Cue Da Yoopers.... Now.

Today, in my neck (finger? palm?) of the woods, AKA the great mitten state, it is the first day of firearm deer season.

Perhaps I worded that incorrectly. The deer don't have guns, nor are they made of guns, as I might have implied. But it's the first day you can hunt deer with a firearm.

I did it again, implying the deer have guns.

Anyway, I'm not hunting. Why? Because I have a February deadline. That's right. My JOB is getting in the way of what I want to do in my FREE TIME. The next person who says I don't have a job can explain to my editor why all my emails are suddenly coming from a tree stand in the woods.

I was pretty bummed about the no hunting development. For the past two years, I've been trying to get my butt out there to kill a living creature, but to no avail. However, when I look out at today's weather, I rejoice that I am not sitting in a blind somewhere freezing my carharts off.

It is snowing. Well, kind of. It's also raining. So really, it's snaining. Or rowing, I'm not sure. And it is miserable.

So, instead of climbing a ladder and tying myself to a tree in the hopes of spotting that elusive thirty point buck, I'm spending my morning at Fourth Coast, downing skim milk double lattes with sugar free caramel syrup and being, in general, warm and dry.

Alright, dear readers, what comforts dost thou turn to when the gales of November come wailing?

Cool, I just mixed faux Shakespeare with Gordon Lightfoot. My two favorite bards!


  1. Hot tea and fresh-baked cookies while cuddles under my double fleece blanket.

  2. cuddled...

    seems the fingers are too tired to type properly this morning.

  3. Right 'cheer on my creaky futon filled with books (3), CDs (2), the remote (no volume control), and lots of checklists that might be done by New Years.
    Hot tea. Having someone else cook.
    Looking at my bazoomba bookcase (alphabetized) and wondering which book is next.
    Not hunting forty point bucks. I already have vehicular rabbit-icide on my permanent record.

  4. Ooh, have you got an artists friend who could draw/PhotoShop a deer wielding a gun with an appropriately witty comment?

    Have a lovely day! :-)


Say some stuff! If you can't think of anything to say, leave a link to a cute dog picture. I'm easy.
