Long time lurked ... Kind of shy...crazed by the mixed up posts! Have loved all of you, just shy to jump in! From Seattle
Welcome aboard katydid!
And on that note folks, I am outta here. Have a great evening all!
I just got off the phone with a vendor representative who is taking me to lunch tomorrow to discuss a problem. We are meeting at a restaurant halfway between our offices. I have never met this person, and she told that I would recognize her because she looks just like "stiffler's mom"...
Who is stiffler and who is his mom? I did not want to sound like an idiot just now.
rent the movie american pie. but as it's tomorrow... she'll be about 5'10", dark blonde hair, lips that dont need any more collagen, and a very curvaceous figure. :)
she also played the hair dresser in the legally blonde movies....
Never seen either of those movies, nor even heard of them...I will track down the actress on the IMDB site...
i'm trying to think of what else she's been in... but she's a very recognizable figure... the fact that the woman described herself as 'stiffler's mom' scares me a bit... be careful and carry mace. :) but if you do get a chance and want some mindless entertainment, rent the original american pie movie...it's actually quite entertaining. note: i DID say mindless. :)
She did sound a little like she was flirting. Well ok, a lot..But I just checked the internets and found the description on IMDB and you are DEFINITELY right about the collagen. Not my cup of chai personally.
Although, having perused the quotes from the film, I now get it...I used to work with someone about ten years ago who was always starting sentences with the phrase "This one time at band camp..." NOW i get it...;)
ah yes, band camp. you shall never look at band camp the same way again... :)
Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! It's 5 o'clock and I'm going home. Hasta la later!
Have you heard from Sir Biddle? I think he was on vacation this week but still wonder about his health.
I have not seen him this week, but it is only Tuesday...Hopefully he is ok. I worry about our regulars when one of us goes missing...
I concur. O.K. My Brother,Big Blue is raring to go and WD is getting antsy. I think she wants some fried gator meat so we are heading to Jacksonville.. Take care and tell the Mrs. Hi for me. Talk to ya in the a.m.
Trying something different this time...
Hubs has officially lost his mind. He has decided that going to preschool all day is too much for Thing 1 and that we need to just take him to the morning session only. Keep in mind that Thing 1 just started preschool yesterday and he only goes Mon, Wed and Fri. He also informed me yesterday, after we dropped Thing 1 off at preschool, that he felt like we had just abandoned him. I think preschool is going to be harder on Hubs than anyone else.
I used to be a teacher, and I always felt bad for the pre-K teachers because a lot of the parents would freak out over this very same thing. Oftentimes, the kids would be just fine, actually enjoying the socialization aspect of school and being around other kids, but it was the parents who had the issues with separation anxiety, thinking that their importance in their kid's mind is diminished.
I on the other hand, had middle school kids...By that time, parents were VERY happy to drop their kids off each morning...:)
It is a Dark day in the lounge today....We lost The King--Elvis on this date..sniff,sniff. I am also having second thoughts about sitting on the pot for the rest of the day–Bad JuJu !!
I will be dating myself when I say this, but I was 12 when that happened. Talk about one of those pivotal artists for his time.

The jester stole his thorny crown"

Just back from lunch having consumed my body weight of raw fish. Tried to get admin to wheel my chair down to the garage and wheel me back to the office but she wasn't doing. Need to add that to her job description under "other duties as assigned"...
Is the fork lift in the shop? Sorry Bro,I saw the opening :))
oooooo nice!!! jealous!!!! :) i LOVE me some raw fish!! altho, i did have a salmon fillet and brown rice last nite for dinner...that counts, right???
Happy Tuesday everyone!!! i posted on the dog blog (hah!) this morning and then had to work. grrrrr. :) how's everyone doing after the queen's party?? today has been slow in my brain but busy at work. that's ok... i'm getting my hair cut tonite so it's all good. BTW...i have been cutting out the diet coke as well as chaning my lunch habits... and my reward for that is the 30lb weight loss i've accrued since May 25th!! wahoo!!!! that red dress WILL be worn at Christmastime!!
oops.. forgot to remove @jerv... but you can read it too jerv!! :)
Proud of ya BBQ Queen,you will look smashing!
thanks!! i should have that whole posting of the pics online so i can post one! :)
Slow day today!?
