I am still trying to get into the Christmas spirit. I used to love Christmas time, even during the many years I was girlfriendless.
This morning I stopped into the Caribou Coffee near my office (note that I have not been dropping in at Joe’s much lately — the lovely Ellen seems to work but one morning a week now. As much as I’d like to support the hood I miss her friendly smile) and bought a Gingerbread Latte and a slice of gingerbread. Do not try this at home, I am a trained coffee drinking professional and would hate for you kids to emulate me just because I look cool. Furthermore, such behavior will have adverse effects upon your waistline.
Dear Major Credit Card Company
Your gesture of raising my credit limit was generous, especially during this spending season. However, if you ever send me another letter containing my name, address, and entire credit card number again I will drop you so fucking fast it will make your head spin. You see the kids today have a name for such stupid behavior, it’s called “enabling identity theft” and I just won’t stand for it. This notice comes from the person whose credit card number you had to change earlier this year because someone made a fraudulent charge using it. Remember me now?

Do we have manatees in Georgia?
Are there any at the aquarium?
Toad In The Hole
Those wacky Brits and there culinary escapades! Every once and a while I am tempted to make something bizarre and last night was one of those times.
A quick stop at le Kroger last evening provided me with all of the missing ingredients to make Toad In The Hole.
btw – I don’t care how good Spotted Dick is supposed to be, that’s one dish I will never attempt to make.
Whatcha Doing For New Year’s Eve?
Made plans yet? I just did. With most of my partying friends now living in the world of parenthood I figured that I’d head out to one of my Safe Places : The EARL. For a mere $12 entrance fee I will be getting to see two of our better local bands, The Selmanaires and Tenement Halls, perform.
If history is any indicator then I will be single and perhaps even attending this solo, therefore The EARL will be a great place to get staggering drunk and then drag my ass home.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – ginger snappin’ — which is my new phrase for lonely, bored, and wish I was someone or somewhere else.
Current Music – Sirius Satellite Radio, Channel 26 playing — “Bang Bang, You’re Dead”
Website Of The Day – The internet is hilarious. All you have to do is type in some word for a domain name, let’s say Gingerbread and someone has parked a website there.
Exercise (b)Log – none
