Covered with Cat Snot

I watched three hours of Criminal Minds on A&E last night (they almost always have them on Friday nights), then started reading the paper while watching the news. I got to bed to read at 2am and finished at 4:30am. I woke up at 11am with amazing back pain (now I have a lot of pain in my left side/hip -- almost fall when I walk) and took more narcotics then turned off the alarm and woke up at 3pm. I got to take two more at 7pm.

Poor Spirit is sneezing long ribbons of snot all over. I'm glad she isn't as upset about me cleaning her face as before and I'm glad most of my furniture is cleanable.

I went through next week's TV Week and only had three shows to mark -- Sunday has a Masterpiece Contemporary, Monday has the part 2, last of winter season The Closer, and Wednesday has an hour of Storage Wars. The Criminal Minds are most of Friday on A&E, too.

I made the grocery list for Monday, although the weather has changed and it looks like I may have to pay for the rental car myself on Tuesday, and only if I get people here on Monday to dig me out. Then, if the van isn't ready, I won't get groceries, not that I'll die.

Santa Claus has waterskiied at National Harbor (on the Potomac) for 25 years with reindeer, the Grinch, elves, etc. but this is his last year. He says he'll be under a palm tree next Christmas. A lot of people come to watch, so maybe a new Santa will turn up.