I think everyone has a hangover from Queen's birthday party yesterday.
Yeah gotta be that. Slowest day I think I have ever seen. Well, calling it a day so y'all be good!
Take care Lil" Buddy and I'll talk to ya in the a.m. :)
Busy morning and now it's almost lunch time! Are we top to bottom or bottom to top today? The time stamps are confusing me too, I think they are EST? I think I'm having a blonde moment, or two, or three. Hope everyone is well.
I'm still trying to convince Kat to try it sideways..for scientific purposes only. How's things on the left coast?
It's vewy,vewy qwiet in here.....WAKE UP!!!!!!!
Good morning! I got in nice and early to get work done...and got dragged right in to a meeting. I have now finished two meetings and have one more to go, cuz Tuesdays are just cool like that.
Sounds way more "cruel" than "cool"...
Well,this looks like a real productive group for a Tuesday..Do we have any coffee left? WD is yawning,which in turn makes me yawn,etc. etc. I got a surprise phone call last night before I left out...it was from my brother Phil. He lives up in Yankeeland and somehow always knows when to call when I'm feeling a little down. He's been trying to teach me about patience and compassion,something we all lack at some time in our lives.He's the smartest man I know and some of you may know him too. He calls himself Truth. Anyway,GET TO WORK YOU SLACKERS,and that includes you too Queenie.
That Phil is a good man. Miss Saigon got a good catch. Hey dude, I bet you have a great story you can post on the dog thread about WD?
Let me check it out Lil' Buddy....You doing alright today?
Heck yeah great here. Boss is back in the office today so I gotta be productive. Imagine that?! Where are you headed?
Got the Florida run again..maybe I can roll over Casey Anthony while on my way there? :))
Haha! Make sure you back up and get her for a two fer. I hear that stupid twit is going to do jail time for passing bad stolen checks.
Jail for passing bad checks? To quote Carson " I did not know that"...Hopefully she gets shanked while in stir. Kind of like how OJ wound up in jail on a totally unrelated matter. As Jerry said, "If the thunder don't get you, ten the lightning will"
Off to lunch. Sayonara all!
Thanks man, I needed that. Like I said, I need the counsel of wise and learned men in my life (as all guys do), and that means you all. Part of our role as musketeers is to support and encourage each other, so many thanks!
Enough philosophizing. Almost time for lunch here, and am meeting someone for Japanese. Yum!
Wear your Gucci's while eating sushi..Hey I'm a poet!! HA!
I kinda like the reverse action to the postings. Keeps us on our toes. Re today's photo: looks like someone bruleed my coffee.
How's everyone doing?
Doing great here in VA. Wonderful weather. Keeping me busy at work, thought so no morning posts. Total bummer.
Know the feeling. South Jersey is nice and cool; 72 degrees, but spritzing. Beats heat indexes over 100 though. Speaking of a lot of work, I hear my boss coming around the corner. See you all tomorrow.
Top of the morning all! Slow morning in the Klatsch?
Yeah slow day alright. Hope folks are just busy and not turned off by the topsy turvy new posting. I see a Jeann stirring the stink pot on the dog story. Is that you or maybe Truth?
That's me. I am in a foul mood, so I thought I would share the wealth, so to speak.
LOL! Too funny dude. I love doing the same thing when in a crappy mood.
By the way, what got you in a foul mood? Did Joy Behar moon you??
It's happening again! Postings from bottom to top? I'm all turned around. Lovely day in Chicago today.
@DJ – national rum day – that's what you should be drinking.
Good Morning everyone! Looks like it's gonna be a busy day today at work. I'll try and stop in for lunch and do some troll baiting. Ha!
Good morning all...How is everyone doing today?
Morning all! Still wondering what I should drink to give me a kick-start today after a rather late night...
Vitamin B Complex (or a 5 hour energy). That stuff will keep you alert for a while. No jitters either :)
Good morning all. Earl Grey biscotti and tea out on the sideboard.
Good Morning and goodnight for awhile. :))
Wow! Is this late start Tuesday and I missed the memo?
We were all out celebrating your birthday late last night :)
And I wasn't invited? I'm crushed!
What? I'm never the first one in!
