HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELVIS......See you in Indy at the Super Bowl.
Good Saturday Morning....Houston has gone Football Crazy. You'd think the Texans were playing the Super Bowl or something. Anyway, Have a Great Weekend my friends.
In honor of Jdizz's return, I think our next lunchtime poll should be Food P0rn....any takers??
Ok all, I am out. And for the record, year end stinks...
The Queen has a crap load of Charmin....Have a Great Weekend Bro.
Do I have too? I don't like this guy,even tho he is from Texas.
Hopping on for a moment for the foodie *squee* double whammy of the year for my area (Albany, NY)...
1) After years of grass roots efforts, we're getting a Trader Joe's!
2) We found out from a job posting that we're getting a Penzey's Spices!!
CIN 17, HOU 14
PIT 28, DEN 17
NYG 21, ATL 19
Wait for it.....
Here it comes....
DET 35, NO 24
Agree with you on all games except the Detroit/New Orleans.
I'm hoping for it. Would rather see Handshake Gate II in SF than host the Ain'ts. But would be nice to beat NO in the 'Stick.
You Boys been smokin' that Wacky Tobacky?
I do have some Adidas shoes that are made from hemp. They're starting to get a little tattered. Combine that with years of foot sweat, should make for a good roast. Either that or end up like those guys in Australia after eating those mushrooms.
Happy Friday all! Hired a babysitter tonight so I can go sit at the bar while my husband bartends. Already salivating for my nice glass of wine. and wood fired pizza.......
You GO, girl! Have lotsa fun! Wood fired pizza sounds divine!
Have a glass for me!
But how do you really feel?
A little turdy (deliberate misspell) told me that I'm late on my picks. Here goes:
Cinncinati: Not much good comes out of this fair city, including their football team. However, tigers eat people, even Texans. Go bengals! Sigfried and Roy send their love.
Denver: I can't bring myself to vote for the Steelers. I still hate Tebow with the fire of a thousand suns. His face makes me want to punch kittens.
NYG: Isn't Eli their QB? If so then I vote for the Giants. If not, then go Falcons!
New Orleans: I think Saints are exempt from the lions eat people rule.
Here's some Charmin, Wipe twice.
What happened to Lunchtime Poll???
Same thing that happened to the Stripper Pole in the Lounge. They call this progress?
Almost a record...Moderated twice in one Day... WhoooooHoooo. :))
Welcome back. RichHd bought some Poll-ish remover to use on himself and got carried away.
What??? Sir Biddle got a case on sale at the Dollar Store and was just spreading around the wealth.
It's been said he spreads alot on the weekends. And frequently, too.
They stopped it, for some reason. Sometimes I do an after-lunchtime poll myself, but it's just not the same. :(
I, too, wish they'd bring it back.
Good day everyone!
I got an invite for a salad lunch with the work fitness club that I was part of... but no one was in the room!
for those of us that suffer from insomnia.. apparently that is a good thing according to the great Virginia Woolf:
"Sleep, that deplorable curtailment of the joy of life. "
According to Truth, "Sleep is over rated". Guess we'll find out on the 18th. :)))
what happens on the 18th? what'd i miss? :)
The "Smartest Man" in the room is returning to college. He misses knocking the books out of the dweebs hand on the stairs.:))
ahhhhhhhh. nice!! :) that's right. to be a paramedic i believe? i start back the first week of february. so ready to keep going!
Good for you. Is it at BBQU ?
I have a friend who just had to pull an all-nighter. I think he's allergic to sleep for some reason.
well, here's to having it only ONCE in a long while.
Finally Friday and a GOOD day! Got the 2nd quote for clean up last night and it's *only* $2,000!! Woo hoo. On another note we have been trying to sell our other timeshare week in Hawaii since September, and the realtor had an offer for me this morning, so that will put the $$ back in my vacation coffers for the cruise. :)
Welcome back Wendy and Evil Grin!!
Thanks for releasing my moderated comments!
Just doing our job,M'am.
Γεια σας, chums. Hope you are doing well this morning.
The minions made a pan of lasagna each, for some reason, so lunch is on me! They will be bringing them in around 12.
would that be a greek greeting?
Correct! I am continuing my mission to greet in a different language each day. None of which I actually know myself, so my apologies for any errors.
