Thanks to the storm on Monday morning, work is operating on backup emergency generator, powered by diesel.
Home never lost power. For which I am grateful, considering places on the Iowa side have.

My review (6 month) is going to be next week. Confession: I HATE them. Nothing against my boss or anything. But I hate annual reviews. They freak me out and make me more nervous than I likely ought to be.

Adam Burish, Jacob Dowell, and Jack Skille were all at the press conference yesterday at Wrigley Field in Chicago, announcing the Winter Classic there on New Year's Day 2009 - Detroit Red Wings vs. Chicago Blackhawks.

And dammit if Skille still isn't kinda hot. (Even if he is almost 14 years younger than me.)
