    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!!

      Agree with you on all games except the Detroit/New Orleans.

      • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

        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.

      • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

        No. =(

        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!

  10. Queen of Everything™@NFL Picks

    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.

    January 6, 2012 at 12:56 pm |

      Here's some Charmin, Wipe twice.

    What happened to Lunchtime Poll???

    January 6, 2012 at 12:51 pm |
    • RichardHead@Jdizz

      Same thing that happened to the Stripper Pole in the Lounge. They call this progress?

      January 6, 2012 at 1:07 pm |
      • RichardHead@Jdizz

        Almost a record...Moderated twice in one Day... WhoooooHoooo. :))

    • AleeD®@Jdizz

      Welcome back. RichHd bought some Poll-ish remover to use on himself and got carried away.

      January 6, 2012 at 1:08 pm |
      • RichardHead@AleeD

        What??? Sir Biddle got a case on sale at the Dollar Store and was just spreading around the wealth.

        January 6, 2012 at 1:22 pm |
      • AleeD®@Rich

        It's been said he spreads alot on the weekends. And frequently, too.

        January 6, 2012 at 1:31 pm |
    • Evil Grin

      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. "

    January 6, 2012 at 11:50 am |
    • RichardHead@Wendy

      According to Truth, "Sleep is over rated". Guess we'll find out on the 18th. :)))

      January 6, 2012 at 11:54 am |
      • wendy@rh

        what happens on the 18th? what'd i miss? :)

        January 6, 2012 at 11:57 am |

        The "Smartest Man" in the room is returning to college. He misses knocking the books out of the dweebs hand on the stairs.:))

        Good for you. Is it at BBQU ?

        January 6, 2012 at 12:13 pm |
    • Mildred

      I have a friend who just had to pull an all-nighter. I think he's allergic to sleep for some reason.

      January 6, 2012 at 12:22 pm |

      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!!

    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.

    January 6, 2012 at 10:52 am |
    • MicheleG™

      would that be a greek greeting?

      January 6, 2012 at 10:56 am |
      • Evil Grin

        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.

      January 6, 2012 at 10:47 am |
      • MicheleG™

        In contrast, the Grand Canyon, at this hour is at 14 degrees at the south rim.

      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.

    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!

      January 6, 2012 at 9:19 am |
      • Phoenix

        We'll see....since the Giants aren't known for consistency anything could happen. Good luck with your Texans.

        Thank you :-) Trying to focus on the wedding and avoid all other thoughts. Thankfully doctor gave me some good meds so that's helping!

        January 6, 2012 at 9:17 am |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@RH@JJ

        I think you mean negative outcome...positive is bad, negative is good in the wonderful medical profession.

        January 6, 2012 at 11:33 am |
      • RichardHead@JBJ

        Is this the "New" related math or Washington "fuzzy" math? I'M SOOOOOO CONFUSED.

        January 6, 2012 at 11:39 am |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@RH

        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'

        January 6, 2012 at 12:26 pm |

        Ahhhhhhhhhh,Me now comprendo! Sooooo, What's the plans for the weekend?

      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).