Good morning, glories! Got pulled over on my way to work this morning but managed to avoid the ticket. go me!
Sounds like we should change your name to LeadFoot. Have you tried leaving home earlier?
Sadly, I wasn't running late and I was driving my usual speed.
the Surf is UP today! Thank you Japan for your big storms....our surf is running in sets with occasional waves up to 12 and 14 feet. Wow!
In contrast, the Grand Canyon, at this hour is at 14 degrees at the south rim.
Morning, What's going on in the Left Coast?
My comment is awaiting moderation....all I said was the surf is WAY UP today from Point Conception south. And I thanked Japan for the storms that churned up the waves for us.....12 and 14 footers.
If my com ments were not all b eing mod er a ted I co uld tell you ab out the S U R F....really Hi gh S U RF
Good Morning everyone!! I'm still kicking... albeit far away from the klatsch most days... scrambled eggs and bacon for everyone! Happy New Year! Here's a toast of apple juice to hoping that this year goes much better than last.... the holiday season was especially hard for me this year so i kinda dropped out of the social scene in every way and neglected my friends, online and otherwise. but my self imposed exile is now over...onwards and upwards we go! :) TGIF!
Good Morning BBQ Babe.....Glad your back with us. We ALL missed you.
Happy Fellow Friday Klatschers. Mucinex D and a good night's sleep got me up to about 90% today. Thank you for the recommendation Phoenix. ;) What have I missed?
I got Moderated 'cuz I'm Special...HA!! Glad your feeling better Sista'--I left a Kleenex trail from Katy to Dallas and back again.
I'm very glad it worked for you and you're feeling better, AleeD. Have a good weekend and keep up the healing!!
What up snot rocket?
It's snot easy being green.
Thanks for the kind thoughts gang.
Morning Bro--Did you get any money from your City Councilman?
Nope, I'm a little too wonder bread to get those benefits.
He played the race card....I knew it.
Can"t we all jus get along?
Don't Taze me Bro !!
Just a quick Hello from me today, multi-tasking on a conference call. Have a great Friday!
Furry ((((((((HUGS))))))))) sent your way. BTW-–The Giants are going down on Sunday.
We'll see....since the Giants aren't known for consistency anything could happen. Good luck with your Texans.
The Niners will DOMINATE the bye week.
Shouldn't that be The Bi-Week?
I mean, Rim Job!
You missed the feltching conversation gonig on Wednesday...
I saw it. Didn't have time to get in on it. Reminds me, I will be getting a slushy at lunch.
Good morning and Happy Friday! Have my wedding checklist ready to go for this weekend and in a holding pattern waiting for the test results to come back.
Morning....WD and I are sending our Best possible thoughts and prayers your way for a positive outcome.
Thank you :-) Trying to focus on the wedding and avoid all other thoughts. Thankfully doctor gave me some good meds so that's helping!
I think you mean negative outcome...positive is bad, negative is good in the wonderful medical profession.
Is this the "New" related math or Washington "fuzzy" math? I'M SOOOOOO CONFUSED.
Just think of it as if your tests come back positive, you are skrewed, but if they are negative, you are golden. It's the secret codes docs use to justify their outrageous salaries...just sayin'
Ahhhhhhhhhh,Me now comprendo! Sooooo, What's the plans for the weekend?
i've missed so much these last few months... here's some good positive thoughts coming your way!
While I wait to get UN-Moderated...Let's NOT forget Sunday, January 8th. It's The Kings Birthday-R.I.P. Elvis....and don't forget to flush.
Elvis is the man. TCOB
'Morning Bro...Looks like we have the lounge to ourselves...Nice quiet start to a Friday here. What's up in your neck of the woods...
Good Morning Bro.....This town has gone Football crazy. People are getting Texans tattoos,painting their faces Red & Blue and Alot of Horny women,( to clarify-they are wearing Bull Horns). I imagine Denver is going through the same thing. I get the feeling The Texans will be One and Done though.
Ohhhhh Yeah, Start the New Year out right...My first Moderation...Whoooooopeee!! HA!!
What Day is it Kidz? TGIF--^5. Finally. We gotz coffee,OJ,Hot Chocolate, Tea and Apple Fritters. Better grab a couple before The Queen gets here.
