Stocking cap already - The life of Wagster
A tale of a city boy in the country.
Stocking cap already

-There was ice covering my motorcycle tarp yesterday as I pulled it off before the ride to work.  The coldest day that I have taken the bike to work so far has been 36 degrees.  At 60mph 35 degrees computes to a 17 degree windchill.  That explains why I'm freezing when I get to work. 

-yesterday I wore my stocking cap for the first time this season.

-we spent thursday through saturday in Milwaukee with my parents where they had a short but very sweet ceremony to renew their vows.  It was a little like a family reunion with all my brothers, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews and grandmas (and one aunt). 

-tomorrow i fly to mInneapolis via philly for my good friend's wedding.  It will be my first time back in Minneapolis since we left 9 months ago.  Has it been that long?  It feels like ages.  The circumstances of our lives feel so very different now. 

-the volvotron is officially dead in my mind, I've actually begun looking for a junkyard that will come get it out of my yard.  I've also started looking for a truck, but I think I can be without on for a little while. 

-looking at a pay stub the other day, i realized that I did not get paid overtime for a forty two hour week plus a paid holiday.  bummer.

-KT starts her new job as a parent education professional next week wednesday.  woot.

-the leaves are starting to turn.  the temperature is dropping at night.  we've turned the heat on. 

-I've started reading Thomas Merton's New Seeds of Contemplation.  And its GREAT.  

-What gets me the most about this ridiculous presidential campaign is that these two senators HAVE A JOB TO DO.  Aren't they supposed to be in Washington DC voting on things?  For heaven's sake, they've been campaigning for TWO YEARS!  I wish i could take two years off for traveling round the country flapping my jaw. 

-Solutions: Legally limit campaigning to the six-months before the election.  Also, institute term limits on all congressional seats: two terms.  Get the cronies, hacks, lackeys, and good-ol'-boys outta there. 

wishing you a pleasant evening,
