It was actually nice to get back to the grind after Thanksgiving Week of Sloth. If we didn't have the grind, the Weeks of Sloth wouldn't be special.
The weather has been unseasonably warm and dry. We need snow, but at the same time, it's hard to complain about sun and temperatures in the 60's. It's probably my fault, from buying all that warm stuff for the crosswalk.
Magnum and I have been keeping up with the workplace health incentives and have begun receiving our cash rewards. We even received new pedometers for getting even more rewards. Will Christmas be fully funded with work health incentive cash this year?? Doubt it, but we'll see!
On that note, Meego is lobbying for a trial bike. They're for doing parkour-like things while on a bicycle. Looks fun, is not at all very practical, and the bikes are crazy expensive considering they each have only one gear and no seat. Still... maybe if he lets me play with it?
Meet my friend Brother Harry. Harry and I used to work together as desk agents at the sex-change town hotel many years ago. I was studying to be an engineer, he was studying to be a Jesuit Priest. He had some of the best dirty jokes...
It so happened that our boss and I shared the same first name. She went through a "slutty period" involving the hotel, so Harry gave me a new name, which he still endearingly refers to me today.
I am now a retired engineer, and Bro Harry is a much loved Jesuit. He still lives in my hometown, of which he is pretty much the pope, if hometowns had such things.
This is a pic of him at the recent tree-lighting ceremony. I thought it so cute, he makes the Silver Lining post pic this week.
