The girls both stayed over at friends' houses, so Deb and I stepped out. First we went to Buffalo Wild Wings, where Deb got the blazin' hot wings and proved that she is tougher than me. She didn't even flinch. I had one of hers and cried like a small baby. I had a couple of delicious Guinness beers. Then we went and saw Syriana which was okay, but confusing. I made a movie review page, which you can use as the definitive guide to all things cinematic. Then we went to BITE, where we had expensive steaks and listened to a man play a piano. Later, we went to the River City Saloon to see some friends of ours play in their band, "Trilogy". They were really good. There were several drunk rednecks in attendance, and hilarity ensued as they tried to dance. One gentleman told bawdy jokes to my wife and her friend. Later he played tambourine (not with the music) while the band played a Journey song. He had a fake ice-cube that had a light in it. It made his drink look like he got it at the bar on STNG. Then we came home. It snowed a few inches. This morning I fixed a wireless network in like, five minutes. The sun is out now. Needless to say, I have gas.
--later that evening . . . Ladies and Gentlemen, I am pleased to announce that I have achieved the Yellow Star for feedback on Ebay. You may send congratulatory letters to my email address. I want to thank my parents, my wife and children for their support. I'd like to thank my teachers at McPherson High School and Tidewater Community College for the encouragement and training I needed to get to his point in my ebay buying career. sniff. i told myself I wouldn't cry. thank you! thank you!

January 1, 2006 Happy New Year! Dick Clark was looking a little rough this year. Deb was supposed to work, but they messed up the schedule, and she was able to come home and spend New Years at the house. We sat up, had a little bubbly, went outside and made noise, and came back in. It's a good thing 2005 is over, because it was one natural disaster after another. Things went good for us this year, we sold the house in VA and all that, business was good, I got a story published, but the rest of the world is falling apart at the seams. Hurricanes, Tsunamis, scandals, fires, floods, earthquakes, droughts, war bla bla bla. Either God is really pissed off, or it's global warming.
The thing that scares me is Dick Clark. I've always said that when Dick Clark begins to age, it is a sign of the Apocalypse. I only hope I'm wrong.
My New Year resolution:

Some things never change. The Lions lost (yet again) and I'm glad their season is over.
