odds and ends

The updates have been infrequent. But, it's not like the people read this nonsense don't talk to me on a somewhat regular basis anyway. But, in case you missed it:

I've started a new job with new hours. It has forced me to give away a few games from my bruins season tickets. I probably could have sold them, but people appreciate gifts way more.

The holidays are over. Don't ask me how they were. I worked Christmas Eve, Day and same for new years.

We caught the christmas mouse that was lurking in the apartment; come to find out after the fact he had a taste for an old ornament filled with hershey kisses. That's why he'd make a b-line for the tree every night... well, until the night he got stuck on the glue trap (oh the humanity).

For my new years resolution, I actually quit the gym and have been on a candy/sweets binge for the past five days. Take that, 2009!

We're getting a puppy in 3 weeks. I'm pretty excited about that. It's an irish jack russell terrier. I'd hate to have to clean up after him if he turns out to be a Guiness drinker.

We've got a name picked out but we aren't telling anyone yet. Is it bad to give an Irish dog a Hawaiian name?

He's supposed to meet 100 strange/scary people in the first four weeks for socialization reasons. So basically, one trip on the green line would take care of that.

The thing i'm looking forward to the most: we were in the pet store the other day. they sell doggie life jackets. People will buy anything. Myself included, I'm getting one for the dog - and taking him on our kayaking adventures this summer.

The thing i'm least looking forward to: the whole waking up early on weekends to take him out to piss... oh yeah, and the ride on the green line.

I've resorted to listening to NPR on the drive to work. You want to talk about road rage. anyway, today as i was pulling into work, they ran a test of the emergency broadcast system. it didn't work. might want to get that one fixed... you know, in case there's an emergency.

I miss riding my bike. Flipping someone off is way more fun than beeping your horn at them.

and lastly, i bought a pair of tickets to the symphony for two weeks from now. got an awesome discount through an "under 40" program.
never got the tickets though. emailed them today to find out why, they said i have to prove my age before they give them up. apparently the NPR listening raises alarms.
