Favorite quote of inagural speech: We will extend our hand if you will unclunch your fist.
In other, nonrelated news, some of you may know John was in an accident last week. Since I'm writing about it second, you can deduce he's fine. His car's in the shop, though, in pretty bad shape. Luckily he has rental insurance, so he's covered till he gets ol' Sally back. It was last Thursday when we had the snow and ice.
Also, Tara and I spent the day Saturday redecorating her office and in Atlantic City. Just some favorite moments and quotes in a series of short plays:
Cashier at Snack Shop 1, Tara 0
CASH: That'll be $10.67.
TARA: hands over a ten spot
CASH: blinks awkwardly That's $10.67, ma'am.
TARA: stares awkwardly for a while more Oh my God! I'm so sorry! I totally thought I gave you a twenty!
ME: in heaven
Cashier on Casino Floor 1, Maureen 0
ME: Hi, how are you?
CASH: cold stare
ME: Could I exchange these dollars for quarters?
CASH: We don't sell quarters.
ME: Uhm, I don't want to buy quarters. I give you dollars...you give me quarters...
CASH: I'm sorry, I can't do that. I can only give you $2.00.
ME: Listen, lady, I just wanna do my laundry!!!
CASH: cold stare We can't sell quarters. I can give you $2.00 but that's it.
The of course there was the would-be drag race on the way home, Tara chucking an empty bottle and having it accidentally ricochet off my head, and lots of other stuff in her office that I can't remember (T, help me out in a companion blog? haha).
Good night, and welcome, President Obama! Wahoo!

So tonight, John and I will go to Donna and Rachel's for a taco fiesta...YUM! And tomorrow we have a Tastefully Simple party at my mom's. A weekend of delicious food.
For now, I'm going to relax with last night's Num3ers free OnDemand. Thank you CBS and Comcast. : ) Ta!

Ottercat wants some urchins and crabbies.
I swear to you he tucked himself in!! I has a cozy.
At the moment, we are roasting a nice 13 pound turkey while a nice loaf of beer bread cools...it smells rather amazing. We used a Sam Adams Fezziwig in the bread...nom!
Other than that, I'm in pain. Classic me...a month or so ago when we were decorating for Xmas, I strained my back. Then a few days later, forgetting we had just bought a new 40-pound tub of kitty litter, I went to grab the tub, pivoted my upper body at the exact time I grabbed the handle and lifted, and basically felt the muscles across my lower back rip to shreds. It's at the point now where seeing a doctor is inevitable as driving is very painful, and sitting in my crappy chair at work for 8-9 hours a day is just plain excrutiating. Ugh. Go, me.
Despite it all, I'm hoping 2009 will shape up to be a good one. Last night we went with Donna and Rachel to a fiesta. It was a nice, relaxed time. Even when the power went out (how's about them winds?!), we all just kinda chilled with candles and tap lights. We actually left before midnight, and were home in time to watch the Clintons trigger the ball at midnight. Then we watched Kathy Griffen. Start the new year laughing...what better way can you think of?
