New n old-fangled contrap-
tions are keeping me wondering which end plugs into what n which end is up... wherever North went...
I died 50 times in rapid succession when at long last I finally got the new old-fashioned Atari to work on my tv. It came pre-loaded with about 40 games like Asteroids, Space Invaders, n Centipede. I'd forgotten how easy it is to lose those old, simple graphic games. Plus I'm not used to the joystick thing n had always used buttons on a controller in the old days. Then there's all the other games I'd never tried before to totally mess up.
Winter finally made a re-appearance n it's back to double socks n Long-Johns again. I'm making short work of the chocolate kisses, Hugs, n Andes mints. Leftovers have been whittled down, but I can't get to grocery shop this week either when my only free day is a holiday.
After skipping so much sleep to get holiday stuff done, I'll probably sit most of today. Was just going to post before getting up today, but magically my phone line went dead, so it will wait anyway...
I had to work New Year's Eve this year, but after work I had an eggnog with nutmeg. That's a treat but I've noticed the main ingredient is something I try to not eat anymore- High Fructose Corn Syrup. So I've only had a little bit, n may throw the rest out. I also have been making my own cranberry sauce in favor of the canned Jellied type since I noticed that ingredient in there. It's crazy how many products they sneak that into, including bread. Even into products made where I work. I try to opt for natural, raw sugar which costs more, but is healthier. That's not a resolution, just what I've been doing already.
