Geez, I overslept this morning and then started the day off thinking it was Wednesday 'til nearly 9:00 o'clock. Now I'm acclimated. Sort of. I'm still getting over my disappointment that it's only Tuesday.
I finished my Christmas shopping yesterday. Yippee! Now if I can manage to get it all wrapped and delivered in time, I'll be in good shape.
I was summarily summoned to a family function tonight, and then unceremoniously unsummoned. Apparently, someone was afraid there might be a little target practice if the whole clan was gathered together so they called it off and decided a few smaller gatherings might be a better idea. Works for me.
One of my most adorable blogger friends sent me some of the yummiest coffee yesterday. You know who you are, dear heart, and thank you again.
Led Zeppelin lives! I'd love to have seen their recent reunion at London's O2 Arena. That must have been nothing short of awesome. I heard that Robert Plant's vocals are still largely unintelligible, but who cares? Zeppelin is an experience, all of its parts making up an unmatchable whole.
'Long Road Out of Eden,' the Eagles's first CD in 20 years, ain't half bad, either. It's a somewhat different sound, in my opinion, but it's supposed to be different.
The temperature here yesterday broke all records. It was an unprecedented 73 degrees. In the middle of December. Something's up, because this isn't natural. I don't know if an asteroid is pointed at us or what, but something's up.
If it's Tuesday, which my calendar says it is, you know what that means: proof of your poetic prowess is due. How about a limerick on the topic of aging rockers? That should be fun.
TWISTED LINGUISTICS is examining these Words Gone Wild today. The diagnosis is clear, and the prognosis is dire. If you all can define any of them without damaging your brains or losing your eyesight, please do.
