The husbear and me

The husbear and me out at the local watering hole a few weekends ago.

The gay bar down in Fayetteville is called "Tangerine" (and I wish to your god that a straight person picked the colors out!). The "Tang" caters to the younger, college crowd. I feel old there. I think that's why we tend to travel more these days—to go to cities with bars that have people in our same age groups.

Speaking of travel, we will be heading down to Dallas for TBRU in two weeks! Real men in a real city.

Oh—forget about attempting to get a "serious" picture from either of us... ever.

Until next time...

70 to 20 in One Day

It was 70 degrees this weekend and yesterday morning. Then it started raining and the temperature started dropping. Then it snowed. We got about 4 inches of snow last night and it is now 20 degrees.

I was "nice" and went out to dust off and start the husbear's car while he was getting ready for work. It will probably be a short day for him anyway. Almost everything in the area has closed down: schools, businesses and gawd-knows-what-else.

Damned weather... no wonder I'm ill.

I am still under the weather so I'm staying home from work one more day. I did remote in to check my email. Mistake. Looks like I'll be busy when I get back to work. Wait—I'm always busy!

Erik's Jeep covered in snow
And I don't think my Jeep likes being covered...

There's one thing I've learned about the weather in Arkansas: if you don't like it, it will change. If you do like it, it will also change. (I guess that's two things I've learned.)

At least everything looks clean with a fresh snow covering everything....

Until next time...

B-52s "Hot Corner" Free MP3 Download Available Now!

This came across my bulletins on myspace tonight:

Rhapsody.com is currently hosting a free MP3 of the B-52s track "Hot Corner" from the upcoming album Funplex.

Go to http://www.rhapsody.com/freeweeklymp3s and download now!

Woo Hoo!!!!! I love me some B-52s!

Aside: I noticed they dropped the apostrophe out of their name—from "the B-52's" to "the B-52s". I wonder what that's about?

Until next time...

Visually Appealing?

This is me, sitting at my computer, still feeling like crap:

I'm freezing—hence the hat—and the headphones are because "Family Guy" is playing on here and the husbear is in the other room watching a movie.

And here's the Husbear yesterday taking a break from yard work on the being-renovated front porch:

Apparently when he rests, the animals decide they need to come rest with him... almost like a bizarre Noah's ark kind-of thing. Odd.

Until next time...

So much for the Flu Shot

I was up all night with nausea then vomiting, cold chills, hot flashes, achy body and intestinal issues. My body slightly ached the last few days and I've been having intestinal issues a couple days before that. I do not know that it is the flu (as I am not a doctor) but it sure feels like it.

I got the flu shot a few months ago. For the first time ever. I guess it didn't work.

Why do we call it "the flu" and not what it really is? The flu sounds so less serious than "Influenza" does. And it is serious.

Just thought I'd share... as typing seems to be the only thing I can do that doesn't hurt much at the moment.

Until next time...
