2nd post for this Friday

I know I already posted for Friday but I woke up to something really strange happening outside my window this morning. It was raining. This is huge because it has only rained 2 or 3 times in the last 6 or 8 months. The roads are getting washed clean and the bad drivers are learning how to drive all over again. But I will take a rainy day every couple month just to make me appreciate the beautiful sunny days we tend to take for granted here in Southern California. Mrs. Twisted and I were commenting last night when we walked to the car last night and she had on flip flops and neither of us had a jacket. The last weekend in November and most of the country is seeing weather and have broken out the winter clothes. For us it's life as usual.

Another fun thing I saw this morning. I checked my site meter and looked at the referrals because I'm curious where or what brought my readers to this blog and found that I'm #99 on Knitting Friends Daily To Blog watch. http://knittingfriends.com/communityMy site is #99 out of 211,986 sites being tracked. No idea how I got on their radar but I thought it was fun. The social rank and increase in traffic has something to do with it. I just think it's fun. I look on the referral list and found that my blog is translated in Spanish and German on two different sites. Well thank you to all who read this even if you just skim through and are not compelled to leave a comment. And for those of you who take the time to comment, You really make my day.

Tonight is the Company Christmas party. Semi formal and it should be a fun evening. Music and dancing and a chance for Mrs. Twisted to put faces to all the people I describe in my work stories. It's a small company and they still enjoy the small company type parties. Mr. Twisted is going to wear his dark suit and the Mrs will wear a very pretty two piece set that we bought the last time we were in Chicago. We found a wonderful boutique in the suburbs and had dinner at the top of the John Hancock building as sunset the Friday night before we left. Watching the city lights come to life as the sun faded away. What a wonderful memory.

    An office Christmas party - oooh.
    I have found memories of office Christmas parties.

    In London, England - at the Council For National Academic Awards. (I've never worked long enough in an office anywhere else.) Those parties always seemed to be the beginning of a season of celebration.

    Thank you for reminding me of it - and I hope you enjoyed yours.
