I said HARK!!
'Tis it snowing on my blog??
And a cold one at that. The temperature in the ATL right now is 30 degrees.
It didn't feel that way. Maybe because I had my ear muffs on.
(I still gotta go buy a coat and some gloves, though. Sigh).
It is terribly quiet at work today. Lots of people are off. I usually take off around the holidays, but since I have a long cruise coming up in February, I'm considering taking that whole month off. (Oh the horror! Will this darn place survive without me? lol).
I'll think about that. Not sure how that would go over with our moronic management.
My Weekend. I had a decent weekend. Didn't do much of anything (should've been doing a little shopping. Sigh). But I did stop by Grandma's house for a spell.
And that's always a little adventure.
We sat in the living room and as usual, I did my crochet thing. (You know I'm staying for a minute when I bring out my yarn.) We sat and talked and watched a movie. Some BIZARRE apocalyptic Escape from New York craziness (It was actually called The Soldier, starring Kurt Russell. (I was deeply disturbed. Grandma wasn't paying much attention. I think she was just happy to see me.)
Then there was my Uncle Tweet. He's special. He lives outside in his truck, but comes in the house to cook. He's been known to do his drug thing, but I hear that he's been clean for a minute. I'm not sure.
But dude was in the kitchen cooking oxtails, chicken wings and hamburgers.
"You want some dinner, Lisa? We got plenty."
"Uh, I'm straight," was my lone reply.
After awhile this disturbed Grandma. "You sure you dont' want something to eat?"
"I'm cool," I said.
"Do you eat?" Grandma asked, a hard edge to her voice.
I looked down at myself. Yeah, I've lost 40 pounds this year, but I am not a skinny girl. By far.
"Uh, yes I do."
That was my cue to take my azz in the kitchen and find something to eat.
I'd eaten a couple of hours before I showed up at her house. I had some stir fried veggies with brown rice. It was so good that I had a second serving. So I was NOT hungry.
But I went in the kitchen and looked around. Uncle Tweet had the gospel music going HARD on the cheap radio sitting atop the deep freezer. Almost made me wanna whip my hair back and forth, lol.
Lo and behold, there was some cabbage and rice on the stove. I had a small bowl of that. (They still had isshas with that. Oh well).
But I had a good time. Gotta see that Oldgirl more often, especially since she only lives 10 minutes away.
Quote of the week: from Twitter...
"Motivation comes from many different sources, but it's best if it springs from within you."
Man, I could write a whole post on that one. Everybody can do what they can to motivate you, but until something from deep within motivates you, nothing is really going to happen.
Well, that's just my experience. I struggle with that even now.
Video of the week. "Olivia (Lost and Turned Out)" by The Whispers.
This is one of my FAVORITE songs. Has much story to it. My favorite lines of the song:
She's spending most of the time
Walking the streets
She has a certain quota to fill...
He wants to buy a new Seville.
I LOVE that song. Crooning about a hooker on the stroll. CLASSIC.
Whelp! That's it for today. I expect to have a decent workweek. Management isn't here. We'll all be a little kinder this week.
Well, at least I know I will.
This is our Christmas week! Make it a good one.
Remember the reason for the season!
