It is so cold ---

How cold is it? It is cold enough to make me want to forego almost anythin' just to find somewhere warm for awhile. I am thinkin' of lookin' through my movies and findin' one worth watchin' and then puttin' it in the bedroom VCR so that I can entertain myself while buried under that nice layer of goose down. In fact, I am thinkin' I ought to break the other comforter out as well, just so I have enough goosedown piled on top of me to make sure I am warm. We do have to keep that navel in superb shape, ya know, otherwise there would be nothin' to report 'bout in these Nightly Navel Gazin' Reports™, would there? It is, however, gonna be a bit difficult to report on the condition of my navel this evenin' as it is just a bit too cold for the navel to make any type of appearance where I could possibly gaze at it for awhile. I might have a chance later, upon the goosedown layerin' but I almost positive that there will be no way I am thereafter expose it to frigid air just so I can report on its condition. Well, tell ya what, if I find it in anythin' other than satisfactory condition, I will indeed come back and update this report. If there is no later update, allow that to be your sign that the navel is in great shape.

Now, for a report on somethin' very strange that occurred today, read the extended entry.

I got this call this afternoon from someone. They said, "Hi, this is gave their name, and I need to make amends to you." I said, "Huh? Who is this again?" "Uh, this is gave their name, don't you remember me? We were married about ten years ago." All of a sudden, that first name wormed its way into my recollection, the last name was new, of course. Anyway, we chatted for a bit, mostly about how her mother was found raped and murdered two years ago and about how the kids were now half grown. Not mine, of course, as I still have no kids. Anyway she wanted to meet with me to apologize or somethin'. She ain't gonna ever be able to fix what she broke, but I will let her try. I suspect she is in some 12 step program. I seem to recall that makin' amends to all the people you damaged is part of the plan, so I suspect that is the purpose of the contact. When I told my secretary who it was I had been talkin' to, she said maybe my ex had wanted to get back together with me. I quickly informed her that such was not even a possibility. If you noticed, I did not even mention this person's name, as they have been solely referred to by me for almost a decade solely by the designation of CHB. The C stands for Cold and the H stands for Hearted. I will let you figure out what the B means.

The skeletons in your closet are rattling today! ;)
Better keep your navel tucked in and warm...

Boy do I know how you feel. I'm layered in clothing and thermals and I'm still shivering. It's not that the house is cold, it's the odd draft that seems to slice right through even the thickest fabric on me and conspire to freeze my otherwise nice and toasty skin. It's like running an ice cube on my neck!

I think I'm going to have my 10th cup of cocoa and curl up under all the blankets now...brrrr!
