Feeling better

So I'm finally feeling better. Not quite 100% but close enough. And we did some shopping yesterday so about half the kids are done, his mom is done, one of his sisters is done and my brother is done. But even with all them we're still not even half finished. We're supposed to go again tonight after I get off work but I have a feeling it won't happen.

The football game tonight is an important one for the Saints. I'm already a Bears fan but tonight I have to be as big a fan of them as I am of the Saints. They really really need the Vikings to lose to help with the wild card slot. So I have a feeling he's going to try to convince me to stay home and watch it. But after they win then I have to go back to not being as big a fan, especially on the 30th when we'll be seeing them at Soldier Field. Now HD lost a bet last year when they met last time and that bet was that he'd have to be a Bears fan the next time they played. He was going to try to bribe the person he made the bet with by offering him the 4th ticket to the game for free in exchange of not having to be a fan. But the guy can't go so I asked him what he'd do. He said he might welch on it. Or he'd wear a hat but still have on his Saints shirt. On the back of the hat he'd put a sign stating he lost a bet. I like that idea the most but it is a dilemma since it's not really the way the deal is supposed to go. But then, I don't think he really cares to much, it's not like the guy would know since he's not going.

I'm not completely opposed to the idea of staying home though, since we still haven't decorated the tree yet. It looks awfully sad over in it's corner with no lights or ornaments. If we stay home then I can decorate while watching the game. And maybe even get the presents wrapped. Hmm, maybe I'll suggest staying home. I don't know though, we really need to get the shopping done. I hate dilemmas!

Media quote of the day: I'd say I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I'm not. I excel at not giving a shit. Experience has taught me that interest begets expectation, and expectation beget disappointment, so the key to avoiding disappointment is to avoid interest. A equals B equals C Equals A, or whatever. I also don't have a lot of interest in being a good person or a bad person. From what I can tell, either way, you're screwed. Bad people are punished by society's laws, and good people are punished by Murphy's Law. So you see my dilemma. - George - Dead Like Me.

Now that was a great show, too bad it didn't last.

They won, but they looked ugg-lee doing it.

That whole game was ugg-lee! And by mid morning I was feeling awful again, by the evening I was even worse. It wasn't even half time and I was slumped over on the couch barely able to keep my eyes open from the pain in my head and face. But I held on for the Saints until the end of that sad sad game.

Ah, dilemmas! You know what Yogi Berra said - "when you come to a fork in the road, take it!"
