Well just spent my shift today up in East Windsor covering the town for them while they were all at the funeral for Windsor Locks' Fire Chief. We didn't do a darn thing all day... very boring.

Happy New Year! Well I had to buy a new laptop since my old one pretty much died... hopefully I can get someone to recover some of my files off the hard drive. This new 'puter works really well, it uses Windows XP. I never realized how lousy Windows ME was...

I'm into the second week of vacation from my Paramedic class... and I haven't done a darn thing that's useful in the whole time... I've pretty much been sitting around uselessly. Oh well.. It feels good anyway.

For New Years I took my nephew Jesse and his girlfriend Yonina to Hartford's First Night celebration. It was pretty fun, but I think we should've gone earlier then the ~8pm we did arrive for. There was a lot of stuff that went on that afternoon that we missed out on. The stuff we did see was cool enough though. I was dissapointed that so many of the downtown merchants weren't open. I mean you've got all these out-of-towners in the city! The shops that were open were doing a very brisk business... mostly restaurants- as to why Dunkin Donuts was open but Starbucks was closed I wouldn't know. The fireworks at the end of the night were great.

On Christmas Eve I went to the Matzo Ball, a dance for Jewish singles... I met a few young ladies I'm interested in and who seem interested in me... we'll see how things develop...

I actually got to take an ambulance transfer to New York for the first time on Monday. We took a lady who had had a stroke while visiting from Poland to JFK to take a plane home. I was dissapointed though, because the transfer was scheduled late enough in the day that we couldn't stop and get a bit of kosher food while we were down there! Oh well...
