Happy Birthday to Mom! She said that Dad fixed breakfast for her [sort of] and hopefully he took her somewhere nice for dinner. He also gave her a new PDA since her Clie is not holding its charge.
And even though it was Mom's birthday, I received yet another present: a book was delivered to the office this morning from Mom and Dad. That's to go with the other EIGHT books I received on Christmas Day from Mom, Dad, Gary, Suki, Miss Callie. [Who knew that cats could order from Amazon?]. Which is why I will not be updating the blog very often in the future because I will be spending every waking moment reading.
[OK, maybe I am exaggerating a bit].
Speaking of extra Christmas presents, may I just say . . . EAGLES?! Christmas Day in Dallas, the entire season once again riding on it, and they turned in a crushing performance against the Cowboys. My bookstore buddy, Jeff Garcia, was fired up, both the defensive and offensive lines were outstanding and Brian Westbrook proved once again that it is a crime that he was not selected for the Pro Bowl.
Westbrook is just such a talented player and fills so many different roles on the team. But he's not flashy, and since he switches between running back and receiver and tackle and punt returner and . . . [well, you get the point] he doesn't stack up all of his stats in one catagory. So he isn't viewed as a marquee star and didn't get the votes needed for Pro Bowl selection. But he deserves it, truly.
Oh, now where was I? Oh yes: E-A-G-L-E-S. EAGLES! Now we need to beat Atlanta next weekend to clinch the NFC East Division. Who would have thunk? It was quite the cap on a lovely Christmas Day. But not quite as exciting as the Sambo's Restaurant Postcards that I got in my stocking. That Santa! How un-PC!
[I'm sure the elves are not working in a Union shop, either!]
SAVE YOUR CORKS!!
[Only 4,990 more needed for our Wine Cellar Wall. Thanks to Mom for adding 39 to the count and to Santa for adding three!]
Quote du jour:
"Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in: but as a rule the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.”
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860) German philosopher
