1. Harumph: Five Things Thursday never came up in my new posts list today, so I almost missed it.
2. I just participated in a dumb survey so I could claim $5... dumb. :r:
3. The last two days have been busy ones, and that makes me feel both more confident and more optimistic (even though my financial status hasn't changed).
4. I don't know what btrage's comment about "tigers bringing out the brooms" means, but now I can't get the song "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" out of my head.
5. "History Detectives" is on TV tonight. :)

1. When you make an appointment with a Big Cheese Planner, don't assume you are in the same time zone (one hour late).
2. When you receive a Public Information Request and don't know how to respond, don't ignore it and and hope it goes away then have a Big Cheese Planner make everything right.
3. I think the Giants are going to lose tonight.
4. It's spelled "racist."
5. I hope to get a couple of more days of swimming in the pool this weekend (water was 86°F on Sunday).

1. Some Big Cheese Planners don't know that they're full of holes.
2. A little wavy red line under a word probably means you're spelling it wrong.
3. I've got to cut back working to one day a week, there are too many other things I want to do.
4. Volunteer work is much more satisfying than paid work, except for the paid part.
5. I think I'll take tomorrow off.

1. I'm not lifting a damn thing!
2. It's a gray day, I don't like gray days.
3. Baseball is boring on television but a damn sight better than a debate.
4. Going to go build a couple rain barrels after work.
5. The news about BUN has cast a pall on this day.

2. I don't like that idea.

4. They are also proposing rebuilding the school and there has not been 1 public notice sign on the property. :-@:-{

1. I like to read these threads, but I find it hard to post without asking a bunch of questions...

2. My old boss dropped by for a visit. That was nice. Wish he'd come back or I'd get promoted at least.

3. It was "Walk Your Child to School" day today, and I missed it.

4. I wish I was a stay-at-home dad or trophy husband.

5. Feeling lots of Bear solidarity today. All hope is aimed "North" today.

1. I too am struggling with depression now
2. We took Junior to Cornwell's Turkeyville this weekend and he had a whale of a good time. His favorite activity was riding the 1/8th model trains.
3. Other than Sunda,y we've seen pretty much gray skies and/or rain every day for a week and a half now.:(
4. It will be fun to take Junior trick-or-treating - he's going as a skeleton this year
5. Now I am going to finish the leftover #8 Jersey Giant sub I got for lunch yesterday

Bonus 6. I've had this song stuck in my head for several days - seems to go with the weather and my mood

1. I found a groupon to Russia and Finland including airfare. I want to go.
2. I have ADD when it comes to vacation planning.
3. Hubby and I are supposed to go on a trek through the Great Plains next summer.
4. My knee still hurts and is still swollen but I'm starting to think, "well, maybe I can push it and still run in January's race."
5. We're going to WI for Thanksgiving and bringing the two large black dogs with us. Should be interesting.

4. Sadly, I don't think my tummy particularly needs it
5. Today I had to break out my lined jacket for the first time since spring.
