    after your sister gives you a pair of Homer Simpson slippers, or your brother-in-law gives you a the football phone that obviously came with his Sports Illustrated subscription, or your mom gives you a Yankee Candle about the size of a toilet bowl, you’re going to want to unload those things but in a place where, maybe, somebody would actually want it.

    This is fishing good point. Someone should get on this.Report

    Four dead mice in 24 hours. While I’ve been cleaning mouse poop, I’ve been listening to the French Revolution portion of the Revolution podcast. Most specifically, the Reign of Terror where every couple of minutes somebody is being sent to the guillotine and the guy punctuates the execution by saying “Zip, thud.”

    The mouse traps and the guillotine are likely to be inexplicably linked in my mind from here on out.Report

    I got a busy weekend coming up. Tonight the whole family is going to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Tomorrow, we take my son to the airport so he can fly back to Florida and visit the rest of his family. Sunday my wife and I go to hear Handel’s Messiah.

    Today is also the last day of work before our two weeks of vacation, so it is like a really long weekend.Report

    I’b sig wid a code. A nasty virus, actually, which laid out most of my coworkers for a couple of weeks each. My immune system fought valiantly but finally succumbed to the siege yesterday.

    So I am sitting around drinking tons of liquids while said immune system goes all Fields of Pelennor on the virus, in the hopes that I’ll be functional / past contagious for all the things this weekend.

    Thank goodness for podcasts and dumb facebook games. And comforting fever dreams.Report

    I have to host the holiday party on Wednesday for the four car dealerships I work for now. I was very sad that folks insisted on having a white elephant gift exchange. They don’t pay me for this particular task.

    This weekend is all preparing for Christmas. I am the only family member from Oregon going to California for the holiday, so now I have to take all of the gifts from the Oregon family to the California family. I need a “pony express” sticker for my new car, and probably a trailer to get all the junk in. When I’m not madly rushing around this weekend in preparation, I will be celebrating birthdays and holidays in the true spirit by drinking, eating and being merry with friends. The best gifts can not be bought.Report

    Cleaning and greening at church tomorrow. It is fun. It’s a work session, but not unduly onerous, and then we have lunch together in the basement. It is an excellent bonding and fellowship activity, and I’m not a touchy-feely “bonding and fellowship” kind of guy. Putting the tree up is an engineering triumph. A local Christmas tree farm every year donates a big-ass tree to the church. This involves guy wires and a surprising amount of hardware. Fortunately we do it every year, so the crew has it down pretty well, and it gives the guys a chance to do guy things together.

    I bring the two girls every year. At first this was to give the wife some free time to, e.g. wrap presents. They are getting old enough that we can give them jobs to do with reasonable assurance that they will be done. The eight year old has a semi-conflict with a Girl Scout activity. I asked her which she wanted to do, and it turned out that she regards going with me to cleaning and greening to be a beloved holiday tradition that she couldn’t bear to miss. Who knew? We’ll leave a little early so she can make at least part of the Girl Scout event.Report

    Lets see, cleaning and more cleaning for the holidays. Reading a bit, dodging rain a bit, that kind of thing. Preparing for the Xmas, which I should be rapping presents right now…

    Oh, and watching semi-obscure ’70’s movies on the youtube.Report
