<snore snore snore>

I'm not quite there yet, but I'm very very close.

The Ken-is-on-a-trip Eggplant Parm was mighty good. I thought I'd get three dinners out of it, but I ate half of it tonight! And wow, do I love that fresh mozzarella, or what?! It was so yummy and nutty-tasting, and just...well, it was just darn tasty!

My challenge tonight is to see if I can stay warm in our bed without Ken, AKA, The Human Furnace. I get fairly hot at night, too, so I think I might be okay. Sheeba always comes in and curls up right by me, and that makes me feel toasty, so I don't think I'll freeze tonight. :)

Patriots are in the Super Bowl (but the Chargers gave 'em a run), and the Packers and the Giants are battling it out right now. It's a good game, although it's kinda crazy to be playing in such cold weather!

It's embarrassing to admit that I am ready to hit the hay...but what can I say? I'm really sleepy, and I get up at 5 AM. I'll turn on the game in the bedroom, but I'm pretty sure I'll conk out in a matter of minutes, now that I know that Ken is safe and sound. If I stayed up for a while, I'd hit my second wind...but I'd much rather just go to bed and get a good night's sleep. I learned a while back that if I'm to do the best job I can do, I can't be sleep-deprived. I'm much better and much more efficient at what I do if I'm not overly loopy!

Oh! I knew there was something I was forgetting about! I've got my book ordered for our book club's next book, The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles. The timeframe of the book is post-WWII, and I think it will be fairly interesting. I ordered the book through ABE, which is a great source for obscure books. Through ABE, I ordered a book through yet another great site, Better World Books. Not only do they recycle books by selling used copies, they are also a local company. Even better, a portion of each of their orders goes towards funding world literacy. They don't charge shipping, so I was able to get the book--gently used--for less than $4. Can't beat that with a stick!

I'm about ready to plant my face in the keyboard...I'm just plum tuckered, as my Mom would say. Night all!

Still kickin'...

Wow, looked for a moment like the Giants had it...but the TD was called back. All tied up, with a minute and a half to go. What a great game!

Holy crap!

Giants kick a field goal to win it...BLOCKED! This has got to be one of the best playoff games ever. WOW! Dammit, I'm all wokeded up now. Hee heee!

That reminds me! Cousin Shane and I exchanged jokes today, ones that we made up. Mine was, "What is the psychotic's favorite perfume?" Obsession. His was, "What is the pychotic's victim's favorite cologne?" Escape. We cracked each other up with those!

I seriously want to go to bed right now, but I can't go to bed on a playoff game that's in overtime! These guys are killin' me....

It's quiet at Lambeau Field right now

Holy moley...Giants kick a field goal to win it, and they're going to the Super Bowl. What a game.

Wow, yeah! That's one of the best playoff games I remember in recent history. My team and quarterback aren't going to the Super Bowl...but his little bro is! Kinda cool.
