    1. Adult entertainment ordinance is being pulled from the Council agenda.
    2. I really don't care.
    3. I'm losing the desire to try and convince people of the merits of sound urban planning.
    4. When asked what I do for a living, I may just start answering "bureaucrat".
    5. Just hear from the CM. He's keeping it on the agenda. This is gonna be fun.

    1. Like the little personalized celebratory header on my page!
    2. With the warmer weather today, I'm trying out some new metallic flats (no trouser socks!)
    3. My sister officially asked me to be a bridemaid yesterday, so exicted to be in her wedding-I also like her colors, so I won't be stuck with a horribly-colored dress for my pasty complextion. Will probably do a spray tan anyways, I did that for the last wedding I was in and it worked out nicely. Yes, fb friends, that profile picture of me, I have a spray tan in it.
    4. Some one just gave me the brush-off, but I ignored it and smiled like a champ-won't let that ruin my day
    5. Can you tell I'm in a bbetter mood today ?

    1. I have a tummy ache.
    2. I spent a lot of money on my new glasses and the lens are wonky.
    3. I feel like I have fish eyes.
    4. When Hubby and I were dating we discussed that our cat would be named Fish Eyes.
    5. We went with Loki and Yeti instead.

    1. 10am "informal" tax assessment review meeting. Went well, hard for them to argue there are improvements to assess when it's a vacant lot!
    2. Got a little pissy with the community organizing team about not getting the bagged trash out of the community playground that have been sitting there for 3 months. I told them to call X in Sanitation for a pickup or cart it down the street to my residential property the night before garbage day....and clean the new trash up too while you are at it!
    3. My NSP compliance reports are nearly done. Snooze fest.
    4. Almost finished with one of my new construction projects, maybe 10 days of work left.
    5. My boss is vacillating between being disengaged and micromanaging. Guess which one I prefer?

    5. if you want to play in Michigan you gotta have Bob Seger in the band

    1. Went to doc this a.m. about a suspicious spot on my forehead
    2. He says it's benign.
    3. Phew!
    4. Going to have it taken off and checked anyway.
    5. His assistant says it will end my forehead modelling career.

    If I'd known there was such a thing, I would gotten an agent. No foresight, I guess.

    1. Today is January 29, I'm north of the Mason Dixon line, and I didn't have to carry or wear a coat outside.
    2. My chairman is in the next room and I don't really care.
    3. I could use a nap.
    4. This office is a mess.
    5. I could use a nap, yes I know it's on here twice.

    1. Dentist visit went okay, but my wisdom teeth have to come out.
    2. You're all thinking about wisdom jokes aren't you! Go ahead, I already know I don't have any.
    3. I'm stuck reading some Expo Center deal the county and city made.
    4. It was nice this morning, now it's colder and windy.
    5. When does Friday get here?

    1. I'd rather post five things today than ten on Thursday.
    2. Medical and vet appointments, while necessary, are taking too much time out of my busy week.
    3. My tummy hurts.
    4. You know you're stressed when you have a mini-tantrum because you can't find the staple-remover.
    5. It's supposed to reach 50 degrees here tomorrow... yessssss!

    1. I was born on a Tuesday, how appropriate
    2. I've got the song "Tuesday Afternoon" by the Moody Blues in my head
    3. Wherever we go for dinner tonight, there must be something chocolate on the dessert menu - that's a requirement
    4. The sun is shining today... that makes me happy
    5. I really like Luminosity, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do when my free subscription runs out.

    3. This Saturday is our Mardi Gras party.
    4. This Saturday is also the Too Cute! episode with baby bunnies!
    5. Do you think my guests would mind if I turn on the tv and curl up on the couch for an hour to indulge in baby bunnies?

    1. In the days of my youth I was told what it means to be a man
    2. Now I've reached that age I try to do all of those things the best I can
    3. No matter how I try I still find my way to the same old jam
    4. Good times bad times you know I've had my share
    5. When my woman left home with a brown-eyed man, well, I still don't seem to care

    1. I would like to get paid more.
    2. I would like to make decisions without having seven people give me approval.
    3. I would like some more respect.
    4. I am tired of doing everything.
    5. I fear the future. Kind of.

    1. I wish we could get rid of our rental house.
    2. I rest a little easier knowing we were able to buy a second house in case we need to take drastic measures with the first.
    3. At this point, I don't think a short sale would even work on the rental house based on the tax implications and what we need.
    4. I don't think I could morally do a strategic foreclosure.
    5. I guess we're stuck with it for now.
