A Reminder From The Solid Fuels Administration -



This poster is from 1944. Geez, where were they when I needed this reminder?
I'm already freezing and it's only October! Hope you remembered to order yours.
WARNING! Coal will not work in your gas tank. That sure is one pissed-off looking penguin. He must have tried it, too.

It is obvious that you are off having too much fun. Things are looking up for me, but still no date yet. We are becoming better friends though, which is a great thing. ;-)

That's good news!
You're right, I've been out having a really nice life. I'll be getting back to some writing later this week.

Hey! Being all happy and sappy is no excuse to leave those of us who aren't wandering around this empty blog!

=)

Put him down for a few minutes and write something wonderfully caustic, ok?

Ha ha...I know I feel ultra-guilty.

He's in Ohio for the weekend; perhaps I can get 'un-hypmotized'
temporarily, but I purposely scheduled myself to work all weekend to keep busy....

Keeping busy can be a very good thing. I made a one day trip up to Illinois and back (about 1200 miles), and spent most of it in silence. It certinly gave me a lot of time to think some things through, although I think I dedn't get through it at all, but am still stuck somewhere in the middle with no real answers.

Hey again!! What's all this? Do you think that I work my ass off all week then consume half a bottle of wine and settle down to my comp in the evening to come here and see that I've got coal in my stocking again? Even I've posted on my blog, busy or not (dreck, admittedly, but still posts) - not that you would know about that. *sniff*

(That's called manipulation by guilt and I learned it from my mama.)

It's all smiles, really. =) I'm glad you've got better things to do than blog. Honestly.

Not for want of love, though.

I, however, have either burned a bridge or blown it up. I don't know quite yet. If the bridge still stands, I will be quite happy.

Geez, where do we think we are, My Space or something?

I'll check out the link, but some of us don't like dance music, FYI, so it better not be too fast, ha ha. I'm not mentioning any names.....
