Post of 2012, and already slacking. 6 days in. Just used the Starbucks app to register a Starbucks card and then pay for my short Caramel Macchiato by scanning it. Pretty cool. Rang in the first day of the new year with some food poisoning. Probably turned me off of prime rib for a bit. Shouldn't eat a medium rare leftover after a week in the fridge. Not pleasant at all. But only lasted a night/day. Had some miscommunication on New Year's Eve day, so had to bring Lucy with me when I had to come in to work on a Saturday. I don't think she liked that. Had to come in on Monday to finish up what I couldn't. Tracy came down and we got lunch on her day off. That was nice. She actually took a full day off and dropped Lucy off at my mom's. Good idea too as she's fighting off a cold. Started watching Greek again. Figured out how to get Sony Reader books unDRMed and into iBooks. So that's nice. Been reading a lot of comics, specifically, G.I. Joe from IDW. They actually blamed the subprime thing on a villain who gave the heroes a choice between stopping that financial crisis or a poison gas attack. Which one really is worse, in the long run? Finally taking down Christmas decorations this weekend. Yuck. Tempted to cut up the tree before sticking it in bags for removal from the premises. Not sure what's going on this weekend, but nothing too extravagant.
