Today’s post is totally random. I don’t have an organized thought in my head. I have way more to do today than I have time for, and I really don’t need to be at work given all that’s on my list. I have an incredibly busy weekend ahead, and I guess this is the way it’ll be until 2005 gives way to 2006, and we begrudgingly return to the routine.

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for a new year. This year has been a real bitch. Work has been crazy, stuff at home has been, well, put-me-in-a-rubber-room-with-a-straight-jacket crazy. Then Katrina and Rita came to visit and wore out their respective welcomes in a really expeditious manner. The state is struggling desperately to start the rebuilding process, and local officials are being made to look like complete idiots, as only Louisiana politicians can, in the national media. Don’t get me wrong — there’s plenty blame to go around, and believe me, I’m NO fan of our governor (I most definitely voted for the other guy) — but geez. Her wardrobe choices? We’re enduring the worst national disaster in history and someone is writing about how Lizsport would have been a better label for her to wear? Sonofabitch. I have a list a mile long of coulda-shoulda-wouldas, but I don’t give a flyin’ you-know-what about what she had on.

Makes my head hurt. Anyway, enough about that. I’m envious today, because everyone has snow but me. We hardly ever get snow, and I’ve never had the experience of waking up to drifts of it. On the rare occasion that we do get snow, it’s a stretch to even call it that. It rarely sticks, and if it does, the most I’ve seen pile up is a couple inches, tops. Oh, but we get out in it, make snowmen, do it up big. My kids think it’s amazing. So all of you that have snow? Pfffft.

Well I’m going to go now and make to-do lists. Then I’m going to make a list of my lists.

The rest of you can go outside and make snow angels. Dammit.
