Christmas in April

This will only be a short update since we have a guest blogger this week (who is doing a wonderful job, btw--I'm ROFLOL!).

Christmas has arrived early this year. I am the proud recipient of the following gifts (which materialized on different days since Monday):

1) My very first internet stalker!
On Monday, someone stopped by my office to inform me that they had become my internet stalker. I'm not pointing any fingers. "Someone" may refer to anybody, including but not limited to Colonel Panic, who had gone on the Long Ridge hiking trail this past weekend. For identification purposes, I have placed this thermostat outside of my stalker's door.

2) My very first African violet!
Green Thumbs McGillicutty showed up in my office on Monday bearing the gift of an African violet that she could not fit on her windowsill. Here she is. I'm naming her "Viola." I know! Creativity is one of my strong suits.

3) My very first pair of trail shoes!
So, Mr. Nonny Nu did not buy us hiking boots after all. He got us TRAIL SHOES! They are really cool. I like mine. They are greenish/grayish New Balance shoes. For those of you who play Halo, it's like the shade of green of Master Chief's suit. PERFECT SIZE. He also got me these really cute Puma anklets to go with. I'll show you guys this weekend when I go hiking. Mr. Nonny Nu got himself a pair of *drum roll please* SKETCHERS trail shoes! They're pretty snazzy, but mine are way better.

But, wait! I'm not the only one who is experiencing Christmas early. Look what came in the mail today.

Oh, big deal. I got a wireless mouse / keyboard several months ago for work. Its wonderful and cheap from Walmart.
Are you really gonna look like that guy during your hike. That's ridiculous. No one can function under all those crap. Trust me, I've don stuff like that. You move like molassess.

Bluetooth keyboard, eh? Whatever might that be for?

Of course, not. The shoes are of a similar color. I'm not going hiking as a Transformer.

My internet stalker just came by my office and said, "Only suckers pay retail."

Well, wearing the Halo outfit might make the mountain bikers get out of your way for a change

Funny you should say that. Stillman and I almost got run over by two mountain bikers at Long Ridge. Did you run into the same problem, Colonel Panic?

Yup... out of nowhere maniacal bikers would appear (often sporting fleece emblazoned with Google or Yahoo! or some such other organization where the worker bees are generally more fit and outdoorsy than those in my hive)

As a Bi-sporter, you all are wrong. As a general rule, slow people keep to the right. The faster people have right-of-way. So, all you novice hiker, play the the rule and let the bikers go first. Otherwise, be prepared to EAT DIRT!
