For the next twelve days I will give you the item for that day from the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” along with the gift I would like to receive. You will see quickly that mine may not always be material, but are just as strange…
Song: Nine Ladies Dancing
Paulie: Nine Ladies Dancing (now that’s what I am talking about!)
And Then Darren Said “Let There Be Light”
My soon-to-be over the hill friend Darren came by the house and fixed up that light fixture which drove me to frustration Monday. Now I can see my wardrobe again, Holy Christ I have no fashion sense!
Thanks buddy. I’ll be glad to return the favor, just let me know when you need some code written or a self-deprecating joke. I am not a great electrician but I am really good at doing those…
It Was Beginning To Feel A Lot Like Wednesday
Last night I sat down and was ready to watch another episode of Top Chef on Bravo. I was flummoxed when I saw that Top Chef wasn’t being shown. Then I realized that last night was Tuesday and not Wednesday. D’oh!
I guess I have just been jonesing for my weekly fix of Gail Simmons.
Last week I went to Amazon.com to buy a Christmas gift for someone special (that would be me). The gift could have been bought locally but I didn’t want to pay sales tax and I figured with my illustrious Amazon Prime status I’d get free shipping. Amazon wasn’t selling the product and the only vendor selling it through Amazon wanted $50 than I could get locally. I wound up going to another online vendor, NewEgg, and making the purchase; where I received slower delivery free.
Then yesterday I logged onto Amazon only to see that they now sell the product. Rats!

I really like this picture.
It’s the only one of the dozen or so shots that I took of this sheet of stamps that I like.
There are times I wonder about those to whom I give money. Yesterday I received the following from the High Museum
Your membership with the High Museum of Art has recently lapsed and I wanted to be in touch one more time before we remove you from the Museum’s mailing list. You are a good friend to the Museum and your involvement is important to us.
and then a few minutes later
Thank you for your involvement with the High Museum of Art in 2006. Your membership expires at the end of March, and we hope you will renew early for another full year of benefits. Come celebrate all that membership offers in the year ahead.
One these must be wrong…
