and by the way

while i'm off work, blogging may be spotty. not being on the computer every day will do that to you.

counting down...

after today, i have only a day and a half left of work before i'm off for what dartmouth calls 'the winter break'. they give us the week between christmas and new years off PAID (it actually saves them money to have us all off even if they pay us for it). and because of the way the holidays fall this year, we end up getting a couple extra days off-yeeha!

anyway, my sisters arrived today for christmas, and i can't wait until i get to spend more time with them.

definitely in the top five on my celebrity exception list

i love this man.

say it loud

by the way, on the back window of the subaru i am now sporting what is likely the only foghead sticker in the upper valley. it came with the latest kfog live from the archives cd. i was totally jazzed to find it inside.

leaked trump memo

Re: The Forehead

Okay, toupee, we've put this nicely, and now we're going to get all harsh: move it the fuck back. The forehead is getting pissy. The eyebrows are already mobilizing to rip your shit right off the scalp, so don't even try occupying any more territory on top of The Trump. The forehead wanted us to tell you to fuck off but we're giving you one last warning. So kick it back a notch or Trump's head is gonna look like fuckin' Baghdad in springtime.

Be a person of peace and love

i found out this morning that the mother of a friend of mine passed away recently. although i hadn't seen her in many, many years, i can still recall that she was an amazing, positve, loving person. she was so wonderfully kind and generous and creative-i truly wish everyone i know could have met her and experienced her personality once in their life.

simple, yet fun (via former desktopian, koliver)

sick of the holiday music yet?

here's a link to streaming audio of holiday music from kfog. (thanks sarah!)

thankfully, i've hardly heard any christmas music so far this year-it's one of the benefits of no longer working in retail. the disadvantage, of course, is that i can't get gifts or ornaments at 40% off retail.

virtual snowglobe

this is pretty cool. you can just watch what the folks in the globe are doing (snowboarding, shoveling, skating) or you can click on the globe and shake it up just for kicks. knock yourself out.

best ever

today, i have been im-ing with my sister in sf. for no good reason at all, we've never done it before this. first, we had a long conversation about various subjects, and since then we've just been sending occasional random thoughts back and forth. the best part was about 1/2 hour ago when we were both laughing so hard we were reduced to tears, over some silly spelling mistakes. it's the next best thing to laughing until you cry in person.

i can't WAIT until my family is here for christmas.

not allowed at the gas pump

cellphones, cigarettes, large amounts of hairspray

chunky donations

while chunky soup may not be the most nutritious thing one could eat, it's better than nothing. at this link, you can vote for your favorite football team and when you do, a can of soup will be donated to a hunger relief charity during the next year.

a brief but important announcement
