My paycheck was direct deposited 4 days early. Imagine the feeling you would get if you shook out all the pennies in your cyber piggy bank and discover somehow, mysteriously, all the pennies had lots of babies! There’s not really a better way to start your Saturday than with the sky full of sunshine, a belly full of cream of wheat, a heart full of cheer, and a bank account full of cash. Yes, I do think 2006 is going to suck leagues less than 2005.
So, it’s cold these days. Cold enough that I really wish I knew where my thermostat was so I could turn up the heat a smidge. And I’m not kidding about that. I do not know where my thermostat is. I can finally afford to be a little less miserly with the heat, but I lack the one gadget that’s fundamentally necessary to get the job done. So, I have to wrap myself in clothes and blankets to stay warm. Not that I care that much, it’s just annoying because all the blankets and clothes really restrict my movement. Good thing I have a microwave so I can make piping hot tea at the press of a few buttons.
Yesterday, I found out yet another one of my friends got engaged a couple of weeks ago. That’s 2 more friends down in 1 week. One more, and I swear I’ll scream.
