bundled up, walkabout, snow

random musings

Nell is playing on the satellite while I work this afternoon. Which reminded me about Michael Jackson. The local talk jocks have been making much of Michael Jackson's looks, including his nose. Is it just me, or does he look like he's trying to become Jody Foster? Maybe it's just the nose.

From the paper -

Merlene Davis wrote a column yesterday that succeeded in making me feel young. There's a feat. She wrote about the March of Dimes and what they're about. She was surprised to learn that they fight birth defects. I was surprised, reading her column to learn that they originally fought polio.

I thought all the drama was over for Critter, but no. It seems that Jessamine County is considering whether to establish a Ninth Grade School. If they do, it would be effective as of 2005, and mean that Critter would attend East Jessamine two years, then switch to West Jessamine. Possibly commuting to East for any technology classes. Looks like I'm going to miss part of work tomorrow night to attend the community meeting.

It looks like the man who's been serving time in a women's jail will get to stay in the state women's prison where he was recently transferred.

Last week, Brody made the front page, in an effort to rescind a school tax increase in Clark county. Today, he was mentioned again, this time on the front page of the City/Region section.

In business notes, FAO Schwarz is failing. The article indicates they plan to liquidate Zany Brainy and sell off FAO and Right Start.

Kentucky Christmas Chorus

The Kentucky Christmas Chorus is next Tuesday. Critter wants to stay home; Tigger wants to go. Anyone wanna go with us?

I've read the paper, washed dishes, run most of the laundry through the machines (I've put off changing out of my sweats before washing that load), and I've opened yesterday's mail. No coupons to speak of, this week.

I've gotta leave the house early to take leather by Illusions and get a check for Erosul. On the way home from school today, I'm stopping at Joseph-Beth and FuncoLand for the boys to buy birthday presents for their parties on Saturday.

I updated the Rookettes records and generated this year's Holiday handouts - potluck signup and reminder about the gift exchange.
