Whew! I'm whipped (whupped if you're from the south like me :) and it ass because of all the stuff I have to complete before I go on vacation. Basically, tomorrow is the last day I work until Jan 3. :) Happy!

I'm finally taking a vacation! The queen and I are taking to two princesses to Disney Land in Southern California, though the 2 princesses do not know this yet. It's their big Christmas gift from our royal selves. Anyway, if you know us and see the princesses, please keep the secret! :) We have all the arrangements handled and are renting a royal carriage to transport us all overland through the glittering city of Las Vegas (I've never been there by the way) and on to Southern California. There, we'll visit with the royal Mouse and all his associates for the better part of a week. We'll also visit a couple of friends from our previous lives in VA while we're there. We might also visit a couple of friends in Las Vegas on the way back, though that's still unplanned. It won't be that much rest and relaxation, but it'll be a vacation from the norm.

I just hope the princesses appreciate the effort the queen and I had to go through to accomplish this task. I need to go and help one of the princesses retrieve a game from her closet. Talk to you all later! :)

Ho, Ho, Oh, No!

We delivered Christmas cookies this evening. Those of you who know me know that if I deliver something, I like to deliver it and be on my way. Those of you who know the queen, know that she can't possibly deliver something without a lot of jabewasa. She asked me to go and I knew that I should have said no, but I said yes in the hopes that we'd deliver seven packages and then come home within the hour.

Yeah, whatever!

The first stop, she went into the house and I knew it was all going to be downhill from there. When she finally came out, my mood had already turned south for the winter and it didn't help that our princesses were cranky. We then had a few houses go by pretty quickly and then we got bogged down when the princesses wanted to get out of the royal carriage. After finally getting them back in the carriage, we proceeded to go to another neighbor's home and, like light in a black hole, we were all pulled in.

The lady was quite amusing and was from the South, so I felt comfortable talking to her, but it resulted in us remaining out for far too long. We finally got the princesses to bed, an hour late, and I'm sure they'll be cranky tomorrow. Especially since we all got flu shots today.

I guess it's the queen's problem tomorrow. :) Mostly anyway. I'll have to deal with it after work.

The queen's issue with blogger has still not been resolved. They announced that the remaining features had been put into place, but her blog is still F.U.B.A.R.! I guess it's just S.N.A.F.U. over at Google's HQ. I can't believe they put something like this in place without a way to back out of it if the process failed in mid-stream.

Anyway, I'm gonna either WoW or play Texas Hold 'em now. Later!

Continuing Saga...

The Queen's Blog is now in Limbo. Google and Blogger seem to have really mucked up the process and now she has no control of her own blog. It sucks because she's taking it pretty hard. If you're wondering why she hasn't posted anything yet, that would be why.

They updated Blogger / Blogspot and are in the process of converting to Blogger Beta. It seems fine to me, but is it possible to make the conversion process any more painful? You practically have the Queen in tears!

Anyway, I hope this new one is worth all the trouble. So far so good (aside from a little problem converting, but it's been resolved).

Nothing much happening here these days, but we'll see what happens as the month progresses. :)

That's all for now! This post was brought to you by the letters B, E, T, A, and the number 1.

Quiet Time...

I'm forced to do less talking than I normally do. I have an ailment (I think it's a sinus infection) and it's causing drainage and a sore throat. That leads to coughing and inflamed vocal cords, which results in less than optimal conditions for oral communication. I sound very bad, though better today than I did on Friday night, Saturday, or Sunday. At any rate, I need to reduce the amount of talking I do in order to make the cords feel better so I can talk. It's quite annoying. :)

I'm sure the Queen isn't very happy about it as she complains that I'm not vocal enough as it is. I guess this'll show her that it could be worse. :)

Anyway, not much happened over the past week aside from helping the Admiral rebuild her computer last night. Please let us all know if it's working correctly, Bob! :)

I'm not gonna say that much more. Instead, I'm gonna go and take a short nap or play Uno w/ the queen and the big princess. :)
