    1. Tonight's sunset is really beautiful... too bad my DH has the camera.
    2. I am so glad I discovered an alternate route home before the bridge construction started.
    3. I hate getting stuck behind a truck loaded with sand and/or gravel that is spilling over the sides.
    4. I heard a new song by Graham Parker and the Rumour on the radio... I used to listen to them around 1979 or '80.
    5. It amazes me that I can recall the lyrics to songs I haven't heard in three or more decades when they're played on the radio.
    6. I feel guilty because my bird feeders are almost empty and I won't have a chance to get more bird seed and suet until the weekend.
    7. It's time to put another blanket on the bed... not because it's cold but because the dog keeps hogging the top sheet!
    8. I've had a pretty good week.
    9. There is no way in hell I'll be able to retire at age 65.
    10. I have no idea what sancocho is.

    1. Have a meeting tonight for everyone that's going to direct a radio show
    2. I took some cough syrup before going to bed and I still feel kinda spacey this morning.
    3. mind you, that's not entirely a bad thing
    4. I have about two minutes weekday mornings where I get to play with Junior - usually he wants to shoot each other with nerf guns
    5. Junior got a good report card and we heard encouraging remarks at parent teacher conferences so he got taken out to dinner at the place of his choice - Old Country Buffet
    6. I wish I could eat fish, but I am deathly allergic
    7. most people have certain phrases they habitually go to and end up overusing. Mrs. Maister's is "to be perfectly honest"
    8. I am beginning to emerge from the darkness that has filled me the last several weeks
    9. I feel like I have too many commitments at times
    10. I really need to talk to my writers about getting some better material for me

    1. I started the Turkey Day menu/shopping list last night.
    2. Instead of going away after Xmas, my wife and I might have a New Years party instead.
    3. I went out last Friday night with some friends, and friends of friends.
    4. After witnessing some behavior that evening, I realize why I prefer simple meals with friends as opposed to going out in a group to the bars.
    5. Does that make me old at 34?
    6. And by "behavior", I don't mean anything horrible, just stupid drunk sloppiness.
    7. We purchased an IKEA Kvartal Panel Track system to cover our door wall.
    8.. It was cheaper than vertical blinds, plus I can't stand vertical blinds.
    9. Now I just need to install it.
    10. For some reason, I have a great sense of optimism about how the "fiscal cliff" will be resolved.

    9. I guess 'Fiscal Cliff' is the new political buzzword talking point
    10. Let the games begin

    1. I'm not doing Secret Santa this year because of a history of those that don't play fair.
    2. I ate a donut this morning because it was an employee's birthday.
    3. I refinanced the last three years of my car loan today to save me over $50 a month on the payment.
    4. Who ever heard of refinancing a car loan?
    5. I blew out of the office early today to sign the refinance papers.
    6. My planning commission meeting had five items on the agenda today including one text amendment to the comp plan and one to the LDRs.
    7. The planning commission meeting lasted 30-minutes.
    8. It still surprises sometimes how much authority I have over the commission. In other words, they listen to me.
    9. I hate this cold, overcast, clammy weather.
    10. I'm taking tomorrow off to golf for a couple of days in Sandestin.

    1. People should not speak when their mouth is full.
    2. Hubby did the Turkey Trot this morning while I cheered.
    3. I was sad that I wasn't running along side him.
    4. People in Wisconsin are very nice but also very reserved.
    5. I was the only person cheering on people I didn't know.
    6. My knee still hurts.
    7. I am thankful for many many things including my in-laws.
    8. Thanksgiving with my in-laws means none of my mom's pumpkin pie or my grandmother's cranberry sauce.
    9. Instead we're having scalloped corn and coleslaw.
    10. Tranplanner, I wish you could join us. I'd be happy to share some turkey and coleslaw with you!

    1. Mrs. Maister is still too sick to 'do' Thanksgiving today, so we're going to have a vastly scaled down dinner on Saturday with immediate family
    2. It was nice being able to watch the parades without interruption this year.
    3. Junior got bored with the (Macy's) parade after about 40 minutes, but got a small bump in interest when the balloons came on
    4. even though there is no feast today I still intend to bust out a bottle of Christmas mead tonight that I got last Thanksgiving
    5. it was fun doing that 'ask me anything' thread. Other folks might want to try it some time
    6. I have not thought about work at all today (until this moment). Thats a Good Thing
    7. Watched 'my life with turkeys' on PBS last night. Very interesting - that guy lives with a lot of different types of animals but I get the impression he's not overly fond of humans
    8. we're having leftover Chicago style pizza for dinner tonight
    9. gobble gobble
    10. I hope everyone has a nice holiday

    1. I guess if you want to get something done around here you have to do it yourself
    2. I saw a really friendly and smart hund sitting in the drivers seat of the car next to me at the grocery store. He was looking at me with great inerest so I said "hi" and he said 'huffff' (translated: 'hi') back
    3. I like the dark brown M&M's best
    4. I seem to recall they actually made an M&M commercial that obliquely referenced the whole 'green M&M' myth thing
    5. I'm a bit inarticulate today for some reason
    6. I am doing sound effects for the upcoming performance of "It's a Wonderful Life"
    7. I have only two Aecht Schlenkerlas left in the emergency reserve bin
    8. I just love looking at maps. It's the one thing I really like about this gig
    9. Speaking of maps you should all go take a look at Yellowknife on Google streetview. I think you might be a little surprised (I was)
    10. popcorn is tasty and inexpensive. You should pop some tonight and watch Lord of the Rings.

    1. I will actually come up with 10 separate random things (and not simply take one idea and say several things about the same idea like some people)
    2. I wish it would hurry up and snow already.
    3. We put the second Christmas tree up last night (our artificial one). We call it the 'blue tree' because all the ornaments are either blue and/or white
    4. I ate a bacon, egg, cheese biscuit from McDonalds this a.m.
    5. Want to get some evil looks? It's easy, just drive through a trailer park in a city car.
    6. I intentionall held off on eating things like bacon, egg, cheese biscuits for the past week because I had to take a blood test on Monday for my annual physical
    7. I know I'm not as funny as I sometimes appear to think I am
    8. I wish I had a Nepalese flag to display out front. Talk about a cool national flag
