Drive-by Post

I promise a better post, with pictures and everything, soon. In the last 10 days I've:
  • knit a third Toto
  • knit most of a second Mitered Hanging Towel
  • put up and decorated my Christmas tree
  • decided to send store-bought cards instead of hand-made ones
  • done about half my Christmas shopping
  • loaded a whole bunch of Christmas songs onto my iPod
  • convinced my cats that they could both sleep in the bed with me
  • survived our first real snowfall and minor ice storm of the season -- although I did fall down twice on the way to bus the morning after the ice storm
  • replaced my worn-out YakTrax (this was directly related to the previous point)
  • slept through the "you're truly old" medical procedure (in other words, I had a colonoscopy. I slept through it -- yay for Demerol! -- and my colon's good to go for the next 10 years.)
  • been thrilled that the jerk governor -- I'd call him worse, but this is a G rated blog -- of my home state was arrested. According to the latest poll, his approval rating is at 8%. Even before this, about a month ago, it was 13%. He's been despised for quite some time, and I doubt many people are surprised that he was this corrupt. I think lots are amazed that he actually got caught though. And they've named a drink after him!
  • oh -- and I went to work practically every day!

You've done a lot. I must say though--how much convincing did the cats really need? Ha ha!

And woah, IL's gov! I was listening to an interview with the Lt. Gov and he says he hadn't spoken to the gov in over a year! How is that possible? Yikes!

I was just looking at the calendar wondering if it would be worth putting up/ decorating a tree this year since it will require great effort to find which box has the ornaments and we'll be gone for a few days over the holiday anyways. Hmmmmm...

Practically every day.... having gone to work "practically every day" this week myself, I can appreciate the nuance!

I'll raise a toast to Gov. Blog and his impending impeachment (please oh please).
I'll raise two when he's incarcerated.
For that... I'd even drink the drink named after him!

How in the world did you convince the cats to sleep in the bed with you? Or maybe it was because it got really cold? ;-)
