You said it.

Oh... and did I mention it's all Boston City school kids today?

And it's brutally cold today to top it off.

Yeah, Ed...I was out in it this morning on my trip to the senior center to give them my Dad's card game money. Was practically in tears on the trip home (which is the northbound leg, into the wind).

Standing on the train platform at 6 am, waiting for the subway car was almost enough to make me call in and quit.

day 3 at the gym. arms are hurting, lost some flexibility i guess. getting used to the treadmill, trying to keep at 7.5 mile per hour.....need to go that speed to get my 2 mile time to 16:00. failing though....but not allowing myself to go below 6mph on it...treadmills are tough!

at least by weight training+treadmill i *should* be able to lose the weight rather fast. i weigh 195, and only really want to lose 15 pounds. 180 would be nice.

Long freakin' day yesterday. Ugh.

Dealing with literally hundreds of snotty high school musicians for that many hours in a row tends to make one question all the decisions that have led you to this point in life.

Went out to a bar last night with the guys I was working with, but didn't hang long, and rolled out of there pretty quickly. Just wasn't feeling it. I was too tired and cranky to have a great time.

Staff Holiday Party at work today. Hmmm... Always an awkward, socially uncomfortable time. Hopefully it will be mercifully short.

Working Saturday and Sunday... then I'm pretty much free until New Years Eve. Might put in a short day or 2 at work next week... but we'll see how I feel.

Company Christmas party tonight. Those are usually pretty good.

We've got to hit some ODST over the Christmas break...

I knew one girl like that in high school. She played French Horn. And completely ****ed it up at our school's talent show but kept going back and trying to correct the notes she missed. It was incredible.

also french horn is the snobbiest instrument ever and i'm embarrassed to have ever played it

We prefer to call it the "horn", these days, actually.

Took my friend to the mall for lunch because he wanted to buy his wife a gift. That was really, really stupid.

And these are all kids from the Boston high school for the performing arts... so they have a double obnoxious factor going.

I'm kind of "over" the holiday season already. Can't it just all be done already?

Ditto.

I came away with a couple of funny books from the "Yankee Swap" game.

There's like...a foot of snow on the ground already. Guess I better get out there and clear this junk out. Fortunately I purchased a snow blower yesterday in preparation for this.

Well, I cleared it out, but it's already built up pretty high again. Once more unto the breach...

Hasn't starting snowing in Boston yet. Weird.

Heading home. I'll probably run into some on the way.

i made it home okay. the roads were bad, almost hit a deer like 100m from my driveway. i beeped the horn to make it get out of the way, but the deer slipped on the ice and did a epic-fail faceplant.

Ugh... Here we go.

Snow... my old nemesis... we meet again!

Well... I don't think this was the storm the media predicted for us. Doesn't seem all that bad here. Bad enough though, I guess... a couple of hours of clean up ahead of me.

Gotta go to work tonight. That part won't be fun.

I have 2 feet as well. What does that have to do with snow?



Canadian Brass Band here tonight. Incredibly easy.

5 chairs. One mic. (For talking.)

Yawn.

Even though I'll probably come into work tomorrow for at least a brief appearance, my vacation starts tonight when this shift ends as far as I'm concerned.

Just made plans to spend Christmas Eve at a party... with M.... in Cambridge... at a fetish shop.

Uh,.. yeah... I have no idea either. Should be a... memorable way to spend the holiday this year, if nothing else...

2-day BMW performance driving school.

Looks like a blast.
