Another grueling day of football-viewing has drawn to a close and I am wiped. Looks like my fantasy football team, the Snow Monkeys, are headed down to defeat (their third in a row) and looking at a 6-4 record. Thankfully, they’re still in playoff contention. Joining me on this day of channel-flipping were fellow fantasy football GM’s Ivon Bartok, Patrick Gilmore, and Lawren Bancroft-Wilson.
On the menu –
I turned on the t.v. last night to some white guy rapping. Which can only mean one thing: Christmas shopping season is upon us!
So, what are your holiday plans? I’ll be Montreal-bound with Akemi to spend Christmas with mom and sis, leaving the gang –
– in the care of our dog nanny and her boyfriend who’ll be moving in while we’re away.
Speaking of the gang, Maximus’s blood test and x-rays came back a-okay, meaning he’s good to go for surgery on Wednesday. The procedure will remove part of the mass on his inside cheek and hopefully make him a little more comfortable.
Speaking of which – lately, I’ve been stricken by this mystery pain that comes and goes. Now I’m no doctor, but I think I might have pulled a fallopian tube. Anyway, it goes much more than it comes so I’ll just monitor it for the time being. In case things take a turn for the worse, however, I’m going to need you guys to monitor the blog so that you can swing by and give me a lift to the hospital if I need it. Thanks.
Taking a break from leisure reading to study more Japanese. The other day, we met a Korean exchange student who was conversational in Japanese after spending a year in Tokyo. Conversational after one year of immersion! I’ve been listening to those damn CD’s for years and I’m lost three sentences into any conversation. I’ve heard that most language learners have an easier time understanding a foreign language rather than speaking it – which I find altogether bizarre. I understand next to nothing but can have wonderful chats with myself.
