Pumpkin carving will also commence this evening for us.
"Wind" is my least favorite weather condition.
My dog has found the heat vent that he prefers at our new house.
My wife is finally using a Groupon massage today that I got her for Mom's Day.
Our trashy neighbors across the street have their mailbox in a bucket filled with sand.

1. Had my snow tires put on the car on Saturday, so of course it has been warm ever since.
2. I got a bad feeling the election next week won't turn out well for me.
3. I think they are called "hurricanes" because a "himicane" would just sit around and watch sports.
4. If money is the root of all evil, I could stand for a lot more evil in my life.
5. Just watching Zooey Deschanel do anything makes me feel better.

1. I'm having a tough time focusing today. I mean a real tough time.
2. I'm starving. Is it lunch time yet?
3. I think I will buy a couple bottles of sangria from a local sangria maker tonight
4. Junior was complaining how all his friends have android-powered game tablets and he doesn't, so I set up my old Nintendo and Super Nintendo for him in the basement. Duck Hunt, Zelda, and Mario rocks!
5. vinegar certainly is a versatile solution

1. My feet are not as cold today. All it takes it preparation.
2. I am having my family over to eat food and watch the news tonight.
3. My kid is going to school today, but thinks he shouldn't have to because of the election.
4. I am listening to Christmas music in my office.
5. Sometimes I wonder if I just didn't answer my phone for the day if I would get in trouble.

1. I voted this morning.
2. When I was driving home, I was surprised to discover that it was almost time for lunch... until I realized that I never re-set the clock in my car last weekend. :r:
3. I'll be going to bed early tonight because I have an early morning meeting, so I'll miss the election coverage on TV.
4. I refuse to make any predictions about the outcome.
5. I think it's odd that we elect state supreme court judges.

1) Got up to take the kids to school so Mrs. G could sleep in.
2) Daughter and I giggled as Chester the Fat Cat sat and scooped food from his bowl so he could eat it off the floor.
3) Had a Sunday-like morning with the newspaper, but there's so little of it now that I'd read pretty much everything in under an hour.
4) Started The Greater Journey by David McCullough after the paper. Fantastic so far.
5) I hear David McCullough's voice and his cadence when I read his writing. It's a little creepy in a really cool way.

Bonus:
6) We're going to vote shortly then off to lunch at a restaurant with the best selection of beers anywhere in s. Indiana. Plus excellent pizza/calzones, etc.:)

4. Tonight I will go for an x-ray of the metallic artifacts in my knee.
5. This time next week I'll be in Pittsburgh.

1. I get melancholy every now and then. lt's a disease common to mountain men.

2. Now is one of those times.

3. Sometimes while waiting for the other shoe to drop, I wonder from far up will it hit me.

4. Snow is pretty awesome for the first three days, then it is a pain in the tush.

5. But children sledding does make me smile.

1. Thanksgiving meal planning has begun.
2. After a very mild winter last year, I'm hoping for a brutally cold winter with lots of snow.
3. I normally would never say that, but for work and school we have virtually no commute of any great length now.
4. Plus the Great Lakes really need the water.
5. As do our winter tourism businesses.

1. I too wouldn't object to a nasty winter this year. I'm talking about the type of snowstorms where they close City Hall.
2. Remember all that weight I lost a few weeks back? I managed to find it once again!
3. I've never done the Secret Santa thing for the 8.5 years I've been on Cyburbia, I wonder if I should this year
4. I am nearly out of the cases of Aecht Schlenkerla and Old Rasputin I picked up in Frankenmuth a couple months ago. Time for another run?
5. Remember all those cool economic geography maps that showed what's produced where? Seems like you never see 'em anymore.
