Brrrrrrr


While yesterday was spent wading through the detritus of the holiday-today will be spend with the Super Sucker. When the sun is shining, as it is today, there are vicious looking dust demons living in and around every nook and cranny in the house. Of course it helps that it's 12 degrees outside with a wind chill of -5(cause I needed to know that to complete my day) which means I have no desire to venture out for any reason or any thing. To complete the cycle of crazy weather in the northeast, it seems that by Saturday we will be up around 55. Lets see-everyone with bronchial pneumonia, raise your hands. Last night on the news, in an effort to make you fraidy scared (medical term) they said the Norovirus is making its way out here to the Island pretty darn quick. Nothing gets the hair up on my neck like the threat of a lengthy bout of praying to the porcelain gods.
It's day three of January and I'm sick of politics already with nearly a whole year to go. Gad! Does anyone think they may decide to actually discuss any of the issues in the near future. It's tabloid politics and fear mongering-that's all the press is interested in and they claim that's all we're interested in. Obviously they didn't ask me. I don't care about that crap-I care about what the person is going to do to lift us out of this gigantic black hole that this administration has dropped us into.
Well, there it is for today. I have located some redwork I put away in Dec. and plan to work on that later while I watch a movie or something. I have my Christmas movie bonanza that I haven't watched yet. Maybe I'll watch "Bell, Book, and Candle". There's a scene where the stars are standing on the observation deck of the Chrysler building that reminds me of a lovelier time in the world. People without a care, in love, enjoying the dawn in a skyscraper in Manhattan. There's something I can't imagine anymore. But I can remember.
Hope your day is warmer than mine and peaceful.

I just heard on Sirius radio that it is 0ยบ in NY and ½ of the DJs are out sick. What a way to start 2008. We even had a freeze last night. Stay bundled up --who cares about dust bunnies?

Well I for one love the new look of your blog. Very bright and clean. And I too am ALREADY tired of the politics. But I like the fact that many are dropping out. heehee.
Renting movies sounds like the perfect way to avoid all the tv coverage.
Please writers, come back!

I love the new do!! At first I thought, "Where am I?!!"

I am sort of sick of politics, but I am so happy to start the end of the W/Cheney regime, that I am practically beside myself. I am an Obama Mama!!
