…snow-blower. The great Christmas storm of aught-four has yet to reach our neighborhood. Unless you have to be out driving in it, it’s frustrating to be sitting on the couch, watching inches of snow pile up just a few miles south of your house on TV while nary a flake falls at your home. We’re supposed to get ours this afternoon and evening, but will be fortunate to get 4-6″. About an hour south, they’re looking at 12-18″. Lucky bastards. You see, the more it snows, the more likely the neighbors with snow-blowers send one of their kids over to clean off our drive. If we just get a couple inches, I’m going to have to take my ass out in the cold to shovel tonight/tomorrow.

More later today regarding Christmas lists past. Be thinking about some of your favorite gifts over the years.
