Only 363 Shopping Days Remain!

For someone who never got into the Christmas spirit this year I certainly have the calendar ready for next year…

Christmas Wrap Up
As I grow older more of my friends are having children. That’s not shocking news, I know. Where I am going with this is that each Christmas I get more cards that contain pictures of the children. Am I the only one who tries to see his friends in the faces of children? You know, does the child look more like the father or the mother? I can’t be the only one who does this, am I?

Hello Caffeine My Old Friend
It’s a day off from work, so today I find myself in a (surprisingly) empty Joe’s Coffee Shop. I’ve not had coffee since Friday, so I’m ready for a big cup of coffee.

The weekend was rather rough because I was fighting off a cold that started either late Thursday or Friday morning. The illness seems to be mostly gone, at least I felt well enough to go out and run the Christmas Day Black Sheep hash yesterday.

O Holy Pants
Damn! When I started doing my long walks from the midtown to my car I knew eventually that I would ruin some jeans from wear and tear. I just assumed that it would take a much longer time than it has. This morning I picked up the jeans I wore last Friday and found out that I had worn a hole in them. So today one of my tasks is to purchase some new jeans. I was really hoping to put this off for a while (read “until I lost some weight”, but I need to wear pants, at least society tells me so…

There’s A Whole Lotta Breakin’ Goin’ On
About ten CDs away from finishing the 192kbps re-ripping project my CDROM drive in my laptop stopped recognizing CDs. Perhaps the last thing I considered when I started this project was that I would break my CDROM drive (with the laptop one month out of warranty).

In case you haven’t shopped for replacement CDROM drives for laptops (which I hadn’t either) they ain’t cheap; that doesn’t even take installation into consideration. Fuckity Fuck Fuck Fuck!

Since I don’t lug that laptop around much any longer (hence the purchase of the iBook last July), I may consider buying an external drive in order to save some cash.

News Of The Weird
I won’t pilfer too much stuff to put in this blog but this was just too comical to pass up. Someone posted the following on the Atlanta group of LiveJournal at 2:19am this morning

i ahve a friend who live in conyers who really needs his house cleaned, preferably by 9 am monday morning. yea i know its short notice. the cleaner will be rewarded with a free tattoo or piercing of his or her choice and $30 cash. 🙂 any takers?

I think the tattoo should read “I cleaned a house and all I got was this damn tattoo (and $30 cash).”

Yeah, I know that mocking others’ posts is not very nice, but I have 363 days to get back onto Santa’s “Nice” list.

And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – okay, happy to have the day off from work
Current Music – some Easy Listening music being piped throughout the coffee shop
Website Of The Day – Looking for some great apps for that new computer that Santa dropped off on Christmas? Browse over to Softpedia, drill down to the appropriate Operating System and download to your heart’s content.

If you ever want a quick glance of the sites I’ve picked for my Websites Of The Day, you can check them out on, my user name is InsideThePerimeter (go figure), and they are all tagged as “blogged.”

Exercise (b)Log – short hash yesterday
