Linux Taking Over Christmas?

I noticed something the other day at Walgreen’s. They had their Christmas candy stuff up and there was this two-foot tall chocolate penguin.

Then I started seeing penguins everywhere in holiday decorations. Is this the first year for them? I sure don’t remember them last year.


Oh well, tomorrow kicks off this crazy season. We are supposed to go see Enchanted tonight. A friend of ours saw a sneak preview and really liked it.

At work I found out our hot Hispanic maintenance guy is getting a divorce. Stud, I’ll try keeping you satisfied until you find someone else.

Otherwise I’m off until next Monday. We now have two Thanksgivings to go to since the Hubby’s sister has moved up here. So everyone eat safe and see you next week.

Good Riddance

We had a pretty good weekend. We saw “The Wedding Singer” at the Bob Carr Theater. Not a classic show, but having grown up in the ’80’s it was enjoyable. Friday I had off and did school work but also finally got to spent some time playing my PS3. Saturday we helped paint the community front gate int he morning. The rain held off long enough for us to get the work done. Errands were then run including shopping and then delivering a new fridge for the hubby’s sister. We then got home, rested a bit, then went to a Halloween party. The interesting bit was the old lesbian who was drunk and was getting obnoxious with a little straight boy at the party. Sunday we cleared a big chunk of the DVR and then had a bowling birthday party for a good friend in the evening.

But the best part was learning from the Hubby’s sister that his niece broke up with her slug of a boyfriend! Woohoo! Now she can move on with her life.

And this Daylight Savings time change is just annoying. I woke up an hour late this morning because my bedside clock decided to fall back an hour…how was it supposed to know the government changed the days on it?

Sadly, no Halloween for me this Wednesday. I have class that night, but also with this storm off the coast we might actually get rained out this Wednesday, too.
