Post 2232 - A Day Off

It is a crazy cold day in Nova Scotia.  The roads were a mess.  People were late for work.  There were accidents as the roads weren't as clear as they should have been.  Lots of accidents.  And some fools were still riding their bicycles in this weather.  Did I say they were fools?

At least, that is what they tell me.  You see, I had today off.   Lots of sleeping in.  Lots of warmth.  And absolutely nothing to do with going out in that crap.

Newbie and Cindy were glad that we were home.  I was glad to be home; the more I heard about how lousy it was outside, the more grateful I was to be inside.

I made brunch for both of us.  It was one of my world-famous omelettes.  I may make my world-famous French toast over the weekend.

I spent a big chunk of the day down here in my home office.  The laundry room is right outside.  I have done many loads of wash today.  I am pleased to report that I have some clean underwear again.  Not as pleased as the people at my work, of course, but close.  And I have washed probably a dozen of my dress shirts and a half dozen pairs of the pants I wear to work.  This is all good as it no longer means I have to borrow some of Patricia's clothes on Monday morning.   We will keep that a secret, ok?

Let's see here.  I watched "Shaun of the Dead" today.  We both watched "Moving Day", starring Will Sasso and Victor Garber and Eddie Murphy's brother Charlie.  It was Mike Clattenburg's latest project, and it was not bad at all.  I think if they wanted to make this into a series, shot in Halifax of course, then  that would be something I would tune into.  Charlie looks and acts like a down-on-his-luck Eddie Murphy, which I guess he is.

Tomorrow will be more of the same.  I will wash many more clothes.  I will watch one or two more zombie movies.  Patricia will be upstairs on the couch watching her cooking shows.  Hours and hours of them.  I figure I can either tear my eyes out and rip my ears off, or channel my energy into more positive activities, so I will be down here for the bulk of the day.  With Newbie.  Just us guys.

What are your plans for the weekend?  And, what are you wearing, anyway?

See you tomorrow.
