New Thoughts

-The old man known as 2008 has breathed his last breath and the little baby 2009 has been born. Little 2009 is in diapers, yet it is projected to be a monster. We shall see.

-Pet Peeve: It’s “Happy New Year” or “Happy New Year’s Day”, not “Happy New Years”. There is only one New Year at a time.

-The Miami Heat beat the Cleveland Cavs to make it two wins over the two best teams in each conference (Lakers were the other) over the last couple of weeks. They have already surpassed last year’s win total. That’s two Miami sports franchises turning it around from dismal records last season.

-With my work day starting as early as it does, I knew I had to go to sleep early. I tried, but every time I started to drift to sleep, someone shot a fire cracker and Max barked.

-Last night was going to be my first night in my memory in which I missed seeing in the New Year. Due to my little buddy Max, I ended up going to sleep at 12:30 AM. I did get to kiss Marcela at midnight, though.

-I finally beat Marcela in bowling on the Wii. She nearly came back to beat me, but she came up 5 pins short after I built a huge lead.

-Marcela stayed up until about 11:30 cooking her “chilis rellenos”. I ate the first one, it was most excellent!

-My sis-in-law is going camping this weekend. So I broke out my tent and some camping gear. It’s been about 3 years since I used it. While doing an inventory of the tent parts, Vivi discovered a gecko egg with a baby gecko inside. By “discovered” I mean she accidentally crushed it. NASTY!

-Go Dolphins! I am still in shock that they have made the playoffs and won 11 games.

-Marcela’s new camera I gave her for Christmas has been great. Yesterday we went to the Everglades and she took some wonderful pictures. I will be sure to load them on flckr and post the link. In the mean time, check out my twitter account to see some of the pics I have uploaded.

    Great pics. Poor Max he was scared he is just a puppy.

  4. Nice pictures ! I guess that Twitter actually does have a useful purpose after all. Post more pics !

    Your pics have me wanting to go and do some sightseeing of my own of animals and wildlife. In 2008 I visited Monkey Jungle (again), so I think that I will visit Miami Metro Zoo sometime within the next couple of months or so (during the cooler months obviously).

    Happy New Year Phil, Marcela, & Max !
