  1. I've been catching up on all the camtheman posts from the last couple of days this morning, and what a riot! I wouldn't want his snark directed at me, but it's fun to read after the fact. Hey, what can I say, it's a slow day at work today. Thanks for the heads up on the CNN thing yesterday, ldyj. I also wonder if this is the type of thing he's hoping to do more of.

    ETA: I seriously had my finger on the "retweet" button last night when I saw a tweet about CNN and had to stop myself. :idea:

    Nice to see you posting, couchie! Hope things are settling down for you, finally.

    I had a quiet weekend, and even though our temperatures are slowing rising above zero (most days) it was grey and drizzly. Today it's sunny but the temperature isn't very fact, I drove through some light snow on the way to work. I wish spring would hurry up and arrive!

  2. Thanks, guys. I have yet to watch the new bit of clack I hear we received, so I will try to do that tonight. Today, I'm stuck in an online course at work......ugh. But at least I'm warm! Windchills are about -22C here today. My dogs are getting a bit of cabin fever, because it's really too cold to take them anywhere. The one insists on taking his walk, but hops around on three feet, trying to lift one up at a time to get it off the ground!

  3. Last night I watched the finale of The Taste instead of the Superbowl. LOL. My mom decided to drive home yesterday afternoon before the storm got into full gear. It was coming from the west and was already snowing, but she was driving east so she essentially drove out of it. This morning she'll wake up to snow in Toronto. She is a pretty brave driver, considering that she is turning 80 this year.

    So we had a great birthday party for Ian, and my ex drove out for it too. Ian is expecting the call from the RCMP any day now, since he gets his cardiophone off tomorrow (the final required test). I think his GF is going into panic mode, realizing it's down to the wire and it's going to be a long six months while he's gone. She is going to be left here to deal with things like taking care of the dog (German shepherd), selling the car and either selling or renting the house. It's a lot for a 21 year old to deal with.

  4. Just checking in to see what everyone is up to. Merrieeee, sounds like you had a great trip to NYC! Hope you enjoy your cruise. {{{Fear}}} hope things go well for you this month. Ldyj, hope you are feeling better. Couchie, so glad you mom got out for Christmas and is coming home soon. *waves to jmh123* Love the banner! Hugs to all.

    I've had a nice Christmas this year...very laid back, didn't do much, had the kids & their SO's and my mom for dinner. We dispensed with tradition a bit and I made a turkey wellington instead of a whole bird. I also made a veggie wellington to match, and all the usual trimmings. I had a week off work but I'm back at it today and Friday. I'm hoping to head up north to a skating show this weekend, if the weather co-operates.

    I hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year! And I hope we hear something from Clay about his future plans soon.

  5. Hope all the Americans had a great Thanksgiving. Merrieeee, good for you. I always wanted to break with tradition one year, but so far haven't got there yet. My mom is already in full Christmas planning mode, and instructed me yesterday to go buy the frozen turkey. I'd honestly love to *not* have turkey this year, but I don't think she'd go for it. I still have bags of left over Thanksgiving turkey in the freezer from October. Ugh. I can only make so many dishes with left over turkey, you know? Yesterday was a normal day here (hi couchie!) so I made myself a healthy pot of Sicilian fish soup with tomatoes & butternut squash. Yum yum yum. Naturpath says I need to eat more fish. Thankfully I love it. The weather has turned back to a wintery mix of snow & ice so it was warming.

    gbmifan, you're welcome. Glad you are still enjoying them. Does anyone know when our web concert is supposed to be?
