Why I haven’t written (boring excuse #1):  I came down with a horrid 3-week cold that knocked me off schedule and made me extremely tired.   Now it seems to have been taunting me with a rebound cold over Thanksgiving weekend.  Sniff. Sniff.

I could go on and on about how tired I’ve been.  How boring!

I stopped writing about the 3rd class meeting of my winter course.  I was in class, not feeling well at.all. and my instructor offered the boob sitting next to me a job.  Basically.  He asked for a resume.  I found myself wildly jealous.  WHY???  Well, I like this instructor, I like being a computer geek.   I pick this stuff up so quickly.  I’m sitting next to a guy, who can use the “Pen tool” with great fineness…and yes, I’m still envious of that also.  I guess I just wanted my instructor to ask me for a resume.  It is a wild/crazy/stupid fantasy.  I know.  And there is nothing rational about it.  And there is nothing rational about thinking about how upset I was for a week.  Or two.  I’m over it now, but I’ve had to do a little magic with the attitude adjusting for the rest of the class.

One sign that I’m not a totally lost cause is one of the homework assignments (which was a similar exercise to the last class WTF) was much easier this time around.  I was concerned that my retention in the class wasn’t what it should be, but I guess I’m absorbing what we’re doing.  It’s just hard to tell, because by 10 o’clock, I drive my brain dead self home and there isn’t much left of me for the rest of the week.  I have been sick though.  If I can just stay healthy for the next 3 weeks, I’ll be a happy camper.

I was hoping that writing would “lube” me up enough to starting writing the holiday letter for the xMas cards.  I think I need some booze.  I need to get just buzzed and all warm inside.  Amaretto. Maybe I’ll stop by the liquor store Friday evening.  It’s either that or go to the gym.  I’ve been promising myself that I would get to the gym this week and it hasn’t happened.  Hmm.

If you’re not happy, “fake it”.  I was listening to a new CD talking about our energy and beliefs.  I think I’ll make a copy of this disc for some family of mine.
I was driving home today and saw an SUV with a bumper sticker that said:  “Stop Global Whining”.   I hate SUV’s.  And I think I hate their owners too.

I’m out-
