So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Doing the dance of love

Today today, it comes out today! Hot damn it comes out today!

Ok, so I'm paraphrasing the dad in one of my holiday favorites A Christmas Story, but it comes out today! What am I blabbering about incessantly? Why, Lord of the Rings, of course. The extended version of all three is out today. It is the ONLY thing I asked for this Christmas from Army of Dad and I'm so excited.

I'll be doing the dance of love till I open it Christmas morning. Ok, well after Dec. 22, I'll be on crutches and won't be doing any dancing for a few days, but in my heart I'll be doing the dance of love. I'm heading to the doctor after I drop off Stinkerbellet at preschool. I'll be doing my pre-op appointment for my bone spur surgery. After that, I'm sure I'll go to the hospital to do more pre-op tests. I just hope I don't get the lab tech who tried to feel me up last time. Let me clarify that, I WON'T get the lab tech who gave me the creepies last time.

Uzz let me borrow his Elf DVD, so we'll probably watch that this week. Army of Dad and I get to celebrate tonight sans children at his company's annual holiday bash complete with tasty food, lots of beer and soda and a white elephant gift exchange. Should be fun. Tomorrow, I have a Christmas party in Arlington with the indpendent public relations group I belong to. Thursday, Friday and all weekend, Army of Dad is doing an inventory of the warehouse he manages. So, we won't see each other hardly at all. Yikes.

    I think my company still refers to it as our Christmas Party.

    Was that post title an (un)intentional Nylons reference?

    Absolute unintentional reference. Are there some hose that do the dance of love? I'm so confused.

    I get the reference as far as A Christmas Story goes, but didn't realize I made a good one. :)

    My oldest loves to get his heavy coat on and tell me:

    I think Hugh was making reference to a song by the Nylons called Dance of Love:-) Don't ask me why I know that:-)

    Many people have rid bone spurs naturally. You may be interested in visiting a Bone Spur Help website for more information on bone spurs.

    Unfortunately or fortunately as the case may be, I had surgery on Dec. 22. Recovering now from it. Thanks for the tip, though.
