1. January, 2006 - New Year, Same Old Stuff

Had fun last night. Once again, the party was mostly married folks or single guys, so there wasn’t much hope for even getting a Happy New Year kiss from someone, but what the heck. I still had fun, and got to sample some Hmoobshine (which more than made up for the somewhat unpleasant taste with a big kick). Plus got to see the batch of people that I only see on NYE. Drove home about 3:30 in the morning, after waiting for most of the amateurs to get off the roads, and it was clear sailing except for a cluster of highway patrol at the intersection of 694 and 35W. At least four of them were scattered around the ramps and cloverleafs, lights ablink, and suspected drunks walking the white lines along the shoulders.

Today’s going to be a slow day, I expect. I’m not especially hungover, but I am just plain tired. It’s coming up on noon now, and while the third (and final) load of laundry is in the washer already, and I had breakfast one load ago, I still haven’t crawled out of the bathrobe and fuzzy slippers and into the shower. I suspect I’ll do that once this load is into the dryer, with a nap to follow almost immediately.

As for the time off from work, in the twelve days in which I didn’t go into the office, I finished six of the tasks I had set for myself. Since I’d planned to do one a day, subtracting three days for Christmas Eve, Christmas, and today, finding that I’ve gotten two-thirds of them done isn’t great news, but it’s about what I expected. The only snag is that there are the website updates that I still need to do, and I probably should get them done today. Maybe I’ll manage to tackle them this evening. As for my planned switch of the blog to the new software, I guess that’s not going to happen today like I’d planned. But for now, I’m happy enough that I’m starting the new year with clean clothes.
