it's been a while

i can't believe it's december.
it's still 80 degrees during the day.
my neighbors across the street have decorated the shit
out of their yard - she said her electric bill last december
was 650 dollars! insane.
i guess people just go nuts to (over)compensate for the fact that
1. there's no snow and 2. when you go to get your christmas tree,
you sweat like a wildebeast getting it onto the roof of your car!

thanksgiving was sucky without my family.
i went to my cousin Mark's wedding the day after.
it was on a yacht that cruised around (for a 3 hour tour!)
all the Keys - Siesta, Longboat, Bird, and Lido. The food
was OK, the music was terrible and the vows corny.

the good part of it being december is that i get to see
my children in one month...

i've been reading, so i'll mention a few books worth checking out.
all the Jack Reacher novels by Lee Child - and i've read 6 - are
good, easy reading. Spaceman Blues by Brian Francis Slattery was a
rollercoaster ride of a read. The God of Animals by Aryn Kyle was
well worth a look-see. there have been more, but i'm tired, so next time.

happy sunday, people.
