This is =exactly= what my dog is like.

What’s that saying about knowing who your true friends are when the ice breaks? Well, the ice just broke and Mark is firmly planted on the =other= side.

So much for a white Christmas. By the end of the day of my previous blog, all the snow had melted. It hasn’t snowed (and stuck) since. It’s =supposed= to snow today, and with temperatures below freezing, we’re all expecting to see a blanket of white before the day is out.

As far as Christmas gifts go, I got some pretty good stuff this year. The big exciting thing is that I got 14 DVDs. That’s right, =FOURTEEN=. I have the (new) Stanley Kubrick boxed set (9 films plus a bonus documentary about Kubrick), Baz Luhrman’s Red Curtain Trilogy boxed set (3 films plus a bonus DVD), and David Mamet’s State and Main. Among other gifts were a nice new suitcase (for our family’s trip to England this summer), new jeans, a nice new towel, new boxers (finally!), a bunch of candy (as per usual), and a flying cow (yes, it’s a cow and it has wings. And yes, the wings flap).

Mele Kalikimaka to you and yours!

Unlike Their Lungs

Today’s the day that every smoker in my dorm resolves to quite smoking. That’s right, it’s snowing.

String Of Pearls

I just saw an ad on TV for Tampax Pearl. The spot features a bunch of women with pearl necklaces. I’m sorry, but am I the only one who remembers what a ‘string of pearls’ is slang for?
