Last post was on the 15th. Didja all miss me?

That yellow gown might happen, but only as a collaborative effort, not a personal one.

We got through the MHRA inspection last week with only a few minor observations. Yay! We get to stay in business.

My car had to work hard to start this morning. I am hoping it was just the cold. And it is very cold.

Speaking of cold, last week the AC was broken, so my floor at work was up near 80 thanks to the boilers. Today... 66. My fingers are going to get chilly.

Yesterday I did the "Culling of Strathholme" for the first time (WoW reference). I find it VERY disturbing to play an undead character (probably any character, but undead in particular) while helping to ensure that Arthas becomes part of the entity known as the Lich King. And the part that isn't disturbed... wants to cry.
I can still, to this day, remember my shock to see the hero of Warcraft III (it was three, right?) turn into the villian. I thought for sure we would see him redeemed by the end.
You know... I still expect to see him redeemed by the 'end'. Whenever that is...

I am likely to be overly posty today. It's a combination of not having opportunity last week and having stuff-all to do here at work today.

All my brothers are back in WoW! Brothers 1 and 2 never left, but 3 and SiL were never strongly attached, 4 burned out and went elsewhere and 5 wisely decided college was more important.

BUT, a few weeks before the expansion came out brother 4 found himself 'dying of boredom' and came back.

Then, after the expansion, brother 3 and SiL logged on and made Death Knights.

THEN, after having his account hacked and sold on EBay then retrieved, brother 5 came back... WITH his girlfriend.

Ah, the clan increases! Seriously, it's selfish, but I so love having them all online with me.

And said girlfriend will, apparently, be spending Christmas with us. Something about a computer held hostage.. I mean, left with Dad to be fixed.

Okay, most of the spam hitting the filter at work has MY address in the 'from' section.

And, lots of them, in the last few days have been of an interesting variety. Let me show you just today's offering of email from 'me':

Help my friend, he's here
The whole room awaits you!
Wait for me, 10 min!
Can't find you, darling
I feel bad, come
We seek for you all day!
He broke his leg, come here!
Meet me on a street
Help my friend, he's here
