Some Old Gems from Decembers Past

I am officially phoning this one in. I know, I know – it’s completely and utterly lame of me, but let’s be fair: no one is really working this week, unless eating Christmas cookies and shopping can somehow constitute work  (it sadly does not, otherwise I’d be making overtime). So rather than post something brand spanking new, I’d like to highlight some old posts from Decembers past.

“But Geraldine,” you cry, “I’ve read all of your archives numerous times! I’ve memorized everything you’ve ever written.” And in reply I will simply smile and ride off on a winged pony.

Yeah, I know. I don’t have a winged pony. But no one’s read all my archives, either.

Anyway, please enjoy. I’ll be back tomorrow with an all new round-up, and reflections on the year that was. After that I’ll be offline until January 2nd, working on a secret project codenamed “Eating Cookies.” (Spoiler: the project consists mostly of eating cookies. Also, drinking milk.)

  • Too cold…We are in Laramie (recently determined to be one of the coldest places on Earth to live) for 6 more weeks. Wish I had a winged pony…fly my ass to Hawaii!

    First of all, I *have* read all your archives. Not very long after I found your blog, I got the flu. I was on the couch for a week. I may not remember every word (high fever) but dammit I read em.*

    Second, I want a winged pony for Christmas.

    *What do I win?

    I have too!!

    And from my analysis, I deduce that you need more self confidence.

    It’s not weird or a crime to have read through them in all in a small amount of time… and still be reading to the present….

    Nope.
