Colds and Sniffling and The Economy

Well, all day yesterday I was sucking on zinc tablets because Keith's cold decided to infect me, too. It's kind of inevitable to catch a cold from someone that lives in the same tiny house as you and sleeps in the same bed, so...the only good thing is that he says I don't have to go to the company Christmas party on Saturday if I'm not feeling good. I'm sure I'll be completely recovered by then, though, because that's just how things go with me. I remember as a kid trying to make my cough sound worse than it was so I could stay home from school but it never worked.

We've been watching the news about the hundreds of thousands of people that will lose their unemployment benefits just in time for Christmas if Congress doesn't do something like real soon. Ho, ho, ho and Merry Christmas! We also might be letting tax cuts expire so you'll all be paying higher taxes next year, too! Happy New Year!

Oh, and if you are on Medicare, better go to the doctor now because we'll be cutting your benefits and if you were thinking about retiring and collecting your social security any time soon, check that off your list because we're going to make you work until you die so that we don't have to pay you anything.

Hey, Congress people, how about taking a pay cut and helping the old economy out that way? No? I didn't think so. And all of you who work for the government and won't be getting a pay raise next year? Quit your whining about it, most of the people in the private sector haven't seen pay raises in a long long time. If they still have a job, that is.

Last night we had pork chops and scrambled eggs for dinner. I'm getting real uninspired trying to think of what to fix and we've had salad twice this week already and I'm getting really tired of cottage cheese and turkey burgers for breakfast and lunch. What I really wanted for dinner was pizza.

I would gladly buy you a pizza if we could get together.

I watched a 60 minutes show about the economy, about how we are supposedly out of the recession but having a slow recovery. It was pretty interesting.
