A Short Friday List
November 18, 2011 § Leave a comment
1. I am looking forward to Thanksgiving. Richard gave us a wonderful recipe book and I think I am going to try my hand at tiramisu. Oh, I’ll still make my pies like normal for the holiday, but I want to try something different! I’ll take pictures of the process too. I’m a little nervous, but you never know unless you try, right?
2. The Penguins are right at the top of the NHL standings, which would be really awesome if it didn’t keep happening that every time I go to eat at the Cafe and watch a game, they lose!! Apparently, I should just stay home and listen to them online. Sid should be back soon. It’s going to be amazing. Mom picked James Neal for her fantasy team. Well, everyone’s got some beginner’s luck, right? Dan Bylsma’s mustache is the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. It might even top Pat’s beard.
3. I bought some Christmas presents for the sibs over the past few days!! If you’re curious as to what to get me for Christmas, may I delicately suggest a firearm of some sort?
4. I don’t have a lot planned for the weekend. That’s a good thing. Even though I’m now incapable of sleeping past 8:30 in the morning, at least I can putter around my house in slippers and a hoody, doing nothing for long stretches of time. Actually, I think I am going to try to get back up to West Pittston and take some pictures around the town. I think a lot of people have forgotten about the flood but when I drove through WP the other day, it hit me hard, all over again. There’s still just so much wreckage around. Maybe not in the typical sense of ‘wreckage’, but I see it in the empty business windows, the dumpsters outside their doors. It’s there in the construction vans and the darkened windows and the dirty homes. Well, before I get all morbid, I’ll stop. I really want to do a follow-up post though.
And now that thinking of the terrible flood days has completely depressed me, I guess that’s all for the list. Did you ever just have a glum day? I love the word ‘glum’. It’s the perfect word for that feeling. It just fits.
Want to see a picture of the rat fellows? Of course you do. They’d cheer anyone up. Here’s Willie:
