Grrrrrr... Grrrrrr. Grrrrr. GrrrrrrrVAROOOOOM

Urgh. my car started. Sorta. Barely. I'm NOT happy.
Went to the "urgent care" - met a nice young oriental Vampire, got a bit of blood removed, then went to have some breakfast. Nice breakfast, but right before I got to the restaurant the "check engine" light came on my dashboard - oh shit I really don't need that. Really.

I should go to Sears and have them check that, as well as have them check the antifreeze and get them to sell me a oil-stick engine heater and maybe a battery charger thingy.

And now my computer is doing some strange crap - which makes me think I may have to do a virus scan... *sigh*

Hello, Dr. Nick

Well, good news for me. Saw Dr. Nick last nite and he said everything is going well. Apparently my eating and drugs and stuff regimine is working and I'm doing better than usual. He even said I do NOT have to give up red meat entirely - which is a good thing because I just CANT. I'm a carnivore at heart.

Continued very very cold - I hope my car starts this morning.

Put some more cash into the old credit union. Hope to have enough to remodel the bathroom in a few years. If I can keep from spending it....

Take care - stay warm.

The cold... it hurts

I hope my lime tree will be ok.
I want it near the window, but the windows are a bit leaky and I don't want it to die from cold. Citrus trees do, you know.

I am not about to set off a smudge pot in my livingroom, however.

I'm thinking about maybe bringing it upstairs for a few days until Canada gets my letter about their excessive gift. It's a few degrees warmer up here than down in the front - and might do well for the poor lil' thing.

Dear Canada

Hi there Canada! Long time no chat. *Wave to Babzy*

We need to talk, Canada. You're being wayyyy too generous, and it's kind of embarassing to have to say this, but... please stop.

The massive, enormous cold front is just too much, Dear. I know you want to share your rich bounty of frigid, arctic air that is less than 5 below zero F, but, really, it's just too much - we don't know each other all that well.

Please don't take this wrong, Canada - we love you. But... this is far, far too large of a gift for us to accept. The thought is appreciated, and we know that this was a gesture of great affection from you, but please.. TAKE IT BACK.

Freezingly yours,
Sewmouse

One Week

Ok, so I missed 8. I was busy, eh?

But there's only 7 more days of Bushit to deal with before the chimp is gone. Maybe things will change, maybe not.... but that despicable cretin will be gone.

Been a busy weekend here at the house. Even though I was mostly snowed in, I managed to get a lot done. I like that.
