Thread: Five Things Tuesday

  1. #51
    1) Got up to take the kids to school so Mrs. G could sleep in.
    2) Daughter and I giggled as Chester the Fat Cat sat and scooped food from his bowl so he could eat it off the floor.
    3) Had a Sunday-like morning with the newspaper, but there's so little of it now that I'd read pretty much everything in under an hour.
    4) Started The Greater Journey by David McCullough after the paper. Fantastic so far.
    5) I hear David McCullough's voice and his cadence when I read his writing. It's a little creepy in a really cool way.

    Bonus:
    6) We're going to vote shortly then off to lunch at a restaurant with the best selection of beers anywhere in s. Indiana. Plus excellent pizza/calzones, etc.

    1. Had an impromptu lunch date with Hubby.
    2. We went for all-you-can-eat sushi.
    3. I got some bad sushi. Not bad as in turned but bad as in not good.
    4. Tonight I will go for an x-ray of the metallic artifacts in my knee.
    5. This time next week I'll be in Pittsburgh.
    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. -Martin Luther King Jr.

    1. I get melancholy every now and then. lt's a disease common to mountain men.

    2. Now is one of those times.

    3. Sometimes while waiting for the other shoe to drop, I wonder from far up will it hit me.

    4. Snow is pretty awesome for the first three days, then it is a pain in the tush.

    5. But children sledding does make me smile.

    1. Thanksgiving meal planning has begun.
    2. After a very mild winter last year, I'm hoping for a brutally cold winter with lots of snow.
    3. I normally would never say that, but for work and school we have virtually no commute of any great length now.
    4. Plus the Great Lakes really need the water.
    5. As do our winter tourism businesses.

    1. I too wouldn't object to a nasty winter this year. I'm talking about the type of snowstorms where they close City Hall.
    2. Remember all that weight I lost a few weeks back? I managed to find it once again!
    3. I've never done the Secret Santa thing for the 8.5 years I've been on Cyburbia, I wonder if I should this year
    4. I am nearly out of the cases of Aecht Schlenkerla and Old Rasputin I picked up in Frankenmuth a couple months ago. Time for another run?
    5. Remember all those cool economic geography maps that showed what's produced where? Seems like you never see 'em anymore.

    1. I really want to take tomorrow off.
    2. I'm liking the somewhat warmer weather that we're experiencing in Metro Detroit.
    3. But I'm still hoping for at least one blizzard event this winter.
    4. I like the show Intervention.
    5. Putting Xmas lights up on my 2-story colonial may prove somewhat tricky.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    2. I don't tweet
    3. I wonder why fashion changes. There must be some logical basis for it that you can't see
    4. fun words to say include "ferret", "chugging", "fractal", and "zither"
    5. It looks like I may end up preparing the Turkey Day feast. Mrs. Maister is very much under the weather

    I recognize the first three languages: spanish, german, and french, but that fourth one is simply greek to me.

    1. The idea of someone eating grape leaves for a meal is making me think of the Dali Lama (sp?) ...

    2. I'm quitting Pepsi. Everyone has been warned to stay away from me for the next two weeks while my head caves in...

    3. I often think things are funny when I should be wracked with guilt. I'm just wrong on the inside. Wrong.

    4. I went to see "Lincoln" the other night and during his big argument with Mary Todd I couldn't help but see my wife and I. I'm not comparing myself to Lincoln's greatness, just his demeanor while fighting with the most important person in his life. Love - Hate...it's all the same.

    5. I made chocolate chip cookies last night at 1:45 a.m. I am the world's best husband today.

    1. There is no toilet paper in the office. None.
    2. There is also no letter size paper in the office.
    3. I've been uber productive today. Two site visits, a Home Depot run, 5 requisitions processed and it's barely noon.
    4. I have a lot to do between today and tomorrow 10am: bake pumpkin bread and a turtle cake, pack my clothes and the baby's stuff, oil change and car wash.
    5. I need lunch.

    1] Taking my daughter to the orthodontist this afternoon.
    2] He's not happy with her brushing and is threatening to remove the braces if she doesn't do a better job.
    3] She brushes twice a day, every day, but apparently not to his satisfaction.
    4] Mrs G is really perturbed at the situation and it will be a very uncomfortable house tonight if the braces come off.
    5] I know I'm dreading this trip more than my daughter.

    4. WP MathA, shift E will give you the degree symbol
    5. November ended up being an very expense month. When it rains, it pours.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    1. I did not sleep well last night - fretting about work
    2. I wonder if a 'Bonanza' tv show reboot would be viable?
    3. Would a 'slacker Bonanza' show be viable, or at the very least funny enough to garner some critical acclaim?
    4. Based on the latest reports Michael Jackson is still dead
    5. Everyone at the Thanksgiving table took turns saying what they were thankful for - Junior said Pokemon
