December 19, 2011


Just back from the gym. Am amazed at the thoughtlessness of some people.

 Sunday I watched a guy twice set up a piece of equipment for himself. Claim his “spot” by leaving his towel and his clip board, and then go off to hold lengthy chats with people in other areas while other people waited for that piece of equipment.  Today I watched a guy set up his machine, climb on…and then proceed to spend a fair piece of time texting as, again, people waited for that piece of equipment.  Or perhaps it’s just my Bah Humbug frame of mind.

For reasons I don’t know, am having a hard time getting the ho ho ho mojo this year.  I’m guessing I’m not the only one as the cards are coming in very slowly…I only got mine out at the end of last week.  Still don’t have a tree, although I do have wreathes on the door and poinsettias blooming.  As you can see, I have planned the menus for this weekend, but still have some food shopping to do. And I do need to pick up something for the cat.  She’d be terribly offended if she were not included in the festivities.  Cats are like that….
