i love my city

we are snowed into albuquerque. all the out-bound interstates are closed, as is the airport. nothing to do but cuddle up on the couch with the kitties and watch a movie. so...

i just finished 'little miss sunshine.' i imagine that the writer made the hoover family albuquerqueans because there is something phenomenally humorous about the word 'albuquerque.' but, whether intended or not, this family is extraordinarily albuquerquean. case in point: the pageant scene. or, rather, the pageant scene. if you're from here or have visited for any length of time, you totally know what i mean.

december rocks!

wow... things have been busy around here. early last week i got a box from my sp9. so much great stuff!!! (more on that later.) friday was my birthday, celebrated with a lovely holiday open house at my place and a fierce, alcohol-fueled game of trivial pursuit. and i spent every waking hour this weekend on the job for my last event of 2006 - the smith-kuhfahl wedding.

i'm sick and i'm tired. but, damn, am i happy!

oh, the pretty mens

here in albuquerque the sun is shining bright and the highs are in the region of 34 degrees. if that doesn't mess with one's head, nothing will. i have all the extraneous rooms closed off (read: every room except the livingroom and my bedroom) as my home is a testiment to 1950's architectural engineering. this beasty in the livingroom

is meant to warm the entire house - around corners, down halls, two or three doors away. between the temperatures in town and the beasty's inefficiency, there has been a goodly amount of 'hybernating' under the blankets on the couch watching dvds and under the blankets in the bedroom attempting to sleep.

i've watched all my christmas movies and i've moved on to television series that need catching up on. i am on the final dvd of 'lost: season 2.' you know, there is not a single unattractive man on this program. last season i was absolutely enamoured of sawyer. this season, my affection - and, i must say, lust - have turned to locke. i'll be interested to see what next season brings, though i'll wait until the entire series is on dvd to find out.

(p.s. i will hang, draw and quarter any soul who attempts to spoil a single second of season three for me.)
