passing the time

Greetings, and happy hump day friends!

I hope your Christmas prep week is going well. 
Have any fun stories to share? 
I drove by the mall after work yesterday, and sure enough, all the Christmas crazies were out in full force. Mr. B and I have a tradition of meandering through the mall the day before Christmas to do a little people watching. I swear if I was a comedian, this is where I would go for inspiration! People are just plain nutty this time of year. 
Anywho, the Denver area is supposed to get 5 to 8 inches of snow tonight, which is terribly inconvenient since we are headed back to Kansas tomorrow. Hmmm…this could get interesting. Our flight isn’t until 8pm, but I have a feeling we might not make it there until Friday morning. I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything works out! 
Since things are crazy around here, I thought I would share this article that Mr. B found last night listing “40 Things That Will Make You Feel Old”. As another year comes to an end, I realize that time is zooming by at the speed of the light, and that this article further points to my aging. 
However, instead of dwelling on how this list could make me feel old, I found it to be rather humorous as in, “I can’t believe I watched that”, or “Damn, I look way better than they do!”  Also, I thought it would be more fun to do a top 10 list. 
Alright, here it goes.
