catching up ...

• I've had an employee out sick for the week, which is one of the reasons I haven't been around, as I've had to cover parts of his shift on different days when I couldn't find someone to fill in.

• Looking forward to another three-day weekend, even though I'll be working for a wee bit on Monday. Yes, the time will be spent on productive areas -- sleeping, a little golf, leveling my character on World of Warcraft to 40 so she can gain a mount. Heh.

• Had lunch with a friend from high school on Friday. Haven't seen her since we were in college, though we've kept in touch sporadically over the years. She's back to visit her mom and bring her family -- hubby and three children -- to her island home. It was good to catch up with her, and we plan to hang out a bit more on Monday night, having some drinks and dinner before she leaves on Wednesday. And this time I get to meet the hubby. Oh, and if it's possible, she looks even better (hotter) than she did in high school ... there's no way you would guess that she's 37 AND has pushed out three rugrats. Time -- and pilates -- has treated her well.

• New Year's resolutions ... does anyone even make them anymore. That is, does anyone make them intending to actually follow through on them? Here, for the sake of making them, are mine:
> Lose a bit more weight ... and get some new clothes to go with the slimmer (relatively speaking) figure

> Move ... and not just to another apartment

> Get fully and properly kissed ... preferably by a woman, and a sexy one at that

> Try to start writing non-work stuff again

> Reach level 60 with at least one WOW character, if not two or three

> Expand my vocabulary

> Improve my golf game to the point where I regularly break 90

That's it. Happy New Year's Eve eve.

zoned all week ...

been too lazy and unmotivated to post anything for a while ...

but it was brought to my attention that I missed my early HNT from Guam, so here's a late one:

... when the flash is too bright and the face is too close

what sucks about Monday holidays ...

... is that Tuesdays feel like Mondays ... it's almost Thursday here but doesn't feel like it.

Hopefully on Saturday it will feel like a three-day weekend ... but somehow I doubt it.
