    Hey, hey, hay! Happy busy Saturday here, mom's flight took off without her, so now picking her up at Leave for the airport tomorrow to fly out to Copenhagen via Paris. Trying to trial pack today, somewhat, but will probably put it off until tomorrow and see what goes and what stays. :)

    I know a lot of people who want one of those IVs...

    I just had a really awesome team birthday lunch at a local Italian restaurant. Still had to refrain from licking the plate (Tortellini alla Panna).

    Good morning class, and HAPPY FRIDAY, HAPPY LAST DAY OF WORK FOR TWO WEEKS!! Can you tell I'm excited??

    Only glitch is shore excursion group just sent me an email and said our friend's passport information is incorrect...ugh. We'll never get in (or out) of Russia this way! I'm on short timer mode today, a couple of meeting this morning, then lunch, then hit the bank (not literally), the doc, then home sweet home. :)

        All new flowers were happily planted in multiple baskets, boxes and flower pots by 8:00 pm last night, everyone was watered and happy. Now I just have to keep Furry 2 from eating them as she runs by.

      At the museum tomorrow AM, which will (hopefully) be followed by a shake at GSE – SirB will you be around?
      Sunday I'll be in DC again, going to see Taming of the Shrew with hubby and in-laws followed by Matchbox :-)

      May 18, 2012 at 10:58 am |
      • Sir Biddle@JJ

        I am doing a mud-run (see also When is your GSE shake adventure?

        May 18, 2012 at 11:48 am |
        • JainaJade@SirB

          one of my coworkers is doing the one in September....I prefer the zombie runs myself. Should be at GSE around 2PM tomorrow, will depend on how slammed the museum is.

          May 18, 2012 at 12:42 pm |
        • Sir Biddle@JJ

          I'll be sloshing thourgh mud while you're enjoying a nice cool frosty shake. I'm going to plan on the zombie on in the fall.

      Flummoxed in Florida: I have no clue what we're doing this weekend. I'm going to do my darndest to sleep in and maybe we'll take in a movie at some point.

    Good morning! This has been a crazy crazy week, so very thankful it's Friday!!! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and my boss seems to be in a great mood.
    One week until the hubby and I leave for Austria and London :-)

      Hope you both have an exciting trip. Take pictures and wave to The Real Queen for us please.

    Good Morning Fearless Leader....You always ask for story ideas,so here is a Whopper.
    Announced yesterday at The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington,Texas a New food item. A 2 foot long,one pound Bratwurst with sauerkraut,and you can also add grilled onions,nacho cheese,jalapenos and chili.
    This was made in Honor of # 32 Josh Hamilton and will be called " The Great Bratbino " ( Take THAT NY Mets fans ).
    IMHO this will be a " smash hit " , and as the immortal Babe Ruth looks down and smiles on Josh Hamilton playing Centerfield,He will utter these words.." Josh will forever be known as......."The Sultan of Brat ". :)

      Is it wrong that I want to try that? For science?

          Oddly,that resembles the new Apple 3d map of my backyard. How's the toe?

        • DJChilllyPhil, Jukebox King & Cold Stone God@RichardHead

          Doing better today, though still hobbling around just for the sake of not risking stepping on it wrong and undoing whatever healing it has accomplished so far. Gotta be careful with these kind of things...

    • Sir Biddle@RH

      Considering a regular hotdog can run you close to $10, I can only imagine the cost of this two-foot temptation.

      May 18, 2012 at 9:26 am |
      • RichardHead@SirB

        Like the 2 foot Hot Dog introduced earlier in the season,it will also cost $26.00. That can feed a family of 4. Such a Deal and don't forget the brewski's.

        May 18, 2012 at 9:30 am |
        • Sir Biddle@RH

          Very valid point on the brewskis. Don't forget your pocket flask either.

  11. Queen of Everything@The Gentlemen of the Klatsch

    Sorry, boys. That looks like neither coffee nor bourbon. I'll spare you what it reminds me of.

    May 18, 2012 at 8:44 am |
    • RichardHead@Queenie

      Can you give us a hint? Have you been sleeping under the desk again?

      May 18, 2012 at 9:03 am |
    • AleeD®@QOE & Kat

      It doesn't look like anything would go into a body, that's for sure.

      Kat, thanks for the IV pic. I coulda used one of those this morning when things were so crazy 'round here.

      May 18, 2012 at 12:32 pm |
  12. Truth™

    Good morning all, and it looks like someone took their IV therapy class a little too seriously.

    Happy Friday, and how is everyone doing today?

  13. The Witty One@The Picture

    Haahaha! That was totally me last week :)

    Morning all. I guess i'll put the coffee on cause the slackers slept in. I brought bagels! Come and get 'em!

    May 18, 2012 at 8:04 am |
    • Sir Biddle@Wittious Coffeeous

      Looks more like bourbon in the IV than coffee. That would be a good thing....welll maybe for a very short time until you die form blood posioning....then that would be a bad thing.

      May 18, 2012 at 8:08 am |
    • RichardHead--Slacker Emeritus

      Thanks for the spiked coffee this morning Boys. Plans for the Weekend?
