    If you're heading north, then YOU have a good weekend! Seriously, have a good weekend. As good as my Thursday. Maybe better, but it's not like we'll know about it. Unless you get in a mood again next week and then, yeah, we probably will. (innocently....)

Next I think I will eligible for the training on "paranoid driving."

    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?

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

    I'm a train wreck. This will get ugly. But this locomotive is staying on the tracks and I refuse intervention. Not much time left.
    During the interim, we're off to Mardi Gras festivities.


    EDIT: Maybe this should have been posted in teh vague thread.

    Today RJ and I did two things neither of us have ever done before:

    We went to a pawn shop (yeah, we're both loving "Pawn Stars"; the local place just isn't the same....)

    Saw the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile at our local Wal-Mart

    I've got to figure out how to train my cats to know when it is the weekend. Waking me at work time could be fatal to someone...

    Do they wake you to feed them or just because? Might try leaving the food out overnight.

    so, after an hour, we get out and when I got out to get my sweatpants on and such, I started to see stars so I held onto the railing for a moment and drank some tea to hydrate quick and the next thing I knew I heard someone say "oh you have fallen" - I guess I went over flat on my face - how embarrassing - no alcohol involved, just over heated and dehydrated -

    so they fed me and hydrated me and I went home to a cold house because I ran out of oil while I was away for the last 2 days -

    my head hurts and there is a little bump and a red mark on my nose and my space heaters only got my house up to 56 by morning

    as my Dad used to say, I feel like a Sad Sack
    Liar. You were nude. Please tell use you were in the nude when this happened. Please.

    I log into webinars all the time. Strangely, I always forget to turn on the speakers. On the last one, I asked some lame-ass question at the end that actually got answered!! I logged 1.5 legal CMs for that one.

    Lots of carry-over.

    My work computer does not have speakers. Nonetheless, I am still required to attend webinars. I guess my boss hasn't figure it out yet

    Sometimes I feel sorry for Hubby but not enough to change my habits, and he doesn't seem to mind. My typical around the house attire in winter: jammie bottoms/track pants & long sleeve t-shirt or hooded sweatshirt.

    There is food down all the time since two of the cats are a little bashful about eating with the others. No, Zelda just seems to think that it's time I wake up and comes in and makes her presence known, usually by walking on my neck...
