Home (albeit briefly)…

I am supposed to leave this afternoon to go back to DFW for some YuleMass time with Mom n Molls.

of course
the car won’t start
it is raining cats and dogs (and some sleet and water, too)
weather conditions along the I-35 corridor are also expected to be colder by 5-8 degrees, which means ice
there is a winter weather advisory in effect for DFW

Also, I overslept. I am not too too chagrined by this as I was fairly exhausted when I rolled in at 1-something this morning. I didn’t get to actual sleep until 2-something. OTOH, Mister Man had arranged it so that I had still-warm-from-the-dryer flannel sheets and snuggly blankets on the bed for when I crawled out of the shower. That man surely knows how to pamper a girl. 🙂

The Man is in partial favor of me staying in Austin for the nonce – letting him fill the Pathfinder* with pushmoline – so that I can take it to DFW with me tomorrow. I must admit after the travel scramble of yesterday (not bad, just long) I find the idea more than a little appealing.


The Girl got dropped off this morning by her Dad at not-quite seven. Which is far and away better than the “just after six” that had been prophesied. She murmured love at me then staggered upstairs to go back to bed. So did I, for that matter. She is still snoozing, so I am just gonna drink some more coffee, keep an eye on the weather and stretch luxuriously in my office chair. There may be kittie scritchens in there somewhere, as well.


things what are on my mind today – in no particular order

a.) That was an awesome birthday party, austingoddess! And there is more awesome to follow as we are heading into the wilds of Elysium tonight for 80’s dancing goodness!

ii.) Why is it that my cat MUST sleep on the trash bag that is actually intended to catch holiday wrapping detritus?

3.) My car started! Praise all the Critters What Be!

d.) Did I mention the awesome party? with the athene-made cake (or death!) goodness? Please tell me somebody got a picture of it? That may not be the case as we NOMMED pretty quickly.

Also, there were prezzies! to the Prezzies! I keep huffing my new soap for lo, it smells FAB!

Now, if someone could just get me a Hugh Laurie/David Tennant sandwich with me in the middle – my life could be mostly complete*

“complete” in this context means for those few (no more than four….possibly five) hours needed for the aforementioned sandwich; then life would return to its “normal”** run.

** – “We have normality, I repeat we have normality. Anything you still can’t cope with is therefore your own problem.”

Dear Santa…

Dear Santa,

This year I’ve been busy!

In August I broke willful_zephyr‘s X-Box (-12 points). Last month I pushed ambientsidewalk in the mud (-17 points). Last week I ate my brussel sprouts (1 points). Last Thursday I pulled over and changed merovingian‘s flat tire (15 points). In June I ruled Canada as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points).

Overall, I’ve been naughty (-713 points). For Christmas I deserve moldy sandwich an Orbital DEATH RAY!
