Back to the grind...

Well not really. I love my job, but I just wish the weekend had been a bit longer.

Starting to get in gear for Christmas. Did a bit of Christmas shopping with the boys on Saturday and we had a great time - including lunch at my favourite Mexican place.

Sunday we went to a nearby store to check out the decorations - lots of really tacky stuff, including a bear that sang a version of MC Hammer's "Can't touch this", changed to "It's Christmas" while doiing a little dance. Bought some new lights to go in the Pooh Bear Grotto...


An interesting thought from my 11 year old - it is a shame that DVD players don't have a Shuffle function like CD players do - watching a movie with all of the scenes jumbled up could be very funny.


My daughter takes for ever to get ready. The rest of us were waiting by the door while she finished sorting herself out.

She finally comes down the stairs.

"I'm ready to go now."

"We've just come back!"


Starting on me next assignment - mapping Census data for one of the America states. I have been given Ohio. Anything interesting that I should know about Ohio?

This was supposed to be some American joke I've read a few times here in the net...

Nothing interesting ever happen in Ohio.

Or you knew already about that. :)

You're a step ahead of me if you've started your shopping already. I just can't ever get in the mood to shop until after Thanksgiving, which is odd, since I LOVE to shop.

Ohio... I don't know much about it, except they're really proud of their football team!

Shadowthorne - no, I didn't know that - not promising for my assignment! :-)

Terri - We have friends who had bought everything by the end of October! But I guess they need to get a life :-) Football, huh? Not sure I can work that in, but if I get desperate you never know!

I am originally from a border state of Ohio.

Ohio Sucks.

The people can't drive...but they can build an amusement park.

Sparky - Well I am hoping that Ohio is really exciting and displays some beautiful demographic patterns!

Haven't started shopping, yet. May try to knock it out next week while I am off.

Ohio - The Buckeye State. The capital is Columbus and the state rock song is "Hang On Sloopy"?

Can't touch this...

Ohio...um, rhymes with de Mayo? Like Cinco de Mayo? Otherwise...I believe I remember them having at least one rude family that was from there when I worked at the Duty Free shop when I was in college. Does that help? ;)

I want that MC Hammer-esque bear. Well, not really, but since I read that I've been dancing in my seat singing "Can't touch this." lol

Rock Chef said...

agg79 - Hang on Sloopy? That does it, I want to change! I want a different state!

Ali - Yeah, really helpful... You're dancing again? Cool!

Um...

Well, Akron is the birthplace of the "industrial rock" band DEVO.
