I wish I could tell you guys about all the sleep-sapping crap that’s going on in my world, but I can’t. That part of my life used to be just a tiny sliver in the pie chart, and now it’s most of the goddamn pie. Needless to say, a lot of it’s work-related, but not all. Someday, maybe. We’ll see how it goes. Perhaps I can coax Bill Oates out of retirement, and he can tell you? Yeah, probably not.
I will say this much: there’s been a lot of talk about moving within the next few years. It probably won’t happen, but we discuss it a great deal. Some places we’ve contemplated: Cary, NC… Plano, TX… Sioux Falls, SD… Any opinions on any of those towns? There’s a reason behind all of them for us, which I don’t have the energy to go into right now.
Also, I haven’t had a drop of alcohol in three months. Toney still imbibes, but I don’t even really think about it anymore. I believe I’m done. In the past I’ve missed it when I took a break, but not this time. Now I need to start thinking about shedding this flesh parka. Don’t most people lose weight when they cut beer out of their lives? I’m still a swaddling hog.
Oh well. Today I’m going to list some words and phrases that drive me at least a little crazy. Some cause a fully-realized grimace, while others just make me lightly groan in my soul. And I invite you folks to add to the list in the comments. I know we’ve done this before, but there’s value in keeping the list refreshed and up to date. Let’s do it.
I can speak to that
“aigs and biken”
pop (instead of soda)
West “By God” Virginia
I’ll undoubtedly come up with many more over the next couple of days, and will add them to the list. I hope you guys will add yours, as well. Use the comments section.
And I need to go now, and start another week. My nipples are exploding with delight.
See you again soon!
