Catching up on the backlog

Well yesterday was the first day since my return from Mexico that did not involve a cough, sneeze, sniffle, mentho-lyptus lozenge, or tissue... so I am cutting back to just one carton of orange juice a day and will return to eating chicken soup with a spoon, instead of a funnel.

It also means that I should start blogging again, so since I'm a little rusty with the whole noun-verb-sentence-paragraph structure, I thought I would start off by catching up on some of belated posts that have been sitting atop my 'Past Due' blog pile. I was tagged by Ladylongfellow a couple of weeks ago, so pull up to your monitors and read on...

"She can bring home the bacon...fry it up in a pan. And never ever ever let you forget you're a man. 'Cuz she's a wooooman...Enjolie"

2.) As a kid, you played a board game over and over. And you cheated you little bastard! What was the game?
Risk. "A game of total world domination played by two guys who can barely run their own lives"--Jerry Seinfeld

3.) What is the name of the song that you have been singing the incorrect words all these years? What were you singing? What should you have been singing?
"Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann. I was singing "Blinded by the light, wrapped up like a Dooshun, other roller in the night" (don't ask me what the hell a 'Dooshun' What I should have been singing is "Blinded by the light, revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night"

4.) What is the most embarrassing childhood story that your parents drag out just to fuck with you for their own private amusement?
I would always get really wound up on Christmas Eve, anticipating all of the toys the next morning, but since Santa doesn't stop by until all of the kids are nestled in bed dreaming of sugarplums, etc...I would get even more wound up over the fact that I couldn't fall asleep and would ruin Christmas for my younger brothers and

The trip to Mexico City was fantastic. It was great to spend time with my brother and each day was filled with amazing sights and wonderful hospitality. I had planned to write a detailed post about the whole trip when I got back, but I must have caught something on the return flight, because for the past week I've been trying to get over a pretty bad head cold that just won't seem to go away.

I'm feeling pretty better now, but for a short time I feel like my main focus should be on my job search. I'll still be checking in on everyone's blog until things get settled again. See you soon.
