        Trade you cake for pie?

        January 18, 2013 at 2:27 pm |
        • AleeD®@Sir Biddle

          Ok. But there's not much fur ... ~_~

          January 18, 2013 at 2:31 pm |
        • Sir Biddle

          No fur, no problem....and no hairballs.

          January 18, 2013 at 2:36 pm |
        • AleeD®@Sir Biddle

          Hairballs?! I know that's what it's called, but, dude it is SO not a cat! It's a clam, remember? Before UD came into being?

      The cake with the code would not be considered inappropriate to me. But some of those are genuinely scary.

    Greetings, chums. It's been a busy week. Also, I forgot it was Friday for a bit. No, I don't know how that's possible.

    Minion #3 made some sort of fruit tarts, but she won't tell me what's actually in them. So, enjoy your mystery tarts, everyone.

    No, they aren't made of poison, I just ate two. Personally, I think they might be made of fruity pebbles, but that's just me.

    • Truth™@EGrin

      Can I borrow a minion or two? I am up to my tail in year end stuff at work. Are they good at finance?

      January 18, 2013 at 1:59 pm |
      • Evil Grin

        Minion the Original is pretty good with a calculator. I'm not sure how good he is at finances. I'll send him your way.

        January 18, 2013 at 3:06 pm |
    • AleeD®@Evil Grin

      Lying in wait. I can identify with that. ~_~
      If you have minions to spare, I could use one. Your lady tart-maker would be about right. I could send her with hubby up to the matriarch's birthday this weekend. If she works it right, hubby might not notice the difference and I could take the weekend off.

      January 18, 2013 at 2:30 pm |
      • Evil Grin

        Oh please, feel free! I've had just about enough of er mystery desserts. Maybe they will serve you better than I.

    Abby from 'Dear Abby' died on Wed, huh? Read today in the local paper whe was a resident here from 1944-1955, the next year Moving to San Fran (go niners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and started her column.

    January 18, 2013 at 11:01 am |
    • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

      Interesting piece of information on our homepage at work today.

      Apparently Ann Landers and Abby were both volunteers at our Mayo hospital here in town from 1944-1955, contributing more than 5,000 hours during that time span. There is a picture of the two on the article. Sorry, no link. Internal webpage. Not bad looking ladies. =)

    Good morning all. Seems like Denver has finally gotten out of deep freeze mode, which is nice as I am skiing tomorrow.

    How is everyone doing today?

    January 18, 2013 at 9:35 am |
    • Sir Biddle

      How goes it Truth. I think we're getting your freeze temps now. At least its sunny today. Been raining and crappy all week.

      Since Denver is out who do you have in the NFL picks this weekend? Wouldn't mind seeing a SF/Baltimore Super Bowl myself.

      January 18, 2013 at 9:41 am |
      • Truth™@Biddle

        I am thinking that nobody is getting past New England, personally. JDizz must be happy though about SF.

        How are Mrs. Biddle and the young'uns doing?

        January 18, 2013 at 9:47 am |
        • Sir Biddle

          I think you may be right, but I have to root for the somewhat local team. IS it me or has this season just flown by?

          Mama Biddle is doing well and adjust to going back to work. Both Biddles are doing well and play very well with each other. Hopefully its a sign they'll be good buds growing up though i know they'll have some sibling rivalry there naturally.

          How is life in MHC?

        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

          Unless you're a 49er fan and have seen all their games, you have no idea how powerful this team is. Niners take it all this year. Niners over Patriots in SB, 44-14

    TOTALLY my fault on Klatsch missing this a.m. Sorry about that! It's been a reeeaaaalllllly long week.

    January 18, 2013 at 9:18 am |
    • Sir Biddle

      First time in 2+ years, that's a pretty great record. Don't beat yourself up over it. We're not thinking twice about it, so you don't either.

      January 18, 2013 at 9:31 am |
      • Kat Kinsman

        Thank you! Sarah out it up this morning and sent me a note and my heart just about stopped! I sometimes do them day to day and I sometimes do a few weeks at a time, and I guess I'd run out. Didn't want you to think I don't love y'all.

      What's that silly girl waving at over there?

      January 18, 2013 at 9:50 am |
      • Mary Shannon

        The two of you looked so scared and lonely, lost over at yesterday's party place. Unless....that was your despicable plan to get time away from the rest of us????

        January 18, 2013 at 10:50 am |
        • AleeD®@Mary S & the missing Evil Grin

          Hmmm. "despicable" I like the sound of that. ;) The only plan I was hatching was how to wrangle myself a few rides in the TARDIS – going back in time and all. I wonder if Evil Grin has any plans for making a time machine to help him take over the world – not that Dr. Who would even think of something that ... despicable.

          January 18, 2013 at 11:19 am |
        • AleeD®@Kat

          Is it the word desp!cable that did me in with the modbotz this time?

          January 18, 2013 at 12:29 pm |
        • Evil Grin


          I prefer "lying in wait."

          The minions have tried to build a time machine, but it's not as easy as it looks. However, when they succeed, I will certainly use it to take over the world. Although, that's still easier said than done. Really, I'm not sure a time machine could help much at all, other than to go back and correct mistakes each time, like a live-action choose-your-own-adventure novel.

          January 18, 2013 at 1:56 pm |
    • AleeD®@Mary S

      Hey there, girl waving frantically. Whew, I'm glad this showed up. I did NOT want to do yesterday again. Thanks for the flare!

    Hey! Wake up you sleepy heads! Coffee is on, and cinnamon rolls are in the oven. Grab your cup and a plate. Time to get this day started. May you all have a great day, and an even better weekend!
