Listatic Tuesday


  • Last week provided weather that I was not fond of.  One, because it seems way to early in the season to be dealing with temps hovering in the low twenties and two, because ice came.  Bring me all the snow you want – I hate ice.  Walking on it is a killer as I’ve had my fair share of slipping and falling.  Driving on it is insane but that’s because other people are driving on it too and are not the brightest crayons in the box.  Boo ice, boo.
  • My Michigan friends (I’m calling you guys that until you don’t live there any more) came to visit one last time before their baby makes her debut in January.  We spent time with our large group of friends and totally molested Mel’s baby belly.  We were all screams when the baby started making waves against the palms of our hands.  I think it’s possible we might have scared the bambino more than she scared us.
  • My Christmas shopping is complete.  Feels good to know it’s done and wrapped.  My Christmas tree looks so nice with packages under it.  I just hope that our family likes their gifts.  Or are at least great liars.
  • I have a feeling that I’ll be finishing up a knitting project this afternoon with PodMate.  Her knitting expertise will help put on the finishing touches.  I can’t tell  you what it is though.  Another secret.  I’ve got to stop with the secret knitting – it’s killing me.
  • The coffee maker at work bit the dust.  Broke in the wash.  We have a new today thanks to a fabulous co-worker.  After my first couple sips I remarked that the coffee tasted weird.  PodMate took a swig and clarified that it tasted like coffee should taste.  Kind of sucks knowing the machine you’ve drank from for two years made coffee not like coffee should taste.  *sad face*
  • I had the second worst experience at the dentist yesterday.  The worst would be when I was fitted for my permanent porcelain tooth.  But yesterday… oh boy, I was not good leaving the dentist.  I was in pain and embarrassed myself to the max.  When the tooth technician (I’m not sure what you call the person who does the fillings) told me that I was reacting in ways she isn’t used to, I tried to hide it.  Only because I don’t want to be like my DAd at the dentist.  He… how do you say it… makes the people in the lobby fear their cleaning.  Screaming can do that.
  • Tonight, the Louisville Cardinals play in their first bowl game in three years.  I’m excited that the team was able to make it to a bowl  – Coach Strong gets all the credit in my book.  But it reminds me of the bowl game we went to in college.  The Liberty Bowl.  And how after the bowl, we were all snuggled in our hotel room with friends when the fire alarm went off.  When I tried waking the hubs (then the boyfriend) to exit with our friends, he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.  “Burn with me, baby.”  Needless to say, I stayed.  Thankfully it was a false alarm.  Go Cards!
