The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors


LJ Idol voting closes today, and the polls are so close! Even if you don't normally take part in it, we're at the Top 15, so there aren't too many entries to read and the stories are really good. All of the entries are here, including mine, and you can read and vote on them pretty easily. Plus, discover great writing!

Yard update: rose trees are pruned now, leaving only all the other roses on the property for HSH to do and me to pitch in on. About 60? I think? (No, we did not plant those—they were here when we bought the house). Also, my son investigated the back yard, and there were no bodies left after Saturday night's incident. Frankly, I was really worried about the possiblity of a dead skunk being back there. Yikes.

Work update: that thing I've been stuck on for the last 1 1/2 weeks looks as if it may be due to the tester misconfiguring something. I'm keeping my fingers crossed—I am SO ready for that project to be over.

Do you have any New Year's Resolutions or goals?

ETA: Today's bike ride had beautiful weather, but it was _smelly_. Gah. Half the ride (beginning and end) smelled like dog manure and/or rot, and it was awful. The wind must be blowing from the direction of the dump today. Wow.
