Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Told you this was coming...

Good GOD, it was freaking cold in my apartment last night! We had our first significant storm of the season yesterday, and my oh-so-quaint windows that don't all shut properly couldn't keep all of the blustery winds out. And my oh-so-quaint radiator just doesn't cover the whole living room, because it's a pretty large room. Not that I'm complaining about that, mind you, but it's hard to heat. But it's a good excuse for the million candles I have around the room.

It was actually cold enough this morning for me to break out the Ill-Gotten Coat for the first time. Yay! Luckily, nothing bad happened to me while I was wearing it. Well, my bus was late, but that's becoming a regular occurrence these days. Grrrr. At least I was warm (and stylish, natch) while waiting.

I still have no voice. People keep asking me why I'm at work, since I sound like an old, sickly man who's smoked several packs a day for decades. Well, for one thing, I actually don't FEEL all that terrible. But more importantly, I have no more sick days left to use this year, and I'm not giving up any of my remaining vacation time unless I'm at death's doorstep. So I'm here, under a vow of silence. Aside from the blogging, of course..

I'm sure this is one of those things I should know...but I don't. What does natch mean???

nevermind...i just looked it up on wikipedia, natch.

1) a shortened form of the word 'naturally'

2) an interjection meaning 'naturally'
