Febuary made me shiver

Forget Ground Hog Day.  The first real harbinger of
Spring is the arrival of the new West Marine catalog.
In it I can find hundreds of pages filled with stuff that
I want and need, and never knew that before I got
this goddamn catalog in the mail.  It so drives home
how spartan and ill-equipped my boat really is.  It's
kind of depressing in a way, when you come to the
realization that there actually are people out there 
that have everything in that catalog that you want.

I usually get music for Valentine's Day.  The way I see it,
another five years or so and I will have a CD of every
album I've ever owned.  It'll be a good while after that
before something new comes down the pike and makes
CDs a thing of the past.  Trust me, I know what I'm doing.
Hey, I need another beer.  Are you done with that can opener yet? 


  1. Still waiting on our catalog. I think the mailman has secretly stashed it for his own use. A visit to the store usually nets us a couple of extra copies for the office, boat, and car. Addicted? Perhaps.

  2. I can't wait for FEBRUARY to be over!

  3. Catalog hit today. Opened it. No centerfold.....

  4. I wish they would make all catalogs with eco-friendly inks that would burn cleanly in the fireplace.
