…. and not for Godot this time. … at least I hope not.
Day 3 of this posting every day stuff and I’m already getting a bit bored with it. I really don’t have that much to say. I’m waiting for the heating/cooling repairman. Its cold in here today. Its so cold its snowing! Cool – look you can make the snow move around when you move your mouse over it. Okay, so I’m easily amused…. It is cold but it is livable. Its not like I’m in Minnesota (about 50 degrees outside and in). But it kind of makes you not want to do anything other than leave the house which I can’t cause I’m waiting for the repairman. It makes me realize just how lucky I am. So many people don’t have shelter or heat or warm clothes or enough food not only in far off corners in the world but right where we live. We take for granted so much and complain bitterly about our jobs, the traffic, the Christmas rush. There are so many people in the U.S. and abroad who would be thrilled to have a job, be stuck in a car (not everyone has that luxury and it is a luxury) in traffic or have enough money to go out Christmas shopping and be rushing around to buy presents for loved ones.
Sorry for the sermon, its aimed more at me than you (whoever you may be). I’ll make it up to you – here’s a video of Dean Martin singing Its a Marshmallow World. I love the version of him and Frank singing this but this, well, this you can’t beat – Dean with a cigarette in his hand singing the song with less than heartfelt sentiments. I can almost hear him thinking – is it over yet, roll commercial, oh geez more lyrics on that teleprompter ….
