I arrived safely at O'Hare, four hours behind schedule do to "technical difficulties" (read: water in electronic instrumentation prevents any take-off not deliberately designed to cause death and destruction). The trip was its usual steaming pile of joy, but I'll not speak of that.
We're nearing the end of 2006. And a fine year she was. Allow me a brief review. I'll give you the first sentence I published each month, just because my body has no clue what time it is, and I'm not feeling the least bit sleepy...
January: "And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care..."
Commentary: Dang, this time last year, I was in Hawaii.
February: "The following is plucked from a conversation I had with a class of first grade boys."
Commentary: First graders are cute.
March: "It appears that we're having issues with our district e-mail, and we aren't receiving/sending e-mails out-of-district."
Commentary: Sweet Jesus I live a boring, pathetic life. Is this the drivel I publish? Do you all hate me?
April: "Daylight Savings Time is a load of crap."
Commentary: I stand by this statement.
May: "Loki, meet everyone."
Commentary: That nutty dog has grown up so much since then!
June: "We took Loki (el Dog) swimming yesterday."
Commentary: I find my dog far too interesting, it would seem.
July: "I love our dog."
Commentary: I need a life.
August: "We're in Nunapitchuk."
Commentary: Indeed we were. For quite a while.
September: "Isn't it strange how you can know exactly what your faults/failings are and be completely powerless to fix them?"
Commentary: Yes, isn't it?
October: "PFD Time, that is."
Commentary: That is not a sentence, you grammatically-challenged, ape-brained waste of human protoplasm.
November: "It's getting cold."
Commentary: Wow, really? In ALASKA? I'm glad that I exist to document these unknown factoids and info-nuggets, because otherwise, how would the world know that it gets cold in Alaska in November?
December: "Yup, I'm still here."
Commentary: Or do I just think I'm still here? Is all of existence just an illusion?
