rage and wear fruity sweaters. I can’t wait.
