The Trashman Cometh

No, I'm not dead. Or resting, or pining for the fjords. Or even snowed in (yet). What was a busy few weeks became a busy couple of months, and now that Thanksgiving is behind us, I have a little breathing room again. So what's been going on since I've been away? Let's summarize:

...the Red Sox won the World Series. There was dancing in the streets in Maine. Really. I heard it myself. Silly fans.

...the Wife and I moved to a new (for us) apartment. We're on the second floor, away from the drafty house and the loud, motorcycle-infested street corner.

...it has snowed five times so far, with more due imminently. See the new sidebar attraction at right.

...the Packers are 11-2! 11-2!!! So what if the Pats are unbeaten -- THE PACK IS 11-2! Unfrigginbelievable.

...the college football teams representing my alma mater, my former place of work, and my current place of work went a combined 10-24. And none of those teams was Notre Dame.

...here's a test to see if you're still reading: Which of these four is NOT the name of a former or current breakfast cereal? (No Googling!) 1. Optimum Slim 2. Product 19 3. Milk Floats 4. Body Buddies.

...I bought an iPod. Welcome to the 21st century, finally.

Wow. Such excitement. It's no wonder I took three months off from blogging.

I've never heard of any of those cereals, but I would like to put in a guess for Body Buddies.

You also joined Facebook!

I think you have more snow than we do! But it might be colder here...

I'm just glad you're still with us. Then again, I was trying to think of a way to find your father and those Masters tickets . . .

Welcome Back. And I'm with Steph, Body Buddies is my answer.

Welcome back. Just to be different, I'll say Milk Floats.

Steph -- I think I'd trade the snow for the cold. I'd like to see the ground again before April. Or May.

BA -- Maybe if you play your cards right...

CnDC -- Thanks, and good answer, by the way, because...

The trivia answer is Milk Floats! And for winning, you get...a lifetime supply of Milk Floats. Congrats!

Well now. I don't know how I found myself here, but I'm a Lewiston native and so far I think your writings are pretty damn funny.

Happy holidays, from a Maine ex-pat! It's a lovely place to be dudring the holiday season - don't let the rednecks get you down!
