Why am I still up, why does sleep evade me, I need to be in Carthage in less then 10 hours for a family get together…and Christmas gifts still to buy…not the Carthage that needed to be destroyed by the oratory of the ancient roman who’s name escapes me at present but the modern Carthage in upstate NY that will probably self implode because all the paper mills have moved south…most of my holiday shopping has been done at my local savings and loan but I still have gifts to buy for my sibs and their others…

I am as pissed off as I have even been with a survivor finally…don’t get me wrong…that Yule won as not a surprise, that Ozzi was a 4 to 3 loser well that was expected…but that Becky got no support at all is bullshit…if she doesn’t make the choice she makes from square one the game takes a totally different path…

I’m not saying she should have won…but no votes…that’s ridiculous…

Becky you have my vote…not that that will give you anything but it is what it is

Have of late just switched over to the new beta version of blogger/google for my blog host…although I doubt that I will ever use all of the new features available…seems to be reasonably solid…and publishing is much faster…

PS: what I a rush…I typed the word “google” into my blog and my spell check didn’t recognize the word…gave me a misspell…heads will roll at google I’m sure for that error…
I did not watch the entire replay of the current “Top Chef”, (did watch the elimination table again) but I think Mia made a huge mistake…as the best of the comfort food chefs left I think she had a strong chance at the finally four…and I don’t think there was anyway that Elia…who Mia thought she was saving by withdrawing was gone…Michael in my opinion was gone…he did nothing in this challenge but run food from the back of the house to the front…I will miss Mia’s down home southern take on the rest of the challenges…I respect her for her, but I think she made the wrong choice…if you disagree check out how Chef Tom reacted…his comments told me that Elia was not gone, and Mia was throwing away her chance for nothing…
Today was the gentle day that my current state of being required, the next two week at work may prove to be more then I’m really willing to handle…because my clerk is off until the new year…but a less then normal commitment to church this AM…a brief run to work…and a nice bunch…I am starting to be too much of a regular at one of the local restaurants…and the cashier tried to guess what I would order…most times she would have been right but was in a different space today and was more then happy to “kid” her a little…my fav waitress…if I was 100 years younger I’d probably chase her until she let me catch her but I’m not…she keeps my water and coffee filled and clears my used plates ( buffet style)…
