December and January Updates

Wow.  I haven't posted anything in many weeks.  So it's time for some updates.

The work Christmas party was awesome.  I had fun bowling but the best was using the bumpers.  The ugly Christmas sweaters everyone wore were very funny.

The after-party was fun too.  Even if I don't remember all of the pictures.

Jean and I went Up North for Christmas to celebrate with the folks.  Many presents favorites include the Deliciously Deceptive cookbook by Jessica Seinfeld, ladybug slippers and an airline ticket to Arizona to visit my aunt and uncle.  They invited us down to visit them during snow-bird season and I have a longer weekend coming up and I guess we're gonna head down.

New Years was mostly eventful.  Jean, Lori and I went to Povlitski's to ring in the New Year.  This will have been our 4th year to do this.  The first two were High Noon, last year was Killer Hayseeds and this year was Maiden Dixie.  They were actually a really good band.  My only complaint would be that if they are going to call themselves a COUNTRY band, they played way too much rock'n'roll.  I didn't wear a hat, I didn't blow a horn, I didn't spin the annoying noisemaker, I didn't get a kiss.  Phleph!

In the past, I've never really thought much of new years resolutions but this year I've got a good one.  To be a better driver.  I, Hulee Britozio, do admit to be an offensive driver with occasional road rage.  Many drivers are my pet peeves....not signalling when changing lanes; driving 40 mph in a 55 mph zone especially when it's only one way without being able to legally pass you.  But I'm gonna try to not let it get to me and piss me off.  Wish me luck!
