Way to go dude!
Or should I say Dudes!
:o) I thought this was really interesting:
It's the lycos top 50 most searched terms for the year.
If you can get over the feeling of wanting to hurl when you see that the #1 searched term this year has been........Paris Hilton......UGH!
the rest of the list is sortof interesting.
Well...some of it anyway.

Woo Hoo!!!!

So the mail came this morning when I was going between doors carrying crap down from the apartment project from hell...when I saw the mailman coming up the street. So I ran inside and grabbed ten bucks out of my wallet and when he handed me my mail I handed it to him and said, "Happy Holidays" He seemed kinda surprised at it...he's new on the route as are most of the neighbors...I wonder if most of them stiffed him.

Anyway...Whether it was the ten bucks or not...3 or 4 hours later when I was making another round of trips from the third floor to the basement...he was driving by in his truck and pulled up into my driveway and got out to hand me the package I've been waiting very impatiently for...

I now own both Dick Proeneke videos and the book they culled from his journals (That amazon cut me off on last night because I've 'previewed' too many pages) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D

Well...ok....I still haven't opened the wasn't addressed to me...and we all know that opening someone else’s mail is a federal offense punishable by something something something. So I guess I'll be waiting for the company and the candles later this evening...but little does she know that means I'll also have company as I sit and watch the video tonight (That we've already seen umpteen times on pbs but this will be longer and uninterrupted by their dang fundraising)...and I might just have to put the other one in after that neither one of us has seen before. And then there are always toothpicks to prop the eyelids open as I sit in bed and read from the gospel according to Dick.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body
thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO' what a

Just a quick update as Rej and I are both quite busy these days...
I am working my buns off on my house trying to get the apartment fixed up so I can rent it again.
Rej is under contract on a new home and is working her (and her husbands) buns off trying to get it ready to put on the market Wednesday!

Much craziness!
But it's all good.
Great even!
