Today is my last day at work until January 4th, 2010.

Normally around this time of year I would cease contact with you all and hermetically seal myself in my house with a a bottle of absinthe and weeks of unceasingly decadent self-pleasure.

Hark, that is not to be.

I leave for Wichita the 10th returning the 13th and I work from home the 21st-23rd & 28th-30th. The rest is a mix of weekends, holidays and vacation. 30-full days of not coming into work. Ok, ok, I may drink just a little absinthe.

A word about absinthe.

drax0r and I lost our beloved "Anna Fine Wine & Spirits" in this poor economy. Our hearts go out to the owners of the store, as knowing them enriched our lives. So a huge Dallas chain http://www.goodygoody.com (check out the link to see our store on the front page) bought them out and have moved in.

We feel bad for the previous owners and miss them, but Goody Goody has some great prices, which makes us feel guilty. My new brand of Scotch is sold there, and they've dropped the price of Lucid to $58 a bottle.


It snowed. In Texas, in December. While it snows once, each year in Texas, rarely does it do so in December. In fact, I can;'t remember the last time it happened. I blame global warming.

At any rate, I finally got to wear my boots in the manner for which I intended: http://ehowton.livejournal.com/251338.html. Sadly, I was once again faced with a harrowing drive in, as those bulky things are not conducive to accelerating, braking, or shifting in the Tiburon. I thought I was going to die.

My wife's biological father sent us all Target giftcards for Christmas this year. I'd been eyeballing Blizzard's Warcraft Battlechest, but as it was $40 and I've never played it, I pushed it to the peripheral. The giftcard more than covered the cost, and seeing how much my boy enjoyed Starcraft and not owning another RTS, I bought it.

Its amazing how much he likes it, how much he is learning (he plays the Night Elves exclusively), and how much I enjoy his pleasure. So we've been playing as much of that as we can fit in, and I bet a lot more once he's out of school over Christmas break ;)

Seeing how my 4-days off felt like 4-months, I'm hoping to really experience something post-apocalyptic for my 30-day run. I don't know how often I'll post, or how coherent I'll be, or if I'll even care, but ya'll have a Merry Christmas if that's your thing, and a Fantastic New Year!

And when the lamb had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a green fairy: and the name that sat on her was ehowton, and Hell followed with him.

So long and good riddance you jackass. When you return, not only will you be a forgotten memory, but I'll be one month smarter than you and you'll be eternally retarded. Godspeed.

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the heard is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that is why your theory will fail.

LOL Goody Goody. Wonderful name for what they sell. They would do extremely well in my city.

Those boots look dangerous. They look menacing. Like they could really lay down a good ass kicking. The look like...THE LAW. I could see how they might bring death in such a place of Zen such as a Tiburon. They would go great with a leather trench coat and long barreled shotgun.

And everywhere I am assaulted with stories of Gaming bliss. I feel my hand turn to acquire something.

Wonderful name for what they sell.
If I opened a liquor store, I'd name it, "Fantastic Fantastic!"

They would do extremely well in my city.
I'm doing my part to keep them afloat.

Those boots look dangerous.
They're dead sexy on me - and comfortable as hell.

I feel my hand turn to acquire something.
What's your poison?

i find it sad that, as much as I enjoy the female form, I look at pictures like the one of your Night Elf and my first thought isn't "yummy", it's "how is that any kind of practical for going into battle?" ... in my own defense, once i grab a step-ladder so I can suspend my disbelief, i do eventually get around to wanting to peel that bikini off her with my teeth

anyway, enjoy your time away from work, Witchita, Warcraft, and the absinth. Merry Christmas and happy new year *hugs you*

I *love* the [fashion over function] of fantasy "armor." And *nod nod* to the rest. I want to gnaw on her ears while I'm inside her.

It snowed 4 days before Christmas in 2004. I remember because it was the day of my Dad's memorial service.

Thanks for the info. Sorry for the memories :(

I am practically weeping with jealousy right now. A month out of the office? I am so glad you get to do that. And I only hate you a tiny bit for it. Just a really eensy bit.

Words can't describe the feeling. Its...indescribable.

Ahh sexualized fantasy art, how I love thee!

I'm pretty picky actually.

Three thoughts:
- Your absinthe & champagne cocktail on youtube in in my favorites.
- Oh for f*&ks sake...here kitty kitty. Meow.
- The next snow won't be until Valentines Day. That's my luck...when all want to wear something skimpy/be naked and it's effin' cold as the frozen tundra.

Your absinthe & champagne cocktail on youtube is in my favorites.
Over 400 views to date!

Oh for f*&ks sake...here kitty kitty. Meow.

That's my luck...
There are few occasions where I will take full advantage of my furnace's output. That's one of them.

Heh. I'm exactly the opposite in that I am SO present at work until January 4th. No, that is a lie, until Xmas eve. We're having building works and every morning I weigh up in my mind whetehr I can take the day off and every day it is so very impossible that I land up back at work again!!

I am looking forward to it just being me for four days off between Xmas and New Year. TV and Playstation.

I've found that time off is best spent when needed. Please, enjoy yours.
