Another year, another posting

Trying to get in a post before 2009, and now I'm on the verge of utter rambling.
And, I'm not wearing any corrective lenses, so the spelling is going to be atrocious. And I'm not spell checking. This is me, rebeling society's standards through laziness.

I have to get my ass in gear quick. The past two days, I've been doing nothing but sleeping, which is usually the start of the funk. It is waaaaaay too cold outside to leave my house. I do eventually have to leave to buy some supplies for New Years. Happygoth, Witchgoddess, and their little goblin (yes, they have procreated) are coming over for tacos and game entertainment of some sort. Maybe Mario Party 8 on the Wii. Maybe a bit of Magic: The Gathering. Who knows?

Christmas was good. The big gift I got from my sweetums was the entire Sandman series (graphic novels by Neil Gaiman) in 4 volumes, and porcelein Sandman book ends. I got his the entire 10 series of Stargate SG1. Hours of neglect from each other... that is what the holidays are about.

Baby J got enormously spoiled, as usual. What was different this year is that, for a moment in time, we had money. D's grandfather paseed away, and left him some inheritance. With some, I went to the City and bought a wedding dress (actually, my mom paid for the dress) and picked out bridesmaid dresses. We paid 3 out of 4 credit cards. That was a BIG one. D bought piles of stuff he wanted, including a used snowmobile. With a month living the life of the higher class, our run has come to an end. But man, what a run! It would have been smart to save some money for the wedding, the upcoming recession, etc. *shrugs* I just gave some friendly suggestions and toughts, and let him go with his money. Now, looking back, he has finally said that his money needs to become "our" money. I'm glad he's finally turning around a bit....

The semester has just a month left, and then I will be teaching some different classes. One is my Grade 11 Literary English. I need to break into my school soon to see what resources I can use/steal/so on. I though about doing something a little more innovative and separate my course with themes instead of topics/styles of writing. But, that takes a whole lot more work. *shrugs* We'll see, I suppose. I have a shoping bag jammed full of marking to do first. Yay for leaving things to the last minute... yet again.....
