Christmas in August

Apparently, in addition to getting Doctor Who back up and running from oblivion, the BBC believe that everyone should share in the Christmas spirit by getting their very own elf name.

Mine? Let's see...I'm...hunh? "Tumbleflump Kissy-Elf?!?" What the crap...?

Tolkien would be ashamed...that's not a real elf name.

Many people will be shocked to know I actually HAVE one...

...let alone use it:

You Are 20% Left Brained, 80% Right Brained

The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

"How's the weather?"


I think it's been raining for 40 days and 40 nights. I mean, it's been nothing but non-stop intermittent thunderstorms for the longest time. If there is ever a day without 156% humidity around here, I may just pass out from shock.

And for some reason, this crazy weather has triggered me getting sick (or, if it's not the root cause of it, it ain't helped none). I also think that working for almost every single day -- literally -- since July's worn down my immune system. Kinda like a bad tire. That's how I feel right now. You know that kind: it's down to its last tread; it's gonna blow at my given minute; but instead of buying new tires (or, in my case, taking a day off for rest and recuperation), you keep driving on the darn thing. Why? Because it's easier to keep running on the old tire than it is to pay out for a new one, with money that you don't have, for one that will need to have to take time to be broken in, one that will just be a hassle to change, and one that you will have to take the time off to go to the mechaninc and have it taken care of.

So -- you drive until your tire blows out, leaving you stranded on the side of the road in the middle of the night...alone...and in the dark...

Or, if you're a human like me, you get sick as a freakin' dog and have a massive asthma attack that
almost sends you to the hospital, you run a fever of 100+ for about five days, and you get an average of three hours of sleep each night. This is apparently MY coping mechanism. -- and no, I don;t have the sense to come in out of the rain or to take care of myself while I'm too busy yelling at other people to take care of themselves.

...but on a happier note: my parents have new puppy.

My mom always said I was worth a million...

I am worth $1,803,900 on

Hoo. Been a long few weeks, kids. But, I'll have tons of new info soon, answering questions, making wisecracks, and talking about the fun of asthma.

But for now? Sleep.
