December 31, 2008

Well, we were going to take trash and recycling to the place in Utica where we do that, then catch a movie.

We got up to snow, the fallen and the falling. We are staying home, playing various versions of handheld games, watching the CSI marathon on Spike!, Duchezz dosing, eating of easily prepared food, petting the pugs, just being.

Tonight we will watch TV, and have promised to stay up at least until it's midnight in London, England. I figure it's a pledge we can keep.

Tomorrow there will be college football, more Nyquil, perhaps knitting and reading. I may update my LibraryThing, or do the Year in Review meme. Post a house "wishlist" for 2009...who knows.

Today my spirit is held together by duct tape and chewing gum. I will make myself some tea, eat a cookie, and try desperately not to think.

Wish me luck.

Today is not a day for thinking. Every time I try, it turns out badly. Today is a day for eating, socializing where we can, and puttering in an effort to beat the thoughts back.

There will be plenty of time to think next year. Or not.

*Hugs* I wish I could do something. Love sending through the cold and snow to you and Ro and the pugs.

we have you both kept in the light of our heart, and hope the next year will be easier on you than this was.

Is it okay that I had to pause and picture you in full Mercenary Soldier Of Fortune Gear (ammo belts and automatic weapon and grenades and a great big knife) saying, "My spirit is held together with duct tape and chewing gum. And I'm all out of chewing gum."?

Granted, this is probably because I just went shopping at Wegmans. On New Year Eve. And I had to resort to yelling, "I am Weasel, minion of Gozer! Take me to the Gatekeeper! I am the Keymaster! Take me to the Gatekeeper! The End Is Near!" to get to the checkouts.

Now, on the other hand, the bakery was so busy that the big hat baker dude himself was on the baguette slicing machine. When he saw my desperate need, as I waved a wedge of brie at him, he tore a baguette in half with his hands and dropped it into the slicer then bagged it up and handed it to me with a wink.

Next time I shall think ahead and bring a chainsaw.

Love you.

I needed the image of you at Wegmans. It actually made me smile.
