So much for blogging

Better not expect anything new for a while.

No Luck At All

So of course yesterday is the first day back to the gym for this new year, and after a half hour beating on the elliptical, I come home, feeling 7-up. But happiness is short lived, because there is a call from the school, the younger lad is sick, and after a confusing 20 minutes or so, the MIL drops him off here. Could be pukey, then tired is the consensus from the school nurse and a neighbor, and oh boy, I think, how fun. But after a few hours he's seemingly better.

Cut to today, where he's not well enough to go to school, or maybe the warden at the nurse's office said keep him home a day, whatever. So day two at the gym is on hold, but there is good news because the rod that operates the drain in the shower breaks. Yay! Since it's so old, I have to fashion a paper clip, wire, and tape device worthy of MacGyver, and go fishing for a few minutes before I can pull up the spring and the rod. Now the drain once again works, and it's off to make mac and cheese for the younger lad, who is either playing Club Penguin or watching Nick or whatever.

Gym tomorrow, probably not, since there is a gig at night, and I don't want to be whupped. Sunday morning maybe. Ugh.

Getting back on the stick

While the holidays have left me feeling like I just went 15 rounds with Ali, I am slowly getting back up to speed. And in the sense of a New Year's resolution, I suppose I'll fire up writing here again and see if anything comes out of it. So get your shoes on, and here we go.

How not to edit a website

A plane just crashed in Buffalo, and all aboard, and some on the ground, were killed. Yesterday, as part of the backstory, wild winds and crazy weather ripped through the place. Thus the local news had stories about trees down, stuff getting blown around, etc. This morning when I went to the Buffalo ABC website for info on the crash, the first story listed after the plane crash caught my eye. Here is the screen grab:

In case it doesn't read well, it says, "Damaging Winds Bring Down More Than Just Trees." Yeouch, eh?

I think Blogger has some problems on the D&C site . . .

I Just Had The Weirdest Phone Call

Not that the call itself was weird, but the phone rang, I waited for caller ID, and then picked it up. I was watching some piano music on youtube with the score going past at the time, and as I clicked the phone on, I clicked off the website. Apparently the guy thought the "ding" of the piano was the beep of a phone machine, and delivered a message, as if said machine was recording. I figured it out midway through his spiel, when he said something like "I'd like to talk to you about it . .. " or whatever. so I just let him go, he finished his message, gave the number to call him back, and hung up, with that spritely little goodbye most people tag on the end when they leave a message.

Too funny.
