    I wonder how they got that name in the first place. Google doesn't name the alley.

    Mmm.. I love cafe mochas. I try not to treat myself to the local coffee shop, but I am glad when I do.
    And that concludes staff’s presentation...

    One of my coworkers half-jokingly, I think, already came up to me and told me that I couldn't have that here because someone had one once and everyone made fun of him for it for about 3 weeks.

    These guys haven't gotten to know me well enough yet I guess.

    Make fun away. I will just bounce it off.

    I never realized how difficult it would be to find a boy version of Elf on a Shelf at Target. 3 stores, all of them sold out.

    My (fair?) city is hiring, in a couple of planning & related areas. PM me if you want the link.

    I think Brownies with frosting are too much. Cake should have frosting, not brownies. There is a density issue at hand.

    One of my best friends growing up had a Husky. We would make her "talk" all the time. There was also music that she woiuld sing to as well. Pretty funny stuff.

    I don't know about sprawl, but I've been putting away more than my fair share of brownies lately, and have found they cause encroachments into required setbacks.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    All of this brownie talk really makes me want to make some brownies and homemade ice cream. Yummm...I think I need some hot fudge now.

    I would really like a treadmill/desk. I don't think the Board will approve that expense though.

    Wait... is this random? or a 1st world problem?
