    1. I wonder where the phrase "jumped the shark" came from.
    2. That B&W cookie I had last night went very nicely with red wine.
    3. I almost fell asleep posting photos on Flickr afterwards.

    1. "Jump the Shark" came from Happy Days when the Fonz jumped over the shark. It was all downhill from there.
    2. The two main projects I was tasked with a year and a half ago when I got here are BOTH being voted on tonight for adoption.
    3. I think our one admin assistant has worked a total of 3 hours since the new year.
    4. Municipal elections are in September so every meeting from here on out is longer so everyone can posture.
    5. There's something very comforting about having a couple very old dogs who like nothing better than to just sit with their "people".
    6. My 8 year old neice got her mom's phone and texted me that I'm her favorite uncle. It made me tear up a bit.
    7. Any story that makes ESPN and Notre Dame both look silly is ok in my book.
    8. We haven't had any real bitter winter weather yet and I'm dreading when it does come.
    9. My boss is a really nice guy but has a very weird home life that I'm tired of hearing about.
    10. Very few things in life are absolutely black and white so I'm generally distrustful of people who seem to feel they are about a lot of issues.

    1. I think I’m going to be the only person in my wing of the office today.
    2. Crank up the crappy computer speakers!
    3. I was apparently smoking crack when I made up my New Year’s resolution.
    4. While it’s still a goal, I’m officially changing it to just go camping to two places I haven’t been yet but have been wanting to go.
    5. My son will enter kindergarten next year and the open houses/tours/information sessions have started.
    6. I want this open house/tour/information session phase to be over, I just want to know where he’s going to go.
    7. I really want him to get into a certain charter school here, but if his name doesn’t get pulled in the lottery, it’ll be ok, our district public school is supposed to be good.
    8. I’d like to find a way for my sister and I to eventually live in the same city.
    9. She currently lives in Indiana, but my company doesn’t have any offices there, plus I’m kind of a wimp about winter weather now.
    10. She is wise and doesn’t want to move here because the rent is too damn high.
    11. I wish January was a three paycheck month.
