Super Bowl Sunday

The cold is eating into my bones. It's like God's own staple gun against my spine.

I hope my grumpiness passes. The last week I've been pretty miserable for no real reason. Aside from some ISP problems over the past couple of days, there's nothing wrong.

Come on, May!

Anyway, I'm at work on this cold, bitter Sunday afternoon before the Super Bowl that I won't watch. Sports are fine as a social activity or as video games, but I won't watch a sport on my own unless I'm fantastically bored and lazy. I'm here til 5. I made a black and pinto bean chili in the slow cooker that will be ready when I get home.

So, to make up for my poor performance in January, I finished two books this weekend (because of the Sunday reference shift, I took Friday off).


Idlewild by Nick Sagan - I've been in a sci-fi mood lately and this quick, fun read totally fit the bill. Sagan, son of Carl, is a good writer and keeps the twists and words flowing. This is the first book of a trilogy and I'll start the second soon.

Honey Don't by Tim Sandlin - I've read 3 of Sandlin's 7 novels now. Western Swing is still my favorite. This one felt fluffier, more in the tradition of Carl Hiaasen, but dealing with D.C. politics rather than Florida's. Still, it's an entertaining read.

You would not find me good company today. I'm active and a bit wound up. I'd be sending you up a wall.

Someone asked us the other day who we were guessing would win the Super Bowl. Brian said the Colts, Randy was there, he said the Bears. I said "I'm cooking."
Just an excuse to do what I like to do....and lots of it!!!!
