Christmas is over!

The bestest part, of course, is Christmas dinner! In the old days it was the presents, but now that I am mature and responsible, (and overweight) the dinner takes center stage. And the bestest part of dinner is dessert (or "pudding" for you Brits out there). More pics are coming laer when I get back to my own computer tomorrow, but just to start you off, dessert originated in South Hackensack at the pastry shop. I was greeted by this lovely creature, and presented with Italian (real New Jersey Italian) delights like this.

The main course is meat!

Followed by a cake made from these!

Remember Brandy?

Well, he is alive and well. He slimmed down and got dressed up for Christmas. Click here for a photo.

The Crazies are out in force!

I have a theory. You know how about half the population goes crazy when there's a full moon. It's true, just ask any cop. Well, I am convinced that the other half goes just as crazy when there is NO moon - like today.

Although I can easily shoot down my own theory with the fact that Christmas is at the end of the week. So many peeps are just Christmas crazy. I am staying inside.

Bizzy, bizzy

Everyone is spending the last of their 2006 budget on computer equipment keeping me occupied this week. It is a little crazy, but manageable. Besides, I can use the extra cash as always!

What am I going to do with that child?

He thinks he is king of the hood these days. Little tough guy. I hate it when he comes home and his nose is all wounded with claw marks from some neighborhood territorial dispute.

Wow! Closed!

The Health Department has cracked down on my local Olive Garden because peeps were getting sick! That is one of our favorite eat out places here in the culinary heart of the Midwest!

I have been shamed

My niece, Kelly, just yelled at me saying I don't update this blog enough. She is right. I shall endeavor to post more frequently.
The Christmas parties have started. I have one at 1:00PM today and another later in the evening. I will probably give that one a miss because I have other things I have to get done before I leave for NJ on Thursday afternoon.

New way to the Airport

A friend of mine turned me on to a real bargain. Instead of paying the $9 a day to park my car in the open long-term parking lot at the airport, I am going to park in my spot inside the garage downtown and take a shared-ride limo! I tried this out over Thanksgiving break and it worked like a charm! I payed a shared-ride rate ($22 RT + tip), but ended up with the entire stretch Lincoln to myself.

Kittay is getting fed up with this cold WX and so am I. Just think, it is only the beginning of December and we have months of this left to endure! Maybe a little snow for Christmas would be a nice touch.

No snow for you!

The rest of the Midwest got slammed with WX. Chicago got slammed as well as the rest of Illinois. Indiana, however, is just freezing to death, but snow-free at the moment. We did have some flooding, but nothing the rivers can't handle.

Katie needs a new car right away. Anyone got sixteen grand to give her?
