spoke too soon

It snowed Saturday night and last night. Brr. Guess we won't be enjoying the new outdoor furniture again tonight.

We're sorry, State of Colorado. We should not have tempted Fate and Mother Nature with the purchase of outdoor-use only items.

please, someone tell me how

How is Seventh Heaven motivation while working out? I mean, I love me some crappy television... but that is the CRAPPIEST of ALL THE CRAP.

Who knows. Maybe people hate to watch The Food Network when I'm there first. Emeril is a little annoying.

ick, wal-mart.

For those of you keeping track, I still hate Wal-mart. I still don't shop there. I haven't blogged about it in a long time (why didn't I have a Wal-mart tag until today?) I will admit that I do take my empty shopping bags to recycle there, and will continue to until someone tells me if/how they are making money from it.

When I read this article, I didn't know what to think.

"Who needs the money more? A disabled lady in a wheelchair with no future, whatsoever, or does Wal-Mart need $90 billion, plus $200,000?" he asked.

Well, of course they don't need it. I don't want them to have any more money either, but:

Wal-Mart spokesman John Simley, who called Debbie Shank's case "unbelievably sad," replied in a statement: "Wal-Mart's plan is bound by very specific rules. ... We wish it could be more flexible in Mrs. Shank's case since her circumstances are clearly extraordinary, but this is done out of fairness to all associates who contribute to, and benefit from, the plan."

Legally speaking, Wal-Mart has a right to the money. Still-- ick:

Jim Shank, 54, is recovering from prostate cancer, works two jobs and struggles to pay the bills. He's afraid he won't be able to send their youngest son to college and pay for his and Debbie's care.

tis the season

Have you had your Hot Cross Buns yet?

I've had two just today. I suspect I will be responsible for consuming the remaining 7 as well, due to Joe's irritating admirable willpower.

five effing years.

How has your life changed in the past five years? I'm in a new state, with a new significant other, and new job #1,223 since 2003.

Still-- I don't know REAL change. REAL, soul-altering, watched someone suffer and die change. I have no concept of having been deployed, come home and been deployed again.

Five years. I feel sick.
