@2PacksAday,
Very Happy

(This happened AGAIN just the other day! We have a new fancy-pants Dyson, and I've been marveling at how amazing it is compared to our old vacuum, and then it stubbornly wouldn't pick up this piece of lint and I was like great, it's messed up already? This went on for a while. Then I noticed it was off. Pfff.)

Wearing: pajama pants....I still can't believe I'm actually wearing them, but since I have become a....an unwell person....sometimes it's just easier.
Hearing: Mr. Poppers Penguins.
Eating: Ham sammich.
Drinking: Brandy, not much....for medicinal purposes of course...slight head cold....straight out of the bottle.
Feeling: Warm and toasty inside {see aforementioned drinking section}
Doing: Was playing an old pc game
Looking forward to: Getting back to my current chore. *
Wanting: More brandy, I'm totally out.


* Meanwhile back at city hall.....our storage room had become something you might see on one of those hoarder shows, as most of it is old files, that can be tossed/burned, I dove into them. I've been working on them for about two weeks now, a great deal of it can be pitched without much thought....receipts from 1985, job applications from the early 90's etc....but there is a lot of interesting files as well, many of a historical nature....when this was built or bought, that type of thing. Since I am somewhat of a town historian, I am often asked of when, where, who, and whereas before I mostly had to guess or give an approximate answer, now I can give a dead on answer....well once I'm done digging, then making a "timeline".

I have found several personal letters to the city, some I know about the situation, some I didn't....the last mayor was in office a total of about 22 years {we think}, and at one time was also the city clerk, so he remembers a great deal of things, just from being there....and I can ask him, hey what the hell was this all about. I usually work on these old files after hours, because it is so hard to keep people from picking the papers up to take a look....some of the papers I have found are very personal, so nobody will see them but me.

@2PacksAday,
Interesting!

Hope the brandy helped with the head cold.

I'm wearing pajama pants too if that makes you feel better. (Usually I do a little computer stuff after I first wake up, then shower and attack the day, coming off of a four-day weekend there was lots and lots of catch-up and I haven't reached the showering stage yet.)

OK so to be sporting, the rest of it:

Hearing: ---
Eating: Nothing, but had leftover homemade carrot cake for breakfast, dang that's good.
Drinking: Nothing.
Feeling: A tad bit harried. A tad bit sore. But also happy when I think of the truly epic yard work operation yesterday -- we have the whole entire yard tamed, if only temporarily, for the first time in a while. And the kid not only was not distracting, but was actually really helpful! She's getting to be almost as strong as I am. She had fun wielding an ax to chop up recalcitrant honeysuckle roots. Wild honeysuckle is a truly evil beast.) (Note to ehBeth, yes she was careful. Smile)
Doing: Catching up on the computer (email, work, Christmas shopping, misc.) plus this.
Looking forward to: Seeing all those yard bags and yard debris gone (should be picked up today, a little worried that they'll see how much it is and say "oh hell no.")
Wanting: To get 2Packs more brandy (plus for him to get all better).

Fascinating, 2Packs..

Wearing: my navy thick bathrobe, horrible looking but comfy bright pink clogs
Eating: just finished a potato/bread crumb/egg/spicy sardine fishcake with sweet pickle mayo; still hungry, thawing another one.
Drinking: second cup of coffee
Feeling: faintly ambitious. I have a volunteer tree I need to dig out since it volunteered in the wrong place. Probably too late to transplant but I might try it. There's always another volunteer (Chilopsis linearis, aka desert willow), once a year or so.
Doing: morning routine - letting the dog out, reading my news sources, responding to dog nose by feeding dog, reading football news, responding to dog by letting her out, reading a2k, feeding self
Looking forward to: faintly looking forward to going through some paperwork with an eye to trashing
Wanting: To get 2Packs more brandy (plus for him to get all better).

Wearing: Blue jeans, big black cowboy boots, that are about a half size too small, still a growing boy I guess...black t-shirt, black cowboy hat....long coat is laying on the bench by the door.
Hearing: One of those American Idol type shows...no idea which one.
Eating: Charred cow flesh from Dairy Queen, then some apple pie...she says I have to throw it out tonight, so I'm knawin on it in spurts.
Drinking: Sprite.
Feeling: Insecure, I met a salesman from Iowa yesterday, she sounded really funny....during the conversation she pointed at each of my staff members and said....."I can understand you, you, and you, but I can't follow a word he's saying", they told her, it was the drawl, and after awhile you get used to it.....so all day today, everyone was talking realllllly slow to me....peanuts!
Doing: Was reading some of my old posts....did I really write four paragraphs about my watch....and some of Gus's old posts....he was truly funny.

Wearing: Straw hat, cargo shorts, grey t-shirt, tennis shoes....bomber jacket. Yeah I look like a dip-****.
Hearing: Top 200 songs of the 90's, on the Youtube.
Eating: Turkey, and a bit of ham, from our annual seniors citizens dinner...leftovers.
Drinking: Hennessy, straight up of course....I've never tried Cognac before, can't say I was missing much.
Feeling: Pretty ding dang good....just naturally, not by this weird wineish....French whiskey?....stuff....3 slugs of anything will not affect me....I'm from moonshine territory.
Doing:
In the mid 80's HUD....{Housing and Urban Development} came into my little town and revamped 28 houses, about 250k worth of work....roofs, siding, paint...etc. Three houses were so bad, they were taken down, and replaced with mobile homes. I found all the old files in our storage, and I've been sifting thru them....lot's of pictures from 25 yrs ago. It's sad that most of these homes that were spruced up, remained in the hands of the same people/families, and now are back to square one.....in terrible shape. Trying my best not to go off on some Mr. conservative rant.
