Quote of the day

Me, responding to Becky harassing me to stop blogging and work on our budget: “I’m on break. I don’t think you should be able to nag me.”

Becky: “No, that doesn’t follow. You never get a break from being my husband.”


On a related note, it occurred to me last night that this is the last time I’ll ever have a “winter break.” I’ve been a student for 20 of the past 21 years, but this time next year, I’ll be in the working world — which, because I’m not going into teaching, means I’ll get a couple of days off, not several weeks off, for the holidays. Dammit.

P.S. The clock just struck 2:00 PM here in Arizona, which means it’s time to say: Happy New Year, Iraq!

    Sounds like Brendan failed his Saving Throw vs. Reality. :-p

    Wait a second. So you responded to her comment that you should stop blogging by blogging about it? Sweet!
