Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus - I mean Cam

So last Tuesday I ventured out to Arlington to meet up with Clem for a "I don't have to work tomorrow" happy hour even though I did have to work the next day - well at least until noon. It was great to see Clem as the last time I saw her was several months ago - I remembered that it had been since my wedding but I've forgotten again - oh wait- it just came back to me - it was at Popodop's (remember her? she never blogs anymore) surprise birthday part. Clem was sneaky and got me and Mr. K to come out by holding happy hour at one of Mr. K's favorite restaurants - Rhodeside grill - he can't get enough of their buffalo chicken tenders and will jump at any chance to go there since it used to be our default restaurant to go to until we moved to the burbs. Yes, I know that Arlington is technically the burbs but it's got nothing on Fairfax. Anywho, I digress. So, Mr. K and I head to Rhodeside for happy hour and Clem promised me that there would be a special attraction at this happy hour. One I had been looking forward to seeing for quite some time now. Which brings us to the title of this post - I finally got to meet Cam. For those of you who have met him several times, you'll have to excuse my excitement as this was the first time I met him. I found him to be a very nice looking man and he and Mr. K had plenty to talk about with their military backgrounds. It was hard at times to tear him away from the Florida basketball game but I won't hold that against him. It'll be hard to tear me away from the Packers/Cowboys game on Thursday which I am really really excited and a tiny bit nervous for. So, I got to meet the illusive Cam and was most impressed when he asked Miss Clem what she had eaten that day. Apparently he caught on rather quickly that our friend Clem likes to drink on an empty stomach - something Popodop does too. So, with both of us giving her a little bit of shit for that, she finally relented and ordered french fries. Anyway, I'm talking about all sorts of stuff here but the big deal is that I got to meet Cam and I found him to be completely normal and a nice guy. I was pretty impressed over all.

All of that aside, Thanksgiving has come and gone and I really need to get moving on my Christmas shopping. I have bought one gift so far and have no idea what else to get for anybody. Any ideas??? I have to buy for my mom, Mr. K's younger sister and her husband and Mr. K's parents. Other than that, I don't have a lot to say. I have no motivation to work so I am trying to kill as much time as possible right now before I can leave in 30 minutes. But, since I've run out of things to say, and don't want to bore you with my whining about going home and working out and how I really don't want to, I shall call it a day and play some spider solitaire. Adios!
