Mayfly 2004

There doesn’t seem to be a Mayfly Project this year, but I’m going to do it anyway, because I can’t be bothered to write more than 20 words…

Rose Parade. Dangerous apartment. Great job. New house! Missourian rage. Mom visits. New roof. More geek skills. Bush wins. Grass!

Happy New Year!

Love and Luck and Health and Wealth!

Have a very Happy New Year.

(Be careful out there. And don’t do anything I wouldn’t do. *snort*)

Merry Christmas, one and all

Have a very happy secular eggnog-filled day. Or a Merry Christmas. Whichever works.

I have a problem with you.

for as you dream you create the world anew.

Good morning, and happy winter.

Have a blessed and lovely Yule. It’s officially sometime early this morning, I think.

PSA

Look, I know a lot of you are spending a lot of time in parking lots right now. Car to store, store to car. But you’ve got to stop dashing out into the roadway, people. I don’t care if it’s noon or 8pm. Don’t do it.

I swear to you, I’m not braking for the people that leap out in front of my car anymore, unless they’re under six years old. And if I’ve misjudged, I’m hitting the gas. Nerves were one thing, but now I’m just sick of being smacked in the kidneys by my work laptop.

Blue Ornaments?!

This year’s Christmas card from the White House is out. It’s the third (technically, at least fourth - there was one during the debates) in the BarneyCam series, “Where in the White House is Miss Beazley?”

Adorable, and a better story than previous years. Barney’s so insanely cute. His little feet crack me up. And the new puppy, Miss Beazley, she’s… well, you’ll see.

Pizza and Donuts

For several years now, Michele and I have done a big drive for PizzaIDF to throw a Hanukah Feast. Michele’s tied up with other fundraisers, and I’m just busy with my stupid life…

But Karen at PizzaIDF emailed me today and asked for my help, so I’m giving it.

Dear Tanya,

For the past 2 years you helped us deliver donuts and pizzas for soldiers of the Israeli army. This has proven to be a real morale booster for our soldiers who are full of appreciation for the support they receive.

Tomorrow night Hanukah starts and once again we will be sending out donuts to our brave soldiers for the 8 days of Hanukah with messages of support from all over the world.

We would really appreciate it if you could help us out again.

Thank you very much for your support.

Best Regards,
Karen
www.pizzaIDF.org

She didn’t give us the special page for donations this year, but we’ll do it the normal way. Please give what you can for these brave men and women to have a big feast, and send your support, thoughts, prayers, and best wishes for their safety. (And please spread this around!)

PizzaIDF Hanukah Feast Donations

I got nuthin’

Quandary

Being Black Friday, I’m seriously considering getting off my lazy, turkey-laden ass and buying a tree. Now, the decision. I have ten-foot ceilings. Do I go all greedy American overconsumer and buy a 9-1/2 foot tree?

I think I do.

(Admittedly, I may be dissuaded when I see the price for one…)
