Midday Mundane Maunderings!

Long stupid meeting this morning, and to make matters worse, after it was over I zipped over to McDonald's and they were out of breakfast burritos! My little biweekly ritual RUINED!

Anyway, flurry of paperwork upon my return, and in just a minute or so, I have to head back home so I can take Jonathan to the middle school so he can get his final schedule and see where his classes are going to be. School starts tomorrow, you know. And yes, this mad jaunt across town is just all SORTS of convenient for me. And to make it even more frustrating, he can't go ahead and take his pile of stuff, because they aren't assigning lockers until tomorrow, which, if you've been paying attention, is the first day of class. Why they couldn't do it during registration, I have no idea.

Anyway, run to do that, then run back here to do more work, and try to get some more clean-up done. And no, I still haven't heard any more than I did last week. I'll be moving, sometime, when they get the paperwork done, sometime. So the long slow goodbye continues.

BUT! At least it gives us an opportunity for one final Thursday Three tomorrow morning! SO, all of you get your reminiscing caps on, because our good Dr. Smith has already given me the questions, and they are all about your favorite marsupial-themed Alabama-based weblog, that also has a gray on gray on white color scheme and is composed in Garamond typeface and written by a real live moron!

So get ready and all that.

Anyway, now then, off to glamorous Truss Vegas, and I'll see you all on the morrow.

Shame you could not have swung by Sonic (or even Chik-Fil-A) for one of their meaty breakfast burritos - and you could have slurped down one of those delicious cherry lime-aids that everyone raves about. I'm sure you'd rather have a Diet Coke over plenty of ice though. Is B-Ham flirting with 100 degrees like we are here in the NC Piedmont?

Yes it is 100 degrees here today, and it was 100 yesterday.

Speak of the devil, Marc--when I got through with getting Boy settled, on the way back to work we stopped and I got a breakfast burrito combo! Nothing like a greasy handful of blazing hot cholesterol on a triple-digit afternoon.

And yes, it is over 100 today. The last time I checked, it was an even 160 degrees outside.

Oh, and by the way, he DID get his locker today. So forget I said anything about that.

Aahhh, summer in the South, where you run from your house to your car and then the office, and reverse later in the day. How much longer until kids will be amazed at tales of having to live with only one window air-conditioner?

My grandma (in Chicago) used a fan where it had a place to put ice-cubes at the top. I'm guessing you eventually would get to the point of rationing: cold drink or feed the fan?

We were travelling back from New Eng1and today, but the Baltimore Sun website says it was 102 here today, for a record (here in the not-so-deep south).

It was only 99 in Manhattan as we inched along on the Cross Bronx Express(hah!)way.

Will you email me the TT to the job address so I can play along too? Please?

Only in the 90s here in Utah today and just under 70 on the way to work. Nearly fall temperatures for us!

Steevil, I hope you avoided the Brooklyn Cyclone of 2007!

And you betcha, Nate.
