I have a confession. I thought, stupidly, that I didn't have enough on my plate, what with four kids, a husband, two cats, a dog, 15 hours at UNM plus a TA gig in another 3 hour course...so I offered to watch my friend's dogs while she is out of town. One is a quiet, 7 year old, small white dog, the other is an 8 week old husky/chow mix (freaking adorable) with tiny tanks, a taste for socks, and separation anxiety. So I have patches of piddle everywhere, wet, holey socks, and am operating on nearly no sleep from last night's 9 hour one note symphony, "YIKE! YIKE! YIKE! YIKE!" I haz a tired. We are trying a new trick tonight.
Newly elected Mayor Berry (I still can't say that aloud) is making some interesting staffing choices...as we all knew he would. Apparently, Mayor Berry has tapped ABQ Journal police reporter T.J.Wilham
for what promises to be the wildly entertaining job as spokesman (read damage control, blame avoidance and fire extinguishment) for Darren White. Let the hilarity ensue!
(Another confession, besides the fact that I love parenthetical asides and find them irresistible at times, is that I cannot think of Mayor Berry without thinking of Marion Berry, which leads me to think about crack and/or preserves.)
Dishonest spin alert! A new study from CQ Press
ranks the Albuquerque metro area as 8th in the nation in crime. However, if you actually read the article, it says Albuquerque proper is ranked at 72nd, and defines the metro area as Bernalillo, Sandoval, Valencia and Torrance counties. So, things are relatively quiet and safe here in the "Q" but watch your back in Los Lunas and Edgewood!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I am interested in what you have planned. Share with me what you are thankful for, what you are going to be dining on, or whom with. It is good to get the gratitude started early!
