Meanderings.. Unrelated Subjects And Thoughts..

I am a lost boy.. not a vampire or a missing person, just like a car not in gear- that's all.. It's snowing again, and I really have had quite enough of it- everyone here abouts is saying "No Mas!"(only in English, peppered with colorful metaphors!). Business is in a bog- not going up, but slowly going down...We know this crappy weather cannot go on for much longer- but criminy! People are cranky, as our next holiday is Memorial Day- over 2 months+ away!
Tonight, we had a classic Cheeseburger, with pickles, lettuce, mayo, catsup, and mustard. We have been boring and bored all week! "The longer things stay the same, the sooner they change"...
The Canadian singer Anne Murray once sang a song- "A Little Good News Today".. Who remembers it, and who has a little good news they could share with us today? I'd love to hear some..

I just saved a bunch of money by switching my car insurance to Gie....nevermind.

Seasons come and seasons go, in weather and in life. Your dulldrums shall pass my friend.

Michelle Ann said...

Yes, spring flirted with us briefly and allowed us a small taste of warmer weather. However, it was ripped from us and we are now back to the wind and the cold. URGH!

Annie said...

Good news is in your heart (you can swat me now) and in your kitchen. I can only imagine that your classic cheeseburger was something marvelous.

new york city is nice and not nice on any given bhudist outlook is simple...if it is your hill then climb it and be happy that you have a hill....

Dana said...

I got up out of bed on my own and was able to walk downstairs to make coffee! I'd say that is always good news and always a great way to start the day!

Are you competing with DoggyBloggy on the Cheeseburgers? I like mine rare, and you are much closer than New York!

Casdok said...

My son walked round some puddles 2 days in a row!!! :) :)

Odat said...

I have good news!!!!! Come on over and celebrate with me! hehe.
I'm sorry for your dulldrums...but "this too shall pass" and having a cheeseburger with it makes it go quicker! We're supposed to have snow north of here today too!! I know the feeling ..

In_spired said...

Good News! You know who Anne Murray is! She is one of my favorites!

This reminded me of the theme song in Annie..."Tomorrow".

"When I'm stuck in a day that's gray, and lonely, I just stick out my chin and grin, and say... Oh!

The sun'll come out
tomorrow so ya gotta hang on
'Til tomorrow...Come what may!
Tomorrow, Tomorrow!
I love ya Tomorrow!
You're always a day away!"

In reflection, your post has reminded me to forget my stiff joints and aching back today, and quit whining and complaining. Tomorrow, it will be better.

Thanks Buff, and have a great day!!

Jeff- I sorta asked for that one.. thanks!
michelle- Most everyone around here agrees- this was the suckiest winter in 20 yrs.!
annie- I'll owe you the swat on your next birthday! The cheeseburger helped- a little..
DogB- How come my hill didn't come with mineral rights?
dana- Much closer... said the spider to the cheeseburger eatin' fly....
casdok- Someone finally took me seriously! That is good news!
odat- You know, you've been rubbing it into me that you're done with the working world now
for about two weeks... Just kiddin'- You know it's just envy on my part!

buffalodickdy said...

in_spired- Who doesn't love "Annie" the musical? That's just the song I needed to hear yesterday!

pinknest said...

snow?! ack. you'll get out of the doldrums soon enough. i'm sure that cheeseburger helped!

Bina said...

Hmm, good news. Well, I brought my vacuum cleaner and stuff to work today. I have already swept and mopped our kitchen and bathroom (it hasn't been done since we moved in here in January. GROSS). And it smells good in here!

Sorry, that's all I got.

Bina said...

Ha! I LOVE Jeff b's comment. My brother does that to me all the time. He calls me from El Paso, and when I least expect it, he'll say,"Guess What!" and then ya, he saved a bunch of money. blah blah blah.

Anndi said...

Um... let's see.

Good news...

Well, you have less snow than I do (wait, how is that good?)

I think my fever broke... (oops, that means no more half nekkidness though... or does it?)

and um.. we really do appreciate you dear. SMOOCH

Does that help?

Leighann said...

Good news.... I'm going to beat Jeff about the head for that Gieco bullcrap!


buffalodickdy said...

pink- the cheeseburger did help a little..
bina- If cleaning makes you happy, please stop by!
anndi- Yes, from you- it does..
leighann- If you do that, I will owe you one!

Gnightgirl said...

My son shipped his personal stuff home 3 days ago: they are preparing to finish their tour in Iraq, and will be home in 5 weeks. Whoop!

buffalodickdy said...

gnightgirl- tell him to keep his head and ass down until then! Great news! Thanks!

Finn said...

I'm alive, I'm healthy, it's Friday and I'll be off work and mom duty for the next week.

Akelamalu said...

Good news - I won £95 this week at Bingo!

It's just the winter blues you've got Buff, once the snow has gone and the sun comes out you'll be as right as rain! xx

Tanya Kristine said...

good news? IT'S FRIDAY!!!!

Snow's Good News.

I stood my ground with the idiot at work. He hasn't been an idiot since.

I did NOT lose my keys (yet) today. (long, funny story to follow sometime this weekend).

I got paid today and am having a mom and snicker's night out while woobie stays overnight at his cousin's.

They served us pizza at work for lunch today for a good first quarter.

I think I qualify for the IRS tax refund even though I haven't made enough money to file taxes.

Someone made a snafu at my job and I was able to calm the customer down, make him laugh, and then fix it.

Okay, your turn. :)


Jeff B said...

I'm starting to feel like family now. I'm getting the crap kicked out of me at my blog and over here too. Oooh am I feeling the love this week.


Real Live Lesbian said...

Come visit me in TN! It's going to be almost 70 this weekend! I'll make ice cream and we'll sit outside in the sun!

buffalodickdy said...

finn- Off work sounds great right now!
Ake- Congrats on the money win!
Tanya- It does make things better, doesn't it?
jeff- You're welcome anytime over her- the abuse is free...
snowniece- Sounds like you're doing great, and having some fun too!
R.L.L.- Must be good to be back where there's oxygen in the air!

Mona said...

Good News. My Husband's medical report showed negative presence & they are stopping treatment.

Yaaay! No more giving injections! I had to administer more than a hundred each night & the best part is that he is cured!!

buffalodickdy said...

mona- That's the best news of all! I am truly glad for you and your family- may your future be bright!
