How wonderful it is that October has come into our lives. Not only is this my birthday month, but it is also the official bridge to winter and the start of what I used to call “holiday madness”. I know it’s getting closer to winter because one week ago we were in the mid 80’s and it was humid as hell and now we are freezing our balls off (well at least the males are). The leaves all changed colors and fell off the trees again; I swear that happens every year. Another ritual is that I get to watch the old men in the neighborhood work tirelessly to make sure that no stray leaves are in their yard. Old dude, it’s fall, that means the leaves will fall, and yes, they will fall into your yard. I swear as soon as more than 4 leaves fall into their yard they are outside with the rake or lawnmower or blower taking care of them. I can only hope that when I retire, I actually have a life.
Hey, in better news, I’m on vacation this week. I get to basically do nothing for a whole week; a whole week which will go by faster than any other week in the history of my life. What am I going to do on my week off you ask? Well, I received and installed my new Adobe Master Collection on my computer this weekend so that will probably be what I’m working on for the rest of the week. Of course when I need some downtime I will have to watch a movie or two. I am thinking of checking out Transformers tomorrow when it comes out as long as I can get to the video store before the rest of the slackers with no jobs do.
Hey, back to the holiday thing. I am sure I said it before but I am noticing that the whole holiday thing doesn’t bother me as much as it used to. I don’t give a shit if there are Halloween cards (as long as I don’t get one) and am not phased that stores have their Christmas aisles started already. Christmas can finally be in December for me. I had started feeling that way last year but I was still quite fresh out of retail so I wasn’t 100% withdrawn yet, but I think I might this year. Shit, I might actually even enjoy the holidays this year. Scary shit isn’t it?
I am going to be working on web pages this coming week in between bouts of reality and homework and movie watching. I want to upgrade my Movable type and redo my 3rd Bass website and work on my friend’s website as well. Hopefully I can get all of this shit done in the following week… but I think I’m going to go take a nap first.
