Snow Daze


Informer
You no say daddy me snow me I'll go blame


This week contained a bonus weekend, as Tuesday and Wednesday were days off with pay due to the inclement weather that hit our area. I made the most of my time off by working on my ass-dent in the couch, making about two gallons of chili, and practicing the accordion. Truer personal improvement has never been so totally realized.

An old friend of mine has THE coolest wife ever. I really doubt either one of them reads this blog, or is even aware of its existence, but I'd still feel like a jackass if I spoiled his Valentine's Day surprise by specifically naming his gift(s). She emailed me asking my advice about her proposed VD gift, and I quickly roped another old friend into the conversation. We ended up putting together a very nice group of gifts, and I think my friend will absolutely shit himself when he sees them all.

If I had THAT kind of thoughtful (ex)wife, I'd probably still be married. Most of my married friends find their spouses to be a source of constant annoyance, or at least that's all I ever hear about. But Amanda really stepped things up for my old friend, and may have renewed my faith in the institution for the time being.

The event also reminded me that Valentine's Day is approaching. I managed to drift through the "holiday" last year completely oblivious to the occasion. I'm hoping to repeat that performance this year. Or perhaps get a call girl and a bottle of scotch. Calling all sluts!

Check out No One's Better Sake by Little Joy. It reminds me of Sublime for some reason.

It does NOT remind me of the rapper Snow.

A licky boom boom down

God Kraag-FOR THE LAST TIME: Not EVERY husband wants a six pack and a bottle of lube for Valentines Day.

Did dig the tune, though. Tempo seems appropriate for some happy times with a Swedish Hooker.......

Well...I totally missed the Valentine's Day reference and then it made it that much harder for me when I was trying to figure out why somebody was asking for advice on a venereal disease gift. But I got back on track again after... wait...what?

I LOVE wishing people happy VD...especially when 'i'm not in love...woa woa....just because...

I love to wish people happy VD all year because they give me a double take and think I'm talking 'bout venereal disease.

I've been married so long - we don't even remember it is Valentine's Day any more. Sad.
