This is the time when it’s nice to look back and remember the people we’ve lost in the previous year. This isn’t meant to be a comprehensive list, so feel free to add your favorite dead person of 2008.

Bleh. Back to work today after damn near a week off. Even worse, I have to sit through a meeting. And winter is back again, with 40-50 mph winds, more snow on the way, and just general suckiness. Oh well, at least I have the Twilight Zone Marathon to look forward to.

The dogs are lucky today. Since I don’t have to work, they get to go the park and don’t have to spent the day alone. In fact, I think they get somebody home every day this week as we head into 2009. Assuming there is a 2009, that is. Things are (once again) looking pretty bleak in the Middle East. Oh well, at least gas prices are low.

It’s Sunday, but not a bad one, ‘cuz I took tomorrow off. I have to work Tues, Wed, and Fri, so I figured I owed it to myself to not have to deal with a Monday this week.

The weird weather continues here. It’s supposed to be in the fifties today, and damn near sixty tomorrow. Otherwise, not much going on here, really. Except I hear the post-Christmas sales are outrageous. And here I already have everything I need. Oh well.

Granny’s off to work today (lucky her), so I’m home with the boys. Looks like the holiday shopping season was “dismal” this year. That’s not too surprising, but it does make that big pile of shit Barack Obama’s inheriting in 25 days a little bit higher. I guess I’d better help out and do some online shopping today or something.

Yesterday’s warm weather has put a real dent in our snowpiles here, which, I suppose, is a good thing, since – with over 5 feet of snow already this year – it was getting a little hard to find a place to put the snow.

This has been a long, long, week, but just one more day to get through, and then I’m off until next Tuesday. Looks like we get a little break from the snow today (after another foot or so yesterday and overnight), plus it’s going to be warm today – all the way up to 28. And tomorrow it’s supposed be around 40 and rain. Hopefully we’ll still have a little snow left for x-mas.

Monday, bleh. But at least it’s a short week; I only need to make it through two days. More snow today, they say, but not too much. Depending on which way the wind blows (and it’s blowing at about 30 mph right now, which means it’s a little brisk out there this morning), we might get up to 4 inches by quittin’ time, and then another batch overnight. I might have to get Granny a new shovel for x-mas.
