It was fun while it lasted

I hope everyone had a great New Year's. Fran and I always try to keep New Year's low key. We hung out over at Mitch and Hollywood’s apartment with some friends, drank Champale, and watched Dick Clark.

Fran and I enjoyed the warm front we had last week. Saturday it hit 61°. I was about to put on my Speedo and lay out in the front yard, but instead we drove out to Skaneateles to celebrate Fran’s father’s birthday. We ate filet mignon and Fran’s father made his secret bernaise sauce. It was only one of the top three best steaks I have ever had in my life. Remember what Fran always says, "If God didn't want us to eat meat, then how come He made it so delicous?"

The rest of my extendo-weekend was spent relaxing and hanging out with friends. It’s a good thing that I enjoyed it, because I was looking at my Kojak calendar today, and we do not have another holiday until April. I find that completely unacceptable. Luckily, a new year means new vacation. I may have to dip into that soon and take my baby’s mother out to Sizzler and a night at Motel 6. We’ll just have to see.

It was tough going back to work today. I am still converting my clock from vacation time to work time. I made the mistake of staying up late on Saturday and sleeping till noon on Sunday. It must have been 3 AM before I fell asleep last night. What’s up with that shizznitty?

Congrats to Dave W. and Christine. They got engaged this past Christmas.
