I'm BACK and My Mayor Can Beat Up Your Mayor!

Despite rumors that I met my imminent fate with an unusually large icicle, I'M BACK!

Seriously though, If you've been wondering where I've been lately I was absent because of an untimely death in the family...my cable modem...which consequently made my wireless network haywire and led to a two-week-long computer catastrophe. But all is well with the world, and it's fixed. Which brings me to my next subject...how great it is to live in Minneapolis...

Not only are we the "Smartest", and "Techiest" city...but our own mayor R.T. Rybak was recently voted by Mens Fitness as the most fit mayor.

Minneapolis as a city, consequently ranked #13 out of 25 of the "Fittest" cities in the Nation, and interesting enough, our neighbor metropolis Chicago ranked #5 among the "Fattest"...oink oink...and Houston of course ranked "#1 in the less than flattering category.



In other news, I'm getting my new sofa today...isn't it KICK ASS?

That's it on the showroom floor. I'm ecstatic. To be perfectly honest with you, I was really trying to shy away from the whole "black leather" bit for fear I'd be categorized in some lame tasteless male bachelor group...you know the group that centers around puffy black leather furniture and black laquer...yeah, that group. But I was hooked the minute I set eyes on this sofa, I KNEW it was the one for me. It's distinguished button tufted back and arms...makes is look very vintage and old school which is definately my style. So, in preperation fo the arrivial, I've been painting and decor changing, now just to replace the chair I'm sitting in, some new curtains, and I'll be set...A new year, some new furniture...yay!

What are you doing that's "new" in the New Year?
