To Do List...

Christmas. Done. It came and went faster then ever this year. And for some reason it seemed to take more out of not just me, but all of us. Might have been the big snow we had a few days before.

Clean up from Blizzard #3 of 2006. Check. Wow. I'm officially getting sick of snow. Snow blower or not, three feet of snow is a pain in the butt to deal with.

Blizzard #4 (due in tomorrow afternoon some time). On schedule. Apparently, this is how it used to be around these parts... before El Nino blew in some time ago. This is the most snow we've had since we've lived here, and it's cold to boot. This is winter! Ironically enough, we hit a record high last year at this time of 64 degrees. We haven't seen anything close to that in many months.

New Year's Eve party and resolution. Check and check. That is, if we don't get snowed in again. The one last week had us socked in for 2 days. My resolution: to have a finished, submittable draft of my "never ending novel" done by this time next year. I've been working on this thing for what seems like several years now, and it's time to "git-r-done" or call it quits. Since I'm a writer not a quitter (apologies to McCartney and Jackson)... well, I've got no choice but to bang this thing out. Plus, I did go and promise my wife that house on the beach. ;)

I have a penchant for a few things (aside from my wife that is). Beer you already know about (and I got a lot of nifty beer "stuff" for Christmas which I'll get to later). Two other things are superheroes - ya, the cape wearing spandex type - and video games. I am an Associate PC Editor for AOL GameDaily after all, so I better like games. I'm lucky enough to be able to combine those two things. My World of Warcraft is the City of Heroes and City of Villains games. I've written several articles about both for AOL GameDaily as well as Beckett's Massive Online Gamer Magazine. I love the new NBC show Heroes. If you haven't been swept up in the phenom yet, there's a marathon on January 1st - be sure to catch it! Plus, I'm a sucker for the spate of superhero movies (my fave up to this point being Batman Returns).

Well... we got several more movies coming down the pipe including Nicholas Cage as Ghost Rider, and the new Fantastic Four movie. The trailer for Rise of the Silver Surfer was just released! Catch it here!
