Random Notes......Again

Tonight my five-year-old daughter has another dance recital. This means that this evening I will be investing a few hours watching little children tripping over themselves in tights to the beat of some catchy tune that will imbed itself into my head for the next few days. I went to the practice Monday night and have caught myself singing “I’m a pineapple princess” several times since. I will also have a hard time restraining myself from joining in on the Bavarian number, since the last time I heard it I was in a beer tent in Stuttgart Germany and I was forced to sing along with lyrics that I’m sure would surpass the vulgarity threshold of a children’s show though they would be sung in a language that no one there, including myself, actually speaks. (Actually, if there were any real Germans in attendance, I doubt they would be able to figure out what I was saying since I mumble the lyrics like I do with our national anthem or any other tune that I don’t really know all of the words to).

Another highlight of this event is having my mother-in-law driving up to stay with us for a couple of days. Don’t get me wrong, my mother-in-law rocks but she brings her dog, a miniature schnauzer with an incessant bark and a prolific inability to control his bladder. As God is my witness, I swear that if that little rat pisses on my new carpet, he’s going for a ride on the rinse cycle in my washing machine with a plugged in toaster as a traveling companion. As the forecasters are calling for yet another major snowstorm to hit the area this afternoon, I have a feeling this little cretin is going to be there longer than I can handle.

Tomorrow however, should be the bomb. I have my second holiday office party which promises to be unbridled hedonism at its best. Then, on Friday morning, I have my annual performance appraisal. Luckily, this one will be conducted by phone so my boss will have no idea that I will probably still be quite drunk.
